javascript - submit an iframe form

i have been trying

<iframe id="fid" name="fname" src=""></iframe>

function submitForm(){



<input type="submit" value="try" name="button"

and it will not do a thing, I have also tried several other ways to do this - and other people say it works for them, but not for me. I tried both IE and firefox.

Any reasonable browser shouldn't give you access to the iframe. That's probably your problem. They do this to prevent cross site scripting attacks. Check out Wikipedia to find out why allowing access is bad.

Note: I just checked MS's docs, and they say they allow it as long as it's in the same domain. Since I'm guessing you don't work for google, the above applies.
