Could someone offer me help so that i could do the following in Notes client. this is clearly a notes app.

1. Create 2 frames in a frameset
2. left frame shows  view documents
3. right frame shows selected document from left frame (in edit mode)
4. on the right frame i want to have "next", "prev" action button. On clicking the button, the code should save the existing doc silently and navigate to next/prev doc. (Remember: silentyly means "no save prompt").  ---> I need help here

I will be willing to double the points if solution works.

First impression: forget it. The two frames don't know anything from one another, they lead their independent lifes. A button on the right cannot act on something at the left. There's one way that I see, but it may be a lot of work:
- create an outer frame, that will contain the frameset you designed
- the buttons will load a frameset in the outer frame
- some info must be saved in the environment, like:
    the view to be reloaded in the left frame,
    the id of current document,
so every time the whole display will have to be rebuilt. Ghastly...
1. Create a new frame and pick the layout you desire
2. The left hand frame should be a page with an embedded outline
3. The right hand frame should be given a name e.g. "content" and you should set the links' default target of the left frame to "content"
4. I'm not sure this is possible. You can certainly do next and previous using @navnext and @navprev But I don't think you can save silently AFAIK
Thanks for the points, was there something else you needed?  Why the B?  Thanks in advance for letting me know where I missed the answer.. !!
