P: n/a
Hi

The Menu doesn't work properly when I have 2 frame and the Menu popup
frame=document target frame, when I choose item in
the menu the doc opened and the menu get stuck.

Here is the code I'm using:

FrameSet -------------------------------------------------------
<html>
<head>
<title>Your Title</title>
</head>
<frameset rows="20%,*" framespacing='0' frameborder='1' border=0>
<frame frameborder='1' framespacing='0' src="1.html" noresize
scrolling='no' name="MyFrameOne"></frame>
<frame frameborder='1' framespacing='0' src="2.html"
name="MyFrameTwo"></frame>
</frameset>
</html>

1.html -------------------------------------------------------------------
<html>
<head>your header html</head>
<body bgcolor="blue">
Frame 1
<script type='text/javascript'>
//HV Menu- by Ger Versluis (http://www.burmees.nl/)

function Go(){return}</script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='exmplmenu_var.js'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='menu_com.js'></script>
</body>
</html>

<snip reposted code>

This is the third time you've posted a topic on this. Stop it. Did it
occur to you to contact the person that actually wrote the script in
the first place? They would be your best bet to get a solution.

You have a target myMenu, but I saw no such target div in the 2.html
code, where the script expected it to be.

Did you just leave that out for space, or did you forget to put it in
the real source?

1. Actually it's the second time I open a topic on this issue.
2. I opened a new topic because it is very urgent to me to get an
answer.
3. If I could have contact the person who wrote this I would have
already do that.
4. Forums - are usefully created so users can ask questions. and I don't
think you are the forum manager.

Thanks for you help...

I didn't add it to my code but I don't think it has any connection to my
problem
( I even tried it now to make sure it doesn't change anything )

Other than that, your code looks fine to me.
Did you trim out other javascript things you are doing? It may be that
things are butting up against each other somehow.

If you have a link to the site you are having problems with, it would be
very helpful.
Also, what browser are you using?

I beg to differ. I have three threads, originally posted by you, all
relating to the same script from DirectDrive, listed in my
newsreader.
2. I opened a new topic because it is very urgent to me to get
an answer.
If someone can suggest an answer, they'll answer you the first time.
3. If I could have contact the person who wrote this I would
have already do that.
Well, you can contact the original writer. The address of the
relevant part of the author's website is
http://www.burmees.nl/menu/menus.htm The home address has already
been posted by yourself. There are instructions for installing
various scripts and an e-mail address.

If you aren't trying to modify the basic functionality of the script
(only what it displays), you could have also e-mailed DirectDrive's
support.
4. Forums - are usefully created so users can ask questions. and
I don't think you are the forum manager.


That is true, but it's impolite to post a question more than once
just because you're impatient. That's basic Usenet (and social)
etiquette and it shouldn't require any form of administrator to tell
you that.

Hi

I have downloaded the latest version of the menu from
http://www.burmees.nl/menu/menus.htm
and now the menu get stuck only if menu should open a link that starts
with http://
For example :
Menu1_1=new Array("Example
1_1","javascript:parent.<FrameName2>.location.href =\"http://www.cnn.com\"","",0,20,100,"black","white","yellow ","blue","yellow","",-1,-1,-1,"","");

I am using version 9.50 of this nice menu. I have exactly the same
issue: the moment my links are pointing to external pages with
"http://..." the pages opens in the corresponding frame but the
navigation menu does not respond anymore.

Any idea?

PS: I asked Ger the programmer of this menu for a hint. I'll post his
answer if any.

If you have the menu body in the main frame, which becomes an external
page, the GO function is never called and the menu won't load.

Hi

The programmer of this menu told me that I will use an iframe in
Frame2 ( DocTargetFrame ) the iframe can load the external content and
the menu keeps working.

Have you tried this ?

I have not tried it because I had problems with iframes and netscape
4.77 a long time ago. I should now give it a try again with actual
browser versions.

By the way, I told you in my first contribution here that the menus
were not working. I was using IE 5.5 and Mozilla 1.4. This is not true
anymore with IE6 where the submenu are working fine with external
pages loaded in a new frameset (in fact, it is a link to an internal
page which has a frameset linked to an external page).

Please have a look to the menu here:
