Assume having a page with 4 frames like left-up, right-up, left-down and right-down.
Each of these frames does contain different information and you can browse each for some time.
The question I am asking is this:
How do histories of frames get included into the containing frame's history ?
Thanks for any input.
Re: history object
Documents don't have a history object. If it works, it's probably in IE. Microsoft lets anything work. According to the documentation at http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/a...j_history.asp, only windows have history objects.
Oops, my fault ! You are totally right about documents having no history object.
Since windows however have my question is still valid. The 4 frame example consists of 5 windows, containing frame and the 4 single frames, or do I get that wrong as well ?
Now which history object does the back button of a browser use or should use ? Is there any specification on that matter ?
I did not see anything that explained how the history worked in frames. Since there is no public specification oon how it is supposed to work, you would have to peruse the particular browser's specification to find out how the back button is implemented. It may be connected to "physical" windows and not to individual frames. Since security restrictions prevent you from seeing the window history, there isn't much of a way to just dump it out to see what it contains. Some experimentation on your part could yield your answer.
Thanks for your input, it was highly appreciated.
;-( Sometimes public specifications are a good thing (really, they are).

Quite an undertaking.
I could not really implement a flawless navigation with either.
No, they just lack a good one.
So much for the rule:
"When all else fails, read the directions".
I know that as the "rtfm" rule:
read the f* manual. Often enough you want to say exactly that to a customer on the phone. ;-)
