IFRAME question

I have a page (page A) that has an IFRAME in it. The IFRAME opens a
page (Page B)that has checkboxes in it. When I click on a box in page
B , it has an onclick that needs to run a function in Page A. I have
been trying window.opener.f unction() with not luck. Any ideas?

I guess that the function isn't called "function" (a keyword).

You have *three* pages:
the outer one, A
a page in the iframe, you don't name this
and the page in the openend window, B

To go from B to A, the path is:
window.opener.p arent.functionN ame()
^itself ^iframe ^outer

That did not work. Maybe I should go deeper with the facts. Page A was
opened by showModalDialog
