Feb 18, 2010

Please help to understand this RegEx statement in details. It's supposed to validate filename from ASP.Net FileUpload control to allow only jpeg and gif files. It was designed by somebody else and I do not completely understand it. It works fine in Internet Explorer 7.0 but not in Firefox 3.6.

C# - Apply Client Side Validation On Fileupload Control To Check Filename Contain Special Character?

A potentially dangerous Request.Files value was detected from the client (filename="...New Text &#.txt").

This value may indicate an attempt to compromise the security of your application, such as a cross-site scripting attack. You can disable request validation by setting validateRequest=false in the Page directive or in the configuration section. However, it is strongly recommended that your application explicitly check all inputs in this case.

Source Error: An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web request.

Web Forms :: Reduce The Length Of .net Generated Control ID's?

Aug 25, 2010

I'm looking for ways to reduce the size of my page . I have a page that just renders a gridview - no images - and it is over 400k!

Looking at the html that is generated I see the names of the controls in the gridview are very very long. For example: ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_releaseGV_ctl149_lblBuy

My gridview is about 200 rows by 13 columns = ~ 2600 spans with very long names rendered. The above example is 49 characters X 2600 controls = 127,400 characters just in control ID's!

The actual data on my page ins't anywhere near a tenth of that!

I am already storing viewstate on the server.

YES, I will put a pager on this page to bring down the number of rows. Also, I've seen sever other posts related to page size with some excellent content. I will follow up on them - however I have not seen this specific question answered.

Here is a sample of my page. As you can see there is not much data and a lot of html!

Web Forms :: Client ID Of A Dynamically Generated Control?

Feb 23, 2010

I've recently added a Master Page to my site,but realized that it's caused some problems in my existing JavaScript setup.I am able to use the following code in most places without any issue to get the ClientID: '<%=myControl.ClientID%>'

The problem I have encountere is that I have several pages that add controls dynamically,and then execute events based on an ID that's passed in,where I can't use this line,because I won't know the ID of the control I'm trying to access until the Javascript executes.Here's a simplified version of the problem:

When the page runs,it creates n textboxes dynamically,and appends a relevant ID from the database to the end of the ID.Let's say the page has added 3 textboxes with the following IDs:




Later,a javascript event fires,and I need to be able to access the control through JavaScript like this:

myJavaScriptFunction (controlID)

myvar = document.getElementById('myTextBox' + controlID);

Web Forms :: Get Data From A Table Control Which Has Been Generated Programmatically

Jan 21, 2011

I am creating a Table Control programmatically and I want after user clicks a button to get the values.

The table has three columns, {Title(DropDownList), FName(TextBox), LName(TextBox)} and two rows.

I am getting the values for FName, LName without problem, but I am getting wrong value for Title, which is a DropDownList. It gives me for both Titles, the selected value of the second column.

More Clear

For the 1st row --> Mr, Foo, Bar
for 2nd row- -> Mrs, Foo, Bar

after user clicks the button I am getting

For 1st row --> Mrs, Foo, Bar
For 2nd row- -> Mrs, Foo1, Bar.

This is the method of table creation

Web Forms :: Set The Current Value Of A FileUpload Control?

May 21, 2010

I have a 2 FileUpload controls.

Once the user selects a file in the first control, I want to set the default value for the 2nd control to be the value from the first control.

For example, if it were textbox controls I would just use TextBox1.text = TextBox2.text.

How do I do this for FileUpload controls? I tried a few different properties, such as FileUpload1.FileName = FileUpload2.FileName but I get an error saying that they are Read Only.

Web Forms :: Hide FileUpload Control?

May 7, 2010

I would like to simply have an image button on my page that would show an image that says something like "Upload File".When the user clicks the button I would like for it to automate popping up the "select file dialog" exactly like the "browse" button does on the FileUpload control now. Then if the user selects a file and click "OK" I want to do a post back where I can then initiate the upload. If the user clicks cancel from the dialog I would do nothing.So all I am trying to do her is make it so that the user does not see the text box for the file name and replace the plain old browse button with an image and do a postback if they click ok from the dialog.
