blinking after redirecting to another page

Dear developers,

I have one question. With redirecting to another page (by clicking a button or text on the site) you see first

a white blink before the new page is loaded.

Does someone know why this is and how I can solve this that I don't see it anymore by redirecting?

 

In advance, thank you very much.

Re: blinking after redirecting to another page

What code are you using for the redirect? Does it happen in all browsers?

Thank you for your response.


Method I'm using: SiteUtils.RedirectToUrl(url). It's happen in IE 9.

Re: blinking after redirecting to another page

Hi Frits,

That method does a soft redirect which means code after the redirect may still be executed, you should always follow a call to that method with return; to prevent any other code below it from executing, or else use Response.Redirect(url,true); which does a hard redirect.

Also only use redirects when you really need them, ie don't use buttons that only do navigation by redirecting, it ok to redirect after completing some processing in a button click event but if all the button does is redirect it is better to replace it with an ordinary link and avoid the redirect.

If the problem only happens in IE then you may be able to solve it by using page transitions in the <head> of layopiut.master like this:

<!--[if IE]>
<meta http-equiv="Page-Enter" content="blendTrans(Duration=0)" />
<meta http-equiv="Page-Exit" content="blendTrans(Duration=0)" />
<![endif]-->

Hope that helps,

Joe
