"Add" and "Add Another" LinkButtons with a PostBackURL and a Redirect

I have a page that allows a user to add a record.  It is a FormView and it has 3 LinkButtons at the bottom.  I would like the "Add" LinkButton to add the record and redirect to a list of records page.  I would like the "Add Another" LinkButton to add the record and stay on the same insert a record page so the user can add another record.  I would like the "Cancel" LinkButton to send the user back to the list of records page.

I have the "Cancel" working using a PostBackURL.

I have the "Add Another" working because it automatically posts back to the same page and is ready to insert again.

I am stuck on the "Add" and redirect.  I know how to use "Response.Redirect" to handle this in the ItemInserted event of the FormView but I cannot do that in this case because the "Add Another" would also cause the redirect.  

I expect it is possible to do this but I definitely have a conceptual problem with the issue because I cannot even think of anything else to try.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You'll probably have to add a "klunky" flag something like this:


    bool AddingAnother;  // true when Add Another button is clicked

    protected void ButtonAddAnother_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        AddingAnother = true;

    protected void FormView1_ItemInserted(object sender, FormViewInsertedEventArgs e)
        if (AddingAnother == true)
            // don't forget to reset the flag
            AddingAnother = false;

        // we are doing an Add

Thanks for the reply Steve.  I'm still not getting it. I see the concept but don't seem to be able to get it working. 

I've added code similar to your example in the codebehind.  I added an OnClick to the LinkButton and an OnItemInserted to the FormView.  The record is being added, but I am still returned to the Insert Template of the FormView.  I also thought maybe the Response.Redirect should be inside the "if" statement because it should only occur when that particular button is clicked.  It didn't work inside or out.

I've tried searching "bool" and "flag" for examples because I've never used anything like this before, but I cannot find an example using "bool" that seem relevant to my situation. 

If you could point me toward a tutorial/example, or maybe give me better search terms, I'll keep working on it.

"Add Web Reference" -vs- "Add Service Reference"
I've noticed that in VS 2008 I can add a reference to a web service through "Add Service Reference..." or "Add Web Reference".  It appears that either of these approaches works but there are some differences in the naming of the client-side proxy that's generated.. Does "Add Service Reference" take advantage of the 3.5 framework?  Does this approach gain any efficiencies if I'm still adding the reference for an asmx web service rather than a WCF service?  Or does "Add Service Reference" for an asmx web service just pr...

how to distinguish between "modify" and "add" operation
