I am opening up a pop up from a page and then from the popup I am calling a javascript function from the opening page. Is there a way to check to see if the function exist and if not, to close the popup without displaying any errors?

I am calling the the funtion from my code behind in the popup window as such:
  RegisterStartupScript("GroupManagement", "<script language='javascript'>window.opener.GroupInfoDDL(); window.focus()</script>")

Perfect. Thanks very much. Do you think this will be cross browser compatible? Thanks.

Yes.  I don't think there will be a problem with it, because it doesn't use anything browser specific that I know of.
