In above link we have below code

window.showModalDialog(srcFile, obj, winFeatures);

In this code, we can send obj as an array.

I am using ASP.Net button. I would prefer to keep it that way.Since I have to implement some functionality on code behind of this button.
I opening my pop up using a method below

PARENT window code to open child window
Public Shared Sub OpenPopUp(ByVal response As HttpResponse, ByVal url As String, ByVal target As String, ByVal windowFeatures As String)
        If (String.IsNullOrEmpty(target) OrElse target.Equals("_self", StringComparison.OrdinalIgnoreCase)) AndAlso String.IsNullOrEmpty(windowFeatures) Then
            response.Redirect(url)
        Else
            Dim page As Page = CType(HttpContext.Current.Handler, Page)
            If page Is Nothing Then
                Throw New InvalidOperationException("Cannot redirect to new window outside Page context.")
            End If
            url = page.ResolveClientUrl(url)
            Dim script As String
            If (Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(windowFeatures)) Then
                script = "window.open(""{0}"", ""{1}"", ""{2}"");"
            Else
                script = "window.open(""{0}"", ""{1}"");"
            End If
            script = String.Format(script, url, target, windowFeatures)
            ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(page, GetType(Page), "Redirect", script, True)
        End If
    End Sub

Protected Sub lBtn_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles lBtn.Click
            OpenPopUp("Child.aspx", "recipients", "width=800,height=700,status=0,menubar=1,toolbar=0,location=0,scrollbars=0")
      End Sub

It is working perfectly fine.
I do not have any issue with this code. I would prefer to keep it this way.

CHILD window code

Protected Sub btnSave_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles btnSave.Click
       /// CODE
              Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType(), "close", "Done();", True)          
      End Sub

ASPX code

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
        function Done() {
            window.close();
        }
        </script>
Now my question is how do I refresh my Parent window when my child window is closed?

Try the following


http://wiki.asp.net/page.aspx/282/passing-value-from-popup-window-to-parent-form39s-textbox/


The main thing is this line
window.opener.document.getElementById("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_TextBox2").value = val;

it accesses the "Opener" of current window which is the parent window and sets value of a textbox in parent window.
