Resizing Image over Iframe

Posted on 2009-04-30

hello experts,

I currently have an iframe that contains a list of scrolling thumbnail images.  That iframe is placed within a parent page of course.  Within the iframe when the user hovers over the thumbnail a web handler is called that recreates a bigger image that populates a div tag with the new image, the problem with that is the image is being displayed "below" the iframe because the size of the iframe is smaller than the image.  I want to keep the iframe the same size.  Is there any possible way to have the new image display over the parent page?

    The <img> element would need to be placed into the parent document instead of the one loaded into the firame.
