Response.Redirect in c# class.
I have one class library project created, there is one class BaseUIController in that, I want to write Navigate() method in the class would work as good as Response.Redirect("URL")
Function declaration is:
public void NavigatePage(string URL)


Please tell me how can I implement it, because System.Web.UI is not avaliabe in class library type projects, so I can'nt use Response.Redirect(URL).
Please guide me.

Thanks is advance,

Hi manish,

From a good design perspective, you should let the class library simply return a value that you use to determine where to redirect to in the presentation layer (the .aspx pages). By letting the class library redirect users, you tie it to a web application, which limits its reuse possibilities.

That said, you can add a reference to System.Web in your class library. Then you access objects like Response and Session in the class library like this:

System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Response.Redirect(" SomePage.aspx");

Note that this method will fail when it's accessed from outside a Web app (e.g. a Console app, Windows Forms etc)

Hi there,

Can you show us your exact code and explain where it is being called?

I have the same issue as Red_October. I have a button and the code behind for the button is
HttpContext.Current.Response.Redirect("URL", false);
when click on the button, system give this error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object"

can anyone help me with this issue?

If you have the same issue as Red_October, the same response to the question applies ;-)


Can you show us your exact code and explain where it is being called?

That is, explain the setup of your site / application, and show us the code for the page.

I have a SharePoint site http://moss2007
I have a page on this site call ViewMyStaff.aspx (this is just a blank webpart page). when the user clicks on the button, system should take me to http://moss2007/Pages/ViewMyStaff.aspx page. The form library is in the same site collection as this page

httpcontext.current.response.redirect("http://moss2007/pages/ViewMyStaff.aspx", false)

Thanks in advance,

You may be better off posting this in a SharePoint category, and provide more code that demonstrates the problem.

Hi Imar,

I have the same problem, in my case I am trying to do the redirect from a VB.Net module, here is the code:


Public Sub ShowEPSErrorPage(Optional ByVal strErrorMessage As String = gGenericErrorMessage,Optional ByVal strDetailedMessage As String = "")

            HttpContext.Current.Session.Add(ErrorPage.SA_ERR_MESSAGE, strErrorMessage)
            HttpContext.Current.Session.Add(ErrorPage.SA_DETAILS_MESSAGE, strDetailedMessage)
End Sub

I have System.Web imported and as I said this is in a module which is part of my web application.

When I debug this, sometimes the debugger will be able to evaluate HttpContext.Current and sometimes it would tell me "Unable to evaluate expression", but either way this throws an exception with a message "Unable to evaluate expression"!! the path is proper so I am not sure what am I missing or doing wrong?
