C# - Angle Brackets In Page Head Element?
stackoverflow.com
PHP experience (which meaby is causing this problem) and Iam having small problem passing data from codebehind to view-source. I declared string variable on codebehind side such as: ... public string mystring = "Scotty"; protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) { ... So now I want to use it in view-code but when I put it in angle brackets (<%: or <%=) and put it in head element I got no access to this value. On the other hand when I put it in BODY element everything is ok. My failing example (simplified): <head runat="server"> <script language="javascript"> function beamMeUp() { alert(<%=mystring;%>); } </script> </head> <body> <input type="button" onclick="javascript:beamMeUp" value="Warp6" /> </body> why I can't use it (the <%=mystring;%>) in HEAD but i can use it in BODY ?

Web Forms :: Transfer Data From Gridview Row In Framed Aspx Page To The Other Page
forums.asp.net
I am not sure if this is possible (I am quite new at asp.net stuff but quite experience in VB ) I have managed to do the following, with no problems: I have a framed page, top page has a gridview and seach fields to query an Access database. Each record has 40+ fields The bottom framed page, has some textboxes. Once you do a search on top page (gridview), you are able to select whatever row it is shown. At this stage (when record is selected on top page) using "select" or whatever, I would like to transfer the data from the selected row and put them on the many textboxes on the bottom framed page. I know there are better ways to do this, however on the bottom page, users are able to ammend, add etc additional values, as well as doing some calculations, prior to transfering the info to (yet again) another form, so needs to do it this way as per request from my boss.

C# - .Net XML Serialization Based On A XSD?
stackoverflow.com
I've been serialising and deserialising .net objects using the XmlSerializer class without problem, however we now need somebody else to look at that data to perform some analysis on it.In order to help with that we've produced an XSD based on our class like so: xsd.exe /t:DataClass Assembly.exe The start of the XSD looks like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <xs:schema elementFormDefault="qualified" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"> <xs:element name="DataClass" nillable="true" type="DataClass" />[code]..... Bizarly, the XML produced does not adhere to the XSD generated from the same class.My question then is, is there a way of telling the XmlSerializer to serialize the object based on a given XSD? As an aside, I've looked at other ways of fixing this: I've tried re-generating the classes from the generated XSD - this seemed to have the same problem.

C# - Serialization Across Projects With Inheritance?
stackoverflow.com
I have a base class ("MyBaseClass") in a project called "BaseFramework" which is included in several solutions within the company. There are several derived class's in various projects throughout the company that inherit from "MyBaseClass". If I then create a List and add derived class's to it, it will not serialize. I realise that if I were attempting to serialize this list, and the base class and derived class were in the same project, I could simply apply the "XmlInclude" attribute to the base class and include all of the derived class's. This is however not possible across projects, because that would require a circular dependency.

C# - XML Serialization Assembly For Non-web Projects

C# - How To Serialize Only Some Properties In .Net
stackoverflow.com
This is for a web project so i have several classes that inherit from Web.UI. I only want to serialize very particular properties (basically, only local properties) I'm aware of the XMLIgnore property that can be placed on a property to ignore items, but this won't work in my context since that would require modifying a bunch of stuff that i really don't want to modify (and probably can't). So how do i tell the xml serializer to ignore everything except for X and Y or tell it to seralize just X and Y? i could just create my own xml in a string builder or something and if that's the only way, so be it. however i'm looking for a method that will employ the built in XML stuff.

Rather than try to reinvent the wheel, how to create a stacked/segmented bar or point me to an existing control.

I'm looking for code examples or already-built controls. EDIT: For completeness: int[] segments = { 10, 5, 45, 20, 20 }; Panel horizontalBar = new Panel(); for(int segmentIndex = 0; segmentIndex < segments.Length; ++ segmentIndex) { horizontalBar.Controls.Add(new Panel() { ID = String.Format("segment-{0}", segmentIndex), Width = Unit.Percentage(segments[segmentIndex]), CssClass = "segment" }); } this.Page.Form.Controls.Add(horizontalBar);

Call SQL Function With Multiple Parameters From C# Web Page?
stackoverflow.com
I have an MS SQL function that is called with the following syntax: SELECT Field1, COUNT(*) AS RecordCount FROM GetDecileTable('WHERE ClientID = 7 AND LocationName = ''Default'' ', 10) The first parameter passes a specific WHERE clause that is used by the function for one of the internal queries. When I call this function in the front-end C# page, I need to send parameter values for the individual fields inside of the WHERE clause (in this example, both the ClientID & LocationName fields) The current C# code looks like this: String SQLText = "SELECT Field1, COUNT(*) AS RecordCount FROM GetDecileTable('WHERE ClientID = @ClientID AND LocationName = @LocationName ',10)"; SqlCommand Cmd = new SqlCommand(SQLText, SqlConnection); Cmd.Parameters.Add("@ClientID", SqlDbType.Int).Value = 7; // Insert real ClientID Cmd.Parameters.Add("@LocationName", SqlDbType.NVarChar(20)).Value = "Default"; // Real code uses Location Name from user input SqlDataReader reader = Cmd.ExecuteReader(); When I do this, I get the following code from SQL profiler: exec sp_executesql N'SELECT Field1, COUNT(*) as RecordCount FROM GetDecileTable (''WHERE ClientID = @ClientID AND LocationName = @LocationName '',10)', N'@ClientID int,@LocationID nvarchar(20)', @ClientID=7,@LocationName=N'Default' When this executes, SQL throws an error that it cannot parse past the first mention of @ClientID stating that the Scalar Variable @ClientID must be defined. If I modify the code to declare the variables first (see below), then I receive an error at the second mention of @ClientID that the variable already exists. exec sp_executesql N'DECLARE @ClientID int; DECLARE @LocationName nvarchar(20); SELECT Field1, COUNT(*) as RecordCount FROM GetDecileTable (''WHERE ClientID = @ClientID AND LocationName = @LocationName '',10)', N'@ClientID int,@LocationName nvarchar(20)', @ClientID=7,@LocationName=N'Default' I know that this method of adding parameters and calling SQL code from C# works well when I am selecting data from tables, but I am not sure how to embed parameters inside of the ' quote marks for the embedded WHERE clause being passed to the function.

Integrate HTML / Design With C# Code In MVC?
stackoverflow.com
We're working on a new ASP.Net site. The last major site we did was in classic ASP--the procedure we used there was to have the HTML completed first, then "bring it to life" with the ASP code. In the ASP.Net world, how does this work? I.e. how do the designers do their work if much of the mark-up is actually being generated by the server controls? We are also looking at ASP.Net MVC as a potential lightweight alternative. Would be very interested to know what was worked best for people in both scenarios in terms of working with the designers and integrating their work with the code. UPDATE: I refined what I was asking here, not exactly the same question but similar enough so this one could probably be merged with it.

I ideally want to show a js alert window on error. protected void btnX_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { throw new ApplicationException("test"); } protected void ScriptManager_AsyncPostBackError(object sender, AsyncPostBackErrorEventArgs e) { ScriptManager.AsyncPostBackErrorMessage = e.Exception.Message; } Markup: <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript"> Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager.getInstance().add_endRequest(EndRequestHandler); function EndRequestHandler(sender, e) { window.alert(e.get_error().name); } </script> <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager" runat="server" AllowCustomErrorsRedirect="true" OnAsyncPostBackError="ScriptManager_AsyncPostBackError" />

C# - Using Outputcache Together With Urlrewriting
stackoverflow.com
I've got a problem using outputcache together with urlrewriting. We've got an application that rewrites url (IE [URL]). Based on the URL (/about/) we figure out which content to show. Now we're trying to add outputcache to that page: < %@ outputcache duration="600" location="Server" varybyparam="Custom" varybycustom="RawURL" %> And in the Global.asax we override GetVaryByCustomString like below: public override string GetVaryByCustomString(HttpContext context, string custom) { if (custom == "RawUrl") { return context.Request.RawUrl; } else { return string.Empty; } } However, when we publish the page i'd like to invalidate the cache so that the editors see the change directly. But no matter what I try, I cannot seem to invalidate the cache. If I'd like to invalidate "/about/" I would like to do this: HttpResponse.RemoveOutputCacheItem("/about/"); That doesn't work unfortunately. The only thing that seems to work is: HttpResponse.RemoveOutputCacheItem("/page.aspx"); This clears the cache for all my pages, not just "/about/". Is there any way to invalidate the cache based on the url? Or should we provide a cache key or something per page to be able to invalidate the cache programmatically?

C# - ELMAH - Only Sending Specific Exception Type Via Mail
stackoverflow.com
I have ELMAH set up for a webapp, logging exceptions to a SQL server. I wish to have ELMAH send me an email too, but only when a specific exception is thrown (ie. MySpecialException). ELMAH must still log all exceptions to SQL server. I know you can do it programmatically in global.asax, but I'd prefer to use web.config. So, how do I restrict ELMAH error mails to filter out everything but a specific exception type, using web.config? UPDATE The filter ended up looking like this: <test> <and> <not> <is-type binding="Exception" type="MyApp.MySpecialException" /> </not> <regex binding="FilterSourceType.Name" pattern="mail" caseSensitive="false"/> </and> </test>

C# - Whenever RewritePath() Is Called, Page.IsPostBack Is False?
stackoverflow.com
I'm developing a custom URL Rewriter for a ASP.Net 3.5 project. This rewriter is not functionally different than most rewriters out there, the only difference being that the friendly URL collection is not loaded from a web.config file -- it's coming from a database instead. I made the naive assumption that it would be easy to develop a custom rewriter module from scratch, but now I know the mess I put myself in. I digress; let's go straight to the technical issues. While testing the rewriter, I set up a friendly url that would take the user to a web form. Postbacks from this form should not alter the friendly address, as anyone would expect, sohttp://my.web.site/app_root/FriendlyURL is always rewritten asttp://my.web.site/app_root/not_friendly/form.aspxThings are fine when the browser first loads the FriendlyURL. The page comes up and is completely functional. However, when the form is posted back to the server, the page simply reloads but, at server-side, IsPostBack is false. It's like F5 was hit, except that a HTTP POST had indeed occurred.Unsurprisingly, when the interaction occurs through the "unfriendly" URL, the POST action triggers the postback as expected. This evidence suggests that HttpContext.RewritePath is somehow messing with the page lifecycle in a way that it loses sense of the postback operation.

C# - Retrieving Keys And NewValues Within A Formview With Manual Data Binding
stackoverflow.com
I have a Formview binded in the code file to a generic list. Now, upon editing of a record, I wish to access the Keys and NewValues out of the FormViewUpdateEventArgs parameter of the ItemUpdating event handler method. From what I've tried and searched over the internet as of now, I've come to know that updated values are only available if the Formview is set a data source control on the markup page else they'd be null. Is this true? Secondly, at this moment I am casting the sender object to formview and individually filling each object property by using FindControl method to find and retrieve values present in the controls. Is this the best way to do this task? As an example, this is what I am doing atm: FormView currentForm = (FormView)sender; ListObject.ID = new Guid(((HiddenField)(currentForm.FindControl("hdnID"))).Value); ListObject.Name = ((TextBox)(currentForm.FindControl("txtName"))).Text;

C# - TreeView Control Unexpected Event Behavior?

In the MSDN is writen about TreeNode that: "By default, a node is in selection mode." "To put a node into selection mode, set the node's NavigateUrl property to an empty string."

"Setting TreeNodeSelectAction value TreeNodeSelectAction.Select Raises the SelectedNodeChanged event when a node is selected." Here is the problem and possibly a bug in the control: When I set the TreeNode object PopulateOnDemand value to true and call the Collapse() function on that node.Then the TreeNodeExpanded event is raised in addition to the SelectedNodeChanged event.This is in complate contradiction to what is writen in the MSDN.According to the MSDN this sould happen only if TreeNodeSelectAction Property is set to TreeNodeSelectAction.SelectExpand value.

How To Consume A Atom Feed From Blogspot On C# Website
www.sitepoint.com
I need to consume a atom feed from blogspot on my asp.net C# site. The problem is I am getting this error when trying to load the XmlDocument from the URL: '', hexadecimal value 0x1F, is an invalid character. Line 1, position 1. I tried going through a webresponse and replace that byte with string.Empty. But still did not work. The strange thing is I have consumed a atom feed before. Tried using my current code with another atom feed and it works no problem. After trial and error, I found the difference is the working one is contentType text/xml while the wone that does not work is application/atom+xml. If i write out the response from the working one... I see the feed. If I write the response from the non working one, i get jumbled up chars. Like if you open a .exe file in notepad. Funny chars and things. I have tried changing the Encoding, but nothing worked.how do I handle atom feeds with content-type of application/atom+xml?

C# - Passing JSON Serialized Data Via Hidden Field?
stackoverflow.com
In ASP.NET WebForms I want to pass arbitrary data from server to client and back again. I am serializing to JSON and have been simply producing JavaScript that creates the object on the client. I have no problem sending data to the server with ajax, but there are situations where I also want to send a Javascript object data back to the server on postbacks. So I guess it needs to be in a hidden field. 1) What is the best way to do this in terms of minimizing complexity and optimizing space and efficiency? In researching this I discovered Protocol Buffers but there does not seem to be a good C# implementation. I did find one, but it was a couple years old and self-described as buggy so that scared me. 2) If I just pass a JSON string, how can I be sure it will be safe to include as the value for a hidden field? Is there any reason I might not want to do this? I could Base64 encode, but it seems like this adds a lot of overhead. What is considered the best or preferred method?

C# - Calling Response.TransmitFile() From Static Method
stackoverflow.com
I have a number of pages which need to support exporting data to an Excel spreadsheet. I can generate the Excel files just fine, but I'm trying to work out how to abstract this behavior so it's easily reusable from all of the pages where I need it. My current idea is to use a static utility method, as follows: [Code].... The click handler where I'm calling SendExcelFile looks like this: protected void lnkExport_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { List<List<string>> dataList = GatherDataForSpreadsheet(); Utility.SendExcelFile(this, "fileNameForDownload.xlsx", dataList, "MyReports"); } This code works just fine as an instance method of the calling page. As a static method, though, it doesn't work at all. When I click the button that invokes this, the browser shows the loading animations indefinitely, but never prompts for a file download. EDIT: If I remove the call to File.Delete() at the end, the method works as expected. Does Response.TransmitFile() do the transfer asynchronously? EDIT 2: I just needed to call Response.Flush() before I deleted the file.

C# - MVC.NET Drag And Drop Toolbox To Build Layout Page At Runtime?
stackoverflow.com
I'm trying to create a drag and drop style toolbox using MVC.NET, similar to Visual Studio for an application I'm developing. Basically the first part of the app allows the user to create a custom layout which will be used throughout the site. I've tried a few different approaches to this but can't seem to hit one that works. My last attempt used the jQueryUI modal to allow the user to input the attributes of the item, say a div. This works and I can use AJAX to post the attribute values to my controller. This is where I get stuck. I don't know what would be the best way to append the item to the layout page. I was toying around with Streamwriter but it was proving difficult to keep track of where on the page the item was placed. I'm in the process of trying to do it via jQuery, but I'm just wondering if there is any options in the jQuery library or MVC.NET framework which I don't know about that might be useful.
