View Full Version : IFrame link

07-10-2005, 09:19 AM
I have an iframe from TryItOn.aspx called iFrameTryItOn. There are links in the IFrames. It goes back to TryItOn.aspx. Unfortunately, it opens the the page inside the IFrame. Is there a way around?

don't use an iframe, use some CSS to look like an iframe.....

then when you click a link inside the pseudo "iframe", the link will refresh the whole page, not just the "iframe" window....

Like this: http://www.citrusmoon.net/miscitems/mimic/this2.html.

Or something like parent.location.href="TryItOn.aspx" unless you are wanting a new window?

I don't know that you can do that in css. Is it hard to do? Do you have a sample code? I don't know where to begin. I'll try to find one.

I'm going to try parent.location.href too.

Why not use -

<a href="link.html" target="_top">Link</a>

... no need for CSS/Javascript.

You can also use "_parent" to go to the immediate parent of the iFrame.

I tried _parent, _top, and _search. It does not work.

My mistake, I think targetting is only for frames, not iFrames.

You will need javascript then as Mr J said.

<a href="#" onclick="window.location.href='yourpage.html'">

<a href="#null" onclick="parent.location.href='yourpage.htm'">CLICK</a>


<a href="yourpage.htm" target="_top">CLICK</a>

Both the above work
