i like to wait till iframe is loaded

Hii friends
i am facing one problem ..
i am creating one Iframe and after some processing(assigning it some src)  i m calling open() function in in which this iframe is getting opened, but some times
a new window is opening and source assigned to iframe is opening in new window.
i analysed the problem behind this is, when open function is called still iframe is not loaded properly. so open function call should wait till i frame is loaded. but i don't know how to do this. can u tell how can i implement this.

thx, Michel!
well ihad the same problem and i solved it like this:

i have one iframe which loads the loading.php on page one.php like this:

<iframe src="loading.php" width="100%" height="100%" name="content"></iframe>

this is my loading.php and it will refresh itself after 0 sek but only if page two.php has finished loading and it will while loading show  "loading page two.php"

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=two.php">
loading page two.php

this is all you have to do an the reload will always wait and show "loading page two.php" until page two.php has finished loading in the background and then show it

hope i could help
