[Cartoweb-users] Refreshing from another url

One solution is to have a javascript function on the opener side that check, say, every 5 sec, if the opened page is still open. 
something like:

function isopenCheck () {
  var delay = 5000;
  timerID = self.setTimeout("checkOpen()", delay);
function checkOpen() {
  if (window.name_of_the_opened_window && window.name_of_the_opened_window.open && !window.name_of_the_opened_window.closed) {
      try {
      } catch (e) {
        // if error, then cant access property, hence, domain changed
        //do action
  } else {
    // do other action

this will only work if you open the external page via a windows.open javascript function, but it should do the trick

  Hi list,

  I have a plugin, that invoke a page from different domain.
  Now I need to refresh the map when the opened page close.
  The window.opener.location.reload() function doesnot work because
  the popup is in different domain.

  Do I have any other option to do that?
