hi there!in this page that i'm bulding there is an iframe with some external content. external means that is from another server. i cannot modify or temper that content in any way, but i would like to scroll to a certain position from my parent page inside that iframe that i have. :) eg.:

<body onLoad="iframe_name.scrollTo(10,700)">...<iframe name="iframe_name" id="iframe_name" title="iframe_name" src="http://www.xxx.ro/xxx.php" ></iframe>....

this is not working... :) any ideeas? :)

try this
<body onLoad="document.frames['iframe_name'].scrollTo(10,700)">...<iframe name="iframe_name" id="iframe_name" title="iframe_name" src="http://www.xxx.ro/xxx.php" ></iframe>

thx for the swift response

<body onLoad="document.frames['iframe_name'].scrollTo(10,700)">...<iframe name="iframe_name" id="iframe_name" title="iframe_name" src="http://www.xxx.ro/xxx.php" ></iframe>

it gives an error: "Access is denied."

it is quite frustrating since it shouldn't be this hard...also tried:[code]document.frames['convertorvalutar'].contents.scrollBy(10,700)

well, i'm not trying to crack or hack IE or any other browser, but the easyest sollution i've come up with is an iframe that opens a local page which eventualy opens the desired external page, also in an iframe... :) the first iframe has any height, while the 2nd iframe is taller, and so i manage to scroll to any desired position. :) it is no big deal... quite childish actually, but it does the job and that's just what i'm looking for :)hope i make any sense...
