Using IFRAMES and HTML button links.

When you use the embed IFRAME HTML for a web portal, but your portal uses html buttons to navaigate thorugh - how do you stop the process of the application from leaving the IFRAME when you get to one of these steps?

Your buttons and links should not take the user out of the iframe unless you have the target attribute set on the URL. Don't use the target attribute and you should be fine

What if I want an actual button instead of a text link? Here is what i am using now to create a button to wallk a client through an application on our website.

Try removing the "parent." in your onlick code. That should do it. It should be:
