iframe access permissions

Dear Experts,

I am trying to load a web page like http://irctc.co.in in my html page by using iframe as shown in attachment.

Question:

1) I want to load textbox present in iframe loaded page with my custome value.
I am planning to enter 'User Name' & 'Password' textbox fields with my values and click the Submit button.

So let me know how i can achieve this either by jQuery, Javascripts or C# code behind.

2) Also I want to know how to save a webpage in my server and let me know if it can help by any ways for above issue.

Thanks in advance !

Cheers,

Shah

You can not access the html in the iframe anymore than you could if it was not in an iframe.

If what you are trying to do is submit data to the form directly, you can view the code of the form and try and submit the data to the url in the action.

In this case, it looks like the url is https://www.irctc.co.in/cgi-bin/bv60.dll/irctc/services/login.do.  It is very possible they have code to prevent you from doing this.
<form method="post" action="https://www.irctc.co.in/cgi-bin/bv60.dll/irctc/services/login.do" name="LoginForm" autocomplete="off" style="margin:0; padding:0;" onsubmit="document.getElementById('button').disabled=true;">
  <input type="hidden" name="screen" value="home">
  <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="center">
  <tbody><tr>
    <td>
	<table width="96%" style="margin-top:10px; border-bottom:1px solid #ccc" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3" align="center" class="txt1">

  <tbody><tr>
    <td width="40%">Username</td>
    <td width="1%">:</td>
    <td width="59%"><input type="text" name="userName" class="txtfld" autocomplete="off" size="12"></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Password</td>
    <td>:</td>
    <td><input type="password" name="password" class="txtfld" autocomplete="off" size="12"></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td colspan="3" height="1"></td>
  </tr>

  <tr id="hide_home">
    <td colspan="3" align="right">
	<input type="submit" name="button" id="button" class="buttonSubmit" value="Login" onclick="return validate();">	</td>
  </tr>


<tr>
<td align="right" colspan="3">

You can also search to see if there is an API to do what you want.  I found, http://pnrapi.alagu.net/ but it is not official.  

Good luck.

Okay.

However, I found another way to achieve this instead of using iframe & it has worked without using any external API.
