Can I add an entire folder to my Web Application Project?

Hi gang, I have been developing my first ASP.Net 2.0 website using the Web Application Project model. I ran into a funny problem and I wanted to bounce it off you guys. I started working with a component called FCKeditor that is an HTML javascript editor. In addition to a .DLL file, you have to add an entire folder of stuff including javascript, CSS, and images. I tried copying the folder as a subfolder under the project root and then tried Add / Existing Item to add the folder to my project, but you can't add folders, only individual files. Am I missing something? Is there a way to add an entire folder of content to my Web Application Project? Thanks,Kevin

Entire folder delgation to ASP.NET regarless of file extention (IIS6) - How?


Please see http://forums.asp.net/t/1611888.aspx for history.  I am also posting on this group as well since the follow on question is a generic one.  How does one register the above mentioned (IIS7) HTTP handler in II6?  It seems IIS6 doesn't have a "managed" handler option.  It seems to just have an "application extension" mapping which doesn't have a "path" option, rather just an extension.  How do I tell IIS6 for all files (regardless of extension) in a particular folder to delegate to ASP.NET?

Unique ID throughout entire request



I am hoping somene here could advise me on a better solution to my present problem.  First a little background information on the application. 

I have a web application using the 3.5 framework.  The structure of this application is as follows: UI -> WebService   -> Business Layer -> DataAccess Layer.   What I want to accomplish is for every request (click on a link or button) have a unique identifer that follows this request through its entire lifecycle.  This unique identifer can be accessible anywhere within this request.  We use Response.Redirects which could easily be changed to Server.Transfers (although I do not want to do that) but  the problem lies with the web service calls.  Currently, a GUID is set in the ApplicationRequest.  This GUID checks for a guid value in the RawURL and if so, assigns this value to a HttpContext Item.  If not, HttpContext.Items gets a new one created.  However, this idea is wrong and will need to be revisisted.  The bigger problem is with the web service calls.  Without changing every web service method signature, and every call for that matter, is there a way of getting this GUID there.  I created a web method in every web service so that each time I instantiate a web service object in the UI, before calling any

How to let user edit selected gridview columns, not entire row



I've got a gridview I would like to let the user edit a couple of columns.  Seems like everything I'm coming across so far makes the entire row editable.  

Hopefully the solution isn't too complicated.  Can someone point me in the right direction?


How can I be sure that my entire project is up-to-date and free of errors in VS2010?


Seems like a stupid question, but I will go to Build > Build Solution many many times and the build will succeed many many times, then I will put in a minor syntax error and the build will fail, BUT the build will not fail because of the minor syntax error; it will fail because of an unresolved type that I put in about twenty compiles ago. And then I will fix the minor syntax eror, and the compiler will still complain about the unresolved type. Here is my code:

<%@ Register TagPrefix="FTB" Namespace="FreeTextBoxControls" Assembly="FreeTextBox" %>
  <form runat="server">
  Hello World!!  

Pretty simple, really. I go to Buld > Build WebApplication1 and it runs OK. Now, if I put in a minor syntax error, such as substitute "forrrrrrrm" for "form" and then try to Build Solution, it complains not about the misspelled word, but about the FreeTextBox. And then if I correct the misspelled wird, it still complains about the FreeTextBox. Which leads me to believe that Building the Solution does not check absolutely 100% everything that needs to be checked. Is there a more thorough way of compiling a program that I need to use?

Copying files to a folder on web server



I have few files in FolderA on the web server.

I want the users to select a fews files from FolderA and copy them to FolderB on the same web server.

I want to list all the files in FolderA and allow the user to select a few files and copy.

How to copy the files quickly from folderA to FolderB?




Do not see the table in Database after moving the project folder



I created a ASP.NET project under Visual Web Developer 2008. Under that project I had a Database (along with ASPNETDB.MDF) which has about 3/4 tables (I had SQL server 2008). Everything was working fine (like insert, delete, etc.). And I was able to view the tables in database explorer view.

Then I had to format my computer for some reason and I copied the whole project in a USB drive and then after formatting the computer I copied the folder and tried to open it in Visual Web Developer (now I have VWD 2010). I can see the both Database under App_Data folder (ASPNETDB.mdf and the DB I created). ASPNETDB has all the tables and data as expected. But I do not see the tables under the DB I created.

I also tried in one of my friends computer who has Visual Web Developer 2008. But same result.

I am just wondering if anyone can help me with retreiving the table. I have a bad feeling that I might needed to do something to backup the data (not sure though). But the tables should be still there ... isn't it ?

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Cannot add an article to the specified folder



I've set up a sharepoint knowledgebase on my intranet site and all seemed fine.

The problem I have is that if I create a subfolder, I cannot create articles in that subfolder, as they appear in the root.


Steps taken:

  1. New|Folder - create a new folder in the knowledge base root
  2. Enter the folder
  3. New|Knowledge Base Article
  4. Verify that the path on the top of the new article edit page is "...Knowledge Base > New Folder"
  5. Save article
  6. Verify New Folder is empty and article can be found in the root of the knowledge base  

Uploading an article to the new folder is fine, as is editing/deleting the new folder itself.

Any ideas?

Changing folder name loses Person attributes


I have a custom folder content type. These folders have several attributes including text fields, choice, dates, and person lookups from AD. When I change the folder name, the folder will keep its date, choice and text box attributes, but lose the person attributes. If I change it back to its old name then it regains the person attributes. The ID is stays the same. One of the person fields is a required field, but that it still saves as an empty field. If anyone has a work around or even a suggestion as to what might be causing this it would help a lot.

Create user is creating aspxxxx.mdf database in my app_data folder


I had already setup roles for my pages and requirements call for ability to manage and create users.

So i was looking at code that allows you to do so using membership, even though i got the page to work, it was creating a database in my app_data folder.. i already have SQLExpress setup with the asp schema, but cant figure out how to get my application to use that instead of creating the db in the folder?

What am i missing or doing wrong?

I have the following setup in my web.config file..

			<deny users="?"/>
        <add name="SqlMembershipProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider, System.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"

Programmatically delete a .webpart file from wpcatalogs folder from an IIS website


We are using a third party wsp in our solution which directly adds the web parts into the web application store rather than the web part gallery(References to them are present in IIS site's wpcatalog directory). We want to remove these web part files so that the users will not be able to add these web parts to pages directly. Or any other modification so that users will not be able to add these directly. Is there a way we can do this programmatically?
