How To Get The Virtual Path Of A File From A Generic Handler

Mar 22, 2011

How can i resolve a virtual path to a file into a path, suitable for the browser, from within a generic .ashx handler?

e.g. i want to convert:




If i were a WebForm Page, i could call ResolveUrl:


which resolves to:


But i'm not a WebForm Page, i'm a generic handler. You know, that IHttpHandler object with all kinds of things injected:

Converting Virtual Path To Physical Path In A Handler?

Feb 14, 2010

I am trying to convert the virtual path to a physical path but don't seem to have Server.MapPath or HttpServerUtility.MapPath available in my handler. I add the System.Web namespace with no luck.

string virtualTargetFolder = String.Format("~/UserImages/{0}/Images/", user.ProviderUserKey.ToString());
string physicalTargetFolder = System.Web.HttpServerUtility.MapPath (virtualTargetFolder);

Content Type When Serving A File In A Generic Handler?

Dec 10, 2010

I'm busy writing a handler to serve various documents for download or presentation in web forms pages. The documents range from various image formats, to PDF, to MS Office documents, to generic binaries. My basic draft of the download process is as below:


However, I have some misgivings about lumping all documents together as application/octet-stream, and I would prefer, if feasible, to use a more specific content type per document type. I have a DB table for document types where I could store this. Am I going in the right direction, and if so, where can I find a suitable starting list of content types for document types?

C# - PlatformNotSupportedException When Saving A File From Silverlight Through A Generic Handler

Jul 30, 2010

I have a Silverlight application hosted in an ASP.NET site, through which I'm starting an HttpWebRequest to a Generic Handler in order to save a CSV file to the user's machine.

From the Silverlight app, a Uri is constructed with parameters to make the CSV file server-side. A button is clicked which triggers the following:

string httpHandlerName = "HttpDownloadHandler.ashx";
// CustomUri handles making it an absolute Uri wherever we move the handler.
string uploadUrl = new CustomUri(httpHandlerName).ToString();
UriBuilder httpHandlerUrlBuilder = new UriBuilder(uploadUrl);
httpHandlerUrlBuilder.Query = string.Format("{3}startdate={0}&enddate={1}&partnerId={2}", startDate, endDate, partnerId, string.IsNullOrEmpty(httpHandlerUrlBuilder.Query) ? "" : httpHandlerUrlBuilder.Query.Remove(0, 1) + "&");
HttpWebRequest webRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(httpHandlerUrlBuilder.Uri);
webRequest.Method = "POST";
webRequest.BeginGetResponse(new AsyncCallback(GetResponseCallback), webRequest);

Now here is the ProcessRequest code from the HttpDownloadHandler.ashx

public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
_httpContext = context;
string partnerId = _httpContext.Request.QueryString["partnerId"];
string startDate = _httpContext.Request.QueryString["startDate"];
string endDate = _httpContext.Request.QueryString["endDate"];
ExportCsvReport exportCsv = new ExportCsvReport();
_csvReport = exportCsv.ExportMemberRegistrationReport(partnerId, startDate, endDate);
context.Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=Report.csv");
context.Response.ContentType = "text/csv";

Here is the HttpResponse header information that comes back when the Save File Dialogue refuses to appear:

Buffer: true
BufferOutput: true
Cache: {System.Web.HttpCachePolicy}
CacheControl: "private"
Charset: "utf-8"
ContentEncoding: {System.Text.UTF8Encoding}
ContentType: "text/csv"
Cookies: {System.Web.HttpCookieCollection}
Expires: 0
ExpiresAbsolute: {1/1/0001 12:00:00 AM}
Filter: {System.Web.HttpResponseStreamFilterSink}
HeaderEncoding: {System.Text.UTF8Encoding}
Headers: 'context.Response.Headers' threw an exception of type 'System.PlatformNotSupportedException'
IsClientConnected: true
IsRequestBeingRedirected: false
Output: {System.Web.HttpWriter}
OutputStream: {System.Web.HttpResponseStream}
RedirectLocation: null
Status: "200 OK"
StatusCode: 200
StatusDescription: "OK"
SubStatusCode: 'context.Response.SubStatusCode' threw an exception of type 'System.PlatformNotSupportedException'
SuppressContent: false
TrySkipIisCustomErrors: false

When I navigate to localhost/HttpDownloadHandler.ashx while the site is up, without initiating it from within the Silverlight app - the Save File Dialogue appears just fine, it seems to be a case where Silverlight is not accepting the response header properly.

Looking For A Generic Handler / Service For Mongodb?

May 25, 2010

I am new to MongoDB and have a perfect place in mind to use it. However, it's only worth it if I can make the queries from JavaScript and return JSON.

What's the easiest way I can implement a generic service/handler in that would allow me to interact with mongodb via JavaScript? I understand JavaScript can't call mongodb directly, so the next best thing is what I'm looking for.

Configuration :: Web Setup Does Not Install Generic Handler (ashx)

Jul 21, 2010

I've created a Web application (VS2008) that contains a single Generic Handler (handlername.ashx) and a web.config. I've also added a Web Setup project to use for deployment that uses the primary output from the Handler project. Install works without any errors and all the referenced DLLs are installed in the target location, with one issue. It doesn't install the ASHX file or the web.config.

Publishing the web app to the target location works as expected (includes both DLLs and the ASHX/Config files).

Is there something specific I need to do for the Web setup to include the ASHX/Config files?
