Invoking WebMethods With XmlHttpRequest And Pure JavaScript?

Jun 22, 2010

I have what should be a relatively simple task that's frankly got me stumped. I've researched it until my brain is fried, and now I'm puntingHere's the scenario:I have an ASPX page (Q2.aspx) that is decorated with the WebService,WebServiceBinding, and ScriptService attributes. That page contains a method, GetAllContacts, that is decorated with the WebMethodattribute and returns a string containing JSON data. (For what it's worth, the pageitself contains no other controls or functionality.)I have an HTML page that contains JavaScript which uses the XmlHttpRequestobject to invoke the GetAllContacts WebMethod on the ASPX page and transformthe JSON data into an HTML table. I have verified that my Web.Config file contains the appropriate protocol handlersfor HttpGet and HttpPut in the WebServices section under System.Web.webServices.
I have verified that my Web.Config file contains the ScriptModule entry under theSystem.webServer.modules section, and that it matches the appropriate documentation.

However, when I view the HTML page in a browser, the following occur:The web request goes through, but the results are for the unprocessed HTML from the ASPX page.The GetAllContacts method is never invoked, as evidenced by setting a breakpoint in its code.The code to invoke the Web service, however, is invoked, and the JavaScript callbackfunction that is invoked upon request completion is properly invoked.

It appears that the JavaScript code is largely set up correctly, but for some reason that is completely escaping me at this point, the HTML page will simply not execute the WebMethod on the ASPX page, and simply returns the page as though it were a plain HTML GET request. Clearly, an HTML document can't be evaluated by JavaScript's eval function, which brings me to my problem. (Also note that the JSON data appears nowhere in the HTML that's returned.)I am, frankly, baffled. I've looked at dozens of Microsoft articles, StackOverflow posts, CodeProject articles, and who knows what else. My code looks like it's okay. But I know better. I'm missing something simple, stupid, and obvious. I just need someone to point it out to me.Below you'll find the ASPX page code and the HTML code, in the hope that they'll shed some light.ASPX Code

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Q2.aspx.cs" Inherits="Satuit.Q2" enablesessionstate="False" %>

Javascript - XmlHttpRequest Sent Though ClientValidation Failed?

Jan 12, 2011

I have many AJAX forms on the page and on button click I need to submit them all. Regular **forms.each(function (index, form) { $(form).submit();} won't work for me because in this way ONLY the last form will be submitted eventually. Therefore, I need submit them via $.ajax(...). But I want to enable submit ONLY and ONLY if form is VALID On "submitForms" click the fucntion "submitTest" is invoked.
From jQuery documantation "submitHandler" would be called if form is VALID. So, the validation works and "submitHandler" is NOT invoked if form is INVALID. BUT, the XmlHttpRequest is sent anyway, though "submitHandler" isn't invoked.

<% using (Ajax.BeginForm("FormPost", "Customer", null, new AjaxOptions() { HttpMethod = "POST" }, new { @class = "form-container" }))
{ %>
<%: Html.TextAreaFor(m => m.Name, new { width = 440, height = 100 })%>
<input type="button" value="submitForms" />
<% }%>
<script type="text/javascript">
function submitTest(){
var forms = $(".form-container");
forms.each(function (index, form) {
submitHandler: function (form) {

In your opinion, what's the best way to create the server side to a pure Javascript application with ASP.NET? WCF rendering JSON? IHttpHandler? Update Like GMail, that runs in the browser (with a lot of Javascript) and submit and receive data with Ajax, for example.

WCF Vs ASPX Webmethods Vs ASMX Webmethods?

Dec 3, 2010

The intent is to create a set of web services that people can reuse. These services mostly interact with a backend DB creating, retreiving and processing data. We want to expose services so that people can use to create data mashups and other applications.End users are webpages that can be within our domain or outside our domain. For pages outside the domain we plan to release widgets that would be configured to retreive and display the data.

One requirement - application should be extremely scalable in terms of the number of users it can handle.Our code base is .net and we are looking at ASPX webmethods (or ASHX), ASMX webmethods and WCF (starting to read up on WCF). In terms of security/access I found that maintaining sessionid, memberships is doable in all three. WCF seems a bit complicated to setup. I could not immediately see the value of asmx when we can get all done just using a webmethod in aspx (with a little tweaking). Also, assuming that with the ASP.NET MVC2 I might be able to get clean urls as well for these webmethods.QuestionsWhich one will be the most effective in terms of performance and scalability? Any reason why I should choose WCF or ASMX?

EDIT I kind of understand that WCF is the way to go. Just to understand the evolution of the technologies it would be good if someone can throw light on why a aspx webmethod is different from an asmx when similar things (apart from discovery) can be accomplished by both. The aspx webmethods can be made to return data in other formats (plaintext, json). Also, it seems that we can build restful services using ashx.

MVC :: Invoking Action From JavaScript With App In Virtual Directory?

I have an MVC 1.0 app that makes several AJAX calls from JS files. Originally I was just specifying the relative URL like so:


This works but it feels rather like a hack. Is there any way to do what Url.Action does but in the JS code itself? I've had a bit of a search but I'm having trouble coming up with the correct keywords, or else the info just isn't out there.

Alternate Row Color In A GridView Using Pure CSS?

Mar 9, 2010

I want to alternate rowcolor in a GridView, using pure CSS, ie: I don't want to use themes; I'd rather not have to use jQuery, or define define AlternatingRowStyle-BackColor on each gridview (unless there's a reason I must). Here's my CSS (that isn't working):

.gridView {font-size:11px
.gridView tr:nth-child(even) {background-color: #FFF}
.gridView tr:nth-child(odd) {background-color: #FFCC00}
.gridView tr:nth-child(even) td {background-color: #FFF}
.gridView tr:nth-child(odd) td {background-color: #FFCC00}

(I included the .gridView {font-size:11px} just to confirm I am using the proper CssClass.) Is this not possible, or am I doing something wrong.

Best Practice When Using WebMethods And Session?

May 15, 2010

I want to reduce postback in one of my application page and use ajax instead. I used the WebMethod to do so.. I have a static WebMethod that needs to access the session variables and modify. and on the client side, i am calling this method using jQuery. I tried accessing the session as follows:

public static void TestWebMethod()


The values are displayed correctly and seems to work.. but i would like to know if this practice is allowed as the method is a static methods and would like to know how it will behave if multiple people access the application.I would also like to know how developers do these kind of tasks in ASP if this is not the right method.

C# - JQuery / ASCX And Webmethods Not Seem To Be Working?

Apr 24, 2010

I have a cascading dropdown (3 of them) Type, Categories and Sub Categories. Type loads first and upon selection of Type, Category load and selection of Category, Sub Category loads. Also i have 2 buttons, "Add Category" and "Add Sub Category" Upon clicking on these buttons, i call a JQuery Modal Form to add them. I use Webmethod in code behind to add them to database

This works perfectly in ASPX page.

Since I need use this in 3-4 pages, i thought of making the above as User control (ASCX). When i try to use this in a webpage, the webmethods in ASCX don't get called.

Generate Membership Password Hash In Pure TSQL

Feb 17, 2011

I'm attempting to create a pure t-sql representation of the default SHA-1 password hashing in the ASP.Net Membership system. Ideally, what I would get would be this:

UserName Password GeneratedPassword
cbehrens 34098kw4D+FKJ== 34098kw4D+FKJ==

Note: that's bogus base-64 text there. I've got base64_encode and decode functions that round-trip correctly. Here's my attempt, which doesn't work: SELECT UserName, Password, dbo.base64_encode(HASHBYTES('SHA1', dbo.base64_decode(PasswordSalt) + 'test')) As TestPassword FROM aspnet_Users U JOIN aspnet_membership M ON U.UserID = M.UserID

I've tried a number of variations on the theme, to no avail. I need to do this in pure T-Sql; involving a console app or something like that will double the work. So if anyone can supply what precisely the syntax should be to duplicate that password from the ASP.Net membership stuff

Get Clean / Pure HTML From ASMX Web Service Call?

Oct 12, 2010

I am trying to use jQuery .load() to get straight html from a asmx web service:


In .NET code, GetHtml() returns as string:

[WebMethod(EnableSession = false)]
[ScriptMethod(UseHttpGet = true, ResponseFormat = ResponseFormat.Xml)]
public string GetHtml()
return "<span>Hi</span>";

That returns:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<string xmlns=""><span>Hi</span></string>

Notice that the string is encoded. With that encoding, $.load doesn't work right. The displayed text actually has the tags shown.

How can I get the WebMethod call to return just this?
