run php when closing browser window?

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I am creating a login component which stores a simple Y/N value in a MySQL database depending on if the login was successful or not. I need to somehow reset this to N when the user closes the browser window. What would be the best way to achieve this with PHP? I can create the sql statement, but how would I go about running a function when the window is closed?

Thank you for your time.

I dont think this is possible, Powecuts, Illegal Shut downs ect

The best way to find out who is online is
add a field into the DB, last_action or something, as DATETIME field
On the top of every page, have a script
If the user is logged in,
Update the table with last action of that date time

Anyone who has action within the last 10 minutes you can assume they are online

the onbeforeunload javascript event can be used to open a popup window that will call the php script to do the job. However, this does work across all the browsers
