Changing the hash algorithm used for CreateUserWizard

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am rewriting my PHP website into C# .NET, and I need to be able to set the algorithm used by the CreateUserWizard / Membership Provider to SHA1 so that I can port all of the user accounts over without having to force them all to reset their passwords when this project is complete. At current glance it doesn't look like it is using SHA-1, and my Googlefoo is failing me.

Is there a way of telling the application to use SHA-1?

Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

Problem with changing language using culture info


I'm using the following msdn article to use different languages in my web application:


I'm following the instructions step by step in VS 2010, and it creates the resource files exactly how it's supposed to. 

However, when I run the program it just doesn't apply it. I don't see the different values from the resource file. 

If I leave my resource file name as sample.aspx.resx, it works. But when I change it to sample.aspx.en-us.resx, it doesn't work. I'm supplying culture from the aspx page's Culter and UICulture properties. I'm being very careful in choosing the correct file name, as that could be the issue,  but it just doesn't work. I also tried changing the culture in the backend code this way:

Changing direction of pop-ups/alerts in RTL

Changing from Local to WCF


I've been handed an application thats connection string implies a local host connection.

I want to make this connection a remote connection, to a database located on a Server.  I want the client and server to be able to communicate with one another remotely, instead of a local connection.

How does one create the Data Service, and establish end points to Server and Client?  Is it as simple as creating a contract (which I have limited knowledge on constructing), between the two locations, setting up the dataservice, security, and ratifying the 'connetions'?

A smidge of insight, please ;-)

Changing classic asp.net Menu to CssAdapterMenu


Hello Friends,

                     I have been using asp.net menu control that is programmatically binded at runtime and has n child node levels. Now i want to use CssAdapterMenu instead because the menu control contains more than 1000 menuItems(in the near future it can also be more 2000 menuItems) and has very slow response in IE 6 or IE 7.

                    Now my question is how should i change the classic asp.net menu to CssAdapterMenu. What should be the steps? Any samples example of n child node levels would be helpful


Tamper-Resistant Apps: Cryptographic Hash Algorithms Let You Detect Malicious Code in ASP.NET


Cryptographic hash algorithms produce fixed-length sequences based on input of arbitrary length. A given input always produces the same output, called a hash code. Using these algorithms, you can compute and validate hash codes to ensure that code running on your machine has not been tampered with or otherwise changed. ASP.NET provides a software mechanism for validating hash code fingerprints for every page requested by a client. In this article, the author shows how to use hash codes with ASP.NET applications to detect tampering and prevent malicious code from running when tampering is detected.

'An unexpected error has occurred' on upload after changing limit



I recently changed the max upload size for attachments to TFS work items on our SharePoint site.  I did this by going to the http://tfsserver1:8080/tfs/ProductCollection/WorkItemTracking/v1.0/ConfigurationSettingsService.asmx?op=SetMaxAttachmentSize URL and entering the new size in bytes.

This worked a treat, but not I cannot upload any documents to another site on the same server.

I can open and save documents that are already there, but when I click the 'Upload' button it gives a white page with 'An unexpected error has occurred.' on it.

Is there something else I have to set when I increase the upload limit for work items?


Changing folder name loses Person attributes


I have a custom folder content type. These folders have several attributes including text fields, choice, dates, and person lookups from AD. When I change the folder name, the folder will keep its date, choice and text box attributes, but lose the person attributes. If I change it back to its old name then it regains the person attributes. The ID is stays the same. One of the person fields is a required field, but that it still saves as an empty field. If anyone has a work around or even a suggestion as to what might be causing this it would help a lot.

Programmatically Changing the Profile Provider at Runtime


Dear All

I'm using one application but have multiple providers in my web.config for memberships, roles and profiles to allow my application to be used by different groups of users who need to connect to different databases.

This means I'm having to change the membership, role and profile providers on-the-fly in my code-behind files. So far I've taken care of the membership and roles a bit like this:

Dim RolePV As RoleProvider = Roles.Providers(GetSettingFromFile("Provider"))

However, I'm having trouble finding out how to do the same sort of thing for Profiles. I've looked at ProfileProvider and ProfileManager but I can't work it out how to access my the profile property that I've created in my web.config file called "ScreenSize". Normally you would just write Profile.ScreenSize to read or write to the property.

Please can you help me to understand how I access the profile property called ScreenSize by dynamically setting the profile provider first?

I'd be very grateful for any help or advice.

Many thanks
