Depends on what is meant by "daughter" and "parent" windows. There
are two possibilities.
1. For a frameset containing frames or any window containing iframes, a
lower level frame can access its parent window via window.parent. So
Referencing a parent window's function from a child would look like
2. Every window (except modal dialogs) has a property called opener,
through which you can access the window that opened it, if any. This
opener is not really a "parent", however, in the same sense as the
nested frames have a parent. Referencing an opener window's function
from a child would look like this:
Once you have a window object, you can also access the window's global
variables, DOM content etc the same way.
