“What is this amazing tag?” you say.  “How can I slay the page flashing beast?” you ask.  Just add the following meta-tag to the <head> of your page or in your master page.

Listing 1

<meta http-equiv="Page-Exit" Content="blendTrans(Duration=0.01)"/>

Most likely the reason that I forgot this tag is that it is usually used to create a highly painful user experience, by blending one page to the other.  However, when the duration is moved down to 0.01, like I have it here, the transition from postback to refresh is so fast that the human eye does not see it and all realization of a page flash is utterly removed.

I've been having headaches from a custom control that, even when in an update panel, caused the page to flash.

This solution seems to be working so far... Thanks a lot!
