    Default need to figure out page redirection; help!!

    I&#039;ve been stumbling over this for too long so I must be on the wrong track. <BR><BR>I&#039;m trying to create a search site using a framset. The left frame has the search parameters and the right frame has the results. The search frame has 4 connected drop down lists and a search button (this needs to be a button, not a hyperlink), while the results frame simply has the results in a grid. <BR><BR>I can think of only two ways to transfer execution of one web form to another. One is to set the target and action of the web form. The problem I had with that is on the search frame, when the first drop down list is selected, the second list is populated and so on. This means that I have postback enabled set to true for these controls and can&#039;t change the target or action of the web form or else this drop down list linking won&#039;t work.<BR><BR>The other way I thought of is to go to the onclick event of my button and use server.transfer or server.execute. However, this works but I cannot get the results to post to another frame. It will always use the same frame the search page was in. <BR><BR>That&#039;s about as far as I got and I&#039;m out of steam. Any advice?? <BR><BR>Thanks in advance!<BR><BR><BR><BR><BR><BR>

    To do redirection in frames you will have to build a custom clientside javascript function. response.redirect is serverside only.
