Is there a way that I can logout from my website automatically(if the user is idle to a certain time period) according to a session expiration timeout, I am using VB.NET and a WebApplication as my project.....


LoginOut should occur and redirect the page to the Login Page

The link I sent earlier Logs me Out of the page even if I am working on the Page, The Logout thing should work only if I'm idle for the session Timeout period or whatever.....

10000 means 10 s.

The script on the link will log you out if you are not refreshing the page in certain amount of time.
You may try others method that some popular website used, capture the client ip, identify the opened IE window, and continue active at the duration where the windows opened.
