you cannot run PHP code in a Javascript function. You'll have to make an AJAX call to your logout script.

thanks for your reply can you give the example of ajax code to update table when user close the browser.

i doubt if there's any full proof way of handling the browser close event.. Ideally what should happen is :
1) javascript captures the browser's close event
2) and makes an ajax call to the server for further processing
But a browsers behaviour would be to stop doing anything(stop sending any requests) when its closing.. so you can't be 100% sure. Please correct me if i am wrong

You better use sessions for that.

i found in this sort of situation is to create a session timeout script in a include file that way if even a guest comes onto my site it will run the script to see if any logged in members / visiting guests unix timestamp has expired.


// check active members / guests

$guest = time() - 2 * 60; // 2 minutes
$member = time() - 5 * 60; // 5 minutes

$sql = mysql_query("DELETE FROM active_guests WHERE time_visited < ".$gues);
$sql1 = mysql_query("DELETE FROM active_members WHERE time_visited < ".$member);

// this will check the current UNIX timestamp and compare with the values in each table to see if the session has expired, if so this will delete the rows in the tables


then you can run a function to see if the user is online or offline



// get user online status

function getonlinestatus($uid) {
    $sql = "SELECT username FROM users WHERE id='".$uid."' LIMIT 1";
    $res = mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());
    $rowSEC = mysql_fetch_assoc($res);
    $user = $rowSEC['username'];

    $sql1 = "SELECT username FROM active_members WHERE username='".$rowSEC['username']."' LIMIT 1";
    $res1 = mysql_query($sql1) or die(mysql_error());
    $row1 = mysql_fetch_assoc($res1);
    if ($row1['username'] == "") { return "IM OFFLINE"; } else { return "IM ONLINE RIGHT NOW"; }


// then call this php function anywhere on your site IE profile

<?php echo getonlinestatus($row['id']); ?>

This is a Test

I've had some of those issues recently...
