RunWithElevatedPrivileges: ArgumentException - encodedValue

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

I have weird problem with SharePoint Foundation 2010.

I have code that return SPWeb. The method gets the relevant SPSite and takes out the specific SPWeb by its name.

GetWeb method is:

public SPWeb GetWeb()
{
  SPWeb _web = null;
  SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate()
  {
    _web = GetSite().AllWebs[SiteName];
    _web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;
  });
 
  return _web;
}

 

GetSite method is:

public SPSite GetSite()
{
  SPSite _site = new SPSite(RepositoryUrl) { AllowUnsafeUpdates = true };
  return _site;
}

A first chance exception of type 'System.ArgumentException' occurred in System.Windows.Forms.dll

  
I've read a bit about this error and maybe I have nothing to worry about.  BUT ... my simple little app gets 7 of these before it even gets to the first Dim statement in the Class Form1!  I found and followed instructions on how to have the Debugger intercept these exceptions but it seems that they are not being intercepted.  I only know that they have happened because of the messages in the Immediate Window.  In the Designer all I have is 5 Labels and 5 TextBoxes.   Any thoughts on how I could get to the cause of these messages? Thanks,  Bob

Handling ArgumentException: Illegal characters in path

  
How can I handle URLs with illegal characters such that they don't throw an unhandled exception? I tried an HttpModule but that doesn't catch the error. I'm using IIS6 and .Net 2.0.

System.ArgumentException: Illegal characters in path

  

Hi,

I am trying to download a file from a location and save it in another location using webclient.downloadfile:

This line is erroring out:

myWebClient.DownloadFile(RemoteUri & Files(i), Application.StartupPath & "\" & Files(i))

This is the value in RemoteUri & Files(i):

This is the value in Application.StartupPath & "\" & Files(i):

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\TestWiform\Testwiform.msi

What is the illegal character here?

Thanks in Advance

 


SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate(myCode){}); to add file to documentlibrary

  

I got a document library on which BreakRoleInheritance(false) was executed. I got a test-user which is allowed to view but not add or edit items. Nobody has rights to add an item. But now I got some custom code executed by the test-user which should allow him to add a new file to a documentlibrary.

SPFile newFile;

SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges(delegate()
                      {
                        newFile = docLib.RootFolder.Files.Add(
                          fileUrl, fileStream);
                      });
Even with elevated privileges the user gets in this line of code a "access denied" message. I'm guessing I'm trying to use the wrong approach so any help is appreciated.


Misspelling in ArgumentException exception description [VS 2010]

  

Exception: ArgumentException was unhandled.

Description: Value provided must be greater than equal to the minimum value and less than the maximum value.

I hope this'd be correct: Value provided must be greater than OR equal to the minimum value and less than the maximum value.


There is no knowledge that is not power.

But i have problem. if user is loged and if i try call method with RunWithElevatedPrivileges, then RunWithElevatedPrivileges cause call of GetRolesForUser. but in GetRolesForUser i use RunWithElevatedPrivileges and this cause new call of GetRolesForUser.... Any one know how can i avoid this recursion? and why RunWithElevatedPrivileges calls GetRolesForUser? i use custom role provider for asp.net site not sharepoint site. Thx

Is there a good way to test and debug these errors.  I constantly get them emailed to me from my production site but I can not duplicate them.  Below is the entire error.

Error: Sys.ArgumentException: Value must not be null for Controls and Behaviors.

  

I have a fairly complex web application that loads UserControls dynamically based on what section the user selects.

Me.pnlBodyCell.Controls.Clear()
Me.pnlBodyCell.Controls.Add(Page.LoadControl(PortalInfo.CurrentSectionURL))

The UserControls contain RoundedCornersExtender and CollapsiblePanelExtender controls as well as UpdatePanel controls.
After updating to the latest AJAX Framework Beta, I am now seeing the following JavaScript error:

Has anyone else seen this issue and does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks!

Deployment Failure - System.ArgumentException: Illegal characters in path.

  

I have created an asp.net MVC3 website I would like to upload via Webmatrix. The website uses a database I set up in webmatrix (SQL Compact Databases). I am using an ado.net data entity model to interface with the database. The website runs properly on my local machine, but when I attempt to deploy it via webmatrix I recieve the following error:

System.ArgumentException: Illegal characters in path.
   at System.IO.Path.CheckInvalidPathChars(String path)
   at System.IO.Path.IsPathRooted(String path)
   at Microsoft.WebMatrix.Deployment.DeployFilesFilter.ApplyFilterForSqlCeInternal()
   at Microsoft.WebMatrix.Deployment.DeployFilesFilter.ApplyFilterForSqlCe()
   at Microsoft.WebMatrix.Deployment.DeployFilesFilter.ApplyFilters()
   at Microsoft.WebMatrix.Deployment.MsDeployWorker.Execute(Boolean pullback)

 After a little experimentation I have determined that ths problem appears to be linked to my web.config connection string for the databases (With this string removed the deploy error no longer occurs).
