Hey,

   Does anybody know how to close ASP.NET .aspx web page using C# code.

   I have a .aspx popup that I want to close after finishing work. Something like window.close() in javascript. Does c# have anything like this?

  Thanks.

Hi payal,
how are you... been a long time , haan ??...  
Well,  closing a window is a Client-Side operation.... so you can't do it from server side code. Have to use client side code (use javascript)...
You see, closing or starting any application in client computer is not possible from server side code (otherwise creating VIRUS would be far easier). Usually people go for javascript for these kind of client side operations.

I would rather use, say , a Button...  and in page_Load...
        Button1.Attributes.Add("OnClick", "javascript:self.close()")

Hey Baan,

   How are ya? yeah, long time since the last email.

   yes i came to know that yesterday when I was looking on the net after posting this question here. I got the code with Response.write and wrtie the javascript code as part of its argument. but that closes the window before my job is done. so there is a problem there and it doesnt launch the animated gif image that shows processing.

   Baan, I was wondering how to expedia and orbitz and other online reservation sites do this. You must have seen that when we select the options and hit search another page open up which shows processing and when it has results the window closes itself. I wanted to do something like that.

ok.. add attribute to the button in the Page_Load...

Button1.Attributes.Add("OnClick", "javascript:window.open('PopUpWindow.aspx','MyPopUp','width=440,height=480,left=270,top=100')")

hey,

   Thank you for sending all those links. Now I know the problem in my code and have solved it partially.

        The problem is because the server is processing and I have put the thread to sleep, the animated gif doesnt show up on the page. It simply hangs. And if I refresh that page, then my whole program functionality is messed up there after.

        What option do I have?

 Well, it seems that we are not continuing with this idea as popup blocker blocks the window and the work is not done therefore. Thanks for the help Baan.
