I got a 3-frames page. 1 of them is the menu. When I click a link on the menu, I want the pages in both of the other two frames to change. I don't have a problem with changing the content of one of the frames but changing both the contents on clicking one link has got me stumped.

let's just say the names of the three frames are "menu", "frameTwo" and "frameThree".

try to make a function that goes something like:

function loadPages(p1,p2) {
parent.frameTwo.location.href = p1;
parent.frameThree.location.href = p2;
}

and on the menu item:
<a href="javascript:{loadPages('page1.html','page2.html');}">Link</a>

I'm not totally sure that it works but try it.

Almost right

code:
function loadPages(p1,p2) {
parent.frameTwo.location.href = p1;
parent.frameThree.location.href = p2;
}

needs to be changed to:

function loadPages(p1,p2) {
parent.frames["frameTwo"].location = p1;
parent.frames["frameThree"].location = p2;
}



And it should work.

could you that if you want to open up three pages with one link? like

function loadPages(p1,p2,p3)

etc.!?

I'd suspect that

function loadPages(p1,p2) {
parent.frames.frameTwo.location = p1;
parent.frames.frameThree.location = p2;
}

Would be an even better solution. =)
