    I have an ASP site that has a frameset below. I am in the process of
    redesigning/coding in ASP.NET. What are my alternatives to framesets. The
    execute frame does most of the processing. This is a very data intensive
    site.

    <frameset id="FrameCols" cols = "137,*" border=0>
    <frameset rows="100,*">
    <frame name="logoFrame" src="logo.asp" scrolling="no">
    <frame name="leftFrame" src="ThemeMenu.asp" scrolling="no">
    </frameset>

    <frameset id=fsRight rows = "51,*,50">
    <frame name="topFrame" src="ThemeTop.asp" scrolling="no" >
    <frame name="content" src="home.asp" scrolling="auto" >
    <frame name="execute" src="blank.htm" scrolling="yes">
    </frameset>
    </frameset>

  2. If the idea behind using frames is to not repeat the same elements on every
    page (menus, et al), you can set up a tabled page and put common elements
    into either user controls or server controls. With Whidbey (VS.NET 2005),
    you also have the option of Master Pages.

  4. A user control dropped onto the page (kind of like include files in .asp)
    are a great replacement for a frame.

    I personally hate frames, I prefer just messing with tables, and if I
    absolutley need frames then I use IFRAMES. Furthermore, I can't quite tell
    what you want to accomplish with those frames but I would recommend you stay
    away from them.

    Hello DaveF,

    > How do I get my hands on a Whidbey Beta????


    It's not available via a public beta yet, however, if you have an MSDN Universal subscription, it is available via the Subscriber Downloads.
