Calling on $('#<domID>') within an iFrame fails

I'm developing a Facebook app at the moment using jQuery 1.6. The facebook app interphace reequires that your app runs within an iFrame on facebook.

In this case, jQuery within the iframe fails to get DOM elements within the iFrame using $('#<domID>'), it returns null. My guess is that jQuery by default searches for dom elements at the parent level/top frame.


<html> <head></title>This is facebook</title></head> <body> <iframe src="http://example.com/yourapp.html">



<title>My App</title> <script type="text/javascript">

$.checkDom = function() {

alert($('#someobj')); NULL



</head> <body>

<input type="text" id="someobj" value="hello" onclick="$.checkDom()" />



</iframe> </body> </html>

would help if you actually included jQuery in your iframe doc
