Doin' my head in... closeonclick & unsupported framecode

Hi all!

I'm having a "big" problem with the unsupported framecode where none of the functions I use to close the submenu on click works...

Let me explain my situation/setup:

site url: http://www.connections.be/nl/index_v7.shtml
- site is divided in frames (can't change that ) so i'm using the unsupported code posted here on the forum
- leftframe = mainmenu
- mainFrame = an (100%) Iframe which contains the contentpages (needed to let the menu work when there is a page in our frame which isn't hosted by us)


this is my main menu data file
this is my submenu data file which is implented in the iframe

I've tried everything.... closeonclick in the individual menu item properties, closeonclick in the submenu style properties, through a closefunction (Submenuclose) which gets activated with the 'clickfunction' or with the document.onclick in the iframe file

code for the iframe file:

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<style type="text/css">
<!--
iframe {
   border: 0px none #FFFFFF;
}
-->
</style>

</head>

<body><SCRIPT language="JavaScript" src="/scripts/v7_menu/milonic_src.js" type="text/javascript"></SCRIPT>   
<script   language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
if(ns4)_d.write("<scr"+"ipt language='JavaScript' src='\/scripts\/v7_menu\/mmenuns4.js'><\/scr"+"ipt>");      
  else _d.write("<scr"+"ipt language='JavaScript' src='\/scripts\/v7_menu\/mmenudom.js'><\/scr"+"ipt>");
</script><SCRIPT language="JavaScript" src="/scripts/v7_menu/menu_data_subs_nl.js" type="text/javascript"></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT language="JavaScript" src="/scripts/v7_menu/divhider.js" type="text/javascript">
</SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT language="javascript" type="text/Javascript">
// document.onClick = "parent.frames['mainIFrame'].popdown();"
</SCRIPT>   
<div id="div1" style="position:relative" align="right"><iframe src="navigation/main_v7_nl.shtml" name="mainFrame" width="592" marginwidth="0" height="100%" marginheight="0" scrolling="auto" frameborder="0" hspace="0" vspace="0" id="mainFrame">Your
browser does not support Iframes, please upgrade to view this site correctly</iframe></div>

</body>
</html>

Just a quick thought. Instead of calling popdown() in the frame containing your submenus, try calling closeAllMenus(). Worth a try...

I've never used frames and not good at java, so I'll throw out some observations incase anyone knows.

Assuming I'm looking at the correct menu on the left side.

I don't understand why you have 2 menu data files. Probably you shouldn't repeat styles for the same menu.

You have js or flash type change effect up against the menu, that is causing the submenus to act irrational, its not a good idea to place the 2 so close to each other. Some browsers can't handle it.

2 frames = 2 data files ... one for the main file and one for the subs

I'm not sure what you mean by this?

I think I see, so the submenus are not actually joined to the main menu, but are sitting on top of moving images, can you try moving or removing "Promotions of the week" because I think its causing problems with your submenu.
