    Prevent web page being loaded into an iFrame

    Hi all,

    I am facing problem in preventing my web page being loaded into an iFrame. I search in internet and found this solution :

    if (self == top)
    document.documentElement.style.display = 'block';
    top.location = self.location;

    The above java script code is simple redirecting me to the home page of my web site. But I donot want that kind of solution.

    When anybody tried to access my web page through iFrame, it should show an error message like "The content of the web site cannot be loaded into an IFrame". This message should be displayed inside the iFrame.

    For example, if we tried to access "google.com" site in an iframe, the website should not allow the iframe object to load into it, insted it will display an error message along with a provision to open webiste with an external link with it.

    Any help?

    Instead of

    top.location = self.location;

    which reloads the page outside of the frame simply use

    self.location = 'noframe.html';

    and put your error message in the noframe.html page.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.
