I think the problem is coz of the css.
can u post that..
if u want the link to remain the way u want after user clicking the link u need a:link,a:active,a:visted,a:hover
some thing like this.
.class1 A:link {text-decoration:none;color:green;}
.class1 A:active {text-decoration:none;color:green;}
.class1 A:visited {text-decoration:none;color:green;}
.class1 A:hover { text-decoration:underline;color:#0000FF;background-color: #C0C0C0;color:#FFFFFF;}

Hello sunitha raghu,
You are getting my problem.When i click on the link,the color of the link is changed but it won't stay for long time.I mean when i click customer view link,at that moment the color of link is changed,when at the right frame when i click on add/update/delete buttons,the link color will be gone.Please read my first post for more details.

Ravi

Becomes normal--u mean hover-background color is not working???
I tested in two frames for me everything working well

The reason why is when you change the page, you change the object property and the link is not active any more in the frames eyes, even though it is. One solution is to have a little javascript tell the fram what style it should have when it is loaded.
