Close browser tab on exit from ASP MVC api RRS feed

  • User-1176492134 posted

    I have a simple ASP MVC  api that is called from a third party application  that uses  a URL to call my internal website/api.

    All works well but I want to close the browser window and tab that is opened by the api when the user clicks a 'close' button on the index page of the api.

    I would like to return the user interface back to the calling third party app after the user clicks on the 'close' button.

    Ive tried opening then closing a new window using jscript but the browser tab remains open.

    I understand that browser security changes a few years ago restricts jscript to only close windows that were previously opened by jscript.

    Is there a way around this?

    No. Most browsers fixed the workarounds.
