string from a label?

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


i am using Request["theiruseridLabel"] to get a string from a label (in a datalist) on my page. is this the right format? As it does not return anything..?

here is my whole code, as you can see i have put in an extra label1.text, which shows as blank when getting the userName string...:

Label theiruseridLabel = DataList1.Items[0].FindControl("theiruseridLabel") as Label;
        HyperLink hp2 = DataList1.Items[0].FindControl("HyperLink2") as HyperLink;
        HyperLink hp3 = DataList1.Items[0].FindControl("HyperLink3") as HyperLink;
        Label Label1 = DataList1.Items[0].FindControl("Label1") as Label;

        string userName = Request["theiruseridLabel"]; //is this right to find a label????
        ProfileCommon userProfile = System.Web.Profile.ProfileBase.Create(userName, true) as ProfileCommon;
        hp2.Text = userProfile.FirstName;
        hp3.Text = userProfile.CompanyName;
        Label1.Text = userName;

How do I write a string coming from a Javascript function in my Label control?


Hi all,

This is what I tried doing in my Javascript function (partially):

catch (err) {
              document.getElementById("lblError").innerHTML = err.description;

IE output of my lblError label component is a long id name like this:

<td>Last Error: <span id="ctl00_ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder_GlobalMasterPage_ContentPlaceHolder_DashboardMasterPage_lblError">No errors at this time.</span>

how do I look up for lblLabel in this case?

Thank you

Built-in Functions - String Functions

String functions let you extract various portions of character strings, change the case of strings, concatenate and reverse strings and perform many other types of manipulations. All built-in string functions are deterministic with the exception of CHARINDEX and PATINDEX

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.

connection string question from a newbie


when publishing  in the webmatrix dialogue it asks for "destination connection string" for my "database.mdf"

I was not sure what it was so I pasted this from my web.config file :

Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\database.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True

it all published ok, but wont run, so I guess it has somthing to do with this connection string or some kind of configuration issue.

My question is this, What should go in the field for "Destination connection string"

Membership Provider Conn String


Hello. I've bee successfully using the Asp.Net Membership Provider in my VB.Net 3.5/SQL 2005 web app for a year now (Site A). However, I've added 2 new sites (B and C) (both with their own DB) and now I see a problem. It looks like users that get created for sites B and C also get created in site A. Roles that I create for B and C only get created in A. I think it is a conn string problem.

When I created A, I adde the conn string to my machine.config (not sure why I did this or if it is even needed)...
