The History interface allows manipulation of the browser session history, that is the pages visited in the tab or frame that the current page is loaded in.

Variables

read onlylength:Int

Returns an Integer representing the number of elements in the session history, including the currently loaded page. For example, for a page loaded in a new tab this property returns 1.

scrollRestoration:ScrollRestoration

Allows web applications to explicitly set default scroll restoration behavior on history navigation. This property can be either auto or manual.

read onlystate:Dynamic

Returns an any value representing the state at the top of the history stack. This is a way to look at the state without having to wait for a popstate event.

Methods

back ():Void

Goes to the previous page in session history, the same action as when the user clicks the browser's Back button. Equivalent to history.go(-1). Calling this method to go back beyond the first page in the session history has no effect and doesn't raise an exception.

	@throws DOMError

forward ():Void

Goes to the next page in session history, the same action as when the user clicks the browser's Forward button; this is equivalent to history.go(1). Calling this method to go forward beyond the most recent page in the session history has no effect and doesn't raise an exception.

	@throws DOMError

@:value({ delta : 0 })go (delta:Int = 0):Void

Loads a page from the session history, identified by its relative location to the current page, for example -1 for the previous page or 1  for the next page. If you specify an out-of-bounds value (for instance, specifying -1 when there are no previously-visited pages in the session history), this method silently has no effect. Calling go() without parameters or a value of 0 reloads the current page. Internet Explorer lets you also specify a string to go to a specific page in the history list.

Throws:

null

DOMError

pushState (data:Dynamic, title:String, ?url:String):Void

Pushes the given data onto the session history stack with the specified title and, if provided, URL. The data is treated as opaque by the DOM; you may specify any JavaScript object that can be serialized.  Note that Firefox currently ignores the title parameter; for more information, see manipulating the browser history.

Throws:

null

DOMError

replaceState (data:Dynamic, title:String, ?url:String):Void

Updates the most recent entry on the history stack to have the specified data, title, and, if provided, URL. The data is treated as opaque by the DOM; you may specify any JavaScript object that can be serialized.  Note that Firefox currently ignores the title parameter; for more information, see manipulating the browser history.

Throws:

null

DOMError
