IE 5-9 are slow to work my SQL databound menu

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I have a sqldatasource menu; 10 parents (catagories) with 77 children (subjects) & 627 grandkids (articles). There is no sitemap per say, the breadcrumbs are generated from code behind. This menu (to my understanding) is pure Asp.net with no tables and uses a generated XML file to populate the menu. I have Windows 7 on 1 disk & XP pro on another and have tested my website on both. I have a working local host on my Win7 in VWDE 2008 but I use the TinyMCE application to populate the library at my hosting service. I open my website in Opera, FireFox, Chrome & Safari all work the main navigation menu with amazing speed. I'm happy with the amount of $$ I gave the programmer except IE (all of them) work the menu like molasses. I hoped IE 9 would resolve this but I've been playing with it and yes it is better - actually it measures up to the speed of IE 5 on this issue but still slow in comparison. So I'm asking someone to not solve this for me but give me some knowledge so that I can better state my case to the programmer I hire. I have found out that I can bleed a lot of $$ on vague statements. The slowest IE works the menu (matt2414.info) is on the parents, faster on the children and as fast as the other browsers on the grandchildren. I've spent a lot of time trying to understand any of this but can't and when IE 9 failed to work the menu like t

Sharepoint2007 + Ajax slow work

Hello, I write Sharepoint WebPart with jQuery plagin jqGrid to show DB data in table view on Sharepoint Server 2007 (of cource to manipulate with data jQuery plagin use Ajax technology). It works fine, but I have a very important trouble with productivity, it's unacceptable for my project. As I see the trouble is that Ajax work very slow on Sharepoint. For test I wrote ASP.NET project with the same code and same data, user can get and update data less than 1 second, the same action on Sharepoint takes over 12 seconds. IT'S UNACCEPTABLE!!! Does any body can help me? Any suggestions...

Why JQuery menu does not work for pages which are in a separat folder pages?


I have added a jquey menu in my master page its working fine for those asp.net pages which are at the same level as master page.

But this menu isn't working at all for all of those page which aur in Editor's and Admin's folder. In these pages menu is displaying as simple html menu and unfortunately no jquery effect is shown on it.

I'm very confused why this menu isn't working for the pages which are in a seprate folder while the master page is added at the root level outside of all these folders.

Please let me know why its doing so?



Edit in Microsoft SharePoint Designer on the drop-down menu doesn't work


I am trying to launch Designer via Site Actions > Site Settings > Master Pages Gallery > right click and select Edit In SharePoint Designer.  Instead of launching Designer it launchs Microsoft word.  I am the site collection administrator and I do have Designer on my computer.  Can anyone tell me why this short cut doesn't work? 

There are no mistakes; every result tells you something of value about what your are trying to accomplish.

ASP.NET Menu with jQuery Superfish

Choosing the right type of menu for a website is not easy at all. The ASP.NET Menu Control is definitely NOT a good starting point due to the horrendous markup it renders, nor is it good for SEO because of the Markup/Content ratio, neither can it be easily styled.

Response.Redirect slow


I'm in the middle of migrating servers and on the new server Response.Redirect is extremely slow. It takes around 20 seconds for the browser to get the redirect. This is something that was quick on the existing server. It's an ASP.NET 2.0 application, both servers are running IIS6.

Additionally, if I "manually" do the redirect, it's fast. For example:

Existing way:


takes around 20 seconds on the new server

New way:

Response.Status = "302 Moved Temporarily";
Response.AddHeader("Location", url);

is fast on the new server.

Any ideas why Response.Redirect would be so slow on the new server?

Problem making Role based Menu in MVC application



 I want to make Rolebase menu in MVC such that if user doesnot have permission for some action then that Action name shouldnot be shown in the Menu.

 I have used the code in the url(http://forums.asp.net/t/1566328.aspx) in my MVC application.My application is a Discussion Forum(in MVC) same functionality as in this forum forums.asp.net

 I have used Controllers for post, thread etc.In each controller there are some actions that are using [Authorize(Roles)] attribute

 but this coding does not count  those Actions in Controllers having Authorize attribute according to the url http://forums.asp.net/t/1566328.aspx 

 In the code, Authorize attribute is applied to Controller class, but my requirement is of Applying Authorize attribute to some actions in controller so that some are available for all users and  some links are available rolewise.Now what is the solution for that?



Looking for guidance: wanting to work with AJAX architecture



I'm starting a small website that will be backed by a database, and will allow a small number of users to authenticate and select an entry in the database, and then view (and optionally update) a corresponding entry (think master-detail).

I have some flexibility in how I'll do this, but I'd really like to incorperate some newer AJAX style coding, eliminating some page postbacks. I think this is a great opportunity to learn the concepts well.

I'll probably go with an ASP.NET 4.0 site. From what I've seen there are MANY ways to go about this:

-WCF Data Services to expose the data, and consume in ASP.NET

-Page methods to expose the data, separate method to update the data

-I'd rather avoid the UpdatePanel because I'm really looking for a full hands-on approach, with learning client side scripting being an objective as well.

Beyond that, it seems that one can use jQuery to build clientside templates, but also one can use the ASP.NET AJAX template engine (in ASP.NET 4.0 I believe).

A concern I have: users should only be able to work with the data exposed via these endpoints if they are logged into the website. Hopefully I can somehow reuse the ASP.NET forms authentication cookie for this purpose. 

Well, I hope I've posted enough to a

DropDownExtender - menu disapears


Hello all, first ever post here :)

Hope you guys can help me out, this drives me crazy...

So I got 2 updatepanels on my page. In one there is a Timer which updates for example a label. In the other one there is a dropdownextender. Everytime the timer ticks while the dropdown menu is displayed the menu disapears. I attached the sample code below....any insights on this? And yes, the dropdown and the label need to be in two seperate updatepanels....

Many thanks

VS 2010 Pro is slow



I was wondering if anybody else is finding VS 2010 extremely slow loading a solution - and it pretty much renders the rest of the machine useless until loaded. Everything is slowed to a halt.

I upgraded from VS 2005 - now I think I made a terrible mistake. I cannot afford to try and load 2 solutions simultaneously.

The machine is a Core2 Duo E8400, 3GB of RAM, WinXP SP3. Max I can go to is 4GB. Would upgrading to a 64-bit OS really be worth it (actually only to get 8GB of RAM)?

I'm hoping someone else has found a solution to this particular problem.



Can't get an Icon to show for Desktop shortcut and Program Menu



I've created a SetupWizard, but can't get it to show the Icon for the shortcut on desktop and program menu. The installation goes fine without any errors, the only problem is the icon.

I've made a shortcut of my exe file in the Application Folder and dragged the shortcut to the Desktop folder, then on the shortcut properties, I assigned it an icon picture located in Application Folder.

Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.


Category attribute of user control property does not work correctly in categories tab.



I have a User Control (ascx) and a property which a want to display in my categories tab in Visual Studio in the category named "Styles".

[Category("Styles"), DefaultValue(""), Description("The value for formating something.")]
public String MyFormatProperty
set { /* the code for set */; }
get { /* the code for get */; }

And here is the problem: Actually I do not need a get, because I only have to set the property (write only property). But when I omit the get, the property is displayed in the "Misc" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio. Only when I code the get as well, then the property is displayed correctly in the "Styles" category in the categories tab in Visual Studio.

Does anybody know why? How can I display the category correctly only with set?

Thanks, S.

Changing classic asp.net Menu to CssAdapterMenu


Hello Friends,

                     I have been using asp.net menu control that is programmatically binded at runtime and has n child node levels. Now i want to use CssAdapterMenu instead because the menu control contains more than 1000 menuItems(in the near future it can also be more 2000 menuItems) and has very slow response in IE 6 or IE 7.

                    Now my question is how should i change the classic asp.net menu to CssAdapterMenu. What should be the steps? Any samples example of n child node levels would be helpful
