    javascript select box and tables

    I have a web site consisting of two frames. A top frame named "top" and a bottom frame named "lower".

    I have the following javascript select box in the lower frame:
    PHP Code:
    <form>
    &
    nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<select class=textbox name=borrower onChange=update_table(this.options)>
    <
    option value="">Click To Go</option>

    <
    option value="">-----------</option>
    <
    option value="startloan.php" target="lower">Profile Info.</option>
    <
    option value="address.php" target="lower">Address Info</option>
    <
    option value="employer.php" target="lower">Employer Info.</option>
    <
    option value="income.php" target="lower">Income Info.</option>
    <
    option value="declarations.php" target="lower">Declarations</option>
    <
    option value="assets.php" target="lower">Asset Info</option>
    <
    option value="liabilities.php" target="lower">Liability Info.</option>
    <
    option value="mortgage.php" target="lower">Mortgage Info</option>
    </
    select></form
    I want the bottom frame to present the newly selected page. Instead the new page takes up the entire screen, which is devoid of frames.

    What do I need to do to make the newly selected page load in the "lower" frame.

    you are missing javascript code part from the snippets you posted above..in that (if thats in the frame) do this
    parent.frameName.location.href = url;

    I'm still a little confused

    Maybe I need to change the function which is a s followshere's the code for the function call:


    PHP Code:
    function update_frame(myoptions
    {
           
    destination myoptions[myoptions.selectedIndex].value;
           if (
    destination == "null")
           {
                   return 
    true;
           }
           
    window.open(destination'_top');
           
    myoptions.selectedIndex 0;
           return 
    true;

    So I tired to change destination to '_self' and to '_lower' and to 'lower'

    But I can't seem to figure it out

    I couldn't figure out where to place the code you gave to me. Could you be more specific. Or do I need to change the function

    Sorry, I'm sort of a javascript newbie.

    Thanks

    I figured out the answer

    the solution is to change

    PHP Code:
      window.open(destination'_top'); 
    into


    PHP Code:
      window.open(destination'_slef);
