I realise there are many questions that ask a very similar thing but I still am yet to find a solution to this problem!

I have a file on a NAS drive that I am using Microsoft's ODBC driver for files to read. This works when hosted on my local machine but when hosted on the server it does not work and I get the following error:

ERROR [HY024] [Microsoft][ODBC Text Driver] '(unknown)' is not a valid path.

I have tried to set the app pool identity to be a user that can access the file but that seems to do nothing, I have mapped the NAS drive to a drive letter on the server which also does nothing.

Is there an easy solution around this? I have read that maybe I might be able to add the server to the permission list for the file (It is a lengthy process getting permissions setup where I work so I'd like to know if this is a viable shot before requesting it).

i need your help..i'm new in vb.net programming..please help me..

i met a problem where it happens when i login to my account after i fill field name, username, password ,and also captcha..But after do that, something went wrong..it's error which is said that object reference not set to an object instance..

In previous asp.net versions, ASP.net session state supports several different storage options for session data, we can specify mode we want by setting mode attribute of sessionState element in web.config. In ASP.Net 5, how can we set mode StateServer for session storage and where we can add a custom SessionIDManager implementation to?

In pages that don't use master page (and the master page itself, well, that means all pages!) the form section is being run at server

<form id="form1" runat="server">

I have a asp.net register view and I have used bootstrap to get a responsive page but when I run the page in a browser it looks the same a sit did before I added the bootstrap classes. I have tried using the same classes in an asp.net webform and it works fine. the code for my view is bellow:

I have the following code in my Razor view

    @Html.LabelFor(t=>t.Name)
    @Html.LabelFor(t=>t.Name)

    @if (true)
    {
        @Html.LabelFor(t => t.Name)
        @Html.LabelFor(t => t.Name)
    }

The two blocks of code generate different HTML.

    <label for="Name">Name</label>
    <label for="Name">Name</label>

<label for="Name">Name</label><label for="Name">Name</label>

This is also displayed differently (in Chrome and IE), one has a gap between the two elements, one does not:

Rendered HTML

Is this a bug in Razor/MVC? Or should I not be using @Html helpers within if blocks?

Changing to the following makes them both display the same but is not ideal.

    @Html.LabelFor(t=>t.Name)
    @Html.LabelFor(t=>t.Name)

    @if (true)
    {
        @Html.LabelFor(t => t.Name)@Html.Raw("\n")
        @Html.LabelFor(t => t.Name)
    }

I have the following controllers:

  1. Sales
  2. Purchase
  3. Accounts
  4. Hr
  5. Settings

I need to deploy or publish only the sales and the purchase controllers. How do I deploy only those?

How to get entire fileupload[all attributes] when postback is trigerred?

I have a page that allows visiting users to query a database and return information based on zipcode. I need to provide two options, one for showing the information embedded in the page and another option for alternately returning the information as a pdf document.

My current solution is to have one ajax form that returns a PartialViewResult and the other form returns a FileContentResult.

This works; however, it would be cleaner to have a single form with a dropdown indicating whether to show the information embedded in the page or generated as a pdf document. This is how I had it coded when the page was an aspx page, but I have been unable to figure out how to do that using mvc.

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

I'm trying to create an asp.net web application . I have a simple database with 3 tables: projects,bugs and testers. I'm trying to display all bugs which are recorded for a selected project. enter image description here The problem is that I don't know how to display data from IEnumerable bug.

Thank you!:)

I have a list of buttons that represent a folder hierarchy on my db. When clicked I want a Bootstrap popover to appear with icon buttons for adding new folders, removing folders, changing hierarchy, etc. However, AngularJS doesn't work in the popover, causing ng-click and ng-show to no longer work. Here's a button:

<button type="button" id="0" ng-click="selectFolder($event)" class="btn btn-default" data-toggle="popover" data-placement="top" title="Bewerk folder" data-content="@popoverContent">@ViewBag.Title</button>

var popoverContent = "";
popoverContent += "<button type='button' id='newHierarchy' class='btn btn-success' ng-click='addHierarchy = !addHierarchy'>";
popoverContent += new Icon("plus").Html;
popoverContent += "</button>";
popoverContent += "<input type='text' id='newHierarchyName' class='form-control' name='newHierarchyName' ng-show='addHierarchy' />";

I found some similar questions whose answer all involved directives. However, I don't understand how I should implement a directive in my case.

I have never done a POST request via Razor and MVC4. I think i have the core methods and stuff down but i am having difficulty fulfilling an actual POST request.

Here is the Razor View page code...

@model UserJob
@Html.HiddenFor(Model => Model.UserCode)
@Html.DropDownList("jobCode")
<input type="submit" value="Add" class="btn btn-default" />

And the method which i want to fulfil the POST method is.....

[HttpPost]
public ActionResult AddSkill(UserJob model)
{
    db.UserJobs.Add(model);
    db.SaveChanges();
    return RedirectToAction("Jobs", new { UserCode = model.UserCode });
}

I have an ASP.Net MVC website and I want to pass a textbox value from view to controller using URL Action.

Below is my code,

<table class="table table-striped table-bordered table-hover" id="products" width="100%">
   <thead>
       <tr>
          <th>ProductId</th>
          <th>Name</th>
          <th>ShortName</th>
          <th>ProductNamePrefix</th>
          <th>Minimum Count</th>
          <th>Add Product</th>
       </tr>
   </thead>
   <tbody>
      @foreach (var item in Model)
      {
         <tr>
            <td>
               @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.ProductId)
            </td>
            <td>
               @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.Name)
            </td>
            <td>
               @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.ShortName)
            </td>
            <td>
               @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.ProductNamePrefix)
            </td>
            <td>
               @Html.TextBox("MinCount", item.MinimumCount, new {@class = "form-control" + " " + item.ProductId})
            </td>
            <td>
               @if (item.IfExists == true)
               {
                  <div class='isa_success'><i class='fa fa-check'></i></div>
               }
               @if (item.IfExists == false)
               {
                  <a href="@Url.Action("AddProduct", "Home", new { ProductId = item.ProductId, Name = item.Name, ShortName = item.ShortName, ProductNamePrefix= item.ProductNamePrefix, MinimumCount= item.MinimumCount})"><div class='isa_info'><i class='fa fa-plus-circle'></i></div></a>
               }
           </td>
        </tr>

I want to pass the textbox value in url action method to controller. I am creating a custom class based on the id for textbox but I am not able to retrieve it using javascript or jQuery.

razor code
@{string razorVar= "test";}

HTML
<div ng-class="{active:vm.testSelected(@razorVar)}"> ...</div>

angular controller function
vm.testSelected = function(jsVar) { return jsVar== 'test'; }

jsVar is always undefined

Question
What is the correct way to pass this razorVar to my function? (I do not want to use an ng-init)

Can anyone help me correct the issue im having creating a view in MVC. Normally i just use Add/View and it scaffolds a view for me based upon my created method. The only problem is that this time i am creating a method to pass to view and i keep getting this error message

The model item passed into the dictionary is of type 'UserJob', 
but this dictionary requires a model item of type
'System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable`1[UserJob]'. 

The Methods i have written are the following...

public ActionResult AddJob(string userCode)
{
    var jobs = jobsClient.GetAlljobs();
    var alljobsCode = (from s in jobs select s.jobCode).ToList();
    var usersJobs = (from s in db.UserJobs
                               where s.userCode == userCode
                               select s.jobCode).ToList();
    var jobsNeeded = alljobsCode.Except(usersJobs);
    List<UserJobsDTO> list = listBuilder(jobs, jobsNeeded);
    ViewBag.jobCode = new SelectList(list, "jobCode", "jobDescription");
    var model = new UserJob { userCode = userCode };
    return View("AddJob", model);
}

private List<UserJobsDTO> listBuilder(
               jobsService.jobsDTO[] jobs, IEnumerable<string> jobsNeeded)
{
    List<UserJobsDTO> d = new List<UserJobsDTO>();

    var f = jobsNeeded.ToArray();
    var a = jobs.ToArray();

    for (int i = 0; i < f.Length; i++)
    {
        d.Add(new UserJobsDTO()
        {
            jobCode = f.ElementAt(i),
            description = a[i].jobDescription
        });
    }             
        return d;
}

When im debugging all of the required data is being passed to all the correct variable i am declaring, but the view just isnt playing ball. I was under the impression that scaffolding would automatically generate a useable View for me in Razor?? But this method just want play. Can anyone point me in the right direction??

I'm developing an asp.net mvc 5 application and need some help

Suppose the following model :

public class EmployeeMaster
{
    public int Id { get; set; }
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public string F1 { get; set; }
    public string F2 { get; set; }
    public string F3 { get; set; }
    public string F4 { get; set; }
    public string Email { get; set; }
}

At the admin panel, the administrator will set the number of text boxes and their corresponding labels, that are going to saved in the database in another table, For instance : (TextBoxLabel). These variations of text boxes and labels occur for each user's account, that has been assigned a system code. Now, suppose if the administrator wants to assign 2 text box fields and their labels, so, he would simply go to the admin area and inputs it what he desires, now at the user's end (above model), it should simply display 4 textboxes namely (Name, F1, F2 and Email) neglecting the other two, F1 and F2 have their own labels that are to be fetched from database from TextBoxLabel table, that means that when the user submits the form the column F1 and F2 gets populated, and F3 and F4 will have null values.

Now my question is that how do I achieve the above scenario, what could be the simple and the best way to achieve this, an example would be deeply appreciated. Thanks in Advance :)

I have a SelectList that I use to populate the dropdowns in my View, to give a category a score from 1 to 5. There are 7 categories, that can all have a separate score.

I’ve successfully created a view that will display the SelectList as a dropdown for each item, and assign the selected value for the category when I create a new object – but I’m struggling with the corresponding edit view.

I assumed it would be best to reuse the dropdown again, and set the default value to be the value from the database for the applicable category. It doesn’t seem to be possible to set the default value in the view however – the default can only be set when first creating the SelectList.

I created the SelectList as follows

model.ScoreOptionsSelectList = _tl_RangeService.List()
    .Select(s => new SelectListItem
    {
        Text = s.CustSatRange,
        Value = s.CustSatRange
    })
    .ToList();

Where _tl_RangeService.List() is returning a list of items with unique values defining the CustSatRange (for the purposes of this example these numbers fall in the range 1 to 5).

And then I use it in the view as

<td class="@item.LatestScoreStyle">
    @Html.DropDownListFor(
        model => model.Manage_Rating, 
        Model.ScoreOptionsSelectList, 
        null, 
        new { @id = "ddlScores" + @rowIndex, @class = "form-control" })
</td>

Where I am trying to set the default value to be the current Manage_Rating, and so it is Manage_Rating that will be updated when the form is submitted.

This currently renders as below. There will be a number of other categories other than Management that will all use the same SelectList to populate the dropdown. Note the Survey Type is working successfully as it is a SelectList that only applies to a single category.

enter image description here

Is there a way to create a single SelectList to reuse to populate dropdowns, yet set the default value differently for each instance when it is created in the view? Or am I forced to create a new SelectList for each category?

Any suggestions you could provide are appreciated

Edit

So after a full day of head-scratching (hence the question on here), when I was trying to provide further clarification I discovered I'd made a rookie mistake, and not set the Managment_Rating in the first place. D'oh!

Therefore as this was a typo, I'm voting to close this question.

Thanks to those who attempted to assist me with this. Sorry for wasting your time.

I'm following a video tutorial where I'm required to create an empty ASP.NET Web Application with MVC, using Visual Studio 2015, being new to ASP.NET world, I'm following step by step.

I got my project created well, next step adding a View from an existing Controller, I got hit by a messagebox error saying :

Error :
There was an error running the selected code generator: 'Invalid pointer (Exception from HRESULT:0x80004003(E_POINTER))'

I Googled the problem, found similar issues, but none leaded to a clear solution, some similar problems where issued by anterior version of VisualStudio, but as I said none with a clear solution.

To clarify what I experienced, here's what I've done step by step :
