You can't. (As far as I am aware)
What you *CAN* do, is dictate that your pages are never cached in the first place though. Response.CacheC ontrol or something like that should contain information on to do that.

try this,

//clears browser history and redirects url
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <SCRIPT LANGUAGE=javascript> 
  2. {
  4.   var Backlen=history.length;   history.go(-Backlen); 
  5.   window.location.href=page url
  7.  }
  9. </SCRIPT>

I found this at the below link

it worked for me...

This sounds like a terrible idea.

You're clearing a persons browser history...that means that all of their browsing history will be destroyed when they visit your site...they may actually depend on it to find some websites they forget the links to.

I would do as Plater says, state that your page is not to be cached by setting meta tags:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
Do this using the Response.CacheC ontrol that Plater was talking about.

Hi all, I've written this little piece of code, which doesn't seem to work in Mozilla 1.5. I haven't tried it on other Gecko browsers, but I've found some indication that Netscape 6+ has the same problem. Internet Explorer 6 and Opera 7 have no problems with it. <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC '-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN' 'http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd'> <script>document.write (window.history.length);</script>

Each time a webform is posted back (submitted), another URL is added to the browser's history list. My web application allows a back button to return to previously visited pages, but I do not wish to return to each Postback URL, but rather only the initial page URL. Is there a way to prevent Postback URL's from being added to the browser's history list Thanks in advance for any help.

I am working on an ASP.NET application that seems to be limiting browser histories to only one entry. I am not using SmartNavigation on any of the pages, and that is the only thing that I have seen in the documentation that says it limits the browser history. The pages in the application are in a single IIS folder, which is set up as an application and is NT password protected and SSL encrypted, and has the HTTP headers set to expire the...

I want to use history.go() to navigate between my previously loaded pages. I'm looking for a way to trigger a function call when a page is accessed using history.go(). Is there an event generated?
