please rethink the iFrameapproach if possible as it complicates processes … but anyhow @MaxZieb wrote an extension to solve your problem
I wish i hadn’t done it that way to start with but i didn’t foresee needing to accomplish what i need to. Now i must get things in a jiffy so no time to restructure this activity. Thanks for a speedy answer, i’ll look at what you attached.
I’ve been trying to understand how to implement this but i’m finding it difficult to understand the example.
In a simple case you can access parent iframe global variables/functions like:
parent.window["myGlobalVar"] += 1; parent.window.changeIt();
postMessage. There are examples on the forums; the code for this method isn’t simple. The Hype GlobalBehavior extension makes use of it, so may be the best option still!
I see. I will document that information for the future. In this case i need to do the opposite of accessing the parent frame. I need the parent frame to read a variable in the child. I’ll read up about postMessage and the GlobalBehavior. Thanks Jonathan.
