Update window behind lightbox.js window when lightbox.js window is closed

On my site I am using lightbox.js to open other urls on my site in a window above where the url is linked. The user enters in data, clicks a asp.net button, the data is updated and the window closes. Is there anyway to update the page that the lightbox window was opened on top of from the lightbox window?

Where would I put that at?

I tried using the following line of code at the end of the button click event from the child page and it didnt refresh the parent page, any ideas?

ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(GetType(),"script","window.parent.refresh();", true);

Try

ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(),"script","window.opener.document.forms[0].submit();", true);

Hum, very strange.

Try this instead
Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartUpScript(this.GetType(),"close","window.opener.location.reload(true);self.close();");

I assume that you're executing all code i gave before you send the close window command.
