Default Something wron with local Server


I am testing inputin data in my database. The first I noticed is that most times when I run the website, I get a blank page that say Application_Offline.

Now the site loads fine, but when I try to insert data in the database using the DetailsView control, I keep getting the message: Internet Explorer cannot display te webpage.

Can anyone help me out please?

This is mostly happening with the Image.aspx page. Here is the code-behind for it.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.IO;

public partial class Admin_Images : System.Web.UI.Page
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        //if the page is not a post back, ensure that the GridView is 
        //displaying all images...
        //if (!Page.IsPostBack)
            int id = Convert.ToInt16(serviceDropDownList1.SelectedItem.Value);

            if (id == 0)
                //! The value of the first item in the dropdown list has been 
                //!set to 0; therefore, once this value is 0, it is certain that
                //!the selected item is not a valid Service. At this point, simply 
                //!display all images.
                GridView1.DataSourceID = "ServiceSqlDataSource";

        errorLabel.Visible = false;
    protected void serviceDropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        int id = Convert.ToInt16(serviceDropDownList1.SelectedItem.Value);
        if (id == 0)
            //GridView1.DataSourceID = "";
            GridView1.DataSourceID = "ServiceSqlDataSource";
            GridView1.DataSourceID = "SqlDataSource2";
    protected void DetailsView1_ItemInserting(object sender, DetailsViewInsertEventArgs e)
       //Get the currently selected service
        int id = Convert.ToInt32(serviceDropDownList1.SelectedItem.Value);

        //if the selected item in the dropdown list is not a valid service
        if (id == 0)
            e.Cancel = true;
            errorLabel.Text = @"You cannot add an image when there is no service 
                                selected. Please select the service from the dropdown 
                                and then try again.";

            errorLabel.Visible = true;
            e.Values["ServiceID"] = id; //Set the ServiceID value in the database
            e.Values["DateAdded"] = DateTime.Now; //Set the DateAdded value in the database

            //Find the FileUpload control in the DetailsView
            FileUpload imageUpload = (FileUpload)DetailsView1.FindControl("FileUpload1");

            string virtualFolder = "~/ServiceImages/"; //set the virtual path of the folder
            string physicalFolder = Server.MapPath(virtualFolder); //set the physical server location
            string filename = Guid.NewGuid().ToString(); //generate a unique name for the file
            string extension = Path.GetExtension(imageUpload.FileName); //get the extension of the file

            //save the file to a physical server location
            imageUpload.SaveAs(Path.Combine(physicalFolder, filename + extension));

            //save the virtual url in the database
            e.Values["ImageUrl"] = string.Format("{0}{1}{2}", virtualFolder, filename, extension);




    protected void GridView1_RowDeleted(object sender, GridViewDeletedEventArgs e)
        string deletedUrl = Server.MapPath(Convert.ToString(e.Values["ImageUrl"]));


Thank you...

Hi there,

Since this is not directly related to my book, may I suggest you post this in a general ASP.NET category from this list: http://p2p.wrox.com/asp-net-4-539/

This way, you'll attract more viewers and increase your chance on an answer.
