In ASP.NET 2.0 with C#
I want to use the command onbeforeunload in order to check if the user presses the close button:
<body onbeforeunload="return ' '">
but this command shows the message each time the page is refreshed.
Can I give a condition that it will not appear in each refresh?
for example the following code check if the value in the page was changed and only if true the onbeforeunload
will active.
I need to do it in .NET and check if the values in the formview in the page were changed and not in each
refresh of the page.
How do I do it?

<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>
