The MIFrame component is a frame, a container inside your page where you can load another webpage.


You can define the webpage to load whithin the frame using the Source property.


Specify the Source Dynamically

To change the webpage loaded whithin the frame from PHP, modify the Source property of the frame: $this->ComponentName->Source = "http://www.example.com";.

You can change the loaded webpage from JavaScript as well: $("#ComponentName").attr("src", "http://www.example.com");.



When users follow an external link on your mobile application, by default it will be loaded in a new page inside PhoneGap web browser. The problem is PhoneGap web browser has no controls, hence users will not be able to get back to the previous page.

This can be solved by setting your application up so external links are open in device’s default web browser instead. The problem with that is that MIFrame component will stop working as expected, and its Source property will be treated as a simple external link.

You should carefully consider the cons and pros before you decide how to proceed.
