How to turn off styling for an element

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I've created the following generic style which affects all textboxes and works fine:

textarea:focus, input[type="text"]:focus, textarea:hover, input[type="text"]:hover
    border:#35a5e5 1px solid;
    box-shadow: 0 0 5px rgba(81, 203, 238, 1);
    -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 5px rgba(81, 203, 238, 1);
    -moz-box-shadow: 0 0 5px rgba(81, 203, 238, 1);

Thing is, I have one text box which I don't want to be affected by this style (ie - no styles) - how do I do that for this one textbox?

Many thanks

jQuery: Styling DropDownList Alternating Items (Rows)

In the following example, I will show how you can style any asp:dropdownlist very easily.

The example demonstrates how you can change alternating row items background color, using the fadeTo() to add a nice touch in the dropdownlist. You can change alt rows with a couple lines.

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?

How to turn off optimistic concurrency checking?


I have run into a problem with optimistic concurrency in my dynamic data application (where all relevant settings are at their default values); when I try to update or delete one of my tables, I see the following error:

 Exception type: ChangeConflictException
 Exception message: Row not found or changed.

I am the only user of my database at the moment, so I can guarantee that the data both exists and has not been changed outside the application!

Various forums have suggested that the way to deal with this is to set the column attributes so that the concurrency checking is disabled; i.e.

[global::System.Data.Linq.Mapping.ColumnAttribute(Storage="_PropSurname", DbType="NVarChar(255)", UpdateCheck=UpdateCheck.Never)]

However, to do this manually through the Visual Studio designer will take me hours (I have a lot of tables) and if I then change the schema of one of the tables in the DB, won't I then have to do it all again?  I've tried editing the .designer.cs file directly but my changes are subsequently overwritten (as expected).

All suggestions gratefully received!

Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'CurrencyProxy.CurrencyServiceSoap



I created 2 projects in my solution:

  1. Classic asp.net web service (asmx)
  2. Class library project which references service
  3. web site project which references class library project
  4. Windows app project which references service.

Both projects were created in 3.5 framework and in Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2.

I added web service reference to Class library project. When it asked for namespace I typed "CurrencyProxy". Projects build ok, but when I run web app, Class library throws an error: Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'CurrencyProxy.CurrencyServiceSoap' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element.

I believe it has something to do with app.config in Class library project. Here is part from app.config:

<binding name="CurrencyServiceSoap" closeTimeout=

'element.className' is null or not an object



I just downloaded the project, compiled it and ran it right out of the box and when I put the mouse pointer over or remove the mouse pointer from either MenuItem in the menu demo, I generate this error:

'element.className' is null or not an object

It points to this javascript method:

updateClassName: function(operation, element, name, value) {
        this[operation + 'String'](
                function() {
                    return element.className;
                function(newValue) {
                    element.className = newValue;

Modify Menu adapter to show selected


Hey, I need some help modifying the menu adapter code to give child <ul> elements a class value indicating that the parent is selected. It should render like this:

InfoPath: Turn User Input into XML with Custom Forms Using Office InfoPath 2003


Office InfoPath 2003 is a new Microsoft Office product that lets you design your own data collection forms that, when submitted, turn the user-entered data into XML for any XML-supporting process to use. With an InfoPath solution in place, you can convert all those commonly used paper forms into Microsoft Office-based forms and end the cycle of handwriting and reentering data into your systems. Today organizations are beginning to realize the value of the mountains of data they collect every day, how hard it is to access it, and are striving to mine it effectively. InfoPath will aid in the design of effective data collection systems. Here the author shows you how to get started.

UH-OH! i turned Simple Publishing On - How do i turn it Off?


I have recently deployed a site, where i turned Simple Publishing On in my sitedefinition.


The reason why i turned it On was to get rid of the approval workflow which my client did not need.


However it appear that not only the approval workflow was removed, but also the scheduling feature - therefore i will have to turn it Off again.


It will be easy for me to deploy a new sitedefinition, whith the SimplePublishing set to Off, but a lot of sites has allready been created using the "On" version.


I was thinking about making a small application that enumerated my Webs collection to accomplish that - but i cannot find what properties to use.


Does anybody know how to do this? Or even better - know if there is a way to make a simpler approval workflow?



Reg: Turn on more accessible mode & Skip to main content link message on Infopath2007 browser form



I have a infopath 2007 browser enabled form with c# code behind . The Infopath form is embeded\hosted in to a custom layouts page (.aspx) on MOSS 2007. The issue is when users use keyboard to fill the form, they often use <TAB> & <Enter> keys. So when they are using the tabbing at one location in the form, I have a "Contact selector" field, I enter a name & then hit <TAB> key the focus now comes to "name cheker" I then hit <Enter> key, I hit <TAB> again, the focus now comes to a button named "Accept", I hit <Enter> key & a filed below is populated with the values from user profile service. Now when I hit <TAB> I expect the focus should now come to that automatically populated field below the "Contact selctor". Because Infopath assings the tab order by default form top to bottom & left to right and I havent changed that default tab order.   

But, the focus moves to top of the webpage with a clickable link to "Turn on more accessible mode" I hit tab one more time & the link on top changes to "Skip to main content". This bheaviour does not seem to be happning in other form controls when they hit <Tab>, <Enter>. There are couple of areas on the infopath form where I have such a controls (layed ou

OK, I must be missing something here. 

If I turned on Alerts for one library and then decide I don't want to get the alerts anymore, how do I turn them Off?

Styling GridView with GridViewStyleKey?

Hi, all. I've got a WPF application I'm working on (my first, in fact!) and one of the windows has a ListView that I'm using much like an Explorer window. That is, I've got a GridView resource available for it, but also a handful of custom views deriving from ViewBase for things like icon view, list view, etc. The thing is, though, I'd like to apply custom style/template to the ListView and from what I've read, the ListView picks up its style cues from its active view. So I'm trying to design styles/templates for each view starting with the GridView but I'm stuck. According to the MSDN documentation , you can define a style with a key of {x:Static GridView.GridViewStyleKey} and it should apply to ListView controls with a GridView view but it doesn't seem to work that way. I've boiled it down to the simplest scenario I could. MainWindow.xaml: <Window x:Class="GridViewTestApp.MainWindow" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525"> <Window.Resources> <XmlDataProvider x:Key="People"> <x:XData> <People xmlns=""> <Person Name="Ian" Age="26" /> <Person Name="Adam" Age="31&quo

'Unspecified error' doing sp_xml_preparedocument on XML element with a long attribute

In SQL Management Studio 2008 (connected to SQL 2005 database), I get this:The XML parse error 0x80004005 occurred on line number 2, near the XML text "<item value="&#xD;&#xA;libname...Msg 6602, Level 16, State 2, Procedure sp_xml_preparedocument, Line 1The error description is 'Unspecified error'.When I do this declare @doc nvarchar(max), @idoc int set @doc = '<item value="&#xD;&#xA;libname..." />' EXEC sp_xml_preparedocument @idoc OUTPUT, @doc when the value of the @value attribute is actually a string of somewhat over 830000 characters.If I truncate the string somewhat, the statements execute successfully.Anyone know how to fix this?  (and "use shorter attributes" is not an acceptable answer :-)I would use XQuery except that I can't figure out how to get the equivalent of @mp:id and @mpparentid to give me the hierarchical structure information I need.  If anyone knows how to do that, I'd appreciate a hand there too!
