Creating an I-frame inside a Salesforce Tab

I want to create a custom application that has an i-frame inside of the Salesforce contact tab. Basically whenever a CRM user accesses one of their contacts, they will see all of the usual fields from the Contacts tab plus my i-frame.

 

I tried editing the Contacts tab but was not able to figure out where to click to change the VisualForce.

 

Does Salesforce not allow me to edit their contacts tab? Do I need to create a custom tab inorder to add in the i-frame?

 

thanks in advance,

Nick

Hi nick,

 

First you have to create a Visualforce page under Setup>Develop>Pages.  It could be something like this.  Make sure you set "standardController" to the object that you want to put the iFrame on the layout.

<apex:page standardController="Contact">
 <apex:iframe src="http://www.salesforce.com" scrolling="true" id="theIframe"/>
</apex:page>

 Then go to the Contact layout that you want to put the iFrame on.  You can add a new section for it and then click Visualforce Pages and drag the page that you just created to that new section.
