I have a document with 3 frames, and I need to run a function when the user resizes the window.  

Here is how I am handling the event:

<SCRIPT FOR="window" EVENT="onresize" LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
      doFunc();
</SCRIPT>

The problem is, when the window is resized, the function runs 3 times, once for each frame.  How can I get it to only run once?

Where did you keep this code?
In a frame or in html file containing frameset?
