Forward Button

Question: Can I make a button on my page work as the browser's Forward button?

Answer: To create your own Forward button, use this code

<form>
<input type=button value="Forward"
onCLick="history.forward()">
</form>
If your browser's Forward button is currently inactive, then the Forward button on your page won't work either. This is the case when the current page is the last page in your browsing history. On the other hand, if you arrived to the current page using the browser's Back button (or a scripted Back button) then the Forward button will work. Try it now!
