Frames using popup()

Poster: brent __at__
Dated: Wednesday May 15 2002 - 6:10:22 BST

Hi, i would like to use frames and in the top frame i would like to have buttons using rollover graphics that use the popup() function instead of a menu as in the example.

i.e. <a href="#" target="main" onMouseOver="popup('menu1')" onMouseOut="popdn()"><img src=""></a>

Is there a way to do this so that the menu is opened in the bottom frame instead of the top frame? I tried:

onMouseOver="popup('menu1', 'target=main')"
onMouseOver="popup('menu1 targe=main')"

but neither worked. Any suggestions?

Hi Andy,

Thanks, your solution worked. I just put in:

However, i am now experiencing a problem in Netscape 4.78 where the menus sometimes disappear even when i'm hovering over them. Is this a common problem?

you can see what i've done at

Thanks again for your help,

I just want to say thanks, I was also having the problem of trying to have menus pop up in other frames using the popup command and now my page works great. The only thing is though, I am using a three frame set up and where one of my menus shoud drop down, there is a border between frames so I've had to move my submenu over considerably. Its not that bad but I am assuming there is no way to have the menu over lap frames, correct?
