I have a API call that gets returned into an iframe however I want the page to automatically brake out of the iframe i.e. load new page not inside the iframe but to replace the page with a new one.

Here's some JavaScript you can include in the body of any page so that, if the page is opened in any frame that doesn't happen to be the top-most frame, it will break out and replace the top level with itself:

  <!-- html code here, etc. etc. //-->
  <script language="javascript1.2">
     var mypage = "index.html"; //replace this with the name of your page
     if(window != top) { top.location.replace(mypage); }
  <!-- html code here, etc. etc. //-->

Open in new window
