Hi,
I am calling a page in iframe. Which I think ultimatly becomes a part of main page? please correct
In either case what I am trying to do is to call a jscript function such as,
function show_popup()
{ document.getElementById('display-frame').style.display = 'none';
   document.getElementById('waiting-div').style.display = 'block';}
these divs are present in the main page so does the iframe - in which I call this page
where onClick of the button I am trying to run the function - show_popup

As you may have judged, I get the error 'object doesn't exist' or 'object requred'
Just wondering if there is way to get over this?

Thanks for your help

You can define the function show_popup()  on te ppal window,
and from the iframe page loaded, you can call it:
parent.show_popup();
