I am using a LinkButton and want to navigate to another page that opens with blank target (target="_blank")

I have used response.redirect(URL) to navigate to the page but the LinkButton wont accept target="_blank" property.

I am using a linkbutton because I need other code to respond to the click event.

If there is an easier way to navigate to a page, respond to the click event and have the page you navigate to open up in a target="_blank" setup then I'll be delighted to hear about it.

Thanks in advance

Button1.Attributes.Add("Onclick", "Javascript:window.open('http://someserver/somecgi.exe?params=whatever','new','resizable=yes')")

For customized window using Javascript, try this link: http://javascript.about.com/library/weekly/aa031203a.htm
In ASP.Net you can use Javascript this way:
Inside the Button_Clicked event,

    Dim MyJavaScript As String
    MyJavaScript = "<script>window.open('pageURL.aspx')</script>"
    Page.RegisterStartupScript(MyScript, MyJavaScript)

Essentially what everyone is trying to say is LinkButtons ALWAYS postback to the server, that is what they are meant to do.  If you don't need to postback before you redirect, then I would just use a regular hyperlink.
