I have 2 html frames.  I want the left hand side one to finish loading before the right hand side one begins to load.  Is this possible?

Thanks

Just create a blank html page with the following code, put this page as the right hand page in your frameset.  It will redirect to the real page with content.  Just change the time if you need to.  It's set at 5 seconds.  Also change the url to point to the page you want to load in the right hand frame.

<!-- Blank.html -->
<html><head>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" content="5;URL=http://www.yoursite.com/yourpage.htm">
</head>
<body></body></html>

Is there no way I can say load this.  Once loaded load the right hand frame?  I don't want to specify a time.

Thanks for the suggestion.

You would be better loading the right hand frame from the left hand frames onLoad event, for example, the 3 files would look like:

index.html:
-------------
<HTML>
  <HEAD>
    <TITLE>Load left then right frame example</TITLE>
  </HEAD>

  <FRAMESET FRAMESPACING="0" BORDER="0" COLS="200,*" FRAMEBORDER="0">
    <FRAME NAME="contents" SRC="./leftFrame.html" SCROLLING="auto" TARGET="main" NORESIZE>
    <FRAME NAME="main" SRC="" TARGET="_self">

    <NOFRAMES>
    </NOFRAMES>
  </FRAMESET>
</HTML>


leftFrame.html
-----------------
<HTML>
  <HEAD>
    <TITLE>The left frame</TITLE>
  </HEAD>

  <BODY onLoad="parent.frames['main'].location.href='./rightFrame.html'">
    This is the left frame!
  </BODY>
</HTML>


rightFrame.html
-------------------
<HTML>
  <HEAD>
    <TITLE>The right frame</TITLE>
  </HEAD>

  <BODY>
    This is the right frame!
  </BODY>
</HTML>

<html>
      <frameset cols="200,*" border="0" id="frames">
            <frame id="frame1" src="frame1.htm" onload="document.getElementById('frame2').src='frame2.htm';">
            <frame id="frame2" src="about:blank">
      </frameset>
</html>
