hallo.. just a question... I've a script that closes a window after having runned a swf file.... the browser asks me if I want the application can close the window... is it possible not to have this confirm?? I want the window be closed without prompting me for confirmation....

thank you.....

Try open that window using JavaScript. If you open that window with window.open() function, window.close() function will close it without promt. I think self.close will do the same.

thanks for your answer,but it does not work...
I paste here the script so that you can help me....

<script language="JavaScript">
function launchwin(){
newwin = window.open("","flashcamwin","fullscreen=1,scrollbars=1")
var htmlString=.......

here there's the definition of the flash file that will be loaded.... then the scripts finishes as it follows....


and this is the body...... <BODY onLoad="launchwin()"></BODY>

????? what can I do?

I had the same problem and this is how I solved it...

May not be the best way.

I open up a second window (full screen size) - most people wouldn't even notice that a new window has opened.
This page shows whatever was requested.

The page in the new window has a link "close" which runs the javascript onclick="window.close()"

Like i said maybe not what you're after but it works cleanly!

This is cool.


<title>Self closing - No warning</title>
<script language="javascript">
var i = 0;

function closeMe() {
document.mainForm.myTime.value = 7-i;
if(i==7) { // wait five seconds
window.opener = top;

<form name="mainForm">
<font face="Arial, Helvetica, Sans-Serif" size="2">This window will close in
<input type="text" name="myTime" size=2> <font face="Arial, Helvetica, Sans-Serif" size="2">seconds.
<script language="javascript">

In the form section, simply place your content. Enjoy.
