XMLHttpRequest cannot load, No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' is present

Hi All,

I am having a visualforce page, with a tabpanel component.
<apex:tabpanel switchType="client">
    <apex:tab name="tab1" onTabEnter="parent.setHeight(window);">
     ----------some content------
     <apex:tab name="tab2" onTabEnter="parent.setHeight(window);">
     ----------some other content------
First tab will be having content of 1600 px height and second tab content will be having 400px height.

I am displaying this visualforce page in another vf page using an iframe.
I am setting the height of the iframe dynamically onload of the iframe, using the following javascript function.
   function setHeight(obj)
  <apex:iframe html-oncomplete="setHeight(this)" scrolling="false"/>

But when I click on any tab, in the iframe the parent method are not getting called.
Even I am not able to switch the tabs.

In the debug console, its showing an error like following:
"XMLHttpRequest cannot load ..... No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin '.....' is therefore not allowed access"

Can someone help me with this please?

You have to add a listener to the parent VF page then have the child vf send a message to the listener.

So  parent add some JS like this "message",
    function (d) {
     if(d.origin !== ''){ return; } // replace this with the base URL of your visual force i.e. the part before /apex/yourVFpage
      var payloadArray = JSON.parse( );
   if (typeof payloadArray.resize !== 'undefined'){
  var iframe = document.getElementByID('containing iframe');
  iframe.height = 265 + 26 + payloadArray.resize * 14 ;

Then have some JS like in the child VF

function resizePopup(){
      // Pass the information back to the parent
       top.postMessage( '{"resize": {!errorCount}}', '{!parentURL}' );

The important thing here is that you have to add a parameter to the child VF page that gives the URL of the parent URL (which i keep in a controller member variable parentURL).
