Subject: [thelist] Redirect AFTER Page loaded with ASP

: I'm looking for cleaver ways to redirect a user AFTER stuff has been 
: to a page in ASP.
: Typically you can't by way of response.redirect("somepage.asp"). If you do
: this after you write stuff to the page, you get an error.


You can't because when you use Response.Redirect you are changing the HTTP 
Status to 302 Object Moved, which isn't possible if you're already written 

a) meta refresh tag
b) client side javascript

Do a check on the Microsoft site to see what changes have been made in XP 
SP2 - there are restrictions now on what you can redirect to. IIRC 
redirecting to anywhere on the same site still works.
