Hi,

I have a few frames on my website.

Top
Left (menu)
Main (content area)

my index page's title is always displayed on the title bar, regardless of which menu item and page is displayed.  Can I programmatically change the titlebar of IE when I click a menu item?

thanks,

knoxxx

Put the following code in header of the menu item pages you are loading within the frameset. it will override the title defined by the frameset's parent:


<script language=javascript>
parent.document.title = "Title for Menu Item 1";
</script>
