    Iframe and target problem, please help urgent

    I have a JSP page and user clicks on a hyperlink, it goes to another JSP page.

    I am putting the first page URL in a iframe so that I can include it in a small region in the main page. when I put it in the main page and when I click the hyperlink of the first JSP page, it goes to the second JSP.

    The problem is when I am clicking the first page from the main home and it goes to the second page(JSP), the whole main page is scrolling down. I have a target in the second JSP page.

    How can I make the main page not to scroll down when I click the first JSP page?

    Any help is highly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    It's a intranet page so I cannot, sorry for that.

    It's something like this, When I click the first page, based on the information from the first page, the details are shown in the second page. It got a detailed description.

    I have put tje first page URl in a iframe and put that iframe in the home page in a small area. So When I click the first page, it goes to the second page, since the second page is detailed, the whole main page(home page) scrolls down based on the description. I want only the iframe part to be scrolled, all other areas should be intact when user clicks on the first page in the samll area of the home page.

    Please somebody help me with this.

    Thanks

    It is hard to understand what you are saying, but this might help. If you are only trying to change the information in the iframe and leave the rest of the page, then this is what you might want to try. Anywhere on the page you make a link like:

    <A name="DetailFrame" target="DetailFrame" href="detailspage.html">

    the href is the html page that you create that contains all the detailed information. This html file will load into the iframe you created.

    On the main page where you have the iframe you have to add an id and name to the iframe so the link can find it and load it into the iframe. It would look some thing like this:

    <iframe id="DetailsFrame" name="DetailsFrame" frameborder="0" src="Predetails.html"></iframe>

    the source (src) for the iframe would be the initial info you want loaded in. It is very important that the name you give the iframe is the same as the target in the link.

    If you want the iframe to scroll, then assign the iframe a size and if the info is longer than the assigned size then it will add a scroll bar by default. To add asize it would look like this:

    <iframe id="DetailsFrame" name="DetailsFrame" frameborder="0" src="Predetails.html" height="400" width="250"></iframe>

    Hope this makes sense. This was the only solution I could think of based on what I think your problem is.
