How can I check when an IFRAME is loaded ?

Eli
Hi,

I've created a dynamic IFRAME and inserted it in the document. Then I
changed the src property to some URL (not the same domain as the main
document). I want to check when the IFRAME is loaded and then get its
title to put in the main document.

function GetTitle()
{
var
ifr_title=document.getElementById('myiframe').cont entWindow.document.title;
alert('The IFRAME was loaded and its title is:\n'+ifr_title);
}
var ifr=document.createElement('IFRAME');
ifr.id='myiframe';
ifr.style.width='100%';
ifr.style.height='100%';
ifr.src='http://www.php.net';
ifr.onload=GetTitle;
document.appendChild(ifr);

But it seems that the GetTitle() function is never called, tho the
IFRAME was loaded. How can I make this work?

-thanks, Eli

Try
if (ifr.addEventListener) {
ifr.addEventListener('load', GetTitle, false);
}
else if (ifr.attachEvent) {
ifr.attachEvent('onload', GetTitle);
}
document.appendChild(ifr);
You need to append the ifr to
document.body.appendChild(ifr);

Your script in the main document is not allowed to read out the title of
the document in the iframe if that document is loaded from a different
origin.
