Hi there,

I have a site starting with the page "index.aspx" which contains an iframe and its source is default.aspx (in fact the original start up page is default.aspx, I used iframe just to hide the URL)

while I am browsing other pages linked to default.aspx and click the refresh button, browser goes back to dafeult.aspx.

How can I stay on the current page?

Thanks...

You can't. When you load the page, the content of the iframe is determined by the src attribute. You would have to change the src attribute to change the page loaded when you refresh.

Obscuring the URI is pretty pointless anyway. Anyone who wants to find it can do so with little difficulty, so you just create an annoying barrier for the visitor.

The browser refresh button will always reload the parent frame, not the current src of the iframe. One option you can use would be to include a refresh button in the actual iframe page, displayed prominently so people are likely to use it instead of the browser one. But it's not foolproff obviously.


Each iframe page would have the following, with the form action set the the name of the page:

<html>
<head>
<script language="JavaScript1.2">
<!--
function refresh()
{
    window.location.reload( false );
}
//-->
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form method="GET" action="contacts.htm">
<input type="button" onclick="refresh()" value="Refresh Page" name="mybutton">
</form>
<h1>Contact Us Page</h1>
</body>
</html>
