Hi everyone,

I know how detect if a page is loaded into frames.
But I need to be able to detect if it loaded into an iframe, and if it is, I want it to break frames.

I DO NOT want it to break out of normal frames, only if it is loaded into an iframe.

Thank You For Your Help!

And I will give 50,000 Hits to anyones site that delivers a solution. @ AutoHitsNow.com

I'm not claiming this is the correct solution but

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript" TYPE="text/JavaScript">
function handleError() {

window.onerror = handleError;
if (window.parent.frames.length>0) {
if (window.parent.document.body.innerHTML) {
//do nothing

Basically the script breaks out of an IFRAME if the the parent document is not under the same domain as the captured document.

That is, the script is trying to read the innerHTML of parent doc. It can't do this if it's under a different domain- an Access Denied Error is fired. The onError event deals with this and breaks the child doc out of the iframe.

I'll sticky you my details.

Oh that wont work, its breaking frames on traffic exchanges.

I need it to just break out of and iframe, if in an iframe, no matter what the url is.

See, its breaking frames when loaded from another url in a normal frame. That wont work it will disrupt other traffic exchanges.

I just need it to detect if the page is loaded into an iframe, then break no matter what the url is.

I never claimed it was the right solution! Just hoped the script might go someway in helping you resolve.

So you are saying that certain domains + your domain can capture the page in a FRAMESET, and thats OK.

But if certain domains and/or others capture the page in an IFRAME than breakout.
