If you set a session variable before you redirect saying what View to load and check that in the Page_Load section if(!Page.IsPostBack) then that should work.

What do you mean by a VIEW?

You could add an argument to the .aspx page (e.g. pageA.aspx?showPart=2) and use the querystring to determine the VIEW you need to activate.


Commented: you know how to load the view in the Page Load method.

Currently I just use the command argument property of buttons to move from view to view...

if you are using a multiview containing views, then you should just do: MultiViewObject.SetActiveView = viewObj
