Refresh Parent on Pop Up Closed

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

This has probably been answered before but I was looking at some various posts but the needs I am trying to meet just don't see to work.

So here is the scenario:

User clicks the button and a javascript I have registered opens a pop up window and passes a query string

User then is presented with a gridview with a selection to make (the selection event is triggered again through javascript and mouseover event)

The data is updated in the table for the data being displayed in the parent which is all fine

When the page is done with this it closes and refreshes the parent


Now the problem:

All of this works fine up until the point that I close the window and after playing around with different snippets I have come across I just can't get the thing to refresh the parent properly because when I do the refresh I need to pass the current querystring as follows:

        Dim cScript As String
        cScript = "<script language='javascript'> opener.location.href = 'Workstations.aspx?ClientID=' & MyGUID & '&AddNew=' & 'False' & '&WksID=' & WksID'; </script>"
        Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType(), "parentwindow", cScript)

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 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.

GridView Parent Child View with JQuery Effects

I was just checked how to add some more cool effects to the GridView control using JQuery. In this post I will display parent-child data in the GridView control with some help of the wonderful JQuery library.

Let's first populate the GridView control.

Composite Control which contains arbitrary content defined in .aspx of parent and thier ViewState


I want to write own control which can contain other. And I want to define content of the control in the .aspx file where the control is defined. I have written such control. But now I have issue with ViewState of inner controls of my control. The following samle illustrates the issue: I defined two asp:DropDownList ID="ddl1" and ID="ddl2" One of them is inside of my control and other is outside. When posback is occurred asp:DropDownList ID="ddl1 loses state and becomes empty. How to say ASP.net to store state of inner controls defined by this way?


<%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="MyControl.ascx.cs" Inherits="DynamicControls.Controls.MyControl" %>

<div class="box">
    <div class="Header-Left">
        <div class="Header-Right">
            My Control
    <div class="Content">
        <asp:PlaceHolder ID="contentPlace" runat="Server" />
