use this
<BODY onbeforeunload="HandleOnClose()">

Then, add the following JavaScript code into the <HEAD> section of your ASPX page:

<script language="javascript">
<!--

function HandleOnClose() {
   if (event.clientY < 0) {
      event.returnValue = 'Are you sure you want to leave the page?';
   }
}

//-->
</script>

The modal dialog window I am using is basically used for progress bar functionality.So this form will get loaded and unloaded at each instance and obviosly I cant use onbeforeunload and onunload.

So Is there any other way of raising javascript function when the user clicks on X button??

Hello vali66,

You could use one of the before mentioned events like a dead-men-switch.
Attach your event handler code to handle "unexpected" closure of the window. When the progress bar completes normally, flag this, so the close handler will not run.

<BODY onunload="Body_OnClose()">
 
<script language="javascript">
<!--
var noramlClose = false;
function Body_OnClose()
{
  if (normalClose)
    return;
 
  alert("Unexpected closing");
}
 
//-->
</script>

Open in new window

Hi moseack,
                   Thanks for the suggestion.But how do differentiate the normal closing (when the status is 100%) and Unexpected closing(not equal to 100%).

As in the both cases the form gets unloaded.For each percentage change (the form gets loaded and then unloaded) as I am running this under a thread.

Specifically I want to capture the event when the user explicitly clicked on X button of browser.

Any other alternative..


Thanks,
Shaikshavali.
