How can I use the RowDataBound declaration on a GridView to navigate away to new .aspx page with Specific window size

i use a following code in rowdatabound event

if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
{
e.Row.Attributes["onClick"] = string.Format("window.location = 'CandidateProfile.aspx?candidateID={0}';", DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "candidateID"))

}

i want to change it so the click event opens in a new window with specified height and width

something like:

var url = string.Format('CandidateProfile.aspx?candidateID={0}';", DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "candidateID"));

ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "openWindow",
 "<script>openWindow('url')</script>");

function openWindow(url, redirectUrl) {
    var x = window.open(url, 'mynewwin', '_blank', 'toolbar=0,scrollbars=1,location=0,statusbar=0,menubar=0,resizable=1,width=600,height=520,modal=yes,alwaysRaised=yes');
    x.focus();
    window.location = redirectUrl;
}

Open in new window


or calling Response.Redirect:

Response.Redirect(string.Format("CandidateProfile.aspx?candidateID={0}';", DataBinder.Eval(e.Row.DataItem, "candidateID")", "_blank", "menubar=0,scrollbars=1,width=780,height=900,top=10");

Open in new window



change the width/height according to your needs.

is this the server side code ?

do i write the frist code in e.Row.Attributes["onClick"] = .. ?

In your aspx add script tag and code the function inside.
So upon row click, the function is being called passing the url with relevant data.
I wasnt infront of a pc but this is the idea.
U can try response.redirect but im not its gonna work, i havent tested it yet
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
