I've got a simple booking form and want to transfer the data into a different 'booking' page in an iframe as we use an external booking system - but I'm having some trouble working this out. I have this code:
[code] <form id="bookForm" action="skiddawtest.php" method="get">
<input type="hidden" name="siteId" value="LDHSKIDDAW" />
<input type="hidden" name="chainAction" value="newAvailabilitySearch" />
<input type="text" id="departure" name="arrival" />
<input id="arrival" name="departure" type="hidden" />
<select id="nights" name="nights">
<select id="numberOfPersons" name="numberOfPersons">
<option selected="selected" value="1">1</option>
<label for="bookForm_offerCode">Offer Code</label>
<input type="text" id="bookForm_offerCode" name="bookForm_offerCode" />
<input id="bookForm_0" value="Search" class="ui-button ui-widget ui-state-default ui-corner-all" onclick="$.publish('indicator');" type="submit" />
And have tried both these on a separate page to try and pull in the data:
[CODE] <iframe src="https://uk1.roomlynx.net/rezrooms2/loadOBMApplication.action?siteId=LDHSKIDDAW&chainAction=newAvailabilitySearch" frameborder="0" width="950" height="1200"></iframe>
<iframe src="https://uk1.roomlynx.net/rezrooms2/loadOBMApplication.action?siteId=LDHSKIDDAW&chainAction=newAvailabilitySearch&arrival=number OfNights=numberOfPersons=offerCode=" frameborder="0" width="950" height="1200"></iframe>[CODE]
The top one just brings in from todays date, the bottom one doesn't work. I don't know what else I could do to bring in the data? The date/night details appear in the address bar in the i-frame page which indicates to me that something is working, but its not getting brought into the actual booking portal.
Form code - http://www.lakedistricthotels.net/skiddawtest.html<br>
i-frame page - http://www.lakedistricthotels.net/skiddawtest.php
Any help would be appreciated.

Can't be done. Period.
*IF* you have control of BOTH servers, you can use message events to pass data. That is, you can write special code for the uk1.roomlynx.net site that would accept messages sent from the www.lakedistricthotels.net site. But if you can't alter the code on uk1.roomlynx.net site, then you can't do it.
You *MAY* be able to do some of this with the help of server-side code, but it depends on how carefully controlled that roomlynx.net site is. Since it is https:// you may find it quite difficult. Likely the best thing you can do is contact the owners of roomlynx.net and ask if they can provide you with an API for this purpose.
