DropDown Menu targets ANOTHER frame - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

    Default DropDown Menu targets ANOTHER frame

    I need help with a drop down menu that can be targeted to another frame. For
    example, I want to have a dropdown in the upper frame of a framed page, and I
    want to target it at the lower frame. How do I create this sort of frameset?

    Default Re: DropDown Menu targets ANOTHER frame

    The same way you create any frameset. With the frameset open, when you
    specify your links in the drop-down, you would use the Property inspector to
    target the desired frame by name.

    But frames are good to avoid. The reason for using or not using frames
    should be based on a) your site's needs, and b) your willingness to accept
    the potential problems that frames can create for you as developer and
    maintainer of the site and for your visitors as casual users of the site.

    I am down on frames because I believe that they create many more problems
    than they solve.
    Judging from the posts here, and the kinds of problems that are described,
    the kind of person most likely to elect to use frames is also the kind of
    person most likely ill-prepared fo solve the ensuing problems when they
    arise. If you feel a) that you understand the problems and b) that you are
    prepared to handle them when they occur, and c) that you have a need to use
    frames, then by all means use them.

    As far as I know, the most comprehensive discussions of frames and their
    potential problems can be found on these two links -
