#1: Opening a new window when button clicked

Posted on 2008-04-24 20:38:54 by Jim in Arizona

When placing a link using html, it's easy to have a new window opened for
the link instead of redirecting the current page to the destination. IE:

<a href="../folder5/anotherpage.aspx" target=_blank>Another Page</a>

I've placed a button on the page that I would like to have do the same
thing:

<asp:button id="btnAnotherPageLink" runat="Server" text="Another Page" />

Protected Sub btnAnotherPageLink_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles btnActiveDialup.Click
Response.Redirect("../folder5/anotherpage.aspx")
End Sub

This will cause the current page to navigate to the destination page. How
can I have a new window open up and load the destination page instead?

TIA,
Jim

buttons do a form submit. you set the target on the form to control this.
asp.net forms do not allow the target to be set, so yo must use a non-server
form, or use javascript to set the target.
