Can I set an outline button as the default so that it is highlighted when the outline loads?

The outline loads in one frame, a specific view loads in the other frame.

I wish to highlight the outline button that corresponds to the default view so that the user knows which button will return to that view

Not sure that there is a highlight option for these buttons, as they are usually actions.

You may be able to do something like change the color to make it stand out.

I hope this helps !

I can set the fore, moused, selected & background colours but can't see a way of forcing a button to be selected after load. Could it be done with javascript perhaps?

It's funny, but I have here an application that shows the first view as a highlighted action in the outline. I suppose that works only for a Frameset where you select a view that is one of the views mentioned in the outline. For the rest, there's nothing special about the outline or the entry. Try to display a view in the frameset.

that's what I'm doing.
I want to pre-select the ol button that will load the default view in the other frame.
The users can then relate the main view in the main frame to the button in the nav frame and so will know how to reload the default view.
And perhaps even realise that the other buttons will do other things such as load other views. (yes, the buttons are labeled...)
That app you're referring to looks like it's doing what I want.
Can u see the design?
Could it be someting to do with the root entry setting in the embedded outline of the page?
I'm guessing here. I've tried that and it didn't work.

Nope, not the root entry. And nothing special, as I said.

1 frameset, with 2 frames, in the left frame there's 1 page containing the outline, and there's 1 view loaded in the right frame.

That view's entry is selected in the outline, as if by magic...

Does not keep selection focus is activated, as is Do not display an image, for all entries. Whether that matter I don't know.

It works! At least it works for a view. It hadn't worked for me as I was in fact loading a page with a graphic and it doesn't seem to work for that. But at least I now now about views. Any ideas about being forcing selection of outline button that points at the default page?

Nope, sorry. I have a similar page (form actually), with a view in it, but it doesn't get picked up automagically.
