Hi,
I have 3 frames. When I select some thing(link) in first frame it displays the results in 2nd frame and if I select some thing(link) in 2nd frame that result will display in 3 rd frame. My requirment is 3rd frame should refresh along with 2nd frame while selecting a link in 1st frame.
Basically I want to show a default page in 3rd frame every time when 2nd frame is refreshed.

Thanks,
Venkat.

Do the links in first frame this way:

<a href="JavaScript:;" onClick="top.frames[1].location='frame2url';top.frames[2].location='frame3url';return false">

Not exactly, but like below

<A HREF="Home.htm" target="frame2"><B><FONT SIZE=2>Home</B></FONT></A>

Well you can only load one frame on the href, and you can only have one target, so it could be combined this way:
<A HREF="Home.htm" target="frame2" onClick="top.frames[2].location='frame3url';return false"><B><FONT SIZE=2>Home</B></FONT></A>

Why not use 'replace' or 'reload(true)'?

i would also be interested in your "solution" vthoutam as what cd& has posted provides the answer to your question, the way you have asked here.

I am using a java script to do this.

<A HREF="Home.htm" onClick="fun()" >

<script language = "JavaScript">
function fun()
{
window.parent.framename2.document.location.href = "two.htm";
window.parent.framename3.document.location.href = "three.htm";
}
</script>

vhoutam,

you first posted your sample HTML:
>>
<A HREF="Home.htm" target="frame2"><B><FONT SIZE=2>Home</B></FONT></A>
<< 
and said that is the solution you are looking for.

Based on what you posted, it was clear that the home.htm was to be loaded in frame2.

and this is the original question:
>>
My requirment
is 3rd frame should refresh along with 2nd frame while selecting a link in 1st frame.
<<

thus, what cd& has posted
>>
<A HREF="Home.htm" target="frame2" onClick="top.frames[2].location='frame3url';return false"><B><FONT
SIZE=2>Home</B></FONT></A>
<<
is correct.

You owe an apology to cd&. Firstly, your so-called solution is technically NOT the same as what you asked for. Because it loads pages in 3 frames and not two as you asked (3rd frame and 2nd frame).

I'm asking for moderator review on it.  

You can keep you pitiful points, as far as I am concerned. I act with integrity and expect the same from those I help.  It is obvious to me that your intent was to get an answer without having to give up any points.  I answer the initial question and when you qualified it in a followup I answer that as well.  

The "solution" you posted does not do what you asked for.

Hello all!  vthoutam, I feel as if there is a misunderstanding here.  I too am an Expert as well as an Admin for the site.  Cd&'s comment IS the answer to the question you asked.  I have several PC's here in my Home office.  One XP, which I currently use for personal, and EE.  I have an Me Box, a Win98 Box and one that is just plain old MS-DOS 6.22.

I use these machines to test many theroies, and or to use to solved others problems.

The info give is the correct information, verbatum.

This question will be awarded to Cd&.  I hope you realize this is the right thing to do, as your explination is lacking the requseted material.

Kind regards,
ComTech
CS Admin @ EE
