ASP .net refresh parent window

Dear experts,

In the parent form, I have a html control:
<INPUT onclick="window.open('/frmSOP_SM_UAC.aspx','SMUAC','width=500, height=650, resizable=yes,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no')"
type="button" value="Add/ Revise Manager Data">

that opens another page in a separate window( the child window).
How to refresh the content of the parent window by clicking on a button on the child form?

Thanks for helping

<asp:button runat="server" onServerClick="testFn" />


Then try this....

<script language="C#" runat="server">

     void testFn()
     {
           String str="opener.location.href=opener.location.href";
           RegisterClientScriptBolck("test",str);
     
     }
      
</script>

Do opener.location.reload(); in a function or ie put this in the code of the opened window:

<input type="button" onClick="opener.location.reload();">

But this only applies to html control. How about web control?

I put the code in the unload method for the page
<body onunload="opener.location.reload();">

When I close the browser, it dosen't seem to reload the parent window. ( I put a break point in the page_load method and it is not stepping in)
Any ideas?

Hi

reload() fn display a "page refresh window" if there is a "form submit" in the parent window...

So it is better to use...


<input type="button" onClick="opener.location.href=opener.location.href;">

or

<input type="button" onClick="opener.location.replace(opener.location);">

Ok, I got it, I should put it under the onbeforeunload event instead of onunload.
