Hi guys, not sure if this should be posted under here, or Java Int or JSPs so I'll try all and see what comes back...
Basically I have an 'advanced' search option on my system which returns the results in a page with two iFrames in it. One will have a list of file types and the other the actual results.
The problem I am having is, I need to some how parse values directly into the first iFrame as the results page is loaded.
So you click on search -> loads results.jsp (which has 2 iFrames in it)
iFrame 1 (file types) immediately lists all available file types (gets this from the
click on a file type and iFrame 2 displays the results.
hope you understand.
Basically, how can i parse values directly into the iFrame's page from theServlet and vice vera?

Why don't you look into an Ajax double combo type of application?

Why do you need the iframes to being with? You haven't really explained what it is you are trying to accomplish, but it sounds as if you may be over-complicating things.
