server.transfer url problem?

when doing a server.transfer using ASP.NET, the URL does not change to the new location... it stays set to the original location the user pointed to.

for example, user goes to http://www.somedomain.com/default.aspx, server.transfer redirects to http://www.somedomain.com/intro.htm. yet the URL in the browser address bar stays set to http://www.somedomain.com/default.aspx.

why is this? and is it a problem?

and does the browser contain the real transfered-to URL, but happens to show the wrong one?

thanks!

When you do Server.Transfer, the execution of thread shifts to new page. The execution of previous thread is not terminated. All the headers, response from redirecting page is carried on to new page. Where as when you do Response.Redirect, the execution of thread is terminated. You can do a very simple experiement. Call Response.Redirect but put the call within try/catch block and you will see that ThreadAbort exception is thrown. This is due to termination of current execution thread.

There is no problem with what you are observing.
