I have a frameset with a top, left, and right frame. There is a form in the right frame. I want two buttons. "yes" button should display a html page in right frame. "no" button should change to a new frameset with only left and right frames(with different relative widths than this frameset), and different content. At first I thought I needed to call another servlet but I dont, so this is what I have so far.

I hope that displays properly.
Perhaps I dont need a form at all?
I would also like suggestions on implementing the quiz. I am thinking of using an applet(make the client do part of the work), but I could use JSP or SSI(or a servlet like I first concidered). I am also thinking about using JDBC and hold the questions in a database. But I think an applet holding all questions and answers is better.
PS: this chunk of code is the only thing holding me up from compiling and installing new servlets.
OK I think I figured it out:

but what about the action of the form? I dont need it. Is it optional?

OK I tried it. I am having problems with the javascript.
This line gives a script error: 'Frameset' undefined.
"<input type='button' value='Sure, why not!' onClick=\"Frameset.frames[1].location='http://javaguy.yi.org/examples/Quiz.html'\">" +

and on this line I need the parent of the parent.
"<p><input type='button' value='No, I have enough gold.' onClick=\"parent.location.replace('http://javaguy.yi.org/examples/MagicItems.html')\"></form>" +
here are my framesets:

Should I nest the framesets instead?

I think that the frames array lives in the current window. You should be able to reference it directly like this:

Thanks, I got it. I ended up nesting the framesets.
I hate javascript!
Sometimes it is whats needed though.
 
For my next feat, I will require a volunteer from the audience! Perhaps this tiny ad?
