Hi Antony,

For future reference, it may be better to use the Zen community at for more help. (I am not
sure if you already posted your question there, but it's a much better
resource for Zen-specific questions.)

Nonetheless, I can still provide you with some help. In your XData
block, define your iframe as follows:
<i frame id="dashboardFrame"
width="1000" height="750"/>
(Note that you can use any id -- dashboardFrame is fairly descriptive
for this case.)

Then create a function something like the following:
ClientMethod changeDashboard(newDashboard) [ Language = javascript ]
     var dashFrame = zen('dashboardFrame'); // here the zen() function
is a shortcut for zenPage.getComponentById()
     var dashURL = '_DeepSee.UserPortal.DashboardViewer.zen?DASHBOARD='
+ newDashboard;

In your onclick handling for your menu or button, you can then make the
onclick something like:

I hope that helps,
