How to open a new window in ASP.NET/C# code behind without full page postback

I am able to dynamically write JavaScript routines in my ASP.NET/C# code behind page in order to open a new window. However, I notice that this is only done when there is a full page postback. When I try to perform the following code segments in a method like FormView1_ItemInserted(), and the FormView is within an AJAX Panel, then the JavaScript is not executed, it seems.

ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(), "anything2", strScript.ToString());

ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Page, this.GetType(), "Open Window", strScript.ToString(), true);

The strScript contains the JavaScript code surrounded by the <script> tags.

While I am specifically wanting to open a new window dynamically, I am wanting to be able to execute any JavaScript code (e.g. an alert) to do something after I insert a record into a formview, surrounded by an AJAX Panel Update. Just prior to executing the new window, I am dynamically creating 3 html files and the 3rd file will be the one that I am opening in the new window (which will link to the other 2 html files).

This is the correct way to do this:
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, this.GetType(), "Open Window", strScript.ToString(), true);

if strScript already has the <script> tags, set the last parameter to false.

If you wanted to do it clientside, you could either add an attribute for onclientclick passing the script or just add the onclientclick attribute directly to your aspx page.

Not sure exactly what your question is though.

Since strScript has the <script> tags, I needed to change the last parm to "false", and now it works!

ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, this.GetType(), "Open Window", strScript.ToString(), false);

Evidently, I was wrong it thinking that the JavaScript routine would not work in an AJAX Panel Update, based on my experiments. Thanks for the correction to the last parm.
