MaskedEdit Extender & Validator - Save Mask only if Value Present

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

I want to save the input mask used in the control, but ONLY if a valid value was entered. In this markup, the mask is properly displayed and stored even if the user doesn't enter anything. Since a zero-length string is a valid value, the entered value is being stored in the database as (___) ___-____ If there is no value entered, the value stored should be a zero length string.

         <asp:TextBox runat="server" style="font-family:Tahoma;font-size:8pt;width:95px" ID="TextBoxPhoneMobileTemporary" Text='<%#Bind("PhoneMobileTemporary")%>' />
         <ajax:MaskedEditExtender runat="server" ID="MEE4" TargetControlID="TextBoxPhoneMobileTemporary" Mask="(999) 999-9999" ClearMaskOnLostFocus="false" />
         <ajax:MaskedEditValidator runat="server" ID="MEV4" ControlExtender="MEE4" ControlToValidate="TextBoxPhoneMobileTemporary" IsValidEmpty="true" />

Outline doesn't appear around the Validator Callout Extender's callout


For some reaon the black outline isn't appearing around my Validator Callout Extender's callout box.  I don't have a css class set.  It should display a yellow callout with a black outline.  Like on the sample page: http://www.asp.net/ajax/ajaxcontroltoolkit/samples/ValidatorCallout/ValidatorCallout.aspx .

 It shows the yellow call out with the black outline around the pointed part but not the main box.  Any idea's on why this is happening?

Mask Edit Extender at Runtime


Hi All

Im trying to connect up a MaskEditExtender at runtime but the Mask Edit Extender doesnt seem to work.


Heres the code:-


        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            TextBox tbJob_No = new TextBox();
            tbJob_No.ID = "tbJobNo";
            tbJob_No.Text = "";

            MaskedEditExtender mmeJob_No = new MaskedEditExtender();
            mmeJob_No.ID = "mmeJob_No";
            mmeJob_No.TargetControlID = tbJob_No.ID;
            mmeJob_No.MaskType = MaskedEditType.Number;
            mmeJob_No.Mask = "99/9999/99";



Any ideas?






Unit Testing SharePoint - Past, Present, and Sporm

As I described in SharePoint: The Wild West of Software Development there is a serious problem when you develop for SharePoint: ensuring quality through unit testing is really, really hard. And that's where a new open source tool just released today called sporm (SharePoint Object Relational Mapper) comes in. While sporm provides many benefits besides simplified unit testing I wanted to focus on this topic first, because sporm's approach, which models the entity framework in the way it supports POCO's, is a unique feature not available with other SharePoint tools like LINQ to SharePoint.

Save images to SQL CE

Storing binary objects (such as image, office document etc.) into database is a little cumbersome when it comes to retrieval. Hence the most commonly accepted way is only store the file path in the database, and to store the documents on a file share.

Development Environment:  VS 2008 Pro, IIS 6, asp.net 2.x, sql 2005 server

Installed the version of AJAX Toolkit and Library for the .net 2.0 compatibility (as IIS is still using 2.x)

The problem is as that within the vs 2008 pro, when I select for example a button control...there should be an additional pop-up intellisense indicating...add extender.

to compound this, within the extender control ... the TargetControlID -- should be a drop-down list, indicating which controls are compatible with the extender ... there is no drop-down list.

even if I manually type the control to associate the extender with, this has no effect on the control (such as textbox control) -- as there should be another option appear indicating the association has taken place).

 below is the steps to take (as written by MS) -- but this is what I am not getting:

"If the Button Tasks shortcut menu does not appear, right-click the Button control and then click Show Smart Tag."  -- the smart tag is not appearing

Animation Extender ( LinkButton Disbale )


My flyout animation starts on a click of linkbutton, everything works fine on IE, as I click the linkbutton flyout animation is triggered and linkbutton gets disbaled during the animation. But on Firefox and Chorme linkbutton doesn't get disbaled , due which if I again and again click on the linkbutton the flyout animation keeps moving towards left side on every click.

In firefox and chorme linkbutton always remains enabled.

 <cc1:AnimationExtender ID="AnimationExtender1" TargetControlID="lnkBtnAbt" runat="server">
                        <EnableAction Enabled="false" />

Validator code keeling over


I'm posting in this forum, as it seems the best place for looking at some horrible Javascript!  In essence, I'm trying to hook into a RangeValidator on the client side - nothing special, just asking it to revalidate.  So, I have this in my VB:

 objDescriptor.AddProperty("DateRangeValidator", rvDateInput.ClientID)

and this in my JS: 

// First the constructor
this._DateRangeValidator = null; 

// Then the prototype
get_DateRangeValidator: function () {
        return this._DateRangeValidator;

    set_DateRangeValidator: function (value) {
        this._DateRangeValidator = value;


That's no different from many of the other references I am passing around, and which all work.  So, I'd expect this:


to "just work" and re-evaluate the validity - I think!  What I am actually seeing is:

function ValidatorUpdateDisplay(val) {
    if (typeof(v

Profile not being save after redirect.



I am trying to save values into a Profile on Page1, then redirect to Page2 and access those values.  However, after the page redirects the profile values are blank as if they were never saved.   When stepping through the code I can see that they are being save on Page 1.

I suppose I could use session variables to store the information but I don't understand why saving the profile doesn't work.

private void PayWithPayPal()
        ProfileCommon profile = this.Profile;

        if (Global.CurrentUserName.Length > 0)
            profile = this.Profile.GetProfile(Global.CurrentUserName);
        profile.FirstName = uxFirstNameShipping.Text;
        profile.LastName = uxLastNameBilling.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.AddressLineOne = uxAddressLineOneShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.AddressLineTwo = uxAddressLineTwoShipping.Text;

Hello good people, 

I have this beast as an error. Did my research and found some posts here as well but did not do any good for me. 

Here is what I did. I had an error regarding issue rights with COM objects so I gave access rights under component services for Microsoft Excel application now I am getting this error. 

Here is some information regarding this

1. Gave rights to ASPNET and network service to my web app directory to try to fix this error. 

2. The exact same process works on my Windows 2003 server and my Windows 7 development machine. I am trying to get this going on a different windows 2003 machine that is outside of our domain.

3. Developing on windows 7 64 bit with office 2010 installed. Also excel 2010 is installed on my Web server
