P: 200
Hi, I need help please.

I need to create a textbox with a report url in an iframe below.
Onclick of button create IFrame and pass textbox value into parameter of iframe src.

I'm not to sure how to do this, i think some javascript is needed as I want the button to check the textbox is not blank value first and then create iframe and pass textbox value as parameter.

Does anyone have another method where there are 2 iframes:
Having the textbox & button in first frame - then Onclick check textbox not blank and load second iframe - load and pass textbox value as parameter.

Yes, it was a JavaScript question - moved to JavaScript.

Thanks for posting your solution, but I noticed one thing: you've probably got a missing colon for the short-hand if-else syntax.

PS. can you please ensure you use code tags properly (without a colon in the opening and closing tag). Thanks.
