hi all,

our main site runs on DotNetNuke so the application i'm writing works within a viva.iframe within one of the pages.

I have set the timeout to 30 mins but when this expires (ie. session variables blank) i want to redirect the main page to the login page.

Is there an easy way to redirect the parent of an iframe, also has anyone had any knowledge working this with DotNetNuke as i tried a little test using a javascript function (parent.location.href='page.asp') but this didn't work.

I've managed to get it to detect when the session has timed out but my initial obvious redirect opened the entire site within the iframe (like it would).

Thank you

If you want to redirect the topmost frame then use top.location.href='page.asp'.
