P.s.: This is a cross domain Problem... The Browser contains 1 Frame and the browser displays 1 URL and the Frame is used to navigate to the other URL with the Data attached the the URLs...

Ahhhh well...

There is one sentence i hate about the MSDN.....

STATUS
This behavior is by design....

Well i found a work around (messy but working) I just redirect the top frame to the url of the inner frame and i am able to mess with the page like i desire... Messy but working :) And since its only for personal use i can live with it... Anyway... Thanks for the link to the Article... If noone comes up with a better solution ill accept it when a cleanup guy shows up :)

rdrunner, It appears that you have devised a workaround... However, the exact syntax as to how it was accomplished
was not posted... could you please elaborate for the benefit of others reviewing this question from the PAQ database?

Thank you,

I really would not give this workaround to any client...

But for the record..

I keep a 2nd browser open (invisible) which only holds the contens of the frame i am interested in. This 2nd browser is updated everytime i recieve a navigate event from the frame i am watching. Since i am only interested in the information in that frame this workaround works. If i want to update or control the contens then i would be stuck with this. Like i said its functional but not elegant :/
