Using frames

  • # April 7, 2011 at 10:37 am

    Hi all,

    I have an upcoming project where there will be a form to filter report results. I want the form to remain static as the different reports are selected.
    I thought one way to do this would be to keep the form in a separate frame from the reports. That way the users selections would remain static.

    My problem is if it’s right to use frames or are they seen as old hat?

    On the other hand is there a better way?

    I’m using HTML and PHP

    you’re definitely better off using jquery and ajax if you can.

    hmmm, In which case what would you say was the best way to store the form entries which will be radio buttons and a text box?
