Focus at the end of an iframe window

Hello.

I use the following code to focus an iframe when a button is pressed:

        window.frames[rte].focus();

It puts the cursor at the top of the iframe window.  I want the cursor a the very end.  How can I have it focus at the very bottom of the iframe window?

Thanks!

Hi hank

You could do this by setting the onfocus event of the iframe but that would mean that every time it got the focus it would jump to the end, probably no use to you!

Instead you could try adding an extra line where you call the focus

window.frames[rte].focus();
window.frames[rte].scrollTo(0,10000000);

The only way i can think is to use a really really big number which is in pixels so that the page always scrolls to the bottom.

I created an example page which might help explain it. You will need to change the src of the iframe to a page you have there.

<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>

<iframe id="frmName" name="frmName" src="framechild.html"></iframe>

<input name="" type="button" onClick="window.frames['frmName'].focus();window.frames['frmName'].scrollTo(0,10000000)">
</body>
</html>



Cheers
