Lesson 10. Creating Frames > Opening an Existing Page in a Frame

Opening an Existing Page in a Frame

You've already started several content pages, so you need to make sure they fit in the content frame. You can open those files directly in the frame to check or edit them.

1.
In the locations.html document window, click inside the content frame.

This is the frame in which you want the about, local_history, and relocation pages to appear.

2.
Choose File > Open in Frame. Choose local_history.html from the dialog box.

The page is loaded into the content frame and is available for editing.

3.
Place the local_history.jpg image from the Lesson_10_Frames/Images folder on a new paragraph line between the first two paragraphs and center the image. Give the image a 1-pixel border and save the file.

Depending on the size of the text and of the window in which your frameset is displayed, the content on this page may require scrolling. With the frame properties set to auto scroll, the browser will use scroll bars only if they are needed.

4.
Open construction.html in the content frame. Place and center the construction.jpg image on a new paragraph line between the first two paragraphs. Give the image a 1-pixel border and save the file.

You might have noticed the Save All Frames command in the File menu. Exercise caution when using this command. It saves all open pages contained in your frames and the frameset. Remember that the frameset is the file you use when linking. The number of frames and the files that initially appear within each frame are defined in the frameset. If you choose File > Save All Frames while you are editing other pages within the frames (by using File > Open in Frame), you will redefine the frameset.

5.
Open relocation.html in the content frame. Place and center the relocation.jpg image on a new paragraph line between the first two paragraphs. Give the image a 1-pixel border and save the file.

Your page should now look like the example.
