response.redirect redirecting too fast, why?

Hello,

I have an ASP.NET 1.1 C# web based wizard.  Once users click the button to go from step 2 to step 3, the code behind the scenes on step3.aspx will automatically create a popup download box.  The problem, however, is that the page never refreshes for step 3.

I do this:

step2.aspx:
    Response.Redirect("step3.aspx");

step3.aspx
     Output File To Download();


but, step3.aspx is never rendered in the browser.  all that happens when you click the button on step2, is that the Output File To Download gets called and step3.aspx is never rendered.  Does anyone know how to make it so that step3.aspx will be rendered, and THEN the file is downloaded?

Thanks

Try adding a Response.Flush() just before your file download code to flush the output buffer to the client.

actually, you were almost right.  Putting Response.Flush() AFTER the line that actually makes the user download a file is what made it work.

thanks
