asp menu control problem

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

i am using Visual Web developer 2010 Express and on localhost this shows correctly but when I upload it to my website it doesn't. 

The static menu spreads out across the whole page, and when you hover, the background color.. get this.. will change on the padding but not behind the letters if you hover over the letters, BUT if you hover over the padding the background behind the letters will turn to display correctly.  It's standard menu control code w/ background color set on both static and dynamic hover.  I'm using IE 8 to view it.  You can see it at  ChewChews.net. 

Is it just me or what?

ASP Menu control problem


Hey I'm building a new site in VB.NET 4.0 and I just noticed that the ASP Menu component breaks W3C validation. Normally I'm not concerned with the whole deal but this project requires 100% validation and I'm building this from the ground up. I barely have anything in place but I have everything necessary. The second I add the ASP Menu and bind it the validator errors out with this:

Line 36, Column 214: there is no attribute "valign" 
.sg74gxVJW81&t=634083384129375000" alt="Expand Home" valign="middle" /></td>

It's a normal site using a master page. UTF-8 with XHTML 1.0 Transitional. I have a valid CSS and Sitemap. I would go back to treeview but the list is going to get ridiculously big and that's where I need this menu to replace it entirely. Strange part is that I never noticed this problem before. Is it an ongoing problem or did I find a new bug? I would like to see a fix for this if possible.

Problem merging toolstrip control placed in UserControl with MDI Form menu


I currently have an MDI application with a MenuStrip as Main Menu. The application has a child form where an instance of one UserControl with a MenuStrip is dynamically created when the form is loaded. The MenuStrip contained on this UserControl is correctly merged with the Menu of the MDI container. In response to a button click on the child form, an instance of another UserControl is created, containing a different Menu and the previously UserControl instance is discarded. The expected action is that the menu of the second UserControl will replace the menu of the first UserControl on the MDI container menu, but this is not happening and the main menu keeps the menu items of the first UserControl.

How can I force the merging of the menu contained on the second user control with the Main Menu.

Thanks in advance.

Problem making Role based Menu in MVC application



 I want to make Rolebase menu in MVC such that if user doesnot have permission for some action then that Action name shouldnot be shown in the Menu.

 I have used the code in the url(http://forums.asp.net/t/1566328.aspx) in my MVC application.My application is a Discussion Forum(in MVC) same functionality as in this forum forums.asp.net

 I have used Controllers for post, thread etc.In each controller there are some actions that are using [Authorize(Roles)] attribute

 but this coding does not count  those Actions in Controllers having Authorize attribute according to the url http://forums.asp.net/t/1566328.aspx 

 In the code, Authorize attribute is applied to Controller class, but my requirement is of Applying Authorize attribute to some actions in controller so that some are available for all users and  some links are available rolewise.Now what is the solution for that?



Problem getting applicaton to run after retrieving it from source control software.


I am restoring my asp 2.0 app from a source control project to my local drive.

The application was originally created on a different PC but was created with Visual Studio 2005,

ASP.net 2.0.

The source control add-in (Harvest) is not working correctly so I retrieving and saving my web app

outside of Visual Studio.

I finally put all the pieces of the web app back together but now when I compile my app I get the following message:

Build (web): Could not load the assembly 'App_Web_myApplication.master.cdcab7d2'. Make sure that it is compiled before accessing the page.

Will I have to start over ?

Thanks for your insights !

Dynamic menu control


Dear all,

I want to get the names of some folders in my drive and populate my menu control with the names of those folders.

Getting the folder names is not the issue, but how can i populate my menu with the names of getted foldernames.

I tried this:

DirectoryInfo dirInfo = new DirectoryInfo(Server.MapPath("~\\MyFolders\\"));
DirectoryInfo[] dirs = dirInfo.GetDirectories();
Menu1.DataSource = dirs;

But im getting the error:

HierarchicalDataBoundControl only accepts data sources that implement IHierarchicalDataSource or IHierarchicalEnumerable.


How can i achieve this?

Thanks in advance.


Menu Control


Hi all

Ive got a Menu Control linked to Web.sitemap but would like a step by step example of how

to make it look and behave like the one I found here:-



Is there somewhere I can download an example of this or one similar?




Menu items of Welcome control behaves incorrect in non-IE browsers.


We are using wss 3.0 sp2

I am referring to the welcome control that is part of standard sharepoint pages. This is the in the masterpage. The welcome contrrol has options such as 'sign-in as different user' , 'signout' and so on. When user takes the mouse and tries to click on the sub-menu it doesn't work as if the menu item is not getting focussed (however up/down arrow with keyboard works fine). 

I know that sharepoint sites are not best when viewed with firefox, safari, chrome etc  but is there a fix for this? Is it do with 'z' index setting or something? Can this be fixed through javascript?  

Please share your views/solution.


Problem with Wizard Control



I have a wizard, which contains a series of custom user controls as steps. Also I am using the step navigation template to add in the navigation buttons.

However, due to some steps needing a little time to load fully due to web service calls and having to add some dynamic steps, I would like to disable the navigation buttons until the next step has been loaded and change the text on the "Next Button" to "loading...". Is there away I can do this perhaps with JavaScript or is there away I could do this with an AJAX control? If so, does anyone have an example I could use?


AJAX rating control on DataRepeater problem



 I am using a DataRepeater control to display records from a database. I have placed an AJAX rating control in the repeater. The control works fine for the first record in the data repeater but it does not work for the rest of the records. The problem is that the control renders fine on the screen but I cannot click it - the mouse changes when hovering over it, but the control does nothing, not even when I click it. The first item works ok though. Any ideas what could be the problem?

 Thanks a lot

Menu control rendering issue with IE8



Using VS2010, I created an ASP.NET 4.0 web application and simply added a couple of menu items below the "Home" menu item in the master page that's created by the project wizard. I made no other changes - no code, no stylesheet changes.

If I run the app locally then everything is fine. I suspect because the local IIS is responsive enough for the problem not to occur.

If I deploy the app to a web host (discountasp.net) then I see the menu render vertically for less than a second before it renders correctly. If I refresh the page a few times then usually I can see the menu vertical flash but sometimes I can't, so there's some sort of timing consideration.

I'm using IE8. The problem doesn't seem to occur with either Firefox 3 or Chrome.

Have others seen this problem?

Any suggestions for a fix?

I can supply the zipped up project if anyone wants it.

Problem with User Control Properties


I've been trying to figure out a problem that I've had for the past week and believe that the issue is something with a user control that I created. In short, the properties for the user control are recognized by intelisense when I register the control and then add it in the markup for a page. However, the values that I set in the markup are ignored by the class as if the properties don't exist.



Parent Page

 <%@ Register Src="../../controls/contactdetail.ascx" TagName="ContactDetail" TagPrefix="tfc" %>

<tfc:ContactDetail runat="server" ID="UserControlContactDetail" Title="Contact-Detail" ContactId="1580" EnableViewState="true" />   



User Control Class

Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Partial Class control_ContactDetail
    Inherits System.Web.UI.UserControl
    Public Property ContactId() As Integer
            Return _ContactId
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As Integer)
            _ContactId = value
        End Set
    End Property
    Private _ContactId As Integer
    Public Property Title() As String
            Return _Title
        End Get
