can't disable back button history

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

we have a web form with check boxes on.

When we click our back button the page only returns to the previous state (un checking the check boxes one by one after each click).
We would like it to go back to the previous page and remember the history of the page.

I've tried :EnableHistory="false"  

but this just crashes the page.

our javascript button looks like this:

<input type="button" value="Back" onclick="history.go(-1)" />

(the browser back button does the same thing)

any ideas?

Disable Browser Back Button Using Javascript ASP.NET


 Hi... Am using following script, disable back browser, it works well, only in Chrome, if i try ie it says .. Webpage has expired,   any simple method is there? but it should suitable for browsers !

<script type = "text/javascript" >
    function disableBackButton() {
    setTimeout("disableBackButton()", 0);

<body onunload="disableBackButton()">
Protected Overloads Overrides Sub OnPreRender(ByVal e As EventArgs)
        Dim strDisAbleBackButton As String
        strDisAbleBackButton = ""
        ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(Me.Page.[GetType](), "clientScript", strDisAbleBackButton)
End Sub

Posting back a disabled button


Folks, I have a control which inherits from LinkButton and I'm trying to make sure that the user cannot cause mayhem by performing multiple postbacks.  That seemed an easy enough challenge, so I have this code [snippet] on the client:

ButtonClicked: function () {
    if (this._DisableOnClick == true) {
        this.get_element().disabled = 1;
        this.get_element().style.cursor = 'wait';
    else {
        alert('Posting back');

The alert is of course only there for debugging.  If the DisableOnClick value is false, then I see the "Posting Back" alert and, when I click ok, the postback occurs - all good.

If the DisableOnClick value is true, then the "button" gets disabled and the cursor turns into an hourglass - again good.  But the postback doesn't happen - not good.  I assume that the ASP client code is trying to help by preventing the postback when it sees that the link is disabled.

So, how can I either:

  • Persuade the LinkButton to postback even though it has just been disabled; or
  • [probably better] Get my client code to execute immediately after the postback code rather than before.



What is the ASP.NET equivalent of history.back()


I'm converting a static site to ASP.NET. Each page has PREVIOUS and NEXT links. If a page has a specified PREVIOUS link in the database, I want to use that, otherwise send the user back to the last page visited (which used to be <a href="#" onclick="history.back(); return false;">)

What would be the correct syntax for: (insert code won't work, maybe because I'm using Opera?)

<a href="<%# IIf(Nz(Eval("intWebPageID_Previous"),0)>0, string.concat("Dynamic.aspx?w=", Eval("intWebSiteID"),"&p=", Eval("intWebPageID_Previous")), **LAST PAGE VISITED** %>"><span>Previous</span></a>


Back Button for Parent Report

Hello all, I have created a summary report and have the hyperlink set up to jump to another detail report. In BIDS, when I get to the detail report, there is an option to go back to the parent report. But when I publish these reports to Report Manager, that back button is not there. Does anyone know a workaround to this? I really want the user to be able to go back to the summary report when they are done looking at the details. We are working on SSRS 2005. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Web Form breaks after using the browser's back button

I have a web form that allows a user to put some data in a textbox and click a button to do a search on that data.  It opens up a Sql Server Reporting Services report using the data they entered on the previous page.  If they use the browser's back button to go back and enter some different criteria to search on, the buttons don't work anymore. Any ideas or suggestions on what would cause this?   Thanks!
