Referencing Main Page from iFramed Page
Hello, I have a script which works from my main page, but I need to embed it also into an iframed page, and have it affect the main page from there as well. Let me try to explain...
In my main page, I have the following iframes:
<control buttons embedded on main page, along with the iframes>
The default source of "main" is page A, which is a frameset of pages B and C. In page B, I want to embed the same controls I have on the main page, and have them affect the main page from there. Here's the controls script from the main page - it works from that page - a resizing onClick of the "player" iframe:
function resizeIframe(iframeId, iframeHeight, iframeWidth)
<a id="widenButton" onclick="resizeIframe(player', 420, 720)return false;">Enlarge Player</a>
How would I put the widenButton in that back page and still have it affect the front page?
Thanks in advance for any help,

Done.Code:<body> <a id="widenButtonInIframe" onclick="parent.resizeIframe('player', 420, 720);return false;" >Enlarge Player</a> </body>
No, you don't need to copy the JS code to the IFrame page.
NOTE: This ONLY works if the iframe src= is from the same domain as the main window. But that is true for ANY technique you might use.
