I am trying to achieve following.
1. A link on a parent page will open a new child pop-up.
2. In child pop-up, user enters some data and click save.
3. A data will be saved to databse and pop-up would be closed. A main parent window would be refreshed and conetents entered in a child pop-up would be displayed on a parent page.

I tried following:
btnClose.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:opener.location.reload(true);self.close();");

Problem is when I click the close button of popup window, it asks whether to resend or cancel the request to parent page. Which i want to avoid.

Any solution?

Thanks in avance

try opener.location = opener.location instead as I think that will create a new request rather then post the form again.

Solution 2

I added the following in parent page which will be called when the popup window is closed, which in turn populates the grid with the data added from the popup window

<asp:button id="btnHidden" runat="Server" style="display:none" onclick="btnHidden_Click" xmlns:asp="#unknown" />

Javascript code in popup window
function RefreshParent() {

this solves all my problem
