display files to download based on who is logged in

I have an asp.net web app. I have secure parts to the website and currently I have it setup so that people can login with their domain accounts. The are three secure sections to the site, all of which require files of interest be displayed to the user so they can download them.Okay so this is how I see it working, people come to the home page and select on one of the three options. At this point they are prompted for there domain password then they are navigated to the secure page and a bit of code populates the page with file downloads based on who they are logged in as.The files themselves will be uploaded to the website and kept in folders named after the username. so for instance the user edwardh would be displayed the files in the folder /downloads/edwardh.I'm not sure where to start with this, any direction?

prompt/display "AGAIN" Report Parameters on Main Report



I have main report with 3 report parameter ( start date, end date & drop-down list series of id's) by selecting these three paramters users can view the main-report.

Now inside the main-report I have link-report which I have implemented the functionality by using Text-Box and navigation tab "Jump to report" also selected "parameters" under same navigation tab with which I want to sent Report Parameters value to run link report successfully.

And from link-report I can come back to main-report by hitting "back to main-report" link with the same Report Parameters values.

Everything is working fine, it means I'm able to go back and forth by selecting different values from the main-report Report-Parameters values and can come back from link to main report with the same Report Parameters values.

So my question is regarding coming from link-report back again to main-report (2nd trip):-

When I hit on the back link, it goes to the main-report, but all the 3 Report Parameter's promts on the Main-Report aren't display; with this users can't change the values into the Report Parameters to accomplish that they need to execute the the main-report again to display the Report Parameters, so instead of asking

The good news is that Visual Studio allows you to completely customize the editor background and text colors to whatever you want - allowing you to tweak them to create the experience that is "just right" for your eyes and personality. You can then optionally export/import your color scheme preferences to an XML file via the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.

divs do not display side by side


I have two divs. I want them to display side by side, on the same row. Using display:inline-block I can do that. But as soon as I position some text in the bottom right corner of div1, the two divs do not have the same vertical position. They are side by side, but the 2nd div starts at the vertical position of the positioned text in the 1st div.   Why would it do that?  Both Chrome and IE8 render it the same way.

( I am doing the nesting of the divs on the left side so that I can position absolutely within a div and not the page. I can't get text to position in the lower right corner of a div any other way. )

Can't display an image from the database



My database has a products table that has images stored in a varbinary(MAX) column.

I'm trying to display product information in a repeater and trying to display the images as well by using a GenericHandler class but I can't get the image to show up in my page.

Here is my Handler.ashx class:

Public Class Handler
    Implements System.Web.IHttpHandler

    Sub ProcessRequest(ByVal context As HttpContext) Implements IHttpHandler.ProcessRequest

        '== Set up the response settings
        context.Response.ContentType = "image/gif"
        context.Response.BufferOutput = False

        Dim id As Integer = -1
        Dim stream As Stream = Nothing
        If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(context.Request.QueryString("id")) Then
            id = context.Request.QueryString("id")
            stream = GetImage(id)
        End If

        Const buffersize As Integer = 1024 * 16
        Dim buffer(buffersize) As Byte
        'byte[] buffer = new byte[buffersize];
        Dim count As Integer = stream.Read(buffer, 0, buffersize)

        While count > 0
            context.Response.OutputStream.Write(buffer, 0, count)
