Thanks for the reply.

Any way my main requirement was if I can't disable it than hide the toolbar for application.
So, I open the application by using window.open() in first page and close the opner.

yes ... that would be one of the workarounds ... did you check whether the backspace-key might make a problem ... be sure to have no control focused in your page and press backspace ... usally that triggers the back-action ... ynd you may want to suppress that event?

kind regards

ok ... :) let me give you an example to avoid that in firefox/mozilla:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var event_keypress = function(e) {
  2.     var whitelist = { 'input': 1, 'textarea': 1 };
  3.     var target_n  = e.target.tagName.toLowerCase();
  5.     if (e.keyCode == 8 && !(target_n in whitelist)) {
  6.         e.preventDefault();
  7.     }
  8. }
  10. document.addEventListener('keypress', event_keypress, true);
this has to be adapted for IE which uses attachEvent() instead of addEventListene r() ...

kind regards

Is there any way to disable the client browser "Back" and "Forward" buttons while on my site? Or how would I go about knowing that a page hit is caused by a back/forward navigation? I have discovered that my web app is definately NOT Back/Forward safe. It's really messing with my SQL data bigtime. Thanks.

In my application, there are lot of processes which take several seconds. What we want is that once user clicks on a button (or link or whatever) and while we are processing that request, we don't want user to do anything else on the page. We want to disable everything. I have following javascript on all of my pages (which is supposed to work), but it doesn't work. <script language="JavaScript"> function ignoreinput() { return false;

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
