I have used following codes and it will worked on IE but not in FireFox browser

1] <script langauge=""javascript"" type=""text/javascript"">window.opener.location=window.opener.location;</script>

2] window.opener.location.reload(true);

3] <script langauge=""javascript"" type=""text/javascript"">window.opener.location.href='../parentpage';</script>"

4] window.opener.location.reload(true);window.opener.location.href=window.opener.location;

Folder structure of pages are as like -

main folder (ABC) ---> sub folder 1(PQR) ---> parent page ( which needs to refresh )

                                 sub folder 1(PQR) ---> sub folder 2(XYZ) ----> popup page

From above structure, I need to refersh parent page which is in PQR folder from popup page which is in XYZ folder under PQR folder.

Please provide me javascript code which will work for both browser as IE and Firefox

Refresh Parent Page List after Edit Item Modal Dialog Save/Close

I am calling the Edit Item URL (EditForm.aspx?ID=x&IsDlg=1) via javascript code to bring up the Edit Item Modal Dialog. This works fine and dandy. But what callbackfunction should I invoke after the Save so that the parent list is refreshed? Is there a better way to do it than call reload on the entire parent frame? It almost looks like there should be a way to refresh just the list. Any help appreciated. Thanks, Jake.

How to refresh page and dropdown after insert record from popup page


I have a page that is opened in a popup window from the main page. Once i click insert it pops up a message that says you have successfully added blah blah. Then once you click ok it closes the popup page and goes back to the main page. I want to be able to refresh the main page back to how it was when you first land on the page. Here is the code for my insert button:


 <asp:button id="insertButton" 
                    style="background-image:url('Images/Button.gif'); text-align:center;background-color:Transparent; cursor:hand; background-repeat:no-repeat; background-position:left; padding-left:15px; font-family: 'Arial Unicode MS'; font-size: small; font-weight: bold;" 
                    Runat="server" Height="25px" BorderStyle=None ForeColor=White    Text="Insert" 
                    Width="99px" CssClass="style13" CommandName="Insert" OnClientClick="javascript: alert('You have successfully added a New Donor!!');window.open('','_self','');window.close();" />


How to close the sharepoint modal dialog and refresh the parent page using Server side API?

I am trying to find a way to close a modal page that has been opened with the click event of ribbon control. Once the modal dialog is opened, I'm showing 'OK' button for the user to confirm some action on the respective list item. If the user clicks on 'OK', I'm performing some action on the listitem using server side code. Here the problem for me is, once the action is completed on this listItem, I need to close the dialog and refresh the parent page (AllItem.aspx) using *sharepoint server side

I'm aware that for closing the dialog we have JS code "SP.UI.ModalDialog.commonModalDialogClose". But this is not useful for me, because I should first run some action on the listitem and once that action is complete, then only I should close this dialog.
