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

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

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>

javascript window.history.back() issue with Modal popup extender



I have a asp.net page that has a list of items. When one of the items from the list is clicked a details page is displayed. This details page has a link button to show a popup for history of the item. The details page also has a button with text 'Back'.  The back button has onclick event set to  "javascript:window.history.back();".

This back button works fine and goes back to the first page. However when the user is on the second page and opens the pop up by clicking on the link button, the back button stop working and displays Webpage has expired message.

Any help would be appreciated.




can't disable back button history


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?

Post back puzzle


Hi, I have a website where the user makes a selection from a combo box and it then fills a couple text boxes with text based upon the selection. I'm sure as you know it could take a second for the text to appear in the text box due to the post back. I know there is no way to make it instantanious, so what I would like to do it fill the text box with somthing like "Loading Info..." so the user does not type in it while the information is loading.

If you would like to see what I mean please go to this page: www.epiclinks.com/create.aspx and mess around with the combo boxes and You'll see what I mean.

What I would like to do is have it do a post back to write "Loading Info..." and then do another post back to fill it in based upon their selection. How would I do this?

I'm up for anything, so if you have a better solution than that please let me know.

Personal view reverts back to default after updating properties of item


I am working with a company that has 1 site collection with several sub sites.  I have built 3 document libraries with workflow in 3 different sub sites and all behave as expected.  I have one site where ALL libraries do something perplexing;

If you are in a custom personal view and you go into the properties of a document and then exit (update or not, does not matter) it reverts back to the default view of that library. 

Has anyone seen this?  is there an option when creating an album that could cause this?

thanks in advance for any input on this odd issue.
