Hi,
I have two frames (left, right). I want to show progress bar popup in the right frame, when I click a link in the left frame. Currently progress bar pop up is appearing in the left frame.
How do I target it to the right frame?

Thanks,
index.html

<html>

<head>

<title>Progress Bar </title>

</head>

          <frameset cols="15%,85%" frameborder='1'>

               <frame src="./leftFrame.html" name='listArea'>

               <frame src="./hello.htm" name='contentArea'>

          </frameset>

</html>

Without changing the script, I could do this.
I think you might want something else
index.html:

<html>

<head>

<title>Progress Bar </title>

</head>

          <frameset cols="15%,85%" frameborder='1'>

               <frame src="./leftFrame.html" name='listArea'>

               <frame src="./content.html" name='contentArea'>

          </frameset>

</html>
 

leftframe.html
 

<html>

 

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">

 

// This code controls Progress bar behaviour

 

 window.onload = setupFunc;

 

 function setupFunc() {

   document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].onclick = clickFunc;

 }

 

 

 function clickFunc(eventData) {

   var clickedElement = (window.event) ? event.srcElement : eventData.target;

   if (clickedElement.tagName.toUpperCase() == 'BUTTON' || clickedElement.tagName.toUpperCase() == 'A' || clickedElement.parentNode.tagName.toUpperCase() == 'A'

     || (clickedElement.tagName.toUpperCase() == 'INPUT' && (clickedElement.type.toUpperCase() == 'BUTTON' || clickedElement.type.toUpperCase() == 'SUBMIT'))) {

     top.contentArea.CallJS('Demo()');

   }

 }

 

</script>

 

 

 

<body>

 

<ul>

        <li><a href="hello.html" target="contentAreaIframe">Print &quot;Hello&quot; </a></li>

        <li><a href="hi.html" target="contentAreaIframe">Print &quot;Hi&quot; </a></li>

Hi mplungjan:

Thanks for your response.
I am still having some difficulty in showing the content in the right frame:

1. In IE browser content of the frame is cutting from the top and the progress bar is also cutting from the top. (Please se attached screen shots)

2. In Firefox, a frame with 100% width and ~20% height is appearing with the frame border.
I want frame with 100% height and without the border. (Please see attached screen shot)
I have Iframe defined with 100% height.
<iframe style="width:100%; height:100%" name="contentAreaIframe"></iframe>

Could you please see what is wrong in it?
 
Thanks.
