What is the correct error handling in custom model binding?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hello,I am working on a Custom Model Binder where a certain error can occur.When this happens it returns null and a error is added to the ModelState.The problem is that in some projects I am using Fluent Validation and the errors messages I am adding through FV are not taking effect.The message added by the Model Binder always prevails.Should the Model Binder add error messages or just bind the field and return null if some problem happened?What would be the correct implementation for this?Thanks,Miguel

Error Handling: Throwing Custom Exception Types from a Managed COM+ Server Application


Exception handling semantics in .NET are based on type, so you can create custom exceptions that have their own properties and methods. In .NET, exceptions are first-class citizens, and since they're the built-in error handling mechanism, all .NET-compliant languages must support exceptions. In addition, COM+ services are available to .NET code as Enterprise Services, so you can leverage exceptions in your Enterprise Services design.In this article the author describes custom exceptions, throwing exceptions across COM interop boundaries, and working with Enterprise Services.

HOWTO: Verify that custom error handling solutions do not expose padding oracle


I've done some digging and come up with what I think is useful information for you if you have a custom error handling solution in place instead of or as well as the usual ASP.NET <customErrors> stuff.

From comments on ScottGu's post it seem to be that the main suspect to be the actual padding oracle is WebResource.axd (possibly other axd's).

  • If you look in .NET Reflector at the IHttpHandler.ProcessRequest method in  System.Web.Handlers.AssemblyResourceLoader there's a call to Page.DecryptString early on.
  • This is the thing that will cause a HTTP 500 status to be returned if it fails, e.g. if the padding, etc in Request.QueryString["d"] is invalid
  • If the attacker manages to get the padding right, then it continues on, ultimately to call throw new HttpException(404...)

It's this differentiation: is the padding correct (404) or not (500) that is at the root of the exploit: the padding oracle.

If your error handling returns exactly the same response for both - it masks the oracle. To test if you're vulnerable externally, a simple test is to request both:

  • webresource.axd?d=foo
  • webre

How to display model level custom data annotation validation error?


Hello Experts,

I am a MVC newbie & am lost in various ways validation can be implemented in my application.

I created a custom model-level data annotation validator attribute, but am unable to display its error message in the view. Basically, I have let's say 5 properties in the Entity class Job (model-level custom attribute called UniqueKeywords defined on it):

1) LoginID: value comes in the URL

2) Title: Required property level attribute defined on it

3) CatID1, CatID2, CatID3 - 3 categoryIDs - these are dropdowns in the view with same list of keywords in all 3.

I want to mandate that the values picked by the user in all 3 category dropdowns should be different.

With reference to the code pasted below, here is the explanation of what happens:

When I submit the form without specifying a title or picking anything from any of the 3 category dropdowns, the validation occurs for the property level Required attribute as well as model level uniquekeywords attribute, but the error is displayed only next to the required field "Title". I can confirm that the custom validation also works by filling in some text in the Title field & then re-posting the form...this re-displays the view, but the error message "Category cannot be duplicated" is not displayed.

Error while using exception handling block el 4.1


Hi Folks,


i am trying to use tyhe exception handling block of Enterprise library 4.1.


I just createda polisy and used IndexOutOfRangeException and added a replace handler and a logging handler to it.

I am using the NotifyRethrow PostHandlingAction to the exception.


During runtime I am getting an exception on the HandleException event, The exception is added below:



Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Source Error:

Line 42:             catch (Exception ex)
Line 43:             {
Line 44:                 bool reThrow = ExceptionPolicy.HandleException(ex, "ReplacePolicy");

Custom Control Design-Time SiteMap Provider Error


Greetings - I was referred here by MSDN forums hope this is the right place -  

I have a custom control (:WebControl) that renders web.sitemap in a specific way. While it runs error free and produces the expected result, at Design-Time it complains

Error Creating Control - MyControl  The provider 'AspNetXmlSiteMapProvider' specified for the defaultProvider does not exist in the providers collection.

I have discovered that the error is cause by this line of code:

string div = string.Format("<div class='{0}' id='{1}'>{2}</div>", this.CssClass, this.ID.ToString(), EnumerateNodesRecursive(SiteMap.RootNode, level));

or more specifically, by the reference to SiteMap.RootNode - I am not clear what is missing thoough because I have configured the SiteMapProvider in web.config as this:

        <add name="AspNetXmlSiteMapProvider" 
             type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" 

Custom Control Design view error



I have created a custom control from scratch and it works fine as in you can build the project that uses it and it works fine at runtime. Problem is when you go to design view the control shows an error in the place of where the control should be rendered.

Error: '<SomeValue>' Could not be set to '<SomeProperty>'

This shows up on all my custom set properties. These properties are created as basic as possible. I can give the properties values in Source view and run the app just fine. I can even add a Onclick event. If I don't set any custom properties the control will render fine in Design view. It's only when I set a value to a custom property.

Property Code Example:

public string Text
                string ret = "";
                object obj = ViewState["Text"];
                if (obj != null)
                    ret = obj.ToString();
                return ret;
                ViewState["Text"] = value;

I've even removed the Category and Description tags with no difference.

I don't know if what I said makes sens, but I hope it

Foundations: Error Handling In Workflows


Workflows often define long-running processes and an unhandled failure usually means termination. Avoid this scenario by handling exceptions properly.

.NET Exceptions: Make the Transition from Traditional Visual Basic Error Handling to the Object-Orie


If you're used to Visual Basic 6.0 and you're making the transition to Microsoft .NET, you will find that error handling is quite different from what you've used for years. Visual Basic .NET uses a more object-oriented solution to signaling and responding to unexpected problems while your program is running. This approach, called structured exception handling, has a number of advantages over the On Error statements provided in previous versions of Visual Basic. For instance, exceptions give you lots more information about exactly what went wrong in your app. To help you take advantage of this modern error handling paradigm, this article will show you how to raise and respond to exceptions, as well as how to create your own custom exception classes.

Propagate Error Info: Use ATL and C++ to Implement Error-Handling COM Objects


Predefined error codes returned from HRESULT aren't always much help for debugging COM C++ code. The C++ macros provided with this article produce an XML file listing the error and its context to make debugging easier. This article begins with an overview of error handling in COM, then discusses the COM interfaces used in the macros. It explains how C++ exceptions are caught and converted to COM-compatible error information, how events are logged with the event viewer, and how context is reported in the description string of IErrorInfo. The macros handle logic errors and errors returned by an object or API.
