What is crosspage posting in ASP.NET and what is its use


In ASP.NET,when we click a button Web page post the page to itself.

But cross page posting is to post one page to another page.

This is used generally in a multi page forms where we put previous next

button and these buttons are used to post one form data to another form

so that last form can have the full data.

Cross page posting can be done in the following ways:

A.Using Button and Postback url

<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="" PostBackUrl="~/DestinationPage.aspx" />

B.Using server.Transfer

server.Transfer has following three overload.

1. Server.Transfer("site url");

2. Server.Transfer("site url",true);

3. Server.Transfer(CustomHandler,true);


To Check for CrossPagePostback check the following in the destination page

1.Page.PreviousPage is NOT NULL,

2.PreviousPage.IsCrossPagePostback is true

TextBox txtName = (TextBox)previousPage.FindControl("txtName");
