How to securely display PDF files on a portal page

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi guys,

I need a control that display a PDF file from MOSS library so that user can't get a copy of it. I perfectlly understand that's not possible to completely save document from copying, I just want to make it as hard for user as possible.

So far I embedded a PDF file into user control as described there:


But I still have 2 major propblems:

1) displayed PDF file's saved at Temporary Internet Files after each page download

(Response.Cache.SetCacheability (HttpCacheability.NoCache) doesn't help)


2)if page is opened as a Source file then a link to a PDF is clearly visible inside UserControl code.


Is there a chance to avoid any of these issues? Or may be you have any other ideas?

Want to create Page URL rewrite based on Users GUID and Display name?



I am using the asp.net membership. 

On my site I have a Profile.aspx page.

In the code behind of this page,  i get the logged in UserId (Guid) and pass

this to a method in my DAL. GetUserByUserId()


In my database I have a Table called Member which the method gets the data from

and displays details on the page about  the user.


What I want to happen is when they have logged in and are diverted to Profile.aspx,

the page URL shows www.MyWebSite/Profile/UsersName 

for example



is this possible. In my Member table I have FirstName and LastName columns or do I get the

name from the membership table.


even better would be they go straight to www.MyWebsite/JohnSmith.aspx


thank you for any help

display files to download based on who is logged in

I have an asp.net web app. I have secure parts to the website and currently I have it setup so that people can login with their domain accounts. The are three secure sections to the site, all of which require files of interest be displayed to the user so they can download them.Okay so this is how I see it working, people come to the home page and select on one of the three options. At this point they are prompted for there domain password then they are navigated to the secure page and a bit of code populates the page with file downloads based on who they are logged in as.The files themselves will be uploaded to the website and kept in folders named after the username. so for instance the user edwardh would be displayed the files in the folder /downloads/edwardh.I'm not sure where to start with this, any direction?

SharePoint 2010 new site collection display blank page

I'm using Windows Vista SP2 and trying to learn Sharepoint 2010. I'm new to Sharepoint and I'm sorry if I'm asking something very simple. I've successfully installed Sharepoint foundation 2010 and VS 2010. According to the installation instruction if the installation is successful I should see the new sharepoint website home page or ask for login info which will take to the home page. But for me it displayed a blank web page. I was able to get to Sharepoint Central administration page by clicking the browse option from IIS, it asked me login info and when I provided that I was able to see the Sharepoint central administration page. Now I am trying to create a new site collection, it is succesfully creating the new site collection and showing the link, but when I access the link I see a blank webpage. I think it is some permission issue and if the program prompts login, it should work, but how can I get to the login window or how can I see the home page and not a blank page? Thanks

Form opening in infopath client despite Content Type settings "Display as a Web Page"

Despite that when the client is availble on the computer which is browsing the Form Library, I'm asked to "Open", "Save" or "Cancel" instead of opening the form in the browser.   Any idea why this is happening ?
