How to access parent Iframe from javascript

Spread the love

Question Description

Well, I have an IFrame, which calls a same domain page.
My problem is that I want to access some information from this parent Iframe from this called page (from JavaScript). How can I access this Iframe?

Details: There are several Iframes just like this one, that can have the same page loaded, because I am programming a Windows environment. I intend to close this Iframe, that’s why I need to know which I should close from inside him. I have an array keeping references to these Iframes.

EDIT: There iframes are generated dynamically

Practice As Follows

Also you can set name and ID to equal values


so you will be able to use next code inside child page

parent.document.getElementById(window.name);
