there is a link on compose.jsf page. when I clicked on link it opens a popup window (created by javascript). There is number of check boxes and one link "Done" under a form in pop up window. A user can select number of check boxes and when he clicks on link done, browser submit the form to server.

I want that the response (after submitting the form of popup window) into parent window and popup window should be closed . I have tried for this. The code works fine in IE and Firefox. There is problem with Google chrome browser where it opens another window instead of parent window.

I am pasting below my javascript-

function set_form_target()
elem = document.getElementById("addressbook");// form id
elem.target=window.opener.name;// I have set the name of parent window using window.name

<h:commandLink id="addContactToList" rendered="#{messageCompose.addressBook.size != 0}"
onclick="set_form_target();" value="Done" >
