Logout confirmation dialog box

I have a menu item that exits the main app and redirects to login. I would like for it to display a confirmation dialog “Are you sure you want to logout? Any unsaved data will be lost”. Would I be able to achieve this with blank php? The only three events available in menu don’t allow “Display an error message” or “Display a message”. Would this be achievable with a PHP method? Is there anything to disallow a method from being called on one of the three menu events? I haven’t tried working with PHP methods in SC yet so I have no idea.

Hi Ancr2001,
Yes you can display a confirmation dialog.

  1. You need a blank application with this PHP Script using javascript:
echo "<script>
if (confirm('Your question')) { 
   // do other thing
  1. Replace ‘DESTINATION’ to your login app, example: ‘…/login_app/’;
  2. Your logout link must point to this blank application.

I got it working but I need it to kill the session when you click OK. How do I do that since you can’t put a macro in the script. Right now the else redirects to the login app and cancel takes you back to the menu. If I choose OK and click back and refresh after the redirect the menu comes back and the session is still active.

You can redirect using parameters.

Replace your ‘DESTINATION’ with your login app like ‘…/login_app/login_app.php?logout=1’; as you can see i add a ‘?logout=1’, now in your login app you must destroy the session onload.


Note: When your user is redirected with logout=1 the session will be destroyed.

Thanks! Works great. I had to modify the code a little because I was getting an undefined index error but now it works like a charm!
