Hi,
Requirement: I have a html page(say Browser1) which opens a small window on click of a button.
I enter few info., in the child window and then click submit. The parent window(Browser1) should get refreshed.
The javascript (onSubmit) i have written in child window for the same looks like this...

This works properly..
Problem:
But if I have another browser window(say Browser 2) open then open the child window from it.. Click on submit of child window.
The "Content_Frame" of Browswer Window 1 is getting refreshed.. which is not acceptable.
The "Content_Frame" of Browser Window 2 should get refreshed since that is the parent of the child window.
Please let me know if you have some inputs.
Thanks in Advance,
Nijeesh.


Thanks & Regards,<br />Nijeesh.
