MVC :: Encoding Whitespace / Not Encoding The < As A Encode But Into The Form <?

Jan 5, 2010

Im pulling out a text field from the database which has and 's in it for line breaks. Which I have left there for pupose of being able to edit the fields later on.

So when i try to display the text I need to replace them which I have done with:


Simple enough. Only when I run the page the source code I get for it is:

<br />

So it seems its not encoding the < as a encode but into the form <

Does anyone know how to stop this happen. Or a method around it?

How To Encode The Apostrophe Without Encoding The Code

Mar 12, 2011

Have an issue with the HTML editor. Whenever somebody uses an apostophe ( ' ) in the editor and then clicks save (which will send an update to the database) it is taking the apostrophe as part of my command line and it is returning an error. I used a replace to change the apostophe into an encoded html tag but then it was changing it for all the <div> and <span> created by the editor which was causing none of the code to work. how I can encode the apostrophe without encoding the code? Here's my code:

Web Forms :: Form Post Encoding?

Dec 27, 2010

Our problem is the following:

We have a website that processing products from various web shops! Users of these web shops can send products for our site what will store these products in our database. Users are sending in products through the post method of the form, and within the form the data is in hidden imput fields! Our site using UTF-8 charset, and this service is working like a charm together with other pages that has utf8 chaset too. The problem comes when someone using our service from a site that has other charset then utf8, for example: iso-8859-2.This case the special hungarian characters, like "íéáűőúöüó" are replaced with a '�' character!We have tried to convert the incoming string on server side but that case the '�' has been replaced by '?'. - still not acceptable :)

Web Forms :: How To Do Form Redirect And Encoding

Feb 25, 2010

I have a browser-like software application that logs in to my site through the login control. Depending on the user info used, the application gets redirected to a text file in the server. The content of the file is then displayed in the application.

The files are created using streamwriter createtext.

I can get the content of the file correctly the first time the application logs in to the website, but the the 2nd and succeeding attemps results in garbage data (different encoding maybe?). I didn't get this problem when I was hositng the site locally using (IIS 5.1) - the site is currently hosted using II 6 remotely. what could be wrong? Could it be because I don't log-out of the site?

C# - Auto Encoding Text Inputs - Error "A Potentially Dangerous Request.Form Value Was Detected"

Nov 23, 2010

To prevent my application from crashing with the error "A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected...", I just turned page validation off. I want to revisit this and solve it correctly. Is there a good strategy for this? If people are entering '<' and '>', I think the only way to save their data is to encode it via Javacript. I have tried catching it in the code-behind, but it becomes too late. I am thinking of inheriting the textbox and auto encode/decode the input with client scripts. I also have to think of all the angle brackets that are already saved in my database.

C# - Asp.Net Encoding Configuration

Dec 10, 2010

I am using ASP.NET 4 c# 2010.Well my website has some problem with character encoding.It seems that when I generate my output it is htmlencoded. So a ' is encoded with #number;... this is not always a good thing because when I need to dynamically insert jscript in my controls, every ' or " are encoded and js doesn't work properly...

How to correctly tell ASP.NET not to encode? or better telling him that he must correctly manage ' " and other chars like these withput rendering them htmlencoded?

An example of string being output: this.MyControl.Attributes["onfocus"] = "execJs('param')"

well it results so:

<textarea id=".." onfocus="execJs('param')">...

This is not correct.

Web Forms :: CreateUserWizard Encoding?

Jan 18, 2010

Can someone lead me to understanding when to set the encoding for the email step when sending new member emails. For instance what is the default or how can I tell what it is or if I want to set it in the SendMail event in code. See the thing I am wondering is when is it applied? If I set the MailDefinition-From in the html part then in code using the SendMail event set the encoding using

e.Message.From = new

then I assume that it must actually get applied when the email is sent. Is that correct?

C# - Encoding While Parsing XML File

Dec 11, 2010

I'm developing a small ASP.NET Mvc project in Mono 2.4, Ubuntu 10.10. There is an array of objects, each one of them corresponds to a certain xml file. Reading of the xmls is performed with XmlTextReader. That does not work because xml files have rare "cp866nav" encoding, which is not supported by XmlTextReader ("System.ArgumentException: Encoding name 'cp866nav' not supported"). But it works fine if encoding in xml header is changed to "cp866". I found a kind of solution which consists in initializing XmlTextReader with a StreamReader with a certain encoding instead of file name, like in the code below:

XmlTextReader reader = new XmlTextReader(new StreamReader(Server.MapPath(filename), Encoding.GetEncoding("cp866")));

The issue is that the directory which contains xml files is read only (I can not change it), so I get "System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path '' is denied.". Rather strange, because XmlTextReader initialized with a filename seems to read the files. Is there any solution, considering that program cannot modify or create files?

I have a problem in my 3.5 application (C#) when I try to render in my pages characters like 'è' which are shown in a very strange manner (if i'm lucky i get a ? mark in my web page). in fact Expression Web, when i open my web site, substitutes the è char with &#65533;...How can I tell that I want to use a particular charset so that i can write in the html source letters like è without using hexadecimal codes??????I tried in the web.config this:inside the system.web namespace of the file but nothing works...

VB.Net MailMessage Text Encoding?

Mar 8, 2010

I have an ASP.Net app that allows a user to write text into a Telerik RadEditor control and then send an email.

For some reason I'm sometimes getting strange characters showing up in the email that is generated.

For example if I put the word Test's into the RadEditor box and send it... the email shows up with the text changed to: Test’s.

It seems as though the ' character was used in place of ' because if I use the later, the text would show up just fine. If I pull up the saved record within the ASP.Net apps interface it looks just fine. It also appears just fine when I view the text within the recorded of the MS SQL table it was stored in.

I'm using MailMessage to create the email. I've check the string being sent at the point just before I use SmtpClient to send the message and it looks just fine at his point. Once the email message shows up however I get the strange text (Test’s).

I'm guessing that I have an encode/decoding issue but I'm not sure how I would go about fixing this.


I have tried to add it to the constructor of my email class with/without mybase but that had no effect.

Public Sub New(ByVal EmailDate As DateTime, ByVal LogoPath As String)
MyBase.BodyEncoding = Encoding.GetEncoding("iso-8859-1")
'BodyEncoding = Encoding.GetEncoding("iso-8859-1")
Me.EmailDate = EmailDate
Me.LogoPath = LogoPath
End Sub

I also tried adding it to the code behind of the form that calls the email class just before I create a new SmtpClient but that did not seem to be correct either.

returnEmail.BodyEncoding = Encoding.GetEncoding("iso-8859-1")
Dim smtpCli As New SmtpClient
Catch ex As Exception
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Me, Me.GetType, "smtpError", "alert('There was an error sending the email:
* " & ex.Message & "');", True)
End Try

Web Forms :: .Net 4.0 Attributes.Add Encoding Bug?

May 4, 2010

.Net 4.0 is encoding values when using Attributes.Add. In previous versions it didn't. With the new behaviour it is no longer possible to write attributes containing single quotes.Here's an example.

<asp:TextBox ID="txtTest" runat="server" />
txtTest.Attributes.Add("onkeyup", "keyuphandler('hello')");

With the application pool framework version set to 2.0 it produces the desired result:

<input name="txtTest"
type="text" id="txtTest"
onkeyup="keyuphandler('hello')" />

With it set to 4.0 it produces an undesirable result:

<input name="txtTest"
type="text" id="txtTest"
onkeyup="keyuphandler('hello')" />

.Net 4.0 needs to be fixed to allow the developer to write attribute values containing single quotes.

Encoding HTML In Repeater?

I have an ASP.NET repeater pulling comment data from a database.

Is there another control I should use? How should I display HTML-encoded data from a repeater?

.NET Encoding Page Routes??

Jan 28, 2011

I am using .NET Page Routing (not MVC) to get pretty URLs (or at least removing the file extensions) on my site.On my search page, when a user searches for "stuff" it redirects then to /search/stuff for the results. However when I put in something like "stuff yes:" it gives me a HTTP 400 Bad Request Error.

I tried using javascript to encode the search value before being submitted, and confirmed that "stuff yes:" was converted to "staff%20yes%3A", yet when it performs the routing redirect, in the URL it shows "staff%20yes:" and causes the bad request. Why is it not saving the encoding for the typically illegal characters and how can I make it so?

GridView And Html Encoding?

Feb 22, 2011

I've recently upgraded a client's web site to .NET 4 and we've found out during the process that now GridView column values are automatically HTML encoded.

They have wide use of HTML strings in their code so we must turn that off. I know one solution would go over each column and add HtmlEncode="false". My question is - is there a way to set this to be the default for all GridView columns in this application?

VS 2010 - Crash Course In UTF Encoding

Dec 26, 2012

What is happening is I'm trying to process international characters, but the code is falling through (giving up?) and replacing the field with a blank (well, I guess the screenshot is at the bottom)... The customer recently asked for support for Polish characters, and gave us a list of which ones he wants added.

This is the entire function:

Protected Function chkExtchars(ByVal name As String) As String
Dim j As Integer = 0
Dim dt As New DataTable
Dim c() As Char = Nothing
Dim n As Integer
Dim nc As Char
Dim newname As String = ""
dt = HttpContext.Current.Session("xChars")

[Code] ....

But maybe it needs to be sequential? (the numbers on the far left?)

C# - Character Encoding Problem Utf8?

Jan 14, 2011

I'm storing some html-encoded data in a sql server database and I've written a script to output the data in a csv format minus the html tags and I'm getting a weird issue when html-decoding the remaining data. For example the data contains a quote character (which is html-encoded as ), but when I try to html-decode it the data comes out as a series of weird characters (’). Does anyone know how to solve this issue? The output encoding of the page is UTF-8 if that helps.

URL Encoding - Illegal Character Replacement?

Dec 24, 2010

I am doing some url redirections in a project that I am currently working on. I am new to web development and was wondering what the best practise was to remove any illegal path characters, such as ' ? etc.I'm hoping I don't have to resort to manually replacing each character with their encoded urls.I have tried UrlEncode and HTMLEncode, but UrlEncode doesn't cater for the ? and HTMLEncode doesn't cater for 'E.G. If I was to use the following:

Dim name As String = "Dave's gone, why?"
Dim url As String = String.Format("~/books/{0}/{1}/default.aspx", bookID, name)

I've tried wrapping url like this:Dim encodedUrl As String = Server.UrlEncode(url)AndDim encodedUrl As String = Server.HTMLEncode(url)

Encoding Base64 In Java And Decoding In C#

Aug 4, 2010

I have to send a file to my webservice, but the webservice assumes the file (byte Array) as a base64Binary.

Before the encoding, the byteArrayFile is saved on disk as a regular File. (I'm doing it just for testing)

So, in my Java client for webservice, I'm sending the information this way:

String file = new sun.misc.BASE64Encoder().encode(byteArrayFile);

The webservice have to decode the information and save the received file on disk.
