How would i detect if a person has used the back button? What I would like to do is to if the back button was used, I will show an alert or a warning message not to use it and/or display a message then log the person of.

Comment Not sure-- check-out the JavaScript events you can attach to window, document and/or form objects, and you should be able to detect-- we also now have a Java applet (SSCheck) that queries using a page number-- we can add some functionality to SSCheck to give you what you are looking for.

You may want to really think twice, since the backbutton is pretty valuable-- you can also prevent backbutton utility by disabling the cache.
