programmaticaly activate link

Hi,
I just wondered if there's any way to programmaticaly activate a link.
What I want to do is after pressing a button, change the content of one of the frames on my HTML page.
Then when that frame is loaded with the new HTML context, I want to automatically have another frame change it context...
Any idea how I could do this?

    You can use the onLoad() of the first frame for that. In the newly loaded fram place a function in its onLoad(), which updates the frame with the button.

    Could you please give a bit more details about the last part. I understand the onLoad() functionality, but I still don't know what the syntax is to change the content of a frame.
    Normally you have a hyperlink and there you define a target and href, but I don't know how to do this programmatically

    Here is a page from a great javascript tutorial, which explains the code you need: http://www.pageresource.com/jscript/jframe2.htm. It also includes a working example.
  • Yep, I got it and it works well.
    Thank you
