View Full Version : Is there a workaround for history.go(url) for IE?

08-26-2002, 07:17 PM
history.go(url) works for Netscape 4.x and 6.x but doesn't seem to work for IE5x or 6x. Anyone have any suggestions to do something like this in IE?

Thanks - Cheri

According to this page (http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/author/dhtml/reference/methods/go.asp) that should work. Are you using absolute URLs?

At first, I had the pgm name only add_form.cgi. Then I tried 2) passing the full url w/o the parameters and then I tried 3)passing the full url with all the parameters. All 3 ways didn't work in IE. The 3rd way didn't work for Netscape either.

Oops. When I entered the full URL, I had the wrong file name. It works now but I have to enter the full URL with all the parameters - guess IE looks for an exact match while Netscape can use a substring.
