    Closing a PopUp




      I posted this a while ago and still need help.


      I am using Flex 4.6 and I have a popup window where the user can fill out a form and it gets emailed to me through a php script when the submit button is clicked. That part works fine.


      All I need help on is that once the submit button is clicked, I would also like the popup window to close. Rather than explain the code, I think its better if I just show you the code.  I edited the url for obvious reasons....


      Based on the following, can you help me close the popup once the submit button is closed?



      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

      <s:TitleWindow xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"



                              width="400" height="600" title="CoFo - Login Help"




                    <s:HTTPService id="login_email"


                                           useProxy="false" method="POST">


                           <mx:request xmlns="">















                           import mx.controls.Alert;

                           import mx.core.IFlexDisplayObject;

                           import mx.events.CloseEvent;

                           import mx.managers.PopUpManager;


                           public function closeWindow(e:CloseEvent):void {

                                 PopUpManager.removePopUp(e.target as IFlexDisplayObject);






             <s:TextArea x="32" y="10" width="332" height="229" editable="false" fontSize="11"

          Modify close function to following


          public function closeWindow(e:CloseEvent = null):void {




          Modify submit button MXML as


          <s:Button x="317" y="533" label="Submit" click="login_email.send();closeWindow()"/>



          Thanks and Best regards,
