Hi all,

I need to get values in a query string. I call a page, showcase.php?cat=1&subcat=2 let's say. Well, in showcase.php, I have an iframe which needs these vars too. What's the best way to do this? I think I could put them again in the src file call on teh iframe tag, this just occurred to me, but I'd like another way if possible. Thanks.

can you not place them in the url that specifies the file to display in the iframe?

Place them in the url of the iframe if you absolutely insist on using iframes. They are a serious design faux pas.


I can't stop you from doing something silly, but at least I can help you do it right.
