search application

P: n/a
Hi All,

a while ago I had to write a asp.net search application. The start
page is a html page, which calls a aspx file that shows the search
results, using a datagrid. So far no problem.
But: now they want an "advanced search". This new search has to be
a aspx page (it contains dropdownlists that are filled from a
database). I can make this advanced search, but how do I call the
the original search.aspx from there?

The html file calls the aspx by using a Get request which is
triggered by a submit button.

html file --------------------------> advanced-search.aspx
! hyperlink-click !
! !
! submit - get /
! / How ?
! /
search.aspx <----------------------------/

I suspect I have to use Response.Redirect, but how do I pass the
values entered in the advanced-search to the search.aspx?
Or do I have to use a completely different approach?

Any help or suggestions for alternative approaches would be highly
appreciated. Thanks.
