Enable a button on check box checked without page refresh

In this tutorial I will show you how to enable a button on checking of a check box without using any update panel.  This is i found when I wanted to enable a register button in an registration form using update panel and the Css of the button was not working when it is disable.

So lets create a new project. And add a new check box and a button into a new web form.

<asp:CheckBox ID="chkTermsCondition" runat="server" Text="Check now"/></a>
<asp:Button ID="btnRegister" runat="server" Text="Register" 
onclick="btnRegister_Click" class="contact-button" />

Now in the head section add a java script code to do the action.

<script type="text/javascript" src="">
<script  type="text/javascript" >
    $(function () {
        var $btn = $(":submit[id$=btnRegister]");
        var $chk = $(":input:CheckBox[id$=chkTermsCondition]");
        // check on page load
        $ () {
        function checkChecked(chkBox) {
            if ($':checked')) {
            else {
                $btn.attr('disabled', 'disabled')

Add Jquery plugin to your project or add Google, Jquery online plugin. And now run the project and test. Enjoy...  :)

Add Custom Controls in your ASP.NET Project

This article is about to discuss about the adding custom controls in  ASP.NET project. So what is a Custom control. Its a server control add you can create and add to any other project you want like C K Editor, AJAX Control Toolkit, Telerik, Dev Express etc.

So, to do this you need to create a new Server Control.

Now in this project you will find a class called ServerControl1.cs with code.
Now out mission is to do some action like say if in any other project in a textbox if we write "A" it will return "OK" else it will return "Not OK".

So copy the code follow here and paste into your RenderContents method.

protected override void RenderContents(HtmlTextWriter output)
    if (this.Text == "A")
       output.Write("Its OK ---done by Arkadeep\n");
        output.Write("Not OK ---done by Arkadeep\n");

Now build your project and get the .dll file of your project.

Now in another project add a new web form and add a new textbox and button.
On that project add the reference of your server control project.

Now add a register in the web form.

<%@ Register Assembly="ServerControl1" Namespace="ServerControl1" TagPrefix="ccs" %>
 Now add this code,

<ccs:ServerControl1 runat="server" ID="a1" Visible="false"></ccs:ServerControl1>

This is your control which you have created in your server control project.

Now in the button_click event write the code.

a1.Text = TextBox1.Text;
a1.Visible = true;

In this way you call your server control to execute. Now run your program to execute and test.

Insert Data using WCF Into Database in ASP.NET C#

In this article I will show you how to insert data into database using Windows Communication Foundation(W.C.F.). 

For that first you need to create a WCF Service Application.

Now to insert data into database you need to get help of two things.

  • OperationContract (Add services operation)
  • DataConntract (add type to services operation)
Now in the IService1.cs create your own method named InsertData(UserData user)

string InsertUserDetails(UserData user);

Now add the UserData class with its members  at IService1.cs

public class UserData
        string password = string.Empty;
        string country = string.Empty;
        string email = string.Empty;
        public string Password
            get { return password; }
            set { password = value; }
        public string Country
            get { return country; }
            set { country = value; }
        public string Email
            get { return email; }
            set { email = value; }

Now add the following code in the Service1.svc

public string InsertUserDetails(UserData userInfo)
            string Message;
            SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("Data Source=.;Initial Catalog=WCF_Demo;Trusted_Connection=true");
            SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("insert into RegistrationTable(Password,Country,Email) values(@Password,@Country,@Email)", con);
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Password", userInfo.Password);
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Country", userInfo.Country);
            cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Email", userInfo.Email);
            int result = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
            if (result == 1)
                Message ="successful.";
                Message = "Sorry Unsuccessful.";
            return Message;

Now run the Service1.svc of the project. and will get an url in the browser.

Now create another project(Website) and add a new webform.

Now add a web reference to the project by right clicking on the project name in solution explorer.

And after adding this reference you will find that in your solution explorer.

Now add some textbox and a button to make a registration form. Something looking like this one.

Now in the code behind add the code following.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using WCF_Insert.ServiceReference1;
namespace WCF_Insert
    public partial class WebForm1 : System.Web.UI.Page
        ServiceReference1.Service1Client objServiceClientobjService = new ServiceReference1.Service1Client();
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            UserDetails userInfo = new UserDetails();
            userInfo.Password = TextBoxPassword.Text;
            userInfo.Country = TextBoxCountry.Text;
            userInfo.Email = TextBoxEmail.Text;
            string result = objServiceClientobjService.InsertUserDetails(userInfo);
            LabelMessage.Text = result;

Before closing the application create a table named RegistrationTable with coloumns of..

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[RegistrationTable]
      [Password] [varchar](20) NOT NULL,
      [Country] [varchar](100) NOT NULL,
      [Email] [varchar](200) NOT NULL

Now its over. Run your project and enjoy the WCF.

Loading a .TXT file into a Label using C# in ASP.NET

Some times its very important to get and show data from an external file like .txt file. So in this example I will show you how to get the data of a .txt file in a label or a text box in ASP.NET using C#.

Create a new project and add a web form. In the App_Data folder create a txt file and put some data into it. We will get the value of from that txt file.

On the page load event of your web form write the following code.

if (!this.IsPostBack)
    using (StreamReader stRead = 
               new StreamReader(Server.MapPath("~/App_Data/file.txt")))
        int i = 0;
        string name = string.Empty;
        string valueFromtoEnd = string.Empty;
        while (!stRead.EndOfStream)
            if (i > 2 && i <= 4)
                valueFromtoEnd += stRead.ReadLine();
                Label1.Text = Label1.Text + stRead.ReadLine() + "<br />";
            if (i > 4)

It will show the text as in the .txt file.
If you want to show it in a text box just change the label into a text box.

Get HTML Drop Down List value in code behind C#

Few days ago I stuck into a problem , I need to get the value of from a HTML drop down list in my c# code behind page. So I started searching and found the solution.  Very simple solution indeed. Just a single line code to end the problem.

Suppose the drop down list code is

<select name="cars">
  <option value="volvo">Volvo XC90</option>
  <option value="saab">Saab 95</option>
  <option value="mercedes">Mercedes SLK</option>
  <option value="audi">Audi TT</option>

And a ASP button to get the value..

<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" onclick="Button1_Click" />

Now on the C# page write the bellow code.

var car = Request["cars"];

If you are using ASP Drop Down List then the code will be little bit different.

<asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server">

And on button click..


Now enjoy the code..
