    Frameset within Frameset?

    Hi All

    It's possible that this has already been either a) solved or b) condemned (!), but I've done a quick search and can't find anything on it.

    I have a frameset containing two frames. Bottom frame has a load more content at the top, so scrolls.

    What I want to do is make both frames scroll at the same time, (as top frame is a flash menu that I want to keep constant, without reloading it) so I figure I should build another frameset to house THIS frameset right?

    And in that frameset I want the frame containing the original frameset to be able to scroll the whole thing.

    Hope I explained that ok! Can anyone shed any light?

    Cheers

    Thanks for the quick reply mstwntd! If I set that though is it definitely possible for that 'master' frame containing the original frameset to scroll?

    It should be. I am completely against frames myself and don't have much experience with them, but give it a shot and see it it works out.

    You can, but should you...

    Yes, you can nest framesets inside frames in other framesets; in fact, it's a technique I used back in the "dark ages" to maintain a fixed header and have the menu and main frame be loaded at once with a single click (and no scripting).
    It works fine that way, but you could ask yourself if this really is a good idea...
    Regards,
    Ronald.
