Post and redirect from code behind of aspx page

Here is a code that I found searching in google but can't remember from where :( . It is  very useful.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Collections.Specialized;
using System.Text;

/// <summary>
/// Summary description for PostHelper
/// </summary>
public class PostHelper
public PostHelper()
// TODO: Add constructor logic here
/// <summary>
/// POST data and Redirect to the specified url using the specified page.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="page">The page which will be the referrer page.</param>
/// <param name="destinationUrl">The destination Url to which
/// the post and redirection is occuring.</param>
/// <param name="data">The data should be posted.</param>
/// <Author>Samer Abu Rabie</Author>

public static void RedirectAndPOST(Page page, string destinationUrl,
NameValueCollection data)
//Prepare the Posting form
string strForm = PreparePOSTForm(destinationUrl, data);
//Add a literal control the specified page holding
//the Post Form, this is to submit the Posting form with the request.
page.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl(strForm));

/// <summary>
/// This method prepares an Html form which holds all data
/// in hidden field in the addetion to form submitting script.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="url">The destination Url to which the post and redirection
/// will occur, the Url can be in the same App or ouside the App.</param>
/// <param name="data">A collection of data that
/// will be posted to the destination Url.</param>
/// <returns>Returns a string representation of the Posting form.</returns>
/// <Author>Samer Abu Rabie</Author>

private static String PreparePOSTForm(string url, NameValueCollection data)
//Set a name for the form
string formID = "PostForm";
//Build the form using the specified data to be posted.
StringBuilder strForm = new StringBuilder();
strForm.Append("<form id=\"" + formID + "\" name=\"" +
formID + "\" action=\"" + url +
"\" method=\"POST\">");

foreach (string key in data)
strForm.Append("<input type=\"hidden\" name=\"" + key +
"\" value=\"" + data[key] + "\">");

//Build the JavaScript which will do the Posting operation.
StringBuilder strScript = new StringBuilder();
strScript.Append("<script language='javascript'>");
strScript.Append("var v" + formID + " = document." +
formID + ";");
strScript.Append("v" + formID + ".submit();");
//Return the form and the script concatenated.
//(The order is important, Form then JavaScript)
return strForm.ToString() + strScript.ToString();
