OPen Visualforce Page on a different Tab, when redirected thru Apex

I am using PageReference.setRedirect(true) to open up a Visualforce page from one VF page. Is there a way to open this on a different tab.

 

 

Thanks for any help

If you need to open the VF page on a new tab (or new window) it's best to it via HTML elements rather than the Controller code.

 

 

<a href="/apex/myvisualforcepage" target="_blank">Next Step</a>

 

If you need a button to do that you can utilize javascript.

You can also use the same "target" attribute on "commandlink".

 

If you want a button,then use commandlink and inside the commandlink you can have a commandbutton with no action.. Not sure if it would work across browsers but worth giving a try..

 

Cheers!!
