    Window.frames

    Summary

    Returns the window itself, which is an array-like object, listing the direct sub-frames of the current window.

    Syntax

    frameList = window.frames;
    
    • frameList is a list of frame objects. It is similar to an array in that it has a length property and its items can be accessed using the [i] notation.
    • frameList === window evaluates to true.
    • Each item in the window.frames pseudo-array represents the window object corresponding to the given <frame>'s or <iframe>'s content, not the (i)frame DOM element (i.e., window.frames[ 0 ] is the same thing as document.getElementsByTagName( "iframe" )[ 0 ].contentWindow).
    • For more details about the returned value, refer to this thread on mozilla.dev.platform.

    Example

    var frames = window.frames; // or // var frames = window.parent.frames;
    for (var i = 0; i < frames.length; i++) { 
      // do something with each subframe as frames[i]
      frames[i].document.body.style.background = "red";
    }
