Unfortunately I am only Tester, and can't help you to develop the system :)

At first must be fixed ability to redirect via login. Andreas did some coding about, but it's currently broken and didn't work.

Just an idea I got. A timer could be run in the background. If it reaches zero a popup dialog is displayed. Via this dialog the user can login to renew session. Dialog closes. No redirection was made.
Because the user has not left the "Create Test Case" page, all text remains.

This dialog could maybe be made in ajax and block interaction until session is renewed.

Yes, I'm aware that such javascript already exists for some applications. I believe there is already issue for it in our tracker.

FKCeditor has some plugins to do autosave => this code can be used as starting point for development => please no development from scratch

I have seen some work on this coming and going. A countdown was shown next to logout in some cvs version, but now it is gone.

What is the status of this feature? Who is working on it (if anyone)?

I think Martin has done some work on this issue

Current solution in cvs is not good. It's a js alert box that tells session has expired. The timeout also is wrong in current solution.

I talked to Martin and he thinks my proposed solution (above: 0007484) sounds good.

Before I start coding I'd like to know what pages needs this feature? I think the timer should be per page and not one global timer. (Global timer and frames could be hard)

I think the pages where losing data should have this timer feature.
 - Create/edit test case
 - Execute test case
 - (other pages with FCKEditor)

I have another solution in my mind. Remove the timer countdown in js (it depends on things).

Pseudo code:
on_form_submit = function() {
    logged_in = ajax call to lib/ajax/checkLogin.php
    if (logged_in)

lib/ajax/checkLogin.php checks if the user is logged in or not

What do you think?
