Non-printable button and framesets

I'm trying to include a "Print" button on a page and don't want it to print itself. This can be normally be achieved using Java Script and using a frameset. But include CDML into the equation and this solution no longer works.

My first priority is to achieve a non-printable button, but I would also be interested to establish whether framesets can be used in conjunction with CDML.

Many thanks

Mike

"I'm trying to include a "Print" button on a page and don't want it to print itself."

Why? What are you trying to have printed?

If your client is trying to print a FileMaker record, that will print at the host end where FileMaker resides, not the client end.

If your clients want to print the Web page they are viewing, they already have that capability (e.g., Macintosh - "File/Print" or Netscape Navigator - "Print").

Keith, thanks for your reply. I'm trying to simplify the situation. Ever tried including contents of a web page using framesets and wish to provide visitors with the ability to only print the important bits excluding the contents component? This usually works OK for me, but when you introduce CDML into the equation, the CDML statements don't function correctly.

Thanks to all for replies. I've managed to get framesets working with CDML and am a very happy camper. The result is a really user friendly web page with a navigation/buttons/contents bar (incorporating a print button) in one frame and a schedule in the other frame. When I click on the print button it only prints the schedule and not the navigation/buttons/contents bar.
