Use the Frame builder to specify the content of an HTML frame.
You can use the Frame builder whenever you need to display two or more separate HTML pages simultaneously within the same browser window. A common example is a "table of contents" or "navigation" frame located at the top or left of the browser window and a content or text frame to its right. This table of contents frame typically contains buttons or links, which when clicked update the contents of the other frame.
The Frame builder produces at run time the FRAME
tag with its source attribute (src) given the appropriate value (for example, frame name="top" src='< =webAppAccess.getActionURL("TopPage")>' /frame
, where TopPage
is the builder call name of the page to be imported). When the page is displayed, the frame referenced by this tag will display the page from the given source.
If you are creating WebSphere® Portlet Factory widgets for Lotus® Mashups, do not use the Frame builder. A widget is hosted in an iFrame in Lotus Mashups. The widget may run perfectly from WebSphere Portlet Factory Designer but when it is published to Lotus Mashups, it fails and an empty screen is displayed.
