I'm getting a message "Object moved here." when I try to use a drop-down at the top of my page to change the page's view settings. "here" is a link to the same page the drop-down posts to. This only happens on the pages where the view state isn't relevant - when there's actually something to view, it doesn't cause a problem.

The DHTML is pretty straight-forward. It occurs in a header.ascx control and looks like this:

<form name="frmView" method="POST" action="updateView.aspx">
Select a view type:
<select id="viewChanger" name="selViewType" onchange="this.form.submit();">
<option value="quick">Quick View</option>
<option value="detail">Detailed View</option>
<option value="full">Full view</option></select></form>

The page the new view state is submitted to looks like this:

<%@ Page Language="vb" %>
<script runat="server">
Sub Page_Load(obj as Object, E as EventArgs)
dim newView as string = request.form("selViewType")
dim from as string = request.urlReferrer.pathAndQuery().substring(17)
session("viewType") = newView
end sub

Also, in a footer.ascx control, a line of JavaScript sets the drop-down so that the current state is selected.

I looked for other threads on this topic, but can't see how to apply the information within them to this situation. Any help?

Not sure if this applies in asp.net, but I've seen this is classic asp. Solution was to do:


rather than just a redirect. HTH
