Hi

I am calling the following code as per the article at this link
    'http://www.codeproject.com/Tips/317410/Response-Redirect-into-a-new-window
using
ResponseHelper.Redirect("Altron_PopUp.aspx", "_blank", "menubar=0,width=100,height=100")

but I get a message saying Pop Up Blocker and have to hold the Ctrl button down
How do avoid the user having to hold the Ctrl button down?

Public Class ResponseHelper

    Private Sub New()
    End Sub

    Public Shared Sub Redirect(url As String, target As String, windowFeatures As String)
        Dim context As HttpContext = HttpContext.Current

        If ([String].IsNullOrEmpty(target) OrElse target.Equals("_self", StringComparison.OrdinalIgnoreCase)) AndAlso [String].IsNullOrEmpty(windowFeatures) Then

            context.Response.Redirect(url)
        Else
            Dim page As Page = DirectCast(context.Handler, Page)
            If page Is Nothing Then
                Throw New InvalidOperationException("Cannot redirect to new window outside Page context.")
            End If
            url = page.ResolveClientUrl(url)

            Dim script As String
            If Not [String].IsNullOrEmpty(windowFeatures) Then
                script = "window.open(""{0}"", ""{1}"", ""{2}"");"
            Else
                script = "window.open(""{0}"", ""{1}"");"
            End If

            script = [String].Format(script, url, target, windowFeatures)
            ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(page, GetType(Page), "Redirect", script, True)
        End If
    End Sub

End Class

That is client setting and you would not be able to change it (for good reason).

Got you! Makes sense. No one wants to be plagued by pop-ups. Went for an approach with panels, i.e. showing/hiding them instead of a pop-up

Thanks
