Create and format a frames page

After you create a new frames page, you can add a "no frames" message for browsers which can't display frames. You can also change its layout by resizing, splitting or deleting frames.

  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Page.

  2. In the New dialog box, under Page, select Frames Pages.

  3. Select a template, and then click OK.

    The new frames page opens.

  4. For each frame, do one of the following:

    • To select a page that is already created, in the frame, click Set Initial Page, and then select the page you want to show.

    • To create a new page and set it as the initial page to show in that frame, in the frame, click New Page.

      Microsoft Expression Web creates a new page in the frame, and sets the new page as the initial page.

      When you save a frames page, the Save As dialog box automatically opens again and asks you to save the pages shown in the frames you just saved. This occurs for each page shown in the current frames page.

  1. In Design view, at the bottom of the document window, click No Frames.

  2. Modify the message to say what you want.

    In the message you can include pictures, tables, forms, or anything else that you can put on a web page.

  1. In Design view, right-click in the frame and then click Frame Properties.

  2. In the Frame Properties dialog box, in the Frame size area, adjust the Width (or Column width) and Height (or Row height) settings.

  3. Specify the frame size to be a fixed number of pixels, a percentage of the size of the browser window, or sized in values relative to other frames in the same row or column.

    When you resize a frame while editing a frames page, adjacent frames resize accordingly to fill the space.

  • In Design view, press and hold down CTRL and drag any frame border.

    Expression Web creates a new frame.

  1. In Design view, select the frame by clicking it.

  2. On the Format menu, point to Frames, and then click Split Frame.

  3. In the Split Frame dialog box, select Split into columns or Split into rows, and then click OK.

  1. In Design view, select the frame you want by clicking it.

  2. On the Format menu, point to Frames, and then click Delete Frame.

  1. In Design view, right-click in the frame, and then click Frame Properties.

  2. In the Frame Properties dialog box, in the Initial page box, type the URL of the initial page you want to show.

  1. In Design view, right-click in the frame, and then click Frame Properties.

  2. In the Frame Properties dialog box, in the Name box, type the new name for the frame.

    If you rename a frame, any existing hyperlinks anywhere in your site that point to the old frame name will no longer work. You must find each occurrence of the hyperlink in your site, edit the hyperlink, and change the Target frame box to the new frame name.
