Overwrite xml request

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have an application that is requesting a certain xml file. I would like to take the request for that xml file and have it dynamically create the xml output while for other xml files it just passes back the file from the location it is requesting. I am not exactly sure how to do this any help would be appreciated.

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

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

Image file does not want to overwrite.


 I am having an issue with saving an image file to a temp file on the server after it is cropped.  I upload the image on one page and then modify it on another with the option to rotate or crop.  I have the crop feature set as a fixed size and am using JavaScript to accomplish this.  I am getting an error when I try to save the file as the original file name to overwrite it with the modified image file.  I know this has got to be something simple that I am overlooking, but I have been looking at it for a while and can't seem to spot the problem.  I currently have the image saved as "studentid_temp.jpg" in the temp folder.  I want to overwrite this file with the new cropped version of the photo.  Below is the code that i'm using, which gives me the error: A generic error occurred in GDI+.

When I change the file ending to something different (like studentid_temp1.jpg) the new cropped image saves without a problem because it does not have to overwrite the original. 

I have set the permissions on the folder to allow read/write functionality.

Any ideas to easily accomplish this overwrite?  I thought overwrite was kind of the default when a file came across with the same name, or is it because I still have the image open from the display (how would I fix that, if that's

HTTP Pipelines: Securely Implement Request Processing, Filtering, and Content Redirection with HTTP


ASP.NET is a flexible and extensible framework for server-side HTTP programming. While most people think of ASP.NET in terms of pages served, there is a lower-level infrastructure sitting beneath this page model. The underlying plumbing is based on a pipeline of app, module, and handler objects. Understanding how this pipeline works is key if you want to get the most out of ASP.NET as an HTTP server platform, while making your process more efficient, and keeping your server secure. This article introduces the architecture of the pipeline and shows how you can use it to add sophisticated functionality to an ASP.NET-based app.

FileUpload Class SaveAs, how can you overwrite?

Hello all,

I'm trying to use 2.0 class, FileUpload. 
Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Class FileUpload

Anyway, in my code can save the file to the server

FileUpload1.SaveAs(SavePath + FileName)

Problem is I can't find a way to overwrite the file.  When I try and run the program again is says the file is already in use that a process has access to it.

Is thre a proper way to release control of whatever it grabbing hold of it?  In .Net I don't have to destroy my objects right?
Or is there a way to specificly overwrite the file? It seems that SaveAs does that.  Just trying to figure out why I can upload this text file, but sometimes only once and then I have to code in to check to see if it exists then rename it.

Web Service that will receive xml request and send xml response


I am trying to create a web service that can do the following functionality:

Request XML 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Authentication UserName="test" Password="test" MyId="0987">

Response XML - After authenticating request xml from client send them back the following response:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
   <Test MyId="0987">
       <TestType id="11"></TestType>
       <TestType id="22"></TestType>

How can I create web service to do this.

Anonymous Web Site receives "The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized"


I set up a test website on my local box and was able to access sharepoint search using the querySearch web service from SP.  After I got it all working properly I transferred the code to the target website that is set up with anonymous access for all people on the fab floor.  However from this website I keep getting the 401 error.  It can't be SP because the same code worked from my local website "localhost".  Any suggestions?  we don't want to have to have the fab people log in so we can't not have the box anonymous.  I would appreciate any suggestions very much!!!
