How to check session timeout from javascript and redirect to login page


    var sessionTimeout = <%= Session.Timeout %>

    function DisplaySessionTimeout() {
           sessionTimeout = sessionTimeout - 1;
           window.setTimeout("DisplaySessionTimeout()", 60000);
            if (sessionTimeout == 0) {
                 window.location = "../Login.aspx";
Here the  above mentioned script need to be called in the PageLoad of the page which works like a timer. This may be on serverside (or) clientside.

Server side pageload as follows :

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
             Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "onLoad", "DisplaySessionTimeout();",true);                       

Client side page load as follows :

function pageLoad()

Description :

<%= Session.Timeout %> will get the time which we have given on "web.config".
Forevery minute it will check the session time and get logged out when session get expired.

Implement this script on "MasterPage" will be useful for entire application which are linked to it.
