    Closing WEB from X-top-right not firing .unload

    Don't know if I'm missing something here or if I screwed it up.

    But on the pop up window I'm working on I have a control (button) for closing the window.
    What I want to do is to be able to have control over the X on the top right corner of the screen so I can trigger a little C# code before actually saying goodbye to the pop up.

    this example
    $(window).unload( function () { alert("Bye now!"); } );
    is firing when I hit my own button for closing the window:
    but it's definetely not when I hit the X button. (tried traditional javascript and it's the same)

    Any ideas?

    Closing a browser window is not considered 'unloading'. If you were to navigate from your page to another page, unload would fire.
