Join Bill Weinman for an in-depth discussion in this video Goodbye, part of HTML5: Managing Browser History.
In this course my goal was to give you a good understanding of the HTML5 session…history application programming interface.…I've covered how the API works, how to push items onto the history stack,…and how to register an event handler to receive notification of history…events, so you may update items on your page when a user presses the Back and Forward buttons.…As with most of the HTML5 application technologies, the specifications for HTML5…session history remain in flux.…I suggest that you keep up with these changes on the Web Hypertext Application…Technology Working Group web site in order to make sure that your code works…with current and future browsers.…
And be sure to check out the other HTML5 titles here on the lynda.com…Online Training Library.…As always, feel free to use my working examples as a starting point for your own…applications, and I look forward to seeing what you do with the HTML5 session…history API in your own projects.…
