MVC 3.0 Beta: IFilterProvider.GetFilters called 4 times per request

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I implemented a custom IFilterProvider derived from FilterAttributeFilterProvider and
registered it using a Unity based dependency resolver. (Pretty much as described on
Brad Wilson's blog.) While debugging, I noticed that IFilterProvider.GetFilters on my
custom class get called a lot. I counted 4 times per request.

Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?

I have a simple project that reproduces the behavior if anyone is interested.

DataGrid ValidationRule or IDataErrorInfo validation code called multiple times for each data change

Following my enquiry regarding a problem in Datagrid validation, for which managing exceptions is apparently a problem, I tested the two other methods: using validation rules, or implementing the IDataErrorInfo interface. I ran into other problems there, more insidious this time. This has been done on Windows7 (32-bit), .NET 4.0.30319. 1) IDataErrorInfo When this interface is implemented, the this[string columnName] property is called four times for each modification: two times before the cell enters edit mode (with the old value in the corresponding property) two times when the new value has to be validated (with the new value) It strikes me as not really efficient, is there something wrong with my code? Here's the C# part: using System; using System.Windows; using System.Collections.ObjectModel; using System.ComponentModel; namespace DataGridTest2 { public partial class MainWindow : Window { ObservableCollection<User> users; public MainWindow() { InitializeComponent(); users = new ObservableCollection<User>() { new User { Name = "Teddy", Age = "2" }, new User { Name = "Avi", Age = "19" } }; datagrid.ItemsSource = users; datagrid.Focus(); } } public class User : INotifyPropertyChanged, IDataErrorInfo { string name; public string Name

application_start event called multiple times in MVC application

hi, In my MVC application ,I am updating my web.config at runtime through application_start event.So, ideally it should be done only when the application is started.BUT in MY mvc application the application_start event of global.asax is being called multiple times , even when i have not restarted the application. Its being repetadly called when i am calling different actions , so the webconfig is repetedly updating & making my application very very slow. Can you please let me know , what's the reason & how to handle this .   Thanks in advance gbhatnagar    

AppDomain.Unload called multiple times?




     In a simple console app, I created a separate AppDomain (name: ad2)  to do some work.  In this AppDomain, I created a separate worker thread  and deliberately put the thread to sleep for long time (2 mins) in the Finally block.


      I also subscribed to the ad2’s Unload event  to do some logging.


      Immediately after calling the worker method, I called the AppDomain.Unload(ad2) in the main thread.  Because of the long Thread.Sleep() in the worker thread finally block, a CannotUnloadAppdomainException was thrown when calling AppDomain.Unload(ad2).

Web Pages Beta 2-Request Validation

Today we released all kinds of goodness at Microsoft for ASP.NET developers: - Web Pages Beta 2 - An update to our new support for adding simple Razor syntax pages to to web applications. - MVC 3 Beta - An update to our preview release from a few months ago with several enhancements around razor, helpers, unobtrusive javascript, dependency injection and more. - NuPack - Package manager for finding, adding, upgrading libraries for your .NET projects. This makes it super easy to find libraries for writing your applications and easily installing them into your projects including their dependencies. I want to focus on Web Pages today which I've not written about since we released the first release but I've been involved in from the beginning. If...(read more)

CacheMetadata being called multiple times


I'm going through the exercises of Bruce Bukovics new WF4 book and in one of his examples, the results he's generating are different from the results I'm getting. He states for an instantiated instance of an activity, if it's executed multiple times, the CacheMetadata is only called once. I'm seeing it called for each execution of the activity I'm making. Is he wrong or am I not interpreting the results correctly.

Here's a link to the solution containing the custom activity, designer, and testing console app:

Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks!

ASP.NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010 Web Development Beta 2 Overview

Many exciting changes for ASP.NET are coming in the .NET Framework version 4. This document gives an overview of many of the new features that are included in the Beta 2 release of the .NET Framework 4 and of Visual Studio 2010.

Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2

This is a big deal. This isn't ".NET 3.6" - there are a lot of improvements of .NET 4, and it's not just "pile on a bunch of features so you get overwhelmed." I've been working with and talking to many of the teams involved and even though it's a cheesy thing to say, this is a really customer-focused release.

ASP 4 - Whirlwind Tour around .NET 4 (and Visual Studio 2010) Beta 1

There's a lot of stuff that's new and added in .NET 4, but not in that "overwhelming-I-need-to-relearn-everything" way. More in that, "oh, this is way easier/simpler now" way. Like, moving data around with ADO.NET DataServices is easy, binding with client templates is easy, there's F# if you need it, the "dynamic" keyword if you need it, Silverlight's already installed, oh, and the parallel stuff will freak you out, but in a good way.



Dear gentlemen and ladies of the Microsoft Dynamic Data Team,

Mr. Steve Naughton says (and I hope so) that there might be chances that you read the posts published in this forum: I really hope so.

If that were the case then I am formally requesting to you in providing a "real answer" to my question:

I want to customize a dynamic data page (the details one) so I can have access to the data it has been already gathered from the end user UI (details.aspx) and use it to pass this same data to the following controls/pages that I am going to display next time to the end user.

For instance:

I have a screen with different types of data in it: texts, numbers, dates, check boxes, radio buttons and dropdownlists that has been filled with data by the end user. I want now to reset all fields exept the dropdownlist of which I'd like to keep the previously chosen values(the very same thing you do between dropdownlist of List.aspx ad Details.aspx). Even with FoxPro I could do that because data and controls were available there. It was as simple as setting carrying on to true.


I have found my

view state vs request parameters


If  the view state is the data entered into the form fields then they are supposed to be available in the request parameters or request body. Then why would we need view state for?


Unique ID throughout entire request



I am hoping somene here could advise me on a better solution to my present problem.  First a little background information on the application. 

I have a web application using the 3.5 framework.  The structure of this application is as follows: UI -> WebService   -> Business Layer -> DataAccess Layer.   What I want to accomplish is for every request (click on a link or button) have a unique identifer that follows this request through its entire lifecycle.  This unique identifer can be accessible anywhere within this request.  We use Response.Redirects which could easily be changed to Server.Transfers (although I do not want to do that) but  the problem lies with the web service calls.  Currently, a GUID is set in the ApplicationRequest.  This GUID checks for a guid value in the RawURL and if so, assigns this value to a HttpContext Item.  If not, HttpContext.Items gets a new one created.  However, this idea is wrong and will need to be revisisted.  The bigger problem is with the web service calls.  Without changing every web service method signature, and every call for that matter, is there a way of getting this GUID there.  I created a web method in every web service so that each time I instantiate a web service object in the UI, before calling any

System.Security.SecurityException: Request for the permission of type 'System.Web.AspNetHostingPerm


Good Day all,

Having an issue with an outside user accessing my IIS7 box. I do not have this problem when running the website from my host machine. I found this post: Http://forums.asp.net/t/1371394.aspx. I assure you that this is not a solution because I am not storing any of my files on a network share. 

What do you think my approach should be. 

I already have read rights to IIS user to my BIN folder. 

Thanks for the help. 

IIS request filtering module


Hi folks,

I have migrated my web application to iis 7.5 Now I am using windows 7 as dev machine.

the problem is it takes several seconds to download a single page into web browser now. It contains only 300 records.

Everything is ok on prod website though. Prod version contains up to 200000 records .I can't also use code profile tool of red gate to analyze possible bottlenecks since the software in question can't restart IIS. No errors in IIS logs. I am using ISAPI Rewrite 3 filter by Helicon to apply some URL rewriting rules. I am thinking about conflict between ISAPI rewriting rules and default IIS 7.5 request filtering rules, since the IIS request filtering module gets a higher priority than even the built-in IIS 7.5 rewriter module. Is it possible to tweak the module through web.config so that priority is given to ISAPI rewriting rules or something like that?

Frankly, I spent several days to figure out solution. No success...

I've also deployed the application on IIS 5.1. Everything works fine. Any ideas about possible solution for IIS 7.5?

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
