Targeting Links in Framesets
By now we have a completed Frameset. Everything is adjusted the
way we want it and now is the time to start adding your content
and linking to it.
For the purpose of this tutorial I have added some content to each
of the .htm files we have created so far. Of course you will add
your own. I have added:
- Filler content in the "content.htm" that sits in
- Six various text links into the "navigation.htm" that
resides in the NavFrame.
- A simple logo into the "banner.htm" that sits inside
of the BannerFrame
No matter which form of navigation you decide to use (text links,
images, flash text or buttons) it's all the same when targeting
- Select the object you wish to provide the link
(we have used text)
- In the Property Inspector browse to your file or type in the
URL to this page in the Link field.
Once you have done this, the Target field will become active. Accessing
the dropdown will display a list of choices of where to open the
linked page. This is where you target which Frame should receive
this page. Take a look at the example below we have used for our
sample pages "News" link.
- _blank Opens link into a new browser window
- _parent Opens link into parent frameset of link
- _self Opens the page into the frame where the link is
- _top Opens link into the outermost frameset of the current document
