You can add an onerror attribute to your iframe, e.g.:

<iframe src="..." onerror="..."></iframe>

Here's a live example that uses two different methods using jQuery (which is included with in5 output):


I did some more testing and found the onerror event is only firing properly in Firefox.

These solutions offer a cross-browser method: https://jsfiddle.net/justinputney/jpaaytc4/2/

Essentially, it adds a navigator.onLine check inside the onload attribute of the iframe. If offline, the onerror attribute code is evaluated.
