I'm outputting a report to the current window like this.. works fine.
But the back button etc are disabled
How can Output to a new window or popup?

            Response.ContentType = "message/rfc822";
            Response.Expires = -1;
            Response.Buffer = false;
            Response.OutputStream.Write(result.DocumentBytes, 0, result.DocumentBytes.Length);

The server can't open a new browser window. You'll need to open a new window using JavaScript and set the URL of the new window to be the endpoint that executes the code that returns the report.

By doing what I told you to do in the original message I wrote, i.e.

set the URL of the new window to be the endpoint that executes the code that returns the report.
