Getting my iFrame+reload-button to JavaScript?

Posted on 2009-03-31

Hey! I have on my homepage several iFrames right now, and above each iFrame is an "reload"-button for that frame.

<INPUT TYPE="image" src="refresh.jpg" onClick="frame1.location.reload(true)">  <b>Breakfast:</b><br><br>
<iframe  src="frame1.php" name="frame1" frameborder="0" width="370" height="95" scrolling="no">Your browser doesn't support iFrames.</iframe>

But there is some problems with that. The reload-button asks this "[To display this page, Firefox must send information that will repeat any action (such as a search or order confirmation) that was performed earlier?]" when trying to reload my php when an user has changed it. It should still be able to reload properply without asking that.
And second of all, my iFrames can't autoresize depending on its content.
So I thought about getting those two things over to a JavaScript.

I have looked at http://www.prototypejs.org/ . Is that what should be used to do it? Seems so huge for a simple script :-( How would I go about doing it, and where should I start? I have never done any Javascript before in my life. Thanks

To stop the browser from alerting, you need to use method="get" in your forms instead of method="post"

And resizing an iframe based on content is not simple.

However prototype is not needed

Thanks guys, I will try those two suggestions. Hopefully I won't even have to make the switch to AJAX prototype then :-)

Yeah sorry just saw that :D

But it works now, with _GET
I couldn't get iFrame resizing to work :( but that isn't that important either. Thanks for the help!

So the "B" grade is due to you not being able to implement any of the 1000 scripts I linked to?
Oh well ;)

I have tried alot of implenting those auto-resize the last couple days, but none of them have worked for me sadly, but maybe I should just try some more :-)
But I do appreciate your tip about the _GET, thank you for that :-) Have a nice day, good sir
