Server Transfer doesn't Set Focus to Page

This has been driving me crazy. server.transfer doesn't set the focus
to the page I transfer to so when the user does a refresh, the results
aren't what's expected.

I have a datagrid on one page that lists the student's guests. At the
bottom of the datagrid is an 'add a new guest' button. Users click on
this button an it takes them to a new page where they can add a new
guest. So they type in the guest information and click on the 'save'
button. server.transfer takes them back to the datagrid page where
their guest is listed.

Simple enough, right? The problem is, after you save a guest and return
to the datagrid page, when the user refreshes, it adds the same guest to
the datagrid, creating a duplicate guest entry. It took me a long time
to figure out what is happening. The focus is still on the 'add a
guest' page so when you refresh, it's just like clicking on the 'save'
button.

How do I set the focus to the datagrid page after I save a guest? I
need to use server transfer.

It is setting focus, but a refresh forces the same action when you have the
form linked via Server.Transfer (). I would consider going to
Response.Redire ct instead as a refresh will only refresh the page rather than
rerun the form submit.

The action you are speaking of is normal, as the browser is asking for a
refresh on the entire process, as it does not realize it has been transfered
on the server side.

Hi, I'd like to know the performance related differences between Response.Redirect and Server.Transfer. I'd like to redirect the user to a different page. I can either do a Response.Redirect("URL") or a Server.Transfer("URL"). So I'd like to find out which is more efficient/better. Can anyone please tell me or give any pointers to links on the web? Thanks & Regards

Hello, We have two applications that will reside on the same webserver. We want to be able to post from pages in App1 to to pages in App2. We need to pass sensible data, so we cannot use querystring. We are using server.transfer (needing to reference App2 in App1).

Hi, I'm aware of the different ways to pass variables between ASP.Net pages. For pages that need to pass a variable, we're using the server.transfer method. For others, we're using repsonse.redirect.

Hello I'm trying to use a Server.Transfer in a try-catch (I cannot put it outside the Try-Catch as it is nested deep within a component that is called in a try-catch loop) The problem is that the Server.Transfer always throws the ThreadAbortException.

I have Page1 that does a transfer to page2. When the user is done with Page2, there is a button on Page2 that they can press to bring them back to Page1. I use Server.Transfer to navigate from one page to the next. The confusion that I am having is that when the user is done with Page2 and clicks on the button to bring them back to Page1, I want Page1 to basically come back with the exact same view that it had before the user navigated...

I've developed a small ASPX template framework (based on Chun Li's article on CodeProject: http://www.codeproject.com/aspnet/headerfooter.asp#xx849313xx) which uses a IHttpModule to apply usercontrols (e.g. header and footer) on pages. The module determines if templates should be added to the page using Page.Request.Path. It matches the current adress to settings found in a configuration-file... It works like a charm except for one...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
