how to add Carriage return to the message property of the Launch condition

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

I created a custom launch condition in the SetUp and deployment project.

To this condition, I added a message which is lengthy.

The Message looks something like this:

"ABC is required for this application /n Please go through the below link www.bing.com"

I have two questions here: 

1. How to add Carriage return to the message property of the Launch condition

2. How to display text as LINk. So that the IE is invoked from the message and user can go through the linked page.

Viewmodel property not set to [Required] yet getting error message saying it is?


I have a viewmodel that i use for my view

public int SelectionId{ get; set; }        
public IEnumerable<Selections> Selections { get; set; }

Notice that SelectionId is not decorated with [Required]. In my view, i use DropDownFor like this:

<%= Html.DropDownListFor(m => m.SelectionId, new SelectList(Model.Selections, "Id", "Name"), "--- Select ---")%>

It should be possible to not select anything from the dropdown, resulting in model.SelectionId = 0, which is fine. Why do i get a "SelectionId field is required" error when i Post?  If i do this:

<%= Html.DropDownList(mySelectionId, new SelectList(Model.Selections, "Id", "Name"), "--- Select ---")%>

I no longer get the error if i dont select anything, which is what i want - but no way to bind it to the id if the user does select something

thanks for any help!

Workflow 3.5 Activity property is null in condition and nowhere else

I have an activity that has properties that look something like this (they're set up as proper dependency properties, I just kept it simple here): public List<MyType> TypeList { get; set; }public Int32 Index { get; set; }public MyType SelectedType { get; set; } and an execution that just does this: SelectedType = TypeList[Index]; TypeList and Index are values that I set from other activities. I don't set SelectedType to anything in the activity properties, I just let it get set in the execution. Now I know for a fact that SelectedType is getting set properly, I can even point another activity to it and print out some values from it. So I'm quite positive that there's nothing wrong with that activity. However, I have an if activity with a condition that looks like this: ((MyActivity)GetActivityByName("activity1")).SelectedType != null and it evaluates to false (meaning it evaluated SelectedType as null). I'm pretty sure that that activity cast is correct (I do things like that all the time), and if it weren't wouldn't I get a null reference exception when trying to access SelectedType? So I'm pretty sure I'm not doing anything wrong here, but for some reason SelectedType is coming up null in that condition and no where else. It's almost as if the condition is being evaluated before the activity is being run, but the activity comes well before the condi

putting carriage return/line feed in non-HTML email text

Using vb.net/asp.net 2005I am trying to create a string message for an email that I am sending out from my asp.net page like so: For Each dr In dtDataTable.Rows strMessage = strMessage & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & Environment.NewLine & dr.Item("UserName") & Environment.NewLine Next so I am looping through a datatable and getting each name from each row, that is working well but when I get the email it appears in my inbox with all the names mashed together, you see I am trying both vbcrlf and newline but looks like neither is workingdoes anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

People Picker fails to search or resolve and return an error message.



I got an error while trying to access the people picker from some specific locations. I'm experiencing those problems ONLY in the cental administration and also there, just on a few places. For example if I try to change the authorization settings of any service application there is a different people picker pop up than, for example, if I want to change the admins of any service application. Any other people picker window outside the central administration works for me.

So it seems to me, that there are two different types of people picker windows. The one which is not working for me also appears in the metadata service application which is the reason I can't use this service as I'm not able to define an owner of a keyset.

In the error log I found the following message: "Ausnahme im Forderungsanbieter 'Alle Benutzer' beim Aufruf von 'SPClaimProvider.FillHierarchy()': Der Objektverweis wurde nicht auf eine Objektinstanz festgelegt." It basically says: An exception occurred in 'all users' claim provider when calling 'SPClaimProvider.FillHierarchy()': The object reference was not set on a object instance. This is event-id 8307 which you can find here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff535778.aspx

Detecting Bounces with return-path message header


I am coding an application that sends out automated emails for my company's clients, and tracks data (opens, click throughs, etc).  I am having problems trying to figure out how to track bounce messages though.  The From and ReplyTo email addresses are the clients (i.e. info@clientdomain.org, and contactus@clientdomain.org).  Currently, Bounce messages are being sent to the From email address.  In order to track and record the bounces in my company's database, I need to have the bounces instead sent to my company's domain (i.e. bounce@mycompany.com).

I am using C#, and the builtin System.Net.Mail code libraries to send SMTP messages through our company's Exchange Server (2003).  The code I am using looks something like this:

Code Snippet

MailMessage message = new MailMessage();
message.From = new MailMessage("info@clientdomain.org");
message.ReplyTo = new MailMessage("contactus@clientdomain.org")
message.To.Add(new MailMessage("customer1@blahblahblah.com"));
message.Subject = subjectString;
message.Body = bodyString;

SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient();
client.Host = emailServerHostName
client.Port = emailServerPort
client.Credentials = emailServe

InfoPath 2007 carriage return in textfield for logging


Hi all,

Been trying to create a logging feature, and to log actions in a multiline textfield with every action on a separate line.

Tried all sorts of solutions, nothing works right now.

Tried this InfopathDev solution (http://www.infopathdev.com/forums/t/1703.aspx?PageIndex=1) but also, no luck..

When I try to test it on the textfields "default value", it works, but when I try to use it in my rule that is filling my textfield it is not working..

Any ideas ?

WPF / Silverlight tutorial: Visibility property and binding

Visibility property is a very powerful and yet often overlooked property available in both WPF and Silverlight. It enables you to set Visibility of certain UIElement objects to different states like: Visible, Collapsed and Hidden (not supported by Silverlight). This tutorial shows you how to use it and how to bind to Visibility property

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.

Get pixel format, raw format, property id list and property items image in VB.net - C#.net.

n this simple article you will learn that how we can get pixel format, raw format, property id list and property items image in VB and C#.net.

Get Pixel Format:

Image consists of pixels to get the format of the pixel we have a property named pixel format. This property returns an enumeration of pixel format. This enumeration tells the pixel format.

To demonstrate make a window application. Drag one button and a picture box on form.

Now write the following code on Button click event:

Launch CMD File From ASPX Page


My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.


We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.


Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?

The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.

Inserting personal error message in ValidationSummary



I am creating a web form that requires a lot of validation. I use many of the validation control in asp.net already like RequiredFieldValidator and CompareValidator. 

My Problem: after my custom validation for the value entered return an error message, and I pressed enter key when the field is empty, my custom error message is overlapped by my ValidationSummary. 

Setting my custom error to visible = false on button click also does not seem to work as it requires for me to enter the value first.

This made me think, is there a way to insert my custom validation inside the ValidationSummary as an error message like for other validation control?

Thanks in advance

ListView DataPager with SQL-Statements that already return only paged data.



As far as I understand the ListView-Control and the DataPager-Control, they work like this: The ListView gets its datarows from its data source, then the DataPager causes the ListView to display only a subset of those rows.

So what, when I want to use custom databinding for the ListView, that *already* gets the certain subset from SQL-Server (for better performance). Can I and how can I use the DataPager then?

Thanx, S.

UpdatePanel is not a known element - message when upgrading to 1.0 ajax


It worked on one of my old pages.  I change the web.config, renamed all the <asp.

On some aspx page it doesn't recognize the updatepanel.  It only does on one page.  If I create a new aspx page with a different name - then it works.

Should I just create a new web project ajax - then copy all my code into there?  Or is there a way to get those old pages to recognize the new ajax controls?
