    How do you load a webpage using Javascript????

    I'm so tired of trying to find out how to load an aspx page from an existing aspx page using Javascript. I can't seem to get a straight answer. Can someone please show me a working example?

    Thanks,
    Blake

    Window.open is the JS function to direct the current page to a new page

    http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_win_open.asp

    But this terminology you used is confusing...

    "to load an aspx page from an existing aspx page "

    Load - what does that verb mean?

    Perhaps that's my lack of knowledge of web development. I have a masterpage called Site1.master. My starting page is called Menu1.aspx. I'm trying to call Main3.aspx from within the Menu1.aspx page from a Javascript function. I want the page to be displayed in the current session and not a new Window.

    Then window.open will direct the current page to a new url.

    Once your ASPX page renders you are in the browser - it's stateless - it knows not where it came from. So you have to direct the BROWSER to go someplace - the original aspx page is a fleeting memory...

    window.open opens a new window.
    Set window.location to navigate within the current page.

    Do you mean:
    1) you want to embed Main3.aspx in Main1.aspx,
    2) you want the user to be redirected to Main3.aspx,
    or 3) you want to use JavaScript in Main1.aspx to call a function that is found in Main3.aspx?


    I'm assuming either 1) or 2).

    Well, I'm assuming #3, but I'm not positive if that's the way to do it. Keep in mind, I'm using a MasterPage. Main1.aspx is the startup page. This page consists of a menu and an image. When a menu item is clicked on, that's when I wish to load/show Main3.aspx. The Main3.aspx page is controlled mostly using Javascript functions. When calling the Main3.aspx page, I need to pass a parameter which is the menu item that was clicked on.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks,
    Blake
