i have a

ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType(), "AlertBox", "alert('Your request is completed.');", True)
resposne.redirect("")


i want the user to click ok in this box then redirect. but my page right now doesn't even stop for this to happen and just go straight to the redirect page. so how do i stop the page so that it allows users to click ok before it goes to redirect.

In VB.net the way to do it is

If MsgBox("message", MsgBoxStyle.OKOnly, "Title") = MsgBoxResult.OK Then
     resposne.redirect("")
End If

Open in new window

you can do it with javascript:

 ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType(), "AlertBox", "alert('Your request is completed.');document.location='NewPage.aspx';", True)

Open in new window

the msgbox will work when you debugging it in vs studio but won't work when you host the site on your server.
