I have a application project that has all .cs files. My main project References to the application. In one of my .cs file I have a method that I want to redirect to another page every time it's called. I did Response.Redirect(""); but it says The type or namespace name 'Response' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)
Any clue on where to go from here?

If you can't use Response.redirect in a .cs file is there something like Response.redirect that you can use.

You can use Response.Redirect in a .cs file, you just need to use what I showed above.

I tried that and I still got The type or namespace name 'HttpContext' does not exist in the class or namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?)


Is there something else I might have missed?

Do you have a reference to System.Web.dll in the project?
