I want to implement a forgot-password feature in asp.net mvc that allows users to reset their password, and have some questions in this regard: Lets say that before allowing users to reset their password, I want to verify some extra information such as their first and last name. This info is not stored by default in the table created by aspnet_regsql. What is the recommended approach to address such issues?
Should I store this kind of info in a separate table, and use table joins to verify OR should i modify the schema of the table generated by aspnet_regsql (how?) so that I don't have to use joins? Do I need to write a custom provider OR would that not be necessary? I have read at places e.g. in this post that instead of emailing a temporary password, an alternative is to email a URL that when clicked allows users to change their password. How is this done? How to ensure that the URL expires after 1 hour?
I am implementing "Forgot Password" functionality in asp.net mvc 2.0 site.Scenario is ,If i click Forgot Password button it will go to some page and it asks the user to enter his email id.Once he entered his email-id ,then his password is retrieved from the database and send to his email id . How to send password to user email.
I have used form authentication, when i am trying to open the forgot passord page by click on link button that is on same login page. it needs authentication without authentication, i am not able to access the forgotpage.aspx
After pressing forgot password ,I redirect to page having textbox for email id.When I enter mail id and click on send button I want to send the saved password from database to that mail id. How can I achieve that?
My database contains userid(not auto incremented and specific to user),mailId,password fields.My login page contains UserId nd Password and link of forgot password.
I'm considering going at this myself because my requirements are particular and highly customized:
The grid is bound to a collection of complicated objects, each of which may contain child and grandchild objects. Depending on data and context, the template'd cells vary from TextBoxes to ComboBoxes to Calendars to a combination of controls.TextBox cells have Google-style auto-complete functionality. Also each TextBox cell can expand into a small TreeView pane that allows hierarchy-navigating selection of a value should auto-complete be insufficient.Values from other controls can be drag-and-dropped into cells.Columns are re-sizable and re-orderable. Clicking their headers sorts data.All of the above is AJAX / client-side / Web 2.0 of course.
Has anyone built anything similar from scratch? Or used an effective tool to accomplish this goal? How well would Telerik meet my specs? Is it right to have the hunch that something this specific is best done by taking a Microsoft GridView and extending it myself?
I want to have an upload functionality for uploading large files -- as large as 1GB. I see some sites successfully implementing reliable upload functionality without using any upload clients e.g. ActiveX, Java, etc. Some suggest, the secret is sending the large file in smaller and more manageable chunks to the server. If that't the case how do I handle that?
URL....I use this one as my login, and I addes hyperlink for Forgot Password. But why I can't access the FORGOT PASSWORD.aspx for every time I click it. And when I login it redirects t Forgot Password.How I can access it without logging in?
I've started some preliminary work on getting a Google-like search functionality into my app - ive never done anything like this before so i thought id be a good idea to run by what im thinking of doing at a high level
1) Using MS SQL 2008 w/ Full Text Search Enabled
2) ASP.NET MVC 2 app is using the Repository pattern, with Linq to SQL for data access I'd like for the user to put in one giant text search value, and the full text to do a search over multiple tables and return a mixed result (Employees, Organizations, Offices, etc)
3) I have a simple stored proc that does a Full Text Search on *one* table that looks like this:
4) My Linq to SQL datacontext calls this SP and which works well enough, i have no inflection or ranking going on but ill add that in later...
Q: How do i handle searching over *multiple* tables, doing some digging around it looks like Full-Text doesnt really allow for searches to span over more than one table - which kinda sucks..although ive seen some workarounds
Q: Is it ok to do a Full Text Search for every table i plan on searching through, and combining the results at the business layer (maybe using rank as sort)? I've heard of things like LUCENE but id really not like to do that at this time.
I am using ASP.NET MVC and jquery. I would like to implement preview functionality to a form. i.e. I have a form with number of fields for example name, address etc.. Before the user submits the info, he/she can preview it as to how it will appear on the site. how I could implement this in a cleaner way? I have tried regenearting the html on click.. but it's very messy.
1. I want to use membership functionality without username/password
instead I want to use this functionality based on tracked IP's. Is it possible
Is it a good idea? I want to use my application on all famous mobile platforms and desktops mac/win
2. Is it hard (or is it good idea) to have user info stored into database for specific amount of time based on IP instead of persistent cookies? (I mean user can close browser, etc. Usually this time will be 1 hour)
When a user that has their IE set to save passwords hits my "Reset Password" form, the first text box set with TextMode set to "Password" is populated with the users saved password. Understandable, this is not the affect I would like as this is their "old" password. I cannot set the text of a text box with mode set to "Password" (naturally). Does someone know how to suppress or clear this value when IE is saving passwords?
