Framesets easy question

Medium Priority

I have a frameset with 2 frames...

The left hand frame displays a page with links on it.
How can I get the links to change the right frame only?

Hi shuboarder,
specify the name of the frame in which you want to show links in the "Default target for links in frame" property of the frame with links.

Hope this helps,
Marko

In the left hand frame, open the Frame properties (not the Frameset properties) and set the right hand frame as "Default target for links in frame"

Shuboarder's question was posted in 03:27, we both reacted immidiately and our time is 03:32.
How is that possible? Geographical issue maybe?

Wow.... that was fast.

ok, for the bonus points how can I make the hotspot link change colour on mouse over?

On your marks, get set.....

GO!

shuboarder,
Look at CalEntry - Refresh image in your Image resources in mail template.

Hope this helps,

shuboarder,
you have to create double image, side by side, right one normal and left when moused over.
Then import it in image resources and specify Images accross 2.

Look at designer's help for more about Image resources, you can have 8 images side by side (every position means something).

Hope this helps,

Ahhh :)

Now I hope the Frame contains a Page, and the Page contains an embedded Outline... In the Embedded Outline Properties, on the 2nd tab, you can set for every level the colours that will be used. At the bottom you will find settings for the Normal, Selected and Moused colours.

Hotspot Sjef, hotspot :)

Commented:
shuboarder,
something else about previous question:
if you're opening design element from code use @SetTargetFrame or NotesUIWorkspace.SetTargetFrame before "launching".

Hope this helps,

Hotspots are terribly old-fashioned...

I'd like to do embedded outlines and bring myself into the 21st century,
but I'm still learning, and this seems a lot easier at the moment.

I'll get there eventually.....

It'll take you 10 minutes to get the general idea of an outline... Just create one in some test database, create some entries for views and save the outline. Then, create a Page and embed the newly created outline on it. Last step is to select the Page in the left-hand frame of your frameset.

Those double picture images for mouse-over effects are nice, but very clumsy and error-prone...

Commented:
You're right again!

10 minutes, and I've got the idea.
It's faster than the hotspot links and the mouse over effect is achieved much more easily.

Thanks.
