Modal Dialog Refresh

Hi all,

ASP.NET using

I have a member list. When the user clicks no a member name I am showing the member details in a modal dialog box (window.showModalDialog). When the Administrator clicks on the member name; in the modal dialog box, I have a drop down where the Admin can change the status of the member.  The dropdown does the post back but instead of refreshing the modal dialog, a new browser window is opened.

How can I refresh the dialog box without the pesky new browser window?

Good luck!
Simply add base tag in <HEAD> tag, like so

            <base target="_self">
<!-- html tags continue here... -->
