Need to pass information into a web page.

P: n/a
What I am trying to do is as follows.
I have a page with 3 links,that direct the user to 3 different pages when selected after login.
So all link selections will first direct the user to a login page. Once the user logs in then they are directed to the appropriate link.
So for all 3 links they all go to a login page, but each link must pass information to the login in page, specifically the page to go to after login takes place.

I suggest that you look into Forms Authentication. See Forms Authentication

Hi Kevin, thanks for the response.
so in the login file what do I pass into the redirect statement as I normally
use it as shown below, with the redirect hardcoded in.
Response.Redirect("denied.htm")

Dont' reinvent the wheel. Use the built-in Forms Authentication which
already provides this kind of functionality. Here's more info:

Hi Kevin, thanks for the additional information. For some reason I am getting nothing for the QueryString from the debugger. I modified the hyperlink created by
..NET,NavigateUrl.
<asp:HyperLink id="HyperLink15" style="Z-INDEX: 119; LEFT: 536px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 48px"runat="server" NavigateUrl="login.aspx? Redirect=view_code.aspx" Target="_new" Font Size="Smaller">Code</asp:HyperLink>
When I run the app and select the hyperlink it goes to login.aspx with
this showing on the browser-http://localhost/newdm1/login.aspx?%20Redirect=view_code.aspx
But in login.aspx I am getting empty for the temstr below.
Dim temstr As String = Request.QueryString("Redirect")
Also
Response.Redirect(Request.QueryString("Redirect"))
creates a runtime error-empty URL
Thanks.

Ok, kind of new to .NET so not aware of all of its capability. I just got through writing a routine that does loops through rows of a database, does a string compare to match names, then retrieves a password and attempts a compare on that. I am guessing that .NET has built in functions to do this.
thanks

The Request object requires two trips to the server and can and will
affect performance.

Generally speaking, since ASP 3.0 and most especially with ASP.NET
the *only* reason to use the Request object to 'redirect' is when you
are redirecting to pages on another server or redirecting to pages that
are *not* .aspx files on the same server from which your code does the
redirection (or .asp files on the same server when using ASP 3.0).

You should be properly informed and as I am taking the responsibility
to do so I am telling you to learn to use the Transfer method when
your business process requires redirection. You also want to learn
the Execute method so you can learn how to return data to the calling
page when redirecting.

Start with MSDN documentation and refine your understanding with
Google searches such as those that follow. For the most part it can be
said that while it is still supported for reasons noted, the Request object
is obsolete.

Google: "transfer method"+"asp.net"
Google: 'execute method"+"asp.net"
