Hi all...
I am developing a small appication where i want to display website page
in an iframe. My JSP contains a text field (where i type URL), a button(on clickking button the URL of the text field is to be passed to iframe as source) and an iframe (to display the page at specified URL).
I have couple of doubts..
1. How should i use the same iframe to display further pages if i click on any link of the current displayed page ? (i tried this, but every time the next page wont get open inside the iframe and it appears as a normal web page.) Are there some different ways ?
2. Can i read the page data that is displayed in iframe if i click some other button on my JSP say "Extract" ?
I am using struts 1.1 for my application.

Can some one have the solution ??
Thanks in advance...
