C# - How To Show The Size Of Zip At The Client Side While Zippping Large Batch Of Files On Web Server
Nov 8, 2010
When the user selects the list of files from a page and hit's download selected, then a post back happens to server and starts zipping on the server. This works great until we hit the timeout on the page ( which is default to 90 seconds ) and just returns the process to the page even though the backend process is still zipping. Is it possible to show the size of zip file when the file is being zipped instead of waiting till the end to provide the download link?
My requirement is to get the file size in client side. there is no problem in FF but in IE you can't do that unless u r using an activeX object. So we thought of putting it in browser cache and reading the file size from there and when we post it to the server we will be taking it from the cache and send it to the server.
Is there such a thing as an optimum chunk size for processing large files? I have an upload service (WCF) which is used to accept file uploads ranging from several hundred megabytes.
I've experimented with 4KB, 8KB through to 1MB chunk sizes. Bigger chunk sizes is good for performance (faster processing) but it comes at the cost of memory.
So, is there way to work out the optimum chunk size at the moment of uploading files. How would one go about doing such calculations? Would it be a combination of available memory and the client, CPU and network bandwidth which determines the optimum size?
EDIT: Probably should mention that the client app will be in silverlight.
I am creating an intranet application which runs a batch file and create an xml file as result. Which i am using for further processing. My problem is when i am running my application from local machine batch file is running fine and creating xml,but when i am running it through iis nohting is happening,
it meance process.start coudn't start command Prompt.
I am using following code. I have given all permission to iis.
Dim ProcessInfo As Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo ProcessInfo = New Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo("cmd.exe", "/C " + Server.MapPath("~myScript.bat")) Dim Process As New Diagnostics.Process ProcessInfo.CreateNoWindow = False ProcessInfo.UseShellExecute = False
There is some client + server side validation code (the server side code does exactly the same thing and is skipped for brevity)
There are two instances of this control in the page. When running the client side version it hits the wrong one (the version of the control which is disabled). You can see from the generated HTML both are correctly specified. I'm not sure how .NET works out which clientside function to call given they both have the same name.
I have a async file upload control and I am doing client side validation for Image."OnClientuploadstarted" I am doing the client side validation.My validation is working fine but my problem is that the file upload control text box goes green (i.e file is loaded on the server) even if the validation fails which is I dont want.What I want is when the client side validation fails the file does not gets loaded on the server and the Async file upload textbox does not goes green.I have goggled but have not found a suitable solution.
What I'm trying to figure out is how to do this without having to maintain two sets of markup (one that's bound on the client using some form of jQuery templating, and one that's bound on the server using traditional WebForms).
I m using site login Control in my login.ascx file and disaplaying login control in Div so if there is login link in page and i click on that then Login Div will popup which is site login.May i know how can handle error like username or password is incorrect on client side instead server side?
I have to implement the print functionality on aspx page like on click of print image icon user will be able to get the print out of aspx page .aspx page will contain the server controls like textboxes , Gridview etc which one approach will be the best server side or client side printing ?
i can use escape() and unescape() functions by Client side easily, but the problem when i have use escape() method for peice of HTML , then i dont know how to unescape this piece of HTMl By Server Side not By Client Side. how i can unescape (escapped HTML) by server side?
I've got two textboxes running server side and have their visibility turned off. I'm using a couple of ASP.NET controls which require the textboxes to exist. However, I am filling them from the code behind and would not like the user to see this. Can the user turn the visibility on and see the values entered in the text box? I tried using FireBug, and I couldn't seem to select the visibility option in order to edit it. However, I'm quite new to Firebug, so there may be another way? Or does running it server side mean that the client can't ever view the contents of the textbox?
I have a list of items on an ASP.net page. That list is selectable in that whenever the user clicks on one, the page does a postback and the server code stores the index or some unique identifier of the picture in a ViewState property indicating that it is currently selected.
I would like to minimize the load on the server and therefore I would like to store the index or unique identifier representing the image in some way on the client side. The best way I can think to do this is to store said information in a hidden field ), however I had two questions about this before I go crazy:
Is this a security risk in any way, shape or form (i.e., exposing implementation details of the page)? Is there a better/best way to do this that is more industry-standard? Does ASP.net provide a framework to do this that is cleaner than my idea? Seems like this would be a fairly common requirement to me...
in a form i have a buttoin, when click both OnclientClick and postback should happen. on clicking the "Email" button a client side "mailto" tag should do the work and pull a new message window on the client's machine.
whereas, the email addresses should be invoked by the post back. so , when clicking the button the server side post should happen and on return the client side script should be invokded with the values read during post back, and populate all the email addresses.
i need know how to first do a server hit take the values and then execute the client script with those values without using AJAX
