Refreshing parent page from a child page opened as a modal dialog boxOptions

Default.aspx is the starting page containing a control(ascx) which
asp:button control on it. On the button click event it has to open a
new page as a modal control. Since refreshing a page in a dialog box
ended up opening up a new browser window with the aspx page, I read
a forum that I should use the iframe control and since I have to open
a bunch of pages as diaogboxes, I created a general
page(Container. aspx) which has an iframe control on it, which I then
pass a parameter(pageT oGoTo) specifying the aspx page that has to be
opened as a dialogbox.

Sequence of events and code are as follows:
On the default.aspx page I have added a control with a button. On the
button click server side event on that control, I call an aspx page.
string script = String.Format(" window.showModa lDialog(\"{0}?
pageToGoTo=test WebForm01.aspx\ ", \"testWebForm01 .aspx
\" ,'dialogWidth=5 20px;dialogHeig ht=650px;dialog Top=125px;dialo gLeft=125px;'); *",
ResolveUrl("~/Container.aspx" ));
Page.ClientScri pt.RegisterStar tupScript(GetTy pe(),
script, true);
On the Container.aspx I have an iframe control called frameTest which
I load on Page_Load event as follows
string pageToGoTo =
Request.QuerySt ring["pageToGoTo "];
frameTest.Attri butes["src"] = pageToGoTo;
This is then able to load the testWebForm01.a spx in the iframe
Now on a button click event on testWebForm01.a spx I want to close the
testWebForm01 form and reload default.aspx so that the control on
default.aspx. I added the following javascript code to
testWebForm01.a spx
function refreshParent()
window.opener.l ocation.href = window.opener.l ocation.href;
if (window.opener. progressWindow)
window.opener.p rogressWindow.c lose()
// parent.refresh( );
// self.close();
and called it on the server side button_click event as follows
string script = "refreshParent( )";
Page.ClientScri pt.RegisterStar tupScript(GetTy pe(),
script, true);
I keep getting window.opener is null error.
I read on another forum that if we have used showModalDialog method
then window.opener method is not initialized.
I did play around with trying to initialize it but haven't had any
Does anybody have any idea on how refreshing the parent page can be
accomplished? Please let me know.

For some reason, when I click the X to close my MDI parent form, the action appears to be re-directed to one of the MDI child forms, and the parent remains open. I am then unable to close the application. What should happen, is that the main MDI form should close, taking the child forms with it. There is code to loop through the child forms, remove the controls on each of them, and then close the form, but this code should execute only...

Hi there, programming with Visual Studio 2005 and ASP.NET 2.0 I want to open a modal dialog from Default.aspx. I searched the net and many newsgroups but I couldn't find any solution. First I tried using two aspx pages with standard controls and all those post-backs and their attributes OnClientClick. Since this didn't work, i reduced it to a default.aspx page opening a pure html-page as a modal dialog.
