Post your question to a community of 470,815 developers. It's quick & easy.

is it possible to refresh another window

I have one asp page (main.asp) that opens a window, that allows the user to
enter an item. This window is controlled by enter_item.asp (much the same as
a modal VB window). Except, when the item is entered in the pop up window,
and this window processes the changes and closes, I need the main window to
refresh again.

Because the pop up window is there, for an undefinable period, it is not
possible to set a refresh timeout on the main window. Is there anyway, the
pop up window can send back to the main.asp page, to refresh itself?

Sorry, forgot you have to change your Submit Button. Use a JS Function

Sorry John,
That's not exactly what I was after....

There is a window that is opened that does some processing. It is a seperate
browser window. When this window closes, the main window that opened it,
needs to refresh.

It's not with form submitting, unless I can submit the form to an already
open window (maybe I should look at naming the window or something, but not
sure how)...
