    Using the latest version, I am using the NavigateUrl property of the RadToolBarButton, which does redict the user to the location (a relative path in the same web site), but the Request.UrlReferrer is NULL. The Toolbar is not using AJAX, just a full postback.

    Is this expected behavior? How would I determine the page sending the user to the new page?

    Hi Dennis,

    The issue is caused by a work-around for an Internet Explorer bug. I changed the work-around, so the referrer should be passed correctly from now on (the fix will be included in internal builds starting from next week, and of course, in the official service pack).

    Just to mention it, be careful when relying on referrer headers, since they can be hidden by browser.

    Kind regards,
