Hello,

I have the following code below.  However, when i try to run it, i get this error:
CS0246: The type or namespace name 'HashTable' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)


Does anyone know why, or how to fix it?

Thanks



<%@ Application Language="C#" debug="true"%>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Security.Principal" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Collections" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Collections.Specialized" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Reflection" %>


<script runat="server">



override void Init()
{
  colRoles = new HashTable();

  string[] arrJaneRoles = new string[]{ "Supervisors", "Engineers" };
  colRoles["yourdomain\jane"] = arrJaneRoles;
  string[] arrGeorgeRoles = new string[]{ "Engineers" };
  colRoles["drew-duvljdm2b3\george"] = arrGeorgeRoles;
}

void WindowsAuthentication_Authenticate( object s, WindowsAuthenticationEventArgs e ) {
      e.User = new GenericPrincipal( e.Identity, colRoles(e.Identity.Name.ToLower()) );
}
   
    void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        // Code that runs on application startup

    }
   
    void Application_End(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        //  Code that runs on application shutdown

    }
       
    void Application_Error(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        // Code that runs when an unhandled error occurs

    }

    void Session_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        // Code that runs when a new session is started

    }

    void Session_End(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        // Code that runs when a session ends.
        // Note: The Session_End event is raised only when the sessionstate mode
        // is set to InProc in the Web.config file. If session mode is set to StateServer
        // or SQLServer, the event is not raised.

    }

Hi,

you code is little wrong,

override void Init()
{
  colRoles = new HashTable();

  string[] arrJaneRoles = new string[]{ "Supervisors", "Engineers" };
  colRoles["yourdomain\jane"] = arrJaneRoles;
  string[] arrGeorgeRoles = new string[]{ "Engineers" };
  colRoles["drew-duvljdm2b3\george"] = arrGeorgeRoles;
}


In this you doesn't declare colRoles ?

first declare variable colRoles as new HashTable than try to initialize it.
also,
  colRoles["yourdomain\jane"] = arrJaneRoles;
will produce error as you first need to add a Key to hashtable colRoles before assigning value to it..

Please read MSDN tutorial or any other, Or Maybe I miss your complete code...

hope that help

Hi,

Thanks for helping me with this.

I will use a simpler version of my code:

<%@ Application language="C#" debug="true" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Security.Principal" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Collections" %>

<script language="C#" runat="server">

HashTable colRoles;

override void Init()
{
  Hashtable colRoles = new HashTable();

  string[] arrJaneRoles = new string[]{ "Supervisors", "Engineers" };
  colRoles["yourdomain\jane"] = arrJaneRoles;
  string[] arrGeorgeRoles = new string[]{ "Engineers" };
  colRoles["drew-duvljdm2b3\george"] = arrGeorgeRoles;
}

void WindowsAuthentication_Authenticate( object s, WindowsAuthenticationEventArgs e ) {
      e.User = new GenericPrincipal( e.Identity, colRoles(e.Identity.Name.ToLower()) );
}

</Script>


I get the sam error.

Hi,

Sorry, But I am Vb.NET programmer in Visual Studio :) so doesn't master this method of coding, Though can you pin point the line in which you are getting error...

Also i still cannot see the colRoles.Add () function call to add new KEY like yourdomain\jane  ....

this error was happening for two reasons.

1) its Hashtable not HashTable  

I also needed this:

void WindowsAuthentication_Authenticate( object s, WindowsAuthenticationEventArgs e ) {
      e.User = new GenericPrincipal( e.Identity, (string[])(colRoles[e.Identity.Name.ToLower()]));
}

thanks for attempting to help guys

Hi,

Its my pleasure ... But I feel sorry that I cannot help you out :)

But Thanks for accepting it, though you can delete the question in this situation.

Though I still wonder how can that be Hashtable than HashTable :) as per ms guideline (maybe I don't know them correctly)
