Hi all,

I have a scenario that i need to clear the user session when he clicks the browser's close button .I have done that by capturing the position of close button in the browser but now i have a problem that i have tried in IE 6,7,8 .The application is working fine in 6 but not in 7,8.The position of close button may have changed .

How can i get to know that user has clicked the close button in all browsers like IE 6,7,8 and firefox?

Thanks in advance.

Not going to happen, not going to happen. What about browser errors, lost internet connections, ctrl-w, ctrl-alt-delete, user typing different address, etc? You can not catch all of the ways to close the browser window. You can not make a web application act like a client application. If you want to try to do it : some code Eric
