I have a small php file that runs inside of a frame. Is there any way that i can do a CTRL-F5 type of refresh and reload the whole browser window. I've tried parent.location.reload(true), location.reload(), and quite a few others. The page doesnt seem to want to redirect. If i do a CTRL-F5 on my keyboard it reloads fine. Any help is much appreciated.
$SiteLink = "/home/wwwnhs/public_html/userfiles/image/";
if (isset($_GET['file']))
{
	$sDeleteFileName = $_GET['file'];
	$sDeleteFileName = $SiteLink.$sDeleteFileName;
	if (file_exists($sDeleteFileName)) {
			unlink($sDeleteFileName);
			/*********************************
			* Need Reload Function HERE!!!!! *
			*********************************/

			//echo "<br />File ".$sDeleteFileName. " Exists!";
	}
	else {
		echo "<br />File - ".$sDeleteFileName." Does not Exist!";	
	}
}
else {
	echo "<br />File Variable Not Set!!!!";
}

You can't do a Refresh function in PHP because it runs on the server and it's done running by the time you see the page.  Does the PHP create a full web page inside the iframe?  If it does, you could do a periodic refresh with a 'meta' tag.  Then you'd have to rewrite the tag every time with a slightly different query string to make sure it isn't just reloaded from cache.

Opps, seems I didn't read your question correctly. you're in a  iframe...

You could output something like this

top.window.location.reload();

That needs to be in javascript tags

<script type="text/javascript">
top.window.location.reload();
</script>

In the frame, do a javascript:

window.parent.location.href='http://google.com';

you can do this even in a onclick="" event if you want, or just <script>window.parent.location.href='http://google.ro';</script> to refresh as soon as it's loaded

forgot this.

replace
/*********************************
* Need Reload Function HERE!!!!! *
*********************************/

with
echo "
<script type='text/javascript'>
window.parent.location.href='http://THE_URL_YOU_WANT';
</script>
";

and the page will refresh automatically.
