    I have a web page that from a query that loads the search result into
    an iframe on the page. In the search result inside the iframe i would
    like to be able to load content into div tag that is in the main page.
    Is that possible?

    The code i have tried goes like much like this
    function showObj(theid){



    <div id="externalDiv">
    //here is where i would load content from javascript

    html for the object desription
    .... onClick="showObj('objectdescription1')>

    <div id="objectdescription1">thedesription for nr1</div>
    <div id="objectdescription2">thedesription for nr2</div>
    <div id="objectdescription3">thedesription for nr3</div>

    a écrit :
    function showObj(theid){
    var mother = parent.document.getElementById('externalDiv');
    var daughter = parent.myIframe.document.getElementById(theid);
    if(mother && daughter)
    mother.innerHTML = daughter.innerHTML;
    alert('something wrong !\nprobably in iframe');

    this function can be called from main page or iframes's page.
    <p><a href="javascript:showObj('objectdescription1')">
