Performing an actual form post from Asp.net code behind

Hello, I am in the process of making some asp.net/php integrations and I need to be able to load an asp.net page, and as soon as that page opens do an actual form post of two custom values to a php page.  The php page then reads to values and loads them to the database.

My issue is that I am having trouble trying to figure out how to do an actual form post where the page redirects to the php page (just as if I were doing a form post with a submit button).  I do know how to form post from asp.net code behind, but when I do that the page does not redirect.  How can I do a real form post as soon as the asp.net page loads to the php page?

I don't think you can because the post from the 'code behind' does not involve the browser at all.  The best you could do is to perform the post and redirect the browser when you get a response.  That is often done with PHP only code.

Wow so there is no way to just automate a true form post in .net?

I think you're confusing things.  If you were to do the form post from the web page in the browser, the browser would go to that page.  But when you do it in the code behind on the server, it does not involve the browser.  In fact the browser knows nothing about it so there is nothing to take it to that next page.  

And it's not just .NET.  The same thing is true in all the other server side languages.  The browser doesn't know about anything you do on the server unless the info is sent to the browser.

I think a bit of Client / Server theory may be helpful to you as you seek to frame the problem.
