Open Child Window/Insert Information/Refresh Parent window

Hello, I click on a button that opens a small child window to enter a comment into a <TextArea>  I then hit submit which goes to the insert.cfm page.  I have it saying.. "thank you, your information has been entered" with a "Close" Button under it.

What I would like it to do is  when you click the close button(which obviously closes the child window). I would like it to refresh the parent page(a framed page) so that the comment can now be viewable...

So all i am looking for is a way to refresh the page after closing the child window... Everything else works great.

THanks

create a javascript function then call it from the close button.

<script language="javascript">
function reloadParent(){
window.opener.location.reload();
window.self.close()
}
</script>

<input type="button" name="button" value="Close" onClick="reloadParent()">

hope this helps

Hi,

I have to do the same thing but with a little variation. This is outline of my code.

This is the pop-window
<html>
<head>
<title>Pop-Up to insert new employee</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

<body>      
<cfif not isdefined("form.submit")>
<form action="act_cntrEmployees.cfm" method="post">

<!--- Here I have all the textboxes for the user to fill the reqd information --->

<INPUT type="submit" NAME="submit" VALUE="submit">

</form>
<cfelse>

<!--- SQL Query to insert the record --->

</cfif>

In the parent page I have listed all the employees and provided and button to open a pop-up for inserting a new employee.

I want to update the database with what user have entered, close the pop-window and then refresh the parent.

Any help would be appreciated.
