Need to use frames...content and bottom

Content frame continually refreshes with Javascript, which refeshes and get the data in an application variable that stores all the text.

Bottom frame is where they enter the chat words, which are put into application variable.

Thanks a lot.
Don't like continually refreshing!
Can I do something so that only when I click a button, the remove side refreshs.

Yes, then you don't need frames, and you can just use 1 form...
