As long as they are on the same domain (meaning, if your "calling page" is from and your IFrame page points to you can do nothing because that's Cross-Site Scripting)... anyway, as long as they are on the same domain you can do this in the child page:

<script type="text/javascript">

parent.document.getElementById("someSortOfDivOrWhatever").innerHTML = "Hey, it's me!!!";


or lets say you wanted to put some data into a hidden input field with the id "childInput"

<script type="text/javascript">

parent.document.getElementById("childInput").value= "This is from the child page";
