Depends on what you wish to do...

You will probably need to use client side javascript as you can not force a browser to reload/refresh from server side...

Unless you are doing something like counting between responses...


I managed to get waht i wanted to do by using...

Response.AddHeader("REFRESH", "2;URL=home.aspx")

when a user changes their password it displays a success message, waits 2 seconds then redirects the user to the main page
