I am new to Handviewer. I have tried using the HTML call <iframe src="http://www.bridgebase.com/tools/handviewer.html" height="400" width="500"></iframe> many different ways and all I ever get is a blank window of the height and width specified. <iframe> works find for my for virtually any other web sight I call up, which leads me to suspect that something has changed in the Handviewer side.

Is anyone else having a similar problem?

Works for me. Try

  • Cut this code-segment and paste it into a file, using a text-editor.
  • Save the text as "quadrille.htm".
  • Click on the file-name in file-explorer.
  • Your browser should display the hands in a new window.

<html>
<head>
<title>Quadrille</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Quadrille -- 4-trick squeeze -- by Nigel Guthrie </h1>
<iframe width="650" height="500" 
src="https://www.bridgebase.com/tools/handviewer.html?

You're adding the parameters for hands, bidding, play, etc. right? Can you include an actual hand that you're trying to embed in your iframe?

Note that there is a very subtle difference between nige1's example and the handviewer documentation, namely that nige1 uses the secure http (https) rather than the default http for the src in the iframe, i.e, src=https:// and not src=http://

I have to do the same for my Google Blogger website now that I've forced the use of https when accessing the blog (as it does not like insecure content on a secure site). This may be your issue too.

You can also write just //www.bridgebase.com/handview.html?parameters, leaving out http: or https:, and it will automatically use the same protocol as the site you're embedding the HV in.

Perhaps http://www.bridgebas...ools/hvdoc.html should be updated?

(since I, and I suspect many others, just go there each time to pick up the template)
