C# - Response.AddHeader In An Ascx File?

Apr 1, 2011

Is it possible to use the Response.AddHeader particularly Im trying to use the "Refresh" of it. I need it to pause before it redirects but the place where the code is being ran is in a ASCX in the codebehind. It does nothing when I have the following in my Codebehind:

HttpContext.Current.Response.AddHeader("Refresh", "6;URL=Default.aspx");

Any way I can redirect a user in the codebehind on a ascx page?

Web Forms :: Response.AddHeader Not Working In Safari?

Nov 20, 2010

my website after a sucessful entry i redirect the users to their previous uploads which is the manageaccomm page. The code behind that does this is Response.AddHeader("REFRESH", "3;URL=manageaccomm.aspx");

This works in firefox but not in safari. In safari it goes to the following [url]

and the message "resource could not be found Requested URL: /manageaccomm.aspx, 3;URL=manageaccomm.aspx".

I'd like to fix this but keep it working on other browsers .

Web Forms :: HTML Source Code In Response Object?

Jan 1, 2011

I am creating a web application that allows a user to download a csv file of a gridview. However, after looking at tutorials online such as such, I successfully got the table I wanted but there are HTML content appended to the table as well.There was also a similar problem being brought up on the forum, The solutions didn't help me much though. However, I am not really sure how Handlers can benefit this. Furthermore, I don't want the user to be navigated to a blank page just to download the csv file. I tried to debug and insert removal code to remove the html code before the response object is being wrote out but seems even at the end of the writing method, the response object seems to be holding just the table content only.

How can I remove the html content and add new string to the Response object. If I use the Respose.Write method the page contains the string, but while taking the view source option from browser it will display some html tag like Doctype, head, body etc. My requirement is only the string should be displayed in the source.

C# - Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition") Not Opening File In IE6?

Oct 8, 2010

I'm using Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + Server.HtmlEncode(FileName)); to pop a 'open/save file' dialog for the users, so that they can download an file on to their local machines.

This is working good normally in IE7,But on IE6 the file is not opening when user click on the open button in 'open/save file' dialog. I gone through the net and found that Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline; filename="+Server.HtmlEncode(FileName)); should be provide to work that in IE6,and its works fine..

But the issue is most of the files that can open in browser opens on the page itself.. ie user on a mail page and click download an image file it opens there,, i need it to open in another window as in case of IE7 what can i do... other files that cannot open in bowser open with current application in system ie(word,excel etc)..

The Code i used is here....

Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" +FileName);
Response.AddHeader("Content-Length", file.Length.ToString());
Response.ContentType = ReturnExtension(file.Extension.ToLower());
private string ReturnExtension(string fileExtension)
switch (fileExtension)
case ".txt":
return "text/plain";
case ".doc":
return "application/ms-word";
case ".xls":
return "application/";
case ".gif":
return "image/gif";
case ".jpg":
case "jpeg":
return "image/jpeg";
case ".bmp":
return "image/bmp";
case ".wav":
return "audio/wav";
case ".ppt":
return "application/mspowerpoint";
case ".dwg":
return "image/vnd.dwg";
return "application/octet-stream";

WCF / ASMX :: Missing XML Header And Envelope Header In SOAP Response With.Net (2.0) Web Service

Jul 19, 2010

In my ASP.Net (2.0) Web Service implementation (The implementation class derives from

System.Web.Services.WebService with WebServiceBinding confirming to WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1 .

The SOAP response sent out by the Service has two elements missing :

1> The XML header itself : (<?xml version="1.0">)

2> The opening and closing Envelope tags with NameSpace ("<S:Envelope xmlns:S=>" and "</S:Envelope>" ).

This results in "breaking" of my client unless the above mentioned headers are inserted at the client end, and my intent is to avoid bypasses at the client end as far as popssible.Is this the default behavior ?

Listview - Reverting Response Header?

Jun 21, 2010

've programmatically created a listview, for displaying images. When you click on the download the ItemCommand is fired, and the browser sends the user the image as a binary response, using the following:

SPFile ImageIfile = spfolder.Files[ServerName];
byte[] bs = ImageIfile.OpenBinary();
string res = Page.Response.ContentType;
Page.Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg";
Page.Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + Path.GetFileName(fileName))

This works, exactly once. Then neither the download link, nor the DataPage paging controls
work until you refresh (Indeed any postbacks).

EDIT: It's a SharePoint 2007 WebPart, this is the declaration of the ListView in the CreateChildControls method:

lv.ItemPlaceholderID = "itemPlaceholder";
lv.GroupPlaceholderID = "groupPlaceholder";
lv.ID = "MediaSearch";
lv.LayoutTemplate = new LayoutTemplate();
lv.GroupTemplate = new GroupTemplate();
lv.GroupItemCount = 4;
lv.ItemTemplate = new ItemTemplate();
lv.EmptyDataTemplate = this.Page.LoadTemplate("/usercontrols/MediaResults_Empty.ascx");

And this is the ItemTemplate and DataBinding

public class ItemTemplate : ITemplate
public void InstantiateIn(Control container)

MVC :: Response.End And Filters / Can Get Response.End() To Work When Called

Nov 19, 2010

I have a static method that I use to control REST styled HTTP codes when my mvc application encounters an exception.

The method looks like:


This is static becuase then I can call it within an action or inside a filter. The problem I am having is that when I call RaiseException inside a filter, it stills goes into the requested action. Response.End() doesn't seem to have any effect. Any clues on how I can get Response.End() to work when called?

Using A Response Object Within A Class Library

Dec 29, 2010

My problem today is that I am having trouble shifting some functionality, that is being used in multiple applications, from the applications themselves to a class library I have started building. The issue comes in the fact the code was written to utilize Response objects as seen below...


This is all currently within a function called "DownloadDocument". I continue to have issues running any of the Response object functionality. I usually get the error saying, "Response is not available in this context", is there anyway to use a Response object in a class library file?

C# - HTTP 502 Proxy Error - The Size Of The Response Header Is Too Large. Contact Your ISA Server Administrator. (12216)

Feb 23, 2011

Some of my users are getting the following error

HTTP 502 Proxy Error - The size of the response header is too large. Contact your ISA server administrator. (12216) Internet Security and Acceleration Server

I am guessing it has to do with the size of hidden "__ViewState" tag in my ASP.NET pages.

I also realize that this is restriction imposed to by IT on the users end and I have no contol over it.

I disabled ViewState on all the controls in my ASP.NET pages. However, __ViewState is still generated very large (as always) to persist control-state (e.g. checkbox, radiobutton, etc.)

C# - Using Response.Filter With Response.TransmitFile?

Aug 10, 2010

I'm using Response.Filter in order to implement stream compression in accordance with HTTP Request Header Accept-Encoding

Here's the important stuff:

if (AcceptEncoding.Contains("deflate") || AcceptEncoding == "*")
HttpApp.Response.Filter = new DeflateStream(PreviousOutputStream, CompressionMode.Compress);
HttpApp.Response.AppendHeader("Content-Encoding", "deflate");

By and large this works as intended. However, I'm in a situation where I'm using an ActionResult on an MVC Controller to serve up files to the user agent:

Response.Headers["Content-Type"] = contentType;
Response.Headers["Content-Length"] = contentLength;
if (Request.QueryString["dl"] == "1")
Response.Headers["Content-Disposition"] = "attachment; filename=" + fileInfo.Name;

To be more exact, the action method returns new EmptyResult() after the Response.TransmitFile() call. This works exactly as intended without the Response.Filter modification.

In this situation, the response entity reaches the user agent garbled and unintelligible. FireFox's Poster addon shows empty entities or jumbled entities coming back.
