Open new page after choosing drop down list selection

I have an asp.net vb page that has a form.  Within the form, is  a dropdown list that asks if a person has more information to include.  The drop downlist has the following options: "Yes" and "No".  I would like to launch a new webpage "moreinfo.aspx" if the answer "Yes" is selected.  I would like the page to be on top of the form page. Can someone help?

Hi .... Try this, it works fine for me...

aspx.....

<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server" OnSelectedIndexChanged="DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged" AutoPostBack="true">
            <asp:ListItem>Select</asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem>Yes</asp:ListItem>
            <asp:ListItem>No</asp:ListItem>
        </asp:DropDownList>

aspx.cs

protected void DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (DropDownList1.SelectedValue == "Yes")
        {
            String s = @"<script language='javascript' type='text/javascript'>";
            s += "window.open('http://www.google.co.in');";
            s += "</script>";
            Page.RegisterStartupScript("OpenWindow", s);
        }
    }

The way that I would do this is by using a ModalPopUp (instead of opening a new window)...
The form would have to be a part of the original page though...

sandip-mishra,

what language is your example written in?  This does not appear to be vb.  Can you rewrite in vb?

hi...

here is the VB coding....

Protected Sub DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
       If DropDownList1.SelectedValue = "Yes" Then
            Dim s As [String] = "<script language='javascript' type='text/javascript'>"
            s += "window.open('http://www.google.co.in');"
            s += "</script>"
            Page.RegisterStartupScript("OpenWindow", s)
        End If
   End Sub


I have converted the C# code to VB code. Hope it works for you too.

I'm getting an error with the vb code above.  The error is occuring on the line "Page.RegisterStartupScript("OpenWindow", s)",  any ideas of how to fix?

Warning      1      'Public Overridable Sub RegisterStartupScript(key As String, script As String)' is obsolete: 'The recommended alternative is ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Type type, string key, string script). http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202'.
