iFrame Questions using The Menu
redzex - 8/3/2006 at 02:49 AM

Hello Masters, (",)

I have a main Page frmMain.aspx that contains 2 Frames. iFrame1 and iFrame2 respectively.

iFrame1 has a fixed source frmPagerID.aspx

iFrame2 is dynamic. which means changes it source

The Menu triggers the iFrame2 content to change using

(Note frameContent is the iFrame2)

var MENU_ITEMS =
[
['Projects', null, null,
['Add New Project', 'frmAddProjects.aspx', {'tw' : 'frameContent'}],
['Edit Projects', 'frmEditProjects.aspx', {'tw' : 'frameContent'}],
['View Projects', 'frmViewProjects.aspx', {'tw' : 'frameContent'}],
['Delete Projects', 'frmDelProjects.aspx', {'tw' : 'frameContent'}]

],
['Team Members', null, null,
['Add New Team Member', 'frmAddTeamMember.aspx', {'tw' : 'frameContent'}],
['Remove Team Members', 'frmEditTeamMembers.aspx', {'tw' : 'frameContent'}],
['View Team Members', 'frmViewTeamMember.aspx', {'tw' : 'frameContent'}]
],
['Log Off', 'frmLogOff.aspx', null]
];


now i want iFrame1 to reload when iFrame2 changes source because i pass a value on a session variable using the sub pages that loads on iFrame2.

the frmPagerID.aspx(iFrame1 Source) needs that session variable to modify a label1.text value in it.

how will i do that? (",) using the tigra menu.. can i do it?

thanks in advance masters.. (",)

well, you have the MENU_ITEMS which is the same. Just copy the described function and paste it at the end of the items file editing the frame names. Example with the frame names you mentioned it will be:

Code:

function rl (url1, url2) {
if (url1) parent.frames['iFrame1'].location = url1;
if (url2) parent.frames['iFrame2'].location = url2;
}


then call this function when needed providing the urls for both frames. Example:

Code:

['Projects', null, null,
['Add New Project',"javascript:rl('index.html', 'about.html')", {'tw' : '_self'}],


above code will load 'index.html' into iFrame1 and 'about.html' into iFrame2
