instead I'm looking for a suggestion on how to accomplish the task I have in mind. I would like to send and array of values to a webservice and save those values into a document on the server and then have the service return the URL back to the caller so that the caller knows where to go to get the document. The kicker is i would like to save on the server as a pdf document...
I am totally a new bee in asp.net mvc. Let me now explain my issue. I have a strongly typed view which inherits from a view model Document. I want to have a partial view in that view itself. My code for this purpose is :
I have a complicated user control on a form that's laid out they way the business unit wants it. What they would like is to be able to export this content to excel and/or PDF as an image. Basically I need to be able to render the user control as a static image.
Is there any simple way to do this or is it even possible? Since the user control is HTML, it's not really rendered at all at the server level as it's just HTML, so I would assume that I might need to interface with IE library.
Imagine there's a web (mvc) application, which home directory on the server is the default c:intepubwwwroot. What i need is: user requests [URL] Server responses with a simple page with a random picture on it from a predefined path, which is not iis folder/app, like d:lolcats. This sample is tremendously simplified, of course. My solution is: when /randomPicture/ is requested, copy random picture to APP_Images/current_response.jpg or whatever to application home folder and then simply render <img src="../APP_Images/current_response.jpg" />
I have one ogoing thread [URL]. IN addition to this thread I would like to insert image in newly generated word document. My problem here I can give our hosted server path using Img Source property. I want to copy or embed the imaged in the word document.
Let me know what is the best way to do it using asp.net/C#.
I've been watching a video on Scott Hanselmnn teaching MVC 2 tricks/tips. He mentions how MVC 2 by default uses ASP.NET Web Forms view engine to render the output of the views; he mentions that the web forms view engine is a little slower than it could be for MVC 2 since it generates a control tree and then outputs the HTML to the page (I hope I said that right).
I was wondering what he meant by web forms generating a code tree before outputting the HTML to the page. Does anyone have insight on the view engine of Web forms and the steps of the rendering process works for ASP.NET and MVC2?
We have some reports that are loaded on a asp.net webpage via the localreport.render() and a request has come in to hide a logo image if it is displayed inline as html on the page and only show the image if it's rendered as a pdf.
is there any way to determine the render mode in the report so i can create an expression to set the display property to hidden for the logo image if it's not pdf mode?
I have xml document and wanting to pass it through wcf restfull service, i am able to do that by using string format i mean i can pass the xml as string param in the restful service and it worked but now my xml document becomes huge so if i pass it as string then it gives URI long error. any way i can pass the huge xml document through the WCF RESTFul service.
Both methods successfuly launch the PDF document displaying the document path and title in the title bar. For security reasons I'd like to HIDE the document title. Can someone advice how this can be done? (How can a PDF document be launched without showing the actual document's name)
