Is it possible to disable the back-button, from the server side??

Hi

I was wondering, is it possible to disable the back button in internet
explorer.
Our Website is hosting a Siebel website, and the problem is that Siebel has
problems with the use of the back button in internet explorer. I can't make a
customized internet explorer because the site must be accesible anywere.
So i need to do it from the server side... Any Ideas??

Thanks in Advance,

Add this code in the page you don't want your users to come back:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=javasc ript>
<!--
history.go(+1);
//-->
</SCRIPT>

So, in other words , since you provided client-side script, the answer is
that it is not possible to disable the back button from the server-side
code.

This solution may have unintended consequences. Instead of attempting to
mess with the users' browsers, engineer your application so that it will not
matter if the back button is used. I don't know what a "Siebel website" is,
so I cannot get specific.

Hi. What's the best way to display an image, disabling the user's ability to right-click on it? I believe you have to use <body oncontextmenu="return false">. Would the following work? var x = "<head><\/head><body oncontextmenu="return false"><img src='temp.jpg' border=0><\/body>" top.document.open()

Hello, So I would like to disable a textbox on a vb.net form without the text getting grayed out. In vb6 I could place a textbox control on a frame control and disable the frame leaving the textbox enabled and text/background were intact but mouse cursor remained an arraw (as opposed to an I for editable). I tried a Panel control on my .net form since I could I guess there is no longer a frame control (also tried a groupbox control)....

How can I disable events for the controls on a form? I tried setting the form's enable property to false, but that doesn't stop events from firing on its controls.

Does anyone know how to disable javascript in the new Netscape 8 -- for off line testing (like can be done readily with the current MSIE, Firefox or Opera browsers) ? When I try tools -> options -> site controls -> web features and check or uncheck the 'enable javascript' box, nothing changes -- it stays enabled. I've searched FAQs, archives and google about the issue, with no luck.
