Read only activities?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

How can I check if an activity is currently "read only" from within a custom activity designer?

In other words - i know there's a way to set activities as read-only from within a workflow designer like this:

      ReadOnlyState state = this.wd.Context.Items.GetValue<ReadOnlyState>();
      state.IsReadOnly = true;
I'm wondering now, how to check whether this has been set from within a custom activity designer itself?

Scripts not read when in head tag


I just upgraded to VS2010 if that matters.  I'm learning JQuery and noticed that scripts don't work if they're in the head tag.  Also, I need the script tag with type="text/javascript" in the head (with nothing else) in order for the JQuery scripts in the body to work.

Very bizzare, any suggestions?

With a separate script tag in the <body> with my JQuery script, this works

<head runat="server">
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js" />
<script type="text/javascript">

This doesn't:

<head runat="server">
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js" />

Read Excel file from Web Application (C#)



I have a web app where user uploads a file.

File is saved in server locally and I want to read some data from it.

Currently my development  server has office 2003.

So do I need office 2007 in order to be able to  read an excel from office 2007 ?

What are other requirements  ?

I tried a test, using

Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application excelApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application();
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook wrkBook; // = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook();

wrkBook = excelApp.Workbooks.Open(@"C:\www\excel_files\b.xls", ....);

But When trying to open the file I get the error:

Exception from HRESULT: 0x800A03EC

So I'm wondering what I'm missing.

how read write cookies in asp.net


hi please give me code for read write cookies in  asp.net



error in MicrosoftAjax.js: Cannot read property '_notified' of null


I am cross testing my project with multiple browsers: IE7, Firefox and Chrome.

One one page I have a dynamically built table with two DropDownLists and CascadingDropDown extenders. Maybe the only thing special about the drop down lists is, that I add a "onChange" for the second drop down list in each row which shows or hides the list depending on the value populated from the web services.

All of this works perfectly in IE7 and Firefox, but Chrome does not execute the JavaScript in the onChange attribute and the error console says:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property '_notified' of null
