dynamicdrive ajax script

http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ajaxtabscontent/index.htm
i am using this script...it's very good-the tabs open iframes inside the div that replaced under them,
 but there is a big problem cause there is no option to
create a script that you can run from iframes and to made the main page move to another tab....
for example you in tab1 reading from some i frame and want to click inside the iframe some link to move the main page to tab2.

is there any body here that worked with ajax tabs and know how to create sucj a link?

using the same script as the main page jsut put parent infront of it perhaps?

so for that first example in their code, on the frame page you could do something like


<a href="javascript:parent.countries.expandit(2)">test</a>

Open in new window

it should work... if I call a page in an iframe from my parent window, I should be able to do something like "parent.testfunction()"

in the original page I would ahve a javascript function named testfunction()
