document.getEle mentById stopped working after adding an iframe

I had a page that does some event setup on window.onload:

function prepEvents()
document.getEle mentById("menum ap_sales").onmo useover =
// etc

window.onload = prepEvents;
worked great, until the page where this javascript src is loaded now
contains an iframe. It seems that the document.getEle mentById() call
is returning null now. If I remove the iframe, it all works again.

Presumably it's something to do with having multiple documents now,
but how do I access the one I want?

Thanks for your help!

I don't know if you've read the original post, but it asked how to
reference elements when the page includes an iframe.
Perhaps could you when you post (and answer) copy a part (significative
part) of the previous post.
As we could understand of what i's question, matter, subject ...

The original code
was posted to demonstrate how elements were being referenced in the
page without an iframe, that worked.
No, nothing was worked in previous code : no JS ... !
The long code was posted when it
was asked for. Maybe I replied to the wrong person - apologies if
that's the case.

Never mind, thanks anyway.
Not time by now
I'll try to see it this evening (6 hours)

But if it would have been possible to have the code seen by a browser it
would be much better.

Hello, I want to make a hooverbox, which is shown when the mousepointer is not moved for a amount of time.

Hi, Talking about a js script which changes an iframe src through a "ref_to iframe.setAttribute("src", document_path);", I would like to launch a check() fct when this new document is loaded. Of course, knowing, I don't want (and can't n some cases where document is generated by a cgi script) to edit every possible document which is potentially loadable in the iframe.

Hey guys, I'm building a site for a landscaping business down the street and can't seem to get part of the code functioning correctly. The code fails on line 68 where I make a reference to an iframe's src property. Being that IE does not follow standard and considers an id, name, etc as a qualifying identifier for the document.getElementById object, I double checked to make sure that there's only one instance of id = "servif" and I never use...

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,...
