How would i change iframe content from another? ? I just need the 1 line code not a whole example, what i have atm is the page refreshes and a new variable is given i want the variable displayed on another iframe.
i got a page with menus on top and an iframe in the middle of this page. Now what i want to know is how can i change iframe's content when i click on the menu's hyperlinks. Like when i click the "About" in the menu i want to see about.html in iframe.
Getting to the poiint; I have a 'index.html' document that creates 3 iframes, each within a row of a 1 column, 3 row table. So I have a top (frame1), middle,(frame2) and bottom(frame3). Frame1 src="header.html" is a descriptive banner. Frame2 src="Start.html" is where the real application does all the work. Frame3 src="footer.html" is a footer, that may contain 1 or more images or small buttons.
I will include the code for index.html at the end:
What I can't seem to do is have "start.html" change the content or src of frame1, recall start.html is the src of frame2. When a button within a form within start.html is pressed (onclick), a cgi (c program) outputs new html into frame2, a mainmenu of buttons. Now frame2 contains a list of buttons, and I want frame1 to contain text "Main Menu". Likewise, in the mainmenu, when the settings button is pressed a cgi program will output the settings HTML to frame2, and I want frame1 to contain the text "Settings".
Sure, the cgi program could change/re-write the contents of "header.html", but whats the best method, and then, how to reload the iframe, or change it's src.
The content is coming from an Ajax request. The content gets used more than once on the page for other purposes which is why I don't simply change the iframe src--I have to do an ajax request regardless so I'm trying to avoid multiple calls.
After I load the content, I need modify the height of the iframe so it fits snuggly around the content.
Calculating the height isn't a problem with the exception that it's not always correct and I think it's because the calculation is happening before images have downloaded.
I don't seem to be able to rely on a `load` or `ready` event to delay the calculation. The load event is the only one that tiggers on a change of iframe content, but it doesn't see the new content.
I am a little confused about this and whether this is an appropriate approach. I have put this together so far. What it does is display a different html page into the IFrame if the person clicks the link. However, this is not what I want to do. What I want to do, is if Windows XP is detected to display load1.html into the Iframe and if Windows Vista is detected to display load2.html into the iframe.
I have a situation where I'd like to read/parse the content of a file I've read into an <IFRAME>. I've looked through various FAQs and searched forums, and the closest I get to accessing the file content is
where myIframe is the node from getElementById(). But while I can see the content of the file on my web page, I get an empty string from the above reference. How do I get to the file?
In test.php I just have: <div id="inside_frame">this is some text</div> I don't get any errors in the console and the alert() just returns an empty string. I've also tried just placing the iframe directly in the html and that gets the same result too.
I've been able to get the iFrame to resize to the content - see this link - it's pretty simple. My only problem, is if the user clicks a link so that another page is displayed, the iFrame doesn't resize. It will only resize when the parent page is reloaded. So, not sure what to do about that.
I have a page where I load in a template from another company via IFRAME, the template I cannot change, but on a certain page of the template within the iframe I would like to tell the user some extra information, but my page remains the same and only the information in the iframe reloads, so is there a way to tell when the iframe changes so i can innerHtml some extra info on certain parts?
I'M working on a web page. My main index got a fix menu bar (title bar + menu (buttons with over effects, etc).
I used table to place my content so it would have one big banner with buttons and two iframes that would show two different content.
I worked so far that my main index render the frame with their respective backgrounds all detailled in css, fonts, align etc etc.
Is it possible to create blocks of information, all with the same CSS and then, just making the buttons tell the iframe which content to show ? The back ground will never change, just the content. IS it possible ?
I am trying to access the content of an iframe. I have search google and read a couple of other post, but my problem is a little bit more complicated. I can't use the ...contents().find("whatever") function though the result is of content type text/plain. In other words: There is not HTML is the result. The result cannot be tampered with either. Because contents, html and text are not really helping me I thought to use a counter. Whenever the length would be more than 1 I would show the result. But that doesn't seem to work either.
I have a form in my page and I want to implement an autosave feature. For that, I submit all the fields in the form every 2 minutes via AJAX, so I can save a Draft.
The problem is, that the textarea used for the body of the message is modified to be a Rich Text Editor (with MceEdit). Thisdynamically generates an iframe that holds the styled text, and only populates the textarea with that content on sumbit.
So, I want to be able to read the iframe contents with jquery, so I can POST it via AJAX to the autosave method. I hope I've provided all the necessary details. If not, feel free to ask for more.
Can anyone help me figure out a way to resize the frame even though its content is dynamically generated as the page with the frame is loaded? I've copied below the search script and the html page with the iFrame that needs to resize. Ideally, whatever solution I use shouldn't involve editing the .js file I've attached, since this is generated automatically by the WYSIWYG program.
I would like to make the pages that appear inside my i-frame to hide the top 20 pixels; something like a negative margin. The idea is that I could put a banner there that will be invisible when the page in viewed in the i-frame, but will show up properly if a user views the page outside of the i-frame. Does anybody know if this is possible, or am I on the wrong track?
