Memory Lane: Rediscover the Lost Art of Memory Optimization in Your Managed Code


Managed applications rely on the garbage collector in the .NET Framework to allocate and clean up memory. The little CPU time spent performing garbage collection (GC) is usually a fair trade-off for not having to worry about memory management. But for applications in which CPU time and memory are precious resources, minimizing the time spent garbage collecting can greatly improve application performance and robustness. Find out how to manage memory all over again.

Data lost on submit


Dear Experts,

I have a modal popup and a GridView in it. The GridView is populated programmatically, i.e. I use .DataBind(). I can enter data into some of the GridView's controls. After I press Submit, I expect to do something with the entered data. But in the button press handler, the GridView is empty. I realize that I have to DataBind() again in the handler, but how can I preserve the data the user enters?

and at the global.asax.vb

Sub Session_Start(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        Session.Timeout = 30

end Sub

WSS 3.0 Content Type - Lost data for Titles


We are running WSS 3.0 SP2 on server 2003.  Recently, we lost the "Titles" for all content types for documents.  Our system Content Type for Document is set up to require this field to be completed on all documents that is uploaded.  Our system would automatically enter in by default the name of the document in the "Title" field it no longer does this for the user.  The user must now enter in manually the "Title".  How do I get it to enter in the "Title" using the document file name automatically?

Below is the way the setting page for Site Content Type: Document looks like.  (I tried to recreate it since I could place a screen shot in the box)

Site Content Type Information
Name:  Document
Descriptiong:  Create a new document.
Parent:  Item

Contact Selector - Form tab index is lost after selector resolves names on blur


I'm working with an InfoPath2007 form developed to be filled-out through the browser on a SharePoint 2007 site, and I'm testing using Internet Explorer 7.  It's a straight-forward form, with a number of text fields and two Contact Selector controls.

The issue I'm encountering is with the Contact Selector control, where if the actor only enters a partial name into the text-field and then TABs away from the control the form will perform its auto-postback to look-up and resolve the partial name (showing the name resolution dialog is necessary), and afterward the actor's cursor is focused on the next field in the form.  The actor can type text into the focused field, but any subsequent pressing of the TAB key returns the actor's focus to the browser's ADDRESS bar, which is incorrect as it should proceed to the next field in the form.  I understand that the Contact Selector needs to perform its postback to perform the name resolution (so that there is no way through the InfoPath form designer to disable postbacks for the control), but why does the browser not know how to continue the TAB order of the fields on the form even when a field has focus?

Adding table to a page, but the format lost when I use clear border



I added a table to a page, by default, the table layout is the light border. So, I add my content and the vertical align seems to set to the top. But when I changed it to clear border, the content of the table will set vertical align to center. Is there a way to change this back to top align but with the clear border. I don't think I can do this by what is available in the ribbon. Please advice.

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


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


Sharepoint farm lost a server... How to proceed?


Had a Sharepoint farm I inherited that was running on ____ hardware in a ____ setup- raid controller failed, and the rack was setup so that I have to down 15 servers that might not come back up, just to get at the server... Complete, unrecoverable failure. This server was a member of our Sharepoint 2007 farm, and had Reporting Services on it. There are a lot of little pieces that are still referenced in the Central Configuration. I removed the server forcibly, and need to know next steps, specifically:

1. I tried to move Reporting Services to another server, but I get an error in the Grant Database privileges that I cannot connect to the Report Server's WMI Provider. I created a SPN on a DC, forced a replication a few hours ago, and still no luck. Any Advice?

2. How do I fix all the little things that reference that server? Anytime Sharepoint initiates a web page to Central Administration, it tries to use that server address.

I think the failed server was running SQL 2008 or SQL 2008 R2, and the server I am moving this to is SQL 2005 SP2. I have installed the correct Reporting Services for Sharepoint. Have I missed something?

Time is of the essence because management relies on Reporting Services and I am under a great deal of pressure to fix this. I appreciate any help I can get.



Connection to NAS lost after restart

We are running MS SQL 2005 on Windows Server 2003. We are storing one of our MS SQL databases on a NAS device. It is working quite well except for one minor problem. Whenever the MS SQL machine restarts, MS SQL is not able to access the NAS device. To fix, all I have to do is restart MS SQL (not the machine, just the database server) and then it works fine again until the next time the machine restarts. It is as though, when the machine is starting, MS SQL starts before the machine is ready to do TCP/IP file sharing. I suppose the solution is to delay the starting of MS SQL until the machine is ready to network. I would appreciate suggestions for introducing such a delay.

WCF Settings being lost by IIS

Hi,   I have two boxes running the exact same code (Win Server 2008, SQL Server 2008).  The first box has run perfectly for a number of months now.  However the second box has twice now seemingly lost its WCF settings.  Both times the web applicationhas been running perfectly using WCF but then suddenly I get a message in the event viewer   Exception information:      Exception type: UriFormatException      Exception message: The protocol binding '*:8080:' is not valid for 'http'.  This might be because the port number is out of range.  Doing an IISReset on the offending box corrects the issue and everything is fine again. Can anyone come up with a reason for why this is happening? Cheers, M.

Wizard Control textbox data is lost

I'm using a wizard contol with several textbox fields. I have two textbox fields disabled (textbox19 and textbox20)because I don't want the user to change the values that are calculated from the other textboxes (see javascript below). I do this with javascript on the clientside. My problem occurs when the user is in STEP2 and goes back to STEP1 the values in the disabled fields are gone. Is there a way to fix this? I would also like to perform a validation on textbox20 but I haven't been able to do that with the textbox disabled. How can I do validations on a field that is disabled? I've tried enabling the fields and using readonly = true but that doesn't work either. Any suggestions? // Client Side script to do calculations <script type="text/javascript">       function calculateSubTotal() {      var txt6 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox6.ClientID %>');     var txt12 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox12.ClientID %>');     var txt18 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox18.ClientID %>');     var txt14 = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox14.ClientID %>');     var txtSubTotal = document.getElementById('<%= TextBox19.Cl

There is no ViewData item of type 'IEnumerable' that has the key 'Carrera'.

When running the HttpGet action, it works fine. But when I run the HttpPost action, I recieve the error in the title. Can anyone help me out?

Textbox in headertemplate gridview lost text in updatepanel

Hi everybody,I never post on this forum because since I write code in asp.net I always solve issues by finding solutions with other members who have the problem before me. But this time I don't know how to do...This is my problem : I have a gridview inside an updatepanel and i modified some headers in order to filter the collection. This worked but when my updatepanel is updating, my textbox for the filter clear the value (the text) and lost focus.Is there any solution ?This is my code : <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanelOrders" runat="server" UpdateMode="Conditional"> <Triggers> <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="btFilterClear" /> </Triggers> <ContentTemplate> <asp:GridView ID="OrdersView" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True" AutoGenerateColumns="False" ShowHeaderWhenEmpty="True" EnablePersistedSelection="True" PagerStyle-CssClass="pager" AlternatingRowStyle-CssClass="alter_row" SelectedRowStyle-CssClass="select_row" DataKeyNames="CustId,SalesOrders,CompCode,CustPO"> <Columns>

Gridview attribute changed by javascript is lost on postback

I have a gridview control that extends the default gridview.  I have added an attribute called "hiddenSelectedValues" to to the gridview during the "PreRender" event and I have a private variable that points to the value of that attribute. I have some javascript code that modifies the value of this attribute based on the user checking or unchecking checkboxes in the grid.  I have confirmed that the javascript is indeed modifying the value of the "hiddenSelectedValues" attribute by using Firebug to see the change as it happens. However, once a postback occurs, the grid looses the updated value of this attribute and I am unable to reference get the updated value on the server side. How do I keep the value of an attribute changed by javascript on postback?

Lost access to Central Administration Page

After trying to troubleshoot why all the e-mail alerts stopped working, I ran the best practices analayzer and ran the commands it suggested the paragraph below. "The same account that you use to run SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration must be configured as the SharePoint Timer Service. If they are not the same, the system may not be able to send Alert Notifications and you will not be able to add a content database to a web application using the Manage Content Databases page. Although there are built in mechanisms to keep these accounts synchronized, it is possible to manually change the SharePoint Timer Service account. If the account that you are using to run SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration is the correct account, you can log on to the Web server where the SharePoint Timer Service running as the wrong account. From a command prompt change to the directory where the SharePoint Timer Service is running, this is typically C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN, and run the command: stsadm -o updatefarmcredentials -identitytype configurableid -userlogin domain\account -password password. Although you could directly update the SharePoint Time Server account by opening Administrative Tools, Component Services, you should use this approach only as a last resort.
