re Item 1:  Do you want to close the current instance of the browser AND open the separate URL outlined in part 2 of your question?

re Item 2:  Add a computed text field called $$Return which holds the URL that should be opened.  Look at [Customizing "Form processed" confirmation for the Web] in the Domino Designer help database for a full usage description and examples.

hi DButler,

in Item 1: I want the instance of the window to be closed, after saving the document. I want do this because, I am openning a new pop-up window and showing a form in it. On clicking the submit button of that form, it should save the document and close window instance.

I have used java script in the onclick event of the submit button as follows:-

document._NewTopicForm.submit();
window.close()

This results in the closing of the window, but the document is not saved.

If i remove window.close(), then the document is saved. But i want to close it also.

Any answers???

Dunno if it will work but I'd try,
adding a web-query-save agent.....
leave your page submit as:
document._NewTopicForm.submit();
                     
then in the agent do a:

print "<script> window.close() </script>"
or something like that....

Does this help?

Hi sam

web query save agent is always triggers before saving the document. I want my document to be saved and then close the window.

Hi Amit

In the $$Return use this function, it will close the current doc and open new window with new url

Here is the sample
"[" +

'<script language="javascript">' +

"close();" +

'window.open("//www.yahoo.com");' +

"</Script>" +

"["


PS: As a security feature, the browser will prompt the user to close the window.

Good Luck

Hi Amit

If you wan't to close the form and open a new url, you can use this too. This avoids opening a new window and excludes the prompt messages too. Hope this is handy

Use this in $$Return field:

"<script language=\"javascript\">" +

"window.location.href= \"//www.yahoo.com\";" +

"</Script>"

Good Luck
