Also, if the pop up is visualforce page and parent page is standard page than you will not be able to do the refresh.

make a vf page and put the detail page in that.

there are some restriction related to domain when refrshing parent window.

Is there any solution for this scenario ? I'm invoking the visualforce page from lightining through iframe. How to close the iframe once the action is completed ?
