Browse with and *permanent* default value ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


In VS 2010, I can click on a web page (either aspx or html) and choose Browse With. I can then choose a web browser and set it as a default. Next launch will use this browser... but only for the current session.

Is there any way to set up a default browser permanently in visual studio, or at least project per project ?

Cannot Browse to Default Url


I have a SharePoint site running on port 30544 called http://sp2010:30544. This site is configured use alternate access mapping for intranet and internet zones called http://intranet.domain.com and https://extranet.domain.com. Ever since I set up the alternate access mapping, I cannot browse to the original site and port (http://sp2010:30544) and neither can my search crawler. When I try to browse to http://sp2010:30544, I get an HTTP 400 Bad Request error.

I've configured bindings in IIS to look at port 80 and port 443 when using the alternat access mapping. I've also tried explicitly putting in binding sp2010 to 30544 in IIS, but that isn't working either.

How do I fix this? 

Default ASP.NET Architecture

In providing an architectural approach, some assumptions are made concerning the project goals. These assumptions should be used as a litmus test to determine if the described architecture may be an appropriate fit for your ASP.NET application.

Setting default localization



I ever thought that I can set a default localization if the users one (which is set in the browser) isn't available.

I've implemented my localresource files for localization. The start.aspx.resx contains all texts and elements for German use and the start.aspx.en.resx for English users. When I switch the language in the browser settings from German to English everything works fine and the english text is displayed. But when I switch to an other language which is not German or English, it takes defaulty the german resource files.

I've set

UICulture="auto:en-US" Culture="auto:en-US"

as well, but it didn't assume the .en resource file automatically. (For example when I enter the website and switch the browser language to French or Italian it should take the english resource files.)

Thanks and regards,

Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'CurrencyProxy.CurrencyServiceSoap



I created 2 projects in my solution:

  1. Classic asp.net web service (asmx)
  2. Class library project which references service
  3. web site project which references class library project
  4. Windows app project which references service.

Both projects were created in 3.5 framework and in Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2.

I added web service reference to Class library project. When it asked for namespace I typed "CurrencyProxy". Projects build ok, but when I run web app, Class library throws an error: Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'CurrencyProxy.CurrencyServiceSoap' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element.

I believe it has something to do with app.config in Class library project. Here is part from app.config:

<binding name="CurrencyServiceSoap" closeTimeout=

default.browser from asp.net 3.5 to asp.net 4.0


hello, it's me again :-)

a (maybe) stupid question:

in asp.net 3.5 i've this .browser file:


<browser refID="safari1plus">


<adapter controlType="System.Web.UI.WebControls.Menu" adapterType="" />





now i suppose that in asp.net 4.0 this is not useful.

So what i've to do? I've simply to delete "App_Browsers" folder in my converted project or i've to put in this folder:














What's the best way?

Thank  you very much!

Accounts in Default Template


Hi,  I'm trying to learn in the VS 2010 Express. Using the default template for ASP.Net Website. It starts the web application with an accounts folder. I'm trying to extend the "registration" or "AddUser" utilities. What I'd like to do is modify the registration by adding additional elements (i.e., address, city, ST, zip, etc.). I know I can open the database and modify the Users table and also modify the stored procedure for CreateUser.

My question is:  I don't see any reference in the page code (here's a reprint of the register.aspx.vb) that calls the procedure, or even passes in the variables from the textbox entries from the page. I must be missing something. Can someone clue me how to drill into this template to find the elements like how it communicates with the database. There are a few JQuery files. I am not yet very familiar with JQuery. Is that where I need to look? Thanks for any advice...

Public Class Register
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        RegisterUser.ContinueDestinationPageUrl = Request.QueryString("ReturnUrl")
    End Sub

    Protected Sub RegisterUser_CreatedUser(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles RegisterUser.CreatedUser

Default values in SQL syntax / MVC


Hi guys, I have a little problem for which I need a little advice about.

I have a repository function called getList which retrieves certain information that gets posted to it from a form. My form has 6 fields, and a user can enter searvh criteria in any or all the fields. According to what he has entered, I must execute a SQL string to retrieve matching information.

I have the following:

public List<Client> getList(string clientSurname, string clientInitials, string clientName, string clientNumber, string clientReference, int divisionID, int clientStatus, int usrID)


var clientlist = from c in DB.Clients
                             where c.Surname.Contains(clientSurname)
                             && c.FullName.Contains(clientName)
                             && c.Initials.Contains(clientInitials)
                             && c.OldClientNo.Contains(clientNumber)
                             && c.Reference.Contains(clientReference)
                             && c.DivisionID == divisionID
                             && c.Status == clientStatus
                             && division.Contains(c.DivisionID)
                             orderby c.Surname,c.Initials

Personal view reverts back to default after updating properties of item


I am working with a company that has 1 site collection with several sub sites.  I have built 3 document libraries with workflow in 3 different sub sites and all behave as expected.  I have one site where ALL libraries do something perplexing;

If you are in a custom personal view and you go into the properties of a document and then exit (update or not, does not matter) it reverts back to the default view of that library. 

Has anyone seen this?  is there an option when creating an album that could cause this?

thanks in advance for any input on this odd issue.

"Access is denied. Check that the Default Content Access Account has access to this content"


Our search is not working. The crawl log indicates following error: "Access is denied. Check that the Default Content Access Account has access to this content, or add a crawl rule to crawl this content. (The item was deleted because it was either not found or the crawler was denied access to it.)".


If I check the event viewer, it indicates following error: "Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE'. [CLIENT: <local machine>]"


My default content access account is another one than this NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE account. The content access account password is correct. Apparently this content access account is translated to the NETWORK SERVICE account upon a crawl. And this network service account doesn't has the appropriate rights on database level. How can I fix this?

I have created a BDC using Application Definition Editor. The connectivity with the Oracle database worked well when setting it up. I was also able to successfully create the BDC Column

But when I try to add a new record, the Browse Button next to Check Names is disabled. What could be the issue?
