Hey, I have a pop-window that I would like to change the url of its parent when I close the pop-up.

this is what I have so far but it's not working:


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">



function loadinparent(url, closeSelf){
      self.opener.location = url;
      if(closeSelf) self.close();
      }


</SCRIPT>


<BODY BGCOLOR=#FFFFFF background="images/bg.gif" LEFTMARGIN=0 TOPMARGIN=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0 onUnLoad="loadinparent('location.html', true);">


help?

this didn't work:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
function loadinparent()
{
      opener.document.location = 'http://www.yahoo.com'
      }

//-->
</SCRIPT>

<BODY BGCOLOR=#FFFFFF background="images/bg.gif" LEFTMARGIN=0 TOPMARGIN=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0 onUnLoad="loadinparent();">
