Testing for page load error

2 New Member
I'm trying to writing a javascript function/webpage that is accessed over a local network.

What I want to know is there any way I can test if the server machine (windows box running apache 2) is live before refreshing the page

or to trap an error message that the server timed out etc, while trying to access the page, using javascript.

Basically I want to prevent the page displaying an error message and hanging, but to be able to trap the error and then try again later.

Make an AJAX request and check the status. If you don't get back 200 (OK), then you can deal with each status in the appropriate way. See example (see section on "Does a url exist?").

A web application of mine developed using C# + MS SQL runs fine normally. However when I stress test it with a load testing software (using about 60 simultaneous users) some instances start erroring out. I see two different errors.

Is this...

Hi, I've been searching for solutions to two issues that are undoubtedly common to everybody. The first is how do my team and I adequately perform unit testing. The second is how can I measure a load on my application? In the past, we would write our class and then come up with some logic in a console or win app to test it. I have since found NUnit which seems to be pretty cool. BTW: if anybody has some XSLTs that provide...

Hello, I'm trying to unit test an asp.net application.

NUnit loads the web.config file just fine, and can connect to the database using configuration settings. I can...

Hi; We need to loadtest our ASP.NET app. So two questions: 1) With just one user, it is slow. Especially the first time we hit a page. This is pre-compiled and we use web deploy and then put it on IIS on Win 2003. But even on subsequent page requests, there can be a good 1/4 - 1/2 second before the page comes up. And this is with web browser and server on the same LAN and nothing else happening on either computer. I can't believe...

I am looking for web testing software. Can anyone recommend something, preferably not expensive. It also has to be useful for classic ASP as well as .net. I looked at ANTS, which I liked but it seems to be more for load testing. What I would like is something similar, where you can record a variety of scenarios and play them back to see if the right information is going into databases and looks right on the screen, doesn't throw error etc....

Ok I have created a small testbed site for testing and I am have a problem with the terms Usercontrol, Webcontrol, etc. What I need to do in the long run is have a page using AJAX and having dynamically loaded controls on the page. So what I did was first create a page with two buttons. First button will load a Label control into a placeholder. After execution and clicking the button the label shows in the page.

I have been developing web applications with ASP & Javascript for a long time. I have been using Visual Studio 2003.NET. While VS2003 is okay for intellisense of ASP & Javascript, it's still not that great. One of the cons of ASP & Javascript is that they're both interpreted, which means one has twice the amount of work to do interms of syntax checking & semantic/runtime checking. Another bad thing is that ASP & Javascript doesn't have...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
