My app is showing graphical information with the user being able to click on a graphical sector (via image maps) to allow drill down capabilities into the data. To prevent the screen refreshing each time (and giving a flicker effect) Im using numerous frames and just updating each frame in turn depending upon the level of current drill down. (ie clicking in frame 1 populates frame 2, click in frame 2 populates frame 3 etc).To give the impression of a complete web page I have disabled the frame scroll bars.
BTW Im using this approach as I dont know of a method of adding images (along with the appropriate updated image map info) into an existing HTML page that contains a table.
Q - With my current set up the user is unable to scroll down the 'whole' web page to see additional information located at the bottom of the browser. I have tried putting my page contaning the numerous frames into a top level frame (with this frames scroll bar enabled - ie to try and create a window) but this doesnt work. Is there a way to do the this type of thing?
