Hi..

I am trying to create logout link. When I click on the logout, it is taking me to the logon.aspx page. that is good. But, when i press the back button, it is taking me back to the default.aspx page - it should not.

This is what I have for logout:
        public void LoginLink_OnClick(object sender, EventArgs args)
        {
            Session.Abandon();
            Session.Contents.RemoveAll();
            FormsAuthentication.SignOut();
            FormsAuthentication.RedirectToLoginPage();
        }
and in the default.aspx page - form_load:
            if (HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated == false)
            {
                FormsAuthentication.RedirectToLoginPage();
            }

I also have some code in the void Application_AuthenticateRequest(Object sender, EventArgs e)
            String cookieName = FormsAuthentication.FormsCookieName;
            HttpCookie authCookie = Context.Request.Cookies[cookieName];
            if (null == authCookie)
            {//There is no authentication cookie.
                return;
            }

Looks like the cookie still contains login information, hence erase it as part session out.

Try this:
Response.Cookies.Remove(FormsAuthentication.FormsCookieName);

Thanks Maverick... but, I can still do the back button.. I put remove code in:

            Session.Abandon();
            Session.Contents.RemoveAll();
            FormsAuthentication.SignOut();
            Response.Cookies.Remove(FormsAuthentication.FormsCookieName);
            FormsAuthentication.RedirectToLoginPage();

Hi, it may be an issue with the browser keeping a copy of the page in cache, when you press the back button I believe the normal chain of events in a request don't get fired, try adding the following line to the top of your page_load event to ensure that the browser always asks for the page in the server:
Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.NoCache);

Open in new window
