Dropdown control issue while selecting the value in IE8.

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


I am facing an issue while selecting a dropdown list value in IE8.

In IE8, while selecting the item in the dropdown list, the control goes out of focus immediatley when clicked for the list of items to select.It makes very hard for the user to select the value from dropdown list.

This dropdown control has some CSS settings enabled for it. I am not sure if this is an issue.

Any suggestions/ideas on this issue.

Issue in Infopath 2007 browser form - cascading dropdown using owssvr.dll filter view


Referring the below link, I created a cascading dropdown. The parent dropdown has sharepoint list as datasource and the child dropdown has xml datasource that points to owssvr.dll filter view. The cascading drop down works fine in preview but throws error after publishing as admin approved form - "form cannot run the specified query" exception when trying to execute xml datasource i.e., when a value is selected in parent dropdown. The security is 'Full Trust". In the event viewer the error message states "401 unauthorised" for the user a/c. the xml data source is an approved udcx file and in central admin, have enabled cross domain for infopath service. I have tried different solution provided in tech forums but issue still exists. Not sure whether Im missing something. Can someone guide me in fixing this issue?

Menu control rendering issue with IE8



Using VS2010, I created an ASP.NET 4.0 web application and simply added a couple of menu items below the "Home" menu item in the master page that's created by the project wizard. I made no other changes - no code, no stylesheet changes.

If I run the app locally then everything is fine. I suspect because the local IIS is responsive enough for the problem not to occur.

If I deploy the app to a web host (discountasp.net) then I see the menu render vertically for less than a second before it renders correctly. If I refresh the page a few times then usually I can see the menu vertical flash but sometimes I can't, so there's some sort of timing consideration.

I'm using IE8. The problem doesn't seem to occur with either Firefox 3 or Chrome.

Have others seen this problem?

Any suggestions for a fix?

I can supply the zipped up project if anyone wants it.


Issue with Remember Me on User Login control


Hi everyone,

     I hope you can help me, I tried Google, but none of the solutions worked. Using VB.net and Membership, I have a login control in my master page with a remember me check box. When I check this box and login, some pages indicate that I am not logged in. If I go to another page, it will then indicate that I am still logged in. I have isolated one page that always indicates I am not logged in the first time I visit it, but if log in a second time and then go to it, it will finally recognize me as a user that is properly logged in. 

Some pages that this occurs on is in the top level, some pages are in a sub folder.

My MasterPage has the following Form Code:

<body bgcolor="#E0ECF9" topmargin="0" leftmargin="0">

    <form id="form1" runat="server">

My Aspx file has a troubleshooting label, several Gridviews and several DetailViews:

    <asp:Label ID="lblErRep" runat="server" Text=""></asp:Label>

My aspx.vb file has 1 line of code (Protec

Issue with Repeater control.

Hello. I have a Repeater control which contains asp:Button control in ItemTemplate. I want to handle Button's Click event, but when I'm clicking that Button the error is thrown: Invalid postback or callback argument.  Event validation is enabled using <pages enableEventValidation="true"/> in configuration or <%@ Page EnableEventValidation="true" %> in a page.  For security purposes, this feature verifies that arguments to postback or callback events originate from the server control that originally rendered them.  If the data is valid and expected, use the ClientScriptManager.RegisterForEventValidation method in order to register the postback or callback data for validation.But on other computer that piece of code is working.I set EnableEventValidation to false, but it's still not working. Please help me out. 

The OTHER Menu control issue...

Ok, everyone knows that the z-index is messed up in IE8 and that requires patches or workarounds...What I can't seem to find a solution to is the white background on the DynamicMenu parts of a Menu control.  Setting the background color to transparent or not setting it all doesn't seem to have any effect.  This is only a problem in IE8, Firefox 3.6.8 renders the dynamic menus without the white background.

LoginView Control Issue

I'm using VWD 2010 Express, and I'm working on a school lesson that I actually did approximately 2 years ago In VWD 2005 with no problems.  I am just learning to program, so my knowledge is very limited.The lesson walks me through creating a master page and then I created a page called "Login.aspx".  On the login page, I am dropping a LoginView control into the ContentPlaceHolder section, and then I'm supposed to type "Welcome !" into the LoginView box for the LoggedIn template, but the LoginView box is very small and when I start typing, the first couple of letters go into the LoginView box, and then they start showing up on the far left outside of the LoginView control.  When I try to click back in the LoginView window, it will only select the entire control, and I can no longer modify what's in the box (unless I go to Source view).  I can't even begin to explain how frustrating this is!!!  It's tough enough trying to learn this stuff and now my development tool is giving me grief!  I don't understand why it worked fine in VWD 2005, but not now (and I'm using the same exact lesson material).

Cascading Dropdown Web Method Issue



I am having an intersting issue to which I have found no solution, obviously. I am using a web service to populate a couple cascading drop downs. Evereything looks correct to me but I am getting a [Method Error 500] when I run it all. I have the <System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptService()> added to the web service so that's not the problem. What I have found while playing with it is that if I remove the arguments from the web method (ByVal knownCategoryValues As String, ByVal category As String) then it works. This of course is not helpful as I am trying to populate multiple drop downs. I can find nothing on anyone else having this issue.

I am using .NET 3.5 and Ajax DLL version 3.02... 

Also of note is that I have another website, using the same .NET and Ajax versions and this code is working fine.

I have tried everything I can think of, including my last resort tactic of smashing my face on my keyboard, and nothing is working. I am at a loss. Any help would be appriciated. Thanks.

Drop Downs:

<asp:DropDownList runat="server" ID="ddlPlateType" Width="250px" />

<ajax:CascadingDropDown runat="server" ID="cddPlateType" TargetControlID="ddlPlateType"

e.Result in selected vs selecting event of linqdatasource control



in the selected event it seems even though e.TotalRowCount really is the total row count, when I cast e.Result to a type in order to access the actual data only the current page of data is there? not all.

IEnumerable<InventoryGridItem> items = (IEnumerable<InventoryGridItem>)e.Result;

items only has the 15 records for the current gridView page, not all the records, is this normal? If I need to access all the items in the result do I need to stick with the selecting event instead? 

Trying to incorporate the use of a dropdown list control with a grid view control


I'm trying to setup a page that will utilize a dropdown list control inside of a grid view control using VS 2005 2.0 version. Everything that I can find online seems to only show the use of the dropdown list control using a data grid. I don't want to use a data grid because it doesn't have the functionality/ power as the grid view control. Can someone please tell me how I can incorporate a dropdown list control with the grid view control? Here is a copy of my code.

<asp:GridView ID="HardwareSetdv" runat="server" AllowPaging="True"
        AllowSorting="True" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="AcctID"
            <asp:CommandField ShowSelectButton="True" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="HardwareSetID" HeaderText="HardwareSetID"
                InsertVisible="False" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression=&quo

Slightly different issue: SetFocus from control to WPF parent window in C#...


I've just spent about an hour seaarching for something that should be easy to find with the question: How to set focus on a WPF window.

I have a StatusBar item. When the mouse leaves that item, I need to set the focus back to the StatusBarItem's parent window.

I've tried everything I can think of.  Sorry to be so dense, but I am still a WPF/C# newbie.

Please advise.
