Need a way to test the loading status of a frame in Firefox

392 Expert 256MB
Hi,

I have a status bar that works in IE that I now need to get working in Firefox. It checks the status of a frame's .readyState attribute to see if the frame is done rendering. I am wondering what, if any, item I could test in Firefox to see if the frame is done rendering.

The onLoad event will not work since it triggers as soon as a page is done downloading. The frames I am testing user Ajax and a lot of fancy JavaScript when they load so they may not be done rendering for quite a while after the page has downloaded to the user's browser.

I have read though the Mozilla DOM docs and so far have not found a method or attribute I could use to test a frames status. I am assuming there must be some way to do it other wise AJAX would not work nearly as well in Firefox.

Any ideas?

Get the Firefox extension Firebug. Everything you could possibly want.

Actually I have Firebug, and yes it is very powerful, but what does that have to do with my post?
