    How can I load an iframe with Javascript?

    I want to load an iframe with Javascript after my HTML finishes loading, but I also want people without Javascript to be able to view it. How can I do that?

    Maybe I can create the iframe with a src, and remove the src with Javascript before the iframe loads. Then load the iframe after the page loads. How do I do that?

    What I might suggest is enclosing the HTML iframe within a pair of <noscript> tags. If javascript is not enabled on the user's browser, this should be visible.

    And as for your javascript, you should have something like:

    window.onload = function(){
        var x =document.createElement('iframe');
        x.scr = 'whatever.png';
    And no, I don't know if this will work or not.

    // SORRY--"whatever.png" should be an url in the suggested code above.
    Stupid is as stupid does.

    I never thought of <noscript>. Thanks, I will try that and see if it works!
