URGENT: window.open does not render server-side code when aspx file pulled from a resource file

P: n/a
Here is my situation:

I have an aspx file stored in a resource file. All of the C# code is
written inline via <script runat="server"tags. Let's call this page
B. I also have page A that contains some javascript code that calls
window.open. I pass the resource url of page B to Page A's window.open
call. Page B is then loaded and executed but none of the server-side
code is rendered. If I view the source of the page, the code (and page
declaration) are visible.

How do I get this to render the C# code properly?
Sample code:

Assembly.cs
[assembly: WebResourceAttribute("MyTest.MyFile.aspx", "text/html",
PerformSubstitution = true)]
PageA.aspx (C#)
public string ns = "";

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
ns = Page.ClientScript.GetWebResourceUrl(GetType(),
"MyTest.MyFile.aspx");

}

PageA.aspx (javascript)
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true"
CodeFile="Default2.aspx.cs" Inherits="Default2" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://

{

}
// -->
</script>
</head>
<body>
<input id="Button1" type="button" value="button"
language="javascript" onclick="return Button1_onclick()" />

<script runat="server" type="text/C#">

base.OnLoad(e);
}
</script>

Hi Bob,

have you tried opening Page B by entering its URL? It doesn't make any difference for the server whether you open a page using JavaScript or any other way. I guess your page doesn't work at all. Did you use any of the file extensions recognized by ASP.NET for your page?

HTH,

Axel,

Calling the page directly produces the same output. I am not sure I am
understanding how I would go about addid the .aspx extention to the
resource url as it looks like this:
http://localhost:1169/WebResource.ax...75600008593750

I do, however, think you may be on to something. As a side note, if
you view the source of the page you will see exactly was is specified
(verbatim) under the MyFile.ascx (stored in resource file) section I
posted eairler.

It looks like to me the whole content of an ASPX page is stored inside a
resource ? Is this correct ? A resource just stores some data so the ASP.NET
engine doesn't have any idea that this is actually something you would like
to run (I'm surprised even it lets you serve resx files).

I'm not sure what is the overall goal but the first idea that comes to mind
would be to save this in an ASPX file as usual. Else elaborate on what you
are trying to do in case someone would have a simpler approach to suggest...

Patrice,

You are correct, I am trying to serve up an aspx page that is stored
in a resource file.

What I am trying to accomplish is to allow an aspx page or control to
be displayed in a pop-up window when a user clicks on a hyperlink in a
web page. The page that needs to be displayed could be stored anywhere
on the site and should be easily editable by a novice developer (no
asp.net server controls which require writing the control without a
designer) but the pages should not be accessible to a user by typing
it in the url directly.

I was hoping I could mask this by storing a generic aspx file in a
resource file and pass in say a namespace or something that the
embedded pages c# code would then invoke and render to the page.

Is my methodology wrong? Is there a better or more common approach?

-David

asp.net will not compile an aspx page in a resource, so you approach
will not work. if you just leave it in the dir, asp.net will compile it
before returning the page.

you only trick will be deploying the code if you use a precompiled site.
you will need to compile the site, then add the aspx file to the
compiled site dir (use a custom build step).

Bruce,

I appreciate the response but what you mentioned does not solve my
problem nor does it suggest anything other than placing a static page
on the web site. I also mentioned that the c# code is inline and, to
the best of my knowledge, the page is not compiled until runtime.

Am I not correct about this?

This is correct but the problem is that the resource architecture doesn't
care this is ASPX code. From a resource point of view this is just some
text. So ASP.NET doesn't compile and run this...

I don't really see an obvious way to do this with your requirements. You
could perhaps have a server side page that fetch this resource, then use
System.Net.WebClient to call the page and then return the resulting HTML
while deleting the temporary page hoping yiour requirements really needs
these kind of cumbersome architecture...

Patrice,
You are correct, I am trying to serve up an aspx page that is stored
in a resource file.
What I am trying to accomplish is to allow an aspx page or control to
be displayed in a pop-up window when a user clicks on a hyperlink in a
web page. The page that needs to be displayed could be stored anywhere
on the site and should be easily editable by a novice developer (no
asp.net server controls which require writing the control without a
designer) but the pages should not be accessible to a user by typing
it in the url directly.
I was hoping I could mask this by storing a generic aspx file in a
resource file and pass in say a namespace or something that the
embedded pages c# code would then invoke and render to the page.
Is my methodology wrong? Is there a better or more common approach?

Bruce,

I appreciate the response but what you mentioned does not solve my
problem nor does it suggest anything other than placing a static page
on the web site. I also mentioned that the c# code is inline and, to
the best of my knowledge, the page is not compiled until runtime.

Am I not correct about this?

Is there a way to make ASp.Net render this page as an aspx page
instead of a text file? I was under the impression that since I am
getting a resource and then rendering it in the browser as html
asp.net would parse it all out properly? Maybe the MIME type of text/
html is not correct? If I change it to text/aspx then it prompts me to
download the .axd resource file

Is there perhaps a better way to accomplish what I want to do?

Hi Bob,

can you please be a bit more precise on what you're planning to do? I don't get the picture from what you've wrote.

Here's my comments on what I understood from your text:
What I am trying to accomplish is to allow an aspx page or control to
be displayed in a pop-up window when a user clicks on a hyperlink in a
web page.

= JavaScript, no ASP.NET magic.

The page that needs to be displayed could be stored anywhere
on the site

= ... like any .aspx page does ...

and should be easily editable by a novice developer
= ... again like any .aspx page does. ASP.NET is no more difficult to author than HTML.

(no asp.net server controls which require writing the control without
a designer)

= I guess, you mean "with a designer". In fact a designer is not required for ASP.NET. Designer feature is just a nifty service provided by Visual Studio.

but the pages should not be accessible to a user by typing it in the url directly.
= ... like any .aspx page does ...

I was hoping I could mask this by storing a generic aspx file in a resource file and pass in say a namespace or something that the embedded pages c# code would then invoke and render to the page. Is my methodology wrong? Is there a better or more common approach?
= Well, it depends. If you want others to dynamically add code to pages you've written, you might want to:

* Create a public interface allowing other users to implement it
in their classes.

* give public read/write access to the App_Code directory so
others may add new classes to that directory

* Use the interface definition mentioned above into your aspx file
and use Reflection to create the newly created classes from the
App_Code directory.

* Add a URL parameter to the page to be able to provide the class
name to Reflection.
HTH,
Axel

Oops... Didn't read the "not".

Page content MUST be accessible by a URL. In fact, there's no way to call ANY content in any other way. Even your .axd call is a valid URL. Anyone can call it with no problem. The file extension doesn't make any difference.
Except for the server, switching on ASP.NET processing only for certain file extensions. But this doesn't affect the client in any way.

IMO no. This information is for the client. Im' not sure how you could tell
the server that it has to do something on the resource before sending back
the result.

Keep in mind that the webresource stuff was done to serve "raw" content.

Patrice,

Thanks for the help. I guess I need to find a better way of doing
this. I have been expereimenting with creating a new Page object from
scratch. What does everyone think of this? Mabye I should try
something else? Only problem I found with this way is that I do not
have request or response objects to do a server.transfer from. I can
probably solve my problem if I could just render the contents of some
controls behind the scenes (against a valid page model) and then send
the render HTML content to the page directly.

Any thoughts?

P: n/a
Random thoughts as I'm not sure about the details of your requirements...

First of all I would not let place them pages wherever they want on the
server (to get something better manageable).

You could for example :
- create them a working directory (possibly as a GUID)
- the real pages could perhaps be stored there using also a GUID for their
name so that direct access is made difficult if not impossible, pages are
uplaoded using your own interface
- a rewriting URL module could expose those pages under a friendly name of
their choice (i.e. they don't know their real location). This module could
prevent direct access (if I remember you wanted them not being able to using
a link to their pages unless in a particular context, not sure how you
would know you are in an appropriate context ?).

A still higher level view could perhaps help as you seem to have quite
unusual requirements. Also I believe I saw once a sample that uses VS.NET to
let third party customize a web application (if this is what you are doing)
exposing an object model allowing to hook up into events.

It could be also something like Gadgets or WebParts ?

Good luck.

Patrice,
You are correct, I am trying to serve up an aspx page that is stored
in a resource file.
What I am trying to accomplish is to allow an aspx page or control
to
be displayed in a pop-up window when a user clicks on a hyperlink in
a
web page. The page that needs to be displayed could be stored
anywhere
on the site and should be easily editable by a novice developer (no
asp.net server controls which require writing the control without a
designer) but the pages should not be accessible to a user by typing
it in the url directly.
I was hoping I could mask this by storing a generic aspx file in a
resource file and pass in say a namespace or something that the
embedded pages c# code would then invoke and render to the page.
Is my methodology wrong? Is there a better or more common approach?

Bruce,
I appreciate the response but what you mentioned does not solve my
problem nor does it suggest anything other than placing a static page
on the web site. I also mentioned that the c# code is inline and, to
the best of my knowledge, the page is not compiled until runtime.
Am I not correct about this?

Is there a way to make ASp.Net render this page as an aspx page
instead of a text file? I was under the impression that since I am
getting a resource and then rendering it in the browser as html
asp.net would parse it all out properly? Maybe the MIME type of text/
html is not correct? If I change it to text/aspx then it prompts me to
download the .axd resource file

Is there perhaps a better way to accomplish what I want to do?

Patrice,

Thanks for the help. I guess I need to find a better way of doing
this. I have been expereimenting with creating a new Page object from
scratch. What does everyone think of this? Mabye I should try
something else? Only problem I found with this way is that I do not
have request or response objects to do a server.transfer from. I can
probably solve my problem if I could just render the contents of some
controls behind the scenes (against a valid page model) and then send
the render HTML content to the page directly.

Any thoughts?
