Web Forms :: Force IE8 To Render In Standard Mode?
Mar 5, 2010
We are developing a web application that will be used exclusively on intranets. We are designing the site to work on IE8 and have come across an issue where IE7 mode (or compatibility mode) really screw everything around. Is there a way to force IE8 to display in IE8 mode and not allow the user to override this?I have tried using the following:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN">
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" >
I was assigned a bug saying that some page elements don't work on IE8 Quirks mode at all, and I need to fix them. The point is that I believe our pages will always be rendered in Standard mode, because we specify DOCTYPE at the beginning of every page (via master page). I'd think it must be some debugging tools changed that during testing.I managed to convice QA to close it as by design, after a brief explanation to her. Now I start to think the question that whether we should have our page work on both Standard and Quirks mode.
I'm looking to have my page in "Edit" mode all the time. to do this I have the following code in the page_load of my page:
This works in all scenarios `except` when I open the catalogue and select "close" instead of adding controls to the page. Selecting close sets the page back into "Display" mode. Is there a better way to do this?
I have a webiste that is going into IE7 Mode in IE8 and I dont want it to beI've tryed adding the meta tag to force it but IE just ignores it when on the server.I've also tried adding it to the Web.config and the root Web.config of the server.Can anyone help as the site does not render correctly under IE7 mode in IE8 and we use IE8
I'm not sure if I'm placing this in the right spot but since it has to do with Entity Framework I put it here. Here's the deal. I have a FormView bound to an EntityDataSource. The FormView is a part of a user control. In design view on the user control, the formview and the entity datasource show up as expected. However once I put the user control in an aspx page, the formview won't show up. The entity datasource shows, but the formview doesn't.
Instead I get this message in design view: "There was an error rendering the control. Value cannot be null. Parameter name: owner" I don't have any parameters in my datasource or formview called owner. Is it talking about the database owner. By way of comparison, I put a SqlDatasource on the page and tied it to a formview. It showed in design view on both the user control and the aspx page. So that led me to believe it has something to do with the formview being bound to the entity datasource.
Would adding "X-UA-Compatible: IE=EmulateIE7" as an http header to trigger IE9 to render in compatibility mode negatively affect performance on the server? I made the change today, adding it, but now some areas of our site are behaving sluggishly, though we did have a large number of changes come in overnight. I know that we can't single out this as the problem, but my boss seems to think it is.
I've been watching a video on Scott Hanselmnn teaching MVC 2 tricks/tips. He mentions how MVC 2 by default uses ASP.NET Web Forms view engine to render the output of the views; he mentions that the web forms view engine is a little slower than it could be for MVC 2 since it generates a control tree and then outputs the HTML to the page (I hope I said that right).
I was wondering what he meant by web forms generating a code tree before outputting the HTML to the page. Does anyone have insight on the view engine of Web forms and the steps of the rendering process works for ASP.NET and MVC2?
gaining mode changing for formview in VB.The problem is that, the current mode im using was ReadOnly, and i want to add some button so thatit could connect to Edit mode in the same formview.Is it necessary to add modechanging and modechanged in the back code?
I got a project when after opening in visual studio 2005 in build mode drop down, only debug mode is shown but release mode not shown.Project builds successfully in debug mode is there a way to enable release mode.
I wanted my local iis running application to connect my database in sql authentication mode rather than windows mode,
but it is showing errors of " Cannot open database "aspnetdb" requested by the login. The login failed. Login failed for user 'DBUser'. ". i also ublocked port from firewall,and allowed remote connection of mssql from sql manager, enabled TCP/IP and named piped protocols from SQL surface config, and with sql manager i also changed server authentication mode to sql from windows. my datastring is <add connectionString="Data Source=PARTHIV-PCSQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=aspnetdb;User ID=******;Password=******/" name="LocalSqlServer" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
i made a user named DBUser in database as well i don't understand where it gone wrong ???
In short, I want to implement a search engine. I pass the search string as a http querystring and my database uses it as a filter in Select. The problem occurs when I enter some non-standard english letters. Let me elaborate: on Main.aspx page, when I click on "Search", a function calls "Main.apsx?search=something". The querystring is passed as a filter to the database which returns values depending on the filter. The database holds correct data at the moment.
After that, I dynamically modify some hyperlinks' url to something like this: hlink[i].NavigateUrl = "Detail.aspx?search=" + base.Request.QueryString["search"] + some integers;. I want users to be able to click on the link to get details on the result. If they click the link, since a new page is now opened, the database has to be refilled (from cache). The same function for filtering the main database is called with a querystring which should be the same as the search string, but somehow it isn't. It looks like something was lost in a conversion or something. If I use standard english letters, everything works fine. I noticed that prior clicking the link the query string had a value like /u0100d for the non-standard letter, but after clicking the link the value had changed to something like /u0ffff. It obviously isn't the same when typing something in the search box and hitting "search", and when putting this search string into NavigateUrl and clicking on it.
I have PayPal Web Payment standard successfully integrated in an ecomerce solution I'm developing. My problem is this, I want to store details of the order being placed before it is sent to PayPal but only if it is sent and not if the just fill in everything in the shopping cart and then leave the page. There are 3 ways I can think of how this might be acheived but I'm not sure how to implement them.
1. Put some code in the page_unload that stores the data fi the page the browser is being transferred to is the paypal site. However I don't a way to determine what the next page is going to be.
2. Submit the the information to PayPal from the code behind. I'm sure this should be possible but I don't know how to do it and haven't managed to find a good articles on it.
have a WebForm with a Form View to insert new items in my database.These items that i will insert also are conected to other many-to-many relations that i also wanna add after my new item is inserted.For Example: With the classic Autors-Books data base (autors with many books each books with many autors), i want a FormView that for defoult enter to the InsertMode where you will add a new Autor with name, age, style, etc... After you insert this new autor i wanna show the details of this autor but also his books (when new this table will be empty) and below that table i want a button that says "Add a new book to this autor"
I always create a folder "App_Pages" and use it ot put my aspx pages but I see with VS 2010 that it has several default folders created when adding a page. Which one is most applicable. Is it App_LocalResource? I assume that "App_Code" is where custom classes go.
I need to add multiple gridviews to a page displaying different data but of the same structure - the data has a lot of columns and I need it formatting quite tightly - is there a way of creating a template gridview in design mode and then somehow using that however many time I need to in the page as a template.
I wrote my own custom ResourceProvider in order to move localization management to DB instead using standard resx files.The provider works fine, but now (after having bought a third part components for UI) I need to implement a fallback to standard ASP.NET localization mechanism from my own provider since these controls has been already localized from the author and are packaged with resx files.So what I would like to do, is keep the actual mechanism for all the resources except for the resoucers related to this controls.I'm able to distinct when a resource is belong to external components, so what I need is how to invoke for this resource the standard location management.
