Guide to Sample Pages
Listed below are the 4 main example pages generated by SiteSurfer Builder.
Each uses HTML frames to control the layout of pages, so that the applet runs
in one frame, and documents are displayed in another. Alternatively you may
choose to forgo frames and instead embed the applet in a top-level browser
window. If you choose this second option, be careful how you configure the
applet parameters, so they do not specify the same frame or browser window as the
applet. If the browser loads another document over an applet, the applet will
stop running, and will need to be reloaded the next time you visit the applet
- Column Frame Example (colframe.htm).
This example puts SiteSurfer
in a frame at the left and the document area in a frame on the right. Clicking
on an item in SiteSurfer will load that page in the document frame.
- Row Frame Example (rowframe.htm).
This example is different from
the Column Frame example in 2 ways. First, SiteSurfer is in a frame at the top and
the document area in a frame at the bottom. Second, SiteSurfer is configured
with the RESULTSTYPE parameter to display the search results list
in a new window, rather than embedded within the applet.
- Button Frame Example (butframe.htm).
This example illustrates a totally different way of launching SiteSurfer. Here,
the DISPLAYTYPE parameter tells the program to load only a button.
Clicking on the button loads a window containing the main SiteSurfer interface.
It is still important that the frame showing the button does not get overwritten or
closed, because that will close SiteSurfer.
Clicking on the Powered By SiteSurfer image, which is actually an HTML

window that is unlikely to be overwritten by opening a page anywhere else
in the browser. Therefore, it is safe to close or replace the image
link that launched the new window. Furthermore, SiteSurfer will continue
running until you close its window. More information on this topic is available
