JavaScript question

At the top of every html page I have a navigation bar. Now, I would like to use javascript for the next and previous page image buttons, so I don't have to link every page to the image buttons myself and by making a list of pages I can easily change the order.

<!--
       function MakeArray(n) {
                this.length = n;
                for (var i =1; i <= n; i++) {
                        this[i] = 0}
                        return this
                        }

        Next = new MakeArray(4);

        Next[0] = "intro.html"  //-----example pages------
        Next[1] = "main.html"
        Next[2] = "next.html"
        Next[3] = "help.html"
        page = 0

        function Turnpage(vector) {
                Next[page]= top.location.href
                if (vector == 'next') {
                        if ( page == 3) {
                                page = 0
                                top.location = Next[page]
                                }
                        else {
                                ++page
                                top.location = Next[page]
                                }
                        }
                else {
                        if (page == 0 ) {
                                page = 3
                                top.location = Next[page]
                                }
                        else {
                                --page
                                top.location = Next[page]
                                }
                        }
        }

// -->

This is how far I came myself, but this doesn't work since every time the script is loaded into a new page it starts counting all over again. I wanted to use the current location.href. By knowing the current location it should be known what the next and the previous page is. How do I do this???

Thanks,
Anita van Dijk

Hoi anita je kunt gebruik maken van het history object.
history.back() is de back functie
history.forward() is de forward functie
history.go(aantal_pagina's) is de functie waarmee je aan kunt geven hoeveel pagina's je voor of achteruit wilt. Zet een - om achteruit te gaan.

Als dit niet precies is wat je zoekt zet dan nog even een comment.

Dit is niet wat ik zoek. Het gaat er juist om dat het niet altijd om de history bladzijde gaat. Het gaat erom dat een gebruiker kris kras kan navigeren maar ook op volgorde. Als een gebruiker dan zomaar ergens naartoe springt moet het vanaf daar mogelijk zijn om de vantevoren vastgelegde volgorde weer aan te houden (zowel vooruit als achteruit) door de juiste URL uit een lijst met URLs te halen ofzo.

Het onderstaande script is wat je wilt. Je kunt nu 5 pagina's maken met de namen in de nextpage array. In elk van deze pagina's kun je dit script zetten. Door op de back and forward button te klikken kun je vooruit of achteruit gaan. Ik heb dit getest in Netscape 3.

<html>
<head>
<title>demo</title>
<script language="Javascript">
nextpage = new Array("intro.html", "navigatie.html","main.html", "next.html", "help.html");

function getfilename() {
      filename= "";
  for (i= document.location.pathname.lastIndexOf("/")+1; i<= document.location.pathname.length; i++) {
        filename+= document.location.pathname.charAt(i);
      }
      return filename;
}

function goforward() {
  filename= getfilename();
      for (i= nextpage.length; i>= 0; i--) {
            if (filename== nextpage[i]) {
              if (i+1< nextpage.length && nextpage[i+1]!= null) {
                    document.location.href= nextpage[i+1];
                        break;
                  }
            }
      }
}

function goback() {
  alert(document.location.href.toString());
  filename= getfilename();
      for (i= nextpage.length; i>= 0; i--) {
            if (filename== nextpage[i]) {
              if (i-1>= 0 && nextpage[i-1]!= null) {
                    document.location.href= nextpage[i-1];
                        break;
                  }
            }
      }
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form>
<input type=button onclick="goback()" value="back">
<input type=button onclick="goforward()" value="forward">
</form>
</body>
</html>
