Subscribing To Iframe Events

Talkable integration embeds a referral campaign as an iframe with src attribute starting with domain (or custom domain if the white-labeling is setup).

In order to subscribe to an iframe Event you need to know name HTML attribute of the Talkable iframe and the Event name. Iframe ‘name’ attribute may change depending on the campaign view opened. Thus, to use the right iframe name, open the campaign view you want to capture events from and copy the iframe name from the HTML of the page.

Below is an example of subscription to offer_loaded Talkable iframe Event.

Given we have integrated Campaign for Standalone Placement, its HTML iframe reference looks like that:

<div id="talkable-offer">
  <iframe name="talkable-offer-iframe" src=""></iframe>

Knowing the container name attribute of the iframe is talkable-offer-iframe the subscription JS will be:

talkable.subscribe("offer_loaded", "talkable-offer-iframe", function(data, iframe) {
  alert("Talkable campaign iframe is loaded!");

Notice two arguments passed in the callback:

  1. data object — the data passed by the iframe upon firing the event

  2. iframe object — iframe’s HTML DOM reference
