Viewing and setting frame properties and attributes

Viewing and setting frame properties and attributes

Use the Property inspector to view and set most frame properties.

You may also want to set some frame attributes, such as the title attribute (which is not the same as the name attribute), to improve accessibility. You can enable the accessibility authoring option for frames to set attributes when you create frames (see Optimizing the workspace for accessible page design), or you can set attributes after you insert a frame. To edit accessibility attributes for a frame, you can use the Tag inspector to edit the HTML code directly.

To set properties for a frameset, see Viewing and setting frameset properties.

To view or set frame properties:

  1. Select a frame by doing one of the following:
    • Alt-click (Windows) or Shift-Option-click (Macintosh) a frame in the Document window’s Design view.
    • Click a frame in the Frames panel (Window > Frames).
  2. In the Property inspector (Window > Properties), click the expander arrow in the lower-right corner to see all of the frame properties.

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

  3. Make changes as necessary.

    For information on how to set specific options in the frame Property inspector, see Setting frame Property inspector options.

To set accessibility values for a frame:

  1. In the Frames panel (Window > Frames), select a frame by placing the insertion point in one of the frames.

    Dreamweaver highlights the frame tag in the code.

  3. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh) in the code, then select Edit Tag.

    The tag editor appears.
