    Closing Window with Javascript


    Hi, I was wondering if there was a way to use Javascript to Close a browser
    window without any warning, no questions asked, just shut it.

    Something that would go in the body of the HTML coding, or maybe a countdown
    of 10 seconds until window closes.

    I have found some scripts but when they go to close the window a box appears
    letting me know that the browser is trying to close the window. Yes or no.

    Thanks, John

    John,

    Not really a Java question but:

    You can only close a window without a warning if you also opened it with
    script:

    <script>
    function close() {
    self.close();
    }
    </script>

    This will throw up a warning if the current window wasn't opened by script
    (or something). So open it with:

    <script>
    function openWindow() {
    window.open('window2.html');
    }
    </script>

    Regards,
    Kent
