How do I get a Web form dropdown to refresh after a pop-up window is closed?
I have a Web form with a dropdown in which users choose their alias. This drop-down is linked to a SQL Server table. If the user doesn't have an alias, they can click a button and a pop-up window appears in which they add their name and alias. This pop-up updates the SQL Server table. How do I get the drop-down to refresh after they have closed the pop-up and returned to the main Web form?
Note that self.opener, window.opener, and simply opener point to the same object.
