I am stuck in a problem for which i need your help.
We are implementing a Time Out feature for one of the functionalities in a web application.
we have a functionality called Alerts in our application.
Currently the Alerts are displaying properly and are present in the application all the time . now we have to implement the Time Out feature for the requirement.The Alerts should disappear after certain amount of time.can anybody let me know the design for this approach and how this should be implpemented.

Please let us know your comments and suggestions. waiting for a positive reply form your side.

Set the session time out if you are using session.

The session timeout will invalidate your session so you can't retrieve more pages on the same session. I'm not sure that's what you're after. Can you define "disappear" a little better? If I'm watching the screen at the moment time expires, does something happen?

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
