ASP » Response » Redirect

Syntax:
Response.Redirect(URL)
URL
The URL argument is the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) that the browser is redirected to.

The Redirect method tries to connect the browser to a different URL.

The Redirect method stops processing the current script and attempts to connect the client to a different URL. This is accomplished by adding an HTTP redirection header to the output stream that is being sent from the server to the client. Unfortunately, if page content has already been sent to the client and if a proxy server lies between the server and the client, an error message can be generated. Therefore it is advisable to set Response.Buffer to true and to call Response.Clear just before calling Redirect.

Note in ASP 2.0, the buffering default setting is false and in ASP 3.0, the buffering default setting is true.

There is one mandatory argument.

Examples

Code:
--------------File1.asp---------------
<% Response.Buffer = true %>
<HTML>
<BODY>
<%
Response.Write "This is File1.asp and switching to File2.asp"
Response.Clear
Response.Redirect "File2.asp"
%>
</BODY>
</HTML>

 
--------------File2.asp-----------------
<HTML>
<BODY>
<%
Response.Write "This is File2.asp"
%>
</BODY>
</HTML>
Output:
------------File1.asp------------------
This is File1.asp and switching to File2.asp
 
------------File2.asp-------------------
This is File2.asp
