My master page won't load when using authorization in web.config

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I don't have any sub catalogs for the .aspx files and this is my web.config file:<system.web> <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0" /> <authentication mode="Forms"> <forms loginUrl="Login.aspx" name="sqlAuthCookie" timeout="60" /> </authentication> <authorization> <deny users="?" /> <allow users="*" /> </authorization> </system.web> It's as if the Login.aspx won't grab the Site.Master if I add this authorization.I get directed to the Login.aspx if I try to enter any other page, but without seeing the master page.Is this enough info to solve this or do you need to know how the other pages looks like? Let me know!Thanks in advance.Niklas

Mal formed web.config...Can't load home page


Why is it that I can run my website in vs 2005 and bs 2008 but it won't work on this live hosting site? I'm told there is a invalid character right where my connection string begins.

This is madness. I have never had this issue before. I looked at my web.config in internet exploer. IE has an add on to validate xml.  It gives the error message:

The XML page cannot be displayed

Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

Unique content within master page based on conditions met


 Hi all-

I would like to present users with unique content based on certain conditions being met as they land on the home page (default.aspx).  The condition logic will be in the VB code behind Page Load event. The content will go in a content placeholder as specificed from the master page. 

However, the content change wouldn't be something small (ie making a panel or label visible or not) but rather it will be different HTML,  Divs and databound gridview content.  The HTML content will be stored in the database.

Can someone point me in the right direction for best practices on how to accomplish this?


Passing Linq Statement between master and content page


I usually work with windows forms, and am just starting to work with ASP.Net, so appologies if this is a dumb question!

I have a master page which has a search button on it. The results of this are built up using a Linq statement and if there are any results, I want to display the results in a contents page.

On the masterpage, I have the following code:

Private _res

    Public Overridable ReadOnly Property SearchRes()
            Return _res
        End Get
    End Property

 Private Sub DoSearch()
   'some code to get a linq result

    If res.Any Then
            _res = res
            Server.Transfer("SearchResults.aspx", True)
            'no results
            LabelNoRes.Visible = True
        End If
 End Sub

On the SearchResults.aspx page I have this code.

Dim m As pxSite = CType(Page.Master, MasterPage)
        If m.SearchRes IsNot Nothing Then
            Label1.Text = "Results found = " & m.SearchRes.Count
        End If

m.searchRes is always nothing. 

What am I doing wrong here?

Re-positioning an HTML container with javascript onresize with a Master page.


I have an HTML <div> container that I float to the right of a gridview.  When the browser window is maximized, it looks fine.  When minimized, the gridview positions below the floating container and most of the data is pushed off the bottom of the browser - you have to scroll down to see it.

If I position the floating container above the gridview it looks fine in a minimized window, but looks real bad when maximized.

What I want to do is use a javascript: onresize event to re-position the floating container up or down depending on the window.inner.width AND do it with a Master/Content page structure AND do it for only the one page where needed.

I can capture the onresize event and display the window dimensions but haven't figured-out how to do it with a Content page that still uses the Master page.  I think I'm having a very "thick" week...

Not getting multiple composite controls on master page

When I try to use these controls using the registered tag prefix I am getting only one control along with the tagprefix .

How to get all the composite controls present in the registered assembly?

Master Pages: Master Your Site Design with Visual Inheritance and Page Templates


Master pages in ASP.NET 2.0 solve a problem many Web developers have been solving on their own with a variety of techniques for years - providing a single master template for an entire site. This article covers the details of master pages, discussing their usage and implementation and how they are a natural evolution of custom techniques developers are using today.

Dynamic Checkboxlist exception when adding to Panel when using Master Page


In essence, I am creating Dynamic Checkboxlist controls and adding them to a Panel.  It works well when I do not have a Master Page configure to this webpage. Once I have a masterpage congifured.. I get a "Object Reference not set to instance of object" error on the Panel_Control.Controls.Add(Checkboxlistnew) line:

Is master page a best alternative for Frame Sets ??


My webpage has one banner with a logo, a vertical menu bar on the left side of the page and a footer . I have 5 other pages which should get loaded when the user select them from the menu bar. what my concern is actually the banner,  menu bar  and the footer should not change when the requested page loads. This definitely can be handled by sets. But I want to know whether there are any other alternatives for frame sets or could master page be helpful for this purpose ????? 

Any help would be appreciative .

How in web.config work in MVC



I would like to secure any URL below the http://MyServer/Admins and limit it to a specific role.

In webforms it was straight forward. I just put a child web.config in the /Admin/ folder and add <authorization>  <allow roles> tags to it.

How would be the equivalent technique in MVC?

Thank you,

Apply custom.master to "Site Settings" page?


I'm using a custom.master page, which is applied to almost all pages available to READ users.

However, I'd like to apply it to the Search, Site Settings, and View All Site Content pages.

I'm not sure where this would be applied.

Guidance much appreciated. Thanks!

Sharepoint 2007 - Wiki site - New Pages Not Inheriting Custom Master Page


I am working on a SP site (MOSS not WSS) which is heavily customised away from the OOTB layout. I need to create a Wiki site, which was going well - I've created a master page which displays the miniconsole (this was not visible with our customised layout), and made it the default master page for the site. This has been applied to the two standard pages that come with the Wiki site, however when a new page is created, it seems to inherit the default.master, rather than my custom master page - thus not showing the miniconsole.

When I have created a new page, I am able to use SharePoint Designer to attach my custom master page to it, which works perfectly, however this will not be a viable option going forward as end-users create their new wiki pages.

How can I get the new pages to inherit my master page when they are created?


Slow page load during a list query one time during the day


We have a monitoring tool set to check to see if the home pages for our 3 web apps load in under 60 seconds every 10 minutes.  All 3 web apps load in under 3 seconds on every 10 minute check except for one exception.  One check every day one of the web app's home page takes longer than 60 seconds to load.  This happens at 11:45PM when there is very little user usage on the environment.  The characteristics of this page are as follows: The only thing on the page is a list view web part which was added by the browser.  The page has not been customized with SPD or code at all.  The list that it pulls is a simple links list that has 281 items on it.  The view pulls all 281 items and displays them in sets of 100.  I cannot find any associated event in the server events and/or SharePoint ULS logs nor are there any daily sharepoint timer jobs running at that time.  Our full index happens at midnight with incremental happening hourly.  Our enviroment is 2 WFEs, 1 App/indexer and we have a separate SQL cluster backend.  

Could someone lead me possibly in the direction I should take next in my troubleshooting?   

Master Page manipulation


I've never worked with ASP.net before this project, and I am struggling a bit.  The website I am updating was written in ASP.net and C#, using a master page.  The master page is simple enough (header section, maincontent section, footer section, and a righcontent section).

What I need to happen...

On one page only, I would like the maincontent section to extend through the rightcontent section.  On this page I will not need the rightcontent section.

What is the easiest way to produce these results?  As of now, I have unused space on the page...and I can't figure out how to utilize the extra white space.  

Please advise.
