How to use <a href > with parent.frames ?


In a web page, I have a link as <a href > in frame "left" and need to show a second web page in frame "right"... How can I do it?

This gets error:

<a href=''=parent.frames["right"].location.href= 'WebPageToShow.aspx' >
</a>

Thanks!

You can also just do this:

<a href="WebPageToShow.aspx" target=right>Click</a>

Also, make sure you've named the frames, or else it won't work:

<frameset cols=50%,50%>
<frame name=left src=left.htm>
<frame name=right src=right.htm>
</frameset>

Better than

<a href="#" onclick='parent.frames["right"].location.href= "WebPageToShow.aspx"' > </a>
would be


<a href="#"
onclick="parent.frames['right'].location.href='WebPageToShow.aspx';
return false" >... </a>

but lil_puffballs suggestion is the most sensible unless you MUST use script
