Default Lesson 12

I'm having trouble implementing Lesson 12's Try It using IE 9 and Google Chrome using MS VWD Express and nothing came out. I didn't get an error thrown at me at page load.

Am I missing out something? I know that the frameset and frame tags are already depreciated.

Thanks

Howdy, mrubin78.

I apologize for my delay in getting back with you. I'm afraid I cannot help you without seeing your code. Can you please copy and paste the code for each of the files, or upload the files to a web server and provide the URL?

Default Resuming Lesson 12

The dust has finally settled in since October with lots of family happenings and holidays and now I'm back to resume my Javascript lesson.

Again I apologize as well.

Code:

        }
    </script>

I will move forward and start lesson 13 until I hear back from you with issues on Lesson 12.

Again my apologies and looking forward to hearing from you soon.

I forgot to add - right now I'm using VS 2010 Professional edition and using IE 8 (not 9) and Firefox 10.0.2. I won't be able to use Firefox because the Javascript have been disabled for security reasons which is beyond my control.

Apologies, mrubin78.

My spam filter caught the email alerting me to your reply. It looks like the issue is in the HTML for the frameset pages (main and top):

frameset_main:
HTML Code:
<body>
    <frameset rows="50%,*">
        <frame name="frmTop" src="frame_top.htm" />
        <frame name="frmBottom" src="frame_bottom.htm" />
    </frameset>
</body>
frame_top:
HTML Code:
<body>
    <frameset rows="50%,*">
        <frame name="frmA" src="frame_a.htm" />
        <frame name="frmB" src="frame_b.htm" />
    </frameset>
</body>
Remove the opening and closing body tags, and things should work for you.
