Chrome only renders menu first time

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I've been searching for this several days - I'm hoping someone out there can help.I'm using the css friendly menu adapter on a master page.  It looks fine on IE7 and Firefox. My problem is with Chrome - it only renders properly the first time the page is loaded after launching the VWD dev server - as soon as I click on a menu item or even just reload the page the menu looks like a poor rendition of the asp:menu control. I've even ascertained that something is different because the "view source" for the page is different - the first load it has the menu as expected, with ul and li - and with subsequent loads it is rendered as a table.As per my multiple searches, I've added the Request.Browser.Adapters.Clear() fix to the page load of the master page. This helped render the asp:menu control to begin with (before this the submenu items would display with the word "Expand" that then had to be clicked)I also tried using the ClientTarget="uplevel" fix to the pre-init of a single page (to test it out)  - did not appear to make a difference here either.I'm imagining that if I'm having this problem with Chrome then it's a problem with Safari as well, so I would like to get this issue resolved...Thanks,CB

Menu Renders as
... No Wait,   

For the first time, I created an ASP.NET 4.0 Website using Visual Studio 2010. It created a simple menu along with CSS style. Nothing fancy, but it looks okay.

That is, until I uploaded it to my shared hosting account. Now the menu items appear small and hard to see without the box that was rendered during testing on my desktop. (You can see it live at http://www.besthikingblogs.com.)

After spending considerable time looking at this, I see that the style is defined as dev.menu. Initially, this worked find because the menu rendered using <DIV>. However, looking at the source when viewing the site on the web, I see the menu is rendered using <TABLE>, which does not match div.menu and so the style is not applied.

I don't seem able to find anything on this. Has anyone else run into this problem?


Menu control appears slighlty off in Chrome and Firefox


The right sides of the dynamic menu items are being chopped off. Also, the entire menu is moved slightly to the left in both browsers. I have been searching for a solution but everything I find so far with Google talks about a problem with the menu not starting on the correct node but I am not having that issue.

Round off time to the nearest minute

How would you round this up to the nearest minute? There isn't a built in function to do this so you have to use a little bit of maths to get there. There are 60 seconds in a minute. We already have 38 seconds on the clock. So we need to add on 60 - 38 = 22 more seconds.

ASP.NET Menu with jQuery Superfish

Choosing the right type of menu for a website is not easy at all. The ASP.NET Menu Control is definitely NOT a good starting point due to the horrendous markup it renders, nor is it good for SEO because of the Markup/Content ratio, neither can it be easily styled.

Performance Tests: Precise Run Time Measurements with System.Diagnostics.Stopwatch

Everybody who does performance optimization stumbles sooner or later over the Stopwatch class in the System.Diagnostics namespace. And everybody has noticed that the measurements of the same function on the same computer can differ 25% -30% in run time. This article shows how single threaded test programs must be designed to get an accuracy of 0.1% - 0.2% out of the Stopwatch class. With this accuracy, algorithms can be tested and compared.

Date and Time Functions in SQLSERVER

Data Types - Date and Time in SqlServer

Date and time values can be stored with either the DATETIME or SMALLDATETIME data type. The difference between the two is that SMALLDATETIME supports a smaller range of dates and does not give the same level of precision when accounting for time. The DATETIME data type can hold values from January 1st of 1753 to December 31st of 9999. The time is stored to the 1 three hundredths of a second and each value takes up 8 bytes of storage. The SMALLDATETIME data type can hold values between January 1st 1900 and June 6th of 2079. The time is tracked to the minute and each value takes up 4 bytes of storage. The majority of business applications can live happily with SMALLDATETIME, however, if you are in an environment where each second matters or you need to make estimates to the distant future (or past) then you have to resort to DATETIME. If you fail to specify the time when inserting a value into a DATETIME or SMALLDATETIME column, a default of midnight is used. If you fail to specify the date portion the default of January 1, 1900 is used.

How to programmatically add controls to Windows forms at run time by using Visual C#

.NET 4 Web Application Startup Time

I was chatting with Jonathan Hawkins and some of the folks on the ASP.NET team about performance and Jonathan mentioned the startup time for large ASP.NET applications is improved on .NET 4. There are some improvements in the CLR and in ASP.NET itself that helped. If you have a giant app, you should do some tests.

Date/Time Conversions Using SQL Server

There are many instances when dates and times don't show up at your doorstep in the format you'd like it to be, nor does the output of a query fit the needs of the people viewing it. One option is to format the data in the application itself. Another option is to use the built-in functions SQL Server provides to format the date string for you.

Problem making Role based Menu in MVC application



 I want to make Rolebase menu in MVC such that if user doesnot have permission for some action then that Action name shouldnot be shown in the Menu.

 I have used the code in the url(http://forums.asp.net/t/1566328.aspx) in my MVC application.My application is a Discussion Forum(in MVC) same functionality as in this forum forums.asp.net

 I have used Controllers for post, thread etc.In each controller there are some actions that are using [Authorize(Roles)] attribute

 but this coding does not count  those Actions in Controllers having Authorize attribute according to the url http://forums.asp.net/t/1566328.aspx 

 In the code, Authorize attribute is applied to Controller class, but my requirement is of Applying Authorize attribute to some actions in controller so that some are available for all users and  some links are available rolewise.Now what is the solution for that?
