Hello

I believe the title says it all.
From the documentation I know that autoSize doesn't work with navigateUrl from other domains.
But i am adressing another webserver in the same domain, and autoSize still doesn't work.
However, with a page from the running application in the navigateUrl it works.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hello Bjorn,

Can you access the problematic page via JavaScript or does it throw an error that the access is denied? For example, when you try calling a function from the same page when loaded in an iframe:
<iframe src="http://otherserver/otherPage.aspx" id="testFrame" />

$get("testFrame").contentWindow.someTestFunctionDeclaredInThePage();

If this throws an error then the JavaScript cross-site scripting policy is in effect in your case and autosizing cannot work as it cannot access the content page.

You can try adding a simple script at the beginning of each page that will unify the domains to document.domain = "myLastDomain.com"; (i.e. remove the subdomains if they are present).

More information about cross-domain scripting and configuring domains is available here: http://madskristensen.net/post/Iframe-cross-domain-JavaScript-calls.aspx.

Hello Marin

Thanks for the answer. I have already tried with an iframe, and get "Access is denied", so the issue is obviously cross-domain scripting.
I hope your tip on unifying the domains will work. Nice trick. I will try it out and post the result back here.


Regards
Bjorn
