Open New Window from gridview button

Open New Window from gridview button

I have a datagridview with an imagebutton that will allow the user to select a record within the grid for editing purposes. I'm trying to open a new window instead of a response.redirect. see code below
The only way I can seem to get this to work is by using response.write. is there a better way to do this ? Thanks in advance

Protected Sub lnkEdit_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

Dim lnkbtn As ImageButton = TryCast(sender, ImageButton)
Dim gvrow As GridViewRow = TryCast(lnkbtn.NamingContainer, GridViewRow)
Dim id As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(dg.DataKeys(gvrow.RowIndex).Value.ToString())

Session("id") = id


End Sub

RE: Open New Window from gridview button

Just attach a javascript call to the control you want to trigger the window.open
in that function set your options etc and call window.open()
