Where is the default start page specified?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
When you create a new website/web application with webforms, I've noticed that the start page is always Default.aspx, but can't find where this is specified (e.g. in the config files, etc), or if it is part of the web forms specification. Is it possible to change the startup page so that it isn't Default.aspx? If so, how do you do it?

Mysite Default Master Page



We have been using the mysite section of sharepoint for 6 months and have recently changed the default.master is there any quick way of changing all the users pages without losing anydata.

I know i can go into the Master Page library for the users, upload the new default.master and then set this as default within sharepoint designer, however this will be quite a lenghty task for me to complete for all our userbase.

Could you please advise if there is a quicker way to do this.

Where is StartPage.cproj : Custom Start Page Project Template


I am reading through Wrox Professional Visual Studio 2010.
In Chapter 3, there is an example of how to customize and extend the start page.

So he wants you to copy the files from C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\StartPages\<Culture>
C:\Users\<user name>\Documents\Visual Studio 10\StartPages. He say you may need to create this because it may not exist by default. So I would just copy the files into:
C:\Documents and Settings\Sam\My Documents\Visual Studio 2010\StartPages and work from there right?

Then he says double click StartPage.csproj to opent the WPF project in Visual Studio 2010.
But StartPage.csproj simply does not exist anywhere.

I have installed Visual Studio 2010 sdk and the Custom Start Page Project which shows up in extension manager.
I just can't figure out how to use it.

I am on Windows XP.

Can't inherit default page layout on a publishing site?

  Hi,   Implementing SharePoint for the first time.   We've got a page layout that we want to use as a default. We've got it set as the default in the top site in the site collection. However, when I create a Publishing Site with Workflow, it doesn't default to using the right layout, despite the fact the sub-site's Site Settings / Page Layouts show that it it set to inherit the default page layout from its parent.   Oddly, when I create another type of site, e.g. a Blank Site, it does inherit the default layout.   Any suggestions?   :|Ben

Request is redirected to default Web-Service page (possible cookie issue)


I have a strange problem on my web-service application:
 - when I am initating a web-service request from my client app, no matter if I am using IIS or ASP.NET development server, I'm getting the folowing exception:


System.ServiceModel.ProtocolException: The content type text/html; charset=utf-8 of the response message does not match the content type of the binding (text/xml; charset=utf-8). If using a custom encoder, be sure that the IsContentTypeSupported method is implemented properly. The first 1024 bytes of the response were: '


    <head><link rel="alternate" type="text/xml" href="/TestWebSvc.asmx?disco" />

    <style type="text/css">
        BODY { color: #000000; background-color: white; font-family: Verdana; margin-left: 0px; margin-top: 0px; }
        #content { margin-left: 30px; font-size: .70em; padding-bottom: 2em; }


 - in my client's app.config file I have pointed to an address like the following one: http://localhost/WebSvc/TestWebSvc.asmx .

 - I have installed SnifferHttpModule (http://geekswithblogs.net/robp/archive/2008/05/13/creating-a-sniffer-for-asp.net.aspx) to see the requests and responses of my web-service,

extra request to a default page on a callback


Hello guys,

I have a following issue on production server (the development environment is free of it) And it's only happening in Internet Explorer.

I add callback to a page in the old-fashioned way -> Page.ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(...)

The scenario is:

1) The default page is being loaded. On Page_OnLoad it assigns a NULL to some session key. Let's call it Control -> Session["Control"] = null;

2) User presses a button and gets redirected to a next page (let's call it NextPage.aspx) using javascript event -> window.location.assign(....) (also tried .href = ... - no help)

3) The NextPage.aspx assigns some value to Session["Control"] on Page_OnLoad

5) User clicks a button on the NextPage.aspx and a callback request is being sent to a server....

TA DA!!! The interesting part:

6) Along with the request to the NextPage.aspx another request is being sent to the default page.

7) The only response is being recieved by a client is a response from the NextPage.aspx BUT since the code on the default page is being executed it puts null to the Session["Control"] which screws all my following scenario. the default page doesn't recognize the request as a callback? so if(IsCallback) {} doesn't he
