View Full Version : Javascript Menu - Opening new page over frames page

01-05-2004, 10:21 AM

I currently have a home page made up of two frames (horizontal menu (top), content (bottom) )

My goal is to click on my 'Training & Development' button and the frames will be replaced with the Training page only instead of showing in the content frame with the menu frame still there.

I do not know the code to write in the .js document in order to make this happen, I would be most appreciative if anyone can help?!?

The following is an excert from the .js document i think i need to add the relevant code into:

Menu6=new Array("Training & Development","Training Home Frame.htm","",1,45,100);

You must post the whole menu script.
Hint, if the menu is a hyperlink, the output should be:

<a href="training.htm" target="nameOfFrame">Training</a>

Thanks for the reply, but the menu is in js not html. The following is the relevant HV script if it helps (sourced from dynamicdrive.com)... Any ideas what i'm missing ??

var NoOffFirstLineMenus=2; // Number of first level items
var LowBgColor='#800000'; // Background color when mouse is not over
var LowSubBgColor='#993333'; // Background color when mouse is not over on subs
var HighBgColor='#800000'; // Background color when mouse is over
var HighSubBgColor='#800000'; // Background color when mouse is over on subs
var FontLowColor='white'; // Font color when mouse is not over
var FontSubLowColor='white'; // Font color subs when mouse is not over

var StartTop=0; // Menu offset x coordinate

var VerCorrect=0; // Multiple frames y correction

var MenuFramesVertical=0; // Frames in cols or rows 1 or 0
var DissapearDelay=1000; // delay before menu folds in

var FirstLineFrame='MyFrameOne'; // Frame where first level appears

function BeforeStart(){return}
function AfterBuild(){return}
function BeforeFirstOpen(){return}
function AfterCloseAll(){return}

// Menu tree
// MenuX=new Array(Text to show, Link, background image (optional), number of sub elements, height, width);
// For rollover images set "Text to show" to: "rollover:Image1.jpg:Image2.jpg"

Menu1=new Array("Training & Development","Training Home Frame.htm","",1,40,100);

Menu2=new Array("Example","Example.htm","",1,40,100);

I'm getting there, managed to find some code that sort of does what i'm, after but i want it to open the whole page in that browser not open another...

Menu6=new Array("Training & Development","javascript: window.open('file:///w:/TRAINnet/Frames/Home Frame.htm')","",1,45,100)

Need the language to replace 'open'

As you can see my js knowledge is pitiful. Thanks in advance !!

Menu6=new Array("Training & Development","javascript:void window.open('training.htm','nameOfTargetFrame')","",1,45,100);


Menu6=new Array("Training & Development","javascript:top.frames['nameOfTargetFrame'].location.href='training.htm'","",1,45,100);
