HTML element: <frameset>

Availability

Partial support as of BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.2.

Full support as of BlackBerry Device Software version 4.6.

The <frameset> element presents multiple documents within a single browser window, and defines the layout of the contained frames.

Differences between HTML, XHTML, and XHTML-MP

XHTML-MP does not support framesets.

Considerations

Although the <frameset> element is supported by the browser, this is mainly to support content designed for desktop browsers. You should not include framesets in content designed for the BlackBerry device.

When rendered in the BlackBerry® Browser in column view, the layout definition is ignored, and each pane is displayed vertically in the order in which they are encountered.

In versions of the BlackBerry Device Software earlier than version 4.6, the rows attribute is ignored.
