I'm using the following script from
http://www.varnagiris.net/2009/04/11/ajax-feedback-form-using-jquery-boxy-plugin/

How can I make it close the window automatically after it receives the callback inside function(data){?



$(function() {

    /* set global variable for boxy window */

    var contactBoxy = null;

    /* what to do when click on contact us link */

    $('.contact_us').click(function(){

        var boxy_content;

        boxy_content += "<div style=\"width:300px; height:300px\"><form id=\"feedback\">";

        boxy_content += "<p>Subject<br /><input type=\"text\" name=\"subject\" id=\"subject\" size=\"41\" /></p><p>Your name and/or email:<br /><input type=\"text\" name=\"your_email\" size=\"41\" /></p><p>Comment:<br /><textarea name=\"comment\" id=\"comment\" cols=\"39\" rows=\"5\"></textarea></p><br /><input type=\"submit\" name=\"submit\" value=\"Send >>\" />";

        boxy_content += "</form></div>";

        contactBoxy = new Boxy(boxy_content, {

            title: "Send feedback",

            draggable: false,

            modal: true,

            behaviours: function(c) {

                c.find('#feedback').submit(function() {

                    Boxy.get(this).setContent("<div style=\"width: 300px; height: 300px\">Sending...</div>");

                    // submit form by ajax using post and send 3 values: subject, your_email, comment

                    $.post("feedback.php", { subject: c.find("input[name='subject']").val(), your_email: c.find("input[name='your_email']").val(), comment: c.find("#comment").val()},

                    function(data){

                        /*set boxy content to data from ajax call back*/

                        contactBoxy.setContent("<div style=\"width: 300px; height: 300px\">"+data+"</div>");

                    });

                    return false;

                });

            }

        });

        return false;

    });

});

Code behind the close button of the window (Boxy) is;

                        self.hide();
                        jQuery(document.body).unbind('keypress.boxy');

So you'll have to both hide and unbind the event for a clean exit.
