Enableeventvalidation in asp.net

This feature eases the threat of unauthorized or nasty postback requests and callbacks. It is strongly suggested that you do not disable event validation.
Invalid postback or callback argument.  Event validation is enabled using. It don’t allow the user to insert the malicious data to post into browser;
 <%@ Page   enableEventValidation="true"  %>
By marking as EnableEventValidation= false ; any post back event like drop down or Button submit it won’t check the malicious data or Html encoded data.
Disabling the EnableEventValidation by below code;
   <%@ Page   enableEventValidation="false"  %>
You can do and assign the enableEventvalidation from code behind also like below code
protected void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            Page.EnableEventValidation = false;
        }
Enabling event validation for whole application by setting the enableEventvalidation=false in web.config file by;
<system.web>
    <pages  enableEventValidation="false">
     </pages>
    </system.web>

Encrypt ViewState in ASP.NET

To reduce the chance of someone intercepting the info stored in the ViewState, it is good design to encode the ViewState.
There are different ways algorithms for doing the encryption for view state like SHA1,MD5 and 3DES. (I am not explaining the details about the algorithm in this articles)
 
Most popular algorithm for encrypting the ViewState is 3DES.
 
<system.web>
   <machineKey validation="3DES" />
   <pages  enableViewStateMac="true" >
   </pages>
 </system.web>
 

Reduce viewstate size asp net

ViewState : Web is a stateless medium; i.e., states are not sustained between requests by default. A web page is formed every time a page is posted to the server. The ASP.NET framework provides us several ways to maintain the state. Where ViewState is the one of the way. ViewState. We can persist data during postbacks with the help of ViewState. Why do we call ViewState as client-side? Because the data is stored on the page, and if we move from one page to another, the data would be lost.

Where does the ViewState gets stored? : The ViewState is stored on the page in a hidden field named __viewstate.
Problem On ViewState : The ViewState is stored on the page in the form of a hidden variable. It’s always advised to use the ViewState as little as possible. We also have other ways to reduce the performance overhead.
How to Reduce ViewState Size: There are many ways to reduce the view state size
·         Either use the compression\decompression
·         Maintain the view state on another server.

I am demonstrating you one of the way to doing it by SessionPageStatePersister; The SessionPageStatePersister utilizes server sessions associated with the browser session to store the data.
There are pros and cons to consuming the SessionPageStatePersister. Using session in its place of a hidden field avoids an increase in the page size being shown to and from the browser. In many conditions, the page state is a major part of the overall markup. However, loading this data in session consumes valuable server resources. Hidden fields do not have an linked timeout the way sessions do.
In order to use a persist other than the default, you override the PageStatePersister property of the page and return an instance of another persister.
protected override PageStatePersister PageStatePersister
        {
            get
            {
                return new SessionPageStatePersister(this);
            }
        }
If you want to apply it throughout the application, you can create a derived class and there you defined the SessionPageStatePersister and Inherit that derived page throughout your applications.
   public class PagePersisterBasePage : Page
    {
        public PagePersisterBasePage()
        {
        }
        protected override PageStatePersister PageStatePersister
        {
            get
            {
                return new SessionPageStatePersister(this);
            }
        }

How IIS Process ASP.NET Request

When request come from client to the server a lot of operation is performed before sending response to the client. This is all about how IIS Process the request. 

Web Server
Web Server” comes into picture when we want to host the application on a centralized location and wanted to access from many locations. Web server is responsible for handle all the requests that are coming from clients, process them and provide the responses.

When we run our ASP.NET Web Application from visual studio IDE, VS Integrated ASP.NET Engine is responsible to execute all kind of asp.net requests and responses.  The process name is“WebDev.WebServer.Exe” which actually takw care of all request and response of an web application which is running from Visual Studio IDE.


IIS 

IIS (Internet Information Server) is one of the most powerful web servers from Microsoft that is used to host your ASP.NET Web application. IIS has it’s own ASP.NET Process Engine  to handle the ASP.NET request. So, when a request comes from client to server, IIS takes that request and  process it and send response back to clients.

Request Processing :


Hope, till now it’s clear to you that what is Web server and IIS is and what is the use of them. Now let’s have a look how they do things internally. Before we move ahead, you have to know about two main concepts
1.    Worker Process
2.  
 Application Pool
Worker Process:  Worker Process (w3wp.exe) runs the ASP.Net application in IIS. This process is responsible to manage all the request and response that are coming from client system.  All the ASP.Net functionality runs under the scope of worker process.  When a request comes to the server from a client worker process is responsible to generate the request and response. In a single word we can say worker process is the heart of ASP.NET Web Application which runs on IIS.

Read Data from Excel Sheet in c#

Reading the data from excel sheet without opening it; there you need to just call the method into you application.

You need to connect to the excel data base by OLEDB connection and call the  excel sheet;

protected void btnShow_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            GetData();
        }
      
        // save the data into dataview
        private void GetData()
        {
            DataTable sheetData = new DataTable();
            string strConn = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source= 'c:\\Product DetailsEmployee.xlsx';Extended Properties='Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;'";
            string query = "select * from [Sheet1$]";
            DataSet excelDataSet = new DataSet();
            OleDbDataAdapter da = new OleDbDataAdapter(query, strConn);
            da.Fill(excelDataSet);
            DgValue.DataSource = excelDataSet.Tables[0];
            DataView dv = ((DataTable)DgValue.DataSource).DefaultView;
            DataView dv_filter = new DataView();
            dv_filter.Table = excelDataSet.Tables[0];
            dv_filter.RowFilter = "Product_ID = '" + textBox1.Text + "'";
            DgValue.DataSource = dv_filter;
        }     

how to connect database in c# code project

Connecting the data to database and fetch the records from database and fill the Data adopter; and assign that value to Datatable;


protected void btnShow_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            BindData();
        }
        private void BindData()
        {
            try
            {
                string _connectionstring = @"Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=Northwind;Integrated Security=True";
                string _sql = "SELECT * FROM [Orders]";
                SqlConnection _connection = new SqlConnection(_connectionstring);
                SqlCommand _command = new SqlCommand(_sql, _connection);
                SqlDataAdapter _adapter = new SqlDataAdapter(_command);
                DataTable _table = new DataTable();
                _adapter.Fill(_table);
              
            }
            catch
            {
                throw;
            }

        }
