301 Redirect as a Action Result

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 09, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 I just wonder what you think it the "proper" way to perform a 301 Redirect from a Controller? I can NOT set up Routes in Global.asax because the URL comes from a database. My current approach is this:         [HandleError]        public ActionResult Resolve(string id)        {            if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(id))            {                return RedirectToAction("Index", "Home");            }            else            {                string url = DatabaseFunctions.RetreiveUrl(id);                if (url == null)                {                    return RedirectToActio

using an anonymous function for an action result


i can assign a simple anonymous function and it works, but i'm having trouble with a more complex one.

i am attempting to disable an image button after it is pressed.

any alternatives would be welcome, but i think this is the recommended

            <% var options = new AjaxOptions{ 
                  HttpMethod = "POST", 
                  UpdateTargetId = "lblAdded" + product.ProductId,
                   //OnComplete= "function() {alert('dddd');}",     <-- works
                  OnComplete = "function() {(document.getElementById('ibtn" + product.ProductId + "')).disabled='disabled';}" <-- does not work
            using (Ajax.BeginForm("AddToCart", new { id = product.ProductId }, options))
           { %>

 way to do it(?)

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?

pass value from textbox to action, formcollection best way here?

Thanks for any input

Automatically redirect to HTTPS and check if SSL is active



I've set in the web.config:

    <!-- User Authentication -->
    <authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="~/Page/View/Content/Login.aspx" timeout="2880" requireSSL="true" />

This works fine. If there is no ssl connection, the login form doesn't continue. But I would like to check if ssl is active (in codebehind) and, if it's possible, to automatically the user to the https page if he's currently on http. (I could do this job by manually redirect with page.response("https://url.../login.aspx"); but this is not really generic. For example if the webapp is moved to another domain it doesn't work anymore... I'm looking for something like: FormsAuthentication.RedirectWithSSL(); or so... :D)


Profile not being save after redirect.



I am trying to save values into a Profile on Page1, then redirect to Page2 and access those values.  However, after the page redirects the profile values are blank as if they were never saved.   When stepping through the code I can see that they are being save on Page 1.

I suppose I could use session variables to store the information but I don't understand why saving the profile doesn't work.

private void PayWithPayPal()
        ProfileCommon profile = this.Profile;

        if (Global.CurrentUserName.Length > 0)
            profile = this.Profile.GetProfile(Global.CurrentUserName);
        profile.FirstName = uxFirstNameShipping.Text;
        profile.LastName = uxLastNameBilling.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.AddressLineOne = uxAddressLineOneShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.AddressLineTwo = uxAddressLineTwoShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.City = uxCityShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.State = uxStateShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.ZipCode = uxPostalCodeShipping.Text;

        Response.Redirect("~/expresspayment.aspx", false);

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

Active Directory and .NET: paging the search result

Hi everybody!

I have a question about Active Directory in .NET
For my project I need to fetch results from Active Directory search page by page, because later I would need to bind it to the pageable DataGrid.

I tried to use .NET library DirectoryServices for that, but paging provided by this library is transparent to the user and is used only to increase the efficiency of searching, when results are too big. I.e. I cannot tell the DirectorySearcher to give me first page, then the next or previous page, it returns me all resulting pages in one bundle.

However, what I need is to explicitely get page after page directly from the AD searcher and to be able to go at least one page forward or backward.

The solution with copying all results to the DataBase and then do the paging is not accepeted by the clent, since it is too inefficient. And since it's a Web app, I cannot keep results in memory either.

I found some hints about COM Interface, but I could not find good and detailed examples or explanations. I aslo found this line of code: DirectoryServices.Interop.IDirectorySearch.ExecuteSearch(), but I don't know which libraries should i add to be able to compile this code.

If somebody could help me out with that problem, any suggestion is welcome, 'cause this issue is eating me alive :)

Thank you!

Redirect to a mobile page

Hi please can anyone help? I have a simple website with a home page called defaut.aspx, also I have a page with in this site called mobile.aspx. My question is, bearing in mind that I posses very little knowledge of VB, what code do I need to place in the default.aspx to detect what kind of device someone is using and redirect them to the mobile page (mobile.aspx)? This needs to be quite up-to-date preferably for blackberry and nokia devices?


Detecting PPC device on startup page to redirect?

I was wondering (since a search didn't find any posts) if there is a way for my startup page to detect what kind of device (PocketPC or web browser specifically) is loading the page and if it is a PocketPC, then redirect to the mobile pages? I will only be using PocketPC's exclusively as a mobile device.

Thanks for any suggestions!

MVC 3 Preview 1. Inject value in Action Filter



I was reading MVC3 Preview 1 release and I found this:

Dependency Injection at all levels - We opened up seams for applying the dependency injection when instantiating components of the framework. This allows developers to hook into the creation of models during model binding, action filters, etc.

Does that mean I can inject a value into an Action Filter?

This is a problem I have for a long time and it would be really useful.

How can I do this?

insufficient result space to convert uniqueidentifier value to char


Hi guys,

       Look, I've been trying to insert new values while I create a new user with a createuserwizard, but I've been getting this error over and over again:

"insufficient result space to convert uniqueidentifier value to char"

       The code that does it is the following:

  protected void CreateUserWizard1_CreatedUser(object sender, EventArgs e)
TextBox UserNameTextBox = (TextBox)CreateUserWizardStep2.ContentTemplateContainer.FindControl("UserName");

SqlDataSource DataSource = (SqlDataSource)CreateUserWizardStep2.ContentTemplateContainer.FindControl("InsertExtraInfo");

MembershipUser User = Membership.GetUser(UserNameTextBox.Text);

object UserGUID = User.ProviderUserKey;

DataSource.InsertParameters.Add("UserId", UserGUID.ToString());


      But when I debug, the error is thrown before reaching the previous code, so I suppose the error is in the SqlDataSource, look:

      <asp:SqlDataSource ID="InsertExtraInfo" runat="server" Co

Adding a cookie to a response.redirect vs. httpWebRequest


Hello, I will try to be as clear as I can be.  I'm sure this question has been asked but I can't find a suitable answer for this particular situation.

I need to be able to redirect the browser to a new 3rd party page while at the same time supplying a cookie required for some form of authentication on the 3rd party site.

I have managed to get this to work in the following manner:


'SessionID is predetermined by another HttpWebRequest/Response  

Dim sessionCookie As New Cookie("ezproxy", sessionID.Substring(1), "/", ".someother.site")

Dim CookieJar As New CookieContainer


rRequest = HttpWebRequest.Create("where I want to go")

rRequest.CookieContainer = CookieJar

rRequest.Method = "GET"


'Make the request and get the response.

rResponse = rRequest.GetResponse()


'Save cookie(s)

If (rResponse.Cookies.Count <> 0) Then
