ASP.NET C# issue

Hey guys, long time no see! I hope you are all doing well.

I have a puzzling problem with an ASP.NET C# homepage that I'm playing with. I hope that your suggestions can help me!

Basically, I just want to register clicks to external links on my website, and open up the URLs in a new window:
  1. A user clicks on a link to an external site
  2. Serverside code ensures that the click is registered in the database
  3. The browser opens up a new window (ie. _BLANK) with the URL of the link

Pretty simple, huh?

Now, the troublesome part is that in my aspx page I define the link as a LinkButton so I have the OnClick event to put my c# serverside code in, ie. could be something like:

Code:
<asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server" OnClick="LinkButton1_Click" CssClass="linkbutton_style">LinkButton</asp:LinkButton>
In the aspx.cs page I then have:

Code:
protected void LinkButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{

  //Do database stuff here

  Response.Redirect(HttpUtility.HtmlDecode(whatever-link));
}
The thing is, the Response.Redirect does not have the option to open up the link in a new window (ie. there is no way to do a _BLANK this way).

What to do?

What I really want is a control that lets me have an OnClick event AND give me the option of passing the user along to the other website in a new window. I've tried all sorts of standard controls.

I do NOT want to use javascript to open up a new window, since most browsers will come up with a notification of this nowadays - so this is not an option.

All suggestions are appreciated

Hi Allan!

Seems to be mention of this on this page, including using ResponseHelper.Redirect to specify a target:
Response.Redirect into a new window (with Extension Methods) - Infinities Loop

No idea if it works.

Thanks for the input, but by looking at the code it still appears to be a javascript solution, which isn't an option for me, I'm afraid.

Here's one for you. Bit off topic.

My friend is think of taking a holiday at the end of October, in Copenhagen.

His teenage son refuses to go anywhere hot

Is there much on for tourists at that time, in Copenhagen?

I hardly ever go to Copenhagen, but I'm sure there will be lots to do any time of year. I think you should have them check out:
