          DHTML effects (e.g. dropdown hotspot) do not appear to work within framesets. Is there a solution?

            Hi there

             

            I think we need more information to go on here. DHTML certainly *DOES* work in frames because it works in WebHelp and FlashHelp outputs. Those outputs are presented using frames.

             

            So we need more information in order to help. Which specific DHTML effect are you attempting to use? How are you seeing it fail?

             

            Cheers... Rick

              Hi Rick,

               

              I have used the new frameset function to create two frames: top one fixed, bottom one scrolling. I have put a topic into each frame. Each topic works fine standalone (that is the dropdown text and twisties function). When used in the frames, the dropdown is permanent dropped and there is no twistie. The text only popup works fine.

                OK, seems they work in a compiled system, just don't work in the preview window.
