jQuery .ready in a dynamically inserted iframe

We are using jQuery thickbox to dynamically display an iframe when someone clicks on a picture. In this iframe, we are using galleria a javascript library to display multiple pictures.

The problem seems to be that $(document).ready in the iframe seems to be fired too soon and the iframe content isn’t even loaded yet, so galleria code is not applied properly on the DOM elements. $(document).ready seems to use the iframe parent ready state to decide if the iframe is ready.

If we extract the function called by document ready in a separate function and call it after a timeout of 100¬†ms. It works, but we can’t take the chance in production with a slow computer.

$(document).ready(function() { setTimeout(ApplyGalleria, 100); });

My question: which jQuery event should we bind to to be able to execute our code when the dynamic iframe is ready and not just it’s a parent?
