Scenario to detect the Browser refresh or close Button of the User Click:
In Some Scenarios where user in the Application do not Log out properly In that case my application should track the User session Log out time entry in database.Even my application have a log out button but the User will not Log out properly he will click close button in the browser and exit the application.So when the User click Close button in Java script the onbeforeUnload Event comes to Picture and add server-side programming to track the Session log out (by giving a hidden.click event or Web service method or JQuery or Ajax method in script tags).But if you carefully observe there is a one more action in it that is browser refresh(by mouse click) it will also raise the event onbeforeunload(Unfortunately there is no key code like refresh F5 for Mouse Click). But some how the other we should stop this entry in the Database.How to differentiate these two things how it is possible i will describe in this article.
See the below real time Images and Code
In my Master Page Code....
The below image shows the Adress bar refresh(by Mouse Click).
Now the Code to detect the Refresh button or Close button is only by adding this code in Java script.
window.event.clientX >= 1300
Now see the Output images how it looks...
Now i click close button through a Mouse Click see how the out put
My debugger in the Server side after clicking close....
if the Refresh is F5 we can easily predict by keycharcode.
Now i am successful to make an entry in the database table.
see in the Database table entry ....
Summary : Here i made a check that if the window Client x Coordinate is less than 1300 and it raises the onbeforeUnload event than it is a refresh if the window Client x Coordinate is greater than or equal to 1300 than i assumed it a close.Even when you are working with gaming software the Client coordinates are very Useful.
This is a nice article,and superb understanding thanks,
