Is there anyway to unload a page that has been loaded inside an iframe? I do not want to change the iframe src to a blank page if possible. I am basically looking for something that will do something like this
$('#frameID').attr("src",""); except that code does not seem to clear the previously loaded page.
Is there a
"unload" function that I can call which will reset the iframe so that it does not have any content loaded inside?
The other solutions use
innerHTML, which won’t always work in XHTML. They also only clear
document.body (anything in the
<head> is still present). Here is a solution that uses the DOM:
var frame = document.getElementById("myFrame"), frameDoc = frame.contentDocument || frame.contentWindow.document; frameDoc.removeChild(frameDoc.documentElement);
This solution uses
var frame = document.getElementById("myFrame"), frameDoc = frame.contentDocument || frame.contentWindow.document; frameDoc.documentElement.innerHTML = "";
