Get DNN Module Tab ID or Redirect custom module to another custom module

Dear Friends
Its common and easy that how to find the DNN module ID for redirecting one module to another. I am posting for those who did not have an idea how to redirect your one custom module to another through programming

public int findPageTabId(string friendlyName, int portalId)

            int intModTabID = -1;
            ModuleInfo objModuleInfo = new ModuleInfo();
            ModuleController objModuleContr = new ModuleController();
            objModuleInfo = objModuleContr.GetModuleByDefinition(portalId, friendlyName);
            intModTabID = objModuleInfo.TabID;
            return intModTabID; 


on the button click or any function you can call this function with redirect option 

  protected void Button3_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            int tabId=0;
            UDF myudf = new UDF();
            tabId = myudf.findPageTabId("Your module friendly Name", this.PortalId);
