1) Script Title: Chained Menu

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex16/chainedselects/index.htm
3) Describe problem: I hope this all makes since. I have setup the cahined menu and have it working, I am using 9 dropdowns. I have set the var hide_empty_list=true; and onclickaction="goto". so far everthing is working great.

Now my problem:
I want to have this in frames, menu in left frame and text in right frame. (not sure how to do that) I also what it so that when dropdown 1 shows up then the informaton in the right frame changes at the same time. So when a new dropdown shows up in the menu then a new page will show up in the right frame. hope this makes since. I am not sure how to do this.


Dropdown one
option - finish
hot red

When you see this dropdown then I want a new page to open in the right frame so that I can have images and other content there.

Here is how you can have the menu in one frame and have the results open in another..

Chanined menu in IFrames

first open
config.js and change

var newwindow=0 //Open links in new window? 1=yes, 0=no.

and Change to
var newwindow=1 //Open links in new window? 1=yes, 0=no.

Next Open chainedmenu.js


Replace with

You will need to change 'myiframe' to the frameset that you wish to have the page open in.

"I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code".

Hope this helps
