Scripting tags not firing

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
This should be so simple but the answer is escaping me.  We have a simple ASP.NET 3.5 webform written in VB.  The form does not contain any databound controls.  The markup posted below is a simplified version of the page.  We're trying to get the script code in the Text property of the label to fire.  I seem to recall there is something that needs to be put in the Page_Load to force the scripting to run under these circumstances but I can't recall what it is.  Can someone help please?<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="Test2.aspx.vb" Inherits="EUCNET00123.Test2" %> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" > <head runat="server"> <title></title> </head> <body> <form id="form1" runat="server"> <div> <asp:Label ID="Label33" runat="server" Text='<%= IIf(String.IsNullOrEmpty("X"), "Null or Empty", "Not Empty") %>'> </asp:Label> </div> </form> </body> </html&g

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!

Scripting and .NET: Visual Studio for Applications Provides Customized Scripting Facilities for Your


In the past, the Microsoft Active Scripting architecture has allowed you to make your applications extensible. But it came with some drawbacks. You couldn't call into DLLs; you had to use COM interfaces. The scripts were not compiled, so they ran more slowly than they otherwise might, and a number of objects had to ride along with the script. To solve these problems and make extensibility easier to attain, Visual Studio for Applications was introduced. Presented here is an introduction to VSA that covers language support, types, events, and much more.

Scripting SQL: VBScript Interfaces in SQL Server 2000 Let You Transform Data and Provide Reports to


Application service providers often must send information to clients automatically rather than on-demand. For example, a manufacturer may want to know each day how many of their products were sold by a retail chain. While SQL Server is ideal for maintaining this type of database, you have to write scripts to get the data out in a client-friendly format. Here you will see how you can use Data Transformation Services (DTS), a powerful tool in SQL Server, to automate the retrieval and formatting of data from SQL Server 2000 and make the process of pushing data to your users a lot easier.

Scripting: Windows Script Host 5.6 Boasts Windows XP Integration, Security, New Object Model


Windows Script Host (WSH) 5.6, a major upgrade for the WSH environment, provides some significant improvements over previous versions. A brand new security model that is tightly integrated with security in Windows XP allows administrators to place fine-grained restrictions on scripts reducing the risk from malicious code. In addition, local scripts can now run on remote machines, and enhancements to the object model reduce the amount of boilerplate code needed when writing professional code. This overview of WSH 5.6 explains these changes and how .NET and scripting work together.

Active Scripting APIs: Add Powerful Custom Debugging to Your Script-Hosting App


Active Scripting is a powerful tool for adding advanced features such as macro capabilities to custom applications. This creates a need for integrated debugging services for new features added with scripting. To address this need, Microsoft has provided a set of COM interfaces for developing debugging services from within the Active Scripting framework. This article illustrates how to use the debugging services published within the Active Scripting framework to create a full-featured script debugger that can provide a multitude of debugging actions including setting breakpoints, call stack viewing, variable browsing, immediate-window viewing, thread enumeration, and application enumeration.

A Simple XML-driven Tool: Monitor Your Web Site's Activity with COM and Active Scripting


This article describes a simple Web site monitoring tool built with XML, JScript, Windows Script Host, and COM objects. Although it is not intended to replace complete Web site monitoring software products, it has many useful features that help to keep Web servers up and running. An XML configuration file specifies which Web sites to monitor and the actions to be taken if the site isn't functioning properly. In addition, the tool can be scheduled to run at any specified interval using the Windows Task Scheduler. Functions that probe the sites, log events, and send e-mail notifications are written in JScript.
