Hi everybody,

I want to invoke a javascript function just before a browser window is closed.
That means, if the user manually closes the browser window,
then that function should be called just before closing that window.
I tried html body "onunload" to call the function, but not working.

Thanks.

There is no real way of knowing if the person closes the window, refreshed the window, or navigates to a new page.

If you are trying to clean up a session on the server, that is what the session end events is for.
