Copying the whole layout with controls from one aspx page to another page in runtime

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 17, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hello all Here is my issue. I've a page main.aspx. This page has a button 'Settings'. When it is clicked, I load another aspx page settigns.aspx in a popup. Now in the settings.aspx i allow the users to add controls dynamically. For example the user can create 5 textboxes. When he saves it there, I need to get that controls to main.aspx. So i need to move all the controls from one page to another page. I'm not able to think of a solution with user controls. Any ideas on this?

How to get an aspx page to call ApplyStyleSheetSkin on its controls



I have a few custom composite controls that set their cssclass only when calling their ApplyStyleSheetSkin method.

I worked around this by creating a function which recursively walks through all controls on a page and calls that method, but I was wondering if there isn't a way to do this automatically? (i.e. how do I tell the aspx page to call the ApplyStyleSheetSkin method inside the controls?

Thanks in advance,

CreatePage.aspx cannot display page layout preview image


I am using a custom site template and functions fine, except that when I get to the CreatePage.aspx page, the preview image is not displayed. When I looked up the properties on that image, it was looking for the image in a location other than the place where it should.

For eg: Instead of looking for it at /_catalogs/masterpage/en-US/Preview%20Images/ArticleBodyOnly.png  it looks for it at xxx/test/_catalogs/masterpage/en-US/Preview%20Images/ArticleBodyOnly.png where xxx was an external consultant that worked on this site before me and I am new to sharepoint. The only scenario when this doesnt happen is for the DefaultPageLayout.png file.

This problem seems to repeat everytime I use this site template. When I open up the sites with these templates on Sharepoint Designer, I can see all the preview images over there. For some reason, the CreatePage.aspx is not looking for the images in this location and looks for it at another location.

I am really stuck with this issue, can someone please help me understand why this is happening or help me resolve this?


Adding the Content Editor Web Part to a SharePoint Layout .aspx page



we've created a layout page that contains the Rich Text Editor web part. But the client requires a web part that allows the embedding of audio/video files. The Rich Text Editor strips out the objects when we try to embed them.

I've used the Content Editor Web Part to add audio and video files (by manually adding the web part to the page), but I can't find the definition for that web part to include it in the layout page so that the client doesn't need to manually add the web part themselves to every page that requires it. (Which could be many pages.)

Any help would be appreciated.



Launch CMD File From ASPX Page


My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.


We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.


Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?

The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.

Visual Studio closes itself by opening aspx-Page designer after Windows Update


Hey Guys,

I've a problem with my Visual Studio.

On the 13th of August 2010 i installed a Windows update on my vista sp2 pc. For this date my Visual Studio 2008 sp 1 always has closed itself by opening an aspx-page in designer view. There is no error message just closing the window. I restored a backup of my windows from the time before updating it and it helped, i could open aspx pages in the design view till the update has been installed again automatically after rebooting the pc. I can't disable windows updates, cause it's my pc at work and safety is very important. I hope you could help me out of this disaster.

Panels messing up page layout



On a few different pages in my web app I have a scrollable panel that contains a gridview. When there is nothing in the panel display as I want it to, however when the grid view is populated with data it stretches the panel across the page which looks awful, it means the panel is partially stretched across the window but is still scrollable

Anyone know why this might be happening?



Flash player doesn't send cookies while requesting an aspx page



 I'm developing a web-site, that uses SWFUpload for multiple files upload to the server. Page, that uploades files, is accessable only to registered user. Authentication is done via web-forms (authentication mode="Forms" in Web.config). Flash uploades files to special web page - upload.aspx. In IE everything works great, but Flash player in non-IE browser (in Firefox, for example) does not send any cookies to upload.aspx. Because of it no sesion and no authentication information is available in this page.

 I can pass all the information, necessary for uploading, in GET-parameters, which upload.aspx recieve. But this is a serious security hole and I don't want to expose session information. I can pass session identifier in GET-request. But the question is the following: how can I restore session information from the session identifier? How can I make HttpContext.Current.User point to currently logged in user in this case?

Any help will be appreciated.

User Control not accessing the value of the properties send to it from the aspx page.


I have a dynamic accordion on a page. Set its datasource to an object of paged data source.The user control is in the accordions content template. When i was writing code the properties were showing but after giving the values of databases as


<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname1")%>' Property2='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname2")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>


but the values shows null, these properties are shown as textboxes text property by user control.

MoreOver when I checked the values of database Items.So i made a textbox instead of usercontrol here as

<asp:TextBox ID="txtTest" runat="server" Text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Columname1")%>'></asp:TextBox>

It is showing the correct value. And if i pass the value directly it is also showing correctly like

<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1="XYZ")%>' Property2="ABC")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>

. where I am wrong

the problem is eval is not passing the value to usercont
