C# - Error With Content-disposition?

May 17, 2010

how should I handle an exception that occurs after sending a Content-Disposition header for an attachment? I'm trying to generate a report at server and send it as a file, but if an exception occurs during the report generation, the error message itself is sent to browser which still takes it as a content of a file and shows a Save As dialog. User cannot know there was an error generating report, saves the file which is in wrong format now.Is there a way to cancel the response with this header and redirect to an error page? Or what else can I do to inform user about the error?

Probably I could generate the report first and only if there was no error send the headers, but I want the report render directly to the Response output stream so that it does not need to stay in memory.

Here is my code:

this.Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";
this.Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", @"attachment; filename=""" + item.Name + @"""");
GenerateReportTo(this.Response.OutputStream); // Exception occurs

Web Forms :: Content-disposition Attachment Filename=?

Feb 15, 2008

Those of you who've dealt with transferring files via Response will understand the subject line. Basically I'm doing:Response.AppendHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=" + myFilename);But how can I appropriately encode the filename? The simplest example being a space. Without doing any encoding, the filename presented to the user in the download window is cut off at that space. HtmlEncode suffers the same problem, and UrlEncode replaces space with a '+', which isn't translated at the client-side, so they just end up with '+' in their filename wherever there should be a space.

Web Forms :: Using The Content-disposition Header To Force A File Download?

Dec 10, 2009

I'm using the content-disposition header to force a file download in ASP.NET.

It works, but my problem is that in the save dialog (in any browser), it doesn't seem to know the total file size. (In Internet Explorer, for example, it says Estimated time left: Unknown (Opened so far: XXX)

I thought I had encountered this in the past and fixed by also adding the content-length header. But this doesn't seem to have any affect.

Here's my code (part of the ProcessRequest method of IHttpHandler):

var file = new FileInfo(context.Server.MapPath(path));

C# - Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition") Not Opening File In IE6?

Oct 8, 2010

I'm using Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + Server.HtmlEncode(FileName)); to pop a 'open/save file' dialog for the users, so that they can download an file on to their local machines.

This is working good normally in IE7,But on IE6 the file is not opening when user click on the open button in 'open/save file' dialog. I gone through the net and found that Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline; filename="+Server.HtmlEncode(FileName)); should be provide to work that in IE6,and its works fine..

But the issue is most of the files that can open in browser opens on the page itself.. ie user on a mail page and click download an image file it opens there,, i need it to open in another window as in case of IE7 what can i do... other files that cannot open in bowser open with current application in system ie(word,excel etc)..

The Code i used is here....

Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" +FileName);
Response.AddHeader("Content-Length", file.Length.ToString());
Response.ContentType = ReturnExtension(file.Extension.ToLower());
private string ReturnExtension(string fileExtension)
switch (fileExtension)
case ".txt":
return "text/plain";
case ".doc":
return "application/ms-word";
case ".xls":
return "application/vnd.ms-excel";
case ".gif":
return "image/gif";
case ".jpg":
case "jpeg":
return "image/jpeg";
case ".bmp":
return "image/bmp";
case ".wav":
return "audio/wav";
case ".ppt":
return "application/mspowerpoint";
case ".dwg":
return "image/vnd.dwg";
return "application/octet-stream";

Configuration :: Continuous Parser Error "Only Content Controls Are Allowed Directly In A Content Page" Messages

Nov 17, 2010

I bought a website a few years ago, hosted with WebHost4Life,. Since their migration their has been nothing but problems with my site, however, I am stuck because I don't have the knowledge to move it, have tried with no success. Anyway, recently I have been getting parser error messages, Webhost fixed them, and then it starts over again. It takes them weeks to get around to it and since its my livelihood, I can't afford for the site to be down for 5 days then running for one day. I've tried to contact the guy that built the site to no avail, he won't answer my emails.

why these parser errors keep happening. This is a recent thing from the past 2 months, never had this before. What can I do to stop it. it looks like the knowledge here is unreal, I'm in awe everytime I read your answers. BTW, heres my lastest parser error:

Parser Error Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately.

No Index.aspx.cs Error "Server Error Cache-Control: Private Content-Type: Text/html; Charset=utf-8"

Jun 1, 2009

I am a novice at .net and am trying to get to the bottom of a problem with a website application that has been developed for myself. As a background, the website is hosted on a shared windows host. It speaks to a MSSQL2008 database and currently we are unable to get the index.aspx to work. There are other pages which at least present errors when you directly enter their URL, however the index.aspx tries to download a file rather than process the file with .NET. The hosts have informed us that the problem lies with our code. The index.aspx has the following code:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" Inherits="domainname.Controller" Trace="false" Codebehind="index.aspx.cs" MasterPageFile="~/templates/domainname.master" %>

There is no index.aspx.cs! i thought this was the problem but our develioper has informed us that it is a complied application and thats not a problem. The hosts have said that our application throws an error as below: The error from your weblogs is: HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error Cache-Control: private Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8 Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.0 X-AspNet-Version: 2.0.50727 X-Powered-By:
ASP.NET Date: Mon, 01 Jun 2009 08:19:53 GMT The hosts uploaded a file called text.aspx which worked fine.

If i change the file name from index.aspx to default.aspx then we are presented with an error which is progress at least. Having worked on IIS in the past to me this means that index.aspx is not on the list of default documents. However the hosts argue that it is on there. When we run the files as default.aspx we are presented with: Server Error in '/' Application................

MVC :: Static Content Returns A 500 Error?

Nov 16, 2010

I think I might be missing something obvious but I'm not sure. The other day I was trying to run throught the windows live ID domain verification process on my asp.net mvc site. Part of the process requires you to download a text file and put it in the root of your site which your domain points to. When I would click the verify button in the windows live app verification process it would fail. In a browser, I could hit the request the text file and get a 200, which puzzle me. I then used this site http://www.internetofficer.com/seo-tool/redirect-check/ to check for any redirection issues. Suprisingly when I enter in the url to check, in my case http://www.whatitcoststobeme.com/741KXPjf42zgZRnV6O1LsO92.txt, it returns a 500 error. I ran this same test against a non-MVC site and the verificaton process passed plus the redirection checker return a 200 ("direct link" on their site). The environment this was tested in was IIS7.

why this is happening with static content on a ASP.NET MVC site? I want to say it's something to do with the url routing handlers.

Content Placeholder Javascript Object Expected Error

Jan 29, 2010

I have the following code behind that was, until recently, working fine and dandy!

tbxProdAC.Attributes.Add("onclick", "$('#" + GridView1.ClientID + "').remove();
$('#" + radProdAC.ClientID + "').attr('checked', true);
$('#" + ddlBuyer.ClientID + "').val('--Choose Buyer--');
$('#" + ddlSub.ClientID + "').val('--Choose Sub Category--');
$('#" + ddlProd.ClientID + "').val('--Choose Product--');");

However, ever since I have introduced the notion of content place holders (from a master page), I am repeated getting the Object Expected error.Now I understand why this is happening, asp.net is amending the control names to take into account the CPH i.e. $('#ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_radBuyer').attr('checked', true);

How do I go about reslving this issue, effectively 'renaming' my asp.net controls to take this into account?

Web Forms :: Browser Error Message Re Mixed Content?

Aug 4, 2010

I have a website that deliveres content from secure source (https://) after the user authenticates. I added a new page where I use an Iframe to display a pdf file. It works fine when I try it from the dev server where I do not get directed from https, but when trying from the actual site I get the error message 'Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?' I understand this is because the Iframe source is not secure (the source file is in the root directory of the webpage) Where should I store the content for the Iframe? Can I use a local directory on the server rather than one in the root directory?

Big ViewState Content Result A HTTP Error 504 - Gateway Timeout?

Nov 16, 2010

I have one asp.net page which seems to return a very big content (5,648,733 bytes and that is mostly consumed by VIEWSTATE) ending with a 504 Gateway timeout error. I am tracking the http request/response by using Fiddler.

And basically, when I post-back the same page -by clicking a button- the post-back fails with thoose errors shown in IE and in FF:

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage --> in IE

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. --> in FF

Question: Can this be because of the big size injected in VIEWSTATE; and if yes, what is the main
reason so that it loads the page but cannot post the page back after?

Custom Server Controls :: ContentPlaceHolder Nested In Custom Control Causes Error On Content Page?

Oct 13, 2009

I couldn't think of a better way to write that subject... I created a basic custom control. So basic, in fact, that it only inherits from WebControl and adds the PersistChildren = true and ParseChildren = false, nothing else:


On my master page the code surrounding my ContentPlaceHolder looks like this:


When I move to my content page, intellisense no longer works for any controls I place within my asp:Content control and it actually throws an error that it is "not a known element". Now I've done a little sleuthing and determined that nesting my custom control within the TableCell is what's causing the problem, I just don't know why. If I move the TestControl outside of the Table (leaving the ContentPlaceHolder within the TestControl) everything works fine.

I am building a website in which all of the site layout is in Master page and the content of the site is in the inherited pages. I have various links for navigation in which i simple use Response.Redirect to transfer to different pages. Now the problem is that I want to put the content place holder inside Ajax Update panel so that the postbacks are Asynchronous and I want to show the postback by an animated image inside Update Panel progress control. The problem is that I am unable to achieve this result and the entire page is posted back and rendered again. I have placed the content place holder inside the Ajax control toolkit's Update panel but it does not work. Is there any way that I can change the content of the content place holder to a new page with asynchronous postback.
