Call the previous page on the current page?

 Hi Friends,

I have a login page with a register button. There are other two pages(x and y) and on the other two pages there is a login button which direct the user to the login page. I need some code on the login page and the register button which will tell from which of the two pages(x and y) the login was called.


Thanks in Advance

 Can you please explain me this a bit? What it will do?

 on the page load of the login page

if you make this

string mycallingpage = HttpContext.Current.Request.UrlReferrer.ToString();


mycallingpage contains the page which called your login page

11/25/2008 3:38:50 PM

So, mycallingpage will capture the URL of the pages ?

11/25/2008 3:42:44 PM

 yes just test it and you will see


and make Reponse.write(myCallingpage); in the page load

 why not use this solution ?

 I am using this:

    Dim mycallingpage As String
        mycallingpage = HttpContext.Current.Request.UrlReferrer.ToString()
        If mycallingpage = TimssSettings.NamedPages("Home") & "?tabname=" & TimssSettings.NamedPages("Membership") Then
        Session("member") = True
        If mycallingpage = TimssSettings.NamedPages("Home") & "?tabname=" & TimssSettings.NamedPages("ShoppingCart") Then
            Session("shopping") = True
        End If

 but its not working. I want to create session if the user is coming from the 'Membership' or 'Shopping' page. No problem with the URLs.


Can you help me with it?

 HttpContext.Current.Request.UrlReferrer.ToString() will give you as string the full url of the calling page


so if you are on http://localhost/dd/hello.aspx and you click on a button which redirects to http://localhost/dd/login.aspx

HttpContext.Current.Request.UrlReferrer.ToString() in the pageload of the login.aspx will give you  http://localhost/dd/hello.aspx

that's all it does

 if you need to check parameter in the url, use Request("YourParameter") and test the value

maybe you could explain what is it that you want to do .... 

what is this  TimssSettings.NamedPages ?

How to include another .NET page in your current page ?
Hello, Very simple question how do you include another .NET page in another ? Like say a include=test.aspx or something. I don't think it is possible and if it is, please someone show me some example code. What you can do is create user controls (*.ascx) and dynamically include them.
