I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

but to be precise:
before is when the unload starts but if you cancel the prompt, the unload won't occur. which results your window would stay open.

This is the answer I got:

Nothing's wrong - the points shown are the 'cost' of the question to be viewed by other users, not the number of points awarded to the answerer.  The figure is 10% of the points available for the original question.

They will get 20pts multiplied by the grade
