ColdFusion Open Popup Window On Exit

I want to open a popup window with a survey for visitors to my site BUT I only want the window to open when the visitors exits the site i.e. close the browser or go to a new URL.  Additionally, I only want to put the code on specific pages.

I have looked around quite a bit and can't even find a place to start.

This cannot be done with ColdFusion, but can be with Javascript:

Instead of doing an alert on close, you can instead create your popup window.  There is a code generator here:

Good Luck!

I know how to create a pop up window.  What I need is to control when it opens via a modified onunload.

If you say it can't be done with CF then I am going close this question here and open a new one in JavaScript.

Dndco, the solution provided is the JS method to this.  The first link provides an EE solution to your problem.  I have pasted the accepted solution below, but there were a few recommendations on the page (CREDIT TO XP_COMMANDER)::

<html>
<head>
<Script>
function onClose(){

if(window.screenTop>10000){
alert("Good Bye , visit us soon !")
}
}
window.onunload=onClose

</Script>
</head>

<body>    
Try to close the window and see the alert msg
</body>
</html>

Not sure if the original poster wound up going to JS for their popup, but I'm pretty sure mine was what he'd be looking for.

I solved this myself.  I found a site that did exactly what I was looking for.  It was done with AJAX.  Please close this question.  I apologize for being non-responsive.
