How do I use Target=_blank on a response.redirect?

I do not necessarily have to use response.redirect, but that is what I had. I would like to open the selected link in a new window. How do I do that?

context.Response.Redirect(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["URL"] + ext );

You can't is the short answer. The browser is the only thing that can open up a new window.

What you can do is send a chunk of html down the response that has a link with your url as an href, target="_blank" and a chunk of javascript onload of the form that fakes a click. If this doesn't work then use a window.open(url);

response.write("<script>");
response.write("window.open('page.html','_blank')");
response.write("</script>");
