I know the content palcehlder does not have a size ,I have a masterpage and content page, the master page has a table with a header, content area, and footer, header and footer are fixed size, content area is 100%. As the user sizes the browser the content area grows and shrinks and the footer stays at the bottom of the browser window - perfect!
Problem: The contentpalceholder does not grow to fill the available content area. Now, the contentplaceholder gets its size from its contents, which in this case is a div holding a silverlight object.I was thinking I could hook the master or child page's re-size event and somehow pass that info onto the SL object, but as it turns out (and I'm surprised I never knew this) there is no aps.net page re-size event! (really?, wow.)
So is there a way to get a SL object hosted on a master page to size itself based on the size of the browser window?Or more generally, a way to size the contents (like a div or panel) of a contentplaceholder based on the browser? on a standard aspx page (not a master page) I CAN get the SL object to size itself based on the broswer, the problem seems to come from the fact that I'm hosting the SL object in a content placeholder.
I guess I could 'unroll' the master page into several standalone pages and have it work, but the menu is on the master page and I'm used to using them, plus it's already done...<sigh>
My requirement is to get the file size in client side. there is no problem in FF but in IE you can't do that unless u r using an activeX object. So we thought of putting it in browser cache and reading the file size from there and when we post it to the server we will be taking it from the cache and send it to the server.
when i did not have too many controls on the gridview, it was displaying fine. but when i added more controls, it has become very slow and displays a large size for a second or so, and then comes to normal size.
We have an application that displays files in a network directory path and wondered if there is a way to open Windows Explorer (or something similar to show/open files or subfolders) from the browser and have it display the files and folders in that path.
We have this great asp.net web application that generates word documents (wordprocessingML) and saves them to the file system on the server. We are running IIS 6.0. I would like to know the best way to allow the user to click a link or something so they can open the document from the browser. I have been experimenting with the Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word object, but am getting an error when I try to active the application object. I don't know if using this object is the best approach or if I should be doing something else.
any page that I open in my browser comes up blank.
I don't get any errors, it just comes up blank.
I also noticed that it seems to bypass forms authentication. For example, even though the page I open is blank, it is the actual page name that shows up in the browzer instead of the page that it usually redirects to for the forms authentication.
Is there such a thing as an optimum chunk size for processing large files? I have an upload service (WCF) which is used to accept file uploads ranging from several hundred megabytes.
I've experimented with 4KB, 8KB through to 1MB chunk sizes. Bigger chunk sizes is good for performance (faster processing) but it comes at the cost of memory.
So, is there way to work out the optimum chunk size at the moment of uploading files. How would one go about doing such calculations? Would it be a combination of available memory and the client, CPU and network bandwidth which determines the optimum size?
EDIT: Probably should mention that the client app will be in silverlight.
When the user selects the list of files from a page and hit's download selected, then a post back happens to server and starts zipping on the server. This works great until we hit the timeout on the page ( which is default to 90 seconds ) and just returns the process to the page even though the backend process is still zipping. Is it possible to show the size of zip file when the file is being zipped instead of waiting till the end to provide the download link?
I have an asp.net project both in .net 2005 and 2008.It is working fine in my PC and page is opening from browser but not from other PC.I can able to connect the other pc's,ping it sure there is no connection problem with pc.I think should be in IIS or sharing from my PC.I need both in .net 2005 and 2008.
I have an ASP.NET/C# application that exports some data into an Excel spreadsheet using COM interop at the click of a Button control. When I click the button, Excel is opened with the generated spreadsheet. For what it's worth, here is the button code:
<asp:Button ID="export" Text="Export to spreadsheet" runat="server" OnClick="Export_Workbook" />
This works fine, except when I click the button, close the subsequent spreadsheet, and refresh the page. When the page is refreshed after clicking the button, the call to Export_Workbook() is made again and so the spreadsheet opens again. Firefox, for example, says this when you refresh: "To display this page, Firefox must send information that will repeat any action (such as a search or order confirmation) that was performed earlier." This is something I want to avoid.
I'm sure there's a better way to accomplish what I'm trying to do, I'm just not sure what the best approach is.
