Hi seesoe.

There is more than one to achieve this. the following is one way to do this.

1- create a function in JavaScritp.

function populateFrame( id, contents)
// note id, represents the iframe's id.
// note contents, repsents the new contents.
var my_iframe = window.document.getElementById( id );
my_iframe.src = contents;

2- create another function with the timer, and have it call the first function.

function timer_func( time_in_sec )
setTimeout( "populateFrame('id_value', 'contents_value' )", time_in_sec );

good luck.

hhhmmm for some reason im still haveing trouble getting this.
would it be possible if you can make a small html, that will do the following; then i will look at code and modify after i see how its supose to be.

cuz this is an example, can you make a simple page with 4 iframes
the iframe links can be anything, like

then on of page there could be 4 hyperlinks
google *to google page*
msn *to msn page*
yahoo *to yahoo page*
ask *to ask page*

so now the page is setup,
the buttons will use javascript to auto click on one of the 4 links and then load the result in one of the iframes

sorry if i seem damanding but i couldn't figure it out
