Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <script language="JavaScript">
  2. <!--
  3. window.document.onkeydown = Backkeyhandler;
  5. function Backkeyhandler() {
  6.     if (window.event && window.event.keyCode == 8) {
  8.          // alert("BackSpace Pressed !!");

Why would you want to disable the back button? There may be an alternative.

If it's for a web application where the user would lose unsaved work, use onbeforeunload.
