Controller redirect_to to leave iframe

Inside an iframe, I want the controller to redirect_to to the parent
(i.e. target =’_parent’).
Any ideas?
(Everything I’ve tried- via redirect_to - just keeps it inside the
iframe)

i don’t think you can do this server side - you need to set the right
target attribute etc on the link and so on.

I used a quick workaround. Replace the redirect_to with:

render :text => “window.parent.document.location.href = ‘/myloc’;</
script>”

I think this works better:

thanks.
Seems like I may have to render some JS in the controller to call the
parent.
