Javascript Question

Is there a way to change context to iframe in javascript console?

I would like to change the context of the javascript executed in the webkit developer tool/firebug console to execute its code like it is running from inside an iframe on the page.

I know I could do this by opening the page in the iframe on a separate page, but I want to run code where it interacts with the parent frame.


Chrome 15 allows you to change the scope of the console. On the bottom of the console, next to the clear console button, there is a menu that says <top frame> which will give a list of available frames:

Firefox has a similar feature currently in development:

You can also navigate across frames using the command line:

var frame = document.getElementById("frame1").contentWindow;
