Default Pop Up Menu and Frames

Hey. I have a site that has an upper and lower frame. I have a pop up menu in the upper frame for navigation, ,but the links always get cut off when they go too low. Is there any way to have the links from one frame overlap onto a bottom frame, like an 'always on top' command or something???

Thanks
Rob

No, unfortunately you cannot do that. Each framed window is a self-contained window, not aware of the other. So, the menu will be cut off as if you only had one window.

If I were you, I'd try to drop frames. For most circumstances there are better alternatives for frames. IMO, frames are "old skool" and are generally not recommend in most situations, as they often create more problems than they solve.

Cheers,

Imar

You might use an iFrame or (my favorite) a table with a scrolling <div>.

I agree with Imar, frames really aren't the best anymore.

HTH,
