sending data to server with iframe

Hello,

Do you know a dynamic way to send 10kb of text or more using an iframe?

I tried to do that with by creating, in javascript, a dynamic iframe,
then create a form into this iframe and put the data in a textarea and
then call a sumbit().

It looks nice and works on IE and FF but *not* on opera. In opera, we
cannot modify the content of an iframe for security reason. (as you can
see here: http://jtf.ploki.info/index.php?id=7 )

Is there another solution with iframe or I have to use xmlhttprequest
or other way?

Well, you don't specify your code so it's hard to know exactly what you
mean or where you are coming from on this. However, why use dynamic
IFrames? Why not have a single static iframe and give it a name
<iframe name=myframe id=myframe onload="..." ...> and then your form
would be in the main document, not the iframe: <from method=post
action="..." target=myframe name=myform>. Submit the form and it winds
up in the iframe.

Of course, there is a hit to the server, but I know of no way to avoid
this in FF on a form submission because the obvious method of
submitting to data: described at
http://www.w3.org/Submission/web-forms2/ is not yet implemented. And
submitting to about:blank is currently inacessible ("security") .
Unless you use a hacked version of GreaseMonkey, like I do. :)

I need to use iframe to create a floating frame. But the contents in the iframe is not a external html file. Rather, it will be dynamically created by jsp. How can I set the src attribute to a URL of a dynamically created html contents rather than a static html file. Thanks.

I need to send 1000 emails from an asp.net website. Normally I would use System.Web.Mail.MailMessage() to send thru an SMTP server. But the large amount of emails results in a timeout. My server administrator told me to write the emails to the “pickup directory” instead. I know that JMail can do this in ASP, but how do you do this in asp.net? -- --------------------

I have a situation where I want to send data, but I have no need for a response. It seems to me that XMLHTTPRequest is the best way to send the data, but I don't need any response back from the server. Basically, I'm writing js errors to an error log on the server side - and there is no need to inform the user that the error has been logged. The problem is that I don't want to sit with the request open & waiting for a response, when I...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
