is have the buttons on my page load an external html page into ta cell in a table.

ultimately the goal it have the content on the page load on button press like a normal page but i donlt want the top flash animation to have to reload everytimea button is pressed

i have looked in to the ifram posibility but i do not know how to have a button load a new ifram with out refreshing the whole page
please advise

Give your buttons a target. The target should be the name of your iframe.

<a href="somepage.html" target="name-of-frame">Page 1</a>

<iframe src="someotherpage.html" name="name-of-iframe" scrolling="auto" width="#" height="#" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Just put the iframe where you want the stuff to load. Post your code. We aren't psychic you know. And in the future "Need Help Please" is NOT acceptable for a thread title. You probably read the forum rules before you make another thread. You already cross posted which is against the forum rules.

i just though i would get more information id i posed the wuestion in different areas

the thing is about the iframe
is that i get what to do but there are multipal buttons and therefore multipal iframes
i did not explain myself well

but i mean if i have say 4 pages of content i want loaded in the same place based on what button is pressed then how would i do that?
