If the page in the iframe is on the same domain name (site) as the parent page, you can use some jQuery to interact with the contents of the iframe page.  See this article for an example: http://simple.procoding.net/2008/03/21/how-to-access-iframe-in-jquery/

 $('#iframeID').contents().find('#someID').html();

Open in new window


If the iframe page is on a different domain than the parent page, you will run into cross-site scripting issues and will be blocked by most browsers.

You can proxy the other site on your site. I have a sample here http://www.sharepointjohn.com/aspnet-proxy-page-cross-domain-requests-from-ajax-and-javascript/

Though the Proxy solution will work I was hoping for a easier solution using Javascript or other language to read off the screen.  I do not have access to the other server the data is coming from.  As of today I have not found a solution which will work for me.  

Thanks.
