Hi Sabari, There is no Timers in Asp.net , instead you can use a javascript function and keep a settimeout function instead. so when setting this properly in proper place , i guess this can be done. I am roughly illutrating this for example when clicking on a play button will trigger the setTimeout(10000)(see some where the exact syntax) on doing this , and obviously you might have the user who logged in some where in the page. so with that , you can change the time accordingly and if the time is out of limit provided then do as needed like var btnStop=ocument.getelementbyid("StopButton").id; btnStop.click ( or what ever action you want it to be made to) Best wishes for your project. -Hari

Hi Sabari, I am not sure weather the following suggestion might help . 1) you cannot connect the client side javascript with the database. instead you can use some hidden field value to store the seconds for the paricular user when the page loads. and check for the timer using the time out as i suggested before Beast regards, A.Sivakumar

Hi hari, thanks for your reply. i will check and say. and can you check this is working or not [code] Response.AppendHeader("Refresh", Convert.ToString((Session.Timeout * 60) + 10) & "; URL=Login.aspx") [/code] Now i have a window say(viewonline.aspx.cs) running media player and i am also using Sessions for counter. if the user close that window, a POP-UP window should come having some message and 2 buttons ''YES'' and ''NO''. if i press ''YES'' the counter value should update in the Database, if ''NO'' no action, it should continue to display the movie. please help me..... how can i display a pop-up window while closing the window ''[X]''? Please do help me!!!!! Thanks in Advance!!!! Sabareeswaren.
