Hi
I am having trouble getting this to close the window after a time delay, from within the window content.
Can't see what i am doing wrong. Can anyone help?
Thanks
Clive

Hello Clive,

When you want to use a function with its name with the setTimeout javascript function, you should put it in quotes as shown below:

<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
  
    <script type="text/javascript">   
function closeWindow()      
{      
    var oWindow = GetRadWindow();      
    oWindow.close();      
}      
function GetRadWindow()         
{      
  var oWindow = null;      
  if (window.radWindow)      
     oWindow = window.radWindow;      
  else if (window.frameElement.radWindow)      
     oWindow = window.frameElement.radWindow;      
  return oWindow;      
}        
    </script>
  
</head>
<body onload="setTimeout('closeWindow()', 3000);">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        Close this window after downloading your file if it does not close automatically</div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Once I did this, everything started working as expected and the RadWindow was closed as expected.

Best wishes,
