Frames Again...
rustytulip - 9/29/2003 at 12:04 PM

Sorry, but I've seen a few posts about frame targeting, but it is still unclear. (I think the online builder and customising abilities are great btw!)

I used the online builder to create a menu, but I can't see a way how to include taget frames. I looked at example 5 in the documentation, but the code is completely different to the code generated by the online builder. My menu_items file looks like:

["Mechanical Repair Division", null,
["MRD", null,
["Who's Who", "http://ui-intranet/ead-intranet/oracle/mrd-tool/who-index.htm"],
["Promotions", "http://ui-intranet/ead-intranet/oracle/mrd-tool/promo-index.htm"],

and I've read posts that say just convert to the format:

['home', 'index.html',{'tw':'mainframe'}]

however this doesn't work.

Can you please tell me
a) do I use double or single quotes?
b) what alterations are needed in the menu.js file?

Many thanks,

Unfortunately Tigra Menu Builder generates Tigra Menu v1.0 that doesn't support frames targeting. Please download version 2.0 with this feature supported.

You should pay attention to parameters number in description of items that have subblocks - there should be three parameters but not two.

I am having the same problem as dark,

Nik, there are three parameters in my code as specified by your response but still the 'undefined' sub menu occurs??

What error message do you receive?

I have the following code for test purposes:

['Home','/intranet/sidenav/finance/authorities schedule.htm', {'tw':'_blank'}]

When I test my home page the button "Home" appears with a sub button with the title "undefined". When you click on "home" button it opens within the same window the correct document (I want it to open in a new window).
I cannot understand why a sub button appears when you can see from the code no sub button has been defined?

The code you've mentioned is used only in version 2.0. Please download Tigra Menu version 2.0 from our site ( )
