iFrame src doesn't update

Hello,

I am opening the following HTML page from a parent window:



If window.opener.closed is false then the script runs as expected however if window.opener.closed is true it doesn't change the src attribute of the iFrame and doesn't close the window. Any idea why?

.src not .location

.location is also valid.
Anyway have already tried .src and I get the same behaviour.
What's more important the self.close doesn't haoppen either in this case.
Could this be because I'm opening this window from a parent one although shouldn't matter in this case AFAIK.

If it doesn't reach that point because of an error, the rest of the function will not execute. What have you done to check for JavaScript errors?

I've activated javascript error reporting on the browser and it reports nothing.
This code is pretty straight forward so I guess anyone can just try himself.

Are your test pages really in another domain?

Hi Eric,

What do you meant by "test pages".
If you ask about the parent and the child then they both reside in the same application and therefore in the same domain.
I'm opening this child page using relative address.
