Knowing the event occured in user control in current page




      My web application has user control which uses third party controls called Devexpress controls. The user control is a menu  and is part of the Master page. It is placed there because this needs to be available in all the pages. My user controls raises a even on item clicked. Now, My question is that Is there any way to know that the event has occurred in page_load of the current page in which I am in?

How to process data AFTER page is completely loaded for the user?


I have some logging that has to be done, which are some database update or inserts.

However this logging is of no importance to the user, so I only want to process the data/logs after the page is completed for the user.
As of now, if I process the data while the page is loading, I go from 1.4 to 2.0 speed (server side time processing of code), which is quite a bit comparing it is of no use to the user.

So I want this code only executed after that the page is complete.

I've been checking out Ajax, async pages etc, but the problem is it still gets executed before the page is rendered to the client, which means the client will have to wait longer then it is not being processed.

I've been checking out Threadpool.queueBackgroundWorker, however if I get it correct, this will still be executed before the page is shown to the user, as it has to complete before the prerender.

Then I thought about creating a new thread, and do the processing there, which would not have my page waiting to complete the data/logging.
However when I have 100 or 200 users loading pages at the same time, then that would mean I would be creating 200 threads on those loads, which I doubt will be good for performance. So if I want to solve this, I would have to create my own threadpool and only assign for example a max of 40 threads to it which can pr

Blank Managing My Links Page for Just One User



I've got a single user who's not able to manage his links in MOSS 2007. The links I speak of are gotting to via http://<<your:mysite>>/_layouts/myquicklinks.aspx. Other users have no issue.

I read somewhere that this might be caused by the user in question having added an improperly formated link. My issue is how can I check for that condition and correct it? Any thoughst would be much appreciated.





User Control not accessing the value of the properties send to it from the aspx page.


I have a dynamic accordion on a page. Set its datasource to an object of paged data source.The user control is in the accordions content template. When i was writing code the properties were showing but after giving the values of databases as


<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname1")%>' Property2='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname2")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>


but the values shows null, these properties are shown as textboxes text property by user control.

MoreOver when I checked the values of database Items.So i made a textbox instead of usercontrol here as

<asp:TextBox ID="txtTest" runat="server" Text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Columname1")%>'></asp:TextBox>

It is showing the correct value. And if i pass the value directly it is also showing correctly like

<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1="XYZ")%>' Property2="ABC")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>

. where I am wrong

the problem is eval is not passing the value to usercont

Long execution times for Search pages even after 4th or 5th user has accessed the same page.

Hi Guys We have a Sharepoint 2010 farm with two NLB web fronts ends, a Index server and a two box SQL cluster. The same problem also occurs on a dev box which has Sharepoint 2010 and SQl server running on the same single box. When a user access the search or advanced search page we get long execution times of between 15 and 30 seconds.  The strange thing is that the user will have a slow response the first time, then they are fine for a period of an hour or two and then they hit the slow response again.  Below i have copied info from the developer dashboard.  Does anyone have a suggestion of where to start tackiling this issue.

I need to add a "link" or "button" to the User Profile page (userdisp.aspx).  In SP2007, I had a custom feature that would forward the user to a custom aspx page, but that doesn't appear to work in 2010.  Is there a recommended method of customizing the User Profile page in 2010?

How to Create a Curriculum Vitae For every user on there profile page?

Hi, I have to create a Curriculum Vitae on everyones users profile page so they can fill it in and afterwards we can do searches on it to see the experience of our people. This has to be done in a webpart. All ideas are welcome... i have no idea how i need to start on this.. i was thinking of making a list and saving all data of everyuser in the list (but if i put a webpart on the profile page i guess i will only have 1 list for all users or not?). Or maybe creating a wiki with all the userprofiles and then a webpart that query's the wiki.. but will the search work then?   What would be the best sollution?  I'm working with sharepoint 2010 Enterprise Thanks a lot!!!   TIM

current user identity in custom security trimmer

The crux of my problem is that I want to impersonate  a user’s NTLM credentials in the context of a SharePoint custom security trimmer to execute HttpWebRequests to check user access to URLs.  When accessing WindowsIdentity.GetCurent() in the security trimmer, the System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity object returns the identity of the application pool running the search query service, NOT the currently logged in user.   When accessing System.Threading.Thread.CurrentPrinciple.Identity in the security trimmer, the Microsoft.IdentityModel.Claims.ClaimsIdentity object of the current logged in user is returned.  However, there is a catch.  …   If I execute the following code in a .NET web application, the cast of the ClaimsIdentity to a WindowsIdentity succeeds because the identity has the authentication type of NTLM.    WindowsIdentity winId = (WindowsIdentity)System.Threading.Thread.CurrentPrincipal.Identity; WindowsImpersonationContext wic = winId.Impersonate(); request.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials; //access means a response comes back when a request is made to the url using (HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse()) { returnStatus = true; } wic.Undo(); However, when I execute the same code in the context of the SharePoint security trimmer (the search query service li
