reloading a page into an open modaldialog is messy. Just putting a lin will open a new window not reload the dialog. You can do it this way though by having the dialog filled with an iframe that is then reloaded,eg

The page that opens the dialog
vReturnValue = window.showModalDialog('modal.htm')

<iframe name=iFrm height=100% width=100% src=modalIfrm.htm>

<input type=button onclick='window.location=""'>
