C# - WebClient.DownloadString() Not Producing Exact HTML

May 20, 2010

So here's the deal. I'm creating a spider bot for a website that scans all the product pages and records the product data. I'm using C# and the WebClient library to download the HTML string. The site I'm crawling must be specially made because the HTML that is received from WebClient.DownloadString() is different than the HTML that I get when I view the source of the HTML when visiting it on a browser. This seems intentional because the only info I can't get is the price.

C# WebClient.DownloadString() Returns String With Perculiar Characters?

Jan 17, 2011

I have an issue with some content that we are downloading from the web for a screen scraping tool that I am building.in the code below, the string returned from the web client download string method returns some odd characters for the source download for a few (not all) web sites.I have recently added http headers as below. Previously the same code was called without the headers to the same effect. I have not tried variations on the 'Accept-Charset' header, I don't know much about text encoding other than the basics.The charachters, or character sequences that I refer to are:


These characters are not seen when you use "view source" in a web browser. What could be causing this and how can I rectify the problem?

string urlData = String.Empty;
WebClient wc = new WebClient();
// Add headers to impersonate a web browser. Some web sites
// will not respond correctly without these headers
wc.Headers.Add("User-Agent", "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-GB; rv: Gecko/20101026 Firefox/3.6.12");
wc.Headers.Add("Accept", "*/*");
wc.Headers.Add("Accept-Language", "en-gb,en;q=0.5");
wc.Headers.Add("Accept-Charset", "ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7");
urlData = wc.DownloadString(uri);

Accessing The Exact Data Sent Using WebClient.UploadData On The Server?

Jul 16, 2010

I'm sending a large text string in the form of a byte array using the WebClient.UploadData method to a web site but I'm not sure exactly where to retrieve that data from on the server. I've read posts that say it is in the request object which I already know but how exactly do I retrieve the specific byte array I sent like in the following c# pseudo code:

byte[] dataSent = request.GettheByteArrayISentFromWebClientUploadDataMethod;

I understand that it may not be as simple as this and that I may need to do some other processing but can anyone post a code snippet that shows how I can get at the byte array that was sent?

Linq To DataTable Not Producing Distinct Values?

Oct 19, 2010

I have a datatable which has been dynamically generated from FoxPro tables using a UNION Select statement. e.g.


This produces a datatable with about 100 rows, each containing many fields, one of which is c_olor. From this datatable, I would like to select the distinct colors and then output in a dropdown.

I have a public class Color which just has one property which I can then use as the DataTextField and DataValueField for the dropdownlist


However this never results in the distinct colors.

I have searched and searched for what I am looking for, and this seems to be one of the methods to produce a distinct set of results, but this and the others do not work.

My reasoning behind getting the colors this way, is that I need to get various other distinct values from the same UNION SELECT datasource, so would just do one DB call, cache the results, and then just used this cached datasource to retrieve all my distinct values.

C# - Producing A Form From An Overlay From Reporting Services Rdlc Reports

May 25, 2010

I am not sure what you call it in other technologies, on the IBM i (or iSeries) we call it overlays. The overlay is an image of a form that is stored on the server then a program generates the form with fields from the database so you can eliminate preprinted forms.

I had a problem last year with the method I was trying at the time. It was a rush job at the time to be revisited at a later point. The work-around at the time was to export to PDF. So now it is "later" and once again is a rush (imagine that). This is all done through a web-based interface.

So how do you generate forms from something that was once a preprinted form? What method do you recommend? This is a legal form and must be filled out a certain way and can have many in a batch (up to 50 or so). I would prefer to not have them print one page at a time.

Get The Exact Raw URL In IIS 7.0 Integrated Mode .NET 4.0

Nov 1, 2010

After some changes in web.config now IIS allows characters like ":" in URL but it makes some modifications. For example:

http://localhost/a///b => http://localhost/a/b (remove all slashes but one)
http://localhost/a => http://localhost/a/b (changes backslash with slash)
I want URL string from within a HttpHandler (I use Request.RawUrl) as it is without any change.

Forms Data Controls :: Datagrid View Control Producing Duplicate Data Results When Data Is Cached?

Oct 10, 2010

I have a datagridview control that I'm using to display cache data to the end used on a web form. The issue that I'm having is that every time I re-run the application, and the cache data is re-generated... it loads duplicate data that's being displayed to the end user. I can't seem to figure out how to keep this from happening.

What I would like to have happen is that only unique data rows be returned and cached for the end user. Unless there are new data rows on the database that needs to be included in the cache data results...the previous data results should not be duplicated. I've tried to change a few properties on the datagridview control, but nothing seem to keep this from happening.
