Redirect from Page_Load Event

I am attempting to use the page load event to choose which aspx page a user finally receives.  I know roles based asp.net is desgned to handle this process but I think I can do it this way much easier.  

I have a field in the User table called Role.  There are two roles admin and user.  On Page_Load I want to take the Users Role information and use that to redirect the user to a particular aspx page.   Following is the present code in the page-load event.

How will I edit that code to allow the redirect?

Sub Page_Load(Source as Object, E as EventArgs)
if not Page.IsPostBack then

      Dim strConn as string = "server=(local);database=BCA;Trusted_Connection=yes"
      Dim sql as string = "SELECT UserName, FirstName, LastName, Phone, Extension, Email, Company FROM Users WHERE

(UserName = '" + Session("Username") +"')"
      Dim conn as New SQLConnection(strConn)
      Dim Cmd as New SQLCommand(sql, conn)
      Dim objDR as SQLDataReader
      conn.Open()
      objDR=Cmd.ExecuteReader(system.data.CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)
      While objDR.Read()
         intID=objDR("UserName")
         strFirst=objDR("Company")
         strLast=objDR("Email")
         NameFirst=objDR("FirstName")
           NameLast=objDR("LastName")
         strPhone=objDR("Phone")
         strExtension=objDR("Extension")
         strRole=objDR("Role")
         End While
      page.databind()
      conn.Close()

(What would the code look like and where would I put the code that says something like:
If strRole=Admin
redirect to Admin.aspx
else
load the code that follows)

 IncidentProduct.Items.Clear()
                     IncidentProduct.Items.Add(New ListItem(""))
                     IncidentProduct.Items.Add(New ListItem("Clinic Management System", "CMS"))
                     IncidentProduct.Items.Add(New ListItem("Electronic Medical Records", "EMR"))
                     IncidentProduct.Items.Add(New ListItem("Managed Care Managed Information System", "MCMIS"))
                     IncidentProduct.Items.Add(New ListItem("Resource Scheduling System", "RSS"))

IncidentStatus.Items.Clear()
                     IncidentStatus.Items.Add(New ListItem("Open"))
                     IncidentStatus.Items.Add(New ListItem("Completed"))

IncidentPriority.Items.Clear()
                 IncidentPriority.Items.Add(New ListItem(""))                    
                 IncidentPriority.Items.Add(New ListItem("Multiple Users Affected"))
                     IncidentPriority.Items.Add(New ListItem("Workaround Indentified, +1 Users Affected"))
                 IncidentPriority.Items.Add(New ListItem("Limited Functionality"))
                 IncidentPriority.Items.Add(New ListItem("Specific Immediate-Need Question"))
                 IncidentPriority.Items.Add(New ListItem("General How-To Question"))

End If
End Sub

How you validate the user role? If it depends on a Button_Click event then you can use the page redirect in the following way:

Sub_PagLoad(......)
If not Page.IsPostBack then
  'Check if the authentication cookie if you are creating one exist, if exist redirect user to the specific page
 
  'else show the login form
end if

End Sub

Sub Button_Click(....)
 'Validate User
 'If user exist, redirect to specific page
 'else
 'show the login form again

End Sub

Hope this will help, nauman

Put this after the while in your page load and it will auto redirect based on credentials

if not Page.IsPostBack And strRole=Admin then
Response.Redirect("Admin.aspx")
Else
redirect to wherever or build more user handling.

Modify your Page_Load as ...

Sub Page_Load(Source as Object, E as EventArgs)
if not Page.IsPostBack then

     Dim strConn........
     ...........................
     page.databind()
     conn.Close()
     
     if strRole=Admin then
         Server.Transfer("Admin.aspx")
         ' Response.Redirect("Admin.aspx")
         ' You can use either a Server.Transfer or Response.Redirect..
         ' Server.Transfer saves an extra round-trip to the server.
     else
     ' load the code that follows
     end if

     IncidentProduct.Items.Clear()........
     .............
End If
End Sub
