Html (Frames) Question

Wed Nov 10, 2004 3:43 am

All you HTML gurus out there, this one should be pretty simple.

Working with frames, there's a NORESIZE tag which, obviously, prevents readers from resizing the frame. I'm not using that tag, but the frame is non-resizable anyway, it just sits there at the predefined height. So, is there an "ALLOWRESIZE" tag or something similar? It seems like without NORESIZE it should be resizable, but it's just not...???

Thanks!

It could be easier to see what's wrong if you could copy-paste some of the code here.

Try the next however (make sure there's border available, otherwise there's nothing to resize the frame from!)

< FRAMESET COLS="150,*" BORDER="1" >
< FRAME SRC="side.htm" name="side" >
< FRAME SRC="main.htm" name="main" >

I guess I'm getting a bit confused with the BORDER, FRAMEBORDER tags. In the FRAMESET tag you can use BORDER and FRAMEBORDER, and I was under the impression that both were necessary so that Internet Explorer and Netscape could read it. But then, what's the purpose of putting them in the FRAME tag itself?

From HTML 4.01 Reference:

Frameborder: Specifies whether or not to display border around the frame

This can have values 0 and 1 (hidden or visible).

I suppose that BORDER is what you need to solve your issue. I also suggest you remove all the extra attributes. The only ones you'll actually need are COLS in FRAMESET tag for vertical frameset (border should be visible by a default) and SRC in the FRAME tags.

Hope this helps.  Smile

Hey, don't hit me, but - I'm (as you may have guessed) reading out of a book here, and it says that to get a framed page to link to an entirely new page - replacing your frames and all, the TARGET value should read "_TOP". It also says that "_WINDOW" opens your target in a new window. Unfortunately, they're both doing that. Is there a new HTML value in place of "_TOP" for replacing everything in the current window?

Thanks again... *sssigh*...

target = "_top" should replace the frameset not open a new window. To open a new window, the target is usually called "_blank" but any other name (as long it is not already used) oes it as well.
It's, however a good idea to stick to the terms, used by most developers.

It was a "case" of case-sensitivity. I was using "_TOP" rather than "_top". Gotat' watch that, I guess!

Now if I may be the first one to mention this, but shame on you for using frames!  Big grin They are the devil's work.
