Use MailSettingssmtp With Both The ConfigSource And From Attributes?

Jan 15, 2010

I am trying to clean up our web.config file such that per-deployment specific stuff is not kept in the main config. I have managed with the connections strings and some of the mailSettings, but I need the from attribute as well as the configSource, but this doesn't seem to be allowed.

Currently I have this:


<mailSettings >
<smtp configSource="email.config" from="" />
<proxy bypassonlocal="True" usesystemdefault="False" />
<network host="myhost" password="" userName="" />

Ideally I would have the set the configSource on either mailSettings or, but this isn't supported.

Is there a better way to do this?

JQuery :: JQuery And Custom Attributes/ Find All Input Elements That Will Require Validation?

Jul 14, 2010

to directly get all elements in a form who contains a non html attribute ?

<input .... customAttribute="validateMe">

So I could find all input elements that will require validation.And use this in a loop to add validation to the input's found :

$('input').attr("customAttribute").val() == "validateMe"

I could also write every validation for each object separately, I have only a few elements who uses a required validation but it would be nice that I could do this in one shot instead of repeating the $("input").rules("add .....

Give Style Attributes To Sub-elements Inside A <style> Tag?

Apr 9, 2010

My <style> for thumbnails currently looks like this:

<style type="text/css">
img.TN {
width: 100%;
margin-bottom: 5.294%;
cursor: pointer; }

This is annoying, because I have to apply this style to every single thumbnail image individually, when there could be any number of them on the screen at any given time. All of the thumbnails are inside a single <div> that groups them together, and I'd like to apply a single style to the <div> that will push the attributes I need down to all of the the <img> elements nested inside, regardless how many thumbnails there are.

I'm using ASP.NET 2.0, and CSS 2.0

Configuration Of Forms Authentication Section ?

Nov 3, 2010

I have an ASP.NET MVC application running on IIS. In my web.config I defined following section responsible for forms authentication:

<authentication mode="Forms">
loginUrl="~/Account/LogOn" [code]....

Why do I get a different address from the one defined in web.config?

UPDATE: The "/VNK/site/" prefix is not a problem here. The problem is that LoginUrl property of FormsAuthentication class does not reflect the value from web.config. It means that if I change in web.config loginUrl from "~/Account/LogOn" for example to "~/foobar", FormsAuthentication.LoginUrl still has value of "/VNK/site/Account/Login". Why ?

Configuration :: Registering A Custom Section In Web.config?

Feb 12, 2010

I'm getting an ConfigurationErrorsException when trying to load a custom section from my web.config.

I'm trying to register a custom section in web.config to load it later using a "Section Class".
Suppose my section is orderService, and I register it in web.config as shown:
<sectionGroup name="system.web.extensions" type="System.Web.Configuration.SystemWebExtensionsSectionGroup, System.Web.Extensions, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35">
<section name="orderService" type="orderService"/>
<orderService available="true" pollTimeout="00:01:00" location="abc">

Then I try to load it with:

Configuration config = WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration(Request.ApplicationPath);
OrderService custSection = OrderService)config.GetSection("orderService"); <== The exception is thrown here (OrderService is a class that inherits from the class ConfigurationSection, and that defines a property for each orderService property, in this case: available, pollTimeout and location)

The exception says: An error occurred creating the configuration section handler for orderService: Could not load type 'orderService'. (my web.config path line 23) Does anybody know what am I doing wrong here? (I got it from the book APress: Pro ASP.NET 3.5 in C#)

Configuration :: Encrypting A Custom Section Programatically

Aug 11, 2010

I have a custom section in a web application that I am having trouble encrypting. I have written an external .NET program that will encrypt both .NET 1.1 & .NET 2.0 web/app configs.Up until this point in time, I have never had to encrypt any custom sections for either type of application. Anyway, the way I set it up for my web application is I wrote a class library that I import into the web application which allows me to set up and read from the custom section in the web.config. That all works fine... I added the custom section, and the web pages are able to read the values fine.

C# - StringValidator Always Fail For Custom Configuration Section?

Aug 27, 2010

I have created a custom configuration section in a c# class library by inheriting from ConfigurationSection. I reference the class library in my web application (also c#, ASP.NET), fill in the appropriate attributes and everything works great. The problem starts when I start adding validators.

For example, this property:

[ConfigurationProperty("appCode", IsRequired = true)]
public string ApplicationCode
return (string)base["appCode"];
base["appCode"] = value;

As is it works fine, but as soon as I add this:


It bombs with the following error:

The value for the property 'appCode' is not valid. The error is: The string must be at least 1 characters long.

I get this error even though a valid appCode value is in my web.config file. If I remove the validator it works perfectly.
