FBA Issues and Questions

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi All - I'm trying to get FBA working for WSS 3.0 with custom membership and role provider against Novell LDAP.  I believe the providers are working correctly because I'm able to validate users, search for users, search for Novell groups, etc. in WSS.  I also created a standalone web app to test that the providers are returning the expected values.  But I'm seeing WSS behavior that I would think is unexpected but fear may be intentional. 


When I add Novell groups to my WSS site and then try to login as a Novell user with group membership in those groups, I am unable to do so.  Is this supposed to work?  If so, can you offer any clues as to where/how I may search for the error?


If it's not working and isn't supposed to be working, what is the purpose of the role provider?  Do any options exist that avoid having to maintain all users directly in WSS?


Thanks for your help!

C# Interview Questions
This is a list of questions I have gathered from other sources and created myself over a period of time from my experience, many of which I felt where incomplete or simply wrong. I have finally taken the time to go through each question and correct them to the best of my ability. However, please feel free to post feedback to challenge, improve, or suggest new questions. I want to thank those of you that have contributed quality questions and corrections thus far.

There are some question in this list that I do not consider to be good questions for an interview. However, they do exist on other lists available on the Internet so I felt compelled to keep them easy access

Linq qry with order by basic questions


I have never tried a group by with linq, now I do and I'm stuck.

SELECT COUNT(tb_Mailer_Smses.Id) AS [cnt], tb_Mailer_mailing.Id As [Id]
,SUM( CASE WHEN tb_Mailer_smses.DLRStatus = 200 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) As [Delivered]
FROM tb_Mailer_mailing INNER JOIN
tb_Mailer_Smses ON tb_Mailer_mailing.Id = tb_Mailer_Smses.MailingId
WHERE tb_Mailer_mailing.ApplicationId = 1

Is there some one who can me show me the convertion process ?

Questions about getter and setter


I created a getter and Setter in Visual Basic. I have some questions though. Please look at the code below.
Here are my questions.

A.) At line 1 below, should "pieces" be declared as Private?
B.) In the IDE at lines 4 and 7 the IDE keeps changing those variables to uppercase so that the property name "Pieces" is the
    same as the variable name "pieces".Should I instead define the integer pieces with an underscore: _pieces ?
That is the only way I can get around the IDE forcing the variable to become uppercase.


1  Dim pieces As Integer

2  Public Property Pieces() As String
3  Get

4  Return pieces
5  End Get

6 Set (ByVal values As String)
7   pieces=value
8 End Set
9 End Property

Versioning Issues With Optional Arguments

One nice new feature introduced in C# 4 is support for named and optional arguments . While these two features are often discussed together, they really are orthogonal concepts. Let's look at a quick example of these two concepts at work. Suppose we have a class with one method having the following signature. // v1 public static void Redirect( string url, string protocol = "http" ); This hypothetical library contains a single method that takes in two parameters, a required string url and an optional string protocol . The following shows the six possible ways this method can be called. HttpHelpers.Redirect( "http://haacked.com/" ); HttpHelpers.Redirect(url: "http://haacked.com/" ); HttpHelpers.Redirect( "http...(read more)

Issues with Visual Studio 2010 editor


hi all,

I am having a weird problem with VS 2010. I am using the premium edition.

It seems that none of the asp controls <asp:..> tag are recognized by the editor. I keep getting a green underline under each control name. To check this, I have created a brand new web site targeting .NET framework 4.0 and even in the auto-generated pages, none of the asp controls is recognized. I am also unable to see the properties of any control if I click inside the tag (at an attribute). All I get is the ID of the button and the tag <HTML ELEMENT>! Furthermore, when I drop an ASP control from the toolbox, the attribute "ID" is not generated. Only when I switch to the design view that I can get to see the properties of the control and the ID is set automatically. The message for the green underline says: Element 'Button' is not a known element. This can occur if there is a compilation error in the Web Site, or the web.config file is missing.

Does anyone know what is going on?





Session Variable issues


Hello everyone,

I ran into an issud to day with the follwoing code.  The strPanelOrder session variable is false, however, once it goes into the next if statement and sets the strTrimOrder to True, it changes the strPanelOrder session varialbe to true as well.  Why is this and how to I stop that from happening?

If Session(strPanelOrder) Is "False" Then
                If (strItemNumber.Length() = 10) And (strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "FS" Or strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "FC" Or strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "DS" Or strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) = "DC") Then
                    Session(strPanelOrder) = "True"
                End If
End If
If Session(strTrimOrder) Is "False" Then
               If (strItemNumber.Substring(4, 1) = "T") And (strItemNumber.Substring(0, 2) <> "AC") And (strItemNumber <> "Length") Then
                    Session(strTrimOrder) = "True"
                End If
End If


Thanks in advance for taking a look at this.



Session issues with IE8



I am trying to invoke a window using the following commands:

Response.Write("<script>" & vbCrLf)"

Response.Write(window.open('" & url & "','','toolbar=0,status=1,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,menubar=1');" & vbCrLf)"


The problem however is that on IE8 the session object is not carried over to this new window. I get "Nullpointerexception" when I try to retrieve the connection object from the session. It works on IE6 though.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Migrating aspnet tables to dev server - having issues



We're trying to migrate a one of our apps to our dev server for testing and development, but we're having problems with the membership functionality. We can add users, but there seems to be a disconnect with roles. We can query the aspnet_users table and find the new user in there, but when we query the aspnet_usersinroles table, that user id is not present.

We're also unable to run the Roles.GetUsersInRole("somerole") method. It returns 0 records. When I run Roles.ApplicationName, it returns the correct name, so .NET should be passing the correct app name.

We're just a little baffled. If anyone could shed some light on what could be the issue, we would appreciate it.

Thanks! :)
