I am in the process of creating my first site. It is done in a frameset. There are three frames. I have the navigation frame, a main frame and a third frame. The third frame is mainly for pics and stuff. What I am trying to do is have a blank page load into the third frame ( I have the blank page made) whenever a new page loads into the main page. Is there a way to do this? I have tried with the onLoad and some javascipt in the documents for the main window, but I do not know if I can reference the target third window for the blank document to load into. Can anybody help?
k, here is my situation.
I have the nested frameset setup like so:
There is a frameset setup horizontally.
There are two horizontal frames.
The top one is used for the navigation bar (NAVIGATION).
The bottom one has a nested frameset in it.
This frameset is setup vertically.
I have a vertical frame that takes up 300px on the left (LEFT).
The rest is taken up by the second vertical frame (RIGHT).
Now, when a user clicks on a link in the navigation bar, the page pops up in the RIGHT frame. However, the LEFT frame does not change.
What I want to happen is:
when a user clicks on a link in the navigation bar (in the NAVIGATION frame), the page they want will load in the main frame (the RIGHT frame), but also, anything in the secondary frame (the LEFT frame) should be cleared by having a blank html document load into it.
This would show a hyperlink that, when clicked, displayed "blank.html" in the left frame and "page1.html" in the right frame. You might have to experiment with "top.navigation", as it might be "parent.navigation" or similar, I'm not sure.
