I wonder if it is possible to embed aplications on your server into a web page. That would be very handy. I also have another question that is a little easier to answer probably. How do you change the domain of an iframe using a hyperlink, hover button, or text box? I know that you can do it but I just can't remember how

I'm not sure of the context in which you are speaking; For instance, you can't embed an executable into a web page that would in turn run on the client computer; That would represent a huge security risk. You can run Java Applets and Flash based applications, but they are limited in what they can do (again, a huge security concern). There are web-based applications in which the web browser serves as an interface to the application on the server.

Not sure if I am clarifying, or further confusing you?

actually i tested to see if what i wanted would work and it would not work (at least in html or javascript) but my second question is how do you use a hyperlink to change the url of a targeted iframe

i tried:
<p><a href="http://www.url.com target="taco"><p>click me!</a>
<iframe src="http://www.url.com target="taco">

instead of opening the page in the targeted iframe it opens a new window

Not meaning to be rude or anything, but which problem specifically are you referring to? I answered your first question, but you didn't really clarify if I had even understood your question. The second question could have been answered about five minutes after you posted it by looking up "<href target", so I have to assume that you already found that on your own.

well, you would think so but the page didn't open in my iframe instead it opened in another internet explorer on the computer. I'm not sure what it looks like i'm trying to do so i'll try saying it better. I'm trying to get a hyperlink that when clicked in internet explorer changes the source of the already open iframe below it. For example if i had google in my iframe and i wanted to change that same iframe to ask.com i would click the link and it would change the address in the iframe

The iframe in which you are trying to open your link has to have a name associated with it before you can target it. If the code you listed above is how you have it, it is wrong. IFrame does not take target as a parameter.

Are you telling me that in over a month you have not even once had the notion to look up the <iframe> code tags? You would have solved this problem weeks ago with a 5 minute search....

Search the page for the phrase "Specifies the name of the frame for the purpose of linking and targeting". :thumbsup:

Hello holytoaster4,

Additionally: I don't know if this particular cross-browser compatibility issue still exists, but to be safe, you probably want to specify both the NAME and ID values of the IFRAME to be the same value (for cross-browser compatibility):

(From a Google search of "html target link to open in iframe"):

"Setting links to open in an IFRAME":

http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum21/7483.htm


(From a Google search of "iframe name id browser compatibility"):

"Addressing an IFRAME":

Don't be discouraged from asking questions. You might have been helped much quicker if you had mentioned that maybe you were having trouble figuring out the correct term to use in the search engine. When it comes to programming, everything you can possibly want to know is on the 'net somewhere, and good programmers learn how to locate that information so they don't get stuck.
