Asp.Net Routing To A Generic Handler?
I Have a generic handler that's serving member logo images:

Now, I want to use it by caling a url like:

So I would create a route for that (pattern: "logo/{username}.jpg"). But, my problem is - how do I retrieve {username} when inside ProcessRequest() of my generic handler? It's not a page, so I can't get Page.RouteData.Values.

Handler And Generic Handler?
In Visual Studio 2010, when you say new Item, you can see Asp.NET Handler and Generic Handler. Can you tell me what's the difference, I think it came with .NET 4.0 because I couldn't find related thins on Google.

Looking For A Generic Handler / Service For Mongodb?
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.

Secure Generic Handler Calls?
I am creating a myspace application and for some database entries I am using generic handlers which I have hosted on another website. From my myspace application I use ajax calls to those handlers to perform the activities that I want. I want to know how can I make these ajax calls secure? I mean I want to be sure that the handlers are being called by only the myspace app and not by entering url into the browser etc.

C# - Send Html Text To Generic Handler?
I have a WYSIWYG editor on one of my forms and I want to send the contents of the editor to an ASP.NET generic handler for processing via an Ajax call.

I am having a little bit of trouble parsing the html received.

Client Side:

$('.send').bind('click', function(event){
var message = $('#TxtMessage').htmlarea('toHtmlString');
message = escape(message);


So the problem is that even when I call Server.HtmlDecode(string) the message is garbled.

Content Type When Serving A File In A Generic Handler?
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
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.

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

HttpHandlers / Modules :: Access Particular ASPX Page From Generic Handler
I was wondering how to get access to a particular page class from Generic Handler (.ashx). My purpose is to access Default.aspx from the generic handler, create server controls dynamically and then add them to the controls collection. I have thus far been unable to do this. Can someone point me in the right direction? Basically, I have two requirements

i) How to access a certain page class from generic http handler? For example, how can i reference default.aspx and deault.aspx.vb from my ashx?
ii) How to add controls to any form from within the ashx file? I am not looking for the html32textwriter and response.write combinations? I wanted to output controls dynamically like we can in code behind pages like:

form1.controls.add(new hyperlink())

Now, in the above, how to get access to this FORM1? To put things into perspective, here is what I am trying to do:

I have an ashx file that would create controls dynamically based on the querystring parameter in Default.aspx. So, for example, the requested url is default.aspx?op=create. The ashx handler would read the op querystring and create controls for the create operation.

Web Forms :: Using Generic File Upload Handler For Uploading Files In C#?
Am trying to call upload handler on button click to upload the files.some how i don't see that it is working:

public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
string strResponse = "error";
string strFileName = context.Request.QueryString["fileName"];
string strFilePath= context.Request.QueryString["filePath"];
//string strExtension = Path.GetExtension(context.Request.Files[0].FileName).ToLower();
string strSaveLocation = context.Server.MapPath( strFilePath);
strResponse =
context.Response.ContentType =
public bool IsReusable
return false;


<asp:Button ID="btnUpload" runat="server" CssClass="button" Text="Upload" OnLoad="btnUpload_Load" />
protected void btnUpload_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
string strFilePath=System.IO.Path.GetFullPath (FileUpLoad1.FileName);
(sender as Button).OnClientClick = "Uploader.ashx?fileName=" + FileUpLoad1.FileName + "&filePath=" + strFilePath;
Will that still cause postback when button is clicked?

HttpHandlers / Modules :: Passing Parameters From Webpage To Generic Handler Page? to pass parameters from webpage to Generic Handler page and how to receive them

1. When the user clicks a button I want to pass 2 parameters to the 'ViewImage' page. The code below passes just 1 parameter (concatenates the variables sToolGUID and lGrid). Can I split the parameters up or do I have to split them up in the 'ViewImage' page?[Code]....

2. The code below in the 'ViewImage' generic handler page receives 2 parameters from the webpage (if I can send 2 parameters). But how would i use the string instead of the index (querystring["..."]). It looks like I can only use the string querystring["id"] to retrieve the parameter. 


I get the impression I can only send 1 parameter then use the split function to seperate the querystring but surely there is a way to send 2 parameters and why do I have to use an index?

State Management :: Setting Session Values In Generic Handler And Accessing Them From A Page?
I have a generic handler in which I fill up a Session variable. I implemented the IRequiresSessionState interface, so it shouldn't be a problem.

In a given page, I want to display that value, but it seems like the value is always empty. Is it because the session that is accessed and written to in the handler isn't the same one that is used on this page?

In the handler, I used context.Session["EID"] = "somevalue";

edit: i found out what the issue is but I do not know how to solve it. It's because I have this Java applet which reads out an eID, calls the handler to store the data, but the session used by the applet is not the same as the session used by the browser... so how could I exchange this data in a safe way?

HttpHandlers / Modules :: Generic Handler / Prevent Data From Being Written To Live Table Via The Live.aspx Page?
I am using a generic handler (indicator.ashx) to create a graphic that is overlayed from information from a table (called LIVE) from our SQL database. This is working very well and I am very happy with the results.

However I am having an undesirable issue where the query string that is used for this is also being accessed by another page (called ReceiveLive.aspx) which is populating our LIVE table with data when we don't want this. I have been able to track this issue down to our generic handler that seems to populate this table with data whenever the handler is accessed.

The query string that is used to access our graphic through our generic handler is

Our other page that writes data to our LIVE database used the query string which is normally only accessed by a small piece of software that sits on the users PC and sends the data when necessary.

My question is this: How do I prevent data from being written to our LIVE table via the Live.aspx page everytime a query string is processed by my indicator.ashx is accessed?

AJAX :: Handler Not Added - Getting Runtime Error
I've inherited some code that is having a serious problem. On one page, there are several pairs of "Yes"/"No" checkboxes that act like pairs of radio buttons through the use of the ACT MutuallyExclusiveCheckBoxExtender control. They work as expected. However, when I navigate away from the page, I get a "Microsoft JScript runtime error: Sys.InvalidOperationException: Handler was not added through the Sys.UI.DomEvent.addHandler method." error in the dynamically-generated [dynamic] file.

The specific method in the dynamically-generated code is:
var $removeHandler = Sys.UI.DomEvent.removeHandler = function Sys$UI$DomEvent$removeHandler(element, eventName, handler)

The element is set to any of the checkbox controls (I've removed them one-by-one and it happens to ALLof them) and the eventName is "Click". I gather from the code that it's trying to do a removeHandler before the addHandler for the particular element has taken place. True, I don't have any explicit addHandler lines in my code, but I don't any explicit removeHandler lines either. About all I've got in the aspx code is:
[Code] ....

The formatting of the code in this message is a bit weird, but it's basically a simple table with three columns. On each row, there's text in the first column, the checkboxes in the second column and a button in the third. I've searched high and low on the web and nearly every thread I read about his error talks about it in relationship to the use of command buttons in an ACT  UpdatePanel.

Update Using Ajax When Displaying An Image In A Handler?
I have a complex page. Basically, it is a ListView with images displayed through handlers. Paging is done through a datapager. This is all wrapped in an Ajax UpdatePanel so it pages seamlessly.

When the user sees a image they like and click on it, it should display in an image above the ListView. This work when I DON'T use the updatePanel, but of course, then I get flicker. Wrapping it in an update panel results in the paging working. When the user clicks an image it goes to the db as expected, but it simply never updates the image being displayed.

Here is how the image that is clicked on is defined.

<asp:ImageButton ID="imgbtnImage" runat="server" ImageUrl='<%#"~HandlersThumbnailDBHandler.ashx?id=" & Eval("ID")%>' CommandArgument='<%#Eval("ID")%>'/>
