Let me explain my scenario.

The parent page contains a "I agree" checkbox and an IFrame. The Iframe loads a static HTML page with the different conditions that the user has to agree upon.

The requirement is to make sure that the user scrolls down to the botton of the IFrame, before he clicks on the 'I agree'. I dont find any event on the Iframe that could help me do this.

Any suggestions ?

You can either use an anchor:

Or you can use JavaScript to position the page where you want it. I blogged about this the other day:

That is a way to scroll to the end. But is there a way to check if the user really scrolled all the way ?

Why don't you put a check box all the way at the end?

Eric,
Thanks for the quick response.

I wish I could put the checkboxes at the end of the Iframe page. The problem here is that the contents of the Iframe are not part of my application. They are customizable and can vary by user.

One option might be to use some javascript to write a checkbox at the end of the Iframe content file. But I would be stuck if the user opts to use a PDF instead of a HTML for the Iframe.

Any thoughts ?
