4.0 Framework Request Validation Will Not Allow Code-behind To Htmlencode Textboxes?

Jan 8, 2011

I have a form that I have been getting submissions that have punctuation and special characters that trigger the potentially dangerous Request.Form value error. I have been trying use the httpUtility.htmlencode and Server.htmlencode method to sanitize textboxes and textareas.All my tests do not fire because the built-in request validation of the 4.0 framework prevents the code-behind from executing to perform the sanitization. I have included the ValidateRequest in the page header but no matter what I set it too it still does the same thing.

This is the code I have so far.

Session("RequestID") = Server.HtmlEncode(txtRequestID.Value)
Session("FirstName") = Server.HtmlEncode(txtInstFirstName.Text)
Session("LastName") = Server.HtmlEncode(txtInstLastName.Text) [code]....

What can I do to make this work? According to all the websites I have visited it should work.

How To Attach The Validation Framework To Textboxes With In Page

Web Forms :: Textbox Validation Code Doesn't Run When Textboxes Are Empty?

Jan 13, 2011

I want the validation condition to be: on a pair of textboxes, to be valid as long as at least one of them isn't empty.

So I put a customvalidator on the 2nd textbox, hooked up to the following server code and client code:

<script type="text/javascript">
function ECPhoneOrEmailRequired(source, args) {
var ecPhone = document.getElementById("txtEmergencyPhone");
var ecEmail = document.getElementById("txtEmergencyEmail");
if (ecPhone.value.length < 1 && ecEmail.value.length < 1) {
args.IsValid = false;
else {
args.IsValid = true
Protected Sub CustomValidator1_ServerValidate(ByVal source As Object, ByVal args As System.Web.UI.WebControls.ServerValidateEventArgs)
If (txtEmergencyPhone.Text = String.Empty And txtEmergencyEmail.Text = String.Empty) Then
args.IsValid = False
args.IsValid = True
End If
End Sub

From what I can tell thru breakpoints, this code works fine as long as there's something in one of the two textboxes. When both textboxes are empty, the code is never called - and so both boxes empty ends up being allowed.

So what's the correct way to validate one-or-the-other-nonempty condition?

C# - Validation On Name TextBoxes?

Dec 20, 2010

I have a grid where in insert/edit mode you can update the item for a person's names.

I've been asked to provide validation to ensure only alphanumerics are added.

After talking with a colleague we were thinking only validation for length should be done.

The user should be able to enter any characters they like.

Does this sound correct? I understand some names could contain special characters etc.

MVC :: Validation Of XML Content - Error "disabling Request Validation The Only Way To Get The Post To Work"

Sep 30, 2010

Is there a way to disable request validation on an action without having to add the line <httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0"/> to Web.config? I'm currently posting XML to a controller action and get the "A potentially dangerous Request.Form value..." error. Is disabling request validation the only way to get the post to work, or is there some way I can intercept and encode the value that contains XML between the view and the controller action?

C# - How To By Pass Request Validation

Jan 2, 2011

I have a GridView and I need update some data inserting HTML CODE; I would need this data been stored encoded and decoded on request.

I cannot in any way disable globally "Request Validation" and not even at Page Level, so I would need a solution to disable "Request Validation" at Control Level.

At the moment I am using a script which should Html.Encode every value being update, butt seems that "Request Validation" start its job before event RowUpdating, so I get the Error "Page A potentially dangerous Request.Form ... ".

void GridView1_RowUpdating(object sender, GridViewUpdateEventArgs e)
foreach (DictionaryEntry entry in e.NewValues)
e.NewValues[entry.Key] = Server.HtmlEncode(entry.Value.ToString());

PS I USE Wweb Controls not MVC

Recommendation For .NET Webforms Validation Framework?

Mar 4, 2010

I have worked with the .MVC framework using validation frameworks such as xVal or FluentValidation.

Is there anything similar available for webforms as well? I have got a few projects which have to be done using webforms.

What I'm asking for is some kind of integration with the webforms infrastructure. I could just use one of the mentioned frameworks in order to validate the (view/page)models, but I still would have to do a lot of form validation in the page.

Web Forms :: Keep The 4.0 Validation Scheme And Allow Such Request To Come In?

Mar 23, 2011

I read that I need to turn the validation to version of 2.0 to make the validateRequest="false" attribute working. Well, but how to allow requests containing html in 4.0? How can I keep the 4.0 validation scheme and allow such request to come in, say for particular web page?

I don't understand why I should lower the security of other requests like web services . So what's the 4.0 way of doing that, really?

How To Unit Test For Turning Off Request Validation

Dec 20, 2010

I created a little web service to minify JavaScript, and everything was nice, with all my tests passing. Then I noticed a bug: if I tried to minify alert('<script>');, it would throw a HttpRequestValidationException.

So that's easy enough to fix. I'll just add [AllowHtml] to my controller. But what would be a good way to unit test that this doesn't happen in the future?

The following was my first thought:

public void Minify_DoesntChokeOnHtml()
using (var controller = ServiceLocator.Current.GetInstance<MinifyController>())
return controller.Minify("alert('<script></script>');");
catch (HttpRequestValidationException)
Assert.Fail("Request validation prevented HTML from existing inside the JavaScript.");

However, this doesn't work since I am just getting a controller instance and running methods on it, instead of firing up the whole ASP.NET pipeline.

What would be a good unit test for this? Maybe reflector on the controller method to see if the [AllowHtml] attribute is present? That seems very structural, and unlikely to survive a refactoring; something functional might make more sense.

Request Validation - Preventing Script Attacks?

Jan 21, 2010

When a user presses Button1 on the Webpage, I would like to copy slightly modified string from txt1 (Text) into txt2 (Text).
The problem is sometimes I get an error "a potentially dangerous request.form value was detected from the client validaterequest". I get this error when special symbols llike "<" or ">" are in txt1.Text.I've read about that problem. That error is to prevent from hackers who can input scripts into the txt1.All I did is:

1) Put validateRequest="false" into <%@ Page Language="VB" validateRequest="false" at Default.aspx.

2) Default.aspx.vb contains now:

sHTMLEncodedString = Server.HtmlEncode(txt1.Text))

Now it works and allows to take any data from txt1, slightly modify it and put into txt2.So, my question is: Did a level of security was reduced after I wrote validateRequest="false" ? Any code should be added to keep the good level of security? Or, I'd better use another way to copy txt1 to txt2?

Aug 29, 2010

I know this question has been asked million times but I think my situation is different here.I am using .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, there is no form action on the page and it's not happening when I try to submit the form quickly. I am not on a web farm either.I have a page with two GridViews. One Gridview acts as a master gridview and second as detail gridview. First Gridview has autogenerate select button and clicking select would bring related records in detail gridview at the bottom. I have a refresh Link button at the top. Everything works fine. I click refresh button and it works fine too.Ok when problem start happening when I leave the page idle for like 10 minutes or so and then I click Refresh button only then I get this "Validation of Viewstate MAC failed" error.

How To Intercept Or Trigger Client-side Validation Before Ajax Request

Feb 3, 2010

I have a username textbox on a form, that has a few validation rules applied to it via the DataAnnotation attributes:

[Required(ErrorMessage = "FTP login is required")]
[StringLength(15, ErrorMessage = "Must be 15 characters or fewer")]
[RegularExpression(@"[a-zA-Z0-9]*", ErrorMessage = "Alpha-numeric characters only")]
public string FtpLogin { get; set; }

I also have a button next to this text box, that fires off a jQuery ajax request that checks for the existence of the username as follows:

<button onclick="check(this);return false;" id="FtpLoginCheck" name="FtpLoginCheck">Available?</button>

I'm looking for a way of tieing the two together, so that the client-side validation is performed before the call to the "check(this)" in the onclick event.

Edit: To be more clear, I need a way to inspect or trigger the client-side validation result of the textbox, when I click the unrelated button beside it.

Edit: I now have the button JS checking for $("form").validate().invalid, but not displaying the usual validation messages.

Forms Data Controls :: Repeater Textboxes - Unable To Fetch The Values Of Textboxes

Aug 11, 2010

I have a repeater which is binded using a Collection of Entity Data Framework.

Once the repeater is binded using the datasource, the user can control the no of rows present in the repeater using a Dropdown list on the page. For ex: if datasource has 2 rows, user want to add 3 more rows, user selects 5 from dropdown, which adds 3 additional rows to the Repeater. I am able to do this.

The repeater has textbox controls in each row. Now once the user enter the values in this textbox of the newly generated rows, the user can save the values entered with the no of rows specified.

I have a button which is outside the repeater and on click of this i need to validate all the textbox values and save them into dB accordingly.

Here is my code






Right now the problem is im not able to fetch the values of the textboxes present in the newly generated rows.
