View Full Version : iFrame-name.location problem redirect parent window

05-05-2006, 12:35 AM
After executing the iFrame-name.location=url (which worked fine by way,) there is a very undesirable event; the parent window also gets redirected to the same url.:mad: I am calling this function from a click event on an Image object. I have tried everything from return(false); to window.event.cancelBubble = true; nothing stops the parent window from navigating. The interesting thing is, if I hit the Back button it goes back and still redirect the parent window automatically, over and over.

The odd thing is I have identical code in another project and I never had problems.

Here is a portion of my javascript func:

function clicked_SubmitScreensBtn() {

var url = "ovExplorer.asp?Action=show&QData=BLABLABLA";
var iFrDoc = document.frames("ifrmOVExplorer").document;


window.event.cancelBubble = true;

And this is my iFrame in the HTML of the parent window:

<iframe name="ifrmOVExplorer" id="ifrmOVExplorerID" src="blank.htm" style="Z-INDEX: 10; VISIBILITY: visible; POSITION: absolute; LEFT: 22; TOP: 380; WIDTH: 306px; HEIGHT: 280px;" marginwidth="1" marginheight="1" align="left" border="0" frameborder="0" scrolling="no">

Can anyone please help! :confused:
