Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Modifying frameset attributes, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
Anytime you decide you're going to use a frameset to display multiple topics on…one page inside separate frames, you can always go back and make changes to that…frameset, changing its attributes as needed, and that's what we are going to do…right now as we continue working with our How to Use LDC Forms project.…It doesn't really matter what topic you're looking at, we're going to go to the…Topic List pod and find our frameset, htm file.…You can see its ldc_test and when we double-click this, unlike double-clicking…a topic, it won't be displayed in our document pane, instead, double-clicking a…frameset displays the frame attributes, and these are the attributes we set up…initially when we first created the frameset, but like I said, we can change these at any time.…
With the left-hand side selected, we see the Width is at 50% representing 50% of…the full width available.…Also you can see that our initial screen under Name here we see is our start.htm…topic, which is what we see in the background, if you've been following along…

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.
