    HTA and frames

    I've downloaded the DynamicDrives Outlook Bar II (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...bar2/index.htm), and it looks great. However, I want to use it as an .HTA instead of a .html file.

    If I change the extension of the "index.html" to "index.hta", and open it, the url links refuse to work - instead it errors saying that "main" frame is not found or non-existent.

    I understand that you need to make the frame secure by putting in the attribute "Application=yes", but still no difference.

    How can I get around this?

    thanks

    Did you change the name of the frame "main"?

    I dowloaded the script and renamed index.html to index.hta and put application=yes in the two frames and it worked.

    *DOH!*

    Stupid me - I only put it in the frame that was changing (main), totally forgetting about the other one (outlook).

    ...and everybody thought the dodo was extinct....
