rebind grid after an update, in seperate iframe?

Is this possible?  If so could someone show an example?

I have a single page (A) which has two iframes (X) and (Y).  Each of these iframe pages have there own datagrid.  When I make an update to the iframe(Y) grid, how do I rebind the iframe(X) grid.

Notes:
1) All pages(A),(X) and (Y) use codebehind.
2) The IFrame(Y) page does a 30 second meta refresh.
3) I do not want to meta refresh the IFrame(X) page... only interact when needed.

Thank you for your time...  Keith

OK.... are you familiar with communicating between IFRAMEs in Javascript? If not, see here:

http://www.mike-levin.com/iframes/netscape-communication-between-iframes.html

The basic trick will be to create some Javascript code that grabs a reference to the (X) IFRAME and uses window.location.reload to cause the page to refresh.

In the (Y) IFRAME's code that handles the grid's update, you put this code into a string and add the following:

    RegisterStartupScript("reload", sScript)

This causes the script (in sScript) to be output at the bottom of the (Y) IFRAME. As the frame redisplays, it executes the code and causes (X) to refresh, updating the grid.

Make sure you put

    RegisterStartupScript("reload", "")

in Y's page load, so that by default there's no reload.

Your Javascript code might be as simple as

    parent.frames['X'].location.reload

where 'X' is the name you gave to the frame.
