View Full Version : DHTML Window inside frame

1) Script Title:
DHTML Window widget

2) Script URL (on DD):

3) Describe problem:

I am using the popup window widget inside the table.html of this frameset structure:

<frameset rows="220px,*,50px">
<frame src="textframes.html" name="text" />
<frameset cols="220px,*">
<frame src="sidebar.html" name="sidebar" />
<frame src="table.html" name="table" />
<frame src="definitions.html" name="definitions" />

The popup works fine, but it pops up inside and is restricted to the "table" frame. Is it possible to make it popup over the frameset structure? Maybe a new window popup?

There is no way for the DHTML window to hover over the frame it's contained within unfortunately. People forget the window is just a simulation using DIV tags, and cannot venture outside the document it's in.

That's not quite true. You can have divs on top of a frameset, see here (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25009&highlight=molendijk).
