Close popup after agent finishes running

Posted on 2010-11-25

Notes app for the Web. An action opens a new browser window (popup style), the user selects an option by clicking a link. The link calls a Javascript function that gets the window.opener to run an agent and then runs another agent itself. I would like the newly opened popup window to close once its agent has finished running.

If I do self.close() at the end of the Javascript Function, the agent will not run. I've tried putting
Print "[javascript:window.close();]"
at the end of my agent too, no go.

Does this make sense, any ideas?

Maybe you need to add, to the body-tage:

Other way: use a hidden Iframe to run the agents.
