From what I understand, the function you want to call needs to be a child (spawned from the page with the function on it) of the calling page.

Then I think you do: parent.functionName();

you could try cutting and pasting all of your functions and variables into one external .js file, and adding <script src="filename.js"></script> into the head of every page, that way you can access any script on your whole website on every page

Sorry i did not explained very well what i want to do.

For example, i have page1 i page2.php. On the 2nd page i have div container which i use for loading external pages by calling a simple function javascript:page(3) . In this case this function loads some 3rd page.

When i click on some link on page1.php i want to open page2.php with loaded 3rd page into div container.

That is my problem.How can i call function on page2.php from simple link on page1.php. Btw function is in external .js file.

Tnx again
