POST from html form viewstate problem

<p> Hi all, I have a website where people need to pay for a specific download (.pdf file). After they payed they get the download(A). My payment-provider can do a HTML-Postback to the site i want, for each succesfull payment. So the idea is that if someone payed, they do a postback to my server with a couple of parameters, so i can know that that specific email address has payed, and they get the download. I tested localy with a .html file on my desktop to postback a set of parameters to my local asp.net website. But in ONLY works if i include the __VIEWSTATE in my html file. And i cant get rid of the viewstate in my HTML of the aspx page. >test.html: <html><head></head><body> <h1>Dit is een test</h1> <form id="form1" action="http://localhost:25659/WebForm1.aspx" method="POST"> <input id="Button1" type="submit" value="submit!"/> 'IT ONLY WORKS IF I INCLUDE THE NEXT LINE: <input type="hidden" name="__VIEWSTATE" id="__VIEWSTATE" value="/wEPDwUKMjA0OTM4MTAwNGRk" /> </form></body></html> Has anybody an idea to acomplish my goal? Maybe i can get some info about the postback in my global.asax? or create a HttpHandler for .html files? Anyone?   Thanks in advance, Vincent   </p>

Handling Form Controls After Ajax.BeginForm Submission


Currently I have a comments section integrated into a blog I am writing. 
The comments are Ajaxified, when you post a comment the comment list auto updates with the comment you just added. 
Everything is working great but I would like to do some cleanup after a comment is successfully posted. 
Specifically I would like to disable the textarea and submit button which I would have no issues doing through javascript by using the AjaxOption OnComplete parameter.
To avoid double posts or just plain abuse. I know I will need other safegaurds as well but this is my first step.
The thing is Ajax.BeginForm does not give the form an id or name so I can not reference the form in javascript.
Is there a workaround here? Can I disable these form controls from the controller? 

Here is my code.

<% using (Ajax.BeginForm("Details", new AjaxOptions {UpdateTargetId="divCommentList"})) {%>
    <p>Add Your Own Comment</p>
    <p><%= Html.TextArea("Comment1")%></p>
    <input type="submit" value="Add Comment" id="submit" />
    <% } %>

How to convert from HTML in aspx form?


This code works only in HTML format. This means that I can not select standard components:
"Inserting an ASP.NET control will convert the HTML form in the page to an ASP.NET form and remove its current properties. Do you want to insert the ASP.NET control?"

When converted following code does not work anymore.
I'd like that code works in ASP.NET mode.

ASP.NET, HTML, JavaScript Snippet Support (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

This post covers another useful improvement in VS 2010 - HTML/ASP.NET/JavaScript snippet support. Snippets allow you to be more productive within source view by allowing you to create chunks of code and markup that you can quickly apply and use in your application with a minimum of character typing.

Visual Studio has supported the concept of "snippets" for VB and C# in previous releases - but not for HTML, ASP.NET markup and JavaScript. With VS 2010 we now support snippets for these content types as well.

Maintain HTML Radio Button Selection Inside GridView After Postback

JQuery Validate plugin to validate a ASP.NET Form

The first time I used the JQuery Validate plugin, it did not work at all, see JQuery Validate odd behaviour with the ASP.NET Script Manager for reason, but perseverance and stubbornness prevailed and I finally created my first JQuery validated ASP.NET Forms contact form.

Rendering ASP.NET Script References into the Html Header

One thing that I've come to appreciate in control development in ASP.NET that use JavaScript is the ability to have more control over script and script include placement than ASP.NET provides natively. Specifically in ASP.NET you can use either the ClientScriptManager or ScriptManager to embed scripts and script references into pages via code.

How to use getElementById to get the elements in a form

There are many ways of accessing form elements, of which the easiest is by using the cross-browser W3C DOM document.getElementById method. Before we learn more about this method, it would be useful to know something about the Document Object Model (DOM), the concept of HTML nodes or elements, and the concept of containers.

Each time you load an HTML page, the web browser generates an internal representation of the page in the form of an inverted tree structure. Let us look at a simple form. We will use this form later to demonstrate the use of the getElementById method.
