Web Forms :: Free Text Box With In A Master Page.error/ Form Value Was Detected From The Client
Apr 9, 2010
When Iuse FTB in a normal web form I am having no issues. However when I create a master page then a web form that uses that master page I get the following error when pulling text from the FTB control
A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client (ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_FreeTextBox1="<b>My TEXT</b>")
I get this error only when it uses html tags and only when its in a form that uses a master page.
I am writing a database to store code extracts which will make our life easier at work, I have a text box which retrieves HTML characters, I have no problems in displaying them, however if I click the edit button to amend text I get the error "A potentially danger Request.Form value was detected from the client (txtCodeExtract=" etc").
I have added ValidateRequest="False" to the main form however, when I now click the edit button the textbox wipes out all the text.
I have tried using the Server.HTMLEncode(txtCodeExtracts.Text); or Decode and HttpUtility.HTMLEncode or Decode but the textbox still clears. This is a web app using Visual Studio 2008
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.
I have one asp.net application, which has some problems while i am entering the special characters such as ": &#, " in the search box. If i enter this text in search box, i got the exception like this. A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client (txtValue=": &#, ").
then i searched on the net, i got one general solution for this that to set the validaterequest to false. But no changes has been made on my application.
I am using FTB on my aspx page. is there any way I can have Toggle Full screen feature in FTB, is this feature availble in FTB? it is available on TinyMCE, but I don't want to switch to TinyMCE since I am already using FTB in most of the pages in my application.
I know the < and > characters will cause this error, but what other characters/inputs will cause this error?
I'm testing for this error in the Global.asax, and reridrecting to an error page where I want to list all possible values which cause this error, so the user can go back to their page and get rid of them.
I've done some googling, but all I see so far are the < and > characters...surely there are more out there.
I have this code , to redirect user when an error is detect on a page, and to notify the admin
vb Code: Protected Sub Page_Error(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Error REPORT IF ERROR DETECTED Dim a As New errorhandler¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† a.reporterror(Page.Title.ToString & " " & Request.Url.Host.ToString, Server.GetLastError.ToString) End Sub
then under another button I have this try and catch , i wud like to show the user there is an error on the date input format.
Where is the event! Now that I have the path to the file in the textbox of the input type, I want to load each line of this file into a textbox that is able to handle multiline text. I don't want the file to be uploaded to the website. I just want to contents of the file read and placed in a textbox all with one click on the browse button.
Following is the structure of the pages in application
Suppose the user is on ..../paycheck.aspx which is the content page. But when ...../paycheck.aspx loads, "lnkDynamic" properties "Text and PostBackUrl" must be set. Which events should be handled .....
I have a master page with a form on it. It's a people search form. When the user clicks on the search button it goes to the search results page that uses the same master page. With the code below I get the info off the master of the current page. Howdo I grab that info from the first page? Here's the code:
Imports System Imports System.Web.UI Imports System.Web.UI.WebControls Partial Class mstrIntranet Inherits System.Web.UI.MasterPage Public Property mSearchName() Get Return txtSearchName.tex End Get Set(ByVal value) txtSearchName.text = value End Set End Property
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load txtSearchName.Text = "People Search" End Sub End Class
Search Results Code Behind page:
Partial Class PeopleSearch2 Inherits System.Web.UI.Page Public SearchName As String
Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load Dim mpTextbox As TextBox mpTextbox = CType(Master.FindControl("txtSearchName"), TextBox) SearchName = mpTextbox.Text

On a windows 2008 web server, I get the following error whenever posting a form containing html tags in textboxes:

This is a common error and you fix it by either doing Page ValidateRequest = false or in the web.config with pages validaterequest = false. However, on this specific server, it completely ignores the validaterequest = false and throws this exception anyway. Has anyone seen this behavior before and know what else I can do to prevent this error? I've seen it in 2 web apps now on the same server, it's really weird.
I have a textbox and a button, and I trying to give the user a search option in the master page. The onClick event of my button is fine, but the textbox.Text property is always empty. I googled a little and fine many articles about accessing the Master from the ContentHolder, but I believe its no my case...
Also I added the following line in the web.config but still having the issue.
<httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" />

I have a function that loops through the control on my page to set attributes. This works fine, except that I only want the attributes to bet set on the controls on the content page, and not on the master page. Is it possible to check where the control resides? Or to only loop through controls on the content page?
i have a master page with a tree view. i need to add a query string to the treeview and that value is on the page that uses the master page. all i want is for the treeview to navigate to the right page passing the clientID. so instead of this:
I have a form that a user fills out and can input html or other text into a textarea. I have the validaterequest attribute set to false on the page. However, when I submit the form with any html characters it bombs saying that it detected the potentially dangerous request field and to make validaterequest=false. I've already done this so I'm not sure why it's not working. I've done this many times before and never had this problem. Anyone run into this before and if so, is there a fix? I don't want to update my web.config and apply it site wide.
