I have been searching all over forums for a fix to target an iframe from a drop down menu with Javascript. Dreamweaver creates it some script for you but you can only target parent window with the version that I have. Below is working in firefox and Ie.

<script type="text/JavaScript">

function jumpMenu(targ,selObj,restore)
var url = selObj.options[selObj.selectedIndex].value;
selObj.options[selObj.selectedIndex].value +"'");
var iframe = document.getElementById('frame1');
iframe.src = url;

if (restore) selObj.selectedIndex=0;



<form name="form1" id="form1">
<select name="menu1" onChange="jumpMenu('parent',this,0)">
<option value="http://www.pinnaclepayment.com">URL 1</option>
<option value="http://www.google.com">URL 2</option>
<iframe id="frame1" src="" height="300" width="300"></iframe>
