From an ASP.NET C# program, what functions can be called in the browser? I need a complete list of functions and properties that I have at my disposal. I am trying to understand how the C# program can determine state of the browser, and want to understand all calls that can be made.

Thanks,

ASP.NET is web technology, you don't have direct control on client browser. When a user interacts with browser (button click or some other action) the browser sends request to IIS (ASP.NET server), the server generates response according to user action and send back the response by parsing it into HTML. Because browsers only understands the HTML.

What exactly you want to achieve?

I want to be able to discern that the browser is in the process of being closed by the user. Then I would log off the user and allow the browser to close.

What "services" does the browser provide that can be queried from JavaScript? I know using the DOM that many attributes of the browser can be read.  Maybe the answer to my question is to learn about the DOM.

First of all, there is no solid way to determine if the browser is being closed by user. Similar questions have been posted earlier.

Secondly, if you want to play around with DOM using javascript,  you can refer following link, which is step by step explanation of accessing DOM.
