Window.Close() not Working in Iview

Hello All,

I have portal component in which I have a JSP page. In the JSP page I have just added a single button . On the client click of that button I am trying to close the window. However the method does not seem to execute since the window is not getting closed.

I have created an iview based on this portal component and then assigned this iview to a particular page. This page is then being accessed from a workset.

Kindly respond.

For your Information I am writing the code that I have written in my jsp:

<table border="0" width="100%">



<hbj:button id = "closeButton"

text = "Close Window"

design = "emphasized"

onClientClick = "window.close()"





Thanks and Regards

Pradeep Bhojak

    Are you getting any errors?

    You may need to specifiy the full "address" of window.close() (ie. document.theForm.window.close())

    Actually we creating a iview based on the portal archieve file. Then I have assigned this iview to a page and we have then assigned this page to a workset.

    On the click of the button I am not getting any error , the first time I click in the status bar it shows "done" and for every click thereafter I get a messager of "javascript:void()" in the status bar.

    When we preview the iview , since the preview is getting opened up in a new window, this works fine, but when it gets assigned to a page and then to a workset, it does not open up in a new window. So may be this is posing a problem.

    One more thing I would like to point out, there are no standard buttons in which we can close the existing views . i.e suppose I have taken the following path

    System Administration->Monitoring->Portal Content

    ->Object Locking..

    After I try and release the locked objects, we are just displayed that the locked objects are released, but no-where on that particular page we can close that page.Is this fuctionality provided intentionally or no body has pointed out till now.

      Ahh, that's something different.

      The best way is probably to make a new page under the same menu item and make it completly blank.

      On the button just make a link using the navigationtarget (search for info on this)

      If you want a quick hack, try <a href="someblankpage.html placed in the document root" target="ivuFrm_page0ivu3">
