    Question open page inside of frame

    Have a page that is loaded inside of a frame called rightside and after the user fills out a form I want to open a new page, but in that same frame... rightside. I am trying to do this at the end of my javascript that is checking the validation on the form.
    this is a sample of one of the many things that I have tried, but it won't call this page, just stays on the forms page.

    parent.rightside.location.href="requestafter.html"


    Thanks in advance

    since you are loading page in the same window that frame is,you should be able to use this
    window.location.href="requestafter.html"

    Man, this javascript is driving me crazy as it's so hard to debug.

    window.location.href="requestafter.html"

    using this line above still will not work. Just stays on the current page.

    sorry it's for school so it's not posted anywhere, but here is the code that I'm using.

    if (themessage == "You are required to complete the following fields: ") {
    var who = "davidb1969@cox-internet.com";
    var what = "Tourist Package";
    var thebody = document.info.first.value + " " + document.info.last.value + " " +
    document.info.address.value + " " + document.info.city.value + " " +
    document.info.state.value + " " + document.info.zip.value + " " + document.info.comments.value;
    parent.location.href='mailto:'+who+'?subject='+what+'&body='+thebody+'';
    window.location.href="requestafter.html"
    }
    else {
    alert(themessage);
    return false;
    }


    The last thing that happens is the email pops up with the data from the form and that's it.

    Thanks for your help
    David
