ASP.NET  (closing popup window & passing session variable)

I have an .aspx page (main.aspx) with a button that opens up a popup window (popup.aspx) using the code below.

Private Sub btnOK_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnOK.Click

            Dim popupScript As String = "<script language='javascript'>" & _
             "window.open('popup.aspx', 'CustomPopUp', " & _
             "'width=640, height=470, menubar=no, resizable=no, scrollbars=no')" & _
             "</script>"
            RegisterStartupScript("PopupScript", popupScript)
End Sub

Here is my question.

The popup window is a survey where the user answers some questions. (True/False & multiple choice). I have some code that builds a string of characters based upon the responses. String consists of 1's, 2's 3's, & 4's and is held in a session variable.

When the survey is complete, I would like to close window (popup.aspx) and pass this session variable back to (main.aspx).

Any suggestions or answers on the best way to do this?

Thanks,
Mike

YZlat,

Thanks for your help, for some reason this is not working though.

// This is what I have in page OnScreen2.aspx which is the PopUp window:

<HTML>
  <HEAD>
    <title>Test Presentation</title>
   
    <SCRIPT language="javascript">
      function loadinparent(url, closeSelf)
      {
       self.opener.location = url;
       if(closeSelf)self.close();
      }
     </SCRIPT>
</HEAD>

In the body I have:
<ASP:BUTTON id="btnSSupervisor" runat="server" text="Supervisor"></ASP:BUTTON>

In codeBehind page (OnScreen2.aspx.vb) I have this

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    btnESupervisor.Attributes.Add("onclick", "javascript:loadinparent('OnScreen.aspx'), this);")
    ' actual code automatically underlines     _______________________________________  this part here
End Sub

// OnScreen.aspx is the main window that opens the PopUp window...

The only thing that seems to  happen when I click on btnESupervisor is the screen refreshes but nothing else?
Any ideas on what I may be doing wrong here?

Thanks again,
Mike
