Rule The Back Button of A Browser by ASP.NET
I recently needed to find a way to manage the back button of a browser for one of my applications at the work. I have found some forum entries and blog posts about the subject, but they were all some kind of complex solutions. All I wanted to do was just performing a single line code and redirecting to the main page when the user clicks the back button.
After spending couple of hours, here is the 4-step way that I came up with at the end.
First, assign an ID to the “body” tag in order to be able to call it in the Page_Load event:
Place a hidden HTML button control with an “onserverclick” event inside the page:
Add an “onunload” event (which will force a postback via Button1) to the “body” tag:
Finally, define the “onserverclick” event which was assigned to Button1 before:
Hope this helps!
