how Close Bootstrap modal from inside iframe



Page which opens Twitter Bootstrap Modal with iframe inside:

<div id="iframeModal" class="modal hide fade" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="myModalLabel" aria-hidden="true">
    <div class="modal-header">
        <button type="button" class="btn btn-danger pull-right" data-dismiss="modal" aria-hidden="true">Close</button>
        <div class="clearfix"></div>
    <div class="modal-body">
        <iframe src="iframe-modal.html"></iframe> 
    <div class="modal-footer">

And I am looking for a way to close this modal from inside the iframe.
Ex. clicking a link inside the iframe-modal.html to close the modal.
What I have tried, but non successful:

    $('#iframeModal', window.parent.document).modal('hide');
    $('#iframeModal', top.document).modal('hide');





You can always create a globally accessible function which closes the Bootstrap modal window.


window.closeModal = function(){

Then from the iframe, call it using:
