Frames (HTML)

I would like to create a page that look like

http://img115.imageshack.us/img115/6212/16d62ad98fa90a92dcd316clh1.png

Where frame 1 can have something searched in it.. and then is searches it in 2

Also frame 2's URLs will be in the format

https://something.com/blah.ext?something=blah&words=TEST

And on change of frame 2 it looks for
&words=WHATEVER
and Changes the title of the "main" page.to WHATEVER - Something
(the last three lines only apply if frame 2 is on either of two domains, if not then default to a title "something".

I've tried with frames and iframes, but since I have used them for years I am not sure how.
I would also like a close top frame button, which will close the top frame.. and leave the bottom frame *asis*<--- important.

<frameset rows="100,*">
<frame name="searchbar" src="searchbar.html">
<frame name="resultFrame" src="about:blank">
</frameset>


searchbar:


<form target="resultFrame" action="http://www.google.com/search">
<select onChange="val=this.options[this.selectedindex].value;
this.form.action=val">
<option value="http://www.google.com/search">Default</option>
<option value="http://www.msn.com/search">MSN</option>
<input type="text" name="q" value="">
<input type="submit" value="search" style="background-color:orange">
</form>
<span style="float:right"><a href="#" onClick="document.forms[0].target='_top';document.forms[0].submit();
return false">remove frames</a></span>

You need a little more code if you need to change the name of the search field

Not sure you understood this part:

Also frame 2's URLs (src=) will be in the format

https://something.com/blah.ext?something=blah&words=TEST

And on change of frame 2 it looks for
&words=WHATEVER
and Changes the title of the "main" page.to WHATEVER - Something
(the last three lines only apply if frame 2 is on either of two domains, if not then default to a title "something".

The remove frame seems to be ok. I'll test tomorrow.

yes I understood, just forgot it when I coded...
And I did not understand what else you wanted the library to contain so I gave you a way to use it...

Ignoring the library dropdown (and your "either of two domains" which I do not understand - the domain of frame two will be what is in the action) for a moment:


<form target="resultFrame" action="https://something.com/blah.ext"
onSubmit="top.document.title=this.words.value">
<input type="hidden" name="something" value="blah">
<input type="text" name="words" value="">
<input type="submit" value="search" style="background-color:orange">
</form>
<span style="float:right"><a href="#" onClick="document.forms[0].target='_top';document.forms[0].submit();
return false">remove frames</a></span>

hm.. I meant something like:

Frame2.onchange = function {
Document.title = Frame2.src;
}

I'm sure none of the above is actually what it should be.

You cannot access the source of a frame with content not from the same domain as the script.

Also why would you want

https://something.com/blah.ext?something=blah&words=TEST

as a title?

If you really want that then change
onSubmit="top.document.title=this.words.value">

to

onSubmit="top.document.title=this.action+'?something='+escap(this.something.value)+
'&words='+escape(this.words.value)">
