Is it possible to scroll a document that is contained within an iframe, from outside of that iframe?!
Short answer... No!
As an additional test of styles (IE6 vs FF) - the IFRAME that follows has the following styles set. Works as expected in FF, not in IE6
/*overflow:hidden;*/ /* Doesn't work in IE6 */ overflow-x:hidden; /* Ignored by IE6 */ overflow-y:scroll; /* Strange bug in IE6, extra right margin */
The contents of the above IFRAME should be copied into the DIV below, by a call in the window.onload event of the actual document within the IFRAME.
Is it possible to grab the contents of an IFRAME ...?
To centre the contents of an IFRAME, you obviously have to centre the document that is contained within that IFRAME. To centre the IFRAME itself... surround the IFRAME in a DIV and set
text-align:center; on that DIV! Works in FF, IE6 and Opera 8. This does, however, go against the grain, since I would have thought FF would have accepted
margin:0 auto; but the does nothing!
align="center" on the IFRAME itself, only centres it in IE6, not FF or Opera8.
