View Full Version : change source of iframe after page has loaded

02-03-2011, 05:05 PM
Im very new to java scripting so any help would be truly appreciated. I have a single web page that loads several iframes. One of the iframe pages has to be logged in first. I have that taken care of but once the page is loaded I need to change the source to a link with in the page. My guess is I need something to execute the code like a onload or something. This is what Ive been trying to get to work but like I said a newb!

The iframe in question is named "cad"
the initial source once loaded is 'https://urlname.com/mainmenu.asp'
the source I need to change to is 'https://urlname.com/UnitStatusF.asp?agency_id=28'

function ChangesSrc()
var iframeid = document.getElementById(cad);
var unitstatus = 'https://urlname.com/UnitStatusF.asp?agency_id=28'
if (iframeid.src = 'https://urlname.com/mainmenu.asp')
iframeid.src = unitstaus;
return false;

Like this:-

<script type = "text/javascript">
function changesrc() {
if (document.getElementById("myframe").src = "http://www.yahoo.com") {
document.getElementById("myframe").src = "http://www.google.com";

<body onload = "changesrc()">

<iframe height = "500" width = "800" id="myframe" src = "http://www.yahoo.com">


Your closing CODE tag is wrongly shown as [[CODE]
