I have this problem

I have a popup window with a close button , when user clicks on that close button i want to do two actions , clsoe that window and call a jsp page .This close button is in the html form . I think i need javascript , but i am not sure how to do that .

Is there any other way to do that.
Somebody please provide me with some sample code

basic idea before i leave work..
an example
if you do it this way you might run into the problem of the form not submitting....then again I am not sure what you need to be done. call it the 5pm brain freeze

not an answer, but something to be aware of. if your popup window has a close button in the top right corner, "X", the user is very likely to use it instead of the close button in your form.
