Try Catch question

I'm looking at this code:
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        //Session["LoggedOut"] = true;  removed trs 09/26/2011
        //Session["IsLoggedIn"] = false;  removed trs 09/26/2011
        log4net.ThreadContext.Properties["Action"] = "Logout";
        log.Info("User Logged Out");
        Response.Cookies[FormsAuthentication.FormsCookieName].Expires = DateTime.Now.AddYears(-1);
        FormsAuthentication.SignOut();
        Session.Abandon();
        //Session.Clear();// hold trs 09/26/2011'
        Response.Redirect("~/weblogin.aspx");
        //FormsAuthentication.RedirectToLoginPage();
    }
}
 Would I need a try/catch for the response.redirect to sink the theardAbortException when it calls the response.end?  What would that look like.

Hello TimSweet220

No, you would not need a Try/Catch block in order for this.Response.Redirect to work. Response.Redirect works in 2 different ways:

this.Response.Redirect("~/MyPage.aspx");

and

this.Response.Redirect("~/MyPage.aspx", true);

The above examples do not perform an actual redirect themselves. They return a HTTP code which tells the browser to redirect to the respective page, similar to if you typed it into the address yourself.

The difference with the 2nd example is it stops the response (and the thread eventually) there and then. The first example lets the response continue as normal.

With either example no Try/Catch block is needed.

Thanks,
