I was just browsing through the Ajaxian.com blog and noticed this post which talked about one of the issues known as the “back button” issue.
Basically, what do you do when the user clicks on the back button in the browser? Naturally, the user expects to see the previous state of the page before they interacted with it to make changes, right?
Let’s say we have a pageable datagrid and we navigate to other “pages”. When you navigate to the next page, and then click on the browsers’ back button, a users’ natural reaction is to hope for the previous page that they were just reading.
Brad Neuberg has a good post on this (which was linked to from the Ajaxian Blog).
Looks very interesting… From Brad’s blog:
