How to programmatically POST data to an aspx page?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to POST data to an aspx page.

I've got a button click event (btnSend_Click) within which I want to programmatically POST data ("key1=value1", "key2=value2") to another aspx page ("ReceivingPage.aspx") on my site.  It would be very easy to do if it were a GET, cos I'd just append the data key/values to a query string of a HyperLink control. But How do I do this as a POST? 

Thanks for the help.

need a way to post a form in my .aspx page to an external URL


I'm migrating an old ColdFusion site to ASP.NET. One of the pages has a form that posts to an external URL.

<form action='https://www.innlinkcrs.com/rescreate.asp' method='get'>

I just discovered that you can't do this in an .aspx page. Seems the page will just post to itself if you hit the submit button.

What's the proper technique for achieving this in ASP.NET? There are a couple of hidden fields that pass parameters to the external URL.


Correct Way to Insert Data from Text Boxes on ASPX page into SQL Database Using VB


Please help me, I have been trying this for a week now and this is how far I have gotten.


I am new to this, and I am using MS Visual Web Developer Express.


OK - This is what I have come up with, but when I run it I get the following error  (I decided to just try to use a simplified table just to get an understanding of the basic concepts):



Partial Class label_form
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        ' Declaring variables
        Dim username, labelname, ownersname, address1, address2, city, state, zipcode, country, contactnumber, emailaddress, data_source, con, sql_insert

        ' Check if Necessary Text Is Missing ( will do this once I can get it to work with no empty text boxes)

        ' Get Values from TextBoxes
        username = txtUserName.Text
        labelname = txtLabelName.Text
        ownersname = txtOwnersName

Having trouble filtering data view inserted on DispForm.aspx by field value already on the page.

I have a DispForm.aspx page showing, of course, the names and values of fields of an item within a custom list that I have created.

I have inserted a dataview of another custom list onto this page.  Of course, when doing so, SharePoint Designer allows you to create a filter for this view.

I would like to filter this dataview using a value of a field of an item of the FIRST custom list (a value already shown on this page).

I mistakenly thought creating a data view parameter of "Form" source was the solution, but it is not.

Is there a way I can capture data appearing on the page (from the original DispForm) and use this value as a filter?

Any assistance would be most helpful.

How to take data from aspx page to stored procedure?


Hi all, I have to create an RDLC report in asp.net. For which I am writing a stored procedure using different scalar functions. I have a GUI from which I have to select a criteria and collect data according to that criteria. The GUI is here:


I have implemented all cases like "All Staff", "All services", etc but the problem comes when I have to select specific records from list box and bring data according to that. For example I select specfic Staff records from list and my report should display the records only having that selected records. How can I handle this? I mean when I select some records from listbox, how can I take these records to the where clause of my stored procedure and how to use it there?

I am using SQL SERVER 2008.

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.



server side does not save data when using POST data to another URL using WebRequest


 I am using a IIS 7.5 on Windows 7. I have a simple application that uses System.Net.WebRequest to POST data to another URL (in fact, the server side URL is on my local computer and it is hosted in IIS 7.5).

  1.  The problem is the server does not save data from client although on the client side codes when I debug and I see the OK message return from the code line

   response.StatusDescription; // this has value of "OK"
2. How can I debug the server code side where to receive the request from client side who posts the data ?

The following is the codes for client who posts data using System.Net.WebRequest, and codes for server side who received posted data to save to database.

Client side codes: // also run on my local computer

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.

How to process data AFTER page is completely loaded for the user?


I have some logging that has to be done, which are some database update or inserts.

However this logging is of no importance to the user, so I only want to process the data/logs after the page is completed for the user.
As of now, if I process the data while the page is loading, I go from 1.4 to 2.0 speed (server side time processing of code), which is quite a bit comparing it is of no use to the user.

So I want this code only executed after that the page is complete.

I've been checking out Ajax, async pages etc, but the problem is it still gets executed before the page is rendered to the client, which means the client will have to wait longer then it is not being processed.

I've been checking out Threadpool.queueBackgroundWorker, however if I get it correct, this will still be executed before the page is shown to the user, as it has to complete before the prerender.

Then I thought about creating a new thread, and do the processing there, which would not have my page waiting to complete the data/logging.
However when I have 100 or 200 users loading pages at the same time, then that would mean I would be creating 200 threads on those loads, which I doubt will be good for performance. So if I want to solve this, I would have to create my own threadpool and only assign for example a max of 40 threads to it which can pr

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.
