HTMLIFrameElement.goForward()

Non-standard
This feature is not on a current W3C standards track, but it is supported on the Firefox OS platform. Although implementations may change in the future and it is not supported widely across browsers, it is suitable for use in code dedicated to Firefox OS apps.

This API is available on Firefox OS for privileged or certified applications only.

The goForward() method of the HTMLIFrameElement is used to navigate forward in the browser <iframe>'s history.

By calling this method, the browser <iframe> changes its location to the next location available in its navigation history, which sends a series of related events: mozbrowserlocationchange, mozbrowserloadstart and so on.

Syntax

instanceOfHTMLIframeElement.goForward();

Returns

Void.

Parameters

None.

Examples

fwd.addEventListener('touchend',function() {
  browser.goForward();
});

Specification

Not part of any specification.
