I created new SharePoint 2013 Empty Project. I used Visual WebPart. I want to redirect from page to another page. Ex: www.google.com

SPUtility.Redirect("http://www.google.com", SPRedirectFlags.RelativeToLayoutsPage, HttpContext.Current);

When I run this page I get this error: enter image description here

URL is:


How can I redirect to http://www.google.com?

The SPRedirect Utility is meant for internal use mainly -e.g. _layouts folder and other SharePoint specific.

For External links, rather use the more traditional HttpContext.Current.Response.Redirect

  • Thanks @C. Marius. It works fine. I have a new questions. When I create page with custom webpart, redirect is run. But then when I open page redirect doesn't work. What is the reason?

  • If you just want to use the webpart for redirecting user to other page then perhaps you can use window.location.href="full url including http" inside a window.onload function
