Mobile iFrame website opens link to another website with in the app

Hi I have a problem on mobile development when i use iFrame to load an external website into the app. The external website has a URL link to their terms, when i press this it dosen't open in the iframe or opens the extrnal browser. The Website take over the whole screen and a can't go back in the app if I'm on IOS. The website essentially takes over the whole screen and the only why to get back to the apps real interface is to close the app completely if I'm on IOS. Can i fix this some way make the iFrame open the link or an external browser on the phone? 

Best Regards,

Hi Eric,

you can use InAppBrowser Forge & try the same.

perhaps for the iframe, to force an external link to open in the same frame, you can try with a JS to update the links of web-page under iframe, such as:

<a target="_parent" href="http://url.org">link</a>


I am still not sure this idea is possible .. but it just something that can be try...

Hi Eric,

You can also add a onclick event and load the following JS script: 

window.open('https://www.outsystems.com', '_system');


Kind regards,
