html question

Yeah yeah, it's not a true programming question but I figured you guys could help. Basically, I have a html page with two iframes (named "leftframe" and "rightframe" in it). How do I get a link in "leftframe" to open up a page in "rightframe"? If I simply do

<a href="blah.html" target="rightframe">link</a>

it doesn't work, presumably because "rightframe" is defined on the parent page.

Thanks in advance..

Re: html question

did you do something like this for the frame?

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>Frames</TITLE></HEAD>
<frameset cols="25%,75%">
<frame name="leftframe" src="leftside_index.html">
<frame name="rightframe" src="rightside_index.html">
</frameset>
</HTML>

your code you provided above should go in the "leftside_index.html" file.

Re: html question

or something like this might help, tho it's JS:

document.getElementsByName('myrightIframe')[0].src="http://url.org/file.html"

Re: html question

heh. i spend almost an hour sifting through some obscure perl program trying to find an issue. found the fix in a spanish web forum (I don't read much spanish..so that was fun too), and the fix eventually amounted to deleting 3 characters.

that is one character per 20 minutes! w00t
