Refreshing Main Window from a PopUp! how do I do this? dreamcatcher msg:1487076 12:51 am on Jun 28, 2003 (gmt 0) Hi guys,
Assume I have a members area on my website and when each member clicks an edit link in their profile, their profile opens up in a pop up window where they can edit their details.
How do I do it so that when they click "Update", their details are updated, then the pop up window closes and the main page refreshes showing the new details?

You can do a refresh from a window opened by that document.
thus should refresh the parent window.

Thanks korkus2000, thats exactly what I was looking for.
I got the idea from my Invision forum software. With that you have a link called "My Assistant", which when clicked opens a pop up window. When any of the links are clicked in that window, it closes that window and refreshes the main page to direct to whatever link was pressed.

You can find a lot of samples out there. My first crack on google turned up quite a few:
Thanks bonanza, thats very useful. I could have done a search, but with posting you get to hear different opinions of different ideas, which I always enjoy reading.
