How to read the text of an IFRAME

I used IFRAME to write the sometext in a HTML page. I want to read that text from that IFRAME and used it at other place.

Can any one tell me the code to read that text from an IFRAME.

Well assuming the frames are both populated from the same web domain and use the same protocol then you should be able to grab the document,

var doc = top.frames["framebname"].document
Then use regular DHTML:

alert(doc.body.substr(0, 100));
