Hi GWT compiles and put things inside an iframe. But if I want to set title of that iframe how to do that?
The reason behind this is accessibility standard which demands a meaning title of an iframe.

I must say I don't understand why you need it ("accessibility standard which demands a meaning title of an iframe" == bullshit), but if you really need it, and assuming you mean a <title> element in the doc loaded in the iframe, you can either:
  • use the XSLinker (<add-linker name="xs"/>) which installs the code in the main window rather than an iframe.
  • make your own linker copying the IframeLinker and replacing the "module prefix" with one including a <title>
  • make your own linker extending CrossSiteIframeLinker and replacing the "install location" script with a copy of com/google/gwt/core/ext/linker/impl/installLocationIframe.js that includes a <title>, or use com/google/gwt/core/Ext/linker/impl/installLocationMainWindow.js which doesn't use an iframe.
If you were rather talking about a title="" attribute on the iframes, then it's almost the same, except you'll have to change the IframeTemplate.js file in the case of the IframeLinker.

I didn't personally tested any of the above though.
