Frames, HTML and Resizing Windows?
Dave, I have read your Creating Cool HTML 4 WebPages and gotten into basic web-designing. I have one pestering question though. Say you have two frames, is there any way you can prevent the frames resizing if you resize your window? For instance, a maximized window viewing these frames is fine, but when it is not maximized it may cut off some information and pop that annoying scrollbar next to it. It can, anyway, disrupt ease and fluidness of the site.
I haven't monkeyed around with a frames-based design for quite a while so I'll have to scrounge through my newer edition of the book, Creating Cool Web Sites with HTML, XHTML and CSS, to remind me of the details of the frame tags.
The basic frame layout is specified with frameset, and then each specific pane of the frame design is specified with a frame tag. A typical layout:
<frameset cols="30%,70%"> <frame src="leftside.html" /> <frame src="rightside.html" /> </frameset>
To lock in frame sizes, you need to change the parameters of the cols or rows. Try using a specific pixel size for one of the parameters and an asterisk (*) as the other parameter.
Something like this:
I think you'll find that does what you seek.
