Hi
 
I have done this before (maybe not with iframes, but with framesets) so I know it works, but what I'm trying to do is run a function in another iframe
 
eg:
I have an iframe called "Main", and in Main it has a page with the following:
<script>
function test()
{
alert("It works")
}
</script>
 
How would I run the test function from another iframe. I have tried:
<a href="javascript:test();" target="Main">Click here to test</a> and it didn't work
 
Is there a way? I can't find the old files where I have done this before.
 
Thanks very much in advance!
 

EDIT: I found the old files, I used <a href=javascript:parent.frames['Main'].test();>Click here to test</a> however it only works in Internet Explorer. I need this to work in Chrome as I am building a database based in the Chrome where most of the functions would not work in IE

Can you use
document.getElementById('Main').contentWindow.test();
?
