Hi, i am using an iframe but i am not being able to set its bgcolor other than white.. I am using the following code:

<iframe id="dsd" ALLOWTRANSPARENCY="true" bgcolor="red" src="page1.htm" width=541 height=200>
</iframe>

I dont want to modify it in the src file's body, coz it is used in another page.. Can't I set it from the parent page as listed above?

Hi zahir79b,

This works in IE and FF, I haven't tested with other browsers:

<iframe id="dsd" src="page1.htm" onload="window.frames[0].document.body.style.backgroundColor='red'";>
</iframe>


Hope this helps,
Neal.
