Hello, new .Net (using C#). I have a button event handler that I want to close the window (it's popup) when it's done doing some work and return to another page. How can I accomplish this??

I know how to close a window and return to the parent I came from in javascript, can I somehow in javascript call the event handler in the javascript before closing the window?

time sensitive issue for me, thanks in advance!!

Not directly, no.

But you can post back when the user clicks on a button and in the event handler for the button add a RegisterStartupScript.

Button_Click() {
  string scriptString = "<script>window.close();</script>";
  RegisterStartupScript( "startup", scriptString );
}

This will cause asp.net to emit the script before the closing tag of the <form> element, which will close the window as soon the browser parses that script.

Basically, the solution to your problem is to post back to the server and have the server either send a script to the client, or alternatively, leave a message on the client that the window needs to be closed.  If you prefer the second solution, it should look like this:

<head>
<script>
function pageLoad() {
  var checkboxCloseWindow = document.all[ 'CheckBoxCloseWindow' ];
  if( checkboxCloseWindow.checked ) window.close();
}
</script>
</head>
<body onLoad="pageLoad()">
<asp:CheckBox id="CheckBoxCloseWindow" runat="server" style="display:none;" Checked="False"></asp:CheckBox>
<asp:Button id="MyButton" runat="server" OnClick="MyButton_Click">Click Me</asp:Button>
</body>

and then on the server:
... MyButton_Click() {
  // if we want to close the window when the browser parses the response stream:
  CheckBoxCloseWindow.Checked = true;
}
