I am working in RH7. In creating hyperlinks to various
topics, sites, etc., I have wondered how I might use the different
display options: Page Default (none), New Window, Same Frame,
Parent Frame, and Whole Page.
I get the use of the Page Default and New Window, but I am
unclear how the other options behave and how I might use them.
Mostly I am looking for an explanation of what the options do when
used. We are using WebHelp as our primary layout if that helps.
I have attempted to research these options but I haven't
found any real guidance on them. I hope someone in the community
can enlighten me. Thanks in advance from a relative newbie,
The other options would be used if you had created a Frameset
topic. A Frameset topic divides the browser (or frame) into
different areas. The basic frameset consists of the frameset HTML
page and two topic HTML pages. One topic appears inside one frame
of the frameset and the other appears inside the other frame.
So if you had a link in a topic that appeared inside one of
the frames of the frameset, you might employ one of the other
options to elicit certain behaviors.
* Same Frame displays the linked topic in the same frame you
* Parent Frame leaves the frame you are in and causes the
linked topic to consume the space the frameset formerly consumed
* Whole page causes the linked topic to leave framesets
entirely and display the content in the whole browser window.
