HTML Entities in Data Annotations possible?

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

hello,   I am trying to place HTML entities in the System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations.DisplayAttribute.  However the text always renders as non HTML on a browser.  Is there a way to do this, so I can render HTML?

For example

[Display(Name = "Student"s Email")]

public object SEmail { get; set; }


'Student?s Email' in the browser.

ASP.NET 4.0 Dynamic Data and Many to Many Entity Framework Entities

I did not play much with Dynamic Data controls in VS2008 and just made a cool discovery in VS2010 Beta 2. This may not even be new, but as I'm sitting 30,000+ feet over the Atlantic ocean, I don't have access to VS2008 at the moment to check.

Rendering data with HTML tags in the DD Gridview for a selected column


I am having trouble finding out where and how to HTML Encode a cell's data on the Dynamic Data (v4.0) gridview of List.aspx.  As a simple case, suppose I have formatted cell data that is A<br/>B in the DB.    Obviously, I want A stacked on B in the cell.

It seems gridView1.HtmlEncode = true has gone away.

So maybe I'll try to catch it on the RowDataBound event:

protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)

            if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
                // Html Encode the cells


but this event never fires?

Has anyone figured out how to properly render HTML tags data in the List.aspx's GridView1? 

If I figure this out, then I can add a MetaAttribute called something like [EncodeAsHtml(true)] and be on my way.  Thanks!

Dynamic Data Entities Modal GridViewPager not showing


I am using the ModalEF template, converted to a web application.

The GridViewPager is not showing up, though everything else works fine (filters, updates, etc).

I have tried several things in the last two weeks, to no avail.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The GridViewPager.ascx.cs Page_Load fires, but the Page_PreRender does not.

Custom Field - SP is creating HyperLinks and using HTML entities

Hello. I'm seeking help with a problem related to a custom field in SharePoint 2010. Our Custom Field builds upon (extends) the SPFieldMultiLineText field. Data saved to our Custom Field is being processed by SharePoint before it is sent to the client. For example < and > is replaced by HTML entities (&lt; and &gt;). Text such as http://bing.com and mail@bing.com is automatically being converted to hyper links (<a href="mailto:mail@bing.com">mail@bing.com</a>). Is it in any way possible to have SharePoint deliver the data as it was stored in the custom field? We don't want it to replace HTML with HTML entites, nor should it create hyperlinks automatically. I have attached our XSL file below. <xsl:stylesheet xmlns:x="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/dsp" version="1.0" exclude-result-prefixes="xsl msxsl ddwrt" xmlns:ddwrt="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebParts/v2/DataView/runtime" xmlns:asp="http://schemas.microsoft.com/ASPNET/20" xmlns:__designer="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebParts/v2/DataView/designer" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:msxsl="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xslt" xmlns:SharePoint="Micros

Entity Framework POCO and WCF Data Service - Lazy-loading (expand?) related entities?

I've followed ScottGu article on creating an Entity Framework POCO classes for NerdDinners (right now there are only 2 classes, Dinner and RSVP. I then created a WCF Data Service class, which points to my EF class (NerdDinner), everything is working fine, except I can't lazy-load or expand related entities. For example, I want to get all load all the Dinners and their related RSVPs, something like this throw an error:var result = (from d in db.Dinners.Expand("RSVPs")                      select d);The error is a null reference error:at System.Data.Services.Serializers.SyndicationSerializer.WriteObjectProperties(IExpandedResult expanded, Object customObject, ResourceType resourceType, Uri absoluteUri, String relativeUri, SyndicationItem item, DictionaryContent content, EpmSourcePathSegment currentSourceRoot) at System.Data.Services.Serializers.SyndicationSerializer.WriteEntryElement(IExpandedResult expanded, Object element, ResourceType expectedType, Uri absoluteUri, String relativeUri, SyndicationItem target) ... ... ...Any idea why or what I need to do to load related contents?Thank you very much.

Entities Data Models with multiple Categories using a membership table

(Using SQL Server 2008 and ASP.NET MVC2) I have a simple business table and a category table. I have a 3rd table to map business to category, a many-to-many relationship. the Map table contains a BusinessID and CategoryID. I'm lost as to how I can load the categories into my Business View Model using the entities model.Without incorporating categories, my code looks like this: var businessList = from b in entitiesDB.Businesses select new Models.BusinessViewModel { BusinessID = b.BusinessID, Name = b.Name } with Business View Model defined as: public class BusinessViewModel { [ScaffoldColumn(false)] public Guid BusinessID { get; set; } public string Name { get; set; } public List<Models.CategoryViewModel> Categories { get; set; } } but if i want to populate the Categories with the mapped categories, how would one do that?Thanks in advance for any help!

Defining Validation rules with Data annotations - ???


I am having following problem:

Defined RegisterModel class - with some validation rules for creating new users, and this works fine.

Then I get this class, strip few properties and wanted to reuse it as UserInfo_Form_Model,   for editing user properites.

No changes, just deleted few items, renamed and reused in strongly typed View for editing.

And result of validation is: -

[DisplayName("Name")] works fine, showing correct

[StringLength(20, ErrorMessage = "xxxx...")] - not working, no message showed when suppose to be one

[Required(ErrorMessage = "xxxx.")] - not working, not showing messages when delete required values?

but  (ModelState.IsValid) is false when I checked it in controller (it had to be because required value is missing)?

Is it this only partially correct and how this can be?

Well this is a bit frustrating because it cant be simpler than this and I cant make this simple code reuse. :|

Quite a few gotchas I already found or I am coding completely wrong.

and function

CREATE FUNCTION fnGetMyViewResult(@paramField nvarchar)
RETURN SELECT * FROM MyFirstView WHERE MyFirsView.Field1 = @paramField

but when i run entity data model wizzard from VS 2010 i can chose only from tables, views and stored procedures. There is no way (atleast no way i know about) to add my sql function to MVC model...

I can see function in ServerExplorer but not in wizzard....

Data Grid and HTML Encoding Issues, Need Urgent Help


Hi All,

I am facing an issue. I have a datagrid in aspx page. I am binding a dataset data to this datagrid [simple binding]. It works with out any issues. However whenever the data contains any Html tags like 'Test Data With <HTML> tags'
the data in the datagrid cell will show only 'Test Data With <> tags'. The contents inside <> tag will disappear.

My code will look like this.

DataGrid.DataSource = SomeDataSet

I am using C# as the code behind language. Also the data population to the grid is dynamic and depends on the SQL Query used for it. Hence my columns are not predefined. The DataGrid's AutoGeneratedColumns property is True [Number of columns and columns header will change dynamically depending on the query which pulls the data from the DB]

Kindly help with this.

Thanks in advance

Join Entities in BDC For Business Data Field In List



I'm having a devil of a time joining two tables for a BDC to be used as a Business Data field in a list. I've seen plently of examples  connecting two tables to use with web parts, however i haven't seen anything about using an association in a list. Before i continue to beat myself up i need to know that this is possible.


If that's confusing here's what i'm trying to do.

I have two tables Locations and Region. I need the Region_Name from the region table based on the Location_Id (primary key) from the Location table. Locations is connected to Region by Region_id as a foreign key.


Any help would be immensely appreciated.

EF: Databinding with Data from Multiple Entities


Hey guys

I've got three different tables of which I need to take data from to use in a gridview.

I have no problem binding data from a single table to a gridview using EF, but how would I go about joining?

I'm thinking about using Linq to Entities to do it, just not sure of the syntax?


How to insert dynamic data into an XML or HTML format table


Hi there,

I have a technical problem as the title described. I need to achieve this by SSIS that means the destination file could be XML or HTML. However, before inserting dynamic data from source, an XML or HTML format table must be predefined. In the final destination file, the predefined table and dynamic data will be both output.

Can anybody give some suggestions or reference links regarding to this? Appreciate it.
