Hi Carl,

The window is opened from another page and on click of a close button i wrote the following code:
(The click button is on the modal window page)

private void Button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
                string s1 = "<script>window.close();</script>";

You might be better trying to add the code as a client-side click event on the button:

    <asp:Button runat="server" ID="Button1" onclick="javascript:window.close();" />

Can you post the definition of your Button as you have it now ? And also the line that is causing the compile error ?

<asp:Button id="Button1" style="Z-INDEX: 105; LEFT: 224px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 216px" runat="server"
                        Width="96px" Text="Close" onclick="javascript:window.close();"></asp:Button>

And the highlighted line is the first line:

with same error CS1026 ) Expected.

I think I got the solution:

this.Button1.Attributes.Add("onclick", "window.close(); return false;");

This works fine for me.
