I could use a Telerik ASP.NET AJAX control that encapsulates functionality as described in Using ASP.NET to Prompt a User to Save When Leaving a Page.

The idea is to display a modal RADWindow when the user is about to navigate away from a page that's "dirty" (has unsaved data). It would be nice to have a mechanism that tracks the "dirty" status automatically. Most approaches seem to require handling the tracking manually which would be a pain on a busy page.

Hi Ken,

Currently we don't have plans for such control. In addition, I am afraid that RadWindow cannot be used in such scenario - the control is created and handled on the client only and unlike the browser's dialogs (confirm, prompt), radconfirm() and radprompt() cannot block the execution thread - this is something that cannot be done with JavaScript.

How about a control that implements Confirm() and that highlights unsaved data?

Something like the dirtyFields jQuery plugin would really be useful:
