Back button click of browser is cannot be directly identified by any way as it is a client side browser button event! Even can't be identified by client side script.
When you click Back button, browser just reloads the previous page's rendered HTML - No events are triggered for this browser button click event.
To be more clear, IE Back button is completely independent of the content of your page.

Since there are no direct methods to acheive this, you can try some alternative methods
One option is disable the caching, so that even on click back button previous page will not load

Or

BUT YOU CAN CATCH PAGE UNLOAD EVENT USING JQUERY, when user clicks on IE back button

This method - I already tested and working fine.

The above link says about showing a message box. Instead of the message box, you need to place a dummy button in your aspx page . Put you page_load codes into a function. Call that function in page_load. Call the same function in dummy button click (this button should be hidden)

Hope this helps!

From the link that I posted above.
Attached the js files that I modified for my purpose
 jquery.js
 navigateaway.js
 navigateaway.min.js
// Javascript file references in ASPX Page
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.js"></script>
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="js/navigateaway.min.js"></script>

Open in new window


// Dummy button
.....
 <asp:Button id="Dummybtn" runat="server" style="display:none;" />
    </form>

Open in new window

// Code-Behind Button click event

 Protected Sub Dummybtn_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Dummybtn.Click
        pageLoadCodes()
    End Sub

Open in new window


If you check inside navigateaway.min.js file , you can see the code
$('#Dummybtn').trigger('click');

Open in new window

which calls the button click

I tried to explain the steps that I done to reduce your learning process. Not sure whether I missed anything.
