View Full Version : when using BorderLayout, how does back and forward work?

23 Nov 2006, 7:12 PM
In http://www.yui-ext.com/docs/ for example, there's a side nav in the west region. On clicking any link here, the content is displayed in the "main" region. My The brower back / forward buttons are working without the entire page being reloaded (the side nav does not get refreshed).

My question is how is this working?? I initially suspected that a frame is being generated however the rendered source does not show any frame being created. I was pleased to see this behavior, but would like to know how this is working?

It's an iframe that makes it work 'as expected'. It gets loaded onclick in the west. Jack responded to this kind of question here: http://www.yui-ext.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=821&highlight=iframe (see his second last comment on page one of that topic).
