Problem with master page and update panel (I think)

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


the app I am working with is made up of three nested master pages that have the following design:

The first master page ha only realize the HEADER, BODY and FOOTER divs.

The second one specialize the Body content placeholder and divide it in three more layers: NAVIGATOR, PAGE TITLE, BODY CONTENT.

The final layer specialize the BODY CONTENT in PAGE CONTENT and ACTIONS.

In one of my content pages I have (inside the PAGE CONTENT area) 

  • 1 Update Panel that contains a gridview object
  • 1 Update Panel that contains some HTML code to show in a PopupModalExtender

The PopupModalExtender can be either triggered from inside the gridView and also from a series of LinkButtons that are in the ACTIONS area.

The problem is that when the PopupModalExtender shows the FOOTER and the ACTIONS areas are not dimmed from the style I apply as background to the modal popup. An example of what I am trying to explain can be viewed in the following screenshot.

Why this is going to happen? Has anybody any suggestion on how to solve this problem?

Thanks a lot

Master Page, web service and Ajax autocomplete extender problem.

 I will appreciate very much any help about this issue.  I have been dealing with it for the last week and I couldn't detail and complete examples about this issue. The problem: I have a text box and ajax autocomplete control extender in my Master Page that it is not working at all.  When I type some characters on the text box it doesn't trigger the autocomplete. I have a web service that contains the function code. I est my code on a single Web Page (No Master Page) and it works perfectly.  Also, it works fine if I include the text box and the extender on the Content Page instead of on the Master Page.  It is important to keep the text box in the Master Page for me. I am using Visual Studio 2008 and ASP 3.5.   tHANK YOU VERY MUCH. here is my code:   MASTER PAGE. <%@ Master Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="MasterPage.master.vb" Inherits="MasterPage" %> <%@ Register assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" tagprefix="ajax" %> <%@ Import Namespace = "System.Data" %> <%@ Import Namespace = "System.Data.SQLClient" %> <%@ Import Namespace = "System.Web.Script.Services" %> <%@ Import Namespace="System.Web" %> <%@ Import Namespace="System.Web.Services&

Forms Based Authentication - problem with custom master page and login page



I have successfully enabled and set up FBA (Forms Based Authentication) on my SharePoint 2010 Foundation server. The thing is that I need to customize the look and feel of the login page. I have successfully customized the page (and master page) to look the way I want, however, when I try to log in, I get the following error/message on the page:
"Forms Based Authentication on classic Web applications has been deprecated".

What I've done:
Made copies of /_layouts/simple.master and /_layouts/login.aspx and renamed the copies. The markup in the master page is MUCH simpler than the original, but I've kept all the ContentPlaceholders that I don't use (most of them) in a hidden <asp:Panel at the bottom of the page.

I've changed the web.config file:
<authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="/_layouts/loginCustom.aspx" />

So, I'm not getting any errors on the page until I try to log in. When I use the default settings (login.aspx and simple.master) it works just fine (but damn that page looks ugly!).

Does anyone know what I might be missing?

Update: I believe the reason it doesn't work is because my custom login aspx is not part of the Claims Based Web Application (because it's sitting

Problem with User Control, Update panel and flicker


I have  block of code that consists of a textbox a button and a dropdown. The text entered in the text box filters the dropdownlist when the user clicks the button. The Ajax works great when it is in a simple page but if I put the same code in a User control I get flicker. Can anyone assist with this issue?

page inside update panel doesn't refresh the session object after postback of any control



I have many controls like dropdown, radiobuttonlist, etc on my page and I put all these controls inside the update panel so that the page doesn't look to be posting back when something is selected. Now the working on the page is very smooth. But the session object isn't getting refreshed even if I postback to the server and as a result even if the users are working on the page they are being sent to the login screen after 20 mins.

Is there anyway where I could put all the controls in update panel and still refresh the session after any postback(dropdown selection)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Master Page User.Identity.Name problem

Back button and update panel problem



I have a search page that uses an AJAX update panel to deliver results to the user. They can then navigate to a product page for more info. So far so good...

My problem occurs when they are on a product page and use the back button. They are redirected to the search page, but its a blank search page and not the one they left when they clicked for product details. I realise this is because the browser only made a history 'marker' (I dont know the technical term) when they first came to the search page, so this is what it returns them to.

Does anyone know how I can make the back button redirect the user to the search page as it was when they left it? I have tried making the page expire immediately and storing the search terms in session state so I can rebuild the page when they click 'back'. This works in IE, but not in Firefox as it seems to just load out the old page from the cache regardless of the expiration policy I set. As if that werent bad enough, this also causes 'corrupted state information' error when they try to search again.

Any suggestions? Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you

(PS -  I have seen various solutions to the back button/ajax problem, but none of them seem to address my problem. Or have I missed something?)

Update panel problem in gridview footer


On my aspx page, I'm having troubles when I have an update panel within the footer template of a gridview. It appears to be an intermitent problem that occurs on subsequent postback when you do a delete command in the gridview. The first delete command always goes through fine (first postback). Clicking on another row to delete on the gridview (or any other button on the form) triggers this error:

An error has occurred because a control with id 'ctl00$SupremeContent$grdLineNumbers$ctl09$ctl00' could not be located or a different control is assigned to the same ID after postback. If the ID is not assigned, explicitly set the ID property of controls that raise postback events to avoid this error.

If you click the back button in the browser, then click on another page, then come back to this page, you can delete another record. Another attempt to delete another record brings you back to the above problem. Thectl00$SupremeContent$grdLineNumbers$ctl09$ctl00 changes each time you delete, come back to the page and delete.

If I disable the udpate panel, there's no errors.

The reason I have the update panel is so that the user can select the relevant pipe specification (they see multiple columns using a textbox, drop down extender, panel and gridview) without the form's data being reset by the embedded gridview's

Modal Popup Extender and an Update Panel - "Cancel" Button problem


This should be a quick "yes" answer - I am in the process of creating a very simple test, but I thought I'd ask on here too (also, so other people might be able to find the answer, if they have the same problem).

I have created a modalpopupextender that opens up a panel containing an update panel.  I have a cancel button that is tied into the MPE's [CancelControlID] property and this closes the popup when I click it.  However, if I perform a partial postback within the update panel, the cancel button no longer works.  I have found an example online that seems to imply that the cancel button (and I'm guessing, by association) and the OK button should be outside the update panel.  Does the partial postback break the buttons' client script bindings, and thus should they always be placed outside the update panel?
