showing facebox on different frame

Hello there,

Is it possible to display a facebox window on a different frame? I mean I have framesets in my page and when I click on a button on a frame I want contents of a URL to be shown on a facebox which gets rendered on a different frame.

On clicking the button I have a javascript function called and after getting some information I call this-

But the problem is the facebox gets open on the same frame. I can not figure out how to specify target frame here...

Thanks for any help...

The code for JQuery and the Plugin needs to be in that frame.
