I am trying to detect when a user clicks on the refresh button on the browser menu. I recently began working on a business application adn there seems to be a bug when the user clicks the refresh button. More specifically, it behave as a submit action to the server; thereby creating a new request for this application and that is NOT good. Please provide any details.

Aj,
There isn't a way to know that the refresh button was hit per se. However, you can store a token in the session so that if the user submits the same request again, you don't process it.
