Access an IFrame's body tag in javascript

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I want to dynamically set some attributes in an IFrame (like textAlign).  I keep getting "undefined" for all the different things I try.  When I inspect the element, it seems as though I should be able to access the html > body tag from the iFrame object, but that is not the case:var myIFrame = document.getElementById("myIFrame"); alert(myIFrame.childNodes[0]); //Expecting "Html Node", getting "undefined" myIFrame.style.textAlign = "right"; //this does nothing even though I can set the style.textAlign attribute without the javascript failing, it doesn't do anything.  Looking at Chrome's element inspector, I'm able to get the desired result by placing an inline style on the body tag within the iFrame tag.

JavaScript iframe resezing issue



I have an iframe that is supplied by another application, inside the iframe I have my .Net application. However, I am having sizing issues, where one minute that pages in the .Net fit the frame perfectly and the next minute they don't, with a vertical and horizontal scroll bars appearing. All the .Net Pages use a Master Page and I have also fixed the size of the pages, but with no luck. What I would was thinking if possible is to pass some javascript between the .Net application and the iframe which will make the pages and the iframe resize themselves. Has anyone done this before and have some code that I could use?

Javascript to pass var in iframe to parent form

Why doesn't this form work when the button is clicked? It is inside an iframe. I sent the controls to an iframe from  a different website. When I hover my mouse over the Resubmit button, I can see the correct url in my browser bar. (lower left) This is the same one as the save button. Does the fact that the Resbmit button is in an iframe create a problem?  Is this a security issue?   I was trying to use the Copy url to clipboard button to copy the selected url in the dropdown to the clipboard. Then the user could paste it into the Recipcocal url field in the form and click the Save button again. (see picture) The form is on the page with the iframe. The copy button doesn't work either.  <form name="ctl01" method="post" action="http://www.link-exchangers.com/adv_links_addbycustomer.aspx" id="ctl01" target="hdnFrm"> <div> <input type="hidden" name="__VIEWSTATE" id="__VIEWSTATE" value="/wEPDwUaUXIyTcD6f05q0zIbv4QVbpto4s=" /> </div> <div> <input type="hidden" name="__EVENTVALIDATION" id="__EVENTVALIDATION" value="//2DwKU+M6MDwK8m8+dCQKy8rjSBwLD+aWMBALcwYfHCALrp+eHDwKggI3ODAKvtqqBBgKjs8y4CAKqiLHeDgK34agCBNfAteTeI3XoiXVXjCs/J0yEnNM=" /> </div>

How to access querystring values from javascript after url rewriting?

Hi mates, I´m using ASP.NET 3.5 with C#. The problem that I have is the following. I´m using url rewriting (in the Global.asax file) and people see urls like this:http://localhost:1855/uk/london but after I rewrite the urls I work internally with querystring values and the urls become somehting like this:http://localhost:1855/post.aspx?co=1&ci=1In my Global.asax after I create the proper url with the querystring values I just apply it with the following sentence (this is an example):Context.RewritePath("/post.aspx?co=1&ci=1");The problem is that from javascript using the following function I access the first url and not the second:function getQueryVariable(variable) { var query = window.location.search.substring(1); var vars = query.split("&"); for (var i = 0; i < vars.length; i++) { var pair = vars[i].split("="); if (pair[0] == variable) { return pair[1]; } } } I need to access the querystring values because I need to load values in a textbox using jQuery.autocomplete and Web Services. Can anyone tell me how to access the rewritten url to get the querystring values?Thanks in advance mates

Replacing a text question in a Survey using JavaScript at runtime (document.body.innerHTML.replace)

Hi, I want to replace some of the text in a SharePoint Survey at runtime.  The idea behind that is to add a "header" or "title" to questions that are related together.  For example, let's say I have 2 related questions, a page separator, and 2 more related questions: (yes/no type of questions): Q1.  Are you between 20 and 40? Q2.  Did you went to college?   --page separator-- Q3.  J2EE Q4.  C/C++ The result on the final Survey should look like this: Tell us about you. Are you between 20 and 40?  Did you went to college?   --page separator-- Indicate what programming languages you know: J2EE C/C++ Simply, I tried to use the document.body.innerHTML.replace() in order to replace:  - Q1 with: <h2>Tell us about you.</h2>  - Q2 with ''  - Q3 with: <h2>Indicate what programming languages you know:</h2>  - Q4 with: '' Using the technique below, I added the following code in SharePoint Designer in NewForm.aspx: <asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderId="PlaceHolderTitleAreaClass" runat="server"> <script id="onetidPageTitleAreaFrameScript"> document.getElementById("onetidPageTitleAreaFrame").className="ms-areaseparator"; document.body.innerHTML = document.body.innerHTML.replace(/Q1/g,'

Access PeopleEditor value using javascript

I had a need to do this and figured I would post my findings b/c it was a bit tricky.

Initially I tried to access the user with the following:

var names = document.getElementById('PE_CLIENT_ID').value;

where PE_CLIENT_ID is the ClientID of the PeopleEditor control.  This returned a boolean representing if there was a value in the control.

After investigating the source code for the control itself I discovered one PeopleEditor is made up of many html controls including:

Not able to access child controls in user control using javascript



I have a user control "SettingsControl" containing an ajax:CollapsiblePanelExtender which in turn has a GridView (gridView) and checkBoxes. On top of GridView we have two LinkButtons "Select All" and "Clear All". I have written to enable select all and clear all functionality. Select All should select all the rows in the grid by calling the following JavaScript written on the Client .aspx file.

function SelectAll(chk)
    //get reference of GridView control
    var grid = document.getElementById('<%= SettingsControl1.FindControl("gridView").ClientID %>');
    //variable to contain the cell of the grid
    var cell;

    if (grid.rows.length > 0)
        //loop starts from 1. rows[0] points to the header.
        for (i=1; i<grid.rows.length; i++)
            //get the reference of first column
            cell = grid.rows[i].cells[0];
