using frames - HELP

by tylersmiller / April 12, 2008 11:21 AM PDT

I have a site where I have 3 frames: the header, links sidebar, and the main page. I also have a gradient spread out amongst the frames. If I change the screen res or the size of my browser window the frames go over each other and mess up the gradient. Is there a way to keep the frames in place for any res or window size. I am using Mircosoft Expression Web and am NOT an avid html coder.

Any assistance is great!!

you can define the width/height.

<frameset framespacing="0" border="0" frameborder="0" rows="115,76,62%,40">

This is an example of a frame page with just horizontal frames and the numbers are in pixel in order of frame appearance.

Here you can learn more about giving them a certain width.

Also, unless you put all your frames in a frame, there has to be something that expands and contracts. As you can see in the first example, one of the frames is a percentage whereas the others are fixed pixels.

Thanks for the advice, but just before I checked back, I redid the layout and made the page but put 3 inline frames on the page. So now the background stays constant and I just had to change the frame background a little.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
