iframe google calendar component not working correctly in VF edit page



I have generated iframe code from a google calendar - that displays multiple calendars. When you create the google iframe code with multiple calendars shown in the one calendar, it modifies the iframe code accordingly.


If I were to take this (multi-calendar) iframe code and put it in a home page component as a "HTML component" it works and displays all the calendars with all the niffty calendar selctions from google.


I have created a custom Object edit page, that overrides the New and Edit button and I am trying to display this google calendar iframe on the page.


It's like it is not allowing the multi-calendar elements of the iframe code for some reason?


I have the iframe code sitting in the new VF page like so



<apex:pageBlockSection title="Calendar" columns="1"> <apex:pageBlockSectionItem > <iframe src=longurl /></iframe> </apex:pageBlockSectionItem> </apex:pageBlockSection>


I've tried using the <apex:iframe> component and still always the same result, (same in different browsers. tried clearing cache cookies and that kind of troubleshooing as well.)


Result = The calendar shows up but does not display any of the mulit-calendar features from the google iframe code (any entires or calendar selection dropdown) .


I would like the Visualforce to treat that iframe code the same way the homepage component treats it... (just as if it would on a html page) I do not know how to achieve this. Can anyone help?


What is the core difference between the built in 'homepage component' (for a HTML section) and trying to create that in a new visualforce page?


is there an apex component I am missing <apex:missing> perhaps?  :P



I have the same issue.  Has anyone come up with a way to show multiple google calendars on either a custom web tab or a visualforce page?

I used the Apex iframe tag and it worked fine.

I have also tried to create a VF tab with google calendars in iframe. But i get the same problem as you. Blank calendar although the home page component works like it should. @Nathan: How did you manage to fix the problem? Can you paste a code sample or can anyone verify this?


thx, we really need a seperate tab for this because the calendar has sensitive information.
