Acrobat - PDF in IFrame Open Link in PDF to Parent Page

Hello,
I have a pdf displayed in a web page in an IFrame.  The pdf has a web link in it.  When the link is clicked on it opens everything in the IFrame.  Does anyone know how to open the page in the parent frame?

I have the javascript to open in a new window but need this to open in the parent.

PDF is not DOM tree, nor it has access to that.

Hi gheist,
There's a way in Acrobat to add javascript to the link.  I have the script to open the item in a new window.  So was wondering if there's a script to open in parent window.  Or maybe close current window and open new one with the new page?

Here's the script you javascript you use to open in a new window.
app.launchURL("https://www.mynewwebsite.com/", true)

The javascript is added with the full version of acrobat.

And disabled in most corporate setups still using aging Acrobat Reader where pdf.js already took most of the ground.
The javascript in acrobat is executed in acrobat. there is no chance it can control rest of browser.
