Change all <a> tag's target in iframe in windows store app?


  • Hi all,

    I now building a windows store app and having a page that load external page in the iframe. The page is having <a> tag and when I click that my iframe is redirect to the url in its href. I want all <a> tag in iframe to open the browser instead of redirect itself, so how can I do that?
    The solution I think of is change all <a> tag's target to "_blank" but it seem like I can't do that inside iframe.

    Thanks in advanced.

  • Like this:

    var frame = document.getElementById("tab").contentDocument;   
    //Include in function or event.
    var tags = frame.getElementsByTagName("a");   
    for (var i = 0; i < tags.length; i++) {   
        tags[i].target= '_blank';  
    Hope this helps!
