hi,

another prob here.
can i use target in my url when i use header for redirect?

example:
header("location:start.php");

but, start.php will actually load 2 frames (one top, one down), and i only want either the down-frame to reload, or load start.php in _parent (or _self)

(somehow i assume this will require javascript, hope i'm wrong)

cheers
Ricky

I think you have to use Javascript for this. To reload one frame with javascript:

in start.php:

<script>
top.frames[1].location.href='newUrl.html?random='+Math.random();
</script>

You could also use location.reload() to reload the frame.

This sounds like a javascript solution to me as well... I would have to see more of the setup to know for sure though. You can't use target in a php header, unfortunately. The header will simply redirect to the page specified, and only in the frame that contains the header.

There may be another solution though, but please post a little more detail about what you are trying to do.

Thanks

"or load start.php in _parent (or _self)"

Is this always the case? start.php will ALWAYS need to open in the parent, and not be contained within a frame?

If so, then you may be able to simply do the following inside the start.php script:

Add this javascript line into start.php, which will force start.php to reload itself as the parent when it is called.

<script language="javascript">
if(top!=self){top.location=self.location;}
</script>

I am not sure if this is what you are talking about. Let me know.

btw, batalf,

your example 'seems' to work (seems logic) but it only refreshed the top-frame (even if i change the 1 to 0, or to the frame-name)

cheers
