I have a data driven site that displays a lot of information, particularly images, using listviews contained within UpdatePanels, since this data can change with each post back you often see 'submit query' before the Item image appears. So, is there a way of making the page display only after it has finished loading data? The delay as the page loads is only brief but looks quite ugly when 'Submit query' appears all over the site.
I've got a really good idea for a service I'd like to create for the web, but since I'm new to ASP.NET I'd like to get everything up and running before I go and buy hosting etc.
What I'm curious about is the database side of things.
I don't quite understand how I can create a datebase on my computer for the sake of testing and practicing (Presumably through mssql server) and then just transfer it to a hosting account when I'm ready.
I guess the main part I don't understand is how can I connect to a database on my computer via my application and then change the connection so that it points to the web version when I'm ready.
I know that when you create the database and include it in your project it's not technically inside your project (Right?), but it just seems that the application is very rigid once you've specified the connection.
Im trying to incorporate the ajax controll toolkit slider control within an ascx control so that i can then use that within a repeater on an aspx page. Basically i want to have a number of slider controls rendered to a page with default values based on data from a database. i need to put the slider within a data bound repeater as i wont know until runtime how many sliders i will need (maybe there is a better way?). does anyone know of ay examples of how to do this?
The user will then need to be able to move the slider to the value they are after and on the mouse up event ie when they release the slder I will want to be able to update my database with the value they set it to. This bit i think i am ok with but i cant seem to work out how to build a page where by i can render lots of slider controls wth default valuesset from a database.
Every now and then (always after a long period of idle-time, e.g. overnight) when I access a site built using asp.net - it takes around 15 seconds to load the page (15 seconds before I see any progress whatsoever, then the page comes up fast).Further pages on that site, or refreshes, are quick as usual - they are also fast on other machines, only the first one seems to take the 'hit'.
Page tracing never through anything up (whole cycle was a fraction of a second) So my question is where else should I be looking? Perhaps IIS? Or could it still be my asp.net app and I'm just looking in the wrong place (the trace) for clues?As I don't have much control over the IIS server, anything I can check through asp.net would be more helpful, before I go ask that particular admin.
I have a update panel on the ASPX page,When thepage loads the content in the update panel shouldnot load ( Update panel should show the Updatepanel progress control) but after page load update panel contents should load . How do i get this efect.
I'm developing my first Facebook application in ASP.NET 2.0 and doing a simplest thing, that is, to show a navigation on top with four hyperlinks where each link targets to another .aspx page. How can I do this using FBML in ASP.NET 2.0?
Otherwise coming to my question, where I'm struck after trying above thing at myself and failed then had to go around the Ajax way of doing this. Now I'm using Ajax call over the onclick event of each hyperlink from top navigation and it's succesfully loading external .aspx pages (for example,[URL]. The problem is when user comes on the application on first time, it only shows the .aspx page which has a navigation and a Ajax content place holder which is programmed to be filled with contents on click event.
How to load Ajax contents into the Ajax content place holder on page load without a click event?
So, I am in the situation whereby every Action Method requires a check to see if the request was through AJAX or not, which is straightforward. If the request was through AJAX then I can return a partialview, if not then a full view can be returned.
With this pattern though, I'll need to create a View and a PartialView for every page on the site. The only real difference between them is going to the inclusion of the masterpage.
Am I missing a trick here is is this doubling up of views the only way to go?
I had a page that could get accessed through /site/test. Somewhere in my JS I would add a hash to the url like so #/site/test. JS would then watch for any hash changes and load the partial views as needed. If JS was not available though, an entire view would need to be returned.
So for each page I would need the view, which would then include a call to RenderPartial which would load up the partial view which would actually contain the page content. So, for every page there are two files. It just seems there should be a cleaner way of doing this.
I haven't been able to find a post about this, but the HTMLEditor is finally a rich text editor that properly removes word formatting without messaging up other stuff (thank god!). However, because I know my users, I would like for this 'paste as word' mode to be always on whenever they paste, how can I accomplish this?

First, I am new to VWD 2010 and attempting to create a data driven website.
I am attempting to return a value from an sql server stored procedure and store that value in a variable. I have searched here and online and tried to follow the examples that I found. However, I have not been successful in making it work.
Here is my stored procedure:
Here is my VB code behind where I am attempting to get the return value:
I know that I have a good connection because I am using the same connection string from my WebConfig file and it is working in other instances.
Below is the error message that is being displayed.

I'm used to developing private applications for very small amount of concurrent users (usually no more than 10) on very good servers, so I have never been pressed about stress testing my applications. That being said, this is something I want to have a better grasp on my applications.
FYI, all of my websites are based on ASP.NET 3.5 (WebForms), NHibernate (specially interested in testing it with numerous concurrent sessions) as the ORM of choice and require Active Directory authentication.

I've got an odd issue with my pages. My pages include a login modal pop-up and registration modal pop-up. When the page loads, the panels briefly flicker (appear) and then are hidden. It looks very unprofessional so i was wondering if anyone had a clue to how i can avoid this.Here's a URL to see whats happening:[URL]
