how do i redirect a parent page using an a href which is residing inside an iframe?


Recommended Posts

hi guys, i have a problem hope you can help me.. i have a site that uses an iframe to autorefresh the table inside it. i used an <a href> tag to redirect the page, but instead of redirecting the whole page to another site, it only reloads inside the iframe..


here is my code:


from my parent page:




<Iframe src="tabs/constable.php" width="990" height="600"></Iframe>



from my constable.php file inside the iframe:




<script type="text/javascript">

function followLink(o) {

var a = o.getElementsByTagName('a');

if (a.length > 0) {

document.location = a[0].href;






<table id="table">



<th scope="col" class="idnumber">ID Number</th>

<th scope="col" class="name">Name</th>

<th scope="col" class="gender">Gender</th>

<th scope="col" class="timedate">Date of Consultation</th>

<th scope="col" class="type">Student/Employee</th>

<th scope="col" class="type">annual/walkin</th>




<td colspan="6"></td>





$min = 0;

include '../init.php';


$quey1="//somequery here";





$row1 = mysql_num_rows($result);




$dd = "../info.php?pid=".$row['idnumbers']."&&nid=".$row['idnurse']."&&type=".$row['type'];


echo "<tr><td onclick='followLink(this);'><a href='".$dd."'></a>{$row['idnumbers']}</td>

<td onclick='followLink(this);'><a href='".$dd."'></a>{$row['name']}</td>

<td onclick='followLink(this);'><a href='".$dd."'></a>{$row['Sex']}</td>

<td onclick='followLink(this);'><a href='".$dd."'></a>{$row['date']}</td>

<td onclick='followLink(this);'><a href='".$dd."'></a>{$row['Occupation']}</td>

<td onclick='followLink(this);'><a href='".$dd."'></a>{$row['type']}</td></tr>";


echo' </table></br></br>';


include '../init.php';

$quey2="select count(*) from nurse where status = 'notdone'";







$rowcounter = $row['count(*)'];


if($rowcounter > 10)


echo '<form action = "next.php" method = "POST">';

echo ' <input type = "image" src="images/Next.png" name = "next" value = "Next">';

echo ' <input type = "hidden" name = "xx" value = "'.$min.'">';

echo ' <input type = "hidden" name = "gg" value = "patientonqueue">';

echo ' <input type = "hidden" name = "num" value = "'.$rowcounter.'">';

echo '</form>';


$eto = $rowcounter + 10;


if($rowcounter >= 10)


echo "<label name = 'dd'> 10 out of ".$rowcounter."</label>";
