Knowledge Base support case for Likno Web Modal Windows Builder, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.

Initial Email Subject: Close window on form submission...
Support Case Month: June 2012

Hello,

I have a question all together. I have a project I am working on and I created a Modal Window for this project. The modal window contains a Password Retrieval where you enter your email and submit to have your password emailed to you, standard form, nothing special. I have it working the way I want it to but what I need to have happen is for the window to close when the form is submitted. This is the form variable;

<form name="flogin" id="flogin" class="ewForm" action="<%= ew_CurrentPage %>" method="post" onsubmit="return ewForms[this.id].Submit();">

Can I add something to this that will close the window upon successful submission?

Thanks
Jim

Dear Jim,

There are two ways to handle this:

1) if you want the form to load the resulting page (be it successful or not) in the parent window, then give a “target” to your form:

<form target="_top" name="flogin" id="flogin" class="ewForm" action="<%= ew_CurrentPage %>" method="post" onsubmit="return ewForms[this.id].Submit();">

2) you can load the resulting page in the modal and have it contain a “close” button, or even have it close the modal automatically by adding the relevant code at the end of the page, for example:

<script>top.likno_modal_project.close();</script>

(this is of course assuming that your modal project compile name is “likno-modal-project” which is the default compile name)
