Hi,

I have a JSF window (dialog).
When the user presses the OK button I want to submit an action in the java bean.
After that I want to close the window.

What I do today is:



I guess there are 2 options:
1. To close the window (window.close()) from the jsf page itself after the submit, but I don't know how.
2. To do it from the add method in the java bean, but I also don't know how to do it...

Can anyone help me?
Thanks,
Efrat

I found the below text at another site (http://www.java-samples.com/showtutorial.php?tutorialid=476):

Closing the popup window

If the close button has a "cancel" semantic, we can use a simple OutputLink:
<h:outputLink onclick="window.close(); return false;" value="#">
<h:outputText value="cancel" />
</h:outputLink>

The window will simply close. The server will not notice anything.
Submit form and close the popup window

For a proper action handling which goes through the whole request lifecycle we need to use an action listener:
<h:commandLink actionListener="#{popupBean.closeWindowClicked}" value="submit and close" />
public void closeWindowClicked(ActionEvent event) {
FacesContext facesContext = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();

String javaScriptText = "window.close();";

// Add the Javascript to the rendered page's header for immediate execution
AddResource addResource = AddResourceFactory.getInstance(facesContext);
addResource.addInlineScriptAtPosition(facesContext, AddResource.HEADER_BEGIN, javaScriptText);
}

Note: If there is a validation error the window will not close unless the "immediate" attribute of the commandLink is set to "true".

hope that helps,
Tom
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
