Send Multiple InMemory Attachments Using FileUpload Controls
I wanted to give users an ability to send multiple attachments from the web application. I did not want anything fancy, just a few FileUpload controls on the page and then send the email. So I dropped five FileUpload controls on the web page and created a function to send email with multiple attachments. Here’s the code: public static void SendMail(string fromAddress, string toAddress, string subject, string body, HttpFileCollection fileCollection) { // CREATE THE MailMessage OBJECT MailMessage mail ......

Procedure or function has too many arguments specified
This error took me a while to figure out. I was using SqlDataSource with stored procedures for SELECT and UPDATE commands. The SELECT worked fine. Then I added UPDATE command and while trying to update, I would get this error: "Procedure of function has too many arguments specified" Apparently, good guys at .NET decided it is necessary to send SELECT parameters with the UPDATE command as well. So when I was sending the required parameters to the UPDATE sp, in reality, it was also getting my SELECT ......

asp:Menu rendering problems in IE8, Safari and Chrome
I was caught off-gaurd today when a user of one my applications reported that the asp:Menu was not rendering properly in her IE browser. I checked the version and it was IE8. I changed the application to compatibility view and the menu rendered just fine. Since I cannot tell each and every user to view the app in compatibility view when in IE8, i started digging for solutions. It looked like a z-index problem to start with. The problem was that since the new IE8 is moving closer to standards, the ......

There are two ways to disable the CSS Friendly Adapters in ASP.NET: 1.

Return SqlDataReader from a method
.NET's SqlDataReader class is based on an active connection to the database. This means that while the SqlDataReader is in use, the SqlConnection that is serving the SqlDataReader is open and cannot be used anywhere else. That is why, returning an SqlDataReader from a method is not stright forward like returning a DataTable or a DataSet. To read more about SqlDataReader, please see SqlDataReader class. Though it is not straight forward, it is very simple. Here's a piece of code that would let you ......

Hyperlink to Windows Remote Desktop (RDP) session using ASP.NET
Hyperlink to Remote Desktop (RDP) session: I had some IP addresses on a web page which would be used internally by our company users and wanted to display them as hyperlinks. When a user clicks an IP address, a Windows RDP session should start. The simplest way I could think of was to transfer an RDP file to the client, which she can open or save via regular HTTP File Transfer. An RDP file can be edited by a simple text editor. If you open an RDP file with notepad, you will see all the settings. ......
