Hi,

a have frame set up as followed

header
--------
under

in frame under i open a new frame

nav | main

the link: frame_header_array.js and mmenu.js are in header(.shtml)

and frames_body_array.js and mmenu.js are in main(.shtml)

now the menu will not open, i think it's because i open a frame in a frame.

when i do everthing in 1 frameset it's working,

header
-----------
nav | main

but for the working of my page it's neccesasry that have a frame in a frame.

does any1 know how 2 solve this problem

(btw i change the name of the frame and even the target frame_header_blah die blah.js but nothing.........)

thanx

Hi,

I think you're mixing up things !
Just show us the html-code for the framesets you defined..

Example:
Take the sample from http://www.milonic.co.uk/menu/frames/frames.zip
and change index.html in demo to

<html><head><title>Frames Test</title></head>
<frameset rows="26,*" >
<frame name="menuframe" scrolling="no" target="main" src="frames_header.htm">
<frame name="main" src="bottom.htm" >
<noframes>
<p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>
</noframes> </frameset></html>

and add bottom.html as
<html><head><title>Frames Test</title></head>
<frameset cols="50,*" >
<frame name="left" scrolling="no" target="main" src="frames_side.htm">
<frame name="main" src="frames_body.htm" >
<noframes>
<p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>
</noframes> </frameset></html>

The milonic menu won't wok any more.
No matter how you change "sourceframe" in frames_side_array.js and frames_header_array.js the top menu won't work at all.
Probably, it's the limitation that Milonic implementation that it won't work in complex frame situation. It will only work in the primitive frame situation.

Any suggestion or solution?

The menu will still work if the frame can't be found.

At least the menu will display in original frame.
