Hello,

I have a main window which holds the TabStrip. Within this window I have an IFRAME. How can I access the TabStrip object from within the page of the IFRAME.

Generally, to access an object in the parent I would do something like

window.parent.document.getElementById(...)

I want to get the ClientID of the TabStrip from the IFRAME so that I can enable disable tabs based on user selection from within the IFRAME page.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks
Bala

Hello BALA MUKUND,

You can use the following code:

var tabStrip = $get("frame1").contentWindow.$find("RadTabStrip1");

where "frame1" is the ID of your iframe and "RadTabStrip1" is the tabstrip's id.

I hope this helps,

Hello,

The code snippet you have provided is has functions such as

$get
$find

Maybe I am a little off here - I have never used them in JavaScript and I do get errors when I use them. Am I missing something?

Thanks

Hello BALA MUKUND,

Are you using RadTabStrip for ASP.NET and not the AJAX version?

In case this is true, you can use the following code:

document.getElementById("frame1").contentWindow.RadTabStrip1;

where "frame1" is the ID of your iframe and RadTabStrip1 is the tabstrip's id.

Best wishes,
Simon

Thanks! I don't use Rad Controls for AJAX. I guess that is why I was a little confused.

Your answer helps clarify that. I was able to work this.

Thanks once again.
