Closing window after successful data processing

Hi all,

At some point I open new window (window.open) for user to fill in some fields. When form submits data is proccessed by some asp. Is there a way I can close that window and return back to "opener" on successful data processing?
I guess this should be somehow done by processing asp?

Use a function that does the submit, then closes the window, e.g.

<script language="javascript">
  function DoSubmit() {
    document.YourForm.submit();
    self.close();
  }
</script>

<form name="YourForm" onSubmit="DoSubmit()">
...
</form>

Try this

<%

ASP to process the data.

strClose = "onLoad=window.close();"

%>

<body <%= strClose %>>

There are two ways.

1. In the asp page that updates the database - at the end use a page redirect:

<%Response.Redirect("page.asp")%>

2. In the asp page, you can close it with jscript below your asp:

<Html>
<Head>
<Script language="JavaScript">
  window.close();
</Script>
</Head>
<Body>
</Body>
</Html>

Hope it helped.

<!-- Your submit Page-->

<%
'' Collect all the data here....
'' Perform insert /update / delete operation
   response.redirect("PreviousPage.asp")    
%>

this is better idea ..I agree with csheepers there is no need to go for javascript..

the best part is that you can even send message in query
string regarding success or faliure of operation and
print it in the previous page...
