Back Button Problem

P: 18
hi,

When I click the back button in IE, some times i got the screen like,

[HTML]Warning: Page has Expired The page you requested was created using information you submitted in a form. This page is no longer available. As a security precaution, Internet Explorer does not automatically resubmit your information for you. [/HTML]

I want to rectify this.

suggest me.

Go to www.mozilla.com and download Firefox. Then take IE and stick it in the recycle bin!! Firefox always gives you the option to re-send the form data if you want, as well as generally being more secure that IE, blah blah...

The reason why you are seeing this is because the page you attempted to go back to requires data sent from a form via POST. Since you can't send that information in the URL, you'd have to either reload the form and resend the POST data, or else (the way Firefox and Safari do it) resend the POST data when you click 'Back'.

Note, however, that in the latter case, you're not pulling the data from your browser's cache; you're literally sending a new request to the server. So if you go 'back' to a page that adds a record to the database, you're actually going to be adding the record a second time!
