IE window.location not redirecting


I'm working on a page that uses javascript very much. My problem is now
that i cannot redirect to another page in IE with window.location =<URL>;
This command gets executed (proofed with alert messages) but nothing
happens. FF acts like expected but i cant get it work in IE. What can be
the problem here?

here the code i use:

this.NodeSelect ed = function( node ) {
if ( node.Value != null && node.Value != "" ) {
window.location = node.Value;

thanks & greetings,

Hm, if you sure about the value of node.Value, have you tried
window.location .href = node.Value;

yes i let it show up in an alert biox and it's right, it works perfectly
in FF - IE just ignors it

have you tried window.location .href = node.Value;

well here the things i've tried

window.location = node.Value;
window.location .href = node.Value;
location = node.Value;
location.href = node.Value;
document.locati on = node.Value;
document.locati on.href = node.Value;
parent.location = node.Value;
parent.location .href = node.Value;
top.location = node.Value;
top.location.hr ef = node.Value;

I've tried everything that came into my mind - and none of them, showed
any effect in IE. It just makes the location in the browser windo show
selected, but no URL change. Also when i do an alert(
window.location .href ); after asiging the new value i still get the old
url displaed - strange isn't it.

I ran out of ideas, the strange thing is that all documentation, forum
posts etc. tell me that this works, so i've no idea whats wrong.

thanks & greetings,

Well got it work by doing it that way:

SideBar_Redirec tUrl = node.Value;
setTimeout( "window.locatio n.href = SideBar_Redirec tUrl", 0 );

don'tknow why this works and the other versions don't - but it works.

I have a program which runs in a dos window. That program generates output and writes it to the dos window as well as piping it to a text file. I would like to be able to monitor the window or text file as the program runs with a dotnet application so that I can create my own log file in SQL server and perform certain actions depending upon the output in the window/text file. Does anyone have any suggestions?
