  • Open in new window from menu in frame ?

    Hi,

    I am just looking at what can be done with frames.

    I have a Drop down menu w/ description - (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...bodescribe.htm) In a small frame in the top left of my page.

    How do I get the result of my menu selection to open in a new window ? I have made changes to the Default target Frame settings,"New Window" and "Whole Page" with no luck.

    I can make links open in a new window by adding target="_blank" to :

    <a target="_blank" href="../bench.htm">Video bench Marks</a>

    How do I get the same result with a menu ?

    Greatful for any help,
    -R-

    Try changing this:

    <input type="button" value="Go"
    onClick="location=document.a294.a969.options[document.a294.a969.selectedIndex].value">

    to this:

    <input type="button" value="Go"
    onClick="window.open(document.a294.a969.options[document.a294.a969.selectedIndex].value)">

    and to learn how to customise that new pop-up window check out this tutorial:

      Great ! Works like a charm ! Thank you very much !

      There is half my problem solved !

      I have a different kind of search in the top right. I can't see how to do the same thing with this one:

      <SCRIPT>
      <!-- hide this script from non-JavaScript browsers

      var MAX_ENGINES = 75;
      var SNARK_STRING = "hunting+the+snark";

      function MakeArray(n) {
      for (var i = 1; i <= n; i++) {
      this[i] = 0;
      }
      this.maxlen = n;
      this.len = 0;
      return this;
      }

      var engs = new MakeArray(MAX_ENGINES);

      function find_substring(needle, haystack) {
      var i, needlen = needle.length, haylen = haystack.length;
      for (i=0; i<=haylen-needlen; i++) {
      if (needle == haystack.substring(i,i+needlen))
      return i;
      }
      return false;
      }

      function Engine(name, opts, home, search) {
      var snark = find_substring(SNARK_STRING, search);
      this.name = name;
      this.opts = opts;
      this.home = home;
      this.pre_snark = search.substring(0,snark);
      this.post_snark= search.substring(snark+SNARK_STRING.length, search.length);
      }

      function Add(name, opts, home, search) {
      engs.len++;
      if (engs.len <= engs.maxlen) {
      engs[engs.len] = new Engine(name, opts, home, search)
      }
      else {
      alert("Better increase MAX_ENGINES: " + engs.len + ">" + engs.maxlen)
      }
      }


      // ADD YOUR OWN SEARCH ENGINES BELOW. (See http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~jab/snark/ )

      Add("Google", "",
      "http://www.google.com",
      "http://www.google.com/search?q=hunting+the+snark&btnG=Google+Search");

      Add("Alltheweb", "",
      "http://www.AllTheWeb.com",
      "http://www.alltheweb.com/search?cat=web&lang=english&query=hunting+the+snark");

      // ADD YOUR OWN SEARCH ENGINES ABOVE. (See http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~jab/snark/ )


      function HandleForm(form) {
      form.submit(); // This fixes a mysterious Netscape bug. Without this line,
      // you can't use <enter> to start the search the first time.
      var i, oldq=form.query.value, newq="";
      for (i=0; i<oldq.length; i++) { // compress [ ]+ into \+
      var thischar = oldq.charAt(i);
      if (thischar != ' ')
      newq += thischar;
      else if (lastchar != ' ')
      newq += '+';
      lastchar = thischar;
      }
      var eng = engs[1+form.service.selectedIndex];
      location.href = newq ? eng.pre_snark + newq + eng.post_snark : eng.home;
      }


      function DisplayForm() {
      document.writeln('<CENTER><FORM OnSubmit="HandleForm(this); return false">');
      document.writeln('<SELECT name="service">');
      for (i=1; i <= engs.len; i++) {
      document.writeln("<OPTION " + engs[i].opts + "> " + engs[i].name);
      }
      document.writeln('</SELECT> <INPUT size=20 name="query">');
      document.writeln('<input type=submit value=" Submit">');
      document.writeln('<input type=reset value=" Reset">');
      document.writeln('</FORM> </CENTER>');
      }


      DisplayForm();


      // done hiding from old browsers -->
      </SCRIPT> <!-- END JavaScript Search Code ---->

      Maybe something in this line ?

      }
      var eng = engs[1+form.service.selectedIndex];
      locaton.href = newq eng.pre_snark + newq + eng.post_snark : eng.home;
      }

      I don't know.....still learning. If you can fix this for me as well, I would be most greatful indeed !

        Weel just try it and see what happens, change this:

        location.href = newq ? eng.pre_snark + newq + eng.post_snark : eng.home;


        to this:

        window.open(newq ? eng.pre_snark + newq + eng.post_snark : eng.home);
