Posting variables to a new window on Ajax site (asp.NET - VB)

Hi there

Passing variables to a new window was quite easy before Ajax, just write a window.open script and include it under the button click event with the variables being including in the url and pulled out at the other end as request.querystring - the only way I can open a new window now is to include this as a javascript function at page_load time and the the button to call the function using Attributes.Add

Soooo the question is, what method can I use now to get the variables to the new window? I've tried Session, but since the function to open the window is pre-defined that won't work as the new Session loads far too late..

Pointers in the right direction would be very much appreciated...

You should still be able to pass the variables. Show your code.

Hi Acoder

I found the issue - replace ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript with ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript - it's formatted in a different way, but once I got my head round that learning curve opening a new window and passing variables on partial postback works...

Thank you for leaving your reply...
