Basic Web Forms Question Regarding Returning Html To The page

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

I have a web application I am working on but this is using simple web forms.

Long story short I want to create a commenting system similar to that of google sites for example.

All comments are saved to the database against a user id and submission id (meaning they are relevant to the page they are presented on).

Currently I am displaying them in a table using GridView which is kinda well annoying.

Is there anyway to return custom HTML from the server to a palceholder control or something of the like.

Basically run a for loop and fill up a placeholder control with html that will render appropriatelly

I know, its basic but I am a total noob.

Very Basic Question - Error message running first page


Hi Everyone,

I am running Windows 7 and I have gone into Control Panel and activated all of the IIS Functions.

The web application I am running was downloaded from the net (and has worked on other machines previously).  Once I downloaded it, I moved it into C:/inetpub/wwwroot/code/main.asp

I am a bit of a novice at this!  But I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction!


I get the following error when I try and run the web application through IE:

"An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator. If you are the system administrator please click here to find out more about this error."

(When i click the "click here" button it just goes to the IIS site).


Appreciate any help I can get!




Some basic MVC question

  1. In regular asp net I can run (debug) the application but I can either "view in browser" that gives me the option to view the application and write code on same time.

In MVC I can't find this option.

  1. What is the basic DATA MODEL for working with SQL DB.

I mean with no any framework (entity framework, Sub sonic, Link to SQL etc')

I look for basic application that works with data but with no fw.

  1. What is the popular DB framework that working with data.
  2.  I am looking on  mvc series


C# Soup To Nuts  (the best series ever)


I watch some of the MVC video, seems that the music store is good but I have to wait to the other part.

Does any one know and recommend   a Microsoft MVC tutorial?





Re-positioning an HTML container with javascript onresize with a Master page.


I have an HTML <div> container that I float to the right of a gridview.  When the browser window is maximized, it looks fine.  When minimized, the gridview positions below the floating container and most of the data is pushed off the bottom of the browser - you have to scroll down to see it.

If I position the floating container above the gridview it looks fine in a minimized window, but looks real bad when maximized.

What I want to do is use a javascript: onresize event to re-position the floating container up or down depending on the window.inner.width AND do it with a Master/Content page structure AND do it for only the one page where needed.

I can capture the onresize event and display the window dimensions but haven't figured-out how to do it with a Content page that still uses the Master page.  I think I'm having a very "thick" week...

Client ID basic question


Hi guys,

Is there any problem to use MANUALLY, within a Javascript, the client ID code?

Like that  ctl00_ContentPlaceHolderConteudo_pgtoiframe


I have one iFrame that need to access div style located in the parent page. So I've done that using manually the clientID code. The code works perfectly and It's still working fine right now.

Will I get errors or problems in the future using it in that manner????

Thank you


Multiple forms on the same page MVC2: how to handle (including validation from model)



It should be simple; although I'm having a hard time to figure out the best way to do it. I've MVC2 pages with multiple forms on the same page having different functionalities.

What's the best way to handle this; including the MVC2 way of validation from the model?


Control Values When Returning to Page


Why do controls value not persist when returning to a page (e.g. via browser back button)?  If I set control values without utilizing a post back the controls will maintain their last value when I return to the page.  If I set a control value and then call a post back, the control value is reset to the default value when returning.

I have many pages with a gridview, and a textbox which is used to filter the gridview contents.  I set the filter textbox, filter the gridview (postback), go to another page, and when I return to the gridview page (via back button), my filter textbox is reset empty, and the gridview is the original (unfiltered) data.

What concept am I missing here?

Thanks in advance...

Basic question



           I m using VS 2005. When I create a website using VS 2005, it doesnt let me choose the solution folder it automatically creates the folder under My Document. Dont know why. I created website under say C:\Project\MyWebsite.


I have a page, with an image whose source is /image/xyz.gif. So I created a folder image under c:\Project\MyWebsite and have xyz.gif. But the page didnt show the image. If the image path is "image/xyz.gif" then it works. Isnt the directory that you create MyWebsite the root directory?.







Basic question about web services


I followed an example on how to create a simple web service that converts celsius to fahrenheit. It seems to work alright. After the conversion it outputs the new value in xml. What do you do with the value that's in xml? Do you use an Xmlreader to read it from the xml, or what is usually done after the value is generated in xml?

Using AuthenticationService from pure html Question?

After searching the web I'm completely confused as to what my options are for using the AuthenticationService from a pure html page (with JavaScript, so NO asp.net webform and NO ScriptManager. I didn't found any clear code snippets for my problem. What I found where some 'pieces' of the puzzle.Option 1using an Authentication.svc file (see hereunder), adapting web.config and using javascript to use the Sys.Services.AuthenticationService methods. However by just using the Sys.Services.AuthenticationService.login method as-is (with the 8 parameters) the system gives a 500 error.Authentication.svc<%@ ServiceHost Language="C#"    Service="System.Web.ApplicationServices.AuthenticationService"    Factory="System.Web.ApplicationServices.ApplicationServicesHostFactory" %>Option 2Setting  Sys.Services.AuthenticationService.set_path("Authentication_JSON_AppService.axd"); and using the Sys.Services.AuthenticationService methods; here Sys.Services.AuthenticationService.login/logout works just fine.Can someone please explain me the differences of both approaches and where can i find clear examples of both approaches?Many thanks.
