How to refresh parent page on closing a popup ?
  • Last Updated : 07 Aug, 2020

The task is to refresh parent page on closing a popup.

The Steps to achieve this are as follows:

  1. Create a page.
  2. Create a popup.
  3. Popup should contain a button that when clicked refreshes parent page.
  4. Attach an event listener to that button and listen for click event on that button.
  5. Clicking on that button triggers a function that reloads the parent page.

Reloading is achieved by JavaScript using the below statement

window.location.reload();

Note: Use internal CSS to make page look beautiful. And all CSS code is within <style> tag.

Example:




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport"
          content="width=device-width, 
                   initial-scale=1.0">
    <title> Refresh Example </title>
    <style>
        /* Css Styling */
        h1{
            font-size: 45px;
            font-family: 'Courier New',
                          Courier,
                          monospace;
            text-align: center;
        }
  
        .btn{
            padding: 10px 20px;
            font-size: 24px;
            background-color: #0f9d58;
            border: none;
            color: white;
            border-radius: 10px;
            outline: none;
            box-shadow: 0px 3px 2px 1px rgb(100, 100, 100);
            cursor: pointer;
        }
  
        #popup-btn{
            margin-left: 45%;
        }
  
        #wrapper{
            position: absolute;
            left: 0;
            top: 0;
            width: 100vw;
            height: 100vh;
            background-color:rgba(100, 100, 100, 0.7);
            display: flex;
            justify-content: center;
            align-items: center;
            visibility: hidden;
        }
  
        #popup{
            width: 50%;
            height: 50%;
            background-color: white;
            display: flex;
            justify-content: center;
            align-items: center;
            border-radius: 10px;
        }
  
        h2{
            font-family: 'Courier New', Courier, monospace;
            font-weight: bold;
            font-size: 40px;
        }
    </style>
</head>
<body>
  
    <!-- Create a simple web page -->
    <div>
        <h1>Refresh Example </h1>
      
        <button class="btn" id="popup-btn">
            Show popup
        </button>
    </div>
  
    <!-- Create a simple popup which is hidden using CSS -->
    <div id="wrapper">
        <div id="popup">
            <div>
                <h2>POPUP</h2>
                <button class="btn" id = "close-btn">
                    Close
                </button>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
  
    <!-- All JavaScript code and logic -->
    <script>
        // Attach event listener to open popup
        document.getElementById(
'popup-btn').addEventListener('click', (e)=>{
            document.getElementById(
'wrapper').style.visibility = "visible";
        })
  
// Attach event listener to first close popup and then refresh page
        document.getElementById(
'close-btn').addEventListener('click', (e) => {
            document.getElementById(
'wrapper').style.visibility = "hidden";
            window.location.reload();
        });
    </script>
</body>
</html>
