Hello,

Our page looks like this:

L

F

How can we write the links in the left frame to target BOOKMARKS in the upper and lower frames?

Many thanks,

function doit(frameName, bkmark)
{
top.[frameName].location=top.[frameName].location.toString()+bkmark
}
//-->
</script>
</head>
<body>
<iframe name='theFrame' src='c://Documents and Settings/Vinny/My Documents/GrassBlade/dHTML/scrollDiv.html'></iframe>
<a href="#" onclick='doit('upperFrame','#rose');return false'>gothere</a>
<a href="#" onclick='doit('lowerFrame','#daisy');return false'>gothere</a>
</body>
</html>

substitute 'upper/lowerFrame' with the real name of the frames

Your frameset page...
<FRAMESET COLS="20%,80%">
  <FRAME NAME="leftFr" SRC="left.htm">
  <FRAMESET COLS="20%,80%">
    <FRAME NAME="topFr" SRC="top.htm">
    <FRAME NAME="botFr" SRC="bot.htm">
  </FRAMESET>
</FRAMESET>

And in left.htm...
<a href="content.htm" target="topFr">
<a href="bottom.htm" target="botFr">

Simplified versions for clarity:

The Main Frameset - notice that the left frame "does not" have a default target set.
***********
<html>
<head>
</head>
<frameset cols="150,*">
  <frame name="left" scrolling="no" noresize src="left.html">
  <frameset rows="20%,*">
    <frame name="upperframe" src="upper.html">
    <frame name="lowerframe" src="lower.html">
  </frameset>
  <noframes>
  <body>
  <p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>
  </body>
  </noframes>
</frameset>
</html>

Left Frame: - The target location of the links is set in the actual link itself
********
<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
<p><a href="upper.html#happy" target="upperframe">Happy Faces</a></p>
<p><a href="lower.html#sad" target="lowerframe">Sad Faces</a></p>
</body>
</html>

Your bookmarks are coded like this:

in upper.html
**********
<p><a name="happy">My Happy Faces</a></p>


in lower.html
**********
<p><a name="sad">My Sad Faces</a></p>

Let me know if any of that isn't clear...

Thanks,
GM
