View Full Version : iframe height

06-16-2007, 06:25 PM

I posted this query on another thread, but there it was kinda off-topic since the thread was intended to discuss another problem, which got solved.

I have an iframe that fetches content from a different domain. This is my URL, which has an iframe that fetches content from another site careerbuilder.co.in (this is a partnership channel, so they will co-operate if there are small things they need to do in their code, like putting something in the body tag or adding some script, though I would ideally like everything to be done in this page, and not in their pages).


Now, I want that iframe's height to match that of the specific page that has loaded from careerbuilder.co.in. I have tried several different approaches, but 3 days later I am at square 1.

Here is the source code of that page:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN">
<TITLE>fullhyd.com's Career Center - Hyderabad's largest job database</TITLE>
<SCRIPT TYPE="text/javascript">
var loaded = 1;
function loadMyPages(pageA, pageB, pageC, pageD)
if (loaded>1)
window.frames["frame1"].location.href = pageA;
window.frames["frame3"].location.href = pageB;
window.frames["120x600"].location.href = pageC;
window.frames["frame4"].location.href = pageD;
// -->
<DIV ID="Layer1">
<IFRAME NAME="frame1" FRAMEBORDER="0" SCROLLING="NO" WIDTH="790" HEIGHT="85" SRC="careerbuilder/header.html" MARGINWIDTH="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0"></IFRAME>
<DIV STYLE="float: left; padding-left: 4px">
<IFRAME NAME="frame4" FRAMEBORDER="0" SCROLLING="NO" WIDTH="631" HEIGHT="235" SRC="careerbuilder/menu.html" MARGINWIDTH="0" MARGINHEIGHT="0"></IFRAME>
<IFRAME NAME="frame2" FRAMEBORDER="0" SCROLLING="NO" WIDTH="631" HEIGHT="650" SRC="http://www.careerbuilder.co.in" onload="loadMyPages('careerbuilder/header.html','careerbuilder/footer.html','http://www.fullhyderabad.com/adserver/iframes/120x600.php','careerbuilder/menu.html')"></IFRAME>
<DIV STYLE="padding-left: 5px;">
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" SRC="http://www.fullhyderabad.com/adserver/iframes/resize.js"></SCRIPT>
<IFRAME NAME="120x600" ID="120x600" SRC="http://www.fullhyderabad.com/adserver/iframes/120x600.php" WIDTH="125" HEIGHT="600" FRAMEBORDER="0" SCROLLING="NO"></IFRAME>

<IFRAME NAME="frame3" FRAMEBORDER="0" SCROLLING="NO" WIDTH="631" SRC="careerbuilder/footer.html"></IFRAME>

The iframe named "frame2" is what I am struggling with. Everytime that someone clicks on any link from that iframe, the iframe needs to resize so that the new page that loads fits into the frame, hight-wise.

Has anyone struggled with this problem before? I'd be quite grateful for any ideas.

Thank you for the time spent reading this!
