  1. Hi Amit,
    thanks for sharing this... really helpful..

    can you please let me know if this can refresh the parent window instead of refreshing the pop window?

    In My case ,we have a custom button, on click of which a pop up opens and some picklist selections are made on that pop up page, when user clicks save , it should close the pop up window and at the same time it should refresh the parent window with newly selected values...

    When i am using your code, it is not updating the parent window but it is refreshing the pop up window.....

    Can you please help ??


  2. Tried this but primary tab didn't refresh. Any ideas?
