IsAjaxRequest method doesn't work with some IE requests

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hey, I've just discovered that the X-Requested-With header in IE is always "XMLHttpRequest, XMLHttpRequest" instead of just "XMLHttpRequest". I found the reason in MicrosoftMvcAjax.debug.js at line 280 (MVC 2.0). Seems there is no need to add this header again as it is already done in Microsoft AJAX Library. And because of this IsAjaxRequest extension method doesn't work anymore if there is no X-Requested-With param in the request body. And this make X-Requested-With header useless in IE. In Firefox there is no problem as it doesn't append but replace the existing header value. Not tested in other browsers. Can someone from the MVC team comment on this? Thanks in advance.

web service method doesn't work


DEar all,


I have developed a asp.net website in visual studio 2008, I have Sharepoint server 2010 installed n configured.

In my asp.net website I have a function which will create a folder in the sharepoint site.

My problem is when I have published the website, the folder is not being created.

But when i am debugging it, the folder is being created in the sharepoint site.

My Code is as follows:



String CreateFolder(string sfolderName)



When I use 'publish', site doesn't work when i post data


Arrgghh, I am so tired of dealing with stuff like this

I've got a project, when I put up on another server I point two sites in IIS6 to it

i have

http://www.main.com  pointing to the folder the files are in


http://www.anotherofoursites.com/main pointing to that same folder in it's own "Virtual Application" or whatever IIS calls it when you put a folder into it's own 

If I just "Build" and push all the files up.. both work without issue and as expected...  but when I use "Publish" to precompile, the site works until I post, and then i get nailed with:

Server Error in '/' Application.
Configuration Error
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Ajax Asyncfileupload doesn't work as soon as I put it in a control


Hi guys,

I can't get my <ajax:asyncfileupload> working and I don't see why...

When outside any panel or table it is working well, but as soon as I put it in a <asp:panel> or table I get a strange error which seems to be on client-side but I don't understand what's happen here. Here is the code and code-behind and Javascript.

Here's the error: 


Here's my front-code:

<%@ Page Language="VB" MasterPageFile="~/masterpages/mpSqueletton.master" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="frmAdmGestSocietes.aspx.vb" Inherits="adm_frmAdmGestSocietes" title="Untitled Page" %>
<%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="ajax" %>

<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="cphHead" Runat="Server">
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">    
        function uploadError(sender,args)
          document.getElementById("<%= lblStatus.ClientID %>").innerText = args.get_fileName(), "<span style='color:red;'>" + args.get_errorMes

AsyncPostBackTrigger doesn't work on server..


 I am new to asp.net and ajax. I have a problem while using update panel.
I have a tabcontainer with 3-4 tab panels. Inside one tab panel there is a cancel button. What i want to do is to when i hit cancel button in code behind i change active tab index to 0 so that tabcontainer shows first tab panel. I have update panel around tab container. This works at my localhost. But on server its behavior is very random. Sometimes it works sometime it doesn't. Unfortunately I am not able to debug it also. I don't know how to debug code on server. As on localhost it works correctly so I am kind of stuck. 

Asyncfileupload doesn't work in webusercontrol

I'm having a problem with a Webusercontrol that has an asyncfileupload control. My websusercontrol is being loaded in a placeholder control that's wrapped by an updatepanel.Due to asyncpostback, I have to load and clear the placeholder's controls. The webusercontrol works flawlessly, except the asyncfileupload, which doesn't want to upload at all. I can assure that the code is without error, because I used to have the webusercontrol running as an *.aspx site. I guess that the problem is the fact that the control has to be cleared and reloaded with every asyncpostback ?

logoff doesn't work through windows service

Dear Friends, I am facing this problem on Windows 2003 and 2008 Server. On XP it works fine. I have written and Windows Service that takes receives the command and executes tasks such as Logoff, Shutdown, etc. All the commands except Logoff works fine. I tried following ways to perform the Logoff. However it didnt work. Try 1:                 Process.Start("shutdown", "-l"); Try 2:     [DllImport("user32.dll")]     public static extern int ExitWindowsEx(int uFlags, int dwReason);     ExitWindowsEx(0, 0); Try 3:     Process _currentProcess = new Process();                _currentProcess.StartInfo = new ProcessStartInfo("shutdown", "-l -f");                _currentProcess.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;                 _currentProcess.Start(); Try 4:     Process.Start("logoff.exe", null); If I write a simple C# based applicatin (not Service) it works fine for all the tries that I have made. I am facing this problem only when I put this code

doesn't work (using IIS 6.0)

HiI'm getting errors with an application on our test web server, which has .NET 4.0 installed, when I input HTML into a form.  I get the usual errors of:A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the clientThis is being caused by the change in .NET 4.0 that disables switching off automatic validation for HTML input.I can fix this on my local development machine by adding the <httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" /> directive to the <system.web> section of my root web.config, and .NET then honours the <pages validateRequest="false" /> directive that's in the same root web.config.  Strangely, I needed to restart IIS on my local machine (which is version 5.1) for this change to work.When I deploy the root web.config to our test server however, I'm still getting the validation errors.  I've tried using run > iisreset, stopping and starting IIS (which is version 6.0 on the test server), and I've even restarted the server to fully clear out .NET.  My application is definitely picking up the new root web.config (I've tested this), however the <httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" /> directive seems to just be ignored.My application is configured as a  .NET 4.0 application on both my local machine and on the test server.  I've tried rebuilding the a

Workflow doesn't work anymore after renaming list

Hi All, I have created a list with the name "helpdesk test". After testing this list i renamed the list to "helpdesk". I did the rename by the list settings.  To this list i attached some workflows, with Sharepoint designer,  that have to start when a new item is created. All worked fine but after the rename the workflows don't work anymore. When i start the workflows manually from the list all works fine. Is there a way to rename a list and let the workflows work as before? Thanks in advance. Laurens.      

Sys.Data.DataContext.saveChanges method doesn't send update to server after DataServiceException ex

Hello,I have a page with a simple form that updates a single record in a table in my database.The database is accessed via WCF Data Services. To load and save data from/to the server, I usethe Sys.Data.DataContext object provided by the ASP.NET AJAX library. When the "save" button on theform is clicked, I use the saveChanges method of the Sys.Data.DataContext object to send all changes to the server.Also, at the server side, I use an interceptor that checks the "Price" fields of the record, and throws a DataServiceException exception when the contents of the field is a negative number.Both the JavaScript and the interceptor (in C#) are copied below.Here is the interesting thing:When I enter a negative price in the form, the interceptor throws the exception and my form shows an error message. Good.However, if I then make one of the other fields in the form a bit shorter (for example from "abcd" to "abc"),the saveChanges method doesn't send the data to the server. But it does call the success callback that I passed in to saveChanges, creating the impressionthat the data has been saved. This happens while the Price field is still negative. I used Fiddler to make sure thatno message is sent to the server. Also, the interceptor doesn't get executed.The weird thing is that if I make one of the fields a bit longer instead (for example &q

Form in iframe doesn't work.

WCF Method that receive GET AND SOAP Requests

i created a WCf service with a method that can receive GET requests using WebGET attribute, i want the same method to receive Soap calls too (that when the programmer does a Service reference to the WCF, he will be able to call the method). my interface is:   [ServiceContract] public interface IService1 { [OperationContract] [WebGet(UriTemplate = "GetData?value={value}")] string GetData(int value); }   My configuration is: <configuration> <system.web> <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0" /> </system.web> <system.serviceModel> <behaviors> <serviceBehaviors> <behavior name="MyServiceBehavior"> <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true"/> <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true"/> </behavior> </serviceBehaviors> <endpointBehaviors> <behavior name="WebBehavior"> <webHttp /> </behavior> </endpointBehaviors> </behaviors> <services> <service name="WCFTestingGetService.Service1" behaviorConfiguration="MyServiceBehavior" > <endpoint address="" binding="webHttpBinding" contract="WCFTestingGetService.IService1" behaviorConfiguration="Web

Following instructions to bootstrap .NET 3.5 SP1 doesn't work

I'm trying to use msbuild GenerateBootstrapper task to distribute a .net application with the framework, without the need of internet connection to install it.  I've found many posts that all lead to the same instructions in here: Enable Samesite for the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 bootstrapper After following the instructions, I still cannot generate the bootstrapper. The more obvious issue I can see is that extracting the files from dotNetFx35.exe does not extract the same list of files and folders than shown on the readme file (for example TOOLS folders are not there). What am I doing wrong? Am I following old instructions?

WCF Basic Http Binding - Two server requests per method call

We have a service that uses BasicHttpBinding/Transport Security/Windows Authentication and is hosted in IIS. I have created a unit-test application in VSTS and whenever we test a WCF method, Fiddler records two calls. 1st call - No authorization token is sent. The WCF service returns a 401 error - Unauthorized: Access is denied. Http headers as sent in the request given below. POST http://localhost/AccountScreen.svc HTTP/1.1 Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8 SOAPAction: "IAccountScreen/RetrieveAccountDetails" Host: localhost Content-Length: 243 Expect: 100-continue Connection: Keep-Alive 2nd call - Authorization token is sent and the WCF service returns the expected response. POST http://localhost/AccountScreen.svc HTTP/1.1 Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8 SOAPAction: "IAccountScreen/RetrieveAccountDetails" Authorization: Negotiate Host: localhost Content-Length: 243 Expect: 100-continue I am not able to figure out why there are two calls made to the server in the first place and what is the significance of the first call. Any thoughts?

Type icon doesn't work on SP 2010

Hi guys, as reported in other threads, Type icon in SP 2010 document library doesn't work. I mean that in MOSS 2007 doc library the Type column displays the icon of the document linked to the document itself, so that you can click on it to open the document. Otherwise, in MOSS 2010, the icon doesn't contain any link at all. This is true only for documents, while it works for folders. This behaviour is in MOSS 2010 RTM. Does anyone know any info about this problem? Thank you in advance.
