View Full Version : Open window & Refresh parent window?

Hi Guys,

I am a little stuck as to how to open a new window & refresh the parent window using javascript.

1. User clicks link which opens a new window
2. Upon clicking the link the parent window is refreshed.
3. The user is able to click a link in the window that opened (close window)

I have tried using this to refresh the window in the page that opens:

<a href=\"javascript:top.close();top.opener.location.reload();\" class=headings title='continue shopping'>Continue Shopping</A>

And this to open the window:


Apart from not refreshing as soon as the window is opened (obviously), I have received warnings from the browser saying that the webpage is tryign to close the window.

Can anyone possibly help with this?

I just re-read my post, I dont think I explained my situation too well.

I am basically after the javascript code that will allow me to open a new window (on page 1) using a link and at the same it opens a new window (page2) it refreshes page1.

Then on page 2 I want a link to be able to close page2 so the user can return to page1.

Can anyone possibly help ?
