http handlers and web form post backs

Wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction for my problem?

I have a http handler that captures .html requests and transfers them all to a default.aspx which then dynamically loads in all the web and user controls required for that web form.
My problem is if I request, for example, contact.html it will load my contact form correctly but when I submit my contact form the action points to default.aspx. So when I submit it the user sees default.aspx in the address bar instead of the intended contact.html.
I either need to change my http handler, modify the action of my server side form or just make the URI in the address bar seem as if it is still the same page without losing any of the functionality of my controls.

I remember seeing a thread that said you have to rewrite the URL twice.  Once to get the correct page loaded and then once back to get the form's action correct.

Create your own form class by  inheriting  System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlForm and remove action attribute.  

This links has sample code.

I found that thread after searching these forums here Could not for the life of me get it to work. Kept telling me I was trying an illegal post request, and because I was playing about with the context so much it was getting the urls really muddled.

Thanks for both your help anyways. I'm gonna try removing and replacing the action attribute now.

Http handlers and Http modules
Hi,  What are some of the best and common scenarios where Http handlers and Http modules can be usefully used? Sandyhttp://www.thequinn.infohttp://www.sksdataservices.com Hi, ASP.NET uses the handlers for processing aspx, asmx and other files. How can you use it? Well let us say if you want to create a file with a new extension, you will need to write a handler for it. Moreover they are the earliest point where you can access requests. Moreover they being portable makes them all the more powerful. ASP.NET uses modules for services like session manage...

Web Handler or HTTP handler to serve audio files to media player?? please help.
Hello I am using a web handler for audio files "WavHandler.ashx?Path=\\bla bla bla\bla\file.wav". However Media Player (I tried version 10 and 11) freezes if the file is played a few times consequentially. No error message appears client side, the explorer window would need to be killed, the same happens if using the stand alone version of the player. No error message is thrown server side by the handler either. The normal amount of bytes is sent over each time Do you know why this could be? do u think that I should try to use an asyncronous HTTP Handler instead? I have no ...

HTTP Handlers and Modules confusion
 I'm not really a novice as I understand some advanced concepts and I have experience in delivering fairly complex web apps with ASP.NET, but in my previous experience, I haven't worked with HTTP Handlers and Modules much. I know that each page requested will have to pass the HTTP Modules, or rather, the HTTP modules intercept each page request, so my understanding is, this would be the ideal way to go about having a module which can record page hits. However, what is the purpose of an application-wide event in global.asax? Surely, this could achieve the same purpose?&...

Difference in HTTP Module and Handler
Hi, I understand the basics of a HTTP Module and a HTTP Handler, but can someone tell me when I should use a HTTP Handler rather than a HTTP Module, with examples? Thanks! HttpModules represent code that is in play for all page requests while an HttpHandler is more like a single page.  For example, if you wanted to implement compression for all your pages, you could use an HttpModule - that module could be used to compress ALL pages. Of it you wanted to serve up a dynamic image from a database, you could use an HttpHandler - that handler could serve up an image for a si...

Passing form values on in HTTP Handler
Hi I'm working on a project where a number of legacy web applications will be rewritten and run within a SharePoint portal.  However there's not enough time to rewrite all of them so we're looking to expose certain web apps to look like they are running from the SharePoint portal using a http handler to act as a proxy. I have got the majority of this working.  The user visits a page on the portal which has an IFRAME pointing to my proxy web application.  Any requests for pages here are picked up by my http handler and in the code I create a web request to retriev...

And the problem is that when you right click a picture and selects save picture as the filename is handler.ashx.. Is there any way to change this so that the filename would be something else? --Rune Not that I am aware of, this is because the img src is the url to the handler.ashx.  What you could do is create a downloadPhoto.ashx that will write the photo to the browser so you can make up any file name you like.  You would simply pass the photo id to this handler...

Implementing .Net Form into an web form, can this be done
I am new here, but have been searching for a while, and may not have the correct lingo to find what I am looking for.  I am tasked with implementing a .exe application that was writen vb6 then converted to .net into a new website my team is developing. The idea is to put each of the 3 different forms in this .exe application of 3 different .aspx pages. I have attempted multiple things to get this into the page and even started to just rewrite it as an web form, but even then I can't reuse any of the code since the System.Web.UI.Page doesn't inherit the same functions and object of the System.Windows.Forms.Form, I have even tried having the page Inherit System.Windows.Forms.Form, and the page shows but none of the data actually populates, it just looks like a blank form...   So the question is, how do I find out more information about implementing either the full application or at least the functionality? I am not looking for someone to do the work for me, I just need to find a good starting point since I want to learn if this is possible and how to do it. Again I may not be up on all the lingo, so even giving search terms would be helpful.   Thanks, PadawangeekPadawangeekAlways learning...

Form problem in http handler with dynamic control
Hi, I've already posted about this problem but I think I didn't explain it very well. Let me try and clarify it. I have written a cms that lets users create pages. These pages are stored in a database along with a path they want to give it. eg products/overview.aspa. The .aspa extension is enforced in the cms because all requests to .aspa files are handled by my PageHandler class. This looks up the path in the db and loads the appropriate user controls to display the page. This works well, but my problem is that I want to have a server-side form tag so I can do postbacks from some o...

2 http posts, one web form?
 Hi, A general question about http posts.  Can we have one form post to two different places? I have a page I'd like to post to an asp script that we have online.  Since .net pages can't have more than one set of form tags on them, this page creates an html page "on the fly" and posts IT to our central form-handling asp page, which determines the site it's from, and responds accordingly. In this new case, I want to render an html page and post it, but I would like to post some of the data to a second different url. So, the question is, can we make this "on the fly" html page with 2 forms on it (named form 1 and form 2) and send form 1's info to one place, and form 2's info to the other?

Wrong event handler is called on post-back

BOTH DropDownList controls have AutoPostBack set to true.When the second, dynamic DropDownList control has its selected item change, it should be calling its own OnSelectedIndexChanged event handler, but instead the OnSelectedIndexChanged event handler for the first DropDownList is called.Any idea what is going on? Here is the aspx: <asp:DropDownList ID="advisorSearchTopicSelect" ...

The Page element in VS2005 has a MaintainScrollPositionOnPostback property for this.  Otherwise you will have to write some Javascript to get the current scroll position, save it (say) to a hidden field on the page with a runat=server attribute, then on Javascript onload, scroll to the new position.  Do a Google on "Javascript" and "S...

HTTP Handler/Module to Inject PreProcessing Code?
Hello All, I have a situation where I am creating an ASP.NET web site, but I have a section of the site that contains HTML files with classic ASP includes for headers and footers. I can't change this since this content is coming from a legacy content management system. I'm hoping to use an HTTP Handler/Module to intercept the code before it gets processed so that I can strip out the includes to the old header & footer and replace it with: <%@ Page language="c#" Inherits="BasePage" %> I set all ASPX pages for the rest of the site to derive from a master template. What I attempted to do is create a custom module and hook it into the BeginRequest event. I tried to wirte the above line of code using a context.Response.Write(). It didn't work, I could see the code in my page when I viewed source, but it wasn't executed. At this point, I think that the "Object Load" state of the ASP.NET Page Life Cycle has already occurred so the page was already "compiled". Does anyone have any suggestions for me? I was thinking about using a filter in my module, but at this point I think the data has already been processed. Also, could I add my master template logic into the module to load a control? What would the code look like for that? I attempted that, but I kept getting compilation errors, probably due to my lack of understanding in implementing user controls in a .cs file. Thanks, AC Do you h...
