    Removing the X

    Hi All,

    I am working with a web application that does not support the back button. The users use this application to enter their hours worked. I use the following to prevent users from using the back button:
    <!--Code Extract begins here,"","scrollbars=no,toolbar=no,menubar=no,resizable=yes,width=800,height=600");
    Code Extract ends here-->

    If a user does not log off the system there time records are locked for 1 hour (system timeout value). Closing the browser does not log the user off. Many phone calls are received from users who did not properly logoff and need the lock deleted. Is there an argument I can add to the call above to grey out the windows close X (upper left corner)? I tried close=no.

    If this functionality exists I will use window.close() to end the session when a user logs out properly.

    I cannot modify the application to reconize a closed browser as a logout (it is a plugin from our vendor SAP).

    You might want to try to set the browser in full screen mode so the titlebar isn't viewable, and place a nice "Logout" or "Close Window" somewhere, most users won't think about putting the window in non-fullscreen mode and closing it, they will just click...
