Should we use Response.Redirect ( url, true) or Response.Redirect ( url, false) ?

Normally most of the time we use Response.Redirect (url). How is this different from Response.Redirect ( url, true) or Response.Redirect ( url, false) ? Also, what is the best form of Redirect to use when going to another page?

The second parameter of Response.Redirect is endResponse which is boolean value that indicates whether to stop running the current page.

It depends on if you want to keep it alive or stop it.

In what situation, would someone pass a true for the endResponse parameter ?

 I would think, we would like to always end execution of current page when redirecting to another page, and so 'true' is always what we want to pass.
