I have the following command that ask the user if he is sure he wants to exit the page:
<body onbeforeunload="return ' '">
I want to have this only in case I have changes in the page that the user did not save.
How can I check it and how do I give a condition in this place in the < BODY>
Thankyou
Anat

when you say Save what do you mean?

If you mean a form then you could create a function to store the value of form fields when thje page was first loaded, then have them compare when they leave the page, if they are different you could show the error:  i.e

(paste this into a blank document and name it with a .html extension and run it)_

<html>

<head>
<script>
var oldVal = "";

function saveValues()
{
   oldVal = document.myForm.tester.value;
}

function checkChanges()
{
  if ( oldVal != document.myForm.tester.value )
   { return 'Are you sure you wish to exit dude?';}
}

</script>
</head>
<BODY onload="saveValues();" onbeforeunload="return checkChanges();">
<form name="myForm">
<input type="text" name="tester">
</form>

</body>

</html>

That's very nice.
What is left is the problem of the refresh. I wrote you in the .NET forum. Can you help?
Thankyou
