file path problem

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

in the application, I need write a jpg file to local folder on server, then show it in browser.

so, the code likes show this file:

HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.Host + "/View/ViewJpg.aspx"

In the ViewJpg.aspx, it will process the jpg. /view is in root folder.

it works fine when the code is on a server, however, I have problem when I debug in on local machine.

because the code is actually http://localhost/mYproject but HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.Host only returns http://localhost.

what's the best way to deal with this?

While Importing Excel 2007 file to Datatable - headerrow problem


Hi there,


I am trying to simply extract an excel data from an uploaded file an put it into a datatable. In this case the excel file has 3 rows but when I fill the datatable I only see row count of 2.

I tried changing HDR:NO; to HDR:YES and vice versa, but no luck. 

What am I doing wrong? (Note: the excel file cannot have a  headerrow)


string connstr = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=" + pFilePath + ";Extended Properties=\"Excel 12.0;IMEX=1;HDR:NO;\"";
            OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection(connstr);
            DataTable dtTables = conn.GetOleDbSchemaTable(System.Data.OleDb.OleDbSchemaGuid.Tables, null);
            string strTablename = dtTables.Rows[0]["TABLE_NAME"].ToString();
            string strSQL = "SELECT * FROM [" + strTablename + "]";

            OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(strSQL, conn);

            DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            OleDbDataAdapter da = new OleDbDataAdapter(cmd);
            //At this point row count=2 which doesn't make sense




Problem in accessing resource file dynamically.


Steps I have followed are
1.I have created myres.en-GB.resx file at C:.
2.then created locale specific myres.en-GB.resources using resgen at c: only,

Al /t:lib /embed:myres.en-GB.resources /out:ClassLibrary1.dll
4.I have created one web application using vs 2008 & then build it.
5.Then placed both resource file & dll in web applications Bin\en-GB folder.
6.Anf finally written code at page load like
 CultureInfo info = new CultureInfo("en-GB");
            Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = info;
            Assembly asd = Assembly.Load("ClassLibrary1");
            ResourceManager res = new ResourceManager("myres.en-GB", asd.GetSatelliteAssembly(info));
            string sdf = res.GetString("Lab1");

but after running application I m getting following error

File Download Problem


Hi everyone,

I am using a download handler to handle the downloading of files from my website.  I am using a slightly modified code from the Microsoft article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/812406

Everything is working fine and downloading, even with large files, but it does not show the file size for any of the files to download. Even if theyre really small.

Here is my code for the handler

public class DownloadHandler : IHttpHandler

        public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
            string path = "";
                path = context.Server.UrlDecode(context.Request.QueryString["src"]).DecryptString();
            catch(Exception ex)
            System.IO.Stream iStream = null;

            byte[] buffer = new Byte[10000];

            int length;

            long dataToRead;

            string filename = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(path);

                iStream = new System.IO.FileStream(context.Server.MapPath("~/" + path), System.IO.FileMode.Open,
                            System.IO.FileAccess.Read, System.IO.FileShare.Read);

How do I find the file path from a namespace.class name?


I'm programatically looking ito a .aspx file and getting the file class name declared in its CodeBehind. For example, when analyzing myFile.aspx I read in its Page Directive and found its CodeBehind equals "myApplication\myPage.aspx.vb". Then I use the code below:


Dim Assm As System.Reflection.Assembly = System.Reflection.Assembly.LoadFrom("myApplication\bin\myApplication.dll")
Dim ClassType As Type = Assm.GetType("myApplication\myPage.aspx.vb")
' myBaseType = "myApplication.Forms.BasePage"
Dim myBaseType As System.Type = ClassType.BaseType


Now I want to read the BaseFile (class = myApplication.Forms.BasePage). However, to read in this file, I need I need to get its full path instead of its namespace.class hiearchy. In this case, the BasePage is wrapped in a different namespace declaration thus I cannot just change the '.' to '\' in order to get the path.

How can I get the path of BasePage so I can read it? Thank you - Frank

reading excel file problem



i have 200 rows in my excel file. im using OleDbConnection to read the excel file.

The problem is that it will read all the blank rows from row 200 onwards. Is there a configuration im missing ? or is there a way to import all rows that has data? Here's some of my code.

string excelConnectionString =
               "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" +
                "Data Source=" + filePath + ";" +
                "Extended Properties=Excel 8.0";

OleDbConnection excelConnection =
                    new OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" + filePath + ";Extended Properties='Excel 8.0;HDR=NO'");

OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand("Select * from [list$]",excelConnection);

Generating MS Word doc from mht file gives smart quote problem

So I have a word document template saved as .mht file on the web server.

In my ASP.Net code,I read this mht file content and replace certain string line Description$$ with the actual description from the database.Then save this content as .doc file.

This works fine but shows a box symbol when I have smart quotes " (not this one as I cannot type it here.The double quote which you see in MS Word,the slanted double quote).

I dont know how to make my word doc generated, show the exact double quote as in MS word.

Problem when using Activator.CreateObject and reading App.Config file

Hello, this is the scenario. I have an application that load at runtime severals dll. these dll are actually "adapters" that wraps calls to web services, database and so on. The app.config of the "main" application stores in config sections all information necessary to each adapter (i.e.Web ServiceURL..) and I have created inside each adapter a class to ready those values the loading at run time the DLL has been implemented by storing all necessary types into a dictionary of generics and when I need to instanciate it I call the Activate.CreateObject and I pass the specific type (I means the name of the Adapter class) The problem is that the adapter class itself is not able to get the config value because ConfigSection has not been initialized. If I write: IInterfaceAdap adapt = new myAdapter() -> I read the config data IInterfaceAdap adapt = (IInterfaceAdap)Activator.CreateObject (type) -> now way to read the data stored in the App.Config. I think that I undertood the problem but I'm not able to find a workaround to read data store in the app.config!! I need help please!!  

Access to path xxx denied when uploading a file using c#

Hi I have a file upload app written in c#. The app runs on IIS on a Windows 2003 Server OS. I want the app to upload the file onto the server (The app and the server are on the same machine).

I have given ASPNET account full access to the folder on the server, and it still gives this error. Is this a bug in 2003, and can anybody assist me? Thanks Shane

Method/Way to know whether a input path of FilesSystem contains any Child file/folder or not

Hi,I am looking for a Method/Way to know whether a input path of FilesSystem contains any Child file/folder or not. To know it currently I am using "Directory.GetFileSystemEntries(Path).Count" and checking if count > 0 then returning True else False. For this first method calculates all the files and folder and then return status to me but I want to exit out as soon as my method gets first element(file/folder) in specified path. Because above method is timing out when my input path contains more than 1 million files. I just need to check whether input folder path contains any child file/folder or not. I have tried to use Win32 API also but on ther server it is crashing so I donot want to use that solution. In .NET any method or way is present to know it. Please suggest me.
