    Default Automatically close a popup after delay

    I'm using window.open to open a page in a new popup window. I'd like the window to automatically close after 30 seconds. I presume I need to use the setTimeout function but not sure.

    Any ideas?

    Code:
    var popup = window.open("popup.htm");
    setTimeout("popup.close()", 30000);

    Great Twey!

    I stared at this for ages and never got close to such a simple solution. Talk about not seeing the wood for the trees....

    Thanks.

    Heh, no problem. Sometimes it just needs a different viewpoint.
