    Internet Explorer Jump to Parent Anchor From Within iFrame Using Target

    Does anyone know how to put code on an included iframe which will cause the page to jump to a specific anchor point on the parent page? When I try the following, it only jumps to the top of the iframe and not to the top of the parent. I basically want it to scroll all the way to the top of the parent page as soon as the page loads.

    Code:
    window.location = "#top";
    Thanks!

    How about:
    Code:
    window.parent.location ="#top"
    ?

    That actually caused the iframe to break out of the parent, so that none of the parent is visible.

    Give this a try

    parent.scrollTo(0,0)
    The silent one.

    The most dangerous thing in the world is an idea.
