GreetingsI've been fussing and researching this all night. What is the syntax for including a variable (sFrameName) in the following:

 var oDiv = top.+sFrameName+.getElementById('divXX');

Thanks

Without knowing what sFrameName is in Your case, I think:
var oDiv = top.sFrameName.document.getElementById('divXX');

but can't be sure without seeing more code. if sFrameName is parent window try:

var oDiv = window.opener.document.getElementById('divXX');

Anyway, it must allways be document.getElementById

var oDiv = top.var oDiv = window.opener.document.getElementById('divXX');

Sorry, "sFrameName" is the name of a frame in the frameset. I'm trying to access the a <div> element across frames. I tried your first example: top.sFrameName.document.getElementById('divXX') - but I get the error: "sFrameName has no properties"Any other ideas?Thanks

please post ALL your code or provide a link so we can see how your frames are setup.I am thinking you will need to do something like this.

parent.document.frames['framename'].document.getElementById('divid')

The frame must contain name= as well as id= for this to work. if you did this

parent.document.getElementById('frameid').document.getElementById('divid')

You would get an error (not usre why, in IE anyways)

Thanks again,Here's my main.htm framesets:
<frameset framespacing="0" border="0" frameborder="0" rows="75,*,25">    <frame id="frmHeader" name="frmHeader" scrolling="no" noresize target="main" src="SupportPages/header.htm" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">    <frameset cols="200,*">        <frame id="frmToc" name="frmToc" src="SupportPages/toc.htm" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="auto" target="_self">        <frameset rows="101,*,10">            <frame id="frmTopicHeader" name="frmTopicHeader" src="SupportPages/login_header.htm" scrolling="yes" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" target="_self">            <frame id="frmTopicMain" name="frmTopicMain" src="SupportPages/login_main.htm" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="yes" target="_self">            <frame id="frmComment" name="frmComment" src="SupportPages/comments.htm" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" target="_self">        </frameset>    </frameset>        <frame id="frmFooter" name="frmFooter" src="SupportPages/footer.htm" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" noresize target="_self">    <noframes>    <body>        <p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>    </body>    </noframes></frameset>

Here's my JS code:

function togPanel(sFrame,sDivID) {if (sFrame != "none") {//var oDiv = parent.document.getElementById(sFrame).document.getElementById(sDivID);var oDiv = parent.document.frames[sFrame].document.getElementById(sDivID);} else {var oDiv = document.getElementById(sDivID);}oDiv.style.display = (oDiv.style.display == "none") ? "block" : "none";}

here's my html code which calls the above function:

<span onclick="togPanel('frmToc','divToc');" style="cursor: pointer">TOC<span>

I still get error: "Error: parent.document.frames has no properties" in both IE and FF. Any ideas?thanks again.

is the js code and the html call code in the main.htm page aswell??? If not what page are they on....this is very important to make it work.

No, the frameset are in main.htm and ths JS function togPanel() is defined in another htm file which is subsequently loaded into one on the frames.Does this help clerify things?TY

I need you to post ALL the code for ALL the pages in the frameset includeing the frameset page. This is everything between and includeing <html>...</html>.Bits and pieces are not much good, we need everything to know how it works together.Where the javascript is makes a big difference in the way it is written.

Thanks all - I got it to work with:

function togPanel(sFrame,sDivID) {	if (sFrame != "") {		var oDiv = window.parent.frames[sFrame].document.getElementById(sDivID);	} else {		var oDiv = document.getElementById(sDivID);	}	oDiv.style.display = (oDiv.style.display == "none") ? "block" : "none";}

"sFrame" var can either be the frame's index number or the 'name' or 'id' property in the <frame> element. This navigates across frames to toggle a <div> element on/off Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
