Can I close a browser in ASP.Net 2.0 without resorting to any javascript?

I'm using Visual Web Developer Express.
I'm a competent VB6, ADO, ADO.Net & SQL programmer with a healthy dose of HTML, CSS and XML, but finding VB.Net a bit slow to get into.
I'm developing a web app for a customer. I have a pop up window which I want to close if the user presses the cancel button.

I know I can do this using the html/javascript solution of onclick="window.close".

But, as I'm trying to avoid learning yet another language, I'm sure there must be a pure VB.Net way of doing this!

No there is not.

.NET is a server side language.  It runs on the server.  You are trying to close a browser, which is part of the client machine.  You have to do that on the client.  Hence you have to use javascript or another client program (i.e. active X).

If you are designeing a web app you should be embracing learning javascript not avoiding it.  Otherwise your apps will always be amatuer and very basic.

Thanks.

I have now come to that conclusion too.

I wasn't supposed to be doing any of the web coding anyway - but hey, I'm getting paid for it!

Cheers
