Setting a session variable OR passing along information in Javascript

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hello, Form1 needs to send information to Form 2. Form2  opens in it's own window and is sized smaller. I need to send information to Form2 in order to set parameters in the query in Form2. At first I was just going to use an asp button control and load up some session variables, then I remembered that in order to have the next screen (Form2) open in its own window and be able to size it, I had to use an input type="Button" and use Javascript to open the new window like this:<script type="text/javascript"> function open_win() { window.open("/Accounts/Form2.aspx","_blank","toolbar=no, location=yes, directories=no, status=yes, menubar=no, scrollbars=yes, resizable=yes, copyhistory=yes, width=1000, height=500"); } </script> But by doing this, I don't know how to pass the information along I need for Form2. How can I pass variable information to Form2?  The data comes from two textboxes on Form1: txtStartDate and txtEndDate. Thank you.

Session Variable issues


Hello everyone,

I ran into an issud to day with the follwoing code.  The strPanelOrder session variable is false, however, once it goes into the next if statement and sets the strTrimOrder to True, it changes the strPanelOrder session varialbe to true as well.  Why is this and how to I stop that from happening?

If Session(strPanelOrder) Is "False" Then
                If (strItemNumber.Length() = 10) And (strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "FS" Or strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "FC" Or strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "DS" Or strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "DC") Then
                    Session(strPanelOrder) = "True"
                End If
End If
If Session(strTrimOrder) Is "False" Then
               If (strItemNumber.Substring(4, 1) = "T") And (strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) <> "AC") And (strItemNumber <> "Length") Then
                    Session(strTrimOrder) = "True"
                End If
End If


Thanks in advance for taking a look at this.

Textbox text populated by Session Variable wont update into SQL with new text


Hi everyone, I have what I think is a weird issue. I send text from one page to another via Session Variable. When page 2 loads, the text box has the session text set, but if the user changes the text and clicks the button, the SQL database is update with the original session text. If I remove the redirect from the page 2 button_Click method, then, the page refreshes with the textbox reverting to the session text and thr SQLDataSource has the session text added to it.

Why would the button click cause the textbox refresh with the text from the pageLoad before updating the data source?

Submtting Calendar items with variable date information via InfoPath 2007 form



I've seen several posts regarding submitting to a list using and InfoPath form which I am successfully able to do in limited form. (only passing a basic date value) My environment: MOSS 2007 Enterprise w/SP2, InfoPath 2007, SPD 2007.

I'm basically trying to recreate a calendar form with the same data elements (and some additional ones for a specific business requirement) as the standard calendar newform.aspx form. (start time, end time broken down by date, hour, minute and All day event)

I need the form users to be able to select the date and if it is not an All day event...be able to select the hours and minutes just like on the newform.aspx. (date picker control for date and drop downs for hour and minute selection)

On submit I then need to create the list item with the appropriate data passed via a workflow.

My Start Time has a validation rule to not allow dates prior to the current date (and it can't blank) The End Time has a validation rule to not allow dates prior to what is specified as the Start Time value. (Also can't be blank) When I attempt to include conditonal formatting to hide the hour and minute drop downs if 'All Day Event' is selected I get errors stating the fields can't be blank.

I also can't figure out how to pass the entire date/time values or the All Day Event to the list withou

BDC + Document Information Panel Javascript Error


I hope someone here can shed some light on this one...


We have a document library configured with a few content types and document information panels for those items. Also on this list we have a BDC column setup to pull client names from MS CRM. This works fine on the list itself, however, in Word 2007 - the picker does not show up in the DIP, so we cannot easily select clients without knowing the name (first issue).

Secondly, if we enter in a client name, or partial, we recieve the following error:

"There was an error in the validation code" - with the following details:
Document Information Panel cannot complete this action, because of an error
in the form's code.
The following error occurred:

Object required

Authorize.Net ARB passing variable


The following code is Authorize.Net Sample Code provided on their website for ARB clients/merchants to use as an example.  

If you notice, there is a sample (fake) credit card number, (4111111111111111), on Program.vb at "Private Sub PopulateSubscription(ByVal request As ARBCreateSubscriptionRequest).   NOTE: there are four "Sub PopulateSubscription" on Program.vb.  I am refering to the "ARBCreateSubscriptionRequest".

My objective - Pass a variable in a TextBox on Default.aspx to replace the credit card number (4111111111111111) in Sub-PopulateSubscription. 

I assume this can be done, but I am not experienced enough to make it work properly. 

Let me be clear....I don't expect anyone to show me how to code a program to communicate with Authorize.Net, because from reading other posts, many people don't want to offer any help regarding Authorize.Net because they haven't worked with it before.  What I am asking, is for someone to show me how to Pass a variable from a Form to a Class, in a way that will work given the Sample code I have provided. 

I hope someone can help.  Should be just a walk in the park for some of you.

Retaining Datagrid Results using Session Variable


I have a page with 2 dropdown menus and 2 datagrids.
The datagrids get populated by a database based on a dropdown menu slection.

This page links to another page which in turn links back to the original.
If the user leaves the first page and then returns back I want to keep the dropdown menus and datagrids populated.

I tried doing this with session variables but can't get the datagrids to stay populated ...

    protected void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (this.ddlName.SelectedIndex > 0)
            GridView1.Visible = true;
            GridView2.Visible = false;

            Session.Add("name", this.ddlName.SelectedValue);
            Session.Add("gridview1", GridView1.SelectedValue);

    protected void btnSubmit_Click1(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (this.ddlLocation.SelectedIndex > 0)
            GridView2.Visible = true;
            GridView1.Visible = false;

            Session.Add("location", this.ddlLocation.SelectedValue);
            Session.Add("gridview2", GridView2.SelectedValue);

    protected override void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


query string or session variable or neither for this scenario?

Hello,example scenario: user login has a list of associated 'accounts' it has access to... this list of accounts is stored in a database table, say tblAccountAccessControl, something like:login, accountID-----------------------userA, account123userA, account456userA, account798userB, accountABCuserB, accountDEFetc..this info is used throughout the web application and determines the 'domain' of information the particular login has access to. For example there are many other tables that have the 'accountID' field and whenever a page pulls data from the table it only pulls data that the currently logged in user should be allowed to see, based on that tblAccountAccessControl data.the security question:1) do I need to query the database every time I need to get this list of allowed accountID's? I was about to use a plain old query string to pass a particular accountID to another page but quickly caught myself as I realized that would be a major security flaw (the receiving page was going to use that accountID to grab info from the database, and there would be nothing preventing a user from simply typing in a url manually to get data from an accountID they are not supposed to be allowed to view). So I then thought I'll just store the list of accountID's in a session state variable so they will be carried with the user throughout the sessi

Session Variable use / IsolatedStorage

I am using ASP.NET 2.0I am little bit confuse about using of Session Variable. I have a three page web application. When a user login, after verification of user credentials I get user ID from DB and store this ID in a session variable.Session("USERID") = 56by using this ID I can get 20 different values from database as User Full name, user date of birth, user location, user date of joining, User Commission rate  etc. I need some of these values in Page 1, some in page 2 and some values needed in Page 3My question is that what is the best method !01. After successfully login and getting the User ID, I take all these 20 values from Data Base and store these values in an ArrayList and store this ArrayList in a seesion and whenever I need to use any value I take these values from ArrayList which is save in Session variable.02. I only save the user ID in session variable and whenever needed any user preference data, by using this ID I run the sql query and get the data and use this.03. Can I take some benefit by using the IsolatedStorage for this purpose.

HTTPContext.Current.Session losing the variable sporatically

I have noticed a strange behaviour in my ASP.net 2.0 application. I have some logic in my aspx page that accesses some Session variables fine, then accesses some app_code and most of the time the HTTPContext.Current.Session returns the variable back fine.  However, I have noticed that sometimes this Session returns null, like it has lost it's "pointer" to the current HTTPContext. Is this a known bug, has anyone seen something like this before?   Any help would be appreciated, thanks, Mark.
