Routing breaks links

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Using: .Net 4.0/C#/VS 2010 Express/ASP.NetImplemented the Routing as described here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc668202(VS.90).aspx.Here is my application: I have created a blog, the main page of which is called "default.aspx."  Default.aspx contains a series of links to posts, each with a unique link.  To get to an individual post, I utilize routing, using this URL format: http://localhost:55074/WebSite3/2010/9/15/this-is-a-test-post~4.  i parse the URL to get the year/month/date of the post, as well as the post title.This works fine.The problem occurs when I go to an individual post.All the links are broken.For example, I have a link at the top that takes you back to default.aspx (in the html, I have the link set up like this: <a href="default.aspx">Home</a>), except that now the link takes me here:  http://localhost:55074/WebSite3/2010/9/15/default.aspx.Obviously, there are no 2010, 9, or 15 subdirectories, and default.aspx is in the root directory.Also, when I load an individual post, Request.Url.AbsolutePath returns this: /WebSite3/2010/9/15/this-is-a-test-post~4.thanks.

Routing for Web Forms in ASP.NET 4.0

posted a prototype demonstrating how one could use Routing within Web Forms. This is something you can do today with ASP.NET 3.5 SP1, because of the work we did to separate Routing from ASP.NET MVC. I would have liked to include Web Form Routing as part of the Routing feature when we were working on SP1, but we didn't have the time to do so in a robust manner before SP1 was locked down.

What's new in ASP.NET 4.0 - Part II - Routing in Webforms

This post covers one such feature which is Routing in Webforms. Although Routing was available even in .NET 3.5 SP1, (check this excellent post by Phil Haack on implementing Routing in ASP.NET 3.5 with .NET 3.5 SP1), it was kind of less known. Also the plumbing work was too much for getting it implemented.

ASP.NET 4.0: WebForm Routing (quick n dirty version)

One of the things we're adding in ASP.NET 4.0 is built-in support for using Routing together with WebForms. Now, I'm totally aware that this is possible to do already and that a number of people have posted ways of doing this with the Web Routing feature which shipped with ASP.NET 3.5 SP1. We're just adding some features to make it easier to do

Xml Links

Xml Links:-
1)Fill data in GridView using XML:-

2)Binding to XML Data in ASP.NET 2.0:-

3)Binding xml data to gridview Template field:-

4)Binding xml to dropdownlist:-

5)Programming XML with C# & Connecting Data and XML via ADO .NET

6)DataSet.ReadXmlSchema() Method

7)Using XML with DataSets:-

8)ow To Read XML Data into a DataSet by Using Visual C# .NET

9)MSDN(XML imp links)

10)Xml Classes

Problem upgrading to MVC3 - System.Web.Routing



I'm trying to upgrade to .NET 4 and MVC 3.

When trying to compile my project, I get the error:

Error 1 The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?) C:\Users\spencer\Desktop\weblauncher\Common\MVCConfig.cs 4 18 Common

The type or namespace name 'Routing' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

I do have the System.Web.Routing in my references for the project.

BUT - when I try to view System.Web.Routing in the OBJECT BROWSER, nothing is inside!  The System.Web.Routing namespace is not in there - the entire thing is empty!  Could it that the dll is corrupted?  I tried to reinstall the .NET 4 and MVC 3 stuff, but its still empty!

The dll is coming from here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\.NETFramework\v4.0\System.Web.Routing.dll

and the runti

I need help with imagebutton links


I have imagebuttons as links and i added the attributes for mousedown, up and out. That works fine.  I cant seem to figure out how that the imagebutton itself, when pushed, stays down and returns to normal when the user clicks another link....

what I was thinking of doing is calling a method on the onclick event of the button and letting it check whether there is another button pushed down then to send the found link button to its orginal state.

I figured doing the call and checking of the buttons would be long winded with the method, so there must be an easier way to do this ?




Routing in dynamic data applications


Im using ASP.Net 4. I tried to modified the code according to following video tutorial. http://www.asp.net/aspnet-in-net-35-sp1/videos/how-to-enable-table-specific-routing-in-dynamic-data-applications

But Product page directs only to ListDetails.aspx page.

This is my code :

<%@ Application Language="C#" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.Routing" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.DynamicData" %>

<script RunAt="server">
    private static MetaModel s_defaultModel = new MetaModel();
    public static MetaModel DefaultModel {
        get {
            return s_defaultModel;

    public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes) {

        DefaultModel.RegisterContext(typeof(NorthwindDataContext), new ContextConfiguration() { ScaffoldAllTables = true });


URL Routing and Existing HttpHandler problems


Hello everyone,

I have a problem:

I am currently using 2 features: 

1. HttpHandler

Registering the path="res.aspx" verb="*"

2. URL Routing:

Registering with this pattern: "Company/Edit/{*companyId}","~/CompanyEdit.aspx"

In my CompanyEdit.aspx page, I used httphandler res.aspx to generate some images at client.

  • res.aspx?img=1
  • res.aspx?img=3

Now the problem is here, the page is load success with companyId = "12345", but when the images was loaded at client, it loaded the CompanyEdit.aspx again and show error with wrong id.  

I have debug and find the problem that because when image's urls were generated to client with url=res.aspx?img=1, url=res.aspx?img=3, the asp.net will understand that they are Company/Edit/res.aspx?img=1, Company/Edit/res.aspx?img=3 when it maps with URL Routing pattern.

=> So the CompanyEdit.aspx was load again with wrong id (id now is "res.aspx"). 

So, do you have any ideas to solve this problem, or other design.

Thanks, and best regard

Unable to move Wiki pages with Bracketed ([[, ]]) Links


I'm using Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server 2007 (pre-SP1) to host a Wiki, and it's been a learning process as I've been going along.  In this process, I keep finding better places to keep Wiki Pages and Wiki Libraries, so I move things around to find the best fit.  I've run into a strange problem while moving my collection of ~100 Wiki pages, and I'm curious to see if others have it to.  The problem is, I cannot move or copy Wiki Pages that contain links to other Wiki pages using the bracket method (of writing a link as [[other page]]).

Here's how I reach the problem:

-Create 2 Wiki Pages Libraries,  I called mine Wiki PagesA and Wiki PagesB
-I go into my Wiki PagesA library and create a new Wiki page.
-I call it "linktohome" and enter only a single line in the body, "[[home]]"
-I can open it up and it works just fine and the link redirects me to the Home page in the local Wiki PagesA library so it's all good.
-Next in my main Site Collection that's hosting these libraries, I'll pull down Site Actions and go into Manage Content and Structure.
-I can browse into Wiki PagesA and the linktohome document appears
-But, when I try to copy (or move) linktohome to Wiki PagesB library I get an error that says:

Unable to copy/move wiki pages with links to other wiki pages

When I try to copy or move wiki pages from one 'Wiki library A' to 'Wiki library B' through 'content and structure', I get an error for the pages which contain links to other wiki pages, does sameone has a clue how to fix this:

Hyper-links from Outlook


I looked the other topic and it doesn't answer my problem.

When I receive an email with hyper-links in them they seldom connect and only if the full link is available can I copy & paste it into my browser. Soemtimes there is just a comment with the link behind it and it's impossible to pick up the full link details. A box appears saying that Outlook is blocking this action and I should refer to my administrator.

I am the administrator and have too little knolwedge to know what I would need to do do to create the bock so please help to sort out this annoying and time consuming issue.

Many thanks...


Published site - wrong links



we have published our sharepoint site outside domain.

Unfortunately big problems with links in document library appeared.

The url for outside users is "it.company.cz", the internal url is "sp001:55680".

When I open the page and select Shared Documents, the site is still it.company.cz. But when select any folder in document library the site url changes to sp001:55680.

Strange is that the mouseover url is correct but when I click it, it changes to internal url.


Mouseover url: http://it.compay.cz/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=%2fShared%20Documents%2fProjects&FolderCTID=&View=%7bBEBFF1D2%2d5910%2d4A36%2dB049%2d971F95E752E7%7d

After click url: http://sp001:55680/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=%2fShared%20Documents%2fProjects&FolderCTID=&View=%7bBEBFF1D2%2d5910%2d4A36%2dB049%2d971F95E752E7%7d
