Chapter 14. Modifying Pages in Frames > Changing Frame Targets

Changing Frame Targets

Normally, when you click a link, it does one of two things: Either the linked page opens up in the same browser window (the default behavior), or it opens in a new browser window. Frame-based pages add a third alternative: Select a link in one frame and the page can open in another part of the frameset. The frame in which the page opens is called the target. In Contribute, the target frame is set when making or modifying a link.

Each frame in a frameset has a unique name designated by the frameset designer—and these names are used when setting a target frame. Often, but not always, the names reflect either the position of the frame in the frameset or the frame's purpose. For example, one frameset might be composed of three frames: topFrame, menuFrame, and mainFrame. The frame names automatically appear in Contribute's target frame list when a link is assigned.
