Struts action triggered by onUnload event

I have an action class that triggers a pop up window displaying the results of the action. What I want to happen is when a user clicks a cancel button in the popup window I want the pop up window to transfer the control to the parent window and then trigger an action class that refreshes the parent window before the pop up closes, then I want the pop up window to close.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Joe, I'm moving this thread over to our HTML and JavaScript forum since your problem is not specific to Struts (the solution is the same, regardless of whether the target is a Struts action, a JSP, or a regular Servlet).

Please continue the discussion over there.

Thanks.

you can do

<body onunload="window.opener.reload()">

.reload() does not seem to work with Firewox, it must be MicroSoft specific code.
