Is there a way to have a Javascript link Go Back and Refresh a page I just uploaded files to.


Currently I'm using this for Go Back. Just need to figure out out to refresh
<a href="javascript:history.go(-1)">
&lt;&lt; Go Back
</a>

Thanks

<a href="jvaascript:history.go(-1);window.location = window.location.href">

or you could use the reload() function aswell.

That does say, you cannot influence the previous page in no way.

You could do this however, On the page you are going back too (the previous one)  you could include the code such that

if Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER") = forwardPage.asp Then
  <script> window.location = window.location.href</Script>
end if

... you'd just have to get the HTTP_REFERER for whatever language you are writing in. ( example is in ASP )

Cheers ?

and yes Zvonko was correct about my post, I forgot that as soon as you say .go() it leaves the page.  I thought you could maybe throw it an extra argument,

Thanks Zvonko,

Cheers,

So on the page I'm going back to it should be like this?

<%
if Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER") = upload_success.asp Then
  <script> window.location = window.location.href</Script>
end if
/%>

No. For two reasons: wrong syntax and even when the Server side is evaluated correctly, then you need no reload ;-)

I would do it like this:
<script>
if(document.referrer.indexOf("user.htm")>-1 && location.hash.indexOf("#reloaded")<0){
  window.location=window.location.href+"#reloaded";
}
</script>

Sorry, user.htm was my test referer. You need of course your "upload_success.asp" as search string.

Here are two clean ways:

OPTION 1:  Use Buttons

<table><tr>
<td><input type="button" value="Refresh Page" onclick="window.location.reload()"></td>
<td><input type="button" value="Go Back" onclick="javascript:history.back()"></td>
</tr></table>


OPTION 1:  Use Links
<a href="javascript:history.back()">   CLICK HERE TO GO BACK    </a>
<a href="javascript:window.location.reload()">CLICK HERE TO REFRESH </a>
