Navigation pane

I've built an app which when launched displays a xPage with a list of world regions.  When one region link is clicked, a session variable is set, a display of docs related to that region are displayed by filtering a view control with this session variable.  The user can then read or edit one of the documents.  

 My users have requested I create a navigation pane so all the regions are available all the time.  I tried using a frameset but that doesn't work since I need to set a session variable first and not just launch a web page in another frame.  I was looking at contect.redirect but I don't see an option for a frame. 

Any suggestions?

thanks

Use the Layout Custom Control from the Extension Library

This provides the "frameset" experience that you are looking for plus lots of examples and sample code available.

Application Layout control

Hey Paul

Thanks for the tip.  I've looked into and it does look like it'll do the trick.
