Displaying a frameset in a WEBDEV site
Warning
From version 18, the framesets are available for backward compatibility with the former sites. However, they are not supported in HTML 5 and they are not recommended for the referencing and/or for the navigation from mobile devices.
We advise you to replace the framesets by pages that share page templates and/or control templates.
Overview
Displaying a new frameset in a WEBDEV site can be performed according to several methods:
Displaying a frameset from the description of a control
When describing a button, a link or a clickable image, you have the ability to define the action performed and the destination of this action.
To open a frameset "xxx" from a button, a link, an image, ...:
  1. Display the element description ("Description" from the popup menu of the element)
  2. Select the action to perform: "Display the xxx page". This page must correspond to the frameset.
  3. Select the destination of the action: current page, current browser, ...
  4. Validate.
Displaying a frameset by programming (in WLanguage)
Several WLanguage functions can be used to open a frameset.
FramesetDisplayDisplays a WEBDEV frameset in the browser of Web user.
FramesetRefreshRefreshes a frameset displayed in the browser of the Web user from the context found on the server.
FramesetUseDisplays a WEBDEV frameset in the browser of Web user and closes all the current page and frameset contexts.
When opening the frameset, you have the ability to pass parameters:
  • to the frameset. All you have to do is specify these parameters in one of the functions for opening the frameset.
  • to one of the frameset pages. All you have to do is open the context of the relevant page and specify the parameters to pass (ContextOpen). This function must be used before opening the frameset.
Note: By default, when opening a page by programming, the selected destination is:
  • the destination defined in the description of the object that triggers the opening of the page (button, link, ...).
  • the target defined for the current page.
