How to issue "back" command from ASP.NET on the server

I have a web application written in classic ASP that  uses the following to return to a form if errors were found on it:

<a href="javascript:history.back(-1)">

This app is being modified to call an ASP.NET page to do some processing and display a report using Crystal Reports. If the user presses "Cancel" on the report I want to return to the previous page with the form data loaded.

You can trigger javascript from an asp event by adding an attribute to the sending control.
 
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
Button2.Attributes.Add("onClick", "javascript:history.back(); return false;")
End Sub
 
Protected Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
 
End Sub

Open in new window


To capture/trap a crystal reports cancel print event isn't as straight forward:
Detect Cancel From Crystal Report PrintSetup Dialogbox, but it is apparently doable.
