i wanted to know if there was any code that shows an iframe with an address bar, kinda like a browser?

here's the iframe code i already have

<div align="center">
<iframe name="iframe" src="http://allaboutnetwork.freeforums.org/index.php" width="1125" height="1750" scrolling=yes frameborder=0></iframe>

Do you want a text input so you type in the site press enter and it goes to it? Or what?

actually no, i want it so people can see the address and only copy it, but have it integrated with the iframe

Ok, Here:

<script type="text/javascript">
var _ = function(id){ return document.getElementById(id); };
window.onload = function(){
var text = document.createElement('p');
var url = document.createTextNode(_('iframe').getAttribute('src'));
<div id="url">

<div align="center">
<iframe name="iframe" id="iframe" src="http://allaboutnetwork.freeforums.org/index.php" width="1125" height="1750" scrolling=yes frameborder=0></iframe>

theres a preoblem, i pasted the code but when i click alink within the frame the text just shows "http:/allaboutnetwork.freeforums.org". I want the text to be dynamic.

the iframe changes depending on the link?

the iframe changes depending on the link?

no, the iframe first opens up as the link to my forum, nile made a great code of kinda what i wanted but the text just says my forums home address, what i want is to have THAT text change to the address of what i am browsing in the iframe and every time the url changes i want that text to change with the changing url of the iframe.

that understandable?

cool... thats what i thought you meant... lemme think about it and ill see what i can come up with

k, thanks. i sadly haven't seen a code for this, hope someone can make it

its impossible to do unless the iframe href is within the same domain as the parent window... i hope this helps

wait a sec, i added a reply with some code earlier today and its gone? what happened? did you happen to see it? if not let me know and ill repost tomorrow

oh, thanks but you give me an example since im not really acquainted with HTML

ok, heres what i got... i must not have posted it or something... like i said before, it will only work if the link thats clicked in the iframe is on the same domain as the parent window. for example: the main window is www.yoursite.com. all the links in the iframe must me yoursite.com/nextpage... make sense? if you tried to like to, lets say google, it wouldnt work.

<body onLoad="document.getElementById('addressBar').innerHTML = document.getElementById('myIframe').src" style="font-family:Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif; text-align:center">
<div style="width:494px; height:14px; border:solid 1px #000000; font-size:12px; margin:0 auto; padding:3px" id="addressBar"></div>
<iframe onLoad="document.getElementById('addressBar').innerHTML = document.getElementById('myIframe').contentWindow.location.href" id="myIframe" style="width:500px; height:500px; border:solid 1px #000000; font-size:12px; margin:0 auto; padding:3px" src="page1.html"></iframe>

but wouldn't that defeat the whole purpose of the iframe

08-21-2009, 08:45 PM
no... the iframe will still work, javascript just cant get the href (the URL of the iframe content) if its not on your domain.
