C# - Dynamically Generate HTML In .NET?

I was interested to know whether or not is allows us to dynamically generate HTML inline on the .aspx Source page (not the code-behind). For testing I created the following simple .aspx page...

In my code-behind I have the following:

protected List<string> myList = null;
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (myList == null)[code]....
Notice that the Repeater control did in fact create the four list items. However, the contents (One String, Two String, etc) of the myList list did not come along for the ride.What do I need to do to evaluate the myList list and get its values inside the list item tags? By the way, I'm not concerned with how to use the Repeater control specifically, so if there is a solution to this problem that does not include the Repeater control, I'm fine with that.

Note: I'm aware that I can bind the "myList" generic list to an asp:BulletedList and get the same result. I am more interested in dynamically creating HTML inline of the Source page.

C# - Auto Generate Javascript To Update Client Html Compared To Previous Html?
do you think it would be difficult to write a framework where mvc compares last html it output to the current html we want to output, and instead of sending the entire html, figure out what has changed and generate js code that will do the updating as compared to previous html? (presuming nothing was manually changed on the client using js).

Dynamically Generate URL?
I have a .NET developer working on a web application for me. Basically, the brief was to produce a site which operates a bit like BaseCamp, whereby users register and their usernames are incorporated into the URL of the site for their sub-account holders to log in.E.g. a master account holder registers at [URL] with the username 'dave'. Dave can then send a link to his clients where they can register. The link Dave sends out to his clients to log-in is: [URL] [URL] Basecamp does this but they do it via sub-domains rather than folders at the end of the url (e.g. [url] - I'm keener to use folders as non-techy people (who this is aimed at) could find sub-domains a bit confusing. I thought it would be straight foward to get .NET to generate these URLs dynamically from the database.Anyhow, my developer tells me that it's absolutely not possible to generate the URLs without hard-creating folders in the filesystem and using redirects within those folders to redirect to a generic log-in page with a querystring variable. To me this is a very messy solution. I could do this myself in classic ASP, one of the reasons I have employed a .NET developer, as having used .NET CMS systems like Umbraco this is how they work. It must be possible. Can anyone confirm the situation with this? Is it possible to do in .NET? Would it be a hugely difficult task?

Using C# To Dynamically Generate CSS Files?
I have a site that gets deployed to over a dozen clients. The main website has a base template, and each client has a client folder that overrides the colours. The problem is that there are a lot of CSS files, so making a change that forces us to update every client takes a long time. The automated build process takes care of replacing the updated files.

I would like to change the CSS files to be usercontrols instead, and those usercontrols could then inherit from another usercontrol where client specific values are stored.

So instead of having a forms.css file and then a /client/forms.css file I would have a Forms.ascx file that inherits from a usercontrol that contains the colours.



Then the masterpage would inherit from the usercontrol instead. This would make the maintenance of the client sites much easier.

If this is possible, would it also be possible to have the Forms.ascx control output the markup as CSS? Or make the extension .css and still have the ascx properties?

Generate New Textboxes Dynamically?
how do i go about generating textboxes dynamically, i tried the following but it doesnt work properly because once the add question button is clicked again it removes or overwrites the existing dynamically generated textbox. What i am trying to do is when a user clicks on a button, a textbox is generated which allows them to then insert a question, the amount of questions they can set has no limits
which means many dynamic textboxes can be generated. Here is my code so far;

How To Dynamically Generate Listbox Items

This is what I have so far, I get the correct number of items in the listbox, but I don't get the correct value. They are all "1985".

Dim y As Integer
Dim NextTime As Date = Now
Dim bday_yr As New ListItem()
y = 0
For y = 17 To 25
NextTime = DateAdd(DateInterval.Year, -y, System.DateTime.Now)
bday_yr.Value = NextTime.Year
bday_yr.Text = NextTime.Year

Forms Data Controls :: Cannot Dynamically Generate A Gridview

In the gridview I have dynamically generated controls like textbox, dropdown list etc.I have a few filtering options about, for example: listbox which will postback on change and causes the gridview content to change as well.My problem is: since the controls are randomly generated and every postback will read dataset from database and reload, the naming of the controls are dynamically generated too.

Dynamically Generate Multiple RadioButtonList And Capture Their Values?
I have a situation where I need to generate multiple sets of radio buttons. These radio buttons display One to Many relationship data.

I know how to get it to work with a workaround that I used back in Classic ASP days ... in which I essentially just spit out the HTML dynamically and keep track of my controls using systematic IDs. Which is nothing more then an Primary Key appended to a string constant i.e. String.Format("Dynamic_{0}", myChildRecordPKValue) so my HTML looks like this:


Note that I am using a javascript function which updates a hidden field with the selected value (Each parent record has a corresponding hidden field). So after making selection user will hit the submit button and I get my values using Request.Form[myHiddenField1] and so on ...

AJAX :: Dynamically Generate Tab Panels Using List View?
I have to generate Tab panels dynamically based on a list, for e.g. List<string>. Each of these dynamically generated tab panels will inturn have more controls like textbox,label etc (these must also be dynamically generated).I should also be able to access the value in textbox to perform a DB save operation. I personally felt using the list view along with tab-container n tab-panel would fit in.. But i've not been able to achieve what i wanted...

This is my aspx code and on page load i bind the list view to a List<string>... All i get on my screen is the Add button.

<asp:ListView ID="lvDynamicTextboxes" runat="server" ItemPlaceholderID="itemPlaceholder"
<asp:PlaceHolder ID="itemPlaceholder" runat="server">
<ajax:TabContainer ID="tabContainer" runat="server">
<ajax:TabPanel ID="tabPanel" runat="server">
<asp:TextBox ID="txtText" runat="server">
<asp:Button ID="btnAddTextBox" runat="server" Text="Add" OnClick="btnAddTextBox_Click" />

Looking forward for some advice...I'm open to any other way of doing this too..( I found a way by dynamically adding tab panel and then inserting the textbox, but want to avoid it due to the problem of adding the controls into the control tree and retreiving the values from the textbox for a save operation)

Web Forms :: Generate HTML Using Function?
I'm trying to generate a block of HTML code using a function. I created a function in a class. THe function generates a string that contains html and a strValue that I would like displayed.

public shared function getMyHTML(strValue) return string
str1 = "<table><tr><td><%=strValue%></td></tr></table>"
end function

I added a call to this function in the page_Load eventto generate a string on the page.In the aspx page, I have the following code:

<% =stValue %>

Thestring value passed to the function appears on the page, but none of the html or formattingthat is passed. When I view the pageusing View source, all the HTML is there exactly as it should be. I read this may have something to do with viewstate. But don't know what to use and where to place it to override it.

Quotes In String - Dynamically Generate Meta Tags In File
I am trying to dynamically generate meta tags in a file (which itself is written at runtime). I was to place double quotes in the meta tags and here's how I am trying to do it

int i = 34;
string name = "keywords";
string contents = "cotents";
char quotes = Convert.ToChar(i);
string s = @"<meta name=" + quotes.ToString() + name + quotes.ToString() + " content=" + quotes.ToString() + contents + quotes.ToString() + ">";

If I try to print this string, it shows as empty, however if I remove one quotes.ToString(), it shows up (of course with one missing double quote).

Dynamically Modify Role Permissions And Also Generate The Appropriate Sitemap / Menus?
I'm doing some research on security and sitemaps in and am unfortunately running short on time. I have not worked too much with security so I'm not completely sure if I'm heading in the right direction.

Here is my problem:

I have a public website (i.e. on the internet) that will allow any user to sign up to. The website will be developed using webforms. These users may create other users and assign these users different roles.

Different roles have different restrictions and the menu is displayed appropriately. For example, a user acting as an administrator can see all menu options. Whereas a limited user will only see some of these menu items.

There needs to be the ability for users on our end to modify what pages certain roles can access. For example, if Role1 can do task X, we would like to be able at some point modify Role1 to no longer do task X. This would be done using an application built in-house.

User types (roles) are to be saved in the database. User permissions (what pages each type can have access to) are also to be saved saved in the database.

Here is something I am thinking of doing:

Implement the authorization and authentication set up built in to using the web.config fileUse Sitemaps to dynamically create menus/breadcrumbs from the database

I believe it is possible to do the second one using custom providers (please correct me if I'm wrong). But I am not entirely sure if it's possible to configure the web.config file dynamically.

I suppose this is really more of a yes/no answer but I would just like to make sure I'm not going in the wrong direction. I will be using VS2008 and .net 3.5 framework.
