This page is the first in a series addressing navigation. It uses history to navigate from one page to another. Other page in this series are:
The following form buttons go to the next or previous page in history, as appropriate. They act just like the back and forward buttons on the browser. I don't see much use for them but sometimes the user might prefer to use the page to navigate than to use the browser. It seems more professional to do this!
I don't see much use for them because they just duplicate the browser's button. And it is better to send the reader to a specific page than to sent him or her back in history. Sometimes, they are appropriate, however.
Here is the code for the form:
<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="<< Back" onClick="Back1()">
<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="Forward >>" onClick="Forward1()">
Here is the script:
The script uses the simple 'history.go()' with values for +1 (forward) and -1 (backwards).
