I really shame on for this question but i could not understand why this is not working

when i delete the  :     scr += "parent.document.getElementById('Image1A').src = 'http://files.xxx.com/image.aspx?img=" + res + "&w=250&h=250';"
line ,it is working perfectly for A1 element when i use this code in an other page working again the only difference is i use this code in a master page's content page 's iframe
and this code is working on iframe and controlling an item from content's page inside master page
i think the problem is master page for only the finding images with javascript but why?
Dim item As New FileAsyncronUploader
        res = item.yukle(FileUpload1)
        Dim scr = "<script>"
        scr += "parent.document.getElementById('Image1A').src = 'http://files.xxx.com/image.aspx?img=" + res + "&w=250&h=250';"
        scr += "parent.document.getElementById('A1').style.visibility  = 'visible';"
        scr += "</script>"
        Response.Write(scr)

what is the error?

Server or client side?

What does the javascript look like in the view-source?

when i delete this line :
  scr += "parent.document.getElementById('Image1A').src = 'http://files.xxx.com/image.aspx?img=" + res + "&w=250&h=250';"
     
there is no problem or when i add this line :
  scr += "alert(' res ');"

there is no problem again

when i copy whole the page without any changing into a normal page instead of masterpage's content there is no problem again       the problem is js could not find the image1a when i use this code inside a master page i think master page changing the id's of element in html side because the problem is couldnot finding server side element on master page how could this resolve ?

Yes

   scr += "parent.document.getElementById('<%= Image1A.ClientID %>').src = 'http://files.xxx.com/image.aspx?img=" + res + "&w=250&h=250';"
  scr += "parent.document.getElementById('<%= A1.ClientID %>').style.visibility  = 'visible';"
     

refer this for a nicer looking solution

but the problem is image1a in not on this page


  scr += "parent.document.getElementById('<%= Image1A.ClientID %>').src = 'http://files.xxx.com/image.aspx?img=" + res + "&w=250&h=250';"
 scr += "parent.document.getElementById('<%= A1.ClientID %>').style.visibility  = 'visible';"

this code workin in iframe so image1a will not be a known type on this code's page

You are making your life complicated...

try this in the parent

<script>
function getObjectByClientId(id) {
  var tags = document.getElementsByTagName('*');
  for (var i=0, n=tags.length;i<n;i++) {
    if (tags[i].id.indexOf("_"+id)!=-1) {
      return tags[i];
    }
  }
}
</script>
 
and have
 
scr += "parent.getObjectByClientId('Image1a').src = 'http://files.xxx.com/image.aspx?img=" + res + "&w=250&h=250';"
scr += "parent.getObjectByClientId('A1').style.visibility  = 'visible';"
 
or save the client ids in variables in the parent:
var image1a = '<%= Image1A.ClientID %>'
var div1a = '<%= A1.ClientID %>'
 
 
scr += "parent.document.getElementById(parent.image1a).src = 'http://files.xxx.com/image.aspx?img=" + res + "&w=250&h=250';"
scr += "parent.document.getElementById(parent.div1a).style.visibility  = 'visible';"

That seems like an answer but i could not understand this :

<script>
function getObjectByClientId(id) {
  var tags = document.getElementsByTagName('*');
  for (var i=0, n=tags.length;i<n;i++) {
    if (tags[i].id.indexOf("_"+id)!=-1) {
      return tags[i];
    }
  }
}
</script>


this function is returning tag of parent page's called id's tag in parant page but not changing the id to Image1a and this code is working in iframe so there won't be a connection beetwen items


scr += "parent.getObjectByClientId('Image1a').src = 'http://files.xxx.com/image.aspx?img=" + res + "&w=250&h=250';"
scr += "parent.getObjectByClientId('A1').style.visibility  = 'visible';"
 
but i will try this 2 hours later this

var image1a = '<%= Image1A.ClientID %>'
var div1a = '<%= A1.ClientID %>'
 
 
scr += "parent.document.getElementById(parent.image1a).src = 'http://files.xxx.com/image.aspx?img=" + res + "&w=250&h=250';"
scr += "parent.document.getElementById(parent.div1a).style.visibility  = 'visible';"

this could be answer but i am not sure in asp.net  '<%= A1.ClientID %>' this will work because <% is classical asp tag.

thanks i will tell the result i increase the point to 150 for this attention
