    Post How to display div layer over the frames in a page

    Hi All,

    my web page does contain to 4 frames(top, left, right,bottom). in top frame i have a button . when i click on the button it renders a transparent layer(div layer/overlay) on the top frame. i want to show the overlay across the frames rather than displaying in the current frame.

    i have made use of only the frames not the iframes.

    please suggest me away for getting the overlay across the frames.

    Thanks & Regards,
    chanti.

    Hi there chanti,

    and warm welcome to these forums.

    what you ask for is definitely not possible.

    I would strongly suggest that you read some of the links that you find here...



    ...and have a serious rethink about your site layout.

    Hey coot, I agree that frames are bad and should not generally be used. However, to satisfy my own curiosity, couldn't this be done by using javascript and the "parent" keyword? (see here for an example of what I am referring to)

    Re: How to display div layer over the frames in a page

    Hi there JT,

    I have assumed that the OP was referring to a "Lightbox" type effect for a frameset.

    It may, of course, be possible to "click a button in the top frame" and change the src of
    the other frames with documents that have the "Lightbox" type effect initiated "onload".

    But surely if the OP wants to avail himself/herself of modern presentational methods it
    would be far better if he/she were to drop the out of date and user unfriendly frameset.
