Data Controls :: How To Post XML Data To Secured (SSL) Website Using HttpWebRequest

May 16, 2013

I am using HttpWebRequest to post XML data to SSL URL.

I am using .NET 4.0 and tried many things but nothing worked for me.

1. I have tried adding Cert using in request but it also fails.X509Certificate Cert

try {
ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback += new System.Net.Security.RemoteCertificateValidationCallback(ValidateServerCertificate);
ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = SecurityProtocolType.Ssl3;

X509Certificate Cert = null

C# - Using HttpWebRequest To POST To A Form On An Outside Server?

Jan 26, 2010

I am trying to simulate a POST to a form on an external server that does not require any authentication, and capture a sting containing the resulting page. This is what the form looks like:

<INPUT type="hidden" name="JSPName" value="GIN">


<INPUT type="text" name="Field1" size="30"
maxlength="60" class="txtNormal" value="">

This is what my code looks like:

ASCIIEncoding encoding = new ASCIIEncoding();
string postData = "Field1=VALUE1&JSPName=GIN";
byte[] data = encoding.GetBytes(postData);
// Prepare web request...
HttpWebRequest myRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("https://XXX/controller");
myRequest.Method = "POST";
myRequest.ContentType = "text/html";
myRequest.ContentLength = data.Length;
Stream newStream = myRequest.GetRequestStream();
// Send the data.
newStream.Write(data, 0, data.Length);
StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(newStream);
string text = reader.ReadToEnd();

Currently, the code returns "Stream was not readable".

Forms Data Controls :: Writing Output To MS Word From A Secured Folder?

Feb 16, 2011

I've got an application (written in I have a results page that spits out some calculations. Ineed to write out that output to MS Word. The catch is, this happens within a folder that is secured (only users that are logged in can generate
the word document).

Here's what I'm using to gen the document. This works ok when running it locally, but not when loaded to GoDaddy hosting.


My code seems works fine locally. However, after loading it to GoDaddy it only works on a non-secured (not subject to ASP Membership), but when trying to use it in a secured folder the page clocks and eventually closes out.

C# - HttpWebRequest POST Adds A NULL Value To Form Variables

Jan 10, 2011

I am attempting to call a RESTful service using an HttpWebRequest object via POST. I am attempting to pass 1 variable with the Request body which contains a url encoded string. I see the request when it hits the server; however, it shows 2 form variables. The first is Form[null] and the second is my variable.I am attempting to locate the source of this NULL key; however, I cannot. Any ideas on how I may be able to remedy this since it's throwing issues when I attempt to use it with the Nancy web framework for .Net.

request.Method = "POST";

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?

How To Make A Website Secured With HTTPS

Feb 5, 2010

i have to build a small webapp for a company to maintain their business data... Only those within the company will be using it, but we are planning to host it in public domain, so that the employees can connect to app from various locations. (Till now I have built web apps that are hosted internally only)

I'm wondering whether I need to use a secured connection (https) or just the forms authentication is enough.

What should I do to prepare my website for https. (Do I need to alter the code / Config) Is SSL and https one and the same... Do I need to apply with someone to get some license or something. Do I need to make all my pages secured or only the login page...

C# - Underlying Connection Closed On HttpWebRequest POST On Production Server?

Nov 23, 2010

I'm getting the "The underlying connection was closed: The connection was closed unexpectedly." error while trying to POST using the HttpWebRequest class on the production server, on my dev machine it works fine.

I originally tried using the WebClient class but I switched to the HttpWebRequest to try some of the suggestions I found while researching the issue (such as setting KeepAlive to false, PreAuthenticate true and ProtocolVersion to 1.0).

Since it's only happening on the production server, i'm guessing that it might have something to do with IIS.

Here's my code


If set the Target Framework (I used a new project for testing) to 2.0 (I didn't test every version of the framework) it works. I'm guessing that .net handles the security differently in .net 4.0.

Web Forms :: HiddenField To Post To External Website And Submit Data To Sql Database With Masterpage

May 12, 2010

I need to send some parameters to an external website using the <asp:HiddenField /> controls and also at the same time, submit data to a sql server database. The part for submitting the data to the database is working, but I need to try to get the parameters from the hiddenfields to also be passed through. I thought all I had to do is create the hidden fields and in the code behind, set the values from the textboxes that the user would fill out.

My source code is below:


What am I missing? The hidden fields are losing their value before posting to the external website. I've looked everywhere to see why this won't work.

AJAX :: Webscrape Website Using Httpwebrequest

Jul 19, 2010

I've searched everywhere for this but I'm unable to solve it by myself. I'm try to webscrape a website using HttpWebRequest. I'm able to login successfuly and to browse through the different pages to obtain all cookies and viewstates as needed. Fiddler supports my claim as I compared all the information. There is one page which I'm unable to load - This page has a certain AJAX loader which prevents me from getting to the page I need. Apperntly page

(1) makes some sort of calculations and when finished transfers to page

(2) using AJAX. If I try to scrape page (2) directly I get an empty page, without the calculations which I need to scrape.

When I send a request to page (1) it just returns the error posted in the subject: 179|error|500|The page is performing an async postback but the ScriptManager.SupportsPartialRendering property is set to false. Ensure that the property is set to true during an async postback.

Here is my code to post the file. I use asp fileupload control to get the file stream.

HttpWebRequest requestToSender = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create [URL]

requestToSender.ContentType = "multipart/form-data";
requestToSender.KeepAlive = true;
requestToSender.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
requestToSender.ContentLength = BtnUpload.PostedFile.ContentLength;
BinaryReader binaryReader = new BinaryReader(BtnUpload.PostedFile.InputStream);
byte[] binData = binaryReader.ReadBytes(BtnUpload.PostedFile.ContentLength);
Stream requestStream = requestToSender.GetRequestStream();
requestStream.Write(binData, 0, binData.Length);
HttpWebResponse responseFromSender = (HttpWebResponse)requestToSender.GetResponse();
string fromSender = string.Empty;
using (StreamReader responseReader = new StreamReader(responseFromSender.GetResponseStream()))
fromSender = responseReader.ReadToEnd();
XMLString.Text = fromSender;

C# - Post A Content Directly From A Website To The Website's Facebook Page?

Feb 16, 2010

I've been reading through the fb developer api documentation and I'm trying to find out what would be the easiest way to post information on a website to the website's own facebook page. for instance - the assumed workflow is like this:

an admin user adds new content to the company website - and once submitted that content should automatically appear as a link on the company's facebook page.

Do I use the API, facebook Connect, a facebook Share button etc. Looking for some recommendations based on my assumed workflow. Project will be coded in c# (although I'm really looking for recommendations of which tool to use from someone's experiences with the api)

Data Controls :: Add Dynamic Rows In GridView With TextBox And Keep Edited GridView Row Data On Post Back

May 7, 2015

I have 3 textboxes , 1 dropdown , 1 Button and 1 gridview .

Textboxes ID are :ACode , ADesc , ASeq
DropDown ID is :CPhase
Button ID is :AddRowBTN
GridView ID is :PhasesTempGrid

Now whats the story is ?After adding some data into textboxes , when a user clicks ADDRow BTN , that data gets saved into datatable , then that datatable gets binded to gridview and it shows my textboxes data in it .

What i want to achieve ?In my gridview i am use templateField and inside that template field there are textboxes ( Let the users edit the row without clicking any button ) .

Take an example of dummy data and problem persisting in there :for e.g i put some data in textboxes :ACode = "ABCD"ADesc = "EFGH"ASeq = "HIJK"Then i click Add BTN , it saves the data in datatable and show in gridview , now if i do this in gridview :ACode = "Edited ABCD"ADesc = "Edited EFGH too"ASeq = "WoW There"Then i click Add BTN , it removes the edited record in gridview and shows original data which had came earlier from textboxes :ACode = "ABCD"ADesc = "EFGH"ASeq = "HIJK"I don't want that to be done ... Simple is that user can enter data from textboxes , click the btn to submit into grid then he can edit the data like he want ... data must not get flashed , here's my coding i have done so far : 

public void AddNewData()
var dt = new DataTable();
if (ViewState["myDatatable"] != null)
dt = (DataTable) ViewState["myDatatable"];


here i havent added dropdown combo in gridview but you can do it so that it will save my time (Bind it just the way PhaseDropDown have bind)...
