hi  - if you mouseover a thumb on this page:

http://ctemps.cjehost.com/subgallery_4column_with.php

you'll see my modal window - underneath the artwork you'll see a link that says "view larger" - i need this to close the modal window AND redirect to another webpage on the site.  

how can i accomplish this?

like this?
main.html
<script type="text/javascript">
 
function openModal(){
var returnVal = window.showModalDialog('showModalDialog.html');
alert("returnVal : " + returnVal);
window.location.href=returnVal;
 
}
 
</script>
 
<a href="#" onclick="openModal();">openModal()</a>
 
 
 
 
 
 
modal window
 
<html>
<head>
<title>Modal Dialog</title>
</head>
      <body >
            <a href="http://www.google.com"  onmousedown="window.returnValue = this.href;window.close();;">Click here</a>
      </body>

wow - just using the example code you provided works but when i actually plug it into the real webpage the window.close part does not. so, it's going to google.com but in the modal window.

check it out here (click on either of the two links under the picture):

http://ctemps.cjehost.com/subgallery_4column_with_test.php

here's the code at the top of my main page & modal window:


main page:
<script type="text/javascript" lang="javascript">
var openMyModal = function(source)
{
	modalWindow.windowId = "myModal";
	modalWindow.width = 575;
	modalWindow.height = 500;
	modalWindow.content = "<iframe width='575' height='500' frameborder='0' scrolling='no' allowtransparency='true' src='" + source + "'>&lt/iframe>";
	modalWindow.open();
};	
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">
 
function openModal(){
var returnVal = window.showModalDialog('modal.php');
window.location.href=returnVal;
 
}
 
</script>
 
modal window:(modal.php)
 
<a href="http://www.google.com"  onmousedown="window.returnValue = this.href;modalWindow.close();">view larger</a> | <a href="http://www.google.com"  onmousedown="window.returnValue = this.href;modalWindow.close();">back to gallery</a>
