I'm trying to execute a string that will load a page and execute a script local to that page from a menu item in a frame.
The first part of the code works i.e. it loads the page no problem but I cannot get the function to execute when the page loads.
The code I am using is:-
javascript:parent.mainFrame.location.href='./america_ss.html';javascript:pa rent.mainFrame.setslide(3)

I am worried that the reason the function is not executing is because the .js file hasn't loaded in time before the function is executed.

The page can be seen that I am trying to interface at http://www.geocities.com/sarsonuk/travel.html and select america/sugarloaf

Can anyone help
Thanks in advance
Pete

You could pass the name of the function to call as a parameter to the page you intend to load and then have logic in the body's onload()-method to execute that function.

The general solution would eb something like this.
javascript:parent.mainFrame.location.href='./america_ss.html?setslide(3)'

and in america_ss.html
<body onload="eval(location.search.substr(1))">

Please note that the code above is just an outline. I didn't mind adding error handling or anything else.
