    Hi guys I have a problem(again)

    I have 3 .html files:

    1. creates 2 vertical frames
    2. creates 2 horizontal frames in the right frame of 1.
    3. creates 2 vertical frames in the bottom frame of 2.

    Now In the document of frame 2a I want to create a textbox and button where the user can type in a url and by pressing on the button the requested url will load in the frame. I tried this:

    </script>
    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
    function testResults (form) {
    var TestVar = form.textfield.value;
    parent.frame2B.Frame3B.src=TestVar;
    }
    </SCRIPT>

    and in the body:

    <form name="a" method="get" action="" Target="main">
    <input type="text" Value="http://www.yahoo.com" name="textfield" size=50>
    <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="go" onClick="testResults(this.form)" >
    </form>

    But this doesn't work. I tried everything I could think of, and looked everywhere, so If any of you could help me, I'd be much obliged. Thanks

    Well first of all your form isnt going to work the way you have it and id modify the script a bit too.

    Try this instead:

    <script language="JavaScript">
    function go(){
    URL = document.myForm.theURL.value;
    parent.framename.location=URL;
    }
    </script>

    Just change "framename" to the name of the frame you are trying to load this in.

    <form name="myForm">
    <input type="text" name="theURL" size="50">
    <input type="button" value="Go" onClick="go()">
    </form>


    That should work.
