Still need frames help.....

Jim
OK....so I got a little off-topic last time.......

I still want to do a simple web page like MSDN Library
(http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp) with a couple of changes.

On my navigation I want to allow the user to select a couple of choices and
generate the URL for the main content page on the fly.

It seems that frames are the way to go, but I'd like to see a simple example
of frames using ASP.Net (1.1 or 2.0 is fine).

I have looked into Master Pages and just don't think that they are a valid
choice for this type of website, because some of the content pages are
off-site. Therefore I cannot place the needed headers in them for Master
page content provider pages.

Any help at all would be very much appreciated.

Jim,

AspNet and Frames is something that bites each other.

As chalenge we have made a website with an Iframe. However it needs a lot of
extras.

In ASPNET is for this now created the Masterpage/detail webpages.

I have seen that it works the same (easier to do) as a classic website with
frames.
(Especially the MasterPage is nice with its inbuild nice menu and more of
those things. You see it more and more on websites).

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...asterpages.asp

Have a look to it.

I hope this helps,

Cor

Thanks for your response, but (AFAIK) Master pages will not work for this
site.

To use master pages, I have to be able to add code like "<%@ page
language="C#" master="~/site.master" - compilewith="re gister.aspx.cs"
classname="ASP. register_aspx" %>" to the content pages.

As I may have mentioned, some of the pages that I need to display are not
created or hosted by me. Thus, I cannot use them as content in a master
page scenario.

And, as you have found out, using an iFrame is a pain in the butt.

I think that regular HTML frames are definitely the way to go, but, until
Microsoft gets Expressions to market, we have nothing like Dreamweaver (or
even FrontPage) in Visual Studio to make this task easy as it really is.

I suppose I could make a frames page in Dreamweaver (cleaner HTML than
FrontPage) and try and load the ASPX navigation page in the left frame.
This is probably what I will end up doing.

Microsoft! Please hurry up with Microsoft Expressions! I have been wishing
for that suite forEVER.

Hi there, I have implemented a login sequence using session variables for a PHP/MySQL DB which I took over development. I read some books and this NG and it seemed straight forward.

I developed a main web page where login takes place and if successful a session variable...

I know Jakob Neilsen and a bunch of other usability advocates and critics usually frown on usage frames. However, most people probably seem to have at least version 5 of IE or newer and I am toying with the idea of just using a small topframe in my site design. Do any of you have strong opinions either for or against frames? I personally don't mind sites with them if the borders are hidden and they are well-designed... Thanks,

I'm new to ASP.Net but been a programmer for decades. I'm doing a new App and am intending to use an Item Listing Frame alongside a Data Input Frame (I hate in-Grid editing).

Hi A while ago I discovered a way of creating css pseudo-frames, that offer users the important benefits of real frames (i.e. the navigation remains visible when you scroll down the page), but without most of the drawbacks (in particular, unlike real frames, this method is bookmarks-friendly and search engine-friendly). However, the method still has sufficient drawbacks from an accessibility point of view that I have been planning to...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
