Hi, I wanted to know how to parse variables from a frame to another without using javascript(is it possible?)
Thanks in advance!

You mean like by using query strings?

a target=otherframe href=page.php?variable=info

And on the page.php you just read/print/manage $variable

Right?

Can't say I've ever done it, as I try not to use frames, but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work.

I did it once with an in-house interface to a MySQL DB. (Marketing director needed something more user-friendly than a command line for updating the database our website was generated from.) It worked suprisingly well for something with frames in it. And the method celerityfm suggested "Worked For Me".

As long as you are sending query strings to the frames it will work just fine!

e.g. href="page1.php?var=whatever" target="frame name"
