Yup, however you might wanna make sure and wait for another member to confirm this as I am not completely sure. Better yet, why don't you e-mail the iContact guys because they can answer your iContact question better...
Posting a link to the iContact site would be helpful, if you could..
Personally, I've never been able to make an iframe transparent in the I.E. browser..
Should work. it will be transparent from 5.0 or 5.5 and up. can't remember the version of IE it applies to...
I've done it, the page being iframed in can't have a background image or a background color, and you gotta have allowtransparency=true in the iframe tag, I know coothead you may already know this but I have done it..
Hi there scoutt and Aero,.
Allowtransparency="yes" or allowtransparency="true".
Have never worked for me using.
Suggest to inquirers that they, instead, style the iframe.
Contents. I would love to see transparency by any method.
Work. Let me see your coding when you have achieved it,.
So that I may incorporate it into my.
And then sp.html is.
Notice the code is sp.html. I guess by default the page is not transparent in IE as it is in other browsers. for reference.
Hi there scoutt,.
Thanks for that..
So to achieve transparency in I.E. requires a blank.
Document in the src. That never occured to me.....
Senility must be kicking in.
Unfortunately, of course, we are still left with the.
Problem of validation or should I say lack of it.
Haven't been able to find one DOCTYPE that will.
As an attribute..
Wouldn't life be sweet with I.E. compliance..
"veni, vidi, validatio.".
~ I came, I saw, I validated..
You're welcome Coot,.
Nah, the blank src in the iframe was for simplicity. you can have anything in it as long as you specify the transparent color in the body. and being that "allowtransparency" is IE only it will never validate..
Yup, it sure would be nice...
U dont need to define the background of the page being iframed as transparent as long as there is an src there I believe here take a look at.
, there is a div that has a background in it that is centered with norepeat, it's the tyson staffing image, then the page being iframed is.
There is no background or background image being defined in the css but scott is right it wont validate so I guess defining the background as transparent would be the way to go to validate it..
Without defining the background as transparent I could not get IE to do it either..
On that page you show it is not hard to do a transparent white if the background is all ready white.
There css is all invalid...
Hmm would appear that f9f9f9 is a slight shade of white but I dont see any problems in the css, other than the scrollbar properties that are IE only..
It's not as they forgot the # in front of it..
And they set both pages to that color..
Its a different css file for the 2nd page and there is no background color defined..
So far you are not proving anything. do this. make a file, call it waht ever. add this to it..
Than in another file add this and call it sp.html..
IE will not show the background as red or blue, it will be white...
My apologies scott, I guess because the color was so close to white it looked transparent when in actuality it was a white background..
No problem. it looked good to start until you dug deeper..
And who is scott???..
Thanks for the note. So what your saying is I don't need to put 'allowtransparency' in the code because it already is by default. If you have a look at the iContact site in question, in firefox you'll see the block colour which it seems to be 'defaulting' to, whereas in IE allow transparency in the code sorts it. So what I don't really understand is how firefox can be transparent by default if it is being filled with a block colour. Could you maybe explain it to me more please..
Any help is great while I try and plough on to fix it!!..
Uhhh, ummmm, what iframe? there is not one in that page you just linked to..
And you have a few things wrong in that code too. I see a href="" in an image tag. you can't do that..
I actually found it after reloading the page many times to see the flash menu. very strange iContact site as it doesn't always work for me..
I don't believe there is a color as.
That is turning it blue. use this instead.
Very different. plus you have a lot of coding and style sheet errors. you cannot have <p> in yor style sheet. plus you have an extra iframe in your iframe code..
I am really surprised mozilla runs it at all...
Thanks for getting back to me, but I have actually already sorted it now so it's fine..
I don't see any change, but you may not have uploaded the changes either...
Hi Scoutt the iContact site has not yet been uploaded!!..
Back again now I have fixed one problem I get another. Don't know whether you have experience with macs but the iContact site we have been discussing is not showing the background image which also encorporates the iframe which is working, do you have any idea of what could be causing this..
