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

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

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.

Page.FindControl Causing Null Reference Exception


Hi guys,

Filter web parts in new form page of a list



I've created 2 custom lists. The 2nd list has a lookup column from the 1st list. In the new form page for this 2nd list, I've added the 1st list as a web part. Now, I want to connect the 2 web parts, but it's not available. Basically, what I wanted is that when I select an item on the lookup column, the webpart containing 1st list would show that item on the same page.

I think I'll need to use Sharepoint Designer to implement something like this, but just wanted to check if anyone has done something like this using browser only.



allow client to modify text on web page

Why does text and page formating changes randomly?

Hallo there, First of all I don't know if I am posting in the right forum, so let me know if there is another forum for this issue. My form text and entire page formating changes once a while and I don't know why. e.g. font color, background color of certain paragraphs or table look changes, it seems randomly, I think it has something to do with the style but I don't know how to avoid this repeated text formating loses. In details: U am using Visual Studio 2010 Professional and is set for Visual Web Development. I create a new form e.g. default.aspx link it to a master page and the master page is linked to a css file (style sheet file) that contains only general and basic formatings and I hardly change any thing in this css file. I format my default.aspx. and later the formating chanegs by it self and I have to change it back manualy. Most of the time I have to create a new form. link it to the master page and copy the text, tables and so on from the original page to the new page and then delete the original page. but even the new page chnages later. and so on. I don't know how to avoid that! Any idea's? Thanks in advance  Michael Najar wishes you great day

Consistently running out of page file memory with full text indexer

Using MS SQL Server 2008 SP1 x64 Standard Edtion on Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise, I'm about to full-text index for the first time 1 table and 2 views. The table contains about 250'000 entries with a data space of 180 MB. As soon as I activate the full text indexing, the fdhost.exe task starts to consume slowly but surely all the available page file space (this can be easily watched using the Resource Monitor and the Commit Charge graph on the memory tab). Once all the virtual memory has been consumed, the server becomes unusable since it can't open any new windows any more, and RDP stops working. The machine specs are as follows: 12 GB of RAM 80 GB free on hard disk out of 136 GB 8 CPUs Custom size paging file with sizes between 24 GB - 60 GB (originally, this was system managed size, but then the server ran out of memory sooner) Max SQL server memory set to 6 GB (first 10 GB, then 8 GB) I've set the max fulltext crawl range to 8. During the indexing, the 8 CPUs are bit busy for a while, but not excessively. What is astonishing is that there is almost no use of physical memory during the indexing (I can see an increase from 2 GB to 3 GB which still leaves plenty of RAM available). Does anybody have an idea how I can convince fdhost.exe to consume physical memory and leave the paging memory alone? Or what else can I try?

Read a text file on another server from a web page

How do I read/write a text file on another server from a web page. I get the error "Access to the path '//Server2/mydatafiles/test.txt' is denied". I do not get the error if I am running the browser on the server where the files exist. I think I need to set permissions on the destination server in some way.   Can you help? Thanks  

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

Hi,I would like to take a value from a text box and pass it as a search parameter to my database. I get the value from my code behind page as follows: protected void btn_click(Object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e)      {           AccessDataSource1.SelectParameters["inputValue"].DefaultValue = TextBox1.Text;           string test = AccessDataSource1.SelectParameters["inputValue"].DefaultValue;                      //string inputValue = TextBox1.Text;          //Response.Write(inputValue);         // AccessDataSource1.SelectParameters.Add("@name", inputValue);          //Response.Write(@inputValue);                              } protected void btn_click(Object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e)     {          AccessDataSource1.SelectParameters["inputValue"].DefaultValue = TextBox1.Text;          //An alternate option I have used is          //string inputValue = TextBox1.Text;         // AccessDataSource1.Selec

Filtering web parts without reloading the whole page

I don't know if this is possible or not, but I am going to ask anyway. I have several performancepoint reports on one page, all connected to different filters. I was wondering if there is a way to make only the report you are changing the filter on reload.  For example, I have a census of people that uses a time intelligence filter to show different periods of time.  If someone selected, "Last Six Months," on the filter, I would like just that census report to reload, as opposed to the whole page, which has to reload about 5 other reports. Is there a way to do this?

Render XML text *inside* of an ASP.net page?


I have a block of XML text I need to show the user (so they can copy/paste the XML from the screen)

I use StringWriter() to make the XML a String but when I use Response.Write(xmlString) I get the following error

Microsoft JScript runtime error: Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerParserErrorException: The message received from the server could not be parsed. Common causes for this error are when the response is modified by calls to Response.Write(), response filters, HttpModules, or server trace is enabled.
Details: Error parsing near '<?xml version="1.0" '.

I guess IE does not like rendering XML in the middle of a page?

is there anyway to show the XML data in the middle of my ASPX page?

Many thanks! :)

Can not reference text value in footer of Gridview control


I have been struggling with this all week end .... Yell

I am trying to implement adding a new record using the Gridview footer.

I have an example that works finethat I got from http://www.aspdotnetcodes.com/GridView_Insert_Edit_Update_Delete.aspx.

My situation is a little different .. as I am using master page and the Gridview is in a page derived from the master page.

I have tried:

Dim txtNewName As TextBox = DirectCast(GridView1.FooterRow.FindControl("NewName"), TextBox)

"NewName" is the ID of the textbox in the footer of the Gridview.

When I try referencing ... txtNewName.Text ... it returns a null value.

There must be some trick to referencing this .Text value when using the Gridview that is within a Content Place Holder that results when using a page that was created using a master page.


Thanks in advance fo any possible help with this problem ...

The connection type is not compatible with any other web parts on the page


Is there anyway to determine which interface a webpart uses for connection?

I have a custom web part, implementing the ICellConsumer interface, and I am trying to send values to the SPVisibilityFilter webpart, available here http://spvisibilitywebpart.codeplex.com, which seems to be implementing the ICellConsumer interface as well.

Yet, I still keep getting "the connection type '' is not compatible with any other web parts on the page", when trying to connect the web parts on the page. What am I missing?
