You are calling it before the page is loaded. You need to call it onload.

that means i cant access iframe before the body in loaded(rendered)
so is this only applicable to iframes or also for pop up windows?

Well, you can't write to a pop-up window before opening it either. If you call window.open(...) and then write to it, it should work - as long as you're not trying to modify some elements of the window before they are loaded (a DIV for example.) In that case you would probably need an onload in there as well.
