iFrame successor?

Hello everybody,

as the use of iFrames in WebDynpro is deprecated I would like to know, if there are any other possibilities to integrate html-Code within a WebDynpro application. Does anybody have some information about that?

Kind regards,

    From the Web Dynpro IFrame API.

    The <code>IFrame</code> UI element represents an internal frame.

    It is used to display Web resources like HTML pages in a certain view area.

    The URL of the displayed resource is given by the property

    <code>source</code>, the

    size of the area is given by the properties <code>height</code> and


    BEWARE:</b> This UI element must <b>not</b> be used to embed interactive

    resources, e.g. applications! It's content may be reloaded at the Web Dynpro

    framework's discretion whenever technical restrictions require it! In fact,

    its content is reloaded after every roundtrip when using server-side


    <b>Please do not use the iFrame UI element to run an iView inside your Web

    Dynpro application (running itself as an iView). Doing so, the portal session

    management is not aware of the started iView and therefore there is no way to

    make sure that this "inner" iView is destroyed when leaving the page.</b>

    This type can be called by applications using Web Dynpro, but DO NOT EXTEND OR IMPLEMENT IT!

    This UI element may be withdrawn with the first new NetWeaver release in 2006

    as it is no longer needed.

    This UI element is too broken to be really useful and cannot be fixed.

    For integration of non-Web Dynpro applications, please use the Enterprise Portal instead.

    For embedding (help) texts and the like, please use the appropriate mechanisms, e.g. TextView, FormattedTextView, Explanation etc.

      But does this mean, that there is no chance to integrate my own HTML stuff within a WD Application?

      All html and java script handling will be taken care by the frame work.

      FormattedTextView can be used for some purposes

      What about a Flash for example?

      You can try by tweaking the Office control UI element.
