Detecting Edit or Insert Page

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

I am coding a .cs file that handles the metadata for a particular table. I am putting a custom validation that allows me to update or insert only if the PubMedID is not already in the database. This would be easy except that the PMID should also be allowed to be null as some of the references in the database were not from PubMed. So i perform a query on the database to see if there is already an identical PMID in the database. This works great when using Insert. However, when using Edit, it does not. The PMID is already in the database because the one currently being edited has the same PMID!!! So I know exactly how to change my query etc. However, I do not know how to tell from inside this Edit/Insert agnostic page, which one it is being called from. Thanks for your help!

Creating a custom page for a different action - not insert/details/edit/list?


If want to make a new page with a different action (not insert/edit/details/list) is the website root the right place to put it?  That seems to be the only place where I don't get a "404 - Not Found" error.  I just wondered if there's a best practice for this ... maybe creating a new action in addition to List/Edit/Insert/etc so that my page can go in the same folder with the other pages for the same table.  For example could I add a "Print" action and then put my page in DynamicData/CustomPages/SurveyResponses/Print.aspx?

Thanks in advance!

Detecting PPC device on startup page to redirect?

I was wondering (since a search didn't find any posts) if there is a way for my startup page to detect what kind of device (PocketPC or web browser specifically) is loading the page and if it is a PocketPC, then redirect to the mobile pages? I will only be using PocketPC's exclusively as a mobile device.

Thanks for any suggestions!

you do not have permission to do this operation. Whenever I try to edit a page in sharepoint designe


Hi There,

I keep getting the error message "you do not have permission to do this operation" in  sharepoint designer 2007 (WSS 3.0), whenever I try to edit a page in Sharepoint Designer.

I am a farm admin, site collection admin and site admin, after the error message I can click OK and enter the Administrator password which has the same priviliges as me and it thinks about it for 5 minutes then returns the same error, eventually after several hours it will allow me to save changes but it's about a 1 in 20 chance.

As it does save sometimes it would appear to me that somehow it is losing the connection or temporarily losing the credentials. Does anybody have a clue where I can start to find out a solution to this problem. I get the feeling that something is corrupted somewhere but I don't what to look for and where.

Any help, tips, ideas gratefully received.

Thanks in advance.


Customizing the Insert/Edit Forms

Hi, I need to have 2 tables show in one webform(one-to-one relationship). I have tried customizing the Insert webform from the PageTemplates(creating the entity folder under CustomPages and copying the Insert page from PageTemplates), but it shows a lot of duplicate errors, e.g. The type GRIPS.Insert already contains a definition for DynamicDatamanager1, ScriptManagerProxy, etc... Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks, CC

"Only their own" allows users to edit, then shows access denied page

I am managing a WSS 3.0 portal.  I have created custom lists where a group has contribute permissions.  Under List Settings|Advanced Settings, when I set Edit Access to "Only their own" or "None", my test users can see the Edit Icon and the Edit Item menu option, and bring up the Edit Form.  When they click "OK", they get the Access Denied page.  My experience in that past is that they should not even been shown the option to edit, and they should get Access Denied if they somehow navigate to the EditForm.aspx page.  I even tested this on a brand new site, with three Links lists, each with different Edit Access Levels (All, None, Only their own).  I added one user with contribute permissions.  He had the same result: He could get all the way to EditForm.aspx, but got "Access Denied" when he submitted his changes.  What can I do to fix this?Christopher W.

Detecting a page close using GetCallbackEventReference IIS6/IIS7 Issue

I have a popup page that when closed,  initiates a server side function that updates a DB table.  After looking at countless posts, I was able to use the following code (partial) to generate the callback when the window closes. The problem I'm having is that it works great on a server with IIS7, but the event doesn't fire on one with IIS6. Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load    If Not IsPostBack Then        Dim callBackReference As String = Page.ClientScript.GetCallbackEventReference(Me, "arg", "LogOutUser", "", True)        Dim logOutUserCallBackScript As String = "function LogOutUserCallBack(arg, context) { " & callBackReference & "; }"       Me.ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(Me.GetType(), "LogOutUserCallBack", logOutUserCallBackScript, True)    End If  End Sub      Public Function GetCallbackResult() As String Implements System.Web.UI.ICallbackEventHandler.GetCallbackResult               Return _callBackStatus    End Function     Public Sub RaiseCallbackEvent(ByVal eventA

Insert and Edit Pages with Web User Control Template for another table

Hi, I have an Address template(web user control) which holds the fields of the Address table.  The Address template is embedded in the School Insert Page.  I want to insert a new school together with its address(which means I have to insert a record into the address table).  Can you let me know how I can pass the newly generated addressId to update school table?  Also, how can I associate the Address.cs in the App_Code with the Address template?  I want it to be able to scaffold columns which needs to be hidden from user in the address table.  When I click on Insert School, the Address template shows in "insert" mode, I just need to link the two together. Thanks for your help! CC  

Custom Edit form - close modal dialog and navigate to page

Hi, I created one custom edit form for my document library, replaced default save and cancel buttons with input buttons and added the form action to them. Then I set my page as default edit form. When I click edit button, my custom form opens in modal pop up. When I try to save the item by clicking new save button, item gets saved but pop remains as it is. Now, I want the modal pop up to get closed and navigate to page other than the parent page with some parameters after I click save button. How can I achieve this? Thanks!!

Full Control users only able to edit Shared Version of page in MOSS 2007

Hi, In MOSS 2007 we have a site collection that does not allow the owners to edit pages. There is no broken inheritance in the permissions, and when a user clicks "Site Actions" and then "Edit" they get a toolbar saying they are only editing the Shared Version of the page. No pages are checked out to any other users either and the users attempting this (including the Farm account) are not able to edit these pages. What would be the next steps to debugging this problem as it is not one I have encountered previously?

Custom Insert / Edit Pages

I'm working with a legacy database that is not normalized, nor can i change it to normalize it and/or add relationships. I've successfully got my List and Details pages up and running and am now moving on to insert/edit. Here's my challenge: The insert page needs to accept data that will be written to multiple tables (i.e. consider a customer call where we're creating the customer, the customer address record, etc. on the fly). In addition, the customer can either be a "customer" or a "prospect", each being a separate table. Any suggestions as the best approach to tackling this issue. My gut feel is that I should write a standard aspx page and hook up the data manually. Not sure how to navigate to this page from the insert / edit button (modified routing). Thanks.

Unable to edit a wiki page

Few users who have the full control permissions inherited from the top site are able to create a wiki site (as expected), but when they try to edit the wiki content on the page of the newly created site, they get a permission error (unexpected).  Not all users have this problem.  Another user who belong to  the same people group is able to edit the page without any problem (wierd).  Given below is the error message You are not authorized to view this page You do not have permission to view this directory or page due to the access control list (ACL) that is configured for this resource on the Web server Please try the following: Contact the web administrator if you believe you should be able to  view this directory or page.   Unfortunately, I am that web admin.  No clue what could be wrong.  Please advise. We are using MOSS 2007 single server installation on windows 2003 server SP2 enterprise edition with SQL server 2005 as back-end. Authentication Type: Windows IIS Authentication setting: integrated Windows authentication - NTLM Anonymous access - disabled. Thanks.
