"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1. Use a javascript function to load the IFRAME.
2. In the IFRAME code have a hidden tag at the end of the page marked LOADED as this is at the end of the page you will be sure it is loaded,
3. From the main page check for a certain number of seconds if the IFRAME is loaded tag is there
4. After you have expired time, then redirect the frame to your client page.

This is a 30 second solution with no research, but it might help you.
