if you want to prompt user for a message use client-side script to handle that. The sample below will prompt user for a message 5 seconds after the page is loaded.

=-=-=- aspx =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
<html>
      <head>
            <title></title>
            <script language="javascript">
            <!--
            function SessionTimeOut()
            {
                  alert('Page expired, please click refresh...');
                  // or redirect to a page
                  // window.location.href='default.aspx';
            }
            // -->
            </script>
      </head>
      <body runat="server" id="body">
            <form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
            </form>
      </body>
</html>
=-=-=- aspx.vb - Page_Load event =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
      Dim sessionTimeout As Integer = 5000 // 5 seconds
      body.Attributes.Add( "onLoad", String.Format("window.setTimeout('SessionTimeOut()',{0});", sessionTimeout) )
End Sub
