Breaking out of frames

Posted on 2006-04-27

I'm using frames and need to break out of the frameset when a person logs off inside one of the frames. Part of the logoff procedure is to clean up several tables in the database and then send the visitor back to the login page. Cflocation won't break out of the frameset. How can I automatically send the visitor outside of the frameset to the login page?

Thanks for your help!

    After reading my question I realized I didn't make myself very clear. With that said, I was able to figure it out. The problem was that I needed a way to "automatically" redirect a visitor back to the login page without a mouse event taking place after certain cleanup procedures had taken place. To do this I needed to break out of a frameset which "cflocation" won't do.

    Anyway I appreciate your help!
