I have a contract budget management program where hours to be worked (within various contracts' period-of-performance) are computed. These projected hours are displayedto the employee in a gridview on their timesheet (web program) to be used as a guide
for charging hours worked. A new FIO bought well-known accounting software with it's own timesheet function but without the budget function. I'm trying to figure out the best way to present the projected hours on the same web page as the 3rd party timesheet
(I don't have control of the latter; it's just a URL). In ASP days I would have built an I-frame. Evidently an earlier version of .Net had <frameset> function but that is obsolete. What is the best way to accomplish my goal? Thank you.

Here is a link to an article that uses ajax update panels to accomplish the same thing as an iFrame.
I hope this helps.

Thank you, Chris. I read the article & it is WAYYYYY over my head. Nevertheless I downloaded the source code and will wade through it as time permits. Incidentally, the URL in question is HTTPS and IE (depending on the version) usually requires a new
browser to be opened. So before I spend a lot of time on this, do you by chance know whether the https url will "stay" in the div?
I'll mark your answer as the solution anyway because it is.
