Commerce with ASP.NET: Leverage the Authentication and Form Validation Features of ASP.NET to Bolste

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

If you're planning to build an e-commerce site, you'll be pleased to see that ASP.NET makes it easier than ever. Existing controls can be used and extended to add a great deal more functionality than you might expect. In this article, forms-based authentication is used to verify the identity of users and make certain areas of the site, such as the check-out page, inaccessible to unauthorized users. The power and flexibility of validation controls are demonstrated using the CustomValidator control to connect to a Web Service that verifies addresses. A shopping cart is then implemented in ASP.NET using the DataGrid, and finally, credit card authorization and billing are performed.

ASP.NET: Selectively Enable Form Validation When Using ASP.NET Web Controls


Sometimes the extra controls that come with Visual Studio .NET can be a bit inflexible or they just don't provide enough functionality or flexibility for all situations. The ASP.NET form validation controls, while powerful and easy to use, require that the entire page be valid before it's submitted back to the server. Through the use of the new object-oriented features of Visual Basic .NET, it is possible to extend their functionality to overcome this limitation. This article tells you how and helps you decide when it's a good idea to keep validation on the client and when you'd be better off disabling it.

Form based authentication Sharepoint 2007 gets redirected to login page

Hi We have sharepoint 2007 site deployed on Windows server 2008, IIS 7.0.  We extended the web application to enable forms based authentication referring to link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb975136(office.12).aspx#MOSS2007FBAPart1_Intro, we selected Kerberos instead of NTLM, behavior is like, when user tries to login into the site using OOB login.aspx, user again gets redirected to the login page. We tried to extend the web application again but this time we selected NTLM, but this time farm account (also is application pool identity) is not able login and exhibits same behavior as above, but for other users we are able to login. Has anyone come across this behavior? can anyone please guide me in correct the behavior? Regards, RK  Radhakrishna

Form Validation, BindingGroup, CommandBinding, Disabling Commit Button

Hi, I've been struggling with this for a few days and I couldn't get a clear and simple answer anywhere. Now that I've fixed the problem on my end, I figured I would share. The approach is about disabling a "Commit" button (Save/Apply/OK/whatever) whenever an error exists in the form. Basically, I have a form with several different controls (textbox, combobox, checkbox to name a few). All of them are bound to a custom object within my code, that I referenced using "RootGrid.DataContext = myObjectInstance". They also use BindingValidationRules, so the user is warned that they have wrong data in there. There's plenty of information about how to achieve this on the internet - but the real question mark is: how can I disable a button if there are errors in the form? First, go ahead and make those control validations work. For example, write a ValidationRule for a textbox to make sure it's only numbers in there, and then another ValidationRule for another textbox that ensures no digits are contained. Once again, google is full of examples on how to achieve this. Then, you need to group all of those controls into a BindingGroup. Before doing so, we will design a ValidationRule that will ensure the BindingGroup is free of validation errors:   public class ErrorFreeBindingGroup : ValidationRule { private string _errorMessage; public str
