Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I have a xml response that I receive from facebook and I am having trouble parsing it. I am not an expert at XML....

this is the response I get and it is the value of 'xmlResponse' in the procedure:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<fql_query_response xmlns="http://api.facebook.com/1.0/" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" list="true">

and I try parsing it like this:

Protected Overridable Function GetFacebookFromReader(ByVal xmlResponse As String) As FacebookShareStatDetails

Dim xmlDoc As New XmlDocument()

Dim Facebook As FacebookShareStatDetails




If xmlDoc.SelectSingleNode("link_stat") IsNot Nothing And Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(xmlDoc.SelectSingleNode("link_stat").SelectSingleNode("total_count

Parsing out result from SOAP Response envelope


Hi guys,

I built the following SOAP Request method and am trying to find out the best way to parse out just the relevant result data from the response below.

    protected void Test_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        string oRequest = "";
        oRequest = "<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv=\"http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/\" xmlns:com=\"http://com.remp.web.sas.tubeorder.type\">";
        oRequest = oRequest + "<soapenv:Header/>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "<soapenv:Body>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "<com:beginTransaction>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "<Long_1>10</Long_1>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "<String_2>BARCODE</String_2>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "<String_3>TUBEFIXRACKVAR</String_3>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "</com:beginTransaction>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "</soapenv:Body>";
        oRequest = oRequest + "</soapenv:Envelope>";

        //Builds the connection to the WebService.
        HttpWebRequest req = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8080/tubeorder-service/jse?wsdl");
        req.Headers.Add("SOAPAction", "\"http://tempuri.org/Register\"");
        req.ContentType = "text/xml; charset=\"utf-8\"";
        req.Accept = "text/xml";
        req.Method = "POST";


Response.BinaryWrite help needed


Hi all

Im new to .NET and stuck now, so i hope anyone can help my with my problem.

I have a MS SQL database where i have stored some documents as Binary data. I cant figure out how to retrieve them and show/download them in my browser.

I found some guides online and have try to put something together.


private void Write()
 int id = 0;
 string strID = Request.QueryString["id"];
 int.TryParse(strID, out id);

 var db = new ModelDataContext();
 var doc = db.DocumentDatas.Where(x => x.ID == id).FirstOrDefault();

 byte[] byteArray = File.ReadAllBytes(doc);


How do i fill the byteArray with the data?

Thanks in advance :)


Response.Redirect slow


I'm in the middle of migrating servers and on the new server Response.Redirect is extremely slow. It takes around 20 seconds for the browser to get the redirect. This is something that was quick on the existing server. It's an ASP.NET 2.0 application, both servers are running IIS6.

Additionally, if I "manually" do the redirect, it's fast. For example:

Existing way:


takes around 20 seconds on the new server

New way:

Response.Status = "302 Moved Temporarily";
Response.AddHeader("Location", url);

is fast on the new server.

Any ideas why Response.Redirect would be so slow on the new server?

Event not raised while parsing xml file



In Visual Studio 2010 ASP.NET 4.0

I want to write a procedure to validate a xml file with a xsd. I found some examples on the web but the one i chose does not work as attended. The example uses XmlReader with a XmlReaderSettings and a ValidationEventHandler.

Here is the code

Protected Sub VerifyDes(ByVal filename As String)

        Dim xslDes As XmlReaderSettings = New XmlReaderSettings()
        xslDes.Schemas.Add("", "http://www.mysite.com/xsd/ValidData.xml")
        xslDes.ValidationType = ValidationType.Schema
        xslDes.ValidationFlags = XmlSchemaValidationFlags.ReportValidationWarnings

        AddHandler xslDes.ValidationEventHandler, AddressOf xslDesValidationEventHandler

        Dim des As XmlReader = XmlReader.Create(filename, xslDes)

        While (des.Read())

        End While

    End Sub

    Protected Sub xslDesValidationEventHandler(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ValidationEventArgs)

        'some code here
    End Sub

I tested this procedure with a xml file which was well formed but contained some elements which were not conform to the xsd.

No event or error occured. It said the file was valid.

Then i tested with a badly formed file. A XmlException was raised but nothing happened with the ValidationEventHandler.

It seems lik

I need to open a new window with Response.Redirect, Is it possible?

no response when refreshing reportviewer


Hi guys, I've been struggling with this for some time now, but I can't figure out why it's not working. I got a gridview in which I'm selecting a specific row. This gives me a string back, which is used to load some data inside a datatable, using DAL The callback works and it's also giving the correct string to retrieve the wanted data. But when I'm trying to use this fresh data update my reportviewer (.rdlc) nothing happens. For now I'm testing the event with a simple button, but even with the button nothing happens. Does anyone know what I'm missing The DAL is working correct and I'm using .NET 3.5

<rsweb:ReportViewer ID="ReportViewer" runat="server" Font-Names="Verdana" 
                                 InteractiveDeviceInfos="(Collection)"  WaitMessageFont-Names="Verdana" WaitMessageFont-Size="14pt" >
        <LocalReport ReportPath="Office\Reporting\InvoiceReport.rdlc" />                                
    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        string strInvoiceId = "603663";

        tblInvoiceTableAdapter InvoiceAdapt = new tblInvoiceTableAdapter();
        TGU.tblInvoiceDataTable invoiceDt = InvoiceAdapt.GetIn

Adding a cookie to a response.redirect vs. httpWebRequest


Hello, I will try to be as clear as I can be.  I'm sure this question has been asked but I can't find a suitable answer for this particular situation.

I need to be able to redirect the browser to a new 3rd party page while at the same time supplying a cookie required for some form of authentication on the 3rd party site.

I have managed to get this to work in the following manner:


'SessionID is predetermined by another HttpWebRequest/Response  

Dim sessionCookie As New Cookie("ezproxy", sessionID.Substring(1), "/", ".someother.site")

Dim CookieJar As New CookieContainer


rRequest = HttpWebRequest.Create("where I want to go")

rRequest.CookieContainer = CookieJar

rRequest.Method = "GET"


'Make the request and get the response.

rResponse = rRequest.GetResponse()


'Save cookie(s)

If (rResponse.Cookies.Count <> 0) Then

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:

   <Test MyId="0987">
       <TestType id="11"></TestType>
       <TestType id="22"></TestType>

How can I create web service to do this.

Response.TransmitFile() Firefox problems


My company is in the final development stages for a web application that includes a couple of features that allow for uploading and downloading user document files.  We've recently identified a problem in these features when users download and view a document in Firefox.  The download and viewing work fine, but as soon as the user closes the document and attempts to navigate to a different page in the application, Firefox throws up a page that says:

 XML Parsing Error: not well formed

Location: (URL of page)

Line number: X, Column: X

[a snippet of markup from the page]


I've tried numerous variations on the code we're using to do the download, but they all center on the following:


        string path = Server.MapPath(UIUtils.GetRepositoryPath(custNm)) + fileId + ArtifactRevision.FileExt;
        FileInfo file = new FileInfo(path);
        if (!file.Exists)
            throw new ApplicationException("Missing repository file");

        fileName = fileName.Replace(' ', '_');
        Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + fileName);
        Response.AddHeader("Content-Length", file.Length.ToString());
        Response.ContentType = contType;

Writing Bitmap to Response.OutputStream - Generic Error Occured in GDI+



This is what I'm trying to do when I get the error on the server (it works on my local machine):

System.Drawing.Image image = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(filepath);
System.Drawing.Bitmap bmp = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(image); 

Response.ContentType = "image/bmp";
bmp.Save(Response.OutputStream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp);

I don't think it can be a permissions problem because this works on the server:

System.Drawing.Image image = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(filepath);
System.Drawing.Bitmap bmp = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(image);

Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg";
bmp.Save(Response.OutputStream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);

So how do I get this to work for a bitmap?
