I have a script in my webpage that goes a little like this

<script language="JavaScript">
<!---
       function pass() {
          var password = prompt("Password required for this area:", "")
          var location = password + ".html";
          this.location.href = location;
       }
// --->
</script>

i put it on a link that i create, and it opens a location if the correct name is used

is there a way i can use this in frames

instead of calling this.location

calling the main fram as the place to open the location

thanks

then just use

main.location.href


<script language="JavaScript">
<!---
     function pass() {
        var password = prompt("Password required for this area:", "")
        var loc = password + ".html";
        main.location.href = loc;
     }
// --->
</script>
