Talk to the iframe from the parent:
document.getElementById("iframeId").formName.elementName.value = "foo";

Talk to the parent from the iframe
parent.formName.elementName.value = "bar";

i had tried the way you had said but iam getting the error like is null or not an object.

my page was designed like below:

in the body tag
i have an button which calls a javascript funtion
i have a iframe which has a form as a member to the iframe.I the form i had an text box.

what i want to do is when i click on the button in the javascript i need to validate the value in the textbox and then i want to submit the form to server side.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
