Hey guys

Remember framesets? I need to do that again. 

I use drop-downs but my users sometimes forget to close one drop down before opening another and get confused... That was a complaint. 

With framesets only one content area could be shown at a time. I know framesets have been removed from Robohelp 2020, but I need similar functionality. The key piece is that only one content area can show (otherwise they are confused).

Any suggestions on how I can do this is Robohelp? I tried bootstrap pills in Dreamweaver but... no cigar yet.

Thanks for any suggestions that you can provide.

I'm not quite sure what you want. Could you make each dropdown a separate topic? That way only one piece of content shows at a time,

 

Otherwise, do you have an illustration of what you're trying to achieve?

You can still insert an iFrame.

I went with this

<ul class="nav nav-tabs" id="myTab" role="tablist">
  <li class="nav-item">
    <a class="nav-link active" id="home-tab" data-toggle="tab" href="#home" role="tab" aria-controls="home" aria-selected="true">Home</a>
  </li>
  <li class="nav-item">
    <a class="nav-link" id="profile-tab" data-toggle="tab" href="#profile" role="tab" aria-controls="profile" aria-selected="false">Profile</a>
  </li>
  <li class="nav-item">
    <a class="nav-link" id="contact-tab" data-toggle="tab" href="#contact" role="tab" aria-controls="contact" aria-selected="false">Contact</a>
  </li>
</ul>
<div class="tab-content" id="myTabContent">
  <div class="tab-pane fade show active" id="home" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="home-tab">...</div>
  <div class="tab-pane fade" id="profile" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="profile-tab">...</div>
  <div class="tab-pane fade" id="contact" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="contact-tab">...</div>
</div>
