hi expertz,

i am using a form, in which i use IFRAME to show up dialogs instead of WINDOW.OPEN or SHOWMODALDIALOG.

my problem is when IFRAME is active, and we click outside the IFRAME, the IFRAME disappears, is it possible to SHOW the IFRAME till a CANCEL button in the IFRAME is clicked ?

thanks

hi rozanaz,

-- main.html
<html>
<script language=javascript>
function OpenDlg()
{
            document.frames("DialMatrix").document.body.innerHTML = "Loading...";
                         document.frames("DialMatrix").style.display='block';
            document.frames("DialMatrix").src = "test.htm";
}
</script>

<input type=button value=Activate onclick=OpenDlg()>

<iframe id="DM" name="DM" onfocusout="Focusout()" style="display:none;position:absolute;width:600;height:400;z-index:3;border=1 black solid;"></iframe>
</html>

-- test.html
<html>
<script language=javascript>
function Close()
{
      frameElement.style.display = 'none';
}
</script>
<input type=button value=Close onclick=Close()>
</html>

i ll display the main.html first, onclick of button this frame is shown. the IFRAME should close only on clicking the CLOSE button in test.html. it should not close even if the user clicks on the visible portions of main.html

thanks

Hi  rkg_eagle,

Try to remove:

 onfocusout="Focusout()"

from

<iframe id="DM" name="DM" onfocusout="Focusout()" style="display:none;position:absolute;width:600;height:400;z-index:3;border=1 black solid;"></iframe>

this works fine, i changed your javascript around a little bit, the result is the same (apart from this way works ;) and it also will work in all browsers now.

All you have to change is main.html

<html>

<head>
  <script language=javascript>
    function OpenDlg()
    {
      document.frames['DM'].document.body.innerHTML="Loading...";
      document.getElementById('DM').style.display="block";
      document.frames['DM'].location.href="test.html";
    }
  </script>
</head>

<body>
  <input type=button value=Activate onclick=OpenDlg()>
  <iframe name="DM" id="DM" style="display:none;position:absolute;width:600;height:400;z-index:3;border=1 black solid;"></iframe>
</body>

</html>
