I never use Domino Designer Framesets for web apps if I don't have to. They
are too limited. You can create a HTML frameset using a Page, Form or
Document, depending on your needs. Use passthrough HTML, brackets or make
the form or page content HTML.

I have used both a Page, a Form and a Document for the dummy page, for
different needs. It doesn't have to contain more than a valid HTML page
with the meta tag, since it won't be visible

This is an example of a frameset I've used. There are two frames, and the
size of the refresh frame is set to *, while the other frame is set to
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<title>Title here</title>
<frameset framespacing="0" frameborder="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0"
border="false" rows="*,100%">
      <frame name="refresh" src="webpages/refresh" scrolling=No
frameborder=0 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 noresize>
      <frame name="pviewer" src="webpages/home" scrolling=Auto
frameborder=0 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 noresize>

This is an example of the "refresh" web page:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<title>Dummy page</title>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="300; url=refresh">
<body text="#000000" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">

This is exactly what I'm looking for.  Did you use notes designer frames or
insert your own in the document via passthru html?

Was the dummy page a notes designer page too?  (i'm guessing so, or how
would refreshing the page continue the session, right?)

In other words, could you expand a tad on your technique?

Hi Rick,

I've had a similar problem before, with sessions timing out when there are
many fields to fill in. What I did was to put the web page inside a
frameset, and add a hidden frame to the frameset. In the hidden frame I
loaded another, dummy, web page with a refresh meta tag, which reloaded the
dummy page every 5 minutes. This would keep the person logged in, without
having to save the document or click on anything. Of course, this could
affect security if the users were to leave their desks while having this
page open, and that is something you would have to consider.

I used the meta tag <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="300; url=xxx">
where xxx corresponds to the page itself. 300 is the value in seconds, and
is the same as 5 minutes.

Hope this helps.
