I have the following code to close a browser window when clicked on, I am using chrome but it is not doing anything.

<input name="Btnclose" type="button" class="bodytext" id="Btncancel" onClick="parent.window.close()" value="    Close    ">

Anything missing ?

I'm not conversant with Chrome's security settings, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were a setting to either disable javascript, or to prevent this type of javascript from running.

Does the code work in other browsers?

Does the code work with Chrome on other machines?

is this browser window a child window or just the main window? if it's just the main window(), try just doing window.close()

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

JavaScript is not allowed to close a window it did not open.

Click the X
Or in the window itself run self.close()

Can you describe what this is for and how it is opened in the first place?  Is this a pop up or a modal?
