    Question javascript function has no properties in javascript console

    'm getting errors in Firefox everytime I try to run this frame resize code, but it works fine in IE. I can't seem to figure out what the problem is with it.

    The error is: Error: theFrame has no properties
    Line: 8

    The line that the javascript console is showing an error for is in italics.

    code from page:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    var defaultCols="100px,*";
    var hiddenCols="0px,*";
    function ShowHideMenu(){
    theFrame = document.getElementById("framed");
    if(theFrame.cols == defaultCols) theFrame.cols=hiddenCols;
    else theFrame.cols=defaultCols;
    <frameset cols="100px,*" name="framed">
    <frame src="lframe.htm" name="frameMenu">
    <frame src="mframe.htm" name="content">

    Come someone let me know what I'm doing wrong here?

    Thanks to everyone for all of your help in advance!

    Hi mrblack,

    document.getElementById() needs an ID on the element.

    For example:

    document.getElementByid('framed') will take the id 'framed'.
    <frameset cols="100px,*" name="framed" id="framed">

    I think it will work.
