I am looking for a script to make an iframe autosize (height-wise) to the content that it contains. I can't seem to find this. Also, the iframe needs to resize upon *content load; not merely when the parent page is loaded.

If anyone could help me, this would be GREATLY appreciated!

I haven't used javascript in ages so I don't know how to write the code, but I've got an idea of how it might be done.

To the page you're loading into the iframe add a onload function. Have the onload function calculate the page's height and then send it to a function in the parent window that resizes the iframe.

The question was also posted either here or on the GN a while ago. So if you do a search you should be able to find some code examples for what I said.

That sounds like a good idea, and I know how to calculate a pages scroll height, but I can't seem to send that information to the parent window. I know this can be done - it's just a matter of finding out how. BTW - I did do a search for the autosizing iframe, but the results didn't contain what I was looking for; they were referring to the scripting for a virtual desktop in DHTML. Thanks though!
