I have the following code behind that I need to re-direct back to the previous page after update is submitted.     The code should have re-direct behavior similar to  a the button function "history.go(-1)".


protected void DetailsView2_ItemUpdated(object sender, DetailsViewUpdatedEventArgs e)
    {
        Response.Redirect("~/      ");

You can't achieve that server-side without telling it what the previous page was.  Requests to the server are stateless so it doesn't get told anything about historical page views (unless your form submits to a different page, in which case you can get the previous page from the HttpReferer).

You're pretty much much with hard-coding the name of the page to redirect to; which isn't generally an issue unless you have multiple pages that all share your edit page.
