javascript – Open popup and refresh parent page on close popup-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I opened a popup window by window.open in JavaScript, i want to refresh parent page when I close this popup window.(onclose event?) how can I do that?

window.open("foo.html","windowName", "width=200,height=200,scrollbars=no");
How to solve:

You can access parent window using ‘window.opener‘, so, write something like the following in the child window:

<script>
    window.onunload = refreshParent;
    function refreshParent() {
        window.opener.location.reload();
    }
</script>

###

The pop-up window does not have any close event that you can listen to.

On the other hand, there is a closed property that is set to true when the window gets closed.

You can set a timer to check that closed property and do it like this:

var win = window.open('foo.html', 'windowName',"width=200,height=200,scrollbars=no");   
var timer = setInterval(function() {   
    if(win.closed) {  
        clearInterval(timer);  
        alert('closed');  
    }  
}, 1000); 

See this working Fiddle example!

###

on your child page, put these:

<script type="text/javascript">
    function refreshAndClose() {
        window.opener.location.reload(true);
        window.close();
    }
</script>

and

<body onbeforeunload="refreshAndClose();">

but as a good UI design, you should use a Close button because it’s more user friendly. see code below.

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function () {
        $('#btn').click(function () {
            window.opener.location.reload(true);
            window.close();
        });
    });
</script>

<input type='button' id='btn' value='Close' />

###

I use this:

<script language='javascript'>
var t;
function doLoad() {
t = setTimeout("window.close()",1000);
}

</script>
<script type="text/javascript">
function refreshAndClose() {
    window.opener.location.reload(true);
    window.close();
}
</script>
<body onbeforeunload="refreshAndClose();" onLoad='doLoad()''>

when the window closes it then refreshes the parent window.

###

window.open will return a reference to the newly created window, provided the URL opened complies with Same Origin Policy.

This should work:

function windowClose() {
    window.location.reload();
}

var foo = window.open("foo.html","windowName", "width=200,height=200,scrollbars=no");
foo.onbeforeunload= windowClose;‚Äč

If your app runs on an HTML5 enabled browser. You can use postMessage. The example given there is quite similar to yours.

In my case I opened a pop up window on click on linkbutton in parent page.
To refresh parent on closing child using

window.opener.location.reload();

in child window caused re open the child window (Might be because of View State I guess. Correct me If I m wrong).
So I decided not to reload page in parent and load the the page again assigning same url to it.

To avoid popup opening again after closing pop up window this might help,

window.onunload = function(){
    window.opener.location = window.opener.location;};

###

Try this

        self.opener.location.reload(); 

Open the parent of a current window and reload the location.

###

You can reach main page with parent command (parent is the window) after the step you can make everything…

    function funcx() {
        var result = confirm('bla bla bla.!');
        if(result)
            //parent.location.assign("http://localhost:58250/Ekocc/" + document.getElementById('hdnLink').value + "");
            parent.location.assign("http://blabla.com/" + document.getElementById('hdnLink').value + "");
    } 

###

You can use the below code in the parent page.

<script>
    window.onunload = refreshParent;
    function refreshParent() {
      window.opener.location.reload();
    }
</script>

###

Following code will manage to refresh parent window post close :

function ManageQB_PopUp() {
            $(document).ready(function () {
                window.close();
            });
            window.onunload = function () {
                var win = window.opener;
                if (!win.closed) {
                    window.opener.location.reload();
                }
            };
        }
