Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating framesets and modifying attributes, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
So we have all of the HTML files imported now.…They're going to be the various topics that we are going to display in our…frames on our page here.…The next step is to actually create the frameset and determine what those frames…are going to look like.…So the first thing we need to do is go over to the left-hand side and click the…folder that we created earlier called ldc_test.…With that selected, we will create the frameset for this particular folder by…going to File, down to New, and selecting Frameset from the pop-up menu.…
Now from here, you're going to see a number of templates to choose from.…The first one is selected, you can tell by the blue border, it's two vertical…panes, there are horizontals, four quadrants et cetera.…This is going to work best for us, the very first one, so I will make sure it stays selected.…And now you'll see two fields down below;…one for the Frameset Title and one for the Frameset File Name.…Let's keep the same name as our project folder for the Frameset Title here.…

Q: When I insert the ActiveX Calendar control and try to hide the title by setting the ShowTitle property to false, the title is not removed and remains visible. Why is this happening?
A: There are many ActiveX controls available and many versions of a control may exist. Different versions of a control can behave differently. Certain properties may work in one version of a control and not in another. ActiveX controls can be installed on your computer by different programs other than RoboHelp, such as Microsoft Excel and Access. In this title, version 11.0 of the Calendar control is used. If you are using a different version of the Calendar control, the ShowTitle property may not work properly. Go to www.microsoft.com to learn more about ActiveX controls and their properties.
