Extreme ASP.NET: A New Solution to an Old State Storage Problem

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

State management in Web applications is a contentious issue. Should you store user data per session or should you persist it across sessions? You can easily store information temporarily while someone navigates your site by using session state.

SQL Server Session state problem.


Hi to all,

I have some things that I want to know. I am right now using a free asp.net webhosting ("somee.com"). The problem is that when I am visiting a page, there's a tendency that values stored in my session variables are lost. Therefore, it causes an error when the requested page is loaded.

1. I am thinking of using sessionState mode="SqlServer". Will it solve my problem?

Actualy Im working on it but Im having problems when connecting to the sql database.

2.  Is that a problem in the webhost?

3. Do free webhosting sites provide allow session state in the sql server?. Because ive tried it locally into my computer and error say's i should intall the ASP.NET Session State SQL Server version 2.0 or above.

Session State Problem




I just for the first time into a session state problem. So I am hoping someone

here has the answer.


I have written an ASP.Net website and tried to implement the common poor mans online user count.
The problem I am having is the following.

On App_Start I create a variable and assign it the value of 0;

Then increase the number on session_start and decrement on session_end.

On my local IIS it works perfectly from IE8 and Opera. The value increments correctly.
As soon as I upload to my live server. The value increments on every link I click and every page refresh when I test with IE8.
This does not happen when testing with Opera.

Could someone please shed some light on the subject.

SSRS 2008 R2 Problem understanding View State Validation steps

Hi, Sorry, but I have some problem understanding this steps. Please help me to understand this.  Pasted from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc281307.aspx?lc=1033 How to Configure View State Validation To run a scale-out deployment on an NLB cluster, you must configure view state validation so that users can view interactive HTML reports. You must do this for the report server and for Report Manager. View state validation is controlled by the ASP.NET. By default, view state validation is enabled and uses the identity of the Web service to perform the validation. However, in an NLB cluster scenario, there are multiple service instances and web service identities that run on different computers. Because the service identity varies for each node, you cannot rely on a single process identity to perform the validation. To work around this issue, you can generate an arbitrary validation key to support view state validation, and then manually configure each report server node to use the same key. You can use any randomly generated hexadecimal sequence. The validation algorithm (such as SHA1) determines how long the hexadecimal sequence must be. Generate a validation key and decryption key by using the autogenerate functionality provided by the .NET Framework. (Well, how to generate Validation key using .Net Framework?) In the end, you must have a singl

Hover State styling problem...

Here is a link to a screenshot of the off state... http://www.spasticgoat.com/shareshot.jpg when I hover over one of them, it activates a blue gradient background image in the tabs, which I can't get rid of! I've been trying to just use: background-image: none; and then assign a background color to the hover state, but it's not happening.   Any ideas?

Problem setting Foreground with Visual State Manager (WPF - .Net v4.0

0 down vote favorite I have a WPF application, and I am attempting to style a TextBox using the .Net v4 Visual State Manager. Specifically, I am attempting to set the colors of the Foreground and Background for the MouseOver state. What is happening is that, while the background and border are changing perfectly, the foreground is not. If the brushes that I am using get their color via a StaticResource, then the foreground does not change at all. If the brushes that I am using get their color via a DynamicResource, then when I mouse over a TextBox, the foreground of all TextBoxes change. Clearly, either I'm doing something wrong, or what I want to do is simply not possible with VSM (which would be rather disappointing). Here are the resources that I am using:   <Color x:Key="ControlBackgroundColor" R="178" G="178" B="178" A="255" />  <Color x:Key="ControlForegroundColor" R="0" G="0" B="0" A="255" />  <Color x:Key="BorderColor" R="127" G="127" B="127" A="255" />  <Color x:Key="MouseOverControlBackgroundColor" R="0" G="0" B="0" A="255" />  <Color x:Key="MouseOverControlForegroundColor" R="255" G="2

ResGen.exe: Problem when compiling solution appears out of nowhere

is the overarchitecting of a solution a major problem in the development world today.

Hello all,I have been on this project for a while and wanted to get your thoughts.I have been working on a Sharepoint solution for a while to create a ASP .Net feature in Visual Studio. Now this is your standard CRUD application that queries data, displays data, updates data etc.As I am proceeding to code in this the original developer has used quite a few patterns MVP, observer, commands, repository and a couple of others. Being that this is Sharepoint developement and integration with Sharepoint is not good at all, I am finding that to much time is spent managing facets of the patterns rather than actually finishing the app. Another point is that debugging a Sharepont app with VS2008 is a pain because I have to redeploy the app everytime to make sure my changes worked.My chief concern is that its taking me going through about5 hours, 8 different objects having to redeploy the app to sharepoint over 10 times to test my code just to populate a couple of grids and comboboxes. It just seems more efficient use of my time program this app just seperating out my data access and business logic layers and calling the them from my code behind in my ASP .Net pages. It just seemed like he used the patterns just to use them without understanding why they are needed or a patterns proper place in an app..What do you guys think?

Sharepoint infopath forms problem / state service



I am uploading an infopath form to sharepoint.  Infopath reports that the form uploaded successfully, however when I click the link to open the form in the browser, I get a message:

The form cannot be rendered. This may be due to a misconfiguration of the Microsoft SharePoint Server State Service. For more information, contact your server administrator.

I've google about and it appears that setting up the state service and associating it with the application solves the problem.  I've followed the instructions, but the problem still persists!  Do I need to stop/start something else to get it to work?  The service application pages report the service is running and associated with the applications.

Thanks for any help - it's driving me nuts

A solution for the Sys.Webforms.PageRequestManagerServerErrorException problem


I was receiving the Sys.Webforms.PageRequestManagerServerErrorException error with an ASP.NET AJAX project I was working on.  I searched the Forums and other sources and found some common recommendations, but none worked.  Here's a summary of the cause and solution:

1) The web.config had the customErrors tag mode="RemoteOnly" and a custom Error page.  This caused the exception to happen with server deployments, but not show itself with local development environments.

2) The custom Error page causes the Response to AJAX Request to be altered and therefore causing the PageRequestManagerServerErrorException

3) Setting the AllowCustomErrorsRedirect="false" on the ScriptManager prevents the custom Error page from being used with AJAX Requests - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.scriptmanager.allowcustomerrorsredirect.aspx.

4) Define an OnAsyncPostBackError event handler on the ScriptManager to handle exceptions and set the OnAsyncPostBackErrorMessage to a user friendly error message the can be displayed to the user - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui

WF solution to my problem


I'm new to Work Flow. I'm trying to find whether WF provides a solution to my problem.

I'm working on a solution for a refund process. The customer calls the call center. The agent looks at the customer's record and issue a refund - if the amount is less than $5. The customer can't give a refund over $5, so he can only make a request to the supervisor. The supervisor can approve or reject his request. The agent calls the supervisor to his cubicle. The supervisor enters his secret code and approves the request. Also the agent can't give more than he is allotted for a day like $25. In that case also, the supervisor has to approve the agent's request.

The agent uses a web based application. This front-end application calls a WCF service hosted in a different office. The service can respond to the front-end status like (1) timed out (2) rejected (3) approved (4) investigation. The service gives a status of 'investigation' because there are some steps that the customer has to follow has not completed - like the office has not received the mail-in rebate form.

Now to the solution. I have to bring some efficiency in the communication between the agent and the supervisor. The supervisor does not have to run to each agent to approve the request. Secondly the 'timed out' and 'investigated' requests need to be processed in 24 hours time again and n
