No rocket science there. Unfortunately IE (have to use it. No other choice) pops us a confirmation dialog asking if the web page is allowed to close itself. I was under the impression a web page could close itself but as I type this I realize this might be a good thing since anyone could then close a browser window at will if they placed similar code somewhere in their page or, more probable, in someones elses page maliciously.
I have a HTML and I am opening another link in a separate window using window.open() . The child window is something like 'http://yahoo.com' which is out side html. I need to refresh the parent window when the child window is closed.
- I have a button on my Flash site that opens an HTML page in a popup window. In Flash, I open the new window using Actiosnscript 2.0:
- Within the popup window are links to other HTML pages. They all open in the same window. I've been using the following to create the links in Dreamweaver:
- On each page, I have a "Return to Main Menu" button that should close the popup window. To do this, I have been using:
- The problem is that it works differently in each browser, and I can't even get it to consistently close the window in most browsers:
Internet Explorer = popup message appears, asking "Are you sure you want to close this window?" or something similar; window closes after clicking "Yes."
Safari = Only closes if I'm on the original HTML page. If I click on any of the other links (note that these all open in the same window), those pages' "Return to Main Menu" buttons cease to work. However, if I keep clicking "Back" until I get to the original page, it closes.
Opera = Button actually works for each page.
Firefox & Chrome = Does not close the window at all.
I looked into it and saw that others have used a window.opener to solve similar issues. But, since my popup window is opened using Flash/AS2, I need to find a way around it.
I've tried preceding "window.close()" with "window.opener=null" (i.e. -onClick="window.opener=null; window.close()"), but I don't think I'm doing it right because it still doesn't work.
I've also seen others use codes that involve functions and variables, but it is beyond my current coding knowledge to implement this. Like I said, I'm sort of new at this.
I need a script that will open a new window (popup / new link) in a specific size, but will also close the old window (where the popup came from). I know the popup window is easy but finding a work-able close window script as the new window is opened is impossible!!
I have parent page with 10 child window and i want to close all child window when click on close session button on parent but first i need to check whether any child window open or not after that action should be done for close the child window.
I urgently need a piece of JS that will close the window when a user clicks a button. Using window.close works but it gives an alert box to ask the user if they want to close the window. Is there a way around this?
I have created a form. Within the form is a button to close the window on click and to validate as well. The close window works when it is a stand alone, but it does not work when it is embedded with the other code. Here is the code I am currently using:
This closes a window in IE, but in FireFox an odd thing happens. I have to mouseout of something before it closes. If I click the button and then leave the mouse sitting there, above the button, then nothing happens in FireFox. It's as if the code is broken.
I did originally have window.blur in their, instead of parent.focus. But I took it out a while ago and did shift-refresh in FireFox.
Observations: Error Msg: "progress is undefined". I have observed that after form submission the 'if' statement in the 'close child window' code fails because the handle 'progress' appears to have no value. My guess is that on form submission the handle 'progress' looses its' value because the action for the form is to reload itself. The 'if' staement does execute because I have placed an 'alert' statement just prior to it an the 'alert' executed appropriately.
If I try to open the window after submitting the form, the page doesn't open until after the file has been uploaded, which defeats the purpose.
Question: How do I close the window after the form has been submitted?
Thanks for your help! Irvin. ________________

What I'd like to add is add a line of code that will close the calling parent window (right now I make it visible by resizing it and clicking on a close link). I'll even settle for having to confirm the closure but, the ultimate would be that it would close by itself. Code:
