I am re-doing my on-line portfolio. I decided to use frames. I have a top frame - menu; and two frames below it that are next to each other.

Now my question is...how can i have two frames change with one click. For example...when you press the logo it goes back to what it looked like when you first entered or when you press one of the types of photography on the right frame the list of the photos appears and in the left frame a blank box( where the photos will be)

I am using Dreamweaver MX and am fairly new to frames and webdesign. Simple explanation will be great for me.

Thanks in advance,

iggie

not the help you were looking for ^^^^^

lets see if we can get you pointed in the right direction...

i think the answer to your question is best answered with JavaScript...

an OnClick() event will handle both of your examples above

Unless you actually WANT to be picked up by search engines. :lol: But hey, who needs search engine visibility?! 8)

After I posted this question, I found the answer on Macromedia's website. They suggested using behaviors so that was easier for me than typing Javascript. Thanks for your ideas though,

Actually, that's the best advice anybody has ever given me on web design. He will thank me for saying that later in his development as a webmaster.

Ok iggie

i think i have the solution

in your link use the javascript event onClick,

first you must be conscientious about how you created the frames and the orter that they are witen in your frameset, you know the frame is like an array that begins with 0, 1, 2, ...

so only write the number of the frame that you like to change like this

onClick="parent.frames[1].location='new_menu.html'
onClick="parent.frames[2].location='new_content.html'



hope this can help you :D[/b]
