Session State in ASHX file


Hi People,

I have been trying unsuccessfully to retrieve a Session varaible from within an ASHX file that i'm using to build an XML file.

What I am trying to achieve is quite simple really.

My ASHX file is used to dynamically build an XML file so that I can then bind it to a TreeView control later on. However the dynamic part isn't quite working because the ID that I need from the session seems to not be passed into the ASHX file.

I have tried using the following methods to do this:

1) Include interfaces IRequiresSessionState and IReadOnlySessionState

2) Tried accessing the value like this: Session["ID"] or context.Session["ID"] or HttpContext.Current.Session["ID"]

I am setting the Session variable in the MasterPage's code behind.

Can anyone help?

File Upload to an .ashx Script.


Hoping that someone can help me with this. I've been tearing my hair out for days looking for sources and coming up with nothing.

Basically, the scenario is this: I'm working on a project whereby an iPhone will make an HTTP-POST call to an .ashx file on my site. The POST will consist of some fields and a file.

I'm having difficulty - read that as no luck what-so-ever - in finding the form fields or the file when I look at the HTTPContext object in the debug mode of Visual Studio. And if I look at HTTPContext.Request.Files.Count (where I would expect to find a file count) the value is always zero!!

Please help, very confused by this!

While building my excel file, do an ajax call



I'm in trouble here because of a little problem.

In fact, in my MVC project, I have a controller which build a Excel file and the return value is a FileResult.

for now, I'm using this like that :

<form id ="TransacExportForm" method="POST" action="/theproject/thecontroller/theaction" style="display:none;">


With the javascript :


As I expected, after 25 seconds, the browser send the window popup to download the file (which is what I want)

It works perfectly, but it's so long... It's why I would do some ajax calls in order to have a "loading gif", and when the file is "created", the browser send the message to download the file.

I tried a loooot of things (get, ajax, etc...). The file is created but the browser don't send any message to download the file.

If someone could give me an answer, it would be very great :D !

File Listing and Session Modification

Hi Guys, After learning asp.net for a few months and viewing this forum for a few weeks, I have started to get confused with the setting and security issues of asp.net. Hope someone could answer me. Problem 1: I am curious why we have to encrypt connection string, appsetting and more in the web.config file even though file listing is set to "not allowed" on server setting. Does it mean some strangers can still view and steal such file from server? Problem 2: I know that session id is sort of protected but could hacker be able to change the information inside ? Let say hacker browser my webpage and some data are stored in the session cookies, could they change the information inside the session cookies? Thank you very much and I greatly appreciate your help.
