Hi Experts,

I call a subroutine in a class to set some session variables, the following code is within a try, however, an exception is raised (Response is not available in this context.) when I try to redirect to this page Response.Redirect("CreateNewProject.aspx"), why is this and what am I doing wrong?

Try
            'create new dataset to read the xml in the customer config table into.
            Dim dsxml As New DataSet
            dsxml.ReadXml(Session.Item("customerConfigFilePath"))
            Dim userNameStr As String = "UserName = '" & userName & "'"

            'search for the user row based on thier username
            Dim dataRows As DataRow() = dsxml.Tables(0).Select(userNameStr)

            If dataRows(0).Item("NumberOfLogins") = 1 Then
                Response.Redirect("CreateNewProject.aspx")
            Else
                'set session variables
            Endif

 Catch ex As Exception
            l.writeToLogFile(Session.Item("customerLogFile"), "[Error #0031] Could not setup the session variables " & ex.Message.ToString)
        End Try

If you need access to the Response object outside the Page, use this:
HttpContext.Current.Response

I'm not sure I understand, could you re-write the code example I included with your idea to show me how to do it?

The section of code to be modified:

            If dataRows(0).Item("NumberOfLogins") = 1 Then
                ''Use HttpContext.Current.Response here:
                HttpContext.Current.Response.Redirect("CreateNewProject.aspx")
            Else
                'set session variables
            Endif

Eric,

I made that change and now I get the following exception, any ideas?

System.Threading.ThreadAbortException = {Property evaluation failed.}

It appears that we need to set the second parameter of Redirect to False.
Give this a try:

            If dataRows(0).Item("NumberOfLogins") = 1 Then
                ''Use HttpContext.Current.Response here:
                HttpContext.Current.Response.Redirect("CreateNewProject.aspx", False)
            Else
                'set session variables
            Endif

Eric,

The line HttpContext.Current.Response.Redirect("CreateNewProject.aspx", False) does not throw an exception this time but neither does it redirect to the CreateNewProject.aspx page.

Any ideas?

Not sure why, I was able to redirect using the following.
The class code follows.  Notice I have 2 ways to redirect, Redirect1 uses the Page.Response.Redirect() and Redirect2 uses HttpContext.Current.Response.Redirect().  Both seem to work for me in my sample application.

Utilities.Redirect1(Me.Page)

and

Utilities.Redirect2()


Public Class Utilities

	Public Shared Sub Redirect1(ByVal page As Page)

		page.Response.Redirect("webform1.aspx", False)

	End Sub

	Public Shared Sub Redirect2()

		HttpContext.Current.Response.Redirect("webform1.aspx", False)

	End Sub

End Class

Open in new window
