advice needed on implementing a re-usable class (c#)

Hi guys,Im trying to create a function for my website that allows the re-sizing of images for different purposes. I want the function to use variables for image height and image width, and obviously for the file itself. I have working test code for re-sizing a selected image that is hard-coded into the function. I have created it in a separate class in my App_Code folder, and have tried calling it on web pages and it works until I try and pass a filename as a variable, encountering a variety of errors. Should I be using a server control/user control to do this? or do I need something else?RegardsPooleo

Some help needed for creating a new "struct" to represent elements of a class in a different way....

I'm working on an existing project, where a class is defined as follows:  public class Stat { public DateTime? Date { get; set; } private Dictionary<string, int> _pageViews; public Dictionary<string, int> PageViews { get { if (this._pageViews == null) this._pageViews = new Dictionary<string, int>(); return this._pageViews; } } where the dictionary will store, for each entry, the name of a browser (string) and the # number of pagevisits using that browser(int). So basically, it's like a database table with 3 fields {Date, browser, count} (Each instance of the class is like a record within the table).   What I'm looking for is a way to create a new structure in which the pair {browser- Date/Count}  becomes the PK in DB terms.   Browser        Date                Count--------------------------------------------- Firefox         08/08/2010         20Firefox         08/09/2010         12IE                08/08/2010    

Class Diagrams

Class diagrams show the static structure of the systems. Classes define the properties of the objects which belong to them. These include:

Attributes - (second container) the data properties of the classes including type, default value and constraints.

Creating a Simple Class in C#

The second article in the C# Object-Oriented Programming tutorial describes how classes are created in C# and how behaviour, in the form of publicly visible and private, hidden methods can be added. This demonstrates some of the uses of encapsulation

Static Class for Beginners

In general, the members of a class can be accessed by instance of that class when they are in public, but there comes a situation to access or call members of a class without an instance and this can be achieved by declaring them as static

abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

ASP.NET provides a configuration system we can use to keep our applications flexible at runtime. In this article we will examine some tips and best practices for using the configuration system for the best results.

The element of a web.config file is a place to store connection strings, server names, file paths, and other miscellaneous settings needed by an application to perform work. The items inside appSettings are items that need to be configurable depending upon the environment, for instance, any database connection strings will change as you move your application from a testing and staging server into production.

Let's abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

MessageQueue Class

This sample demonstrates two way communications using message queuing between a device application and a desktop application. One application sends book order messages to a message queue and another application receives these book orders from the message queue and responds to the device queue that the orders have been processed.

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 :)


How to change the default page base class?


I've tried setting the <pages pageBaseType="DynamicWebPage" /> value in web.config, but when I response.write out the page type, I'm still getting Microsoft.WebPages.WebPage.

I'm simply trying to sub-class WebPage and add some additional functionality such as a dynamic PageData dictionary similar to Phil Haack's dynamic ViewData dictionary.



Can I replace the EntityObject as base-class in Entity Designer 3.5 sp1?


I'm using EF3.5sp1 for a project, and I've been working around many of its problems... as such, my entity partial classes have a lot of logic in them for change-tracking and whatnot.  Obviously, I'd like to factor this logic out into a common base class, but of course all my objects must derive from EntityObject.  Is it possible to tell them to derive from some class of my own invention (which would actually likely derive from EntityObject themselves)?

I'd rather avoid editing the EDMX file unless the changes will be safe on entity-model-update, since I'm still making changes to the database schema in this early state of my project.


Also, is there any good workaround for the fact that the change isn't tracked when you change EntityReference.EntityKey?

Singleton Pattern and Abstract Class


I know what Singleton Pattern means and Abstract class means.

What I wanted to know was how would this apply to real world.

Could anyone give me any good example or simple explanation.

Say I have a simple website, why would I use any of the above if any.

Why would it simplify my architechture.

Thanks in advace. 

How to implement custom HttpContext for each request under class that implements IHTTPHandler


Hello All,

I created an application and implemented IHTTPHandler for all incoming request ending with ".aspx" extension.

Under "ProcessRequest" module, I am creating an instance of HttpContext (with URL attributes different from my application's URL i.e. if I am working on localhost then speciying Yahoo.com as its URL) and assigning it to "context" which comes as method argument.

After redirection, an error is generated. Also, the custom HTTPContext is not passed to the requested page (default.aspx, in my case.)

Code is as follows.

    Public Sub ProcessRequest(ByVal context As System.Web.HttpContext) Implements System.Web.IHttpHandler.ProcessRequest
            Dim requestedUrl As String
            Dim targetUrl As String
            Dim urlLength As Integer
            'Save settings which will be used while redirecting to appropriate page
            requestedUrl = context.Request.RawUrl
            If requestedUrl.IndexOf("?") >= 0 Then
                targetUrl = requestedUrl.Substring(0, requestedUrl.IndexOf("?"))
                targetUrl = requestedUrl
            End If
            If targetUrl = Nothing Or targetUrl.Length = 0 Then
                targetUrl = requestedUrl
            End If

Using a GenericHandler as a WebResource inside a Class Library



I hope this is the right place to ask this question.

I'm trying to make a control class library. I want to have a GenericHandler as a WebResource so I could call it from the web project that will use that control.

I need this handler will get parameters from the query string and return JSON data acourding to what it get in the QS.

I know how to create JS and images WebResources, so I tried the same on a generic handler I added to the class library project but all it does is return the source of the handler file and not the result.


Is what I'm trying to do possible? If so, what should I do?


Thank :-)

Using loginName to find ADInfo from an outside class



I wrote a class to pull adinfo and for the life of me I can't seem to figure

out why it says "Invalid Login Name" no matter what I type in. If I leave

it blank it seems to work properly but it doesn't seem to be actually searching

the AD. I'll drop the whole class here, it's being initiated by a button click

on an outside form.


Thanks in Advance for any help Offered,

help needed: Ldap User authentication using userDN and password



Is it possible to authenticate a user using userDN and password? If so, then tell me the syntax.So far i have tried to authenticate using username and password from my c# code using directoryentry which takes the parameters like domainname,username and password. But i need to authenticate using Userdn and password.

helped needed: ASP LDAP authentication failed in IE 8


I use the following code to do the user authentication through Active Directory using LDAP.

entry = new DirectoryEntry("LDAP://" + server, user_name, password);
if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(entry.Name))
EmployeeNetId = entry.Username.Substring(0, 3);

// Retrieve EmployeeId, and Employee Full Name
EmployeeId = -1;

It works for Chrome, Firefox with no problem. But with IE 8, it works sometimes, and failed on some computers. When it failed, I figured that I need to check SSL 2.0 in IE 8 Internet Options.  It's weird because in those computers that IE 8 works, SSL 2.0 is also unchecked.

Am I using some deprecated method? Or How do I specifiy the SSL version options in the LDAP connection?

Localization not working in class library (composite control)



I have a class library called WEM.portal which used Resource files to localise text in my composite controls.

I store my resource files (eg MyResourceFile1.resx) in App_GlobalResources folder and then refer to them using

MyLabel1.text = My.Resources.MyResourceFile1.MyResourceKey1

This is all working ok until I create seperate files for each language such as MyResourceFile1.FR-fr.resx.

I have implemented this throughout my other web applications but the Class Library doesnt seem to want to work the same way

When I load the page it correctly showes the resourced keys which I have done through the web application BUT the resource keys in the composite controls does not seem to pick up the culture code.

Am I missing something stupid. Ive tried

  • changing the Build Action on the resource file to Content and Custom tool to GlobalResourceProxyGenerator
  • Creating a resourceManager but to no avail
