I have an iframe which needs to be printed. What is the proper way of printing the inside content of the iframe, through a link Inside this iframe?

I would assume that you'd have to do it from inside the iframe. you could just add:
to the iframes page and that should work

I tried this really fast because I was interested to see if you could print from outside the iframe:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
if (document.getElementById(n).print) document.getElementById(n).print();
else if (window.frames[n].print) window.frames[n].print();
else if (top.frames[n].print) top.frames[n].print();
<br /><br />
<iframe name="my_iframe" id="my_iframe" src="http://www.google.com"></iframe>
What I found:
- the DOM object reference doesn't contain a print function
- the frames array reference does contain a print function, but I get "Access Denied" in IE and "Permission Denied" in FF, which makes sense
Looks like you'll need to add the link to the iframed page itself (as dusty suggested).
