How to insert HTML content into an iFrame using jQuery?

Here is the task to insert HTML content into an iFrame using jQuery. To do so, we can use the jQuery contents() method.

The .contents() method: It returns all the direct children, including text and comment nodes for the selected element.

Syntax:



$(selector).contents()
    Approach:

  • Find the iframe in the body section.
  • Get the value to be inserted in the iframe in the body section
  • Place the value in the iframe
