Hi Thabang,

  1. No, that's not possible. An ASCX control cannot live alone. It should always be hosted in a WebForm (ASPX). And you can only redirect to WebForms or generic handlers. Actually only to generic handlers which are the basic entry points for web requests. The WebForms is just a custom generic handler.
  2. In short .ascx is not page to redirect. Its a user control. If we need to use it,we have to put it on any page and then only it can be visible in the browser. We never use .ascx as stand alone.

Hope this help you
