Changing Frameset properties using Java Script

We have a frame set that has two rows with frames.  The top frame will display a search result and when the user clicks on a item in the serach result the bottom frame will display that web page.

We would like to be able to change the size of the rows in the frame set when the user clicks on an entry in the search result.  When an entry is selected the top frame will shrink in size and the bottom frame will increase in size.

Can this be done in Java script and how ?

Yes, it can be done:

<a href="somehwere.htm" target="bottom_frame" onClick="window.parent.framesetname.rows='50,*'">

But you'll have to name your frameset, like so:

<frameset name="framesetname" rows="100,*">
<frame src="url.htm">
<frame src="url.htm">

Let me know the results!

It works great.  Thanks for your help, I was missing the name="" on the frameset, once I had that everything worked.
