child location reload problem

Hi Experts,

getting a little insane here - I open a popup using this (I believe are completely basic) javascript code:
function OpenResListWindow(){
var List;
	List = window.open('MCalInsertResDraftList.asp', 'formpopup', 'width=300,height=800,location=0,menubar=0, titlebar=0,resizeable=no,scrollbars=no,top=0');
	List.location.reload(true);

}

Open in new window

and i need the List to reload immediately in order to update with the latest data from the server, but it either do not refresh at all or the popup window is just blank.

I have been trying a lot of combinations, but so far with no luck.

Any suggestions?

best regards
MortenWB

If the first time you call the window open the page is blank then you should check the URL of your opened page (MCalInsertResDraftList.asp)

Otherwise, you could try this example

NOTE: For security reasons, you cannot control navigation in a popup window if it's not in the same host of the parent window (you cannot open a window to a different site and try to control reload page in this window)
