call function in iframe

I have document with an iframe in it. I'm able to call a javascript
function in the main-document from the javascript inside the
iframe-document. I have difficulties to do the other way round, i.e. to
call a function in the iframe-document from javascript in the main-document.
TIA

The following works with IE, Opera 7 and Mozilla when both pages are hosted
on the same domain/environment:

d = document;
f = d.frames ? d.frames['frameName'] : d.getElementById('frameId');
p = f.document || f.contentWindow.document;

p.functionName();

Use
<iframe name="iframeName"
and then
if (window.frames.iframeName && window.frames.iframeName.functionName) {
window.frames.iframeName.functionName();
}

Use

window.frames.iframeName.functionName();

I've got the same problem as Christian..

When i use the functioncall window.frames.contens.alerter('dsa') (in then
iFrame called contens, and the function called alerter) i get this message
in the FireFox Javascript Console:

Error: window.frames.contens has no properties

The script wors fine in IE (or rather: a variant of it) som the frame name
and fuction is right.

How was it solved?

The parent page of the IFrame needs to contain the functions called by a
page loaded into the IFrame.

I hope it helps,
