View Full Version : close window with js

10-25-2015, 06:36 PM
Sorry, been out of the loop on js for a while and need to fix a page. Could someone help me out? From one page(Win1), I open a second with js (win2), which presents results of data collected on that page (win2) on win 3, also opened and written from win2 with js. I would like win2 closed when win 3 is opened. Is that possible, dependably.

Hmmm, you've forgotten to include your code but if you haven't got that far, maybe start your research here https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=close+a+window+javascript

And if you need more help, please provide a reduced case setup to demonstrate the behaviour. Also include the code you've written to close the window so that we can make suggestions on fixing the parts that dont work as expected.

A very simple and effective solution is to just clear the contents of the current window and then rewrite them. This line is very useful:


Use with caution as it will clear everything (including scripts) that is contained between the <body> and </body> tags!

Thanks. That will work well.
