Setting the src of IFRAME.

I have a WebForm with an IFRAME. I need to be able to set the src of the IFRAME dynamically. Since there is no standard IFRAME control in asp.net I tried to set the src of the IFRAME by calling a procedure in the code behind page:

html part:

<iframe id="ifCarFrame" name="ifCarFrame" src="<%# getCarFormAddress()%>">
code behind part:

public string getCarFormAddress()
     //Builds the address for the ChatterBox
     string carFormAddress;

     carFormAddress = "carform.aspx";
     return carFormAddress;

The problem is that it is sending a blank to the WebForm.

Does anyone know how to send a string to the src in an IFRAME html-control?

Thanks for your help,

<iframe id="ifCarFrame" name="ifCarFrame" src="" runat="server">

Add the following to the members list in the code behind:

          protected HtmlGenericControl ifCarFrame;

You can set the src from code as follows:

          private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
               ifCarFrame.Attributes["src"] = "newpage.aspx";
               // Put user code to initialize the page here
