How to load a page in one iframe using the javascript that resides in different iframe

A parent window contain two iframes. Lets say "iframe1" and "iframe2".
When I click on a button in iframe1, corresponding HTML should be loaded in iframe2.

I have written below code in javascript in iframe1 to accomplish that -
 parent.document.getElementsByName('iframe2')[0].src = "http://localhost/test.html";

Open in new window


This is working fine when parent window and iframes are in same domain. When they are in different domain, I am getting a javascript access error. I tried setting "document.domain" property of child iframe to the one corresponding to the parent and it didn't work.

Please suggest any alternate solutions.

I don't think what you are trying to do is possible as you describe.  

Just thinking out loud, what about framed site A gets updated and talks to the server and the server.  Then page that is in the other frame  has data pushed out and updates.
