Redirect to Self (ASP.NET)


It's easy to reset a page to it's initial state in ASP.NET by redirecting to itself. Here are 3 ways you can do it:

1. Response.Redirect(Request.Path);

In which the path to the request is presented in the following form: /MyApp/MyFile.aspx

2. Response.Redirect(Request.RawUrl);

In which not only is the path exposed, but also any querystring parameters like:

3. Response.Redirect(Request.Url.ToString());

In which not only is the path and querystring parameters exposed, but made available as an absolute reference in the form:

Interestingly enough, if you have a named anchor in the form of <a name=#test, this is not exposed by any of these methods! (You'll see how I know a post or so from now, but suffices to say that you can still get this information from the client side by parsing the window.location object:
