Web Applications





Web applications are systems that run in browsers that perform functions normally associated with other client-based programs. One of the most commonly used web applications is email; instead of downloading individual emails to a local machine, the data is shown through a website. Other examples of web applications are collaborative systems like a wiki or an online game.

On the following web page:

When I view the source, I see (among other things):

<ul class="dropdown-menu">
              <li><a href="/overview/intro.html">What is Prebid?</a></li>
              <li><a href="/overview/what-is-prebid-org.html">What is Prebid.org?</a></li>
              <li><a href="/overview/prebid-members.html">Prebid Org Membership</a></li>
              <li><a href="/overview/prebid-management-committees.html">Prebid Management Committees</a></li>

              <li><a href="/blog.html">Blog</a></li>

Open in new window

However, at least some of the text e.g.
  1. What is Prebid?
  2. Prebid  Org Membership
  3. Prebid Management Commitees

does not appear on the live page. How can I view this info on the page itself? (This page is not from my client, but rather, from a third party whose info we need. I was alerted to some change by one of these web-crawler apps (Versionista) that emails me when something's changed on a monitored page.

I am looking for a plugin for an ASP Classic web application that uses Bootstrap/SQL

We have some text fields or HTML editors where currently users have to type, I was wondering if there is any software out there that would allow a user to use their mic to enter the text into the HTML editor with speech.
I have to give a knowledge sharing session. Need some help and presentation topics...
Mainly i work on java side... web applications spring framework.

Hello, i am creating ASP.net application using web browser my application locally working fine after that hosting this application in our server ... application not working not showing any data and no error show...
1. web browser control permission problem in my VPN windows server 2012 r2?
 2. web browser control install windows server 2012 r2 ?
3. how to permit this control in our VPN windows server 2012 r2 ?

When we add a new feature to our web application, I insert a "NEW FEATURE" banner into the appropriate page. e.g.

NEW FEATURE: The system now supports reciting pi out to 20 decimal places. Click here for details.

I'm now documenting a change to existing functionality and want to announce this update in a similar manner. But, it's not a new feature. What would be a viable alternate term? ENHANCEMENT? SOFTWARE CHANGE? <Something else?>

Hello Experts currently our website requires CAC or PKI to get to login screen.  Is there anyway to capture CAC Id's as users login?  Rather than having 1500 users send us their CAC Id's & manually tied to their account?
In our web based software there is a date input which works well in Chrome, Edge and Opera according to localization, but it doesn't work in Firefox and Safari.

As a workaround we built the Modernizr extension like this:
        if (!Modernizr.inputtypes.date) {
                  dateFormat : 'yy-mm-dd'

The date shows well with the default value e.g. 2017-11-02 but when the user clicks in it the format changes and it sets a new date (1902 jan. 2).

I attached the pictures

default_value.jpg = Default value
on_focus.jpg = Clicked
after_focus_click.jpg = when it loses focus, without changing the value
We ran a vulnerability scan and got this alert:  HTTP Security Header Not Detected
Description:  This QID reports the absence of the following HTTP headers according to CWE-693: Protection Mechanism Failure

How can we fix this issue?
We are running the application on IIS7
We had a field which was nvarchar 8000, it was changed to a text field to accomodate more characters.

I currently have the code below to call the Stored Procedure, but the parameter is for 8000 characters, how should I change it to allow the entry of as many characters as the text field allows?


Set UpdateSignature = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Command")
UpdateSignature.ActiveConnection = MM_bluedot_STRING
UpdateSignature.CommandText = "UPDATE Userlogin SET Emailsignature = ? WHERE  userid = ?"
UpdateSignature.Parameters.Append UpdateSignature.CreateParameter("MMColParam", 200, 1, 8000, MM_IIF(Request.Form("signature"), Request.Form("signature"), UpdateSignature__MMColParam & ""))
UpdateSignature.Parameters.Append UpdateSignature.CreateParameter("MMColParam2", 3, 1, 4, MM_IIF(Session("Userid"), Session("Userid"), UpdateSignature__MMColParam2 & ""))
UpdateSignature.CommandType = 1
UpdateSignature.CommandTimeout = 0
UpdateSignature.Prepared = true


Open in new window

Something else that may be relevant is that this field is intended to save the user's signature block, if they add an image (their logo) then the HTML editor converts it into characters and this is where 8000 characters don't seem to be enough.
I am not sure if because we are including an image I may need to use a different type of data for the user, otherwise I guess text fiedl will work.

I have an ASP classic application that sends emails, I currently use an old extension for Dreaweaver to generate the code that sends emails. Its like a wizard, you fill out the necessary information and the extension creates the code.
Unfortunately the latest versions of Dreamweaver do not support this extension anymore.

I am looking for some sort of template/code/plugin I can use to replace the old code, something more modern I guess.

The current extension allows me to specify the following:

1.  SMTP server details (CDOSYS)
2. Subject
3. Recipients (to/cc/bcc, this can be a list that comes from a result of a recordset)
4. Attached documents (Also from the results of a recordset, could be more than one attachment)
5. HTML for the body of the email

Anything to replace this extension must include the above at least.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I have a stored procedure that updates a record.
I need to add code so that it only runs IF the parameter passed has a value

The parameter is:  request.querystring("marriageidspouse")

If the parameter does existing run the SP code, something like:

IF request.querystring("marriageidspouse") <> NULL THEN 



Open in new window

What would the correct syntax be?

Sometimes the part of the URL passes no value like:  marriageidspouse=

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

We have recently migrated a .NET web application which uses web forms to be hosted on Azure.  We use session variables to keep some objects in memory after we query from the database to avoid multiple trips to the database:

string companyName = Session["Company"];

Open in new window

It was brought to our attention that azure doesn't handle session variables well and that another method should be used.  Either through table, sql azure, or azure cache.  We were thinking of using the latter, the azure redis cache.  Is this an issue we should address right away as we are about to release to production?  Also, if we cannot address it right away, how unreliable it will be to use the current session state management?  If this is an issue now that we need to address is using the redis cache the best route to go?  This is a moderately sized app with no more than 200 users.
When I email a list of results via email we currently only have the HTML which is not very nice formatting.
When I display it as a webpage we use bootstrap so the formatting looks nice.

Is there a way to send the HTML table via email and make it look nice?  like the one we have online using bootstrap classes?

Alternatively do you know of any nice HTML5 template I can use to email tables with repeated regions?  (Many records)
I am trying to improve the look/feel of the email.
We have requirement to host a website with our customers data (PII), The requirement is that we need to share the data to our customers with a link on request.

Is there any way we can generate a unique  link from website where  its only accessed by the same customer, basically we dont want the customers to tamper the link and get access to other customers data.

I am not an expert in web security, Please advise
I want to put attached picture file, as the background of this Web page.

I have an ASP page that has about 20 recordsets. Each recordset returns a maximum of 10 records, some only return one.
Would the ASP run faster if the code to return the records is in the ASP page or would it be faster if I create stored procedures that then the ASP would call to create the recordsets and return the records?

I am using ASP classic and MS SQL 2012 R2
Hi there,

So in my project I have a *ngFor loop and then in the child element I have a *ngSwitchCase that will produce an error.

The error says: 'Can't bind to '*ngSwitchCase' since it isn't a known property of 'div'.'
