    window.location.reload behaves randomly

    i am invoking window.opener.location.reload function from a pop up window to reload the parent page. But this seems to behave randomly. Sometimes the reload would preserve form data eg. the state of the drop down lists. On some other occasions, it would reset all the drop down lists and form data. Does window.location.reload resend form data to the server?

    window.location.reload() defaults to load from cache, although not all browsers will retain the form values.
    You will need to store the form values and reset them.
