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


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


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport"
    <title> Refresh Example </title>
        /* Css Styling */
            font-size: 45px;
            font-family: 'Courier New',
            text-align: center;
            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;
            margin-left: 45%;
            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;
            width: 50%;
            height: 50%;
            background-color: white;
            display: flex;
            justify-content: center;
            align-items: center;
            border-radius: 10px;
            font-family: 'Courier New', Courier, monospace;
            font-weight: bold;
            font-size: 40px;
    <!-- Create a simple web page -->
        <h1>Refresh Example </h1>
        <button class="btn" id="popup-btn">
            Show popup
    <!-- Create a simple popup which is hidden using CSS -->
    <div id="wrapper">
        <div id="popup">
                <button class="btn" id = "close-btn">
    <!-- All JavaScript code and logic -->
        // Attach event listener to open popup
'popup-btn').addEventListener('click', (e)=>{
'wrapper').style.visibility = "visible";
// Attach event listener to first close popup and then refresh page
'close-btn').addEventListener('click', (e) => {
'wrapper').style.visibility = "hidden";
