Asp.NET 4.0 Routing with Webforms

Hello,

We are using routing with webforms via asp.net 4.0 and the routing is working great.  Our question though is we can't find anywhere on the web where it addresses the issue of accessing our pages directly still using .aspx

For example, we have a route setup (http://www.xyz.com/account) for the physical page (account.aspx)  The problem is I can go on our site and see the account page using the url http://www.xyz.com/account.aspx

The other issue is that the route contains some other parameters as part of the route itself.  For example..... /account/profile which tells which tab on the account page to display.  Accessing this page with just account.aspx breaks it.

Can we easily deny access to the actual .aspx extensions?  

Thanks. Steve

In the Page.Load you could parse the URL for ".aspx" and redirect to the same URL without the extension.

Look into URL rewriting: http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/02/26/tip-trick-url-rewriting-with-asp-net.aspx

If you read the info I link to it should give you everything you need and then some.

@paulmacd: that is not a bad idea, check for .aspx in the url and if it exists, then redirect to the routed version. and if there are parameters in the route that are missing cause using .aspx, then i guess we could either select a default route version of that page.  or even better, if they use the .aspx, then redirect all these to the pagenotfound.aspx route and not even try to specify correct route since they shouldn't be using the .aspx version.  cool

@rawinnlnx9:  url rewriting is not desirable, it is what has to be used in 3.5 and earlier.  Web routing for 4.0 is a much better solutions for many reasons.  We can't go backwards for this one minor issue.  Thanks though for reply.
