Introducton to Web Design
- In real life, most uses of frames involve a combination of rows and
columns. Thus, you will want to be familiar with a more complex frame
structure design. Let's look at an example of a common design pattern
that can be seen in operation at
Selena Sol's Scripts Archive.
- In this example, you can see that there are three frames divided
into two columns. The column on the left is a viewer frame used for
reading web site information. The column on the right is divided into
two rows and is used for navigation. The top row is a clickable image
that points to the homepage. The bottom row is a table of contents
for the site.
- Here is the code:
<TITLE>Selena Sol's Public Domain CGI Script
Archive and Resource Library</TITLE>
<FRAMESET COLS = "141, *" BORDER = "0">
<FRAMESET ROWS = "97, *" BORDER = "0">
<FRAME SRC = "home.html" SCROLLING = "no">
<FRAME SRC = "toc.html" SCROLLING = "auto">
<FRAME NAME = "main"
SRC = "/Scripts_archive/index.cgi">
- Notice that we will follow design logic very similar to the tables
within tables idea. In this case, we will set a frame of rows within a
frame of columns.
