How do i find whether a user is connected to the net by writing a java script?

ha mo, Colin Fraser, sumana gv,

Do you want some way to detect if the user is viewing your page while in
your site? Or do you mean that you want a way to detect if the user is
actually viewing your page from their own hard drive? Simple, maybe and
i am not going to provide you with the code, you can do that yourself. 
In the <body> tag place an onLoad() statement calling a function that
looks for something at a specific location that is not downloadable by
the user. The seach must be on a location that cannot be found on any
user's ccomputer. If the browser cannot get an expected response, then
set a boolean which is used in a second function that displays a message
saying that the browser could not find something therefore the user is
actually off-line.  
Good luck.
