I already do a search here but still i didn't get the right code even i tried to modify few of the codes that maybe similar to my problem.

My problem is, i want to auto-logoff user whenever they close the browser by clicking the red 'X' button up there.Like when i login into Yahoo Mail, and then i click the 'X' button to close the browser without logout.When i try to open my yahoo mail again, it will direct me to login page, asking me to login again before i can read my mail.

I'm using asp.net. I try to add

<body  onunload="onClose()">

and then before <head> , i put

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">

      char id = Request.Form("UserIdGWCAdmin");
      char name = Request.Form("UserNameGWCAdmin");

      document.cookies = "userID = id";
      document.cookies = "userName = name";
      
                      function onClose() {
                             var iX = window.document.body.offsetWidth - window.event.clientX ;
              var iY = window.event.clientY ;

            if (iX <=30 && iY < 0 )
            {
                 var Yesterday=new Date();
                 Yesterday.setDate(Yesterday.getDate() - 1);
                  myExpire = (Yesterday.getMonth() - 1) + "/" +  Yesterday.getDate() ;
                  myExpire += "/" + Yesterday.getFullYear();
                  document.cookies = "userID="+id+"; expires="+myExpire.toGMTString();
                document.cookies = "userName="+name+"; expires="+myExpire.toGMTString();

                            }
      }

</script>

but still, when i open again the browser, it will again go back to the page without asking me to login again.

I'm not sure why do you need to test for " if (iX <=30 && iY < 0 )" in onClose() function. Will it work if you remove the if test?

Change:
function onClose() {
                             var iX = window.document.body.offsetWidth - window.event.clientX ;
              var iY = window.event.clientY ;

            if (iX <=30 && iY < 0 )
            {
                 var Yesterday=new Date();
                 Yesterday.setDate(Yesterday.getDate() - 1);
                  myExpire = (Yesterday.getMonth() - 1) + "/" +  Yesterday.getDate() ;
                  myExpire += "/" + Yesterday.getFullYear();
                  document.cookies = "userID="+id+"; expires="+myExpire.toGMTString();
                document.cookies = "userName="+name+"; expires="+myExpire.toGMTString();

                            }
      }

To:
function onClose() {
      var Yesterday=new Date();
      Yesterday.setDate(Yesterday.getDate() - 1);
      myExpire = (Yesterday.getMonth() - 1) + "/" +  Yesterday.getDate() ;
      myExpire += "/" + Yesterday.getFullYear();
      document.cookies = "userID="+id+"; expires="+myExpire.toGMTString();
      document.cookies = "userName="+name+"; expires="+myExpire.toGMTString();
}

I try to remove the IF statement, but still it didn't expired the cookies.I change my code a bit to this,

        function onClose() {
                  var iX = window.document.body.offsetWidth - window.event.clientX ;
                  var iY = window.event.clientY ;

                        alert(document.cookie);
                        var Yesterday=new Date();
                        Yesterday.setDate(Yesterday.getDate() - 1);
                        myExpire = (Yesterday.getMonth() - 1) + "/" + Yesterday.getDate() ;
                        myExpire += "/" + Yesterday.getFullYear();
                        document.cookies = "expires="+myExpire.toGMTString();
                        alert(document.cookie);

            }

I've change the code a bit, and manage to do a pop-up msg, showing the latest cookies. I got the cookies with expired date that i put 2 days back,but why did the page still available to view without needing user to login again.

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
      
        function onClose() {
                  var iX = window.document.body.offsetWidth - window.event.clientX ;
                  var iY = window.event.clientY ;
                  var cookie = document.cookie

                        alert('cookie------->'+cookie);
                        var today = new Date();
                        alert('today------->'+today);
                        today.setTime( today.getTime());
                        expires = 1000 * 60 * 60 * 48;
                        var expires_date = new Date( today.getTime() - (expires) );
                        alert('expires_date------->'+expires_date);
                        expires = expires_date
                        alert(expires);
                        document.cookie = "expires="+expires;
                        alert('document.cookie------->'+document.cookie);

            }

</script>

Could this be the problem?

      document.cookies = "userID = id";
      document.cookies = "userName = name";

Change the above to:

      document.cookies = "userID = "+id;
      document.cookies = "userName = "+name;
