Web Site to Web Application Question


I've been building web sites and for my next project I will be creating a web application.  I use a 'BasePage' class in all my projects but, since web applications do not contain the 'App_Code' folder, what is the best place/practice for the 'BasePage' class?



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"

Security Question Answer Retrieval


I know there is a method built in for retrieving the encrypted password, but how do I retrieve the encrypted security answer?

What I want to do is have a member profile update screen that the end user can update their password and security question and answer. However, when they get to this page, I want to already be showing the security question (the easy part) and its answer (the not so easy part).

I have updated web.config with passwordFormat=Encrypted and have added a machineKey with the generator (forgot the link, but located on eggheadcafe somewhere).

I haven't done ANYTHING yet, since I already have a user store with hashed information. I wanted to get some functionality done before publishing, wiping the store and recreating users (only a couple developers).


Very Basic Question - Error message running first page


Hi Everyone,

I am running Windows 7 and I have gone into Control Panel and activated all of the IIS Functions.

The web application I am running was downloaded from the net (and has worked on other machines previously).  Once I downloaded it, I moved it into C:/inetpub/wwwroot/code/main.asp

I am a bit of a novice at this!  But I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction!


I get the following error when I try and run the web application through IE:

"An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator. If you are the system administrator please click here to find out more about this error."

(When i click the "click here" button it just goes to the IIS site).


Appreciate any help I can get!




C#, LINQ: (List<>) Question???


Hi Everyone,

I have a strange problem:


There is an entity (Table) called "Filters" in my .edmx which has all my tables and stuff in it (to use it for LINQ queries)

I have created a class called "CustomFilters" which inherits "Filters". So now my cutom class has all the properties of the original "Filters" class (table) and 1 more additional property that i wanted which is a List of "CustomFilters":

List<CustomFilters> children = new List<CustomFilters>();

Now i get all my records into:

List<CustomFilters> theOriginalList = new List<CustomFilters>();

NOTE: first all records are tken into a List<Filters> and then these are added into List<CustomFilters> where List<CustomFilters> for children of that record is added, and then children of the child records, and so on......

so now, every record is an instance of CustomFilters which has a property named "children" which is a list again; and each child again has instanaces of "CustomFilters", and each instance again has children...and on and on and on.....

(basiacally its a data source for a treeview in my silverlight control)

every thing is good and working as expected.


SQL 2008 timeout


I am recently getting a timeout exception when executing this method. This table stores images and it might be due to the size of the table. I have no idea! Help!


 Public Sub StoreFile(ByVal fileId As Integer, ByVal upload As Stream, ByVal connection As SqlConnection)
            Dim bufferLen As Integer = 8040
            Dim br As BinaryReader = New BinaryReader(upload)
            Dim chunk As Byte()
            chunk = br.ReadBytes(bufferLen)

            Dim cmd As SqlCommand = _
            New SqlCommand("UPDATE tblContactDocuments SET ContractDocument=@Buffer WHERE AutoID=@FileId", _
            cmd.CommandTimeout = 30
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@FileId", fileId)
            cmd.Parameters.Add("@Buffer", SqlDbType.VarBinary, bufferLen).Value = chunk

linqdatasource parameters question



I'm currently getting to know the linqdatasource control. What would happen if several WHERE parameters are added to the linqdatasource control declaritively in the aspx page but no WHERE clause is defined? 

1. is there any issue with setting up multiple WHERE parameters in the aspx markup for linqdatasource but then deciding which ones actually get used at runtime by setting the actual WHERE clause at run time? Would the unused parameters simply be ignored and cause no issues?

2. when you need to modify WHERE clause or WHERE parameters at runtime do you need to do so in an event handler? such as linqdatasource.selecting?
I see from the above link it is possible, but is that the standard way to handle controlling filtering in code behind for linqdatasource?

2b. if you use an event such as linqdatasource.selecting to add where parameters and/or modify the where clause in code will that also break the builtin sorting and paging support of the linqdatasource with a gridview? 

ReadXML Timeout


I am reading an XML file from an external URL and putting it into a dataset that is the populates a repeater. This works fine when I run it locally, however on the published web site I receive A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time error messages.

However, if i type the URL directly into a browser, I get the XML file almost immeadately which leads me to believe that I am going about this the wrong way or I need to some how to extend the timeout period.

Here is my code:

Protected Sub ButtonValidate_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles ButtonValidate.Click
        If Page.IsValid = False Then
        End If

        TableCellVATSIMIDResults.Text = "<br />VATSIM ID Validation Results for <i>" & TextBoxVATSIMID.Text & "</i>"
        Dim DataSetVATSIMValidation As New DataSet
        DataSetVATSIMValidation.ReadXml("http://cert.vatsim.net/cert/vatsimnet/idstatus.php?cid=" & TextBoxVATSIMID.Text)


<asp:Repeater runat="server" ID="RepeaterVATSIMValidation">
                    <HeaderTemplate />

Client ID basic question


Hi guys,

Is there any problem to use MANUALLY, within a Javascript, the client ID code?

Like that  ctl00_ContentPlaceHolderConteudo_pgtoiframe


I have one iFrame that need to access div style located in the parent page. So I've done that using manually the clientID code. The code works perfectly and It's still working fine right now.

Will I get errors or problems in the future using it in that manner????

Thank you
