closing and refreshing

Hello

I'd like to know, how to do this.. when I close a popup (window.close), refresh the window.opener ?

Like, when I click on a link, it popups a window, and once the user has completed to fill the form, he clicks on the button "close" that has window.close javascript implemented. But I'd like to close, and automatically refresh the window that opened this popup

    What do you mean "refresh"? If you mean simply bring focus to the
    previous window, then you can do this:

    window.opener.focus();
    window.close();

    However, this will not add new data to the previous (or parent)
    window. If your pop-up changes anything, you will end up with
    commands like:

    window.opener.document.something

    I hope this helps.
