MenuItemClick in Menu Contrrol

In ASP.NET 2.0 I have a menucontrol in a Master page.
on Pressing a choice in the menu  I put in MenuItemClick a code that set the NavigateUrl .

 Menu1_MenuItemClick(object sender, MenuEventArgs e)
e.Item.NavigateUrl = ..........

My problem is that I have to press the menuitem TWICE!!!!! in order to get the new choice. When I press the first time it goes to the MenuItemClick and set the new NavigateUrl but it does not switch to the new menuitem. Only
After I press the second time it moves to the new choice. Why is that?
(The problem is not because of the Master Page. It happens also if it is a regular page.)

Try rebinding the MenuControl

Do you mean to make the DataBind in the end of MenuItemClick?
I did it and it doesn't help.
Have another idea?
I think the problem is that this event is fired after the form load but what can I do about it?
Is it not working fine, only that the logic is wrong?
First you set the navigate URL, then when you press it next time it, go go to that location.
Eiter you need to set the NavigateURL BEFORE pressing the link, or you can just Response.Redirect(..) insted of seting the NavigateURL

Hi rundkass,
can you please tell how to set the navigateurl before pressing link. i am little confused.
Thanks and appreciate it
Well the navigate url could be set when the link is created ( e.g. when it is databound) or you add a event handler to it, and then set it to redirect to another page.
