What is an AJAX page?  AJAX is used to connect to the server on a page that is already open.

AJAX doesn't normally generate pages, it is used to modify the page that it is being used in.  I don't know what you're doing.

In the example at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ajaxcontent.htm , they loading a div with external content.  Although they are saying 'page', it's not a complete page.  Basically, to get rid of the content, you load some other content even if it's just a blank space.  You could also just set the display to 'none'.

greetings smares323, I looked at the code in the ajaxcode.txt , and that looks like some older code to a very simple AJAX Exchange, the question you have "close an open Ajax page", has noting to do with AJAX, and is just about using javascript.
this javascript -
document.getElementById("contentarea").innerHTML = "";

would get rid of the content that was loaded into that DIV by AJAX, however, there is no where on that page to place this javascript and have any correct functioning, or application to use that code.

here is a button that may work if you place it on the page-
<button onclick='document.getElementById("contentarea").innerHTML = "";'>Close Page</button>

not sure about what you are trying to do, but I see no reason to erase that DIV of content from AJAX, since there does not seem any way to do anything else in that code for that DIV to be used any other way.
