# if DEBUG for asp and html

Need Debug and release for aspx or html.

</head>
    
    <body class =" bodyMain"
    <% #if !DEBUG %>   
        onload="detectIframe();"      
    <% #endif %>
        >
    <form id="form1" runat="server"> ........

AND

<div id="divDebug" 
            <% #if !DEBUG %>   
                hidden ="hidden"
            <% #endif %>
                >    
                   
                <table class="contentTable">.......

Open in new window


I have not been able to get this to work.  I have got this to compile as html but asp: I have not been able to even get it to compile.  I am open to any other way to get some conditional compilation.

Kind Regards
Sam

Hi,

Not really my field, but can you try:

    
    <% #if !DEBUG %>   
        <body class =" bodyMain" onload="detectIframe();">
    <% #else %>
        <body class =" bodyMain">
    <% #endif %>
        

Open in new window


and:


    
    <% #if !DEBUG %>   
       <div id="divDebug" hidden ="hidden">
    <% #else %>
        <div id="divDebug" >
    <% #endif %>

Is this classic ASP or ASP.NET?

Giannis,

That was my first attempt (simple C convention).  Html ,asp, aspx, asp.net all new to me also.  Your suggestion  does not compile(build) on vs2012.  The first 'body' reports missing closing tag and the second 'body' reports cannot be nested within element 'body'.

Thanks for your response.  Hopefully this thread will ultimately help future developers.

kaufm3d,

ASP.NET.  Also available on the pages is ajax. We are using the "c# code behind" scheme.  

The actual issue is; On page_load we are setting local variables from the url, database, and authenticated user, which variables are used throughout the page(s), when developing locally the url is not valid, we use a different database and do not want to log in every time, or may want to log in as a different user, and may want to work on one page and not all the others in the parent frame.  We have the code working for development and release.  But we have to alternate commenting and un-commenting the appropriate sections on the aspx page.  This code is at the top of each aspx page.  The compiler directive works great on the code behind pages.  But have not succeeded on the aspx pages, yet.

Update, solved the div issue, a little embarrassed...

.aspx
<div id="divDebug" runat="server">

Open in new window


.aspx.cs
#if !DEBUG //RELEASE
                divDebug.Visible = false; //hide debug division

Open in new window


I have not figured out how to use this technique on the detectIFrame part, still working and searching...

This works for my application.

.aspx
<body runat="server" id="bodyMain" class="bodyMain">

.aspx.cs
#if !DEBUG //RELEASE
                bodyMain.Attributes.Add("onLoad", "detectIframe();"); //Force to load inside Iframe by redirecting to "/default.aspx"

.js
function detectIframe() {
    var framesetpage = "/default.aspx"
    if (parent.location.href == window.location.href)
        parent.location.href = framesetpage
}

Open in new window

I hope someone more experienced than I reviews this and applies "Best Practices" to my hack.

I believe all  # if DEBUG and !DEBUG function can be more effectively  made from the code behind.
