i've to display a messagge in my homepage (default.aspx) different for each "installation" of my web app. i would like to avoid to make a call to database to show this message.. so i've thougth to use web.config to store something like this
<add key="WelcomeString" value="lorem ipsus <b>doloret sit amen</b>" />
But i've noticed i can't use html markup into web.config Is there a better approach ? Or is there a way to insert html markup into web.config ?
I want to show/hide markup based on above web.config entry for a non-server html tag without using code behind file (as there is no .cs file and there are no runat=server controls). Something similar to following pseudo code:
IF ( IsDemo == "true" ) THEN <tr> <td id="tdDemoSection" colspan="2" align="left" valign="top"> <.....> </td> </tr> ENDIF
Does anyone know that we can write such conditional logic in .aspx markup? \
Section I'm hiding or showing have some data like username and password. So, I do not want user to use Firebug or Web Developer Tools to see hidden markup. markup should not go to client side.
I have a field in my SQL database that contains HTML markup from the HTMLEditor control in the AjaxControlToolkit. When I use the Report Viewer and SQL Reporting Services to display this field in a report, the field is displayed using the tags. I would either like to hide the tags completely or render them so that they format the text appropriately, rather than the tags be displayed as a load of <p>, <br>, <strong> tags etc. I've searched around and tried out a few different articles but haven't yet had any success.
I'm a new comer to the asp.net world. I hear a lot about asp.net mvc and it's advantage over webforms about the ability to customize the markup and css. I also heard that asp.net is much easier to learn than asp.net mvc so I decided to go for asp.net and webforms. My question is: what's the level of customization a web developer/designer can get with webforms concerning the markup and css?
I have a Master Page as well as a standard Web Form aspx file. What if I wanted to dynamically modify the complete HTML markup in an aspx file (perhaps based on a conditional statement - perhaps in a specific content place holder), how would I go about doing this? Sorry I'm coming from a PHP background so this is why I'm asking such a simple question.
I have an asp.net page i do authentication and authorization of a user and user can make several ajax requests from this page. What i want to ensure is that the request only from this page so i will store some data(or token)(possibly a function of userID + user IP address + current time) encrypted in the page aswell as in the session so the requests that come with this token will only get served.
Everytime I view the source of ASP.NET website I found alot alot of HTML markup generated. I even tried Visual web Developer and design a simple page and then do the same thing with PHP and I found ASP.NET generates more HTML!
Now, how can ASP.NET be faster if it is generating HTML in this way!
what it should output is my enable image with the text on the right saying 'enable' if i only have Text='<img src="app_images/enable.png" />' i have the image, just a question of how to add the resource entry at the end of it...
Currently, I work on an ASP.NET project which is hosted under version control and is used on several developer machines, tester machine and production environment.
In three cases, configuration (Web.config) may be different. For example, developer and tester environments use testing SQL Server, whereas in production environment, another SQL Server is accessed, so the connection string is different in those cases.
We want to keep three versions of Web.config in subversion. But modifying each of three files every time we need to add, remove or change a common setting is annoying: it would be nice to have a common, master Web.config, which will be inherited by each of the three Web.config files.
How to set up an ASP.NET project which will use a master configuration file and different slave configuration files on different machines, thus sharing the same project/source code/configuration files in subversion?
When I open my ASP.NET site in IIS and try to open the .NET Trust Levels, I get an error message:
.NET Trust Levels There was an error while performing this operation.
Details: Filename: ?C:inetpubwwwrootmyappweb.config Line number: 445
Error: This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level. Locking is either by default (overrideModeDefault="Deny"),or set explicitly by a location tag with overrideMode="Deny" or the legacy allowOverride="false".
I've checked a few places, but I haven't found anything that seems like it would be locking that setting. Is there a systematic way of determining where that setting is locked?
I'm building form validation controls for our C# ASP application. The bulk of the work is handled by a BaseValidator control (subclassing System.Web.UI.UserControl), which also has the markup for the validation output. This is then extended by subcontrols like PasswordValidator, that provides the Validate method and any extra fields needed by that validator control.
(The end goal is to have controls like <uc1:PasswordValidator ControlId="txtPassword" /> which we can plop into any form with minimum duplication.)
However, PasswordValidator.ascx.cs cannot access the form elements defined in BaseValidator.ascx; the only way I've found to do so is to duplicate the markup in each subcontrol's *.ascx file. How can I extend BaseValidator.ascx.cs and access BaseValidator.ascx's markup in the subclass?
