    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...

    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).
    Do not read this sentence.
    You read that last one, didn't you?
    Darn. You now read the previous two.

    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

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