Edit CSS path on file that is dynamically created by ASP.NET

Hi,I'm not very familiar with .NET so bear with me. The website is question is built in ASP.NET and is using Themes.The external CSS link is outputted on the .master page dynamically by ASP.NET (so I've been told), apparently it generates this code from any CSS file located in /App_Themes/The problem is I need the link to the CSS to begin with a "/" so it points to the root directory.Currently the syntax is: <link href="App_Themes/file/file.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />And I need it to be <link href="/App_Themes/file/file.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" />Is there anyway I can achieve this?Much thanks,Nick

Code Name WinFS: Revolutionary File Storage System Lets Users Search and Manage Files Based on Conte


One of the monumental problems organizations face today is aggregating information that's stored in disparate formats. Knowledge workers have long wanted to be able to search for content independent of format. The next version of the Windows operating system, code-named "Longhorn," boasts a new storage subsystem that makes that task easier. That subsystem, code-named "WinFS," allows the user to perform searches based on the metadata of the stored item, regardless of what type of file it is or which application created it. This article covers the basic architecture of WinFS and explains how to use the WinFS managed API.

dynamically change html code when user is authenticated


So I have a fairly simple web site which allows an Administrator to edit some data in a database which is displayed on some web pages.

The main navigation on the site is shown in the code snippet below. The Admin link goes to a Login.aspx which allows the Administrator to log in - once authenticated they get sent to the data edit page.

So my question is, how could I dynamically add a link to the data edit page in the <ul> list below once the user is authenticated ?

This would allow the authenticated user to see links to the secure pages in the main navigation bar.

<%--Top Navigation Menu --%>
<div id="topMenu">
<li><a href="default.aspx">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="introduction.aspx">Introduction</a></li>
<li><a href="curriculum.aspx">Curriculum</a></li>
<li><a href="times.aspx">Times & Fees</a></li>
<li><a href="staff.aspx">Staff</a></li>
<li><a href="login.aspx">Admin</a></li>
</div><%--End of topMenu Container--%>
<div id="clear"></div><%--Floats items cleared End of Master Page--%>

Moved from WinXP to Win7 - don't see choice to open file in read only or edit mode


I just recently moved from Win XP Pro SP3 to Win 7 32-bit Pro. I am logging into domain X normally. Our Sharepoint 2007 server authenticates only on domain Y. So I start Internet Explorer with "run as different user" and provide my domain Y credentials. All fine. 

In win XP, after I did this, when I click on an Excel file on Sharepoint, I would get a dialog asking if I wanted to check out and edit or open as read only. 

In win7, I don't get that choice. The file simply opens, and I get a bar at the top which allows me to check out the file if I wanted to. 

How can I restore the functionality I used to have, with the dialog for checking out the file before opening it?

How to change this code to allow more file uploads

I have a page currently setup to upload 1 image at a time, it uploaded the image, then creates a thumbnail for that image in the same directory. Client needs / wants to be able to upload a few more images at the same time. So i would like to see if i can use the existing code that works, but setup to upload a few more images and process them all to create the thumbnails. I currently have a page that allows them to upload 5 images at a time and that works fine, but its just simple uploading the images, nothing else is happening at that moment. Here is the code i am working with: protected void UploadBtn_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) { String pth = Server.MapPath("~/gallery/homebirth/images/"); String UploadedFile = MyFile.PostedFile.FileName; int ExtractPos = UploadedFile.LastIndexOf("/") + 1; //to retrieve only Filename from the complete path String UploadedFileName = UploadedFile.Substring(ExtractPos, UploadedFile.Length - ExtractPos); // Display information about posted file. Div is invisible by default FileName.InnerHtml = UploadedFileName; MyContentType.InnerHtml = MyFile.PostedFile.ContentType; ContentLength.InnerHtml = MyFile.PostedFile.ContentLength.ToString(); //div is made visible FileDetails.Visible = true; // Save up

Sharing a file handler between managed and unmanaged code?

This is related to Interops, and sharing a file handler between a WPF UI and a native C++ DLL. I'm working on an application using MVVM as a guide. I want to use WPF for the UI, however it is a complex scientific application, which requires performance, and I am using C++ along with some GPU based code for all the modeling/processing. This is a Windows based app, no real network comm involved. I come across a challenge in terms of storing data. The data is multi-dimensional, and can be projected in many ways, while each projection can be processed/filtered in many ways too. I end up with a tree of data, with the raw data at the root and many branches. XML seems like an ideal way to store the information about this dataset, but as far as the raw data, it is not so convenient. I read about base64 encoding and the various binary-XML techniques, but see a major issue: the size of the converted data (150% of the raw) which in my case is huge (raw data is easily 200MBs+, and the multitude of projections can make it several 100's of MBs easily). There is the option of saving several files, but then it may become a nightmare for a user to 'transfer' files properly, so a one-file system seems best. I basically need to have the XML-like structure accessible to the UI, while the raw data needs to be accessed by the unmanaged code. So I was thinking I could concat
