hi everyone,
i this sample i am having two links "click for pdf" and "click for doc". First if the user clicks on any of the link it should validate if the file is .doc or .pdf if it's .pdf file then a popup window should come and the .pdf file should open in it and if the user clicks on "click for doc" a popup window should come up and it should give you the option to download the .doc file and the popup window should automatically close. i am able to validate the file extension and the link "click for pdf" is working as it is suppose to. But if the user clicks on "click for doc" a popup window pops up i am not able to close that window after the download completes. Please "HELP ME!"

This is my Code Snippet:

<html>
<head>
<title>
</title>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.2.6/jquery.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
var windowSizeArray = [ "width=200,height=200",
"width=300,height=400,scrollbars=yes" ];

$(document).ready(function () {
$("a[href*=.pdf]").click(function () {
window.open(this.href, "ventana1", "width=520,height=300,scrollbars=yes");
return false;
});

});
</script>

<script type="text/javascript">


var windowSizeArray = ["width=200,height=200",
"width=300,height=400,scrollbars=yes"];

$(document).ready(function () {
$("a[href*=.doc]").click(function () {
//
var ab = window.open(this.href, "ventana1", "width=520,height=300,scrollbars=yes");
//ab.close();
//ab.setTimeout("window.close();", 5000);
//ab.setTimeout("alert('I am displayed after 3 seconds!')", 200);
ab.setTimeout("self.close()", 3000);
return false;
});

});

</script>

</head>

<body>

<a href="http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jls/download/langspec-3.0.pdf" >click for pdf</a><br /><br />
<a href="http://www.google.co.in/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=.doc&source=web&cd=13&ved=0CD8QFjACOAo&url=http%3A%2F%2Fgrants.nih.gov%2Fgrants%2Ffunding%2F416%2Fphs416-5.doc&ei=s1VHT5tPhfCtB7a_zcgP&usg=AFQjCNEJfrh5P2gvHLSh7M03SYtBI91uNg" >click for doc</a>
</body>
</html>

Thanks in advance

There is no way to detect download status.

There is no event to tell you when it has started either.

$(document).ready(function () {
$("a[href*=.doc]").click(function () {
//
var ab = window.open(this.href, "ventana1", "width=520,height=300,scrollbars=yes");
setTimeout(function(){
ab.close();
},3000);
//ab.setTimeout("self.close()", 3000);
return false;
});

Calling that a "solution" is a bit of a stretch.
