Hello all,

I have a jsp page with an IFrame. The jsp page has a form A assigend to it and the IFrame has a Form B assigned to it.

Now, I need to use a property of Form A in the IFrame. Is it possible to do this? Thanks!

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "property", but you can certainly use JavaScript inside the IFrame to reference anything in the enclosing frame. Just use "parent" before the element. For example, If I want to get the value of a text input named "customerID" in the enclosing frame, reference it with parent.document.myForm.customerID.value.
