HTMLIFrameElement.reload()

Non-standard
This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.

The reload() method of the HTMLIFrameElement interface is used to reload the content of the <iframe>.

Syntax

instanceOfHTMLIframeElement.reload(hardReload);

Returns

Void.

Parameters

hardReload Optional
A boolean that indicates whether all the resources to reload must be revalidated (true) or may be taken directly from the browser cache (false).

Examples

stopReload.addEventListener('touchend',function() {
  if(stopReload.textContent === 'x') {
    browser.stop();
  } else {
    browser.reload();
  }
});

Specification

Not part of any specification.

Browser compatibility

Supported since Firefox 47, in chrome code only.

Unlikely ever to be supported in other browsers.
