Frame and frameset functions handle two tasks: getting the names of the frames in a frameset and splitting a frame in two.

dom.getFrameNames()

Availability

Dreamweaver 3.

Description

Gets a list of all the named frames in the frameset.

Arguments

None.

Returns

An array of strings where each string is the name of a frame in the current frameset. Any unnamed frames are skipped. If none of the frames in the frameset is named, an empty array returns.

Example

For a document that contains four frames (two of which are named), a call to the dom.getFrameNames() function might return an array that contains the following strings:

  • "navframe"

  • "main_content"

dom.isDocumentInFrame()

Availability

Dreamweaver 4.

Description

Identifies whether the current document is being viewed inside a frameset.

Arguments

None.

Returns

A Boolean value: true if the document is in a frameset; false otherwise.

dom.saveAllFrames()

Availability

Description

If the specified document is not in a frameset, this function saves the document. This function opens the Save Asdialog box for any documents that have not been previously saved.

Arguments

None.

Returns

Nothing.
