Edit.aspx page hanging on text entry

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am trying convert a project from asp classic to asp.net.  The asp classic version has a edit table page that allows users to enter data into textfields that contain html mark up.  like <b>, <i>, etc.  I have been working with the dynamic data video collection and when I try to hit update after entering any html markup in a textfield, in edit.aspx, the page just stops.  It does not throw an error nor does not redirect to the list.aspx on update or cancel, and im pulling my hair out trying to figure out why its doing this.  I have tested various different data types and nothing is helping.  Anyone have any ideas?  The error happens on the sample code provided on the dynamic data page.

Problem passing a text box value from aspx.cs page to SelectParameters in aspx page

Correct Way to Insert Data from Text Boxes on ASPX page into SQL Database Using VB


Please help me, I have been trying this for a week now and this is how far I have gotten.


I am new to this, and I am using MS Visual Web Developer Express.


OK - This is what I have come up with, but when I run it I get the following error  (I decided to just try to use a simplified table just to get an understanding of the basic concepts):

Launch CMD File From ASPX Page


My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.


We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.


Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?

The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.

reference from menubuttons to text parts in article on the same page


Hi, I'm searching now for hours but couldn't find it.Cry

In my menu i have several buttons which (by a <a href..) should go the a part of an article that is in the same form.

Menu button : What is a database should go to the page default.aspx and in there is an article published.
A part of this article is having a piece of text about "what is a database"

Menu button: how to make a query should go to this same article in the same page but then to the part that is have the piece about the query. The next could be an example of what i'm doing:

    <li><a href="default.aspx ?????>what is a database</a></li>
    <li><a href="default.aspx ?????>what is a query</a></li>

Where my question marks are, there should be a connection to that particular piece of text.
In each article part there is an ID="text1" and the second part id="text2"

How shoudl i do that, Should i use a question mark.
Please give me some guidance how to structure the <li> statement or a pointer where I can read about it.


Visual Studio closes itself by opening aspx-Page designer after Windows Update


Hey Guys,

I've a problem with my Visual Studio.

On the 13th of August 2010 i installed a Windows update on my vista sp2 pc. For this date my Visual Studio 2008 sp 1 always has closed itself by opening an aspx-page in designer view. There is no error message just closing the window. I restored a backup of my windows from the time before updating it and it helped, i could open aspx pages in the design view till the update has been installed again automatically after rebooting the pc. I can't disable windows updates, cause it's my pc at work and safety is very important. I hope you could help me out of this disaster.



Detecting Edit or Insert Page


I am coding a .cs file that handles the metadata for a particular table. I am putting a custom validation that allows me to update or insert only if the PubMedID is not already in the database. This would be easy except that the PMID should also be allowed to be null as some of the references in the database were not from PubMed. So i perform a query on the database to see if there is already an identical PMID in the database. This works great when using Insert. However, when using Edit, it does not. The PMID is already in the database because the one currently being edited has the same PMID!!! So I know exactly how to change my query etc. However, I do not know how to tell from inside this Edit/Insert agnostic page, which one it is being called from. Thanks for your help!

How to use a drop down list to edit in the standard Edit.aspx with DD?


Hey All,

I'm brand new to Dynamic Data and to ASP.NET.  I've been able to fumble around and get the calendar extender up and running and a few other customization options implemented, but I can't seem to get this drop down list to work - even after reading tons of online info.  The good news is that my web page/application is VERY simple, so hopefully you guys can help me out.  I'm working in VB btw.

I have a list of road projects submitted to me by local governments.  One of the fields is SponsoringAgency, which has a limited number of possible entries (the names of member governments).  Thus, when they submit a new project, or edit an existing one, I want to limit the input into the field "SponsoringAgency." I'm trying to use a dropdownlist because I'm familiar with it from Access, but it may not be the best approach.  Imagine you just setup a brand new, standard DD website, how would you get this to work?

Methods tried and failed (probably because I don't understand them fully):

UIHint - The closest I can get with this is an error saying that since SponsoringAgency isn't a Foreign Key, I'm out of luck.

Creating a SponsoringAgency Table - In my data layer, I created a second table with a list of government names.  I then tried se

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.

How to create a single entry page for site collections in MOSS 2007



I have  7 site collections containing a few hundred team collaboration sites. Some users are internal (intranet) but most are external (extranet). Extranet users are experiencing problems with losing links to their sites and forgetting which URLs to use. So I would like to create a single entry page that all users can enter after the logon process, which shows a list of sites they have permission to access, and other user-specific information. Perhaps relevant documents, tasks, recently modified documents etc.

I know this sounds like a 'My Site' but we want to use use a general welcome page instead. We use Windows authentication.
What is the best way of doing this and is it something that can be done in SharePoing Designer or does it need to be done in Visual Studio?

Many thanks in advance.

User Control not accessing the value of the properties send to it from the aspx page.


I have a dynamic accordion on a page. Set its datasource to an object of paged data source.The user control is in the accordions content template. When i was writing code the properties were showing but after giving the values of databases as


<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname1")%>' Property2='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname2")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>


but the values shows null, these properties are shown as textboxes text property by user control.

MoreOver when I checked the values of database Items.So i made a textbox instead of usercontrol here as

<asp:TextBox ID="txtTest" runat="server" Text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Columname1")%>'></asp:TextBox>

It is showing the correct value. And if i pass the value directly it is also showing correctly like

<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1="XYZ")%>' Property2="ABC")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>

. where I am wrong

the problem is eval is not passing the value to usercont

IE hanging when trying to leave a page


All I want to do is to present my user with a simple confirmation that asks if they want to leave the page or not if they have data on the screen that is not yet saved. I've read many posts on the net and I know the following is the preferred solution, but seems like I can't trap the error in the try..catch blcok properly for IE to continue to execute. I try the same exact code in Google Chrome, & Firefox and it works fine. Meaning, when I click on the Cancel button, the page is not unloaded and the user still has the chance to save their data. This obvioulsy doesn't work with IE. It just hangs.

I would appreciate somebody to give me the correct exact syntax on how to accomplish this. Notice the boldfaced code. Below, is my js:


// Used when leaving the page
        window.onbeforeunload = unloadPage;
        function unloadPage() {
            var startPosition = document.getElementById("<%= startPosition.ClientID%>");
            var hdnRecordSaved = document.getElementById("<%= hdnRecordSaved.ClientID %>");


Changing aspx page causes session data to be lost...


Strange but true. Any ideas what might be causing this?


Way of showing ID on the DispForm.aspx page without programming?

Is there a way of showing the ID system field on the DispForm.aspx page without programming.
I don't want to use a dataview, as new fields being added in the future won't appear automatically anymore this way on the DispForm.aspx page. 

I found somewhere that I could use a calculated field, with as formula =ID (so, in fact just copying the value of the ID field in the calculated field), which is one option.

Are there other options/solutions known?
