I have created a web app using the AJAX Enabled Web App template. I now want to add an advertising banner using an adobe flash file, which requires the use of the "Shockwave flash object" in the Components tab of the toolbox. I have added the relevant .dll file under references but still the option for the control in the toolbox is greyed out.
Is it possible to use the component tools with an AJAX web app?
Are the component tool available when using the express version of Visual Web Developer 2010?
If I can not use "Shockwave flash object" another method of creating an ad banner on my app?
We have two separate web applications for a site: One for the site itself, and one for the cms/administration side. I'm not sure why the original developer designed it this way, but whatever.
I am tasked with adding some functionality to the administration side that uploads files. These files then need to exist within the folder structure of the actual site. I was thinking I might have to write a web service that sits on the actual site that accepts the file bytes and file name from a call within the administration site, and creates the file in the correct folder, but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about a cleaner way to accomplish the same thing.
In general, how would you tackle a scenario where you upload a file on one site, and send it to the directory structure in another?
since installing VS2010 I have problems with configuring membership. Using a online sql database what I prepared with the aspnet_regsql tool tables are there connection string is ok! when I open the ASP net config tool, I do not manage to select the membership provider. Underneath my web config file. can sombody tell me what is wrong??
I've learned asp.net from books available on the internet, but I didn't find a good book that teaches you some techniques or logic to follow to build an administration area to control the front-end.I mean they talked about security, membership and roles. but still they didn't show you how to manage anything that's not related to a database, anything that's related to a database you'll probably create a page to display some info from a db with some SELECT commands and another page for the admin to INSERT, DELETE, UPDATEbut how can I connect to the other controls from my admin panel.for example : a textbox in the admin.aspx will edit the value of a certain label in display.aspx
another example : I built a web user control to retrieve articles from a DB and another control to be placed in the admin page, which will let the admin add new articles and it will insert it to the database, how can I add more power to the admin page to control the number articles to display on the page, or to control the sorting of the articles, etc...If i could get a name of a book that helps me with the logic or basics of creating a page that works like my admin panel to control the front-end it would be great,
I am using Visual Studio 2008 Pro SP1. Every time I try to access the security tab in Web Application Administration Tools I get this message:
There is a problem with your selected data store. This can be caused by an invalid server name or credentials, or by insufficient permission. It can also be caused by the role manager feature not being enabled. Click the button below to be redirected to a page where you can choose a new data store.
The following message may in diagnosing the problem: Unable to connect to SQL Server database.
The data that we display in gridview and details view can easily be scraped using automated tools. My question is if someone uses some automated tool and logs into the website and scraps data how can we find that? How can we detect whether a human is viewing the site or a tool? For example one way is by calculating the time up to which a user stays in page from which we can detect whether human intervention is involved. I do not know how to implement that but just thinking about this method. how to detect and prevent automated tools from scraping data from my website? I have used security image in login section, the user has to log in by entering username, password and security image displayed in the login section. Even then in home page a human may type security image and log in to the site and then use an automated tool to scrap data from the site!!When the recaptcha image appears after a period of time then that time alone the user may type the security image and again use automated tool to scrap data from the site. Actually, I have even developed a tool to scrap data from another site. So only i want to prevent this from happening in my site!
Getting error: "Could not establish a connection to the database.
If you have not yet created the SQL Server database, exit the Web Site Administration tool, use the aspnet_regsql command-line utility to create and configure the database, and then return to this tool to set the provider."
I am not usign SQL Express
1. Installed VS2008 + sp1 after that Installed SQL 2008 Standard x86 + sp1
2. Used aspnet_regsql to add aspnetdb to the sql (I can see that db in MSSMS)
3. From my WebProject I can access WSAT but when I click on the Provider and try to test I am getting above error.
Tried diffetent settings in the web.config and also check machine.config Check different solutions form different forums but nothing seams to work.
I strongly believe there is something wrong with my <connectionString/> as by default WSAT points to .SQLEXPRESS but I do not know which file should I update (web.config or machine.config or Web.config)
Do I need to add <connectionStrig> tag to web.config ?
I am building a web site and am trying to run the web site administration tool.

I have ensured that I have user instances are enabled
When I click on Choose Data Store I get the following error

If you have not yet created the SQL Server database, exit the Web Site Administration tool, use the aspnet_regsql command-line utility to create and configure the database, and then return to this tool to set the provider.
I am have problem getting the security selection to view properly. Instead of getting roles and so on I get this following error message:There is a problem with your selected data store.

Click the button below to be redirected to a page where you can choose a new data store. The following message may help in diagnosing the problem:Unable to connect to SQL Server database.
