Change config tcp endpoint's IP in App.config during runtime.

Posted By:      Posted Date: November 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
 

I currently have a WCF service library, a WPF host app, a shared project that uses the service library as a service reference and 2 projects that reference the project that service references the service library...I hope that made sence. I was wondering how to modify the service library's App.config file during run time with another WPF add that would modify the IP and other information in the app.config files.

 

Their are a total of 5 App.config files and i need a WPF app to change all 5 accordingly. The problem that happens is that the service library creates a dll when the app.config file packed inside.

 

Any ideas?

WCF Reading Endpoint Behaviors from a web.config file

  

Hi

I've got a WCF service which has multiple clients that it connects to.

What I want to do is to create the clients dynamically the WCF services consumes.

Creating the clients by inheriting from the `ServiceFactory<TChannel>` class is done and very simple. What I'm struggling with is how to read Endpoint behaviours from the `web.config` file and add them to the clients?

Code file

    BasicHttpBinding binding = new BasicHttpBinding(bindingConfigName);
    EndpointAddress endpoint = new EndpointAddress(endpointUrl);
    ChannelFactory<IShoppingSoap> clientEndpoint = new ChannelFactory<IShoppingSoap>(binding, endpoint);
   
    base.Endpoint.Behaviors.Add(*Get the behavior from the config file*);
    return base.CreateChannel();

`Web.config` file :

    <behaviors> 
        <endpointBehaviors> 
           <behavior name="EndpointBehaviour_GmCustom">
             <dataContractSerializer maxItemsInObjectGraph="2147483646" /> 
      

How to change Asp.net Theme via Web.Config on the fly

  
 
 

Summary

I have a web-application with more than 5 themes. Each themes covers a completely different style for different customers. whenever we publish a new version of our application we send it for all of customers.

The problem.

We specify theme in web.config file in <Page> tag. like

 

<page theme="Theme1" /> // or Theme2 for second customer. 

with this approach we easily change the style of application from each other without writing codes which needs a new publish for each one.

With changing the theme="Theme1". nothing change and we didn't write a code in application , so why changing theme don't change the theme and we need a new publish?

we want to change it in web.config or somewhere else and with changing it the theme change without needing a new publish for each one.

 

I Publish Once and then copy the published version for each customer (5 times) then in each web.config file I change the theme="CustomerTheme". but only the theme which was acti

Manual change to "applicationSettings" in app.config file are not read by the application.

  

Hello,

Okay...This Application Settings stuff is driving me nuts.  Something conseptually so simple should not be this hard to get working.

Here is my

I have a .NET 4 application in which I generated a web reference from a web service wsdl.

I see that it creates an endpoint property in the app.config file which corresponds to a settings class that is autogenerated.    I compile my release code and copy the executable and config file to a local drive.

By default, the url points to the endpoint that was added by the designer.

Now, I want to change my application configuration to point to the production version the the webservice.

To do this I thought all I had to do was change the value in the app.config file.  However, the application never reads from the config, it's always taking the default setting compiled into the settings class.  I'm at a loss as to why this is happening. 

I have search through this forum and there are so many different posts on application settings but all I want to do is change the config file manually without having to recompile.   I'm not doing any runtime settings modifications. 

What if down the line we change the alias to the web service hosting the service.  I can't imagine Microsoft really expects us to have to rec

Changing the address in app.config at runtime ..AN ISSUE..HELP neede..

  
hi wcf champs.,

hmm...I have a problem..and seriously need a solution to get things done well..!!

Have developed a wcf Upload application,the wcf service is hosted on IIS..now,the endpoint address at the server is exposed at client(in app.config).If further the server ip changes to some other..then the address at the client must be changed..!right..ya I did something to handle this but ,its another problem..!!.

Let me say what i have done and why does that give a problem..

WHAT HAVE I DONE TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM :-

*.*.The server ip is stored in a xml file.When the application runs,it picks up the server ip and changes it in Client.exe.config...

*.And if there is EndpointotFound exception at the client,it asks the admin to check the ip of the server.

*.The admin checks it and if the server ip is changed,the admin changes the ip in the xml file (where server ip is stored).

now let me know.."IS THIS A RIGHT APPROACH TO SOLVE MY PROBLEM" ..But then there is a problem!!let me share that with u..

THE PROBLEM IS :-

*.The ip that is picked from  xml and placed in Client.exe.config.

Clean Web.Config Files (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

  
.NET 4 includes a new version of the CLR, and a new .NET 4 specific machine.config file (which is installed side-by-side with the one used by .NET 2, .NET 3 and .NET 3.5).

The new .NET 4 machine.config file now automatically registers all of the ASP.NET tag sections, handlers and modules that we've added over the years, including the functionality for:

.ASP.NET AJAX
.ASP.NET Dynamic Data
.ASP.NET Routing (which can now be used for both ASP.NET WebForms and ASP.NET MVC)
.ASP.NET Chart Control (which now ships built-into ASP.NET V4)
What this means is that when you create a new "Empty ASP.NET application" project in VS 2010, you'll find that the new default application-level web.config file is now clean and simple:

How to Localize Windows Forms and Change the Language at Runtime

  
Localization is the process of customizing your application to a particular language, culture or locale. Visual Studio provides support for localizing Windows Forms with much ease. In this article, we will see how to localize windows forms and give the user the ability to change to his preferred language at runtime.
When you run a localized application, the appearance is determined by two culture values. The UICulture property is used to specify which resource files will be loaded for the form. The Culture property, on the other hand, determines how strings such as dates, numerals, and currency amounts are formatted.
Let us see the steps required to create a localized form. You can then expand this example and adopt the same approach for the rest of the forms in your project

reading values from config files in NUnit tests

  

One of my NUnit tests has to read in some values from config files.  In my main application this process works perfectly well, however when I run the unit test, the code that reads in the values from the config files doesnt read anything in.  Ive tried putting app.config in my unit test project (I even tried web.config) but nothing seems to work.  Are there any special steps involved when reading from config files in an nunit test ?

Modifying connection String in Web config using Install Wizard

  

Hey,

Im trying to create a Web Deployment Project, the built in setup and deployment is very good in Visual Studio, i need to able to add an additional step in the setup to change the connection string in the Web config file. Ive seen a lot of articles on how to do this and in particular this http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/06/15/tip-trick-creating-packaged-asp-net-setup-programs-with-vs-2005.aspx#7162670 I am however stuck on the final part of this tutorial, im using the code Scott provided but have two errors,  heres part of my code where the errors are

Web deployment project - web.config section replacement does not add remove tag

  

I have a web application that is actually installed as a component of a third party site.  In some configurations, I need to remove certain connection strings and re-add them.  I'm replacing this web.config section with a xml file that includes the following:

<connectionStrings>
      <remove name="MyOverridenConnection"/>
      <add connectionString="Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=MyDb;Data Source=MyServer" name="MyOverridenConnection"
           providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
    </connectionStrings>

For some reason the remove tag is left out during the substitution and I end up with the following in the installed config:

<connectionStrings>
      <add connectionString="Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=MyDb;Data Source=MyServer" name="MyOverridenConnection"
           providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
    </connectionStrings>

Is there any way to issue removes in replaced sec

The ASP Column: What's in ASP.NET Config Files?

  

Even though you've been using ASP. NET for a while, how much do you really know about ASP. NET configuration files? While you've probably touched the Web. config file from time to time, there are some nuances involved in configuring ASP.

Razor View Engine and Add Namespace in Web.Config Problem

  

Hello,

I am working on a MVC project with Razor view engine and I have the following:

  @MvcHtmlString.Create(
    Bundle.Css()
      .Add("~/Styles/FlyOnDreams.FlyOnPages.Base.css.less")
      .Add("~/Styles/FlyOnDreams.FlyOnPages.Core.css.less")
      .Render("~/Styles/FlyOnDreams.FlyOnPages.Core.min.css"))


This only works if I have on the same view the following:

  @using SquishIt.Framework;

However, on my Web.Config I have the following:

    <pages>

      <!-- Namespaces -->
      <namespaces>
        <add namespace="System"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Ajax"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Html"/>
        <add namespace="System.Web.Routing"/>
        <add namespace="Microsoft.Web.Mvc"/>
        <add namespace="SquishIt.Framework"/>
      </namespaces>

    </pages>


So if "SquishIt.Framework" namespace is added on Web.Config why do I need to have the @using on the view?

How in web.config work in MVC

  

Hi,

I would like to secure any URL below the http://MyServer/Admins and limit it to a specific role.

In webforms it was straight forward. I just put a child web.config in the /Admin/ folder and add <authorization>  <allow roles> tags to it.

How would be the equivalent technique in MVC?

Thank you,

pageParserFilterType in Web.config

  

Hi there,

I'm asking this question AFTER I've already solved my problem - I just wanted more info about it.

Each time I tried to create a ViewUserControl with a specific model template like this:

<%@ Control Language="C#" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewUserControl<MyProject.Web.ContactFormContent>" %>

The control would not compile properly and intellisense would not show things like Html and ViewData.

However, when I add the attribute pageParserFilterType to the <pages> in web.config, everything works:

      pageParserFilterType="System.Web.Mvc.ViewTypeParserFilter, System.Web.Mvc,
        Version=3.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35"

<pages
      pageParserFilterType="System.Web.Mvc.ViewTypeParserFilter, System.Web.Mvc,
        Version=3.0.0.0

All my server-controls became unrecognized!!! like there's compilation error or web.config missing!

  

hi!

please help - the problem is in post subject.

I have lots of warnings with following text:

"Warning 10 Element 'HyperLink' is not a known element. This can occur if there is a compilation error in the Web site, or the web.config file is missing. C:\Users\Pavel\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\WebSites\BioWebSite\ToScientist.aspx 26 18 C:\...\BioWebSite\" 

But web.confg is there! And there's no compilation error!

Site builds just fine. And If I upload it to my hoster - it works!

 

But with all these errors I cant add controls to pages - VS2010 adds hyperlink without ID, and intelisens stoped to work.

Strange, but in my other project (web-application) I have no such difficuty.


Need help with web.config security - Can't figure out where the security group is located in the ap

  

Hi,

   We have sepeartate folder called Managers in one of our web apps. And there was a security build around that folder in a web config file as below

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration>
    <appSettings/>
    <connectionStrings/>
    <system.web>
      <authorization>
        <allow roles="AllManagers"/>
        <deny users="*"/>
      </authorization>
    </system.web>
</configuration>

I couldn't figure out where this group located in the application. Usually all our groups are defined in Active directory but except this group. I am not sure if this is defined on the web server or some where in the app itself. Because in the process of figuring out I have changed it to <allow users="*"/> just to make sure if this is the group we are looking for and YES It is and I have access to it. So I need to find out where this is located and add myself as one of the users to this group.

Can any one help me with this mystery.

Thanks in advance,

L
