In my master page I have a dropdown menu.  When the user changes the selected item in the dropdown menu I need it to change a Session variable then reload the page the user is currently at.  I'd like to do a simple Response.Redirect, but I'm not sure how to find the name of the page the user is at from the Master Page.  

Is there an easy way to do this?

Thanks

            return fi.Name;
