JavaScript iframe resezing issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


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?

Work around cross scripting issue (iframe)

I want to know how I can get the button in the iframe to send the selected item in the dropdown box to a text box that is out side of the iframe. The setup is as follows This is the source of the Php page. The iframe receives the controls from the aspx page on another website. 2 separate websites. The asp.net site sends a dropdown box a label and a button to the page below (php page):<iframe id="hdnFrm" name="hdnFrm" src="" scrolling="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" vspace="0" hspace="0" style="width:90%; height:50px"></iframe> <form action='http://www.link-exchangers.com/adv_links_addbycustomer.aspx' target='hdnFrm' method='post'> <table width=90% align=center cellpadding=2 cellspacing=0 border=0> <tr><td valign=top>Contact email: </td><td><input type=text name=web_email value="" style='width:250px'></td></tr> <tr><td valign=top>Web site title: </td><td><input type=text name=web_title value="" style='width:250px'></td></tr> <tr><td valign=top>Your url: </td><td><input type=text name=web_url value="http://" style='width:

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>

Viewstate issue when calling button click event from Javascript

I have a javascript that asks a confirmation on search click. If the user has made some changes to the data in grid (gridview) on click of Search, a confirmation is asked to Save or Continue Search. If Yes, Save the records by invoking Save click from javascript. If No, Search click is invoked. While Search click happens correctly, Save click results in an error which reads like this..  "Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that <machineKey> configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster. " I know the Viewstate is what causing the problem, where the control is not loaded but script is trying to invoke it's click event. Any help is appreciated. At the end of the day, all i need is to invoke Save click from javascript.   -- Viswanth VG  

Access an IFrame's body tag in javascript

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 window.history.back() issue with Modal popup extender



I have a asp.net page that has a list of items. When one of the items from the list is clicked a details page is displayed. This details page has a link button to show a popup for history of the item. The details page also has a button with text 'Back'.  The back button has onclick event set to  "javascript:window.history.back();".

This back button works fine and goes back to the first page. However when the user is on the second page and opens the pop up by clicking on the link button, the back button stop working and displays Webpage has expired message.

Any help would be appreciated.




SQL & JavaScript - Apostrophe Issue, SELECT statement is not returning any results.



Any help would be great on this.

I have the following code within an .asp page in JavaScript:

function SDsitecalls1(Sitename)

end function

The function is called via the below:

 <td style="width: 114px" class="style65"><a href="/suppdesk/customercalls.asp?customer=BSFMAN&site=Our+Lady''s+R+C+Sports+College"><%=SDsitecalls1("Our Lady's R C Sports College - Hbev")%></a></td> 

When this is ran I do not receive any errors but the SELECT command doesn't return any results (Just a 0). I've tried a few different methods such as using the Parameter SiteName and Single/Double Apostrophes however I either receive an error or blank results.

The function works with all other names however the apostrophe seems to cause issues here. Is there a way to extract the data without editing the SQL?

Thanks very much for the help,


Javascript issue - read from xml


I'd like to read data from my xml, but I always get a nasty "xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName(...).0' is null or not an object" error

I can make an alert with an entire xml, but the problem is i can't read it!?

Here is my JS code:

 <script type="text/javascript">
        function parseCommentXmlToHtml(xml, motivatorIndex) {

            function loadXMLString(xml) {
                if (window.DOMParser) {
                    parser = new DOMParser();
                    xmlDoc = parser.parseFromString(txt, "text/xml");
                else // Internet Explorer
                    xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM");
                    xmlDoc.async = "false";
                    alert(xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("images")[0].getAttribute("author_nick")); // ERROR
                return xmlDoc;



Here is my XML:

ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript and dynamic javascript issue


Hi all,


On my project I have a WebUserControl (.ascx) inside a page (the ascx is added statically on the HTML of the page, not dynamically).


On the ascx, on Page_Load, I need to generate a dynamic javascript function, and at the end register it (I do this everytime the page loads, being or not a PostBack).


Something like this is created:


private string GetScript()


return "function doSomething(){}";



And what I do after this on Page_Load is:



What I'm facing is this:


I'm able to get this working ok on my machine (XP SP2 Pro, IIS 5.1, Framework 3.5) and on a test server (Server 2003 Web Edition, IIS 6, Framework 3.5).


But on a high availability environment (production server and environment, Server 2003 Web Edition, IIS6, Framework 3.5, the machines have the same machine.config, the web sites have the same web.config file) the first time the page/webusercontrol shows up this works fine. If I make a postback, the javascript does not work. No error is thrown, no exception, just there is

ASP.NET, HTML, JavaScript Snippet Support (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

This post covers another useful improvement in VS 2010 - HTML/ASP.NET/JavaScript snippet support. Snippets allow you to be more productive within source view by allowing you to create chunks of code and markup that you can quickly apply and use in your application with a minimum of character typing.

Visual Studio has supported the concept of "snippets" for VB and C# in previous releases - but not for HTML, ASP.NET markup and JavaScript. With VS 2010 we now support snippets for these content types as well.

call JavaScript - jQuery code from ASP.NET Server-Side

jQuery got so close to me lately that I can see myself adding the scripts to my project almost unconsciously. The thing is, jQuery is very useful for me, in almost all situations and it has been a do or die enhancement for all my project since I first put my hands on it.

Of course while using it, you encounter few situations which need a bit of research to solve, mostly when you are trying to combine it with some other technologies like: UpdatePanels and ASP.NET Ajax. For instance there are many situations when I would like to run some jQuery magic based on some decision that I make on the server side.

GridView Javascript Click Row and Ajax

This article shows 2 common tasks with the ASP.NET GridView: Binding a List (generic) of objects as DataSource and on clicking a row, getting the values of the selected row by a javascript function. In the example a List with User-objects is displayed. On clicking a row containing the data of a User-object, the Id of the object is used to get the address of the user by an Ajax-call and display it in a details-field.
