Web Forms :: HtmlEncode() And HtmlDecode() Not Working Correctly?

Dec 20, 2010

I have a url which I wish to encode that contains a couple of encrypted querystring parameters:

[URL]

I've been asked by a client I'm working with to html encode this url. I've used HttpUtility.HtmlEncode() to do this. This returned the following:

[URL]

This appears to be correct as the '&' has been replaced with '&'. However a problem arises when I try to use HttpUtility.HtmlDecode() on this new value as I get the following returned:

[URL]

What appears to have occurred is the '&' has had the 'amp' removed and the ';' has been html encoded (I checked the value of '%3b' and it corresponds with the html encoded value of a semi-colon). I'm not sure why this is happening?

I realise I could manually do a .Replace("%3b", "") as a temporary fix but I can't see this being a good long-term solution.

C# - HTMLencode HTMLdecode?

Apr 16, 2010

I have a text area and I want to store the text entered by user in database with html formatting like paragraph break, numbered list. I am using HTMLencode and HTMLdecode for this.Sample of my code is like this:

string str1 = Server.HtmlEncode(TextBox1.Text);
Response.Write(Server.HtmlDecode(str1));

If user entered text with 2 paragraphs, str1 shows characters between paragraphs. but when it writes it to screen, just append 2nd paragraph with 1st. While I'm decoding it, why doesn't it print 2 paragraphs?

Security :: Mitigate The XSS / HTMLEncode And HTMLDecode?

Oct 6, 2010

Trying to protect against XSS on a CMS I'm working and I therefore encode all necessary client input but on retrieval from DB, I'm getting all these funny HTML characters displayed on the HTML Page as a result of the encoding.

I'm considering appending a decode on retrieval but I'm wondering what the point of the inital encoding is if I decode eventually.

Please how do I effectively mitigate the XSS issue using the encode/decode avenue.

Web Forms :: File Upload Not Working Correctly?

Apr 1, 2010

I have a simple file input field that utilizes a File.Copy routine to move the file from the local store to the server. This part of the application works fine in staging but in production I had to establish a work around in order to get it to work. I have the users do a Save As on the file they want to upload and then slightly change the name of the file and then it will upload. I do not have to do this in staging with the same file in order for it to work. I am racking my brain as to whether this is a permissions issue or code issue or what.

Web Forms :: Master Page Properties Not Working Correctly?

Feb 3, 2010

In my default.aspx I have;

<%@ Page Title="" Language="VB" MasterPageFile="~/masterpage.master" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="_Default" AspCompat="true" %>
<% @ MasterType VirtualPath ="~/masterpage.master" %>

I have setup properties, for example;

Private _theskin As String
Public Property theskin() As String
Get
Return _theskin
End Get
Set(ByVal value As String)
_theskin = String.Empty
End Set
End Property

I was then expecting to be able to access these properties from the default.aspx.vb page in this way;

If Master.theskin = foo Then
do things
End if

In the default.aspx.vb the code is highlighted with blue underline and says;

theskin is not a member of system.Web.Ui.Masterpage

Am I making an error somewhere along the line? Do I need to do more to be able to expose the properties to default.aspx.vb?

Web Forms :: How To Get AutoPostBack Working Correctly With User Control

Jun 8, 2010

I have an AJAX enabled ASP.Net 3.5 app in which I have:

A Master PageA Web Content PageA User ControlMore precisely, there's a Placeholder control in the Web Content Page into which one of many User Controls are loaded (one at a time or none at all).

The basic User Control I'm working with has a bunch of Labels and one DropDown ListBox. The latter control is a date selector - ie. June 2010, May 2010, April 2010, etc. When the user changes the date, since AutoPostBack = true for the control, a PostBack occurs. But when this happens, the User Control disappears!

All I want is for a partial postback to occur so that I can use the new date to repopulate the various Label controls. I even put the Placerholder control in its own UpdatePanel but this didn't resolve anything - the User Control still disappeared.

Web Forms :: Textbox In The Form But Text_changed Not Working Correctly?

Oct 22, 2010

I got a textbox in my form and I want to when a user start typing in the textbox the listbox below the textbox will select the item that starts with that string

for example, it i type I

than in myserver side code will call that SearchString method which will go through that listbox and do the rest...

protected void CountryTxt_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
string s = CountryTxt.Text;
SearchString(s);
}

the problem is it only stops in the textchanged after I press the enter key; it doesn't seem to work just by typing the characters in the textbox...

<asp:TextBox ID="MachineTxt"
runat="server" Width="42px"
ontextchanged="CountryTxt_TextChanged" AutoPostBack="True"> </asp:TextBox>

Forms Data Controls :: Formview Button Visibility Not Working Correctly?

Apr 17, 2010

I have a formview that displays user info from a dropdownlist. One account may have many users, but one account Primary. I am trying to disable the Edit/Delete button in the formview if the selected ID is the account primary. The problem I get is this.

Step 1: page_load - the primary user is displayed by default, but the delete button is enabled - not right

Step 2: I use the dropdownlist to select another user (not the primary) - everything's fine

Step 3: I then select the Primary User, the Delete Button is disabled - perfect

Step 4: select another user, delete button still disabled - Not right.

[Code]....

1. As you can see my sqlSelect Parameters are bound to the DropDownList.SelectedValue, but is t seems like my if statement for comparing selecteduser to varAdminID doesn't work except once.

So to help debug, i added a label control that displays the selected userID, but on page load the label is blank. but it displays the first record on the list anyway. so if this is the reason for not disabling the delete button on page load then why later does it not reable the button when the user is not the primary, and the UserID is displayed on the label and it is not the primary userid?

I am using a nested repeater to display users popsts and replies to the posts. The posts can be two different types, just a comment, or a comment with statistics. To display the stats column, I am building the data in the SQL like:

[Code]....

This displays Ride Time as HH:MM. I am bolding the header (RT) with the <strong> embedded in theSQL. If I bind the result into a gridview, where I can turn the HTML Encode property = false, the RT is bolded. Is there a way to accomplish this in a repeater?

Forms Data Controls :: Using Htmlencode On Detailsview And Gridview?

Feb 1, 2010

We are using gridview to display data and detailsview to show details, update, insert, and delete as needed. I am a bit confused on whether or not htmlencode and htmldecode is needed when storing data from detailsview. Gridviews always use boundfields and I think encoding and decoding is built in. For detailsview we use mostly templatefields (eval(), bind()), some boundfields, and some data is stored in codebehind using e.values[] or e.newvalues[].Here is where I've got the idea:http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.ui.webcontrols.detailsview.itemupdated.aspxIf I use the iteration and htmlencode, detailsview read only mode displays decoded data. However, gridview displays encoded data and of course update mode of detailsview. So, it seems like detailsview using htmlencode and htmldecode somewhat, but I am not clear as to what degree and what would be the best way to handle it.

Web Forms :: Server.HtmlEncode Not Showing Or Decoding When Performing POST

Nov 9, 2010

I am trying to set up a POST from one aspx file to another progromatically. Inside the POST is a String of XML data which i have properly added to Server.HtmlEncode(). For some reason, when I grab it in my logs on the other page, it is showing with 3 question marks. I at first thought it was logging text i left somewhere, but have narrowed it down to a Encoding error of some sort because when i change the encoding it changes the character, and when I just put some text in there, i see it on the other side fine. i have tried UTF 8,UTF32,Unicode,ASCII... Can't seem to find the right combination. Can't find the UTF-16
when I use the Encoding object

Below is my Code:

[Code]....My Sending Debug log has the Extension xml coming out in HTML format correctly before POST. Below is just a piece of it[Code]....

And then on the other side log I get the below

AJAX :: Server.HTMLDecode Works But Modal Popup Doesn't Close

As the title of this post already mentioned, I'm using a modal popup window to edit rows in the gridview. One column in the gridview contains an URL code. When I fire the edit button a popup opens and show the URL in a textbox in this format: [URL]

When I am using the Server.HTMLDecode function, the modal popup doesn't close anymore.

I am using the following code:

[Code]....

The funny thing is, when I change it to: txtURL.Text = row.Cells[3].Text; then I can close the modal popup, but unfortunately it is not decoded.
