Hello,
I have an Iframe in my page. What i want to do with that iframe is post a url on another webserver, but only a portion of that page information. I would not like to show anything else. How can I tell the opening url to go to that location x y on that page?

I don't think it's possible to do what you are asking.

Look at it like this.... is there anything you can add to a url when typed into a browser address bar that will open the targeted page and only display a specific portion of that page?? The answer (as far as I know) is NO!  not unless the tageted page is going to handle what is displayed based on the passed in query string.

Essentially the iFrame is just opening another page within the current page. If the page you are loading into you iframe is expecting querystring values and then has some kind of logic to modify what is rendered then you may be able to simulate this????

you could use the "scrollIntoView" method but that only aligns the object to either the absolute top or bottom of the object (ot is best effort to get close to top or bottom).....that's probably not gonna help you much.

I take it you don't own the page you are targeting into the iframe? if you do, you could (as I suggested) add some logic to it to accept a querystring and then only display a cut down version of that page that is the specific part of the page that you want. But there's nothing that you can do to the iFrame itself that would target a specific part of the page it contains
