The CONTENIDO backend is divided into several frames.

Frame is a systemwide ressource.

Frame header

The header frame contains the linked logo, the current client and user name, a language switcher, icons to My CONTENIDO, Info and Logout and last but not least the main- and subnavigation.

Frame left_deco

This frame usually contains an icon which allows to hide the whole left frame (containing the left_deco, left_top & left_bottom frames). When this feature is used, this icon is displayed in the right_top frame instead so that the left frame can be displayed again.

Frame left_top

The upper left frame is used for tasks/actions. TODO explain how to implement these

Frame left_bottom

This frame is usually used for the display of menus as lists or trees. Clicking on a menu item usually changes the content of the right_top & right_bottom frame. TODO explain how to achieve this

Frame right_top

This frame is used for tabs. Usually each subarea has its own tab. Clicking on a tab usually changes the content of the right_bottom frame. TODO explain how to achieve this

Frame right_bottom

The right_bottom frame is by far the largest frame and contains the main content to be displayed.

Name vs. ID

When refering to a frame as link target, the obove mentioned names are used whereas in URLs their ID has to be used. The mapping of names to IDs is as follows:




Container frames

There are container frames (content, left & right) which just have a structural purpose. They are not meant to display content by themself. The content frame contains the frames left and right whereas left contains the frames left_deco, left_top & left_bottom and right contains the frames right_top and right_bottom.
