Automatically redirect to HTTPS and check if SSL is active

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


I've set in the web.config:

    <!-- User Authentication -->
    <authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="~/Page/View/Content/Login.aspx" timeout="2880" requireSSL="true" />

This works fine. If there is no ssl connection, the login form doesn't continue. But I would like to check if ssl is active (in codebehind) and, if it's possible, to automatically the user to the https page if he's currently on http. (I could do this job by manually redirect with page.response("https://url.../login.aspx"); but this is not really generic. For example if the webapp is moved to another domain it doesn't work anymore... I'm looking for something like: FormsAuthentication.RedirectWithSSL(); or so... :D)

SharePoint Couldn't redirect to another page after document check in


Hi all,

I want to redirect to other page after check in the document in the document library. So I coded in ItemCheckedIn event.

But the problem was raised:

  • When I click the Check In button, system would pop up the message "The file could not be checked in. It may already been checked in by another user." (But it would check in the document later).
  • It couldn't redirect to other page after checking in.

Can anyone help?Thx.


Check out a PDF doc automatically


Have a client running SP 2010.  They set up a WF that sends instructions and a link to a user.  The link is to a PDF file and they want it to open the doc with Adobe in edit mode.  Right now it opens with IE and is read only. 

There are other issues in the process so they are not opposed to rethinking the process.

Automatically validate names in SharePoint list to Active Directory names


I have some employee names in a list. Since there is employee turnover, I want to be able to keep a track of which employees have left so that I can take appropriate action. Currently it is a manual process to look at each member of the list and compare it against the GAL. Is there a OOTB feature / script / workflow I can use that does a check of the employee name against the name in Active Directory to ensure if the user still exists and if the user does not exist then it send an email to me automatically.

Using a CompareValidator to check input is a valid date

The CompareValidator can do more than just compare two controls. You can also compare it against several of the main .net data types such as Date, Integer, Double and Currency.

To do this you would set Operator="DataTypeCheck" and instead of setting the ControlToCompare or ValueToCompare attributes as you normally would you use the Type="Date" (or any of the data types I have listed above).

Check All with JQuery and a Asp.Net GridView

Display a Grid on the screen with a checkbox in each row. At the bottom of the page have "Check All" button.

Typically if I need to do anything interesting I use a template column. So my GridView will look like the one below (most other columns removed for readability). The only interesting point to note is the CssClass="ApprovalCheckBox" in the CheckBox ItemTemplate.

Response.Redirect slow


I'm in the middle of migrating servers and on the new server Response.Redirect is extremely slow. It takes around 20 seconds for the browser to get the redirect. This is something that was quick on the existing server. It's an ASP.NET 2.0 application, both servers are running IIS6.

Additionally, if I "manually" do the redirect, it's fast. For example:

Existing way:


takes around 20 seconds on the new server

New way:

Response.Status = "302 Moved Temporarily";
Response.AddHeader("Location", url);

is fast on the new server.

Any ideas why Response.Redirect would be so slow on the new server?

I thought this would be simple... Trying to create a login does an ajax check before submit


I have the standard .net login control that is working.  (Still learning .net after 15yrs of classic)

What I want to do is OnButtonClick run a javascript function (to do an ajax call to the db to check if login is valid or not) and if it returns true, then submit the form normally, else don't submit. The piece that I can't figure out, is how to correctly override the default click even to hit my JS routine and then submit the form properly afterwards.

Thanks ahead of time

How to check for null/empty strings on dynamic objects?


What is the proper way to check for null or empty strings on dynamic objects? This is the only solution I've found so far:

if (admin.PasswordHash.GetType() == typeof(DBNull) || admin.PasswordHash == string.Empty)

If the field is null, the object returned is DBNull.Value, but if the field is empty string, it's return as a System.String object. This makes it impossible to do regular "admin.PasswordHash == DBNull.Value" check, as that will fail whenever the field has been set to empty string. Is my example the right (and only) way to go?

Profile not being save after redirect.



I am trying to save values into a Profile on Page1, then redirect to Page2 and access those values.  However, after the page redirects the profile values are blank as if they were never saved.   When stepping through the code I can see that they are being save on Page 1.

I suppose I could use session variables to store the information but I don't understand why saving the profile doesn't work.

private void PayWithPayPal()
        ProfileCommon profile = this.Profile;

        if (Global.CurrentUserName.Length > 0)
            profile = this.Profile.GetProfile(Global.CurrentUserName);
        profile.FirstName = uxFirstNameShipping.Text;
        profile.LastName = uxLastNameBilling.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.AddressLineOne = uxAddressLineOneShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.AddressLineTwo = uxAddressLineTwoShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.City = uxCityShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.State = uxStateShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.ZipCode = uxPostalCodeShipping.Text;

        Response.Redirect("~/expresspayment.aspx", false);

How to set SearchRoot Path in Active Directory in this scenario


How to set SearchRoot Path in Active Directory in this scenario:

Functionality: We have scenario that 1<sup>st</sup> hit one LDAP server with some 'fixed user name' &' fixed password ' and filter data with specific User name(which given by user) getting 'User dn'.

After that we hit Next LDAP server based on the 'User dn' getting from 1<sup>st</sup> server.

(So, in my case 1<sup>st</sup> LDAP server works like as Load balancing server but functionalitywise it is different)
