OK I've spend way too much time trying to figure this out and now I need some help!

I open a PopUp Window with a Crystal Report:
        Dim PopUpScript As String = "<script language='javascript'>" + "window.open('CrystalReportViewer.aspx?SiteID=" & ddl_Sites.SelectedValue & "&ClientID=" & ddl_Clients.SelectedValue & "&BDate=" & txt_StartDate.Text & "&EDate=" & txt_EndDate.Text & "&Status=" & ddl_Status.SelectedValue & "&Type=" & ddl_LockboxType.SelectedValue & "'" & ",'','width=1000px,height=800px, status=yes, resizable=yes, scrollbars=yes, toolbar=yes,location=yes,menubar=yes').focus();</script>"
        Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType(), "PopUpWindow", PopUpScript, False)


Then I have a button on the PopUp to close the window:
    Protected Sub cmd_ClosePage_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        CrystalReportSource.Dispose()
        SQLDataSource.Dispose()

        Dim CloseWindowScript As String = "<script language='javascript'>" + "window.close();</script>"
        Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType(), "CloseWindow", CloseWindowScript, False)
    End Sub

This doesn't work...it clears out the Crystal Report but the window is still open with my buttons at the top hit close again nothing???

Thanks,
Mark

Are you saying when you close the Crystal window you want the app the terminate or that the close button on the app no longer works?

If all you need to do is close the window when the button is clicked, do not use code behind. Add your javascript to the button's client-side onclick event:
<button>.Attributes.Add("onclick", "window.close();")

Are you clicking the close button shown or the close/X in the report window?

Close Button
If I click the X then YES the window disappears...I want the same affect with the Close Button.

Remove the disposes.... or move them below last line...
Replace false at end with true...
Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType(), "CloseWindow", CloseWindowScript, False)

Oh and your closewindowscript just needs to be "Window.Close()"

OK, after about 6 hours of working on this taking your suggestions and google...I figured it out!

Instead of Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript
I needed this:

ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Me, Me.GetType(), "CloseWindow", "window.close();", True)

ScriptManager NOT Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript!

Finally!!!

Thanks for you help!

Correction...I needed to have a Javascript Function on the page and call it using the ScriptManager:

Call:
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Me, Me.GetType(), "CloseWindow", "closeWindow();", True)

Function:
function closeWindow()
{
     window.close();
}
