Whenever you want your parent form to be refreshed like clickking on a close link


use like this

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
function refreshParent()
{
if (opener && !opener.closed) opener.location.reload(true);
self.close();
}
</script>

<a href="javascript:refreshParent();">Close Me </a>

If you've already got the rest working, then in the body tag of the child:

<body onunload="opener.document.yourform.submit();">

Change "yourform" to whatever you called your form in the parent.
