from what i understand (still learning cf) the application.cfc is only served when a request is made for a page. this is why the onSessionEnd cflocation bit does not work straight away when the sessions ends or times out because I had this issue awhile back.

i.e. you're on a page for a while, you then logout, and its not until you try and do something else ilike  access another page that the app.cfc runs and the redirect works because the session has ended.

If that’s what you’re implying and not sure.

i was doing more googling and since onSessionEnd occurs asynchronously it cannot do a cflocation call

thats what i was saying above.  onSessionEnd occurs but its not until the next request to the server the broswer would know about it, at at points it too late.

why not use javascript to inform the users when the session is going to time out?

if i have not answered you're question then dont, i am sure someone can jump in and help.

i used a counter in javascript in the app file, every time the app.cfc is run (every page request) the counter is reset to 0, if the counter get to a set limited it informs the user the session is about to timeout and gives them a change to do something.

becuase app.cfc is done server side i dont think it will work how you want it.
