Dynamic Menu development target control question....


I was wondering if anybody had an answer to an issue I am having with the way the Dynamic Menu behaves. I have created a Java iview that builds a menu for the end user based on third party application dB. This menu is built via a Dynpage application and utilises the tree htmlb control to display the generated menu.

This menu works fine, however when the user clicks an option the entire workarea under the menu bars is used to display the results, i.e. the detailed navigation and dynamic menu area is no longer available and the user is forced to retrigger the start page to see them again.

I've developed this before in EP5.0 and used the "_Desktop" target to maintain the menu display but EP6.0 has a totally different framework. I know I could create an iView that controled a menu and display <FRAME> but this would be less elegant that utilising the dynamic menu.

Does anybody know how to "target" the page I am trying to display in the main body of the users display ?

Many thanks

    I don't think there is a way (at least not a good one) to do it easy.

    Perhaps the most elegant solution is to build a new iview which you place by the side of the menu, and communicate with client side eventing from the menu iview. Remember to include the client event listener code for each page in this new iview

    A hack could also be possible since

    the names of the iframes of the portal is generated to be ivuFrm_page0ivuX where x is a number which increments with one for each iview, but this might change in future version and is not recommended at all
