i know its not close, but just to be clear what i'm talking about.


RE: write to an iframe

With the help of this article here:


(found using Google), I came up with this:


    <script type="text/javascript">
        function populateIframe() {
            var ifrm = document.getElementById('myIframe');
            ifrm = (ifrm.contentWindow) ? ifrm.contentWindow : (ifrm.contentDocument.document) ? ifrm.contentDocument.document : ifrm.contentDocument;
            ifrm.document.write('Hello World!');
<body onload="populateIframe();">
    <iframe id="myIframe"></iframe>

It works in IE6, FF1, NN7, and Opera7. It probably works in other browsers, too.

Hope this helps,

The answers you get are only as good as the information you give!
