Firefox and Chrome frame OnResize not working

Posted on 2012-03-26
Last Modified: 2012-03-28
I am trying to capture when a frame is resized.  This works perfect in IE but not at all in Firefox or Chrome.  Everything I have read says it should work, so I must be doing something wrong.  Can anyone please help?


<frameset cols="*,*" border=15>
  <frame id=frmFrame src="frame.html" onload="alert('load');">
  <frame id=frmFrame2 src="frame2.html" onresize="alert('resize');">

<body bgcolor=green>

<body bgcolor=red>

<frameset cols="*,*" border=15>
  <frame id=frmFrame src="..." onload="alert('load');">
  <frame id=frmFrame2 src="..." onload="var win = this.contentWindow?this.contentWindow:this;win.onresize=function(){parent.document.title = 'resized @'+new Date();}">

Open in new window

Thank you for the solution, I am giving you the points.

Can you explain though your code.  I think what is going on is that Firefox is not correctly registering the onresize event to the frame or using the wrong container?  Is this correct?
