Hello Experts,
In ASP.NET and C#, I am trying to close a window if there is no error in the form.  If error exists, I don't want to close it.  Is there a way?

Thank you in advance.

air code in C#:

if(NoErrorOnForm())
  this.Close();

Should close the form running the above code.  You would need to code the NoErrorOnForm function yourself to check for an error, it should return true if everything was OK.

Hello AndyAinscow,
Thank you for your reply.  I have btnModify_Click event.  Inside it I do all kind of validations.  I want to close the form if everything is valid.  Otherwise I want to leave the form as it is.  I have already tried this.Close().  But it does not compile.

Thank you!

>>But it does not compile.

What is the compile error?  Can you post the code and indicate the line(s) the compiler objects to.

Error      92      'ProjectName.ProgramName' does not contain a definition for 'Close' and no extension method 'Close' accepting a first argument of type 'ProjectName.ProgramName' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

OK, no problems.
Are you running this code on a form - Close is a method a Form would have built in (but not some other class in general).

Please post the code - that compile error doesn't make sense

Andy,
Due to strict company policy in place, I will not be able to post my code.  If you have a sample program (could be small), please provide me.  Here is the JavaScript code I found and working.

string strScript = "window.close();";
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, typeof(string), "key", strScript, true);

Thank you for your help!
