.net - Async HttpWebRequest With No Wait From Within A Web Application?

Feb 1, 2010

In my web application (ASP.NET) I have a block of code that uses HttpWebRequest to make a call to a REST service and continue execution. Right now it's taking longer than I would like to complete the full web request. The thing is that what the REST service returns isn't useful. Ideally I would like to send an Async web request to the REST service and then NOT wait for a response. The problem is that I've tried it out using request.BeginGetResponse(New AsyncCallback(AddressOf myFunc), Nothing)

To start an async request and instead of NOT waiting (which I would assume would be the default behavior of an async request) it continuously executes the callback function before executing the next line of code after BeginGetResponse.I'm suspecting that ASP.NET may convert it to a sync request when it's within a web application. I'm led to believe this because there's a IAsyncResult result object that is passed into the callback function and when I examine its CompletedSynchronously property it's always set to true.if it's possible to do an async HttpWebRequest (with no wait) from within an ASP.NET web application or is it always converted to a synchronous request?

Win Form Application Freeze On HttpWebRequest File Post

Sep 3, 2010

I have an application that will upload files from my client to a web server using HttpWebRequest (with the function suggested here: [URL]

My problem is that when the file (about 10 mb in size) is being posted the whole application freezes (e.g. "application is not responding" when I try to move the window).

Do I need to put the uploading in a separate thread, or is there any other simple way solve this?

C# - Async Function Thread.Sleep In Web Application?

Sep 8, 2010

I maintain a ASP.NET web application that causes a user's network connection to reset for several seconds when it executes a procedure. Therefore, the page request times out on the user's end as they never receive the web application's response (the connection dies before it gets the response packet).

To resolve this situation, I was contemplating having the ASP.NET page execute an asynchronous function that incorporates a Thread.Sleep(5000); // sleep for 5 seconds before executing the connection reset This way, the browser has 5 seconds to receive the page's response before their connection resets.

I have concerns with using Thread.Sleep and asynchronous functions in ASP.NET though. I've never attempted to do it before, so I'm unsure of the potential problems it may cause. Does anyone see potential problems with starting an asynchronous thread that contains a Thread.Sleep in an ASP.NET application?

Wait Three Seconds Then Turn To Another Webpage?

Mar 29, 2011

I'm currently using ASP.net. I wonder what would I need to do to let the browser wait for 3 seconds so my users can read the text "Customer Successfully Added" before turning to another page? I have attached my code as follows.

Protected Sub btnAdd_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnAdd.Click
Dim db As New DatabaseClass
db.addProfile(txtLN.Text, txtFN.Text, txtUsername.Text, txtPassword.Text, txtAddress.Text, txtZip.Text, txtPhone.Text, txtEmail.Text)
lblMessage.Text = "Customer Successfully Added"
End Sub

In addition, I'm not sure how to utilize MSDN. For me, its information overload, I'm wondering how to go about finding the solution on MSDN so i would be able to solve my problems in the future.

Execute Sql Script And Not Wait For Completion?

Aug 26, 2010

I have a sql stored procedure that runs for about 3 minutes, I am looking to execute this stored procedure from asp.net, but I know that if I do, that asp.net will most likely time out.

I'm thinking of just creating a job within sql to have it execute that stored procedure, and have asp.net call a stored procedure to call that job. I have a table that is updated when the stored procedure starts, and when it ends.

My application will use this to determine when the script has finished, however, I wanted to know if there is another way to run the stored procedure and not have it wait for it to finish to push a response back.

I just want to know if there is a more efficient way to do this, or if I should just stick to creating jobs for scripts that take forever to run.

Web Forms :: Adding Wait Time In Processing?

Apr 30, 2010

I have a 'Generate' button on form that does some file processing. It creates files, zips it etc etc. I would like to add some wait time (3-5 seconds) in the logic so as to complete the file processing logic. What happens right now is visitor clicks the button to generate those files and clicks another button to download. When they try download button many times the files are not created as in processing. So it fails to download. The only way I can ensure it does processing for longer period to allow completion.

JQuery :: Show Wait Message On Submit?

Nov 5, 2010

How can I use JQuery to be able to show some kind of "Please wait"-dialog when a user clicks a button? I want to be able to show for example an alert saying "Your request is being transmitted" while the request is sent to the server and processed through the controller (I use MVC). Once the response comes back, I want to reload the page with the viewmodel returned from controller action, just as usual. Is this possible to do with JQuery or ASP.NET AJAX?

function Save()
alert("Please wait);
//make the request async and reload the page when it returns...

Wait Until Image Loads Before Performing Function?

Mar 17, 2010

I'm trying to create a simple portfolio page. I have a list of thumbs and an image. When you click on a thumb, the image will change.

When a thumbnail is clicked, I'd like to have the image fade out, wait until the image is loaded, then fade back in. The problem I have right now is that some of the images are pretty big, so it fades out, then fades back in immediately, sometimes while the image is still loading.

I'd like to avoid using setTimeout, since sometimes an image will load faster or slower than the time I set.

Here's my code:

$(function() {
$('img#image').attr("src", $('ul#thumbs li:first img').attr("src"));
$('ul#thumbs li img').click(function() {

AJAX :: How To Force JavaScript To Wait For Return Value From Webservice

May 12, 2010

I'm calling a web service called GetTooltip from inside Javascript. However, since the web service is called asynchronously, it doesn't wait until I get the return value from the web service, before it continues again. This is a bit of a problem for me, since the web service is in a for-loop. How do I make the Javascript wait until I hear back from the web service, before letting Javascript continue the for-loop?

Configuration :: First User Long Wait For Login.aspx?

May 7, 2010

I'm using the standard ASP membership provider

The first user of my site per day (or if nobody has used the site for awhile) gets a pretty long wait to bring up login.aspx. Subsequent users, site comes up immediately.

I understand this is an IIS setting to save resources. (I'm on IIS6). What is the community doing about this problem? I've read about writing programs to keep the site alive by hitting it every 20 min, but there must be a better way. One of my project is for a small business to provide order information for their customers -- gets used every day but not that many times per day.

Is this the reason most developers will have the first page as index.html then you click to login from there while it says "please wait for login" or similar?

Architecture :: Queue Events - Second Button Click Routine To Wait Until The First One Is Complete?

Oct 13, 2010

That doesn't make any sense at all but what I mean is, if you've got a button for example which takes say 10 seconds to complete whatever is in the button click routine, and somebody else on a different computer clicks the same button just after, is it possible for that second button click routine to wait until the first one is complete? And most importantly is it something fairly simple to do? I'm sure I accidently found some information on this when searching the web for something else but I can't remember what I was searching for before and can't find it now

Web Forms :: How To Show A Popup Message Box And Wait For The User To Click The OK Button?

Jan 11, 2010

I have a "Save" button in my asp.net (VB.Net 3.5) page. When clicked it saves data in the database and redirects to another page. Before it redirects, I have to show a popup messagebox informing the clients that the data has been saved. The popup box will have a "OK" button. Only when this button is clicked, the page should be redirected to another page.

If I used Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript to register a javascript to show an alert message, it is never shown and page is redirected straightaway. Similar behavior happens when I tried to show a mesage box by creating it through a server control as described

Php - .NET To Wordpress SSO With HttpWebRequest?

Dec 10, 2010

I am attempting to create a single sign on experience between an asp.net site and a wordpress site using a simple form POST method.

In my asp.net 'create new user' page code behind, I'm using the post method of an HttpWebRequest to send the required information to the php page.

It almost works! The new wordpress user is created in the mysql database, but they are not logged in. How can I get wordpress to log them in?Here is my HttpWebRequest
