i installed this script http://jquery.com/demo/thickbox/
and it looks like this:
http://ilmc.brinkster.net/comersus/crm/thickbox/main.htm
(using iframe inside the window)

the code to close this open iframe is onclick="self.parent.tb_remove();"
(if you paste it from inside the iframe)

now, i got a change password page that opens inside this window...when the user wrote his new pasword and got a response.write "password changed"...i want that after few seconds this window will be cose(timeout and self.parent.tb_remove();") but main problem is how when this page closes to refresh the main page too...

i realy don;t know if it doable but i will hope someone help:)
