JavaScript: Cookies


A cookie is a variable that is stored on the user’s computer. You can use Javascript to create and retrieve cookie values.

To create a cookie:


function setCookie(sCookieName, sCookieValue)
{
var oCookieExpiryDate = null;
try
{
oCookieExpiryDate = new Date();
if (oCookieExpiryDate == null)
{
return -1;
}
oExpiryDate.setTime(oCookieExpiryDate.getTime() + (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24 * 30)); //30 days
document.cookie = sCookieName + "=" + sCookieValue + "; path=/" + ((oCookieExpiryDate == null) ? "" : "; expires=" + oCookieExpiryDate.toGMTString());
}
catch(e)
{
}
finally
{
}
}

To get the value of a cookie:


function getCookie (sCookieName)
{
try
{
var sCookieNameEQ = sCookieName + "=";
var oCookiesArray = document.cookie.split(';');
for(var i=0;i < oCookiesArray.length;i++)
{
var oCookieItem = oCookiesArray[i];
while (oCookiesArray.charAt(0)==' ')
{
oCookieItem = oCookieItem.substring(1,oCookieItem.length);
}
if (oCookieItem.indexOf(sCookieNameEQ) == 0)
{
return oCookieItem.substring(sCookieNameEQ.length,oCookieItem.length);
}
}
return null;
}
catch(e)
{
}
finally
{
}
}

ReportViewer Error : Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object


I was getting this error in my ASP.NET application when I try to load a report into the report viewer control. To solve this I used the Reset() method of the report viewer control.



oReportViewer.Reset()
oReportViewer.ProcessingMode = Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ProcessingMode.Remote
oReportViewer.Visible = True
oReportViewer.ServerReport.ReportServerUrl = New System.Uri(sReportServiceURL)
oReportViewer.ServerReport.ReportPath = sReportName
oReportViewer.ShowParameterPrompts = False
oReportViewer.ShowDocumentMapButton = False
oReportViewer.DocumentMapWidth = 0
oReportViewer.ShowDocumentMapButton = False
oReportViewer.ShowFindControls = False
oReportViewer.ServerReport.Refresh()

Programming Languages

What do you use for programming? I mainly use VB.Net, I used and enjoyed C#. And as a web developer I used JavaScript. I remember doing some php long time ago. In the university I used Assembly, Fortran, and VB 6.0

But I only speaks two languages

Updating Select Options using JQuery


So you implemented a webservice that return an ArrayList to update the Select Option.


Public Shared Function UpDateSelectList(ByVal sThemeID As String) As ArrayList


You can use the jQuery $.ajax to call the webservice


$.ajax({
type: "POST",
url: swebserviceURL,
data: oData,
contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
dataType: "json",
success: jsGetArrayListSucess,
failure: function (response)
{
alert("An error was encountered");
}
});


In the callback function you need go through the array list to create an option item and add it to the Select Options


function jsGetArrayListSucess(response)
{
try
{
var DictionaryItems = response.d;
if (DictionaryItems == null || typeof (DictionaryItems) != "object") {
return;

}

var myDropDownList = $get('SelectList');
myDropDownList.options.length = 0;
myDropDownList.options[0] = new Option("Select ", 0);
for (var i = 0; i < DictionaryItems.length; ++i)
{
myDropDownList.options[myDropDownList.options.length] = new Option(DictionaryItems[i].Text, DictionaryItems[i].Value);
}

}
catch (err)
{

}
finally
{

}
}

Using ASP.NET Mobile Forms

I wanted to use the normal ASP.NET Forms stuff in a mobile form.

  • Right click on the web site project and select Add new Item

1

  • Select Mobile Web Form. enter a name for the form and click on Add button

2

  • To use a style sheet & a JavaScript file, I added a DeviceSpecific with SupportJavaScript Filter. this is how the HTML code looks like

3 

  • Now I wanted to created some ASP controls. so I added another DeviceSpecific with isHTML32 Filter. this is how the HTML code looks like

4

 

  • One last thing, in order to make those DeviceSpecific Filters to work you need to add the required keys in the web.config file. this is how this would look like

GridView: Wrong Fields Order

 

I was working on a GridView that is binding to a custom class collection to display its properties. the fields in the GridView were ordered depending on the order of the properties in the Class. everything was working fine. until I moved the code to a different development environment.

In the new development environment the order of the GridView fields was not as expected. after spending a lot of time trying to fix that. I installed the .NET 2.0 service pack 2 and that solved the problem!!!!

You can download the .NET 2.0 SP2 from here

VB.NET Sort Method for a Collection Class


I have a VB.NET collection class EmployeesCollection for an Employee Class that got an Integer Property named Age; I want to create a method (SortByAge) to sort the collection members by Age.

 


This is the EmployeesCollection Class:

 

Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

Public Class EmployeesCollection
Inherits System.Collections.CollectionBase

Public Sub Add(ByVal tblEmployee As Employee)
' Invokes Add method of the List object to add a widget.
List.Add(tblEmployee)
End Sub

Public ReadOnly Property Item(ByVal index As Integer) As Employee
Get
' The appropriate item is retrieved from the List object and
' explicitly cast to the Widget type, then returned to the
' caller.
Return CType(List.Item(index), Employee)
End Get
End Property

End Class
 


To create the SortByAge method I need a SortHelper Class, This helper Class will include a Function called Compare to compare between the Age values of the employees, the SortHelper Class will be part of the EmployeesCollection Class.

 

 
Private Class AgeSortHelper
        Implements IComparer

        Public Function Compare(ByVal x As Object, ByVal y As Object) As Integer _
             Implements System.Collections.IComparer.Compare
            If x.Age > y. Age Then
                Return 1
            End If

            If x. Age < y. Age Then
                Return -1
            End If

            Return 0
        End Function
    End Class

 


Now we need to create the SortByAge method for the EmployeesCollection Class, in this method we will use the AgeSortHelper to sort the Employees.

 

    Public Sub SortByAge()
        Dim sorter As System.Collections.IComparer = New AgeSortHelper()
        InnerList.Sort(sorter)
    End Sub

 

This is the Final EmployeesCollection Class:

 

Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

Public Class EmployeesCollection
    Inherits System.Collections.CollectionBase

    Public Sub Add(ByVal tblEmployee As Employee)
        ' Invokes Add method of the List object to add a widget.
        List.Add(tblEmployee)
    End Sub

    Public ReadOnly Property Item(ByVal index As Integer) As Employee
        Get
            ' The appropriate item is retrieved from the List object and
            ' explicitly cast to the Widget type, then returned to the
            ' caller.
            Return CType(List.Item(index), Employee)
        End Get
    End Property

    Public Sub SortByAge()
        Dim sorter As System.Collections.IComparer = New AgeSortHelper()
        InnerList.Sort(sorter)
End Sub
   
Private Class AgeSortHelper
        Implements IComparer

        Public Function Compare(ByVal x As Object, ByVal y As Object) As Integer _
             Implements System.Collections.IComparer.Compare
            If x.Age > y. Age Then
                Return 1
            End If

            If x. Age < y. Age Then
                Return -1
            End If

            Return 0
        End Function

    End Class
End Class

Firefox 2.0 – InnerHTML issue

Sorry about the long time between posts. Hope to start posting again soon

 

Anyhow,

 

I was working on a web application that is updating the details of a <map> HTML element using the innerHTML, the new innerHTML value is being processed in the server side using AJAX function

 

I was using the following JavaScript function to do that

 

function jvUpdateImageMap(ImageMapHTML) 

{

    try

    {

          document.getElementById(“MyImageMap”).innerHTML= ImageMapHTML;

           

     }

catch(err)

          {

          }

          finally

          {

          }

}

 

That was working fine for all the browser including Firefox 3.0 but not for Firefox 2.0

 

After debugging this I found that for FireFox 3.0 the result of updating the InnerHTML is this

 

  <map id=”MyImageMap” >

          <area SHAPE=”rect” id=”0_30″ usemap=”MyImageMap” Border=”0″ href=”#” COORDS=”538,420,550,408″ />

 </map>

 

 

This is the correct expected result

 

But for FIreFox 2.0 the result was this

 

<map id=”MyImageMap” >

<map id=”MyImageMap” >

          <area SHAPE=”rect” id=”0_30″ usemap=”MyImageMap” Border=”0″ href=”#” COORDS=”538,420,550,408″ />

</map>

</map>

 

 

So to fix this I had to add those lines to the server side function that generate the new <map> HTML code  

If Context.Request.Browser.Browser = “Firefox” Then

       If Context.Request.Browser.MajorVersion = “2” Then

               ImageMapHTML = ImageMapHTML.Replace(“<map id=””MyImageMap”” >”, “”)

                ImageMapHTML = ImageMapHTML.Replace(“</map>”, “”)

        End If

End If

Using PageMethods/WebMethods to update Sessions variable

I created functions for updateing/reading sessions variables using PageMthods and WebMethods, I am using VS2005 (VB.NET):

 

Import the web.services library

  Imports System.Web.Services 

 

This is the VB.NET function for setting the session variables

           <WebMethod()> _

Public Shared Function AjaxSetSession(ByVal SessionValue As String)

                    Try

                             HttpContext.Current.Session(“SessionKey”) = SessionValue

                   Catch ex As Exception

 

                   End Try

          End Function

 To access the session we need to use HttpContext.Current.Session

 

This is the VB.NET function for getting the session variables

       <WebMethod()> _

          Public Shared Function AjaxGetSession() As String

                    Try

                             AjaxGetSession = HttpContext.Current.Session(“SessionKey”)

                    Catch ex As Exception

                             AjaxGetSession = “Error”

                    End Try

    End Function

 

This is the JavaScript Code to set the session variable

 

PageMethods.AjaxSetSession(“PageMethods”,”WebMethods”)

This the JavaScript Code to read the Session Variables

 

PageMethods.AjaxGetSession(JSGetSessionSucess,JSGetSessionFaild);

 

JSGetSessionSucess is a JavaScript function that would be executed if the AjaxGetSession succeeded

 

       function JSGetSessionSucess(value, methodName)

      {

               try

              {

                        alert(value);

                }

catch(err)

               {

               }

               finally

               {

              }

      }

 

JSGetSessionFaild is a JavaScript function that would be executed if the AjaxGetSession failed

        function JSGetSessionFaild (ex, methodName)

      {

               try

              {

                        alert(ex.get_exceptionType());

                }

catch(err)

               {

               }

               finally

               {

              }

      }
