I have an IFrame with an image in it. From the parent of the IFrame I need to change the width and height of the image. Here is the image:

<img id='picid' name='picname'  src='whatever.jpg">

what is the jscript in the parent to change the pic size?
thanks

If you have only one iframe, you can use

window.frames[0].getElementById("picid").src = "whateverNew.jpg";

If you have more than one iframe and/or frames, you need to use name of the iframe

window.frames["IFrameName"].getElementById("picid").src = "whateverNew.jpg";

I want to change the size so I tried:

window.frames["IFrameName"].getElementById("picid").style.width=100;

gives error:  object does not support this property or method
