ASP.NET C# code for Page direction dynamically based on database value

I am designing a web application on ASP.NET  with C# code.
I wish to redirect to respective homepages based on userids. The userlogin table has a field “pagedirection” to indicate the page for redirection. For example,
for “visitor” userid the pagedirection value is
"../visitor/visitorhomepage.aspx"
In the usual non-dynamic mode one uses the following code
Response.Redirect("../visitor/visitorhomepage.aspx");

The following code to redirect dynamically is not working.
Response.Redirect(dbreader["pagedirection"].ToString());

 Can anyone modify the code to get the results that I desire.

I would first see if the correct value is returned for pagedirection.
Add this and set a breakpoint and see:

string url  = dbreader["pagedirection"].ToString();
Response.Redirect(url); //set a breakpoint and see what is the url that you are getting?

most likely you will need to have your url in ~/ format.

The url is returning the expected value at breakpoint i.e.
"../visitor/visitorhomepage.aspx"
However at the end the following error message is displayed:

Server Error in '/websitesmnew' Application.
HTTP Error 400 - Bad Request.

And what do you see in the address bar for url when the error is thrown?

I am seeing the following in the address bar
http://localhost:49212/websitesmnew/smnew/%22../visitor/visitorhomepage.aspx%22

when I commented the dyanamic mode and activated nondynamic mode, it is directed to the correct desired page in which address bar is displaying

http://localhost:49212/websitesmnew/visitor/visitorhomepage.aspx

ok so you need to remove the " (double quotes) and .. from your url and add a ~ before doing a Redirect.

I would suggest you to store url without " and .. in your db e.g.
 /visitor/visitorhomepage.aspx

string url  = dbreader["pagedirection"].ToString();
Response.Redirect("~/" + url.TrimStart('/'));
