Javascript Question

Calling a parent window function from an iframe

I want to call a parent window JavaScript function from an iframe.

<script>
function abc()
{
alert("sss");
}
</script>

<iframe id="myFrame">
<a onclick="abc();" href="#">Call Me</a>
</iframe>

Answer
<a onclick="parent.abc();" href="#" >Call Me </a>

See window.parent

Returns a reference to the parent of the current window or subframe.

If a window does not have a parent, its parent property is a reference to itself.

When a window is loaded in an <iframe>, <object>, or <frame>, its parent is the window with the element embedding the window.
