Hi Folks,

I have the following FrameSet, see code.

I need to get the name of the Frame Src "ab_03_01_0010.htm" of the Content Frame via Javascript as this would be dynamic.

like

var frameSrc = Content.location.href

final output should be

frameSrc = "ab_03_01_0010.htm"

<frameset rows="100%,*" frameborder="no" border="0" framespacing="no" onLoad="getBookmarkCD();" onbeforeunload="bookmarkit();">
 
<frame src="ab_03_01_0010.htm" name="Content" title="Main Content" SCROLLING="no" MARGINWIDTH="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0" FRAMEBORDER="no" BORDER="0" noresize>
 
<frame src="bottomnav01.htm" name="Navigation" title="Navigation" SCROLLING="no" MARGINWIDTH="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0" FRAMEBORDER="no" BORDER="0" noresize>
 
</frameset>

almost correct, it should've been:

var frameSrc = window.frames['Content'].location.href;

A simple greedy regexp will do the trick:

   var frameSrc = window.frames['Content'].location.href.replace(/.*\/(.*)$/, '$1'));

a little explanation: the regular expression will grab as much as possible and then backtracks to the last slash ("/") of the pathname (needed to be escaped as \/ in the regex). It captures the rest in (.*) as $1 and finally anchors it to the end of the string with "$" to make the sure the regex works as intended.

The replacement string replaces everything for what is inside the brackets.
