Problem with Frames and ASP

By larry ·
I am working with ASP under IIS and have run into a problem using frames. I
have a fixed frame across the top, and another along the left side. There
are fixed titles in each of these frames. I want to display a specific page
view in the main frame, depending upon the combination of the top and side
choices that were made by the user.

The problem is that when the user clicks on a link in one of the frames (top
or side), I have to refresh all frames because the links in the two frames
not clicked would change. Thus, I do this, but the links for the frames not
clicked in always point to the previous combination of pages.thus, it always
lags behind one view.

Any ideas why this might be happening?

Thanks.

Is this the code you are using for the refresh?

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" OnLoad="open('http://196.28.49.83:5555/business_register/asp/bnraxesa07construction.asp', target='menUp');" background="../../assets/fdoTxt.gif">

Another problem may be inthe user's computer browser settings:

Check under Internet options if the refresh on every visit ti the page setting is on.

Another problem is when you are accessing the system from a proxy server. The proxy cache keeps being displayed and therefore the update is not being performed...

Hope this helps!

Larry,

Simply put at the top of your ASP pages
response.expires=0
This will ensure that a fresh page will be requested from the server each time.
give that a go.

If you want, you can make the main frame
cause the other frames to change by using
this script in an HTML page

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript">


parent.framename.location="http://mysite.com"

</SCRIPT>

this script will execute when your page is
rendered by the browser.

other things you can try are

parent.location=
// to change all of the parent frame

top.location=
// to change the entire wi
