Hello Experts,
I have a select box like below
<select name="disFruits" id="disFruits" style="width: 156px;">
<option>&raquo;Select&laquo;</option>
<option value="apples.html">Apples</option>
<option value="grapes.html">Grapes</option>
<option value="oranges.html">Oranges</option>
</select>

Open in new window


Now right below it I have declared an Iframe like
<iframe id="frameFruits">

</iframe>

Open in new window


Now in each of the pages in the select box options there is an DIV tag which has some images in it 3 to be excat.

What I am trying to do it when someone selects an option I want to display the image from that page in the Iframe. below is the code for the div tag

<div id="imgFruit" align="center">
<img id="Img1" src="/images/&mvt:category_image1;.jpg" />

<img id="Img2" src="/images/&mvt:category_image2;.jpg" />

<img id="Img3" src="/images/&mvt:category_image;3.jpg" />

</div>

Open in new window

I was wondering if i can use Jquery to achieve this
Thanks and appreciate it

<iframe id="frameFruits" src="Images.aspx">No Iframe Support</iframe>

and div is coming from Images.aspx?

oops sorry i am not coding in asp.net. its just plain html and yes the src for the iframe should be what the url is in the select option and the DIV is coming from those url, what I mean is there is a DIV in apples.html, oranges.html and so on

do you want this?
<select name="disFruits" id="disFruits" style="width: 156px;" onChange="setSrc(this.value)">
<option>&raquo;Select&laquo;</option>
<option value="apples.html">Apples</option>
<option value="grapes.html">Grapes</option>
<option value="oranges.html">Oranges</option>
</select> 

<iframe id="frameFruits" src="">No IFrame Support</iframe> 

<script type="text/javascript">
function setSrc(s){alert(s);
  document.getElementById("frameFruits").src=s;
}
</script>

Thanks for replying. What I am trying to display inside the Iframe is the DIV tag called imgFruit along with its content when one of the options is selected. SORRY I apologize if I didnt explain clearly.

So say when Apples are selected, the Iframe should display the <div> imgFruits from apples.html not the whole apples.html page

Hope i am explaining this correctly

Thanks

I am giving you code for both Iframe & div

it will load only div part into iFrame & div

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Example</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
</head>
<body>

<select name="disFruits" id="disFruits" style="width: 156px;" onChange="setSrc(this.value)">
<option>&raquo;Select&laquo;</option>
<option value="apples.html">Apples</option>
<option value="grapes.html">Grapes</option>
<option value="oranges.html">Oranges</option>
</select> 

<iframe id="frameFruits" src=""></iframe> 

<div id=fruits style="border:1px solid silver"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">
function setSrc(s){alert(s);
	$("#fruits").load(s + " #imgFruit");
	$("#frameFruits").load(s + " #imgFruit");
}
</script>

</body>
</html>

<div id="imgFruit" align="center">
<img id="Img1" src="/images/category_image1.jpg" />

<img id="Img2" src="/images/category_image2.jpg" />

I put both div & iFrame solution

you can remove

<iframe id="frameFruits" src=""></iframe>

and

$("#frameFruits").load(s + " #imgFruit");

as long as css files are on the page, your div should look ok...

it is working fine with me using iFrame too, but I guess div is a better solution for you too..
