Cookies and Helpers

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

The api guide is real briefe about cookies. I would I go about creating/assiging a cookie, setting exporation, and anything else...

Could someone just list out the helper capabilities?

Thanks for your time...!

Html Helpers and Exceptions



I have been working in a few MVC HTML Helpers. For example:

    public static MvcHtmlString GoogleAnalytics(this HtmlHelper helper, String account, String url) {
      // ...

If account or url are null should I trhow an exception? Or render an empty string? Or render an Html comment in the view?

What is the recommended approach for this?

Flash player doesn't send cookies while requesting an aspx page



 I'm developing a web-site, that uses SWFUpload for multiple files upload to the server. Page, that uploades files, is accessable only to registered user. Authentication is done via web-forms (authentication mode="Forms" in Web.config). Flash uploades files to special web page - upload.aspx. In IE everything works great, but Flash player in non-IE browser (in Firefox, for example) does not send any cookies to upload.aspx. Because of it no sesion and no authentication information is available in this page.

 I can pass all the information, necessary for uploading, in GET-parameters, which upload.aspx recieve. But this is a serious security hole and I don't want to expose session information. I can pass session identifier in GET-request. But the question is the following: how can I restore session information from the session identifier? How can I make HttpContext.Current.User point to currently logged in user in this case?

Any help will be appreciated.

Where can I find the code of the Twitter or Facebook or WebGrid helpers?


Just in general, where can I find the code to take a look at and learn from them? Or at least look at the functions available to me as I do get the feeling that the insufficient documentation at the moment reveals all.

System.EntryPointNotFoundException: Entry point was not found. when unit testing html helpers


I'm trying to unit test a very simple html helper but keep getting the following exception:

System.EntryPointNotFoundException: Entry point was not found.

public static string AdditionalUsersDropDownList( this HtmlHelper helper, int additionalUsers )


Dictionary<int, string> items = new Dictionary<int, string>( );

items.Add( 0, "None" );

for ( int i = 1; i <= 30; i++ )


items.Add( i, i.ToString( ) );


SelectList list =  new SelectList( items, "Key", "Value", additionalUsers );

return helper.DropDownList( "AdditionalUsers", list );


3rd party cookies, proxies, and you.

I have an intranet site that is used to pull several other intranet applications/tools and database info to one place.One of the most popular features uses iFrames and jQuery tabs to give a broad overview of activities, signal etc in a network node.  Chrome and Firefox eat it up with no problems, IE will work if you override the cookie policies that restrict 3rd party cookies without a valid p3p (what a worthless standard).  IE also works if you already authenticated yourself on the individual sites and the session cookies are still valid.It's gaining popularity outside the original small intended audience, and I can't expect everyone to override their privacy settings or expect IT to push the sites out to exception lists on all PCs in the company.Before someone chimes in with "just add protected void Application_BeginRequest(object sender, EventArgs e) { HttpContext.Current.Response.AppendHeader("p3p", "CP=\"IDC DSP COR ADM DEVi TAIi PSA PSD IVAi IVDi CONi HIS OUR IND CNT\""); } to your global .asax", I have ZERO control of the child site., so regular 'ol p3p settings ain't gonna cut it.After wasting over two days with it and getting behind on more important matters, I figure my options at this point areSomehow inject p3p into the header of the child site just before iFrame renders.

SQL Reporting Service, Cookies and Forms Authentication

Hi, I currently have a instance of SQL Reporting Services that uses custom Forms authentication. When I access the Report Manager through Internet Explorer the Report Manager redirects to my login page, I login and it heads back to the Report Manager and everything works as expected. The problem I'm having is when I use the web service it fails when I call ListItems( ... ). I first create an instance of the service, I then call LogonUser with a username and password, which executes fine, then I call the ListItems which throws an exception similar to: The content type text/html; charset=utf-8 of the response message does not match the content type of the binding (text/xml; charset=utf-8). If using a custom encoder, be sure that the IsContentTypeSupported method is implemented properly. The first 1024 bytes of the response were: '<html>  <head>   <title>    SQL Server Reporting Services   </title><meta name="Generator" content="Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services 10.50.1600.1" /> <meta name="HTTP Status" content="500" /> <meta name="ProductLocaleID" content="127" /> <meta name="CountryLocaleID" content="1033" /> <meta name="StackTrace" content="   at Microsoft.ReportingServices.
