Well I think I have a workaround for the cross-browser compatibility issues with dynamic IFRAME resizing and the Static Pages plugin.

PHP Formatted Code


<head>
<script language="JavaScript">
 function resize() {
  var iframe = document.all.NAME;
   iframe.height=document.frames("NAME").document.body.scrollHeight;
  }
</script>
</head>
<body onload=resize();>
<iframe src="URL" name="NAME" scrolling="no" width="100%" height=100% frameborder="0" onload="this.height=this.contentDocument.height"></iframe>
</body>



 


Just replace the src=URL and the NAME wiith your own data and paste it into the Static Page block and it seems to work fine in both IE and Firefox and Opera (newest builds, IE complains a little about this.height but so what...). I have not tested it in other browsers yet but I'm happy with the resutls so far... So if you don't need to support old,old browsers this will make you a happy camper.

I tried your code , but its giving error while running scripts like

" Access is denied , Do you want to continue running scripts" and not resizing the height.

Do you have any idea about what the problem might be and have any solution for that?

Thank you very much

kranthi.

Is it possible to do this with ID instead of name tag?
Also, is it possible to retrive the name tag of a frame
once you have the frame id ?

The reason why I ask is I have older code that does this with
iframe id. It doesn't work with opera. I'd like to leave the
main html page the same and make changes in the javascript
function to resize the way you are doing the resize.

Thanks!!!
Josh
p.s.
Nice job figuring this out ...

this line of syntax is wrong. might work in IE but not FF
PHP Formatted Code
iframe.height=document.frames("NAME").document.body.scrollHeight;


here is the correct syntax
PHP Formatted Code
iframe.height=window.frames["NAME"].document.body.scrollHeight;

Thank you so much! ive been struggling to do this for days now.
Found loads of other tutorials how to do it with both JS and AJAX, tho none of em worked on a php generated webpage.
(a specified category of a forum, page doesn't really exist)

This one DOES work! YAY :banana:

A scrollbar does appear when its not needed tho im not really irritated by it, ill just play around with it to see if i can fix that, if not, its good like this.
(think mite have somthin to do with the margin i set up, but ill look into that later today.

Tnx again!

Hi the code works great in FF, I haven't been able to make it work in IE yet the way I'm using it,

My links are in a FLASH file.
I have on index file, with 2 iframes in it, with a flash header at the top and the other pages in the bottom iframe.

Any advice for the code to work in the flash??

here is the action script 1.0 I'm currently using:

on (press) {
getURL("gallerij.html", "main"Wink;

Hi there,

been looking for something like this for ages... and finally one that works... well nearly... if a link is used within the iframe then the iframe will not resize to the new content... the iframe height remains the same...

does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks

looks like what i have been looking for... 1 issue it doesnt seem to make the iframe smaller when you reload to a shorter content -- at least not in opera, if this is what it is im fine with that but if there is a fix awesome... i wasnt able to make the code work as the OP made it

PHP Formatted Code

<html>
        <head> 
<script language="JavaScript">
function resize() {
  var iframe = document.all.F1;
   iframe.height=window.frames("F1").document.body.scrollHeight;
  }
</script>

        </head>

        <body>
                <center>

a bunch of other stuff

<iframe name="F1" src ="frame1.php?cat=0" scrolling="no" width="630" height=100% frameborder="0" onload="resize()"</iframe>

</body>
</html>

 


he had a
PHP Formatted Code
<body onload="resize();>

that did not work for me... could this be where the shorting problem is comming from?

do i put that onload into the parent body or the iframe body?
thanks for your help

hello everbody,
I've found this script (here -> "http://forum.jswelt.de/javascript/31676-iframe-dynamisch-h-he-anpassen.html"Wink to change the iframe height dynamically.
it only works correctly in IE8 (other IE-browser not tested), other brother tested: mozFirefox, googleChrome and safari.
does anybody have an idea, how to make it work for the other browser?

function resizeMe(n, id) {
d=0;
ifObj=document.getElementsByName(n)[0];
p=(document.all)?'scroll':'offset';
eval("ifObj.style.height=window.frames[n].document.getElementsByTagName('body'Wink[0]."+p+"Height+"+d);
}

the iframe looks like that:

<iframe id="MContenIFrame" name="main" onload="javascript:parent.resizeMe('MContenIFrame'Wink;" src="start.html"> </iframe>


I'm searching for days, but still hasn't found any working solution for any browser other than IE8...
..thank you for any help!

My solution:
PHP Formatted Code

<script type="text/javascript">
function autoIframe(frameId, moreSpace){
    try {
        frame = document.getElementById(frameId);
        innerDoc = (frame.contentDocument) ? frame.contentDocument : frame.contentWindow.document;
        frame.style.height = innerDoc.body.scrollHeight + moreSpace +"px";
        document.getElementsByTagName("title")[0].innerHTML = innerDoc.getElementsByTagName("title")[0].innerHTML;
    }
    catch (err) {
        window.status = err.message;
    }
}
</script>

<iframe id="gallery_frame" src="/gallery2/embed_samples/inset.php" frameborder="0" width="100%" scrolling="auto" style="height:400px;" onload="if (window.parent && window.parent.autoIframe) {window.parent.autoIframe('gallery_frame',20);}">Your browser does not support inline frames</iframe>
 


@see it working here.
