How do you refresh a page in codebehind

PageA has a repeater which displays some number of rows from a table. After the repeater on PageA I have a textbox and an "Add" button. I enter some text into  the textbox and click on the "Add" button. In the codebehind for the "Add" button I insert the data from the textbox into the table used by the repeater and then I open PageB which displays the detail information. At some point in the codebehind for the "Add" button I need to refresh PageA so that the new information I inserted into the table is displayed by the repeater and then go to PageB.

My code in the Add button is:


ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType, "popup", "window.open('CustomerDetailForm.aspx?Cust_Code=" + strCustCode + "','_blank','menubar=no')", True)

Whatever is first in the code above happens but not the second.

How do I refresh PageA and also get to PageB?

As soon as you do the response.redirect your code is done... nothing after that will happen because you are now "reloading" the page.

To get the repeater refreshed on pageA you probably want to rebind it to it's datasource instead of refreshing the page.

ex. repeater.databind()

I can't really comment much on the pageB issue. It seems like you are saying this is already working for you excepting that the redirect is currently stopping it from functioning. There are several ways you may or may be going about this and its just not feasible to comment on that at this time.

You would need to change the code from a registerstartupscript to registerclientscriptblock for it to function without the "reload".

So instead of:


Go with:

This is exactly what I needed. It is so simple I don't know why I did not think of it myself.

There is not a problem with pageB. I only included it so that the whole picture could be seen. Thanks.
