	String url,

public function Redirect (
	url : String, 
	endResponse : boolean



The target location.


Indicates whether execution of the current page should terminate.

Exception typeCondition


A redirection is attempted after the HTTP headers have been sent.

An absolute URL (for example, or a relative URL (for example, default.aspx) can be specified for the target location but some browsers may reject a relative URL.

Redirect calls End which raises a ThreadAbortException exception upon completion.

The following code example uses the IsClientConnected property to check whether the client requesting the page remains connected to the server. If IsClientConnected is true, the code calls the Redirect method, and the client will view another page. If IsClientConnected is false, the code calls the End method and all page processing is terminated.

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>
<script runat="server">

    private void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        // Check whether the browser remains
        // connected to the server.
        if (Response.IsClientConnected)
            // If still connected, redirect
            // to another page. 
            Response.Redirect("Page2CS.aspx", false);
            // If the browser is not connected
            // stop all response processing.
