Inactivity Timeout

What is the best way to implement timeout functionality for inactive sessions.


- After 2 hours of inactivity, a DIV or popup window is displayed asking to continue or close session

- If the user clicks the "continue" button then the timer re-sets for 2 hours and the session remains open.

- If the user does nothing or clicks the close button, then the sessions terminates and the browser page is redirected to the login page.

What is the best method to go about adding this functionality to a ColdFusion application?

Thank you and have a great day...

Thank you for the comments.  I was able to develop timeout functionality using JS and CFWINDOW.
