@URLOpen and Back Navigation

I have the following code, and it works.

My problem is if you click the Back button it brings up the previous window and will put the login page in various frames. Then if I click the refresh or reload button next to the URL the entire page will display the login screen.

Any ideas why this is happening ?
@URLOpen("http://" + @GetHTTPHeader("Host") + "/" + @WebDbName + "?Logout")

It looks like you are logging out, so a login screen would be expected.

Do you know of an @Function or @Command that can verify whether a user is logged in ?

If I refresh the individual frames, the login page will appear in each. 2 of them still show the views associated with them. They are apart of a DB that allows Anonymous.

Since Anonymous does not require a log in, that makes sense.

I don't know if this is what you need or if you can use it.  Personally, I use a check to see if the login page is being displayed in one frame and then reload the entire db again.  Here it is:

In the onload, put:

checkForExpiredSession()

In the JSHeader put:

(See Code Snippet)
var frameName
var doc
var timerTemp
var i
var timeOutTime = 0
var urlTemp
 
function checkForExpiredSession() {
	for (i=1; i < 4; i++) {
		if (parent.frames[i] != null) {
			if (parent.frames[i].document != null) {
				if (parent.frames[i].document.forms[0] != null) {
					if (parent.frames[i].document.forms[0].action != null) {
						if (parent.frames[i].document.forms[0].action != "") {
							doc = parent.frames[i].document.forms[0]
							tempString = doc.action.toUpperCase()
							if (tempString.indexOf( ".NSF?LOGIN" ) > 0) {
								window.top.location = urlTemp
								return false
							}
						}
					}
				}
			}
		}		
	}
	
	//Set timeout initially to 30 minutes before checking.
	if (timeOutTime == 0) {
		timeOutTime = 30
		timerTemp = setTimeout( "checkForExpiredSession()", 1800000 )
	} else {
		timerTemp = setTimeout( "checkForExpiredSession()", 2000 )
	}
}

The only thing that happened was it added the login screen to a couple of the other frames. I need the entire page to go to the login screen. By default if you aren't logged in it will go to our login screen. Is there a way to force "_top" to refresh if they aren't logged in ?

The code I provided is for one frame, preferrably a static frame, which loads once.  This frame manages the check for a login and if a login page is found in any other frame, it will load the "top" or frameset with the login url.  So, put the code into one of your frames that loads once when the frameset loads, or create a new hidden frame that opens a page with this code on it, then the next time it sees any of your frames with a login, it will load the top with the login url.

Let me know if you need further help.  Good Luck.

We went with:

@URLOpen("http://" + @GetHTTPHeader("Host") + "/" + @WebDbName + "?Logout")

And use the following when we want to do a redirect:

@URLOpen("http://" + @GetHTTPHeader("Host") + "/" + @WebDbName + "?Logout&redirectto=http://" +  + @GetHTTPHeader("Host"))
