Hi folks,

   I am used to using response.redirect to motor to a new page and writing on the server-side.With client-sdie coding,I can not do this.And I understand why.
  My problem is I have a page which is written on the client-side and need to use another method to redirect since response object is not recoginized on the client side.
I have tried this (which doesn't work :((   )

      window.navigate("FutureRpt.asp")

If I use window.open("FutureRpt.asp"), it works, but opens it as pop-up window instead of a new window. I am using client-side vbscript.
What on earth am I doing wrong?? :-(
Any help would be appreciated....

try,

location.href = "FutureRpt.asp"
or
window.location.href = "FutureRpt.asp"

Return keywords used within event handlers return a true or false value (boolean value) to the browser, they are generally used to interupt a natural browser behavior. In this example, the return false statement is interupting the browser's natural behavior of opening the URL contained in the href attribute's quotes. There is no convention as to when to use true or false - the various behaviors respond to true and false differently.
