Disable back button

Hi, just wondering if there is a way to disable the back button of the
browser as I have a logoff page and would like to not allow the back
operation? Guessing there may be a way to do it through java script.

You'd think there would be, but there's not.
A common approach is to close the window, and open a new one if you must.
This new window will have no history so the back button will be disabled.

ok thanks for the information. Do you use java script on the client side to
close the window and if so what event corresponds to the back button
selection?

It is possible to disable history logging. But you should do every
navigation using javascript. It is the difference between
window.location.reload and window.location.replace.

Replace overwrites the history entry while reload allows browser to log
history. Also another difference between them is browser supporting
versions.
