I have a site with potentially very long running SQL queries and verification process. The user would have an idea how far along they would be by the part number currently being analyzed in the process. I've done a lot of reading and have determined that setting up a two way socket with the client would be the best way to communicate this information to the user. Are there any vb examples out there on which I could base my code?
i would like to write a streaming programming which will keep updated or query the database. I would like to use a connection instead of open and close connection on each transaction. But the streaming programming would not end, running at all the time. So, is it any effect if i am using only one connection (within a long period). Such as performance, timeout issue, or others exception.
We are playing video(avi) in our web site .Its taking time to play the file .Nothing is showing for 2 mins.Is there any way to streaming the file.for playing video file code is from this linkhttp://www.daniweb.com/code/snippet216568.html
Is there a way, without using a streaming media server, to stream semi-live audio from an asp.net web app? We want to have a microphone located at a remote site, and stream the data to the client machine for listning. Maybe somehow dynamically build the wav data, or somehow implement this using playlists?
The more I think about it, the more confused I get. Is this even an ASP.NET question? Maybe it's a Silverlight question, or maybe it's an IIS question. Maybe it's a C/C++ question?!
I rent a server from a server farm. I also subscribe to a security service that streams, over the Internet, once every three seconds, via https, a series of JPG photos from four outdoor security cameras at a certain location.
I want to collect these photos on my rented server (server side). Keep in mind these are photos, not video, though after two weeks of streaming you can get around 50 GB of photos I am told, so I'll have to track storage consumed and delete the old ones, but that's a minor issue.
I researched how to capture streaming photos in ASP.NET and found nothing. I researched it in Silverlight and found a number of links for client side video chatting (a new feature supported by Silverlight 4) both multi-user and single-user, assuming they have web-cams attached to their client side PC. Not quite the same problem as what I have, since I don't care to attach any process to the four security cameras (the security company already wrote the software to do that, and is streaming it live). I just want to know how I can capture and store the streamed photos on my server.
I want to allow each user to create a webpage on our domain. example: www.site.com/username
I've created a few pages that get content from database and place it in a folder. I want each user to be able to edit their own data and when they hit "submit". the system will then copy those pages to a folder and modify the code so it read from the right database.
I keep getting "virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS" errors. Is there any way around this error? I want the process to be 100% automatic so that I don't need to manually go into the server and configure the IIS myself.
Here's what I want to do, however I'm not sure of the best place for Excel. Excel files are sent via e-mail from various sources, from each source, they are sent in different versions of Excel and different information layouts, though from each source they are consistent.
I want to give the user a front end to enable them to place the excel files into a drop zone and specify which files have come from which source. I then want to pass the file names and source origin to a workflow service. Based on this info the workflow service will then take 1..n workflow routes based on the source with the ultimate aim that data will be placed into an SQLServer 2005 DB or if the Excel lines cannot be processed, then output for the user to see with a reason. Because this is quite a complex task, I'm taking each source in turn.
My first set of Excel files come in 4 seperate files. I need to first merge the data in the Excel sheets to make 1 File for Processing. Some of the rows in the spreadsheets can be merged into a single line under certain conditions which will make the business logic much easier further on. So, first off After the user has dropped the Excel files into the drop zone I need to open the spreadsheets and merge them. I then need to feed each line to a 'rules' engine to determine the data and business logic that needs to be processed before updating the DB. So I thought I'd use a Workflow service for this since there will be no reason not to work on multiple sources at the same time as I progress through the development of the program. The problem I have is that unless I download the CP1 for workflow I cannot use this directly (so it appears) for working with Excel. So I was looking at using possibly WCF as the 'feed' to the workflow service, but can I use WCF to do the possible long running process of merging the Excel spreadsheets before pasing a row at a time down to the workflow service?
I am building a command line application and I need to transform data within my application's classes to text.
It would make my life easy if I could use ASPX files to render my data into the target text format.
To achieve that, I need to be able to render an aspx file outside IIS. The following article explains how:
The article is developed in 2003.
Is there any better way to so achieve similar result in .NET 4.0? Does MVC make this easier? Is this very memory/performance intensive? I have to create a new ApplicationHost anytime my command line application is executed. Is this approach reliable enough to be used in an environment with high throughput?
I have two projects (Project A and Project B), these projects are hosted in different locations and on different servers. Project B want to access the files of Project A. which technique is required to fulfill my requirements.
my subprojects creates serveral web.config files? I have solution that consists of 10 projects and I want everyone to compalie but the one in the top root. Now my problem is that my subprojects are all located inside folders in the root and my subprojects generates each a web.config. Thhis doesnät work very good so what should I reconfigure would you say?
We need to download multiple files from remote servers. It is a process that would take few hours to complete, since we are talking about images ~50kb each and more than 250.000 in total. Each images will downloaded, resized and then imported to SQL.DB, so we do not need to write files to the disk. Also the applications need to use network credentials, since it is behind ISA.
From your experience, what is the best method to implement this? Should we use WebClient or HttpSockets? Should we use Async methods or Threads ? How can we implement for example 5 simultaneously download to achieve better speed, since we may getting files from many different servers at once?
We use the MojoPortal to a website and have some problems to upload files that is around 100 MB with the upload module. (Pleas note that this has probably nothing to do with MojoPortal but with the ASP.NET and the IIS)
The MojoPortal is set to use regular file Upload(not Neat Uploader) and to be able to upload big files we have set the following :
I have a single project. and I have two folder in it. In the 1st folder I have a class named Class1 and in the 2nd folder I have a class named Class2. Can anyone tell me how I can access members of Class1 in Class2. I have tried by adding namespace in Class1 and Using that namespace in Class2. But it is giving error. It is easy to access classes or their members from App_Code folder. I don't want to put my classes in app_code folder.
I have been wrestling with web services technology/techniques for part of 2010 - learning how to reate/consume/deploy... I have also been experimenting with third party web controls from ComponentArt. In some of the samples from ComponentArt I observed that they use .asmx files locally to populate their custom data controls (datagrids, comboboxes, treeview controls...). What is interesting (and a little bit confusing to me) is that in the ComponentArt samples they reference the web services directly within their controls in the markup. My question is if this can be done normally with controls that ship with Visual Studio (any version -- I have em all 2005, 2008, 2010). I ask this question because from VS I only know to reference web services by right clicking on the project in the solution explorer to add a web reference.
Then in the property grid of a data control -- say a treeview control-- they reference the web service, and when the project is run -- the control is populated with data from the web service.
Do data controls from VS support this technique? My other question is if there is a benefit to using a web service as a datasource for a control and what is this benefit? What is the criteria for using a web service in this manner?
1. A piece of software running locally on my pc periodically uploads (approximately every three minutes) to my webserver an xml file comprised of six fields. The file size is < 1K. 1a. The file name is always the same. ie. filename.xml is uploaded. Three minutes later, filename.xml is uploaded again, this time with different contents. I have no control over renaming this file.
2. A chunk of code that parses the xml and inserts the six fields into a database
3. Deletes the xml file
4. Waits for the next xml file to appear in the folder
5. Goto 2.
The locally running software uploads the file without issue. So far, I'm able to parse the xml, do the database insert and delete the file manually by refreshing the browser window and subsequently running the code in the .cshtml file. What I'm having a hard time conceptualizing is what the best way is to set up an automated event/method that watches the folder and when a new file appears, write it to the db without user intervention. Also, where would I put this code? _AppStart? Do I need to start a FileSystemWatcher event on the server somehow? I'm kinda stumped as to how best to proceed.
One of my NUnit tests has to read in some values from config files. In my main application this process works perfectly well, however when I run the unit test, the code that reads in the values from the config files doesnt read anything in. Ive tried putting app.config in my unit test project (I even tried web.config) but nothing seems to work. Are there any special steps involved when reading from config files in an nunit test ?
I have this following code for bringing page attachments to the user:
The problem is that all supported files works properly (jpg, gif, png, pdf, doc, etc), but .docx files, when downloaded, are corrupted and they need to be fixed by Office in order to be opened.
At first I didn't know if the problem was at uncompressing the zip file that contained the .docx, so instead of putting the output file only in the response, I saved it first, and the file opened successfully, so I know the problem should be at response writing.
