Hello I need to get the iframes to load a page + letters from a text field:fart:


Here is an example site:
Code:
Put you youtube username here and the box below will show your youtube site and facebooksite.


{here is a text field)


<input ???> Sumbit
<br>
<br>

<iframe type="hidden" width="100%" lenght="100%" src= http://www.youtube.com/user/ + text field>

<iframe type="hidden" width="100%" lenght="100%" src= http://www.facebook.com/ + text field>
I do not know if it works with facebook but this was just an example.

I need help to the src= http://www.youtube.com/user/ + text field> (look in the first iframe) To load the youtube.com + the letters in the text field. It could be:

http://www.youtube.com/user/bombmakingak and
http://www.facebook.com/bombmaking.ak (this is examples)

You need to be more specific. What language do you want to use? PHP, ASP, Javascript, etc.
Server side languages like PHP and ASP may not be the best because they will reload the page.
Javascript will allow you to make changes without reloading the page, which might be what you are looking for. Try http://www.w3schools.com for tutorials on these languages.

Well if you like javascript, the task you want can easily be accomplished with that language. Just read the tutorials and you'll be able to do it.

ok, well i'm only 14. A little javascript that does something like that looks like this:

PHP:
<form>
<input type="text"  id="yourtextfield"/>
<input type="button" onclick="submit();"/>
</form>
<iframe id="youriframe"></iframe>
<script type="text/javascript">
function submit(){


document.getElementById("youriframe").src="http://www.youtube.com/"+document.getElementById("yourtextfield").text;


}
</script>
This may look a bit complicated but I'll be happy to explain anything you don't understand.

HTML:
<html>
<head>
<title>iFrame Test</title>

<style type="text/css">

 #youriframe { height: 400px ; width: 500px; }

</style>

<script type="text/javascript">

function go_get(){
  var base_url = 'http://forums.x10hosting.com/members/' ;
  var usr_name = document.getElementById("yourtextfield").value ;
  var target_url = base_url + usr_name + ".html" ;
  var ifr = document.getElementById( "youriframe" ) ;
  ifr.src = target_url ;
 return false ;
}

</script> 

</head>

<body>

<form onsubmit= ="go_get(); return false;" >
<input type="text"  id="yourtextfield"/><br/>
<input type="submit" value="Get member page" />
</form>
<iframe id="youriframe" ></iframe>

</body>
</html>

Type in a x10 forum name and see their member page (doesn't work with names with special characters, etc)
