Hello,

I am new to IE7 and am a bit boggled by the fact that this simple page doesn't work:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>Novell GroupWise</title>
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="900">
<base href="http://mail.parametrix.com/" target="_self">
</head>
<body style="margin: 0; padding: 0">
<div style="text-align: center; font-family: Arial,Verdana,sans-serif; color: white; background-color: red">
<b>The page below will auto-refresh every 15 minutes:</b>
</div>
<iframe name="main" src="http://mail.parametrix.com/servlet/webacc" width="100%" height="100%"
marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="1" scrolling="auto"></iframe>
</body>
</html>

In the browser window, the iframe is completely blank. Only the top div shows on the page. It works perfectly in IE6. Any ideas

Thanks

IFrames don't work in IE7 by default. You have to go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Security Tab -> Custom Level for security zone. Scroll down about 75%, you should find the 'Launching programs and files in an IFrame' option, select 'Enable'. This should allow Iframes to show up. This setting is enabled by default in IE6 but not in 7.

I'm afraid you're mistaken here; IE7 certainly does allow IFRAMES by default. The setting you're referring to has to do with running executable files from Explorer windows in IFrames, and it's unrelated to whether or not HTML IFRAMES appear.

This page looks fine to me in IE7, and I see the Novell login screen.

You might try watching your traffic in Fiddler (see http://www.fiddlertool.com) to see if there's a network problem in your environment.

There is definately something wrong with the latest IE 7. We have a customer running Windows XP and is using Internet Explorer version 7.0.5730.11

Her iframe HTML doesn't load at. The tag to load it isn't there when viewing the page source. Slightly earlier versions of IE 7 work just fine. I was unable to figure out what security setting was causing the problem.

The exact link to the problem page is http://www.stateparklittleleague.org/1138485688734.html if you want to see for yourself.

The problem is actually caused by the "width" attribute on the <iframe> tag being set to "100%". IE7 does not seem to support this, just try changing the attribute to a fixed number and I'm sure you'll find it works.

I've tried setting the width to 100% via a style attribute, but this doesn't seem to work in IE7 either.

Hope that helps.

Hi All,

I am also having the same problem. Iframes are not working fine in IE7+ and ite seems working fine in all other browsers. I have specified width and height attributes in numbers , not in percentage.The error message I am getting is "Not Found the requested object does not exist on this server.The link you followed is either outdated, inaccurate or the server has been instructed not to let you have it. Please suggest me how to overcome this issue.Thanks in advance.

I can verify that since the last Internet Explorer 6.x patch that the width=100% also causes the iframe content to vanish in IE 6.0.2900.2180. Changing it to width="600" brought it back.

The solution is very simple... Stop using WIDTH attribute!

I've resolved the same problem with the STYLE attribute:

<IFRAME SRC='gnagna.htm' STYLE='width:100%;'></IFRAME>
