Closing Browser Window

Does anyone know how I can programmatically close the browser window from an iView running on the portal? I recently got a requirement that adds a "Close" button to the main portal logon page. When the user clicks that button, it is supposed to close the browser window.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    The problem is that you need to get the top window in order to close it properly.

    Try the javascript code top.window.close()

    Let me know if it works
