Hi,
Here is my issue. I have 3 frames in a page. A top one and beneath it two frames adjacent to each other vertically.
When ever I position my cursor in the bottom left frame, it has to be resized. I did code a mouseover event in the <Body> tag of the htm page in the left frame and resized it. Also, using the mouseout, resized it back to the original length whenever I go out of the frame. All works fine until I click a link in any one of the frames. After that, when ever I do a mouseover within the bottom left frame that needs to be resized, i can see the constant resizing (expanding and reducing the size) of that frame. looks like the mouseout code is also executed.
Does anyone know of other ways to achieve this?
Basically the bottm left frame is the table of contents which is initially presented with a smaller frame area. however to faciliate the user to see the links clearly, I planned to resize it whenevr the user moves his cursor to that frame.
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
