Default Sending mail from ContactForm: how to include a file?

Hi Imar,

Thanks for the great book! Since I am an absolute beginner, your book has helped me a lot!
Now I do have a question, I haven't been able to figure out on my own...
I am working on a website which includes a contact form with the option to include files (like CV, Application Letter, etc) to be sent via email.
I have been able to program all the text boxes and drop down list options, but I am totally lost as to how I can include the reference from FileUpload field that there is a file to be included as well...
Any help would be very welcome!

Thanks!

Hi vilcene,

You may want to take a look here: http://imar.spaanjaars.com/QuickDocId.aspx?quickdoc=412 This article shows you how to attach uploaded files directly to an e-mail.

In addition, check out Chapter 13, page 461 to learn more about using the FileUpload control.

Cheers,

Imar

Default cursor persistent

hello Imar Sir,

U have posted a reply regarding my question about cursor persistent that leads me to a diff. page. There was the following statement and code

Quote:
When using ASP.Net AJAX to perform a postback from within a textbox input control, I found that the textbox loses focus after the postback. To overcome this, I added the following code:
Code:
ScriptManager.GetCurrent(Me.Page).SetFocus(MyTextBox)
Quote:
However, upon setting focus back to the textbox, the cursor lands at the beginning of the text in the control. To solve this, just add the following JavaScript on the page or within window.setTimeout:
Code:
var textInput = $get('MyTextBox');
if (textInput.createTextRange)
{
    var range = textInput.createTextRange();
        range.moveStart('character', (textInput.value.length));
        range.collapse();
        range.select();
    }
Now it was regarding about one simple text box but I tried it in my senariou that is actually suggested by you in your book, that recommends about user control. There is one page ContactForm.aspx and also the user control.
Now please tell me how I change the code accordingly and where that code goes?

Hi there,

Please post replies in your own threads. This thread has nothing to do with your replies / issues. It clutters up the thread and makes it difficult to follow for others.

That said, I don't know as a) I haven't tried it out and b) I don't know the exact structure of your site. It appears to me that you need to replace MyTextBox with the client ID of your text control....

This will be a tricky problem anyway. Your best bet is probably to disable the timer in these edit pages.

Cheers,

Imar
