I was wondering if there was a way to open up a page and after let say 15 seconds the window would automatically close?

Any help will be greatly appreciated,

<script type="text/javascript">
setTimeout('self.close()',15000);
</script>


however i think you will get a confirmation "are you sure you want to close window?" message

Yep, you're right

Is there a way to bypass that message?

I believe I have read on this website previously, that if you open the new window as a pop up rather than a new window, you do not get that message when the pop up closes. I have seen here some free scripts that show you how to do exactly what you are asking - you simply nominate the amount of time to elapse before the pop-up window closes automatically. You can specify the size of the pop up window, and what attributes (if any) you want shown in the window.

Actually, with a slight modification of zoobie's script from here:

http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=11890

it is possible:

<html>
<head>
<title>Self Close</title>
<script>
setTimeout("bye()",15000)
function bye() {
self.opener = this;
self.close()
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

hey borgtex there is a way to close a window without a message, it uses the active X controls, and I forget who, but somebody else in this forum knows how, ill reasearch this, and be back with you in short time

I implemented the following code:

<script type="text/javascript">
setTimeout('self.close()',15000);
</script>

But as someone stated before (I think), that you do not get the confirmation if you use it conjuction with a popup window. That is currently how I am using and I do not get the Confirmation. FYI

Thanks,
