Salesforce | Refresh the parent window automatically on closing the child window

| By Webner

On closing child popup window (on click of a button), we wanted to refresh the parent window automatically to check the updates.

We can refresh the parent window on closing the popup window by using javascript.

Syntax : This is sample javascript code of page loaded in popup:

function closeWindow()
window.opener.location.href="/{here we give the id of the page to which we want to refresh}";;
<apex:commandButton value="Close This Window" onclick="closeWindow();"/>

We can provide a button with label “close this window” button, on click of which we can call a javascript function closeWindow() which closes the current window and refreshes the parent window automatically.
