Hi,

How can I create a dynamic frameset whose content changes based on
user inputs?

Specifically, how do I toggle a frame within a frameset? How can I
allow a user to "close" or "dock" a frame by clicking on some button
and let the parent update its frameset layout?

What I've been trying to do is for the child frame to send a message
to the parent, noting that a "close" event is issued, and parent
updates the frameset html... however that's just not working out, as
in I cannot seem to modify *only* the frameset parts... the whole
parent page seems to lose out (so other variables within the parent
page are lost with the new frameset html).

How can I achieve a frameset that allows docking frames??

Thank you,
