Flash Movie not Running

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
Hi! I've added an ShockwaveFlashObject inside my Windows Form. I've used the following code to run an SWF file: this->axShockwaveFlash1->BringToFront(); this->axShockwaveFlash1->Movie::set(gcnew System::String(StringToWString(spath).c_str())); //this->axShockwaveFlash1->CallFunction("<invoke" + "name=\"UserInformation\"returntype=\"void\"></invoke>"); //this->axShockwaveFlash1->SetVariable("file", "index.swf"); this->axShockwaveFlash1->Play(); This code is inside the form load event. But when I run the application, the movie is not playing. What to do to run the swf file from Windows forms? I'm using Managed C++/CLI for this application.

Flash movie security


Hello all.

I've got a bit of an issue with an ASP.Net application that I'm developing at work.  The application holds preview videos for clients in Flash format (flv).  These are streamed using a flash movie called "flowplayer".

We would like to let clients send links to people to view these files.  The problem however is that we need to be able to secure these flash movies so that they cannot be viewed by just anyone.

Currently, the application creates a username and password and provides a link to a preview page.  The person logs in and can see a list of the movies they have been given access to.  The users must log in to see this list and to ultimately click through to play the movie.

The problem is that anyone can simply input the url of the flash preview file (ie http://www.oursite.com/previews/previewmovie.flv) to view the movie - without having to log in.

Would anyone have any ideas as to how to secure this setup?  I was thinking about ASP.Net security (integrated with SQL Server) but that might be a bit overkill considering there are possibly hundreds of invites being generated a day.

I'd be grateful for any help.

Thanks in advance as usual.


Show grand total running total in GridView Footer

In many scenarios we need to display Running total as well as Grand total in GridView footer. In this post i will try to explain in an easy way that how we can display running total & Grand total in a GridView footer combindly. To explain this solution using an example here i use a sales order report. The report contains all sales order amount in a tabular way. I will use a GridView to display sales order amount and use GridView footer to display Running total & Grand total. Let we have a customer table with id and name column plus an orders table with OrderID,CustomerID,OrderDate & Amount. Now our goal is to show all customers order with amount as well as page wise running total & grand total. Note that running total is necessary when you enable paging in a GridView where as Grand total is always you can consider.

Client script not running


Dear all,

in my MVC 2 application, and in the shared Master Page I wrote this little script for menu handling :

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!

High Availability: Keep Your Code Running with the Reliability Features of the .NET Framework


Reliability requires the capacity to execute a sequence of operations in a deterministic way, even under exceptional conditions. This allows you to ensure that resources are not leaked and that you can maintain state consistency without relying on application domain unloading (or worse, process restarts) to fix any corrupted state. Unfortunately, in the.NET Framework, not all exceptions are deterministic and synchronous, which makes it difficult to write code that is always deterministic in its ability to execute a predetermined sequence of operations. In this article Stephen Toub will show you why, and explore features of the .NET Framework 2.0 that help you to mitigate these situations and write more reliable code.

.NET Internals: Examine Running Processes Using Both Managed and Unmanaged Code


There are plenty of times when you need to get information on running processes, not the least of which is during performance tuning. Using the techniques in this article and special .NET classes you'll see how to get a process' ID, name, priority, number of threads, kernel handle, and memory consumption, as well as its user-mode, kernel-mode, and total elapsed running time and put them to use in a custom app called AssemblyBrowser.

Code Name Indigo: A Guide to Developing and Running Connected Systems with Indigo


This article describes a collection of new programming frameworks that are part of "Longhorn," the upcoming version of Windows. "Indigo," the code name for this framework, provides rich support for service-oriented design that is complementary to traditional object-oriented approaches. Indigo marries the best features of .NET Remoting, ASMX, and .NET Enterprise Services into a unified programming and administration model. Indigo's deep support for standard protocols, including HTTP, XML, and SOAP, makes it easier to integrate applications and services without sacrificing security or reliability.

Develop a Web Service: Up and Running with the SOAP Toolkit for Visual Studio


The new Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) Toolkit for Visual Studio 6.0 provides the infrastructure for developers to build, expose, and consume Web services. With a few exceptions that are outlined in the toolkit, the SOAP Toolkit complies with the SOAP version 1.1 specification. It includes the Remote Object Proxy Engine (ROPE), a Service Description and Code Generation Wizard, and code that provides ASP and ISAPI reference implementations of SOAP listeners. This article describes the tools and the object model of the SOAP Toolkit, and then demonstrates ASP and ISAPI implementations of a functional Web service using this toolkit.

Is your code running in a SharePoint Sandbox?


You could execute a function call that is not allowed in the sandbox (for example call a static method on SPSecurity) and catch the exception. A better approach is to test the friendly name of you app domain:

AppDomain.CurrentDomain.FriendlyName returns "Sandboxed Code Execution Partially Trusted Asp.net AppDomain"

Because you can never be sure that this string changes in the future, a safer approach will be:


See http://www.sharepointoverflow.com/questions/2051/how-to-check-if-code-is-running-as-sandboxed-solution for a discussion on this topic.

Flash player doesn't send cookies while requesting an aspx page



 I'm developing a web-site, that uses SWFUpload for multiple files upload to the server. Page, that uploades files, is accessable only to registered user. Authentication is done via web-forms (authentication mode="Forms" in Web.config). Flash uploades files to special web page - upload.aspx. In IE everything works great, but Flash player in non-IE browser (in Firefox, for example) does not send any cookies to upload.aspx. Because of it no sesion and no authentication information is available in this page.

 I can pass all the information, necessary for uploading, in GET-parameters, which upload.aspx recieve. But this is a serious security hole and I don't want to expose session information. I can pass session identifier in GET-request. But the question is the following: how can I restore session information from the session identifier? How can I make HttpContext.Current.User point to currently logged in user in this case?

Any help will be appreciated.

Serial approval workflow keeps running


I have a serial approval workflow created out of the box. The setting cancell this workflow when the document is rejected is selected. But if one of the approvers rejects it the workflow keeps running. After this is it will give acces denied errors for the other approvers.

So for example what is happening. The workflow is started and sends a email to persone 1. This persone approves so the workflow sends a email to persone 2. Persone 2 decided to reject the document. Now i want the workflow to be cancelled, but it keep running and sends a email to persone 3 for approval. If persone 3 opens the workflow he get's a acces denied error, i guess because of the reject.

Anyone has a idea what is happening here?
