Hi all.
I知 using the above script and think its great but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to get the link to load in my mainframe instead of the page it痴 in.

I have managed to get it to load in a new window but I知 stuck! I have not used java in abt 5 years so I知 way out of practice.:eek:

Please see the code below and note that it is in the menu frame of my site.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

<script type="text/javascript">

Where you have:


Car_Image_Sources=new Array(
"images/roll over/news.gif", "LINK:myPage.htm" ,
"images/roll over/promo.gif","http://www.javascriptkit.com",
"images/roll over/recipe.gif","", //this slide isn't linked
"images/roll over/Mike1.gif","http://www.codingforums.com" // NOTE No comma after last line
);

That won't do anything unless you have a page named LINK:myPage.htm, which I believe is an illegal filename. The space before the trailing comma might be a problem too.

Try:


Car_Image_Sources=new Array(
"images/roll over/news.gif", "myPage.htm",
"images/roll over/promo.gif","http://www.javascriptkit.com",
"images/roll over/recipe.gif","", //this slide isn't linked
"images/roll over/Mike1.gif","http://www.codingforums.com" // NOTE No comma after last line
);

To get it to open in your main frame, the main frame must have a name:


<frame name="mainframe" src="whatever.htm" . . .

Once you have that, you can change this part:


function C_LdLnk(){if(this.lnk)window.open(this.lnk)}

to:


function C_LdLnk(){if(this.lnk)window.open(this.lnk, 'mainframe')}

and Bob's your uncle. If you need more help:

Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic code so we can check it out.
