Calling a sub procedure from a different frame

Calling a sub procedure from a different frame

Calling a sub procedure from a different frame

I have two frames. In frame 1 I have a sub procedure that I would like to call from frame two. The sub procedure in frame 1 displays a form field value that exists in frame 2.

The sub procure is:

Sub dologin(txtLoginID)
Alert txtLoginID
End Sub


<FORM NAME=login>
Enter Your Login ID:
<INPUT TYPE=BUTTON NAME="DoLogin" VALUE="Next" onClick="doLogindocument.login.txtLoginID.value)">

Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Calling a sub procedure from a different frame

to call a sub from a different frame you just qualify the sub name with parent.framename. For example, if frame 1 was named Frame1 in the frameset, to call dologin from frame2, you would say
<script language="vbscript">
parent.frame1.dologin("some text")
