display files to download based on who is logged in

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I have an asp.net web app. I have secure parts to the website and currently I have it setup so that people can login with their domain accounts. The are three secure sections to the site, all of which require files of interest be displayed to the user so they can download them.Okay so this is how I see it working, people come to the home page and select on one of the three options. At this point they are prompted for there domain password then they are navigated to the secure page and a bit of code populates the page with file downloads based on who they are logged in as.The files themselves will be uploaded to the website and kept in folders named after the username. so for instance the user edwardh would be displayed the files in the folder /downloads/edwardh.I'm not sure where to start with this, any direction?

dynamically adding sql server columns based on number of files in fileuploader


I want to create a new table to sql database at runtime.  The column names would be "Name", "Date", "Event".  I would also like to have one more column name "Image" but the problem is that since the amount of images will vary, I want the application to count the amount of files in the Multiple fileuploader and then add a image column to the table for the respected amount of files. 

For example if i am uploading 3 files in the multiple fileuploader, the names should be "Name", "Date", "Event", "Image1", "image2", Image3"

I also would like that table name to be name dynamically from the textbox Name when the user enters the information.


I have the following code to make a new table, but I dont know how to name the fields at runtime like previously asked please help!!!

Code Name WinFS: Revolutionary File Storage System Lets Users Search and Manage Files Based on Conte


One of the monumental problems organizations face today is aggregating information that's stored in disparate formats. Knowledge workers have long wanted to be able to search for content independent of format. The next version of the Windows operating system, code-named "Longhorn," boasts a new storage subsystem that makes that task easier. That subsystem, code-named "WinFS," allows the user to perform searches based on the metadata of the stored item, regardless of what type of file it is or which application created it. This article covers the basic architecture of WinFS and explains how to use the WinFS managed API.

Want to create Page URL rewrite based on Users GUID and Display name?



I am using the asp.net membership. 

On my site I have a Profile.aspx page.

In the code behind of this page,  i get the logged in UserId (Guid) and pass

this to a method in my DAL. GetUserByUserId()


In my database I have a Table called Member which the method gets the data from

and displays details on the page about  the user.


What I want to happen is when they have logged in and are diverted to Profile.aspx,

the page URL shows www.MyWebSite/Profile/UsersName 

for example



is this possible. In my Member table I have FirstName and LastName columns or do I get the

name from the membership table.


even better would be they go straight to www.MyWebsite/JohnSmith.aspx


thank you for any help

How to display breakpoint and debug visual cues with custom activity designer based on WorkflowViewE

Hi,   I am developing custom activity designers based on "WorkflowViewElement" instead of "ActivityDesigner" in my xaml. It allows me to have greater control of the look and feel of the designer. However I noticed that with this approach, the breakpoint visual cue (Dark red solid circle that appears on the left side of the designer when you set breakpoint on the designer) is not visible. It works fine when you write your designed based on "ActivityDesigner". The same behavior happens to the debug visual cue when you debugging the WF. It appears as bright yellow rectangle surrounding the activity designer if you are based on "ActivityDesigner", but it is not available when your designer is based on"WorkflowViewElement". Any help is highly appreciated. Li

How to display TreeViewItems different ways based on the item type under a single node?

Hi, I am having trouble trying to display hiearchical data under each node in two different ways depending on the data.  I hope someone will be able to provide me some help on this since I am rather new to WPF development. Maybe I am going about this all wrong but for now, I am trying to create a customized TreeView to represent data similar to the xml I provided in the code below.  The <ItemsPresenter/> instances listed in the code are not exactly doing what I need.  I will probably need to filter the content that I list with each of the two <ItemsPresenter/> tags based on the type of each item although I have no idea if this is possible.   <Window x:Class="Wpf_treeview_testing.Window1" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" Title="Window1" Height="300" Width="300"> <!-- * The "xmlData" describe roughly the type of data that I require visual representaion of. * Since I could not find a WPF Control that will present a Hierachical Data Template close to what we need, I am trying to setup a TreeView to represent this information by using a ControlTemplate for TreeViewItem. * The preferred result is to present different items types in

Display Value Based on ID Field in Datalist


This should be very simple but I guess my mind is even more simple.

I am trying to display a starting date from an access database based on the dateId field in a datalist.

On page 1 (using a master page) the customer selects a starting date from a dropdownlist. When the customer hits the submit button, they are transferred to page 2 where the selected starting date is displayed.

The database table is basically:

DateID Startingdate

1             1/1/2010

2             2/1/2010

3             3/1/2010

4             4/1/2010

5             5/1/2010

The dropdownlist from page 1 is:

<asp:DropDownList class="formtextbox" ID="DrpStartCov1" runat="server" 
                DataTextField="Date" DataValueField="DateID">

My select command is:
SelectCommand="SELECT [NextMonth], [DateID] FROM [List]"

VS 2010 unable to edit or display xaml files.


I am having a problem using the editor for xaml files in Visual Studio 2010.

I have used Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 for many years.  Over the last year or more I have been constructing and maintaining a Silverlight application, editing both the xaml code and using the design mode.  I am quite familiar with it and it worked fine.

However we recently installed several copies of Visual Studio 2010 as trial versions and since it seemed OK we converted to the full version.  However now I am having trouble viewing xaml files in the editor, in either the design mode or as text. 

Double clicking on a xaml file in the Solution Explorer, which should start the xaml editor, now does very little, leaving the main screen blank. The file seems to be open since it is listed in the list of open files in the 'Windows' drop down menu.  If I ask it to reload the file it says it is already open and do I want to close it before continuing.  But it is not accessible or visible.

Right clicking on a xaml file and selecting 'Open with..' shows the 'Automatic Editor Selector' is selected as default.  If I select 'Text Editor' I can at least see and edit the xaml code.  But I can not see the design mode.  If I select 'Windows Presentation Foundation Designer with encoding' from the 'Op
