How to redirect after popup closes

Hi,

In my application, when user clicks on a link, I need to show a form in
a popup window. Popup has to close when form is submitted. If the form
data is valid then I need to go to action A in main browser else I need
to go to action b. how do I do it i.e. redirect the main window?

Thanks.

I think it’s something like “parent.location = …” in the onload
function of your popup… google should be able to fill in the detail
nicely.

But the form is submitted to an action in rails. From my rails action,
view A or B appear in popup. what I need is that popup should close when
form is submitted, and the main browser should either be redireced to A
or B.

Form gets submitted -> depending on wiehter form was valid or not,
rails will render a (slightly) different view.
it should render something like this:

... your view's body code here ...

not sure if my Javascript is 100% correct, but you should get the idea
and google should do the rest, you wil find much about parent &
location easily.

Thanks. It worked.
