Hi there ...

i am working with codeigniter and trying to submit a form and then closing it with javascript...

i have a popup function...that i call from the parent page
HTML Code:
 < a href = "javascript:popup('controller/method/variable', 'Click', '400', '400')">Click</a>
and here is the function:
Code:
function reject_popup(url, name, width, height){
		    var top = parseInt((screen.availHeight / 2) - (height / 2));
		    var left = parseInt((screen.availWidth / 2) - (width / 2));
		    var features = "location=1, status=1, scrollbars=1, width=" + width + ", height=" + height + ", top=" + top + ", left=" + left;
		    window.open(url, name, features);
		}
and it opens this form:
HTML Code:
[PHP]<?php echo form_open('state/validate_rejection/'.$file_results->sender_id.'/'.$this->session->userdata('id').'/'.$file_results->id, array('name'=>'rejection_form', 'id'=>'rejection_form', 'onsubmit'=>'window.forms[0].submit();self.close();')); ?>[/PHP]

			<div class="form">

				<p>
					<label>Write the reason of Rejection?<span class='req'>* Required</label>
						<textarea name="remarks" rows="8" style="width:380px; max-width:380px " autofocus required></textarea>
				</p>

			</div>
			<!-- End Form -->

			<!-- Form Buttons -->
			<div class="buttons">	

				<input type="button" class="button" value="cancel" onclick="javascript:self.close();" />
				<input name="submit_rejection" id="submit_rejection" type="submit" class="button" value="Send" />

			</div>
			<!-- End Form Buttons -->

		[PHP]<?php echo form_close(); ?>[/PHP]
as you can see the form action is a url that goes to a codeigniter controller/method :
here is the method i use

Code:
function validate_rejection(){

		$this->form_validation->set_rules('remarks', 'Remarks', 'trim|required');

			if($this->form_validation->run() == TRUE){

				$sender_id = $this->uri->segment(3) ? $this->uri->segment(3) : 0;
				$user_id = $this->uri->segment(4) ? $this->uri->segment(4) : 0;
				$file_id = $this->uri->segment(5) ? $this->uri->segment(5) : 0;

//here a function from codigniter model is called, and returns true if query succeded, false if it failed
				$rejection = $this->files_model->reject_file($sender_id, $user_id, $file_id);

				if($rejection == TRUE){

					$this->session->set_flashdata('rejection_succ', 'Rejected Successfully');
					//redirect('home');
				}
				else{

					$this->session->set_flashdata('rejection_fail', 'Rejection of file Failed');
				}
			}
			else{
				$this->session->set_flashdata('remarks_validation_errors', validation_errors());
			}
	}
and if the form is submitted successfully or failed it will set a flashdata

NOW I WANT THAT WHEN THE FORM IS SUBMITTED TO CHECK IF FORM IS FINISHED, RELOAD THE PARENT PAGE AND CLOSE THE POPUP....
Can anyone please help me achieve that?
