I don't think I understand your question .

The workflow (as defined by the SharePoint Desinger or Visual Studio ) does not use http post or get or redirect commands.

can you let me know what are you trying to do and put some screen shots , that would help.

Best of luck.

SP workflows are executing out of web context. if you need to redirecr user based on value entered in NewForm or EditForm, you have to customize corresponded form to have your own OnSubmit handler; it should update an item and then perform redirect

wow tzarad, could you please write a code sample redirecting user browser in Event Receiver? It will be really appreciated, in my 6 year dev experience in SP I've never seen such approach. I believe that you didn't get the question right.

May be I didn't understand it :) But an option seems to be cancelling the event and redirect to a custom page link
One thing is sure, you will not be redirected by a workflow action, so you have to modify the code behind your New or Edit Item form using Sharepoint Designer if you don't want to use the redirect option in the cancelevent.

make sense, thanks for the link tzarad. but drawback here is that item will not be updated if we use CancelWithRedirect. Not sure if this is acceptable but it is an option.
