How to get the content of an iframe with JavaScript:

  • First, define your iframe in the <body> part of your site:

<iframe src="" id="ifr" name="ifr" height="0" width="0"></iframe>
  • Then use this script to get the content of this iframe:
<script type="text/javascript">
function get_iframe(ifr_id) {
 var myIFrame = document.getElementById(ifr_id);
 var content = myIFrame.contentWindow.document.body.innerHTML;
  • You can use the variable content in every way you like :-)
