Reload/refresh iFrame

I have an iFrame from which I launch a form in a new window. When this form submits, I want to refresh the opening iFrame's content.

I can successfully address the iFrame object from the form via window.opener, but can't seem to find a clean simple way to execute a refresh or reload.

I know that I can set the iFrame's src to the same path, but I am looking for something cleaner than that.

Anyone have anything that works?

I should mention this only needs to work for IE8 as this will be in a controlled environment.

That works. Hard to believe this wasn't easier to find through google.
