Or if it is, I don't know. I'm not a javascript expert, just stumbled over this solution on the web and wrote it down here. Sorry, can't help you any further with that. Hi Bharani,

Showing the popup message is the last thing that happens in the onbeforeunload event/method, and after that, #javascript is not running any more, so you can’t do anything in your script to react to the user’s input. I’m sorry. You could do a workaround by storing the #information that the user tried to close the window BEFORE showing the message, like this: ok but the return value is sent to where? i need that one so if we find means we can handle the allthings of browser is possible means we are done. mohan.bharani@gmail.com #Hi Bharani,

Showing the popup message is the last thing that happens in the onbeforeunload event/method, and after that, javascript is not running any more, so you can't do anything in your script to react to the user's input. I'm sorry. You could do a workaround by storing the information that the user tried to close the window BEFORE showing the message, like this: <code> <html><body> <script type="text/javascript"> triedToClose=false; window.onbeforeunload = function() { triedToClose = true return "Did you save your stuff?" } function checkClosing() { if (triedToClose) { alert("user tried to close the window but changed his mind") } else { alert("user didn't try to close the window") } } </script> <pre> To use: 1. click on the test link, see what happens. 2. try to close the window (browser (x)) - then select "stay on page" 3. click on the test link again - see that the message changed. <a href="#" onclick="checkClosing()" rel="nofollow">Some test link</a> </pre></body></html> </code> Please note that you can only evaluate the result if the user performs some action on your page, such as clicking on the test link. You would need to add the checkClosing() call to all your links and buttons and could even add it to the onbeforeunload function itself. not very elegant but the best I can do. Hope this helps! Hi Bharani,

I don’t think you can find out the return value. Showing the popup message is the last thing that happens in the onbeforeunload event/method, and after that, javascript is not running any more, so you can’t do anything in your script to react to the user’s input. I’m sorry. You could do a workaround by storing the information that the user tried to close the window BEFORE showing the message, like this:

<html><body>
<script type="text/javascript">
triedToClose=false;
window.onbeforeunload = function() {
triedToClose = true
return "Did you save your stuff?"
}

function checkClosing() {
if (triedToClose) {
alert("user tried to close the window but changed his mind")
} else {
alert("user didn't try to close the window")
}
}
</script>

<pre>
To use:

1. click on the test link, see what happens.
2. try to close the window (browser (x)) - then select "stay on page"
3. click on the test link again - see that the message changed.

<a href="#" onclick="checkClosing()" rel="nofollow">Some test link</a>
</pre></body></html>

Please note that you can only evaluate the result if the user performs some action on your page, such as clicking on the test link. You would need to add the checkClosing() call to all your links and buttons and could even add it to the onbeforeunload function itself. not very elegant but the best I can do.
