ASP.NET find out which page redirected to current page

Posted on 2009-04-02
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Hello experts,
in my app I redirect from some pages to others. How do I find out from which page my current page was called?
I though it should be the sender of the page_load method. But there I always get the current page as the sender.

Can someone help me?
