When user clicks BACK, force refresh and auto scroll.

Hello,

I have an application which should never allow the back button to be pushed
without refreshing the previous page. For example:

Step 1:
User fills in form.html and presses submit

Step 2:
User see's results.html and clicks back to amend form

Step 3:
form.html MUST REFRESH ONCE and only once, which will do a few things on my
server before reloading the page.

Step 4:
After refresh, the page should SCROLL to the top of the page automatically

Pseudo Style:

If window.history. forward(1) exists
then
refresh this page and scroll to top
else
do nothing

I wonder if the following script can be modified to achieve my goal:

<script language="JavaS cript"><!--
javascript:wind ow.history.forw ard(1);
//--></script>

Any help greatly appreciated.

Badass.

Then your application is broken.

Set a cookie.
Step 4:
After refresh, the page should SCROLL to the top of the page automatically
Ummm, set the hash property of the location then.
Pseudo Style:

If window.history. forward(1) exists
then
refresh this page and scroll to top
else
do nothing
First, nothing in my History trail (if anything) is relevant or accessible.

Second. If I view your form and click a Favorites and navigate away
(without submitting the form), then click the Back button, your server
is gonna be hosed.
I wonder if the following script can be modified to achieve my goal:

<script language="JavaS cript"><!--
javascript:wind ow.history.forw ard(1);
//--></script>


Modified or scratched and start over?

I want to display HTML text inside a div and have the page open scrolled to the bottom.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
