With iFrame you have to use javascript to redirect on the parent window.

self.parent.href='NEW URL';

and you can do this in your code behind by registring client script

Hi If you can convert to VB :)
Give a try if you couldn't I will try to give you VB code
Below is the code where you want to write Response.Redirect...
this.ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(), "Redirect", "self.parent.href='';", true);

Open in new window
