Link to css file is two times in web page, css is not working



When I am building and running a webform, the link to a css file is two times in the head.
And the css is not working, can any one help me please.
The code is:

In the view source of the webpage:

   Home - MKB Databasebeheer
</titel><link href="App_Themes/MKB/MKB.css" rel="stylesheet" type=""text/css" /><link
hred="App_Themes/MKB/MKB.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" /><style type="text">

The code in the master page is:

 <head runat="server">
  <title>Mkb Databasebeheer</title>
  <link href="App_Themes/MKB/Mkb.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

The code in web.config is:

<page theme="MKB" masterPageFile="~/MKBDatabasebeheer.master: maintainScrollPositionOnPostBack="true" />

I hope that it is clear to you what I have done, and what I have done wrong?



Launch CMD File From ASPX Page


My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.


We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.


Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?

The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.

Page Title from Resource file...



I have Resource file...

I am using following code for Display Lable Text...

<asp:Label ID="lblName" runat="server" Text="<%$ Resources:resource,NAME %>"></asp:Label>

and I want to use that name for page title...

so I used "me.page.resources.resource.NAME" in code behind page.

 but I want to use that NAME in

<%@ Page Language="VB"

Link goes to next page but url doesn't change?


I have a text input to get a 'roomID' and an ASP button that calls an 'enterRoom' function:

roomID:<asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="roomID"></asp:TextBox>
                <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Enter Room!" OnClick="enterRoom" />

In my head tags I have my enterRoom Sub:
    <script runat="server">
        Sub enterRoom(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
            Server.Transfer("users/room.aspx?roomID=" & Request.Form("roomID"))
        End Sub

Now when I click that button it essentially goes to the right page in all ways but the URL stays as my default.aspx instead of changing to users/room.aspx?roomID=23423. I've tried it in IE and Firefox with the same results. Is this something I'm not understanding about Server.Transfer or why is this happening and how do I fix it?

Extra file is included on the Page directive inherits =



I am trying to understand where the additional file name is coming from in my Page directives Inherits

attribute like so :

inherits ="Track_Milestones2, App_Web_techsrvcs_track_milestones2.aspx.cdcab7d2"

Is the result of this app being published on my local server at one time or could this

page have been compiled on a server ?

Thanks for your insights !

My site link on my home page.



One of the user got My owa link in place of my site on the my home page ( go to my site --> my home --> top right corner shows My owa insead of my site ) and he wants to edit that my owa link now. first of all i dont know how he got that My owa link in the place of my site on my home page. When he surfs any other page than he is getting my site on all other pages. so he is just getting My owa link in place of my site only on the my home page.

At the first glanse, i think it would be master page issue but if that would be the case than it shold apply all the users but this is happening just for one user and we are not using custom master page.

Please help.


Trying to get to a page via an email link. Could the sitemap be stopping this?


I had this working.  I would email a link to a page (i.e. Work.aspx), and using the code below, the user would be routed to the login page and then sent  to Work.aspx after logging in.

But since I added a site map this isn't working.  I always go directly to my home page.  If I set Work.aspx as my start page in VS it works, but not if I click a link in the email.

Any thoughts?

How to get current page file name?


I am trying to get the current page file name that i access to.
Lets say i am at test.aspx page, i want it to return me "test" file name.
I tried to use this.Page.toString(), it returned me "ASP.test_aspx" which is like half correct....
but i would like to get only "test".

2nd question, this.Page.toString() will always return me in a format of ASP.[filename]_[fileextention]?
If that's the case, maybe i can use splilt function to get the file name i want if there aren't any better solution than that.

Consistently running out of page file memory with full text indexer

Using MS SQL Server 2008 SP1 x64 Standard Edtion on Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise, I'm about to full-text index for the first time 1 table and 2 views. The table contains about 250'000 entries with a data space of 180 MB. As soon as I activate the full text indexing, the fdhost.exe task starts to consume slowly but surely all the available page file space (this can be easily watched using the Resource Monitor and the Commit Charge graph on the memory tab). Once all the virtual memory has been consumed, the server becomes unusable since it can't open any new windows any more, and RDP stops working. The machine specs are as follows: 12 GB of RAM 80 GB free on hard disk out of 136 GB 8 CPUs Custom size paging file with sizes between 24 GB - 60 GB (originally, this was system managed size, but then the server ran out of memory sooner) Max SQL server memory set to 6 GB (first 10 GB, then 8 GB) I've set the max fulltext crawl range to 8. During the indexing, the 8 CPUs are bit busy for a while, but not excessively. What is astonishing is that there is almost no use of physical memory during the indexing (I can see an increase from 2 GB to 3 GB which still leaves plenty of RAM available). Does anybody have an idea how I can convince fdhost.exe to consume physical memory and leave the paging memory alone? Or what else can I try?

Read a text file on another server from a web page

How do I read/write a text file on another server from a web page. I get the error "Access to the path '//Server2/mydatafiles/test.txt' is denied". I do not get the error if I am running the browser on the server where the files exist. I think I need to set permissions on the destination server in some way.   Can you help? Thanks  

"The file is not checked out" on page Postback

Hi there, I have a Publishing site with the Pages library set to "Require documents to be checked out".  As an administrator or member of the site, when i minimise/restore webparts on my page, then perform a postback operation (via some webpart on my page) i get an error saying:  The file is not checked out.  You must first check out this document before making changes. Its as if during the postback after minimising/restoring a webpart SharePoint wants to save that state! How do I stop this from happening?  Is there a personalization setting i am missing?   P.S. Here is a dummy postback operation if you'd like to test it, just paste it into a CEWP: <a id="Test" href="javascript:__doPostBack('Test','')">Test Postback</a>  

Form input to output as a link on the display page (need help please)

 I have a form, the form works great and displays the information perfectly on a designated display page I have set up from its database.  One problem, I want to display it as a link to the site instead of how it is now, just plain text. Thus the user would put in the text box the site and hit submit and the site would appear of the display page.  Can anyone please assist me on this, and where to drop the hyperlink control? in the form page? or in the display page?    Below is my form code page:     <p><strong><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">International Access Entry      Form</font></strong></p><p><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Please enter information      international contact information below.
