How to handle ASP Session with Time Counter for dynamic site?

We create a pop up with some message in JavaScript file. This will load after few seconds like 15sec. when page load. Since we place in a dynamic page, the popup loads every time when page loads e.g. /items.asp?Mc=HOZ , /items.asp?Mc=CH  or index.asp or any page... For avoiding multiple display of popup, we want to use session, i.e. for one session popup will display only once.
But the problem arises in using time counter...¦ We want to display that popup after 15 sec of loading time. When page loads & we waited for 15 sec it works fine... popup is displayed...
If we'™re not waiting 15 sec, and click on the other dynamic or asp links...¦ pop wasn'™t displayed in that time.

Can anybody have any solution or reference regarding this problem?

Thanks

Hi,

Since problem exists when user navigates out of the page, timer stops and pop up is never shown ,
maybe you need to add another validation before leaving the page. I.e, add javascript body.onunload ='ceckPopUpShown';

What you need to do is to create var

var refToPopUp;

code to pop up window in here and instead of just window.open(urlto pop up),
Change that line to
refToPopUp = window.open(urlto pop up),

and on event body.onunload

function ceckPopUpShown()
{
if( refToPopUp == null )
//this means no window was open
{
//show window
window.open(urlto pop up)
}
}

body.onunload is event that is fired when body is unloaded and new page is to be shown in the browser
