Hi all am trying to open a new web form using Response.Redirect because I'm passing variables to the new page.  All works fine accept I can not get the new page to open in it's own tab or popup.  Also I can't get it to close or navigate back after saving data in a button.  The below code is what I'm working with.

Response.Redirect("frmSERVER_DETAILS.aspx?" &
                          "_SERVER_NEW=" & _SERVER_NEW &
                          "&_SERVER_NAME=" & _SERVER_NAME &
                          "&_SERVER_ITEM_KEY=" & _SERVER_ITEM_KEY)

Open in new window

I'm pretty sure you're not going to get what you want.  'redirect' only works in the current window and it breaks the history path.  If you want a new window, you need to use an <a href... with target="_blank">.

Redirect works that way in all programming languages.  It is actually an HTTP method that is the same in all languages and browsers.

If I can't do it this way; how can I at least navigate back or close the form?

Ok, what I did is jus do a redirect back to the original page.
