Request is redirected to default Web-Service page (possible cookie issue)

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

I have a strange problem on my web-service application:
 - when I am initating a web-service request from my client app, no matter if I am using IIS or ASP.NET development server, I'm getting the folowing exception:


System.ServiceModel.ProtocolException: The content type text/html; charset=utf-8 of the response message does not match the content type of the binding (text/xml; charset=utf-8). If using a custom encoder, be sure that the IsContentTypeSupported method is implemented properly. The first 1024 bytes of the response were: '


    <head><link rel="alternate" type="text/xml" href="/TestWebSvc.asmx?disco" />

    <style type="text/css">
        BODY { color: #000000; background-color: white; font-family: Verdana; margin-left: 0px; margin-top: 0px; }
        #content { margin-left: 30px; font-size: .70em; padding-bottom: 2em; }


 - in my client's app.config file I have pointed to an address like the following one: http://localhost/WebSvc/TestWebSvc.asmx .

 - I have installed SnifferHttpModule (http://geekswithblogs.net/robp/archive/2008/05/13/creating-a-sniffer-for-asp.net.aspx) to see the requests and responses of my web-service,

extra request to a default page on a callback


Hello guys,

I have a following issue on production server (the development environment is free of it) And it's only happening in Internet Explorer.

I add callback to a page in the old-fashioned way -> Page.ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(...)

The scenario is:

1) The default page is being loaded. On Page_OnLoad it assigns a NULL to some session key. Let's call it Control -> Session["Control"] = null;

2) User presses a button and gets redirected to a next page (let's call it NextPage.aspx) using javascript event -> window.location.assign(....) (also tried .href = ... - no help)

3) The NextPage.aspx assigns some value to Session["Control"] on Page_OnLoad

5) User clicks a button on the NextPage.aspx and a callback request is being sent to a server....

TA DA!!! The interesting part:

6) Along with the request to the NextPage.aspx another request is being sent to the default page.

7) The only response is being recieved by a client is a response from the NextPage.aspx BUT since the code on the default page is being executed it puts null to the Session["Control"] which screws all my following scenario. the default page doesn't recognize the request as a callback? so if(IsCallback) {} doesn't he

the site default page issue


Hi All,

I have set the site default page is default.aspx and set that page allowed without user authentication

if we call http://www.mydomain.com/default.aspx, it is working without authentication

but if we are calling without filename (http://www.mydomain.com) , it is redirected to

the problem is, if we are calling without filename (http://www.mydomain.com), it should not redirect to login.aspx page

because the default.aspx page is not accecpted as the domain default page.

Notes : I have converted asp.net 2.0 to asp.net 4.0 web application. after conversion conly  this problem arises

Retain DropDown,TextBox's previously selected values after redirected from another page.


 Hi People, How are you all doing?

I have 2 pages one is SearchPage & It has DropDowns, textboxes to specify the search criteria. From the search result the user is redirected to another page when he clicks the hyperlink in the search result  where he fills in the information and again redirected to SearchPage. Now the SearchPage is posted back with no state i just want to retain the search criteria and display when user comes back. Please give me some suggestion how to get this done. I've used ViewState to save the values and check them in Page_Load but they are null.   



 Update: I've come up with this code. But the problem is The values are being retained but the Button_Click event is not being handled properly. When i Check the code even after this "DropDownList1.SelectedValue = Session["Name"].ToString();" DownList1.SelectedValue is EMPTY"" samw with DropDownList2 . please Suggest something


    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (IsControlsEmpty())
            if (SessionExist())
                DropDownList1.SelectedValue = Session["Name"].ToString()

Mysite Default Master Page



We have been using the mysite section of sharepoint for 6 months and have recently changed the default.master is there any quick way of changing all the users pages without losing anydata.

I know i can go into the Master Page library for the users, upload the new default.master and then set this as default within sharepoint designer, however this will be quite a lenghty task for me to complete for all our userbase.

Could you please advise if there is a quicker way to do this.

Deserialization issue with returned from web service

Hi, I have a VS 2008 C#  client using a proxy generated by the Service Reference tool from a schema for a (prob Java?) ASMX web service.  I got serialisation errors when I tried connecting to the service around<xs:date> date fields, and on inspecting the incoming XML discovered the date format was yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss.sss.   So 2 questions really.. 1) Is the schema I've been supplied with incorrect? 2)Is there a way to work around this, apart from manually editing the schema to xs:datetime and regenerating the classes?   Thanks MJ

calling a web service on a remote server from an ASPX page

hi, I want to call a web service on a remote server. I've done "add web reference" in my project, and VS2005 has created the .discomap and .WSDL in the App_Web_Reference folder. When I try add the namespace representing the web server (the name I created when I added the web reference) by "using XXXXX;" the code does not compile because XXXXX is not defined. Have I missed any steps? thanks, -me
