Hi Experts,

I have button on my page which has this code

$('#Button1').click(function() {
                location.reload();
            });

The problem is that in IE8-9 it prompts popup if I would close this tab.

Is there workaround this issue ?

Thanks.

What does the prompt say?
prompts popup if I would close this tab
Are you reloading the page or closing it?

Instead of location.reload() try
window.location.href = window.location.href

Gary,

Same thing. "The page you are viewing is trying to close this tab. Would like to close or continue?"

That's odd....

Do you have any other javascript firing on page unload?

Does leakims example give you the same alert?

It's nothing to do with the page you are reloading, its the child windows closing that is firing the alert.

That's not really an answer...
What you would need to do is close the child windows in the button click code, then you shouldn't get any alerts.
