Hi,
  I am using IE. Iam opening a pop up from index.jsp. I want to close the parent window when I open child window. When I try to close parent with self.close()..it is showing a pop up with "DO you wan to close this window". Please let me know how can I prevent it using javascript. Please find the attached code for index.jsp.


Thank you

Did you try the other posts in that page or did you try the one at the top only?

I tried the top and below code.
<html>
<head></head>
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
function showLogin(){

	var strURL = "login.jsp";
	winPop = window.open(strURL,'name','height=375,width=415,left=150,top=200,toolbar=no,resizable=no,scrollbars=no');
	winPop.focus();
	window.close();

}
</script>
<body onload="window.opener='';showLogin()">

From what I can gather it is not possible due to security restrictions in IE. As I said in my initial post, I wasn't sure if it worked in later versions of IE. To be fair, I can understand why. If I had a load of tabs open in an IE window or Firefox window and then some page closed them all for me I would be pretty narked.

This isn't possible.
