the navigation frames in vb.net

hi all,
I work an aplication using vb.net and want to make two frames. First frame (upper frame) is for search criteria and bottom frame is for search result of some database. When I press submit button in upper frame, result should appear in bottom frame. How can I do this. It was easy in asp (<frame name=fr1 src=... target="fr2">
       <frame name=fr2 src=... > ) but in asp.net we don't have target attribute of frame tag.

thanks in advice

Drop a two panels on the form.  Top one is for search critera bottom one is for results.

Add a listbox to the bottom panel or any other type of component that you want to use to display the results.

Then on the submit button click event handler just add the results to the list box like

  Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        ListBox1.Items.Add("Result1")
        ListBox1.Items.Add("result2")
    End Sub

Of course the hard part is brining back a string array of the results for your actually search critera.

Ok perry,
but I need two pages, top one stays fixed, but bottom one can scroll independently of top one. I made this in last version of application  (ASP). In aspx version, I created the frames where are placed the pages which should be there. But when I press submit button, results appear in the top one frame (it should appear in the bottom one). When I comment line response.redirect("bottom.aspx") in the top page, results don't appear nowhere. I want to see results in bottom page in bottom frame which I can scroll and at the same time I can see criteria in top page in top frame. I'm not sure can I do this with the panels because I'm beginer. If I can, could you tel me how, please.

Thanks
