Problem with Web Handler - Code works as .aspx, but not .ashx

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

I'm trying to cover a page that is code-only to a web handler. However, I'm having problems figuring out why the code works when used in the code-behind for the .aspx file but not the .ashx page.

.ASPX Page Code Behind


Partial Class launchsite
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Protected Sub Page_Load() Handles Me.Load

        If Len(Session("UserDashboardURL")) > 0 Then
            If Len(Session("UserCurrentShowNumber")) = 0 Then
                Response.Redirect("~/development/content/dashboards/" + Session("UserDashboardURL"))
                If InStr(Session("UserDashboardURL"), "?") = 0 Then
                    Response.Redirect("~/development/content/dashboards/" + Session("UserDashboardURL") & "?ShowNumber=" & Session("UserCurrentShowNumber"))
                    Response.Redirect("~/development/content/dashboards/" + Session("UserDashboardURL"))
                End If
            End If
        End If

    End Sub

End Class

Code works on aspx but not ascx


Not sure which category to put this question in, so I will put it in here.

Just to give you an idea of the layout of my solution, I have the main project, along with 2 class libraries, BLL and DAL.  (Business Logic Layer and Data Access Layer)

The BLL refers to the DAL and the main project refers to the BLL.

I had a test website and the code worked fine, but the same code will not work on the real project. The only difference is that in the test project, the code was on an aspx code behind, whereas in the real project, it is an ascx code behind (Web User Control )

The code is:

Dim connectionString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("ASPNETDBConnectionString").ConnectionString
        Dim recordEntry As New UserRecord(connectionString)
        recordEntry.UserName = "TestName"
        recordEntry.BMI = bMI
        recordEntry.BMR = bMR
        recordEntry.FTM = fTM
        recordEntry.TDEE = tDEE
        recordEntry.TodayDate = dateForToday

Dim connectionString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("ASPNETDBConnectionString").ConnectionString

Creating Event Handler in Code behind


Hi, so I have a control that is created in the code behind and generates fine but I can't figure out how to create an event handler for it.  I've found plenty of examples for it in C sharp, but none of them seem to apply to VB.  What I want to do is essentially this:

myDropDownList.SelectedIndexChanged = "Event to do here"

but it doesn't seem to work for me.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Pre_Init event handler problem


Hi all my friends

   I have to masterpages for my home page.

1. The first is for the annonymous users which has the login controls. its name is General_Anonymous.master.

2. The second one is for the logged in users which has a logout button and it hasn't the login controls in it. its name is General_LoggedIn.master.

in my default.aspx page I wrote the following code

protected void Page_PreInit(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (Session["SupId"] == null && Session["CustomerId"] == null)
                this.MasterPageFile = "~/Masters/General_Anonymous.master";
                this.MasterPageFile = "~/Masters/General_LoggedIn.master";

CSS Problem on ASPX page


I am having a problem with space around a div. The page looks perfect in the VS internal browser, but there is space at the top between the body and the div for the page layout in IE and FireFox. I tried everything I know by setting margins to 0 and padding to 0 for the body, div, form, almost everything and there is still space. The wierd thing is that the space shows the background color when I set the padding for the div#page to 0, and the space is the div#page background color when the padding is set to a value.

I must be missing something. I looked at the page's HTML after it is rendered from the server and it inserts a dive with a hidden control for the viewstate. I thought this might be causing the problem so I set the margin and padding for all divs to 0, but it did nothing.

The code for the simple page and CSS is provided below.

It appears the problem disappears and the page looks as I intended when I use the Compatibility View in IE8.

Thanks for the help in advance,

Sharing a file handler between managed and unmanaged code?

This is related to Interops, and sharing a file handler between a WPF UI and a native C++ DLL. I'm working on an application using MVVM as a guide. I want to use WPF for the UI, however it is a complex scientific application, which requires performance, and I am using C++ along with some GPU based code for all the modeling/processing. This is a Windows based app, no real network comm involved. I come across a challenge in terms of storing data. The data is multi-dimensional, and can be projected in many ways, while each projection can be processed/filtered in many ways too. I end up with a tree of data, with the raw data at the root and many branches. XML seems like an ideal way to store the information about this dataset, but as far as the raw data, it is not so convenient. I read about base64 encoding and the various binary-XML techniques, but see a major issue: the size of the converted data (150% of the raw) which in my case is huge (raw data is easily 200MBs+, and the multitude of projections can make it several 100's of MBs easily). There is the option of saving several files, but then it may become a nightmare for a user to 'transfer' files properly, so a one-file system seems best. I basically need to have the XML-like structure accessible to the UI, while the raw data needs to be accessed by the unmanaged code. So I was thinking I could concat
