Posted By:      Posted Date: August 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi all,
I am working on an application where many hyperlinks ( <a hrefs> like <a href=/web/index.html ) are used. The website is working fine on live server. The previous link goes to wwww.mysite.com/web/index.html which fine. But when i setup the website on my local machine. The above link goes to
http://localhost/web/index.html which is not correct path and I get resource not found error. If i correct the path in browser like this :

Panel Layout and Visual Studio issue - what is recommended path?



I am working with .NET 3.5 (VS 2008). In one of my tabs, I have added two panels. Each panel takes up the whole tab area (dock=full).  At any one time only one panel is visible. Depending on what the user does, one panel will be hidden while the other is visible.  My problem is that when I am in Visual Studio in the design mode, I can only see the panel that was added last.  The first panel is below that, so I can't work with the panel to add other components (buttons, labels, ect).  I tried to right-click the top panel and select "Send to back" but that does not make the bottom panel visible.  The only thing I can do is undock the top panel and move it to the side while I work on the underneath panel.

Does anyone know of a better way to access the underneath panel in design mode or if there is a more appropriate way to create stacked panels (think deck of cards).

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated - Peter

IsapiModule Error 500 Issue


I am about exhausted trying to figure out this error:

HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error

Description: The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

Error Code: 0x8007007b

Notification: ExecuteRequestHandler

Module: IsapiModule

Requested URL: http://localhost:80/ReportServer

Physical Path: c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.2\Reporting Services\ReportServer

When I enable Failed Request Tracing Rules and view the log output I am supposing that the actual problem is in the 2nd call where there are 2 backslashes before the actual filename in the specified path:


CALL_ISAPI_EXTENSION DllName="C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\\aspnet_isapi.dll"


MVC2 issue - Stuck. Trying to create a cms with nested partials


I am currently trying to display multiple items on a single page. I am not sure as to how to tackle this. What I have is a database table that has all the page data in. I have this run as a PagesController and this works fine. However what I would like to do is, if say the Products page is selected via the menu, I want to pull back not only the Products page html but also get all the products, and even be able to pull them through via category. I was trying to use a partial view, but I can't get it to work. The same would be for other pages, having partial views to display the other content, ie if Gallery is selected, the page html for Gallery shows and it then can push to a partial view that pulls all the gallery images from the gallery db table and so on. 

Maybe I am tackling this the wrong way. I have the pages stored in the db to allow for a CMS system I have setup. Maybe I need to use models for all the other items(Products, Gallery, Videos and such) and use the partial for the page html?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am confused.

Creating a user friendly alias for the website path


 Hello mates,

I am hosting my ASP.NET application on a Windows 2003 Server.

To browse to my application one has to type the path :http://serverName/applicationName

I want users to only type  applicationName on the web adress area.I believe there is something to do with alias and CNAME on DNS records that can adress this.

Any help on how to go about doing this will be highly appreciated.

User validation Issue in xlsx file

Multiple Paramatized Threading issue


I need the funcitonality to have two methods run concurrently of each other and the parent thread (aka the method that makes these two calls) to halt until BOTH are done. After the threads are done, I need to perform logic on the returns of the method, so it is essential for both of them to be complete before the parent thread continues. I have searched the internet and tried varous attacks, and I always come up with the same result, this being the parent thread continues operation after the first thread finishes, leaving the second thread running.  Can someone show me a quick example of how I can do this. I have tried checking states of the threads, halting the threads, but I always end up with the same thing. Any help would be great. Thanks.

How to set SearchRoot Path in Active Directory in this scenario


How to set SearchRoot Path in Active Directory in this scenario:

Functionality: We have scenario that 1<sup>st</sup> hit one LDAP server with some 'fixed user name' &' fixed password ' and filter data with specific User name(which given by user) getting 'User dn'.

After that we hit Next LDAP server based on the 'User dn' getting from 1<sup>st</sup> server.

(So, in my case 1<sup>st</sup> LDAP server works like as Load balancing server but functionalitywise it is different)


Word Automation Issue in Windows Server 2008 Hosting



The problem I am posting here is that I was facing nearly 2 weeks around. Any body comes with this stuff please help.

Word Automation in sample ASP.NET(C#) application.

I am using Microsoft.Office.Inetrop.Word Assembly for automation. Here I am reading a XXX.dot template file and fill the contents with dynamic data.

When i am executing my code in localhost:someportnumber the automation is working fine and I could get expected result and when I am hosting in my inetmgr(Windows XP is my OS) it is also working fine.

But the problem is that when I am hosting in my production server(Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition) I am not able to perform automation and results in the following error.

Data: System.Collections.ListDictionaryInternal
Message: Word has encountered a problem.
Source: Microsoft Word

The code gets failed in the following line:

ApplicationClass wordApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass();

Document wordDoc = wordApp.Documents.Add(ref oTemplate, ref oFalse, ref oMissing, ref oMissing); // Error in this line

I cannot able to proceed further. Can anybody please help me in solving this issue?

Thank you.

Split URL/Path in Classic AND .net 2.0


I need to be able to get the different parts of the URI (and convert from/to relative page paths) in BOTH classic ASP and .Net 2.0 (VB).

For example, if I have "http://sitename.company.com/index.aspx?sec=fred&pag=dis&mode=1" OR "/index.aspx?sec=fred&pag=dis&mode=1"

IS there a function where I can pass in either string (assuming I'm on sitename.company.com) and get back an array with:

(0): sitename.company.com
(1): index.aspx
(2): sec=fred&pag=dis&mode=1

(Or, alternately, three different functions that would return the three parts?)


If Statement Issue



This is very strange to me. I have spent 2hrs looking into this inside out , but dont seem to get it

I have an if statement that inserts data into the database. But i check to make sure the name is not entered twice. Now when the name is already in the db, then it should insert else put out a message saying its already in the db

My code works fine except that  when its not in the db, its inserts but still puts out the message that says "Name is already in use" Not sure if am not seeing something. But thought i did bring it to the forum. Here is my code...Pretty simple

Protected Sub btnAdd_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnAdd.Click

        Dim objConnection As SqlConnection
        Dim objCommand As SqlCommand
        Dim strSQLQuery1 As String


        ' If there's nothing to Add for then don't search
        ' o/w build our SQL Query and execute it.
        If String.IsNullOrEmpty(txtAdd.Text) Or Leadbank.SelectedValue = "000" Then


Path not valid.



im trying to save a file, filename as current date and time.it will give an error.

any ideas.

here is my code

string datetime=DateTime.Now.ToString();

if (GridviewtoCSV("~/Admin/doc/Reports/" + batchid.ToString() + datetime + ".csv", transactiongrid) && GridviewtoPDF("~/Admin/doc/Reports/" + batchid.ToString() + datetime + ".pdf", transactiongrid))
