Manipulating a jsp form via a different form

Hi,
I have a Main.jsp that includes an iframe tag.
The iframe includes a frame.jsp file.

Main.jsp :

<iframe name = "jspFrame" height="150" width="800" marginheight="10" marginwidth="10"  frameborder="1"   scrolling="auto" > > </iframe>

<script>
setFrame();
function setFrame(){
var taskConfigFrame = document.getElementById('jspFrame');
            taskConfigFrame.setAttribute('src', 'frame.jsp');
}
</script>

How can I call a javascript function in frame.jsp or perform a submit to the frame.jsp if all I have is a submit button of the Main.jsp?
All actions I want to do via the Main.jsp, I don't want to create a submit button in frame.jsp.
Please advise
Thanks
Jo

you can use submit button to submit the form in frame or form in main. but not both.
to submit the form in iframe:

NS 6.2 +

  window.frames['ifMyIFrame'].document.frmSubmit.submit();

IE 5.0 +

  document.ifMyIFrame.frmSubmit.submit();

Hi,
After using the following in Main.jsp:

taskConfigFrame = document.getElementById('jspFrame');
            taskConfigFrame.setAttribute('src', 'frame.jsp');

I used:
  taskConfigFrame.document.forms[0].submit();

and it does the work, it submit the iframe (frame.jsp) but...

the submit in the frame.jsp is a s follows:
<input type="submit" onclick="setSaveWasClicked('true');"/>
and i need to use the function setSaveWasClicked() when submitting the form but when I submit from Main.jsp it only do a submit without going through the function.

How can I do a submit with using onclick function?
Thanks

Hi kennethxu,
remove the last mail that I sent from the protocol.
What I wrote does not submit the iframe.I couldn't understand  document.ifMyIFrame.frmSubmit.submit();

I want after pressing the submit button in Main form I have a function that should submit the frame.
If the frame id is "frameForm", how the submit command should be?
please advise
thanks

>> the submit in the frame.jsp is a s follows:
>> <input type="submit" onclick="setSaveWasClicked('true');"/>
then, you should actually be calling the function instead of simpley submitting the form:
taskConfigFrame.setSaveWasClicked('true');

sorry you'll still need to submit it after function call:
taskConfigFrame.setSaveWasClicked('true');
taskConfigFrame.frameForm.submit();
