SHNavigateBack (Windows CE 5.0)

Send Feedback

For Windows Mobile-based devices, the SHNavigateBack function performs the default handling of pressing the back button by returning to the previous application on the device.

**Note   **The SHNavigateBack function is not implemented for Windows CE-based devices. It is provided as a stub in the operating system (OS) for application compatibility.


void SHNavigateBack(void);



Return Values



For SmartPhone: When the BACK button is pressed, the device will automatically return to the previous application unless the current application overrides the BACK key. If an application overrides the BACK key, the device will not return to the previous application unless this function is called. Applications can be made to override the BACK key by sending the SHCMBM_OVERRIDEKEY message to the menu bar.
