Hassan,

I have moved this to the ASP.NET topic area where I think you will have a better chance of getting a solution.

Theoretically, yes.  Though ASP.NET is really designed to post back.   When you post to another page you lose a lot of the power of the ASP.NET development model including the ability to easily refer to controls on the page as objects.

This is definitely a change from the classic ASP model, but you'll probably find development in ASP.NET easier if you follow the post back model.  If you need to move to another page on a submit, you can use Server.Transfer or Response.Redirect to move to the proper page.

If you use Server.Transfer you "redirect" the Request Collection to the new page and ends the execution of current page
The Response.Redirect works like in the pure ASP so it just redirect you nothing else

Check out:

Very cool method of providing an action attribute that posts to another site.

Good Luck,
Steve

While a classic ASP page has multiple forms model that allow you to POST HTTP method to another page, ASP.NET by default has only a single form model that post to itself. But ASP.NET provides a variety of ways to navigate between web forms with just a single form, follow this link for more info:
