Opening a link with parameters to a new window

How do I open a link with parameters to a new window? For example, in a search page, when a user gives the search criteria, the output should be shown in new window.
In Windows, you have to code the LinkLabel.LinkClicked event in order for it do something. When you create the new form that will be opened, you can pass arguments to it in its constructor, like any other class. You just have to create an additional constructor in your form that knows how to process that data:
public MyForm : Form
  public MyForm(string searchedFor, int maxCount ....)
      // Use these values to customize the UI or get results.
