The Location assign() method is used for loading a new document. It can also be used for loading a new document but the difference between these two methods is that the replace() method removes the URL of the current document from the document history and therefore it is not possible to navigate back to the original document using the “back” button. 



Parameters Used:

  1. URL: It is a mandatory parameter which specifies the URL of the page to navigate to.

Below program illustrates the Location assign() Method :

        body {
            text-align: center;
    <h2>Location assign() Method</h2>
    <p>For loading a new document, 
      double click the "Load Document" button: </p>
    <button ondblclick="load()">Load Document</button>
