Hi,

I am writing a class that has a sub procedure that checks to see a user's logged in authentication type.
Ie. if they are not an administrtator, then they are redirected back to the home page.
HOwever, i get an error message saying
"Response is not available in this context."

How can i get this to work?

Any clues?

Julia
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

Imports System
 
 
 

Public Class PageAccess

    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
 

    Public Sub access(ByVal intProgrammeID As Integer)

        If intProgrammeID = 7 Or intProgrammeID = 8 Then

            Try

                Me.Response.Redirect("admin/menu.aspx")

            Catch v_exception1 As System.Exception
 

                v_exception1.Message.ToString()

            End Try
 

          

        End If
 

    End Sub

End Class

I'm not sure why you would do this when you can do the same thing using authentication in the web.config page.  Then you just define which pages need authenticating and "*" for those that don't.  I'd have to google to find the specifics, but it seems you may be trying to reinvent the wheel.  Is it necessary in your case?

I use a colleagues web services for authentication.
In the web config file i have tried using <location> tags with <authorisation> deny etc

but it doesnt work.

I would think you'd need to put it in the Page Load event and check for Postback also.
It should work fine then.  From where are you calling it?
