Session or Request in class without passing as param

I'd like to be able to reference the asp.net objects Session, Request, from a procedure without passing them in as parameters all the time. Is there a way to do this. For example, now I have namespace xx { public class ContextPT { public static string GetSession(System.Web.SessionState.HttpSessionState inSession) { StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(1000); string nameType; string value; foreach (string s in inSession.Keys) { nameType = s + " " + inSession[s].GetType().ToString(); value = inSession[s].ToString(); sb.AppendLine(nameType + ": " + value); // dataRow(new string[] {nameType, value}); } return sb.ToString(); } } } somewhere else this.lContext.Text = ContextPT.GetSession(Session); I'd like to call it like this "ContextPT.GetSession()" and have GetSession know how to find the Session object.  I know this does not seem like a big deal in this case, but I have reasons.

Passing ViewModel (containing request parameters) across controllers


Pls. pardon my ignorance. I have few questions based on following scenario:

I have a LoginController with following methods:

 public ActionResult Login()
        return View();

    public ActionResult Login(UserObject user)
     Calling Besiness Service to Validate User againts DB (Using Repository)... 

        if (success)
            return RedirectToAction("Search", "Search");
            ModelState.AddModelError("", "The user name or password provided is incorrect.");
        return View(user);

After successful login, I have to present a Search screen. I have a SearchController with following methods:


Passing service end point credential in request

I need to call a service end point protected behind a security gateway (non-ms technology from IBM), so there are credentials for the gateway and credentials for the service end points, how can I pass these two sets of credential in the service call?



Dear gentlemen and ladies of the Microsoft Dynamic Data Team,

Mr. Steve Naughton says (and I hope so) that there might be chances that you read the posts published in this forum: I really hope so.

If that were the case then I am formally requesting to you in providing a "real answer" to my question:

I want to customize a dynamic data page (the details one) so I can have access to the data it has been already gathered from the end user UI (details.aspx) and use it to pass this same data to the following controls/pages that I am going to display next time to the end user.

For instance:

I have a screen with different types of data in it: texts, numbers, dates, check boxes, radio buttons and dropdownlists that has been filled with data by the end user. I want now to reset all fields exept the dropdownlist of which I'd like to keep the previously chosen values(the very same thing you do between dropdownlist of List.aspx ad Details.aspx). Even with FoxPro I could do that because data and controls were available there. It was as simple as setting carrying on to true.


I have found my

view state vs request parameters


If  the view state is the data entered into the form fields then they are supposed to be available in the request parameters or request body. Then why would we need view state for?


Unique ID throughout entire request



I am hoping somene here could advise me on a better solution to my present problem.  First a little background information on the application. 

I have a web application using the 3.5 framework.  The structure of this application is as follows: UI -> WebService   -> Business Layer -> DataAccess Layer.   What I want to accomplish is for every request (click on a link or button) have a unique identifer that follows this request through its entire lifecycle.  This unique identifer can be accessible anywhere within this request.  We use Response.Redirects which could easily be changed to Server.Transfers (although I do not want to do that) but  the problem lies with the web service calls.  Currently, a GUID is set in the ApplicationRequest.  This GUID checks for a guid value in the RawURL and if so, assigns this value to a HttpContext Item.  If not, HttpContext.Items gets a new one created.  However, this idea is wrong and will need to be revisisted.  The bigger problem is with the web service calls.  Without changing every web service method signature, and every call for that matter, is there a way of getting this GUID there.  I created a web method in every web service so that each time I instantiate a web service object in the UI, before calling any

Passing Linq Statement between master and content page


I usually work with windows forms, and am just starting to work with ASP.Net, so appologies if this is a dumb question!

I have a master page which has a search button on it. The results of this are built up using a Linq statement and if there are any results, I want to display the results in a contents page.

On the masterpage, I have the following code:

Private _res

    Public Overridable ReadOnly Property SearchRes()
            Return _res
        End Get
    End Property

 Private Sub DoSearch()
   'some code to get a linq result

    If res.Any Then
            _res = res
            Server.Transfer("SearchResults.aspx", True)
            'no results
            LabelNoRes.Visible = True
        End If
 End Sub

On the SearchResults.aspx page I have this code.

Dim m As pxSite = CType(Page.Master, MasterPage)
        If m.SearchRes IsNot Nothing Then
            Label1.Text = "Results found = " & m.SearchRes.Count
        End If

m.searchRes is always nothing. 

What am I doing wrong here?


System.Security.SecurityException: Request for the permission of type 'System.Web.AspNetHostingPerm


Good Day all,

Having an issue with an outside user accessing my IIS7 box. I do not have this problem when running the website from my host machine. I found this post: Http://forums.asp.net/t/1371394.aspx. I assure you that this is not a solution because I am not storing any of my files on a network share. 

What do you think my approach should be. 

I already have read rights to IIS user to my BIN folder. 

Thanks for the help.

IIS request filtering module


Hi folks,

I have migrated my web application to iis 7.5 Now I am using windows 7 as dev machine.

the problem is it takes several seconds to download a single page into web browser now. It contains only 300 records.

Everything is ok on prod website though. Prod version contains up to 200000 records .I can't also use code profile tool of red gate to analyze possible bottlenecks since the software in question can't restart IIS. No errors in IIS logs. I am using ISAPI Rewrite 3 filter by Helicon to apply some URL rewriting rules. I am thinking about conflict between ISAPI rewriting rules and default IIS 7.5 request filtering rules, since the IIS request filtering module gets a higher priority than even the built-in IIS 7.5 rewriter module. Is it possible to tweak the module through web.config so that priority is given to ISAPI rewriting rules or something like that?

Frankly, I spent several days to figure out solution. No success...

I've also deployed the application on IIS 5.1. Everything works fine. Any ideas about possible solution for IIS 7.5?

How to implement custom HttpContext for each request under class that implements IHTTPHandler


Hello All,

I created an application and implemented IHTTPHandler for all incoming request ending with ".aspx" extension.

Under "ProcessRequest" module, I am creating an instance of HttpContext (with URL attributes different from my application's URL i.e. if I am working on localhost then speciying Yahoo.com as its URL) and assigning it to "context" which comes as method argument.

After redirection, an error is generated. Also, the custom HTTPContext is not passed to the requested page (default.aspx, in my case.)

Code is as follows.

    Public Sub ProcessRequest(ByVal context As System.Web.HttpContext) Implements System.Web.IHttpHandler.ProcessRequest
            Dim requestedUrl As String
            Dim targetUrl As String
            Dim urlLength As Integer
            'Save settings which will be used while redirecting to appropriate page
            requestedUrl = context.Request.RawUrl
            If requestedUrl.IndexOf("?") >= 0 Then
                targetUrl = requestedUrl.Substring(0, requestedUrl.IndexOf("?"))
                targetUrl = requestedUrl
            End If
            If targetUrl = Nothing Or targetUrl.Length = 0 Then
                targetUrl = requestedUrl
            End If

Passing Data to a Cell in Excel



I have a webpage that is created in Visual Studio 2008 and programmed in C#.

I have a web form that prompts the user to enter a value into a text box.  For now, I do not have any validation on that field (I will be adding that later).

I need to pass the value that the user has entered to cell C1 of the excel spreadsheet (user_info.xls).

I understand that using excel is not ideal, but unforutnately need to try to make this work with the excel spreadsheet.

I do not have any code for this yet, because I honestly do not know how to begin.

The action of poulating the excel spreadsheet will be intialized from the On Click event of a Submit button.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your assistance,


Passing HTML values from asp.net to asp


 We have a part of our website which is coded in classic asp. This takes the values of a login page (asp.net)  which uses 

<input type="text" /> to hold the values and then submit them to the asp page using the following line of code -

<input type="submit" value="Login" onClick="this.form.action='<%= SubmitURL() %>/login/login_user.asp?Type=Login&amp;this.form.encoding='application/x-www-form-urlencoded'; this.form.submit();" />

The asp page then retrieves the values using the code -

Value1 = Request.Form("Val1")

We now have a requirement to pre-populate the login values to provide an automated login process but don't want to change the older asp code. When we try to assign values to the input text in the asp.net page by assigning the value runat="server" the login fails as it does not seem to carry over when the page is submitted.

Is there a way where we can pre-populate the html textbox without making it unavailable to the asp page?
