Looking for a way to move back to the previous page in ASP.NET


I need a function or a method I could use with a clickable button to move the user back to the previous page, whatever that page maybe - some thing like the back and forward arrows in MS Internet explorer.

Thank you

Assuming you have a btnBack on the page...

Hi aherps:

I tried your code in the manner below, but the page is posted back to itself.
<asp:ImageButton ID="Phone" runat="server" Width="45pt"
     ImageUrl="~/UploadImages2/phone.jpg" OnClientClick ="javascript:window.history.go(-1);";  />

Hi again aherps:

I found this on the internet and it worked:

OnClientClick="javascript:window.history.back();return false;"
How about a butto that moves to the next (forward) page ?
