Obtaining ID of container IFrame

My HTML is shown in an iframe. There is a link in the HTML that needs
the ID of the iframe to be used in the onclick event. How do I get it?
I tried accessing the target property, but it turns out to be
undefined. Also I do not know the frame number in the parent's frame
collection. SO I cannot do parent.frames[2].id.

Please help.

By now there is wide support for
window.frameEle ment
so e.g.
if (window.frameEl ement) {
alert(window.fr ameElement.id);
will do in recent IE and Mozilla and Opera.
IE's documenation is here:
<http://msdn.microsoft. com/library/default.asp?url =/workshop/author/dhtml/reference/properties/frameelement.as p>
Supported there since IE 5.5.
I can't tell you the exact Mozilla and Opera versions from which on this
is supported.
You can always walk up to the parent window and parent.document and look
through the iframe elements.

And somehow your request sounds as if all you want is e.g.
<iframe name="frameName " src="whatever.h tml"></iframe>
<a href="whatelse. html" target="frameNa me">link</a>
but perhaps you really need script.

08242005 1416 GMT-5 Recently some of you helped me with a script to change images. Well I was asked to make a change to the script and not knowing if what the school system is even possible, Ill ask you all. The script just loads some images and roates through them. However, the school wants to be able to put more and more pictures in the folder and the script pull all the images for rotation.

Here's the functionality I'm after: I need for a page to display a photo. When users click on other links within the page, the photo changes. I'd like to swap out the photo without doing a Postback of the entire page. I initially implemented this with an aspx page that contains an IFame which displays only the picture (gif). The behavior was what I wanted, but the problem is that the IFrame does not resize with the photo......

Hello, I am bringing up an iFrame with a calendar control in it in coordination with a text box that holds a date field. In my code behind class I add a method call to the text box's OnFocus event that calls the javascript method that shows and positions the iFrame (arguments are the text control, and the desired x and y coordinates of the iFrame). Right now I use hardcoded fixed values for the calendar location - it was expedient and...

hello , I have an issue positionating some pics I want to anchor to an existing table cell but I cant just place regular position on the cell because the background is fixed height and the set of pics is bigger then fixed space. SO I put them in a position:absolute div and I gave a position:relative to the container td. This seems to work in IE but in Firefox position is relative to the browser window, not the cell. I need a compatible solution...

Hi everyone. I just wanted to know if there was any way to use script to display a list of methods linked to a particular object?

Hi, The current scenario is that I have an iframe inside an asp.net web page where I periodically check the url inside the iFrame. I know that all this information can be obtained in the client-side during a page load. Does anyone know an efficient way to obtain the current url of the src attribute of the iFrame? Or if there is a better solution? Many thanks

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
