Getting InstanceName though iframe ID

FCKEditor currently communicates the InstanceName to fckeditor.html by setting it in the GET string.

Due to a restriction (not really relevant to describe here) in our case the use of a GET string was impossible.

We found a way to work around this by extracting the InstanceName from the ID of the enclosing iframe instead of from the GET-string. Relevant code snippet:

var frameid =;
var InstanceName = frameid.substring(0, frameid.length - 8);

It might be a nice idea to use this instead of looking at the GET-string.
