I've got a situation where I'm trying to post some data to a new page with a response.redirect.  I don't need to post the form that has the viewstate and all that, I just need to be able to specify a request redirect as a post and add custom data to it.  I've already got something like this running with javascript, as seen below, but in this case I would rather avoid using this method as the way I would need to implement it would be to register a script to the page to call the javascript method.  It seems like it would be a much better solution if I c could simply post to the new url without having to reload the original page.
function postURL(url) {

        var form = document.createElement('form');
        form.setAttribute('method', 'post');
        form.setAttribute('action', url);

        var hiddenfield = document.createElement('input');
        hiddenfield.setAttribute('type', 'hidden');
        hiddenfield.setAttribute('name', 'history');
        hiddenfield.setAttribute('value', $('#<%= txtHistorySerialized.ClientID %>').val());

        form.appendChild(hiddenfield);
        document.body.appendChild(form);
        form.submit();
    }

I think it's better you continue using your current method. It will perhaps be easier. You cannot POST in the way that you want. See here: http://www.west-wind.com/presentations/dotnetwebrequest/dotnetwebrequest.htm. You could alternatively use querystring: Response.Redirect("thePage.aspx?value=" & txtHistorySerialized.Text)

However, considering what you have there... where u are submitting to the same page.... neither of these new methods is best. Rather stick to what you doing if it's working.

The problem with using the javascript method in this case is because it needs to be executed on the onclick event from a button on the page after some stuff has run on the server for that page.  So what ends up happening is that I do a postback on the button click and on the server I do a register script which runs the javascript method when the page reloads and forwards the user to the needed destination.  This is no good as it the user can see the page reload before they get forwarded.

Server.Transfer is not working as I would have hoped either.  It doesn't seem to be hanging on to the data that was posted previously.
