Hi I am trying to load an external page into an iFrame from a flash command.

It loads a page to start and should load additional pages from a flash button.  For some reason it just opens a new page when I click on the button.

Herewith the current HTML code:
<iframe name="load" id="load" SRC="highlights.html" scrolling="no" height="250" width="980" align="middle" frameborder="0"> </iframe>

Flash Code:
btnprof.onPress = function(){
     getURL("profbothma.html", load);
}

Test page url:
http://www.shayamanzi.com/newweb/main.php

I really want this to work because every index section of the site loads additional content from a flash button command.

you would need quotes around "load":

getURL("profbothma.html", "load")

Hi Roonaan

I added the quotes nothing changed still opening in a new page instead of the iframe?

This comment had sort of the same problem then what I have, but I am not sure haow to add the code to apply to my situation:

add the below code to the html document in the head section:

<script>
function getList(whatPage)
{
      var theFrame = document.getElementById("load");     // load being the ID of the Iframe
      theFrame.src = whatPage;
}
</script>



and the flash code will become :

btnprof.onPress = function(){
getURL("javascript:getList('profbothma.html');");
}

Ok I feel like a real idiot, both your solutions work, I was testing my outcome locally and was not aware that the files requires server side process to work. I loaded them up and it is working!

Thanks allot guys
