Javascript location.href not working

Here is my code created when a page loads the first time:

string jScript =

language='javaS cript'>
var pop = false;
var ans =
ans =
confirm('Are you sure you want to Cancel and lose any
if (ans)


parent.location .href = 'OrderMisc.aspx ';

if ( !IsStartupScrip tRegistered
("CancelPage ") )
RegisterStartup Script
("CancelPage ", jScript);

btnCancel.Attri butes.Add
("onclick","jav ascript: pop=true;Cancel Page();");
+++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++

Code is called correctly when the Cancel button is
pressed because I get the confirmation box, I click yes
and I get the alert box from the code, then the page
reloads without redirecting to 'OrderMaint.asp x'.

OrderMaint.aspx is spelled correctly and in the same
directory so I'm not sure why it's not taking me there.

Any ideas?

If button is asp.net server control or HTML submit button you need to
cancel it default behavior by cancel event bubbling and returning false
from your javascript function:

window.event.re turnValue = false;
window.event.ca ncelBubble = true;

Hey all, I'm trying to get a java bookmark to work from my browsers address field which is supposed to send a prefix + reload the current page from my proxy & return a special view depending on the prefix. "src=source, dbug=debug, bypass=ignore all filters" etc.... So what is wrong with these? I'm only listing two.
