Get Public String in HTML doesn´t work in this case?

Hi, I am trying to retreive a public String in code behind in the HTML code like below but the compiler says that there is Illegal characters in path. I wonder if it is possible to pass a public String here in this case like this ?  <%@ Page Language="C#" ValidateRequest="false" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Hello.aspx.cs" Inherits="Hello" %> <%@ PreviousPageType VirtualPath="<%# previousURL%>" %> (code behind): public String previousURL = "someURL";  

Html.DropDownList using a List

This has to be a simple thing, but for whatever reason, I'm just not finding it. I want to use the HTML Helper function to create a DropDownList based on a List<string> (and actually have it bind to the data field on the model).  The simplest example, I suppose, would be: <%: Html.DropDownList("Material", new SelectList(new[] {"Wood","Brick","Metal"})) %> This creates the items in the drop-down, but of course, there's nothing in this line that would bind it to my model (model.Material).  I've done drop-downs with collections of models, where you can bind the Data and Display attributes to properties of the class, but I don't have a class here, just a List. Any ideas?

VWD2010, MVC2, Html.ActionLink and Application[]



This is my code:

<%@ Control Language="C#" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewUserControl" %>
    if (Request.IsAuthenticated) {
        <%:Application["Welcome"] %> <b><%: Page.User.Identity.Name %></b>!
        [ <%: Html.ActionLink(Application["LogOut"].ToString, "LogOff", "Account") %> ]
    else {
        [ <%: Html.ActionLink(Application["LogIn"].ToString, "LogOn", "Account") %> ]


What I want to do is pretty simple, I set appropriate values in the application array at the global.asax level and would then want to see those values be written in place of the default ones. That obviously does not happen or I wouldn't be writing here :-P


It gives out an error saying it doesn't find an correct overload for the method ActionLink(or something along these lines anyway).

Clearly, that's wrong :-P since I would expect it to display m

Simple ASP.NET SOAP request to return string



I have a requirement to build a simple ASP.NET web page which sends some parameters to a web service, and then displays the string which was returned.

I'm a complete .NET newby and the only examples I can find seem really really complex.  I just need something mega simple, but which an handle parameters being sent to the web service.  Can anyone point me in the direction of a simple bit of C# which will do this with no frills or fuss?

Any help much appreciated, thanks!

MVC3 Razor - Option to Not have Html encoding


Since all calls to methods (using Razor View Engine and syntax) that return strings have their result Html encoded, is there a way (or an option) to not have the return values html encoded?

For example if I have a simple method like so:

protected string RenderTable(IEnumerable<T> data)
  /* Return some html */

and then in a view (using the Razor View engine) I have code like this:


I'd like the returned string to be inserted into the view as-is and not Html encoded.

What are my options?

Passing UTF-8 encoded string to SOAP


I am using a third party Web Service. I am passing a string to a function in that service, that string, which i am reading from a UTF-8 text file. The problem it that the string contain some non ASCII characters.

Now if i save that text file to ANSI format, read it in a string and pass that string to Service then it works smoothly but with UTF-8 encoded string the service throw exception "The request failed with HTTP status 400: Bad Request."

Long story short

  1. NON ASCII characters
  2. UTF-8 encoding
  3. SOAP

I am using ASP.NET.

Third party sevice is in java. I also tried it by making a web service in .net, but there was issue there too.

MVC2: Change the default generated HTML when creating a strongly typed view


Is there any way to change the HTML that is generated by default when you create a strongly typed view in MVC2?

I currently get a structure like this:

            <div class="editor-label">
                <%: Html.LabelFor(model => model.category_id) %>
            <div class="editor-field">
                <%: Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.category_id) %>
                <%: Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.category_id) %>

I want to change it to a structure like this:

                <div><%: Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.user_login) %></div>
                <div><%: Html.LabelFor(model => model.user_login) %></div>
                <div><%: Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.user_login) %></div>
