Hi Issiren,

this is not a bug at all.
The contents that are returned by the PartialUpdatePanel are rendered into the page by JavaScript.
So there is by design no way to use Response.Redirect, because this would produce a HTTP-header with code 302.
The headers are ignored if you use a asynchronous postback.

So the only way to redirect is again to use JavaScript.

Here is an excmple for you that you can use in the code behind of your UserControl.
This produces a JavaScript-Statement that causes the browser to redirect to a new page:



script = string.Format("document.location.href='{0}';", VirtualPathUtility.ToAbsolute("~/ThePageToRedirectTo.aspx"));



ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, GetType(), "redirect", script, true);


 I hope I could help you.

Best regards,
