Generaladd an "onbeforeunload" handler to the article editor to prevent accidental loss Pin

Currently, on the article editor at the following URL...

http://www.codeproject.com/script/Articles/Edit.aspx?aid=xxxxx

One can spend a long time editing an article, and then an accidental "navigate" off the page causes all that work to be LOST!

This is especially problematic because the editor often loses key-focus, and browsers often map the backspace key to "back", so when the editor loses key focus while you are backspacing, often it causes a "back navigate" which then loses the article content.

However, there is an EASY fix for this and other problems related to navigating away. Simply set up a javascript handler for "onbeforeunload". If the user accidentally tries to navigate off the page, the dialog will give them the chance to cancel the navigate before it destroys all their work. All that's needed is the following javascript added to the page:

window.onbeforeunload = function() {
    return 'You have unsaved changes!';
}

Then, a small javascript handler should be added to the buttons which "validly" leave the page which turn off this handler.
