--En-/Disable navigation programmatically

The standard application frame supports navigation between screens with Back/Forward buttons of the web browser. This feature is disabled by default. If you want to use the navigation with Back/Forward, simply add:

Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]



to the web.xml.

Above setting is for the whole application and for all users. If you want finer control, it's possible to en-/disable the navigation in your application code, programmatically. A common use-case is that you en-/disable the navigation per user. To do this, create your own application (see CustomApplication class).

Use following code snippet:

Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]
public void initUserRoles(String[] pRoles)

to en-/disable navigation.

It's important that you en-/disable the navigation in initUserRoles, because it's not possible to en-/disable the navigation after the menu was loaded.
