Popup Redirect or Refresh Parent Window - Summary

What You Have Learned

  1. You made a text link open up a pop up window.

  2. The popup window provided your your user with some navigational choices.

  3. When the user selected a link:
    1. The parent window was redirected to the appropriate page.

    2. The popup window automatically closed.

    3. All this with one simple piece of JavaScript code:

      <a href="javascript:;" onclick="opener.location='YourPageHere.htm';self.close()">

And that's it!

Head on over to Trent's site and look under the Extensions Menu for the "Pop_to_Parent" link at :
