Pass Datagrid Value to New Window

I currently have a datagrid with a button column "select" command on webform1.  When this link is clicked I invoke the Item Command event for the datagrid which sets a Session Variable equal to the ID # of the selected row. I navigate to a new page (webform2) using response.redirect and webform2 is populated with information specific to the Session ID number.  However, I need webfrom2 to open in a new browser window.  I know I cans set the base target of webform1 to _blank and I get a new window but it seems to lose my session variable and everything breaks.

Essentially, how do I pass a Session variable to a page that opens in a new Browser window?

Thanks for helping :)

You can pass the ID# as Query String to the new window

You can now write

Response.Write("<script>window.open('SlideView.aspx?ID='" & TheID,'');</script>")

Now the SlideView.aspx page will access the ID and display according to the ID
