Master Page issues and page refreshing

    Hello,
    We are designing a single logon site wide system here at my work. When my
    page opens it checks for the existance of a cookie that another of our web
    guys sets. It the cookie is present, I hit his webservice to get the user's
    name. If the user is authenticated, I log them in using FormAuthentication.
    All this seems to be working as expected and once the user is logged in, the
    user is permitted to do that which has been defined via Roles in the
    aspnetdb database and via my web.sitemap.
    The problem is, the user is logged in and the sitemap doesn't refresh
    without hitting the refresh button on the browser.
    I'm doing all of the checking and logging users on in my master page. My
    masterpage inherits from a class that inherits from
    System.Web.UI.MasterPage.

    I've tried several things to solve this problem such as,
    redirecting to the requested URL to force a page refresh.
    Calling the code for checking and logging on in different page events in the
    Masterpage such as:
    Page Load
    Page Init
    Page PreRender

    None of them seem to solve this problem though. I'm fairly certain that most
    of the problem is my lack of understanding about how things are occuring or
    the order in which they are occuring.

    I have a Table of Contents on the left side of the page that uses Repeater
    that binds to a TableAdapter. The Repeater actually uses a business class
    that returns the TableAdapter using rules according to the role the user is
    loggin as. This also doesn't refresh properly just like the Menu which is
    bound to my web.sitemap using the sitemap provider.

    The code I'm using is as follows and is located in the MastePageBase.vb file
    which the MasterPage inherits from:
    This is called from the MasterPage's Load event.
    Protected Sub ValidateLoggedIn()
    If Session(CUR_USER) Is Nothing Then
    If UserLoggedIn() Then
    'Page.DataBind() ' I tried this but it didn't make a
    difference
    Response.Redirect(Request.Url.ToString())
    End If
    End If
    End Sub

    Public Function UserLoggedIn() As Boolean
    If Not Session(CUR_USER) Is Nothing Then Return True

    Dim cookieval As String = Nothing
    Dim ccws As New checkCredentialsWS.checkCredentialsWS
    If Not Request.Cookies(Searchs.JSESSIONID) Is Nothing Then
    cookieval = Request.Cookies(Searchs.JSESSIONID).Value
    End If
    If cookieval Is Nothing Then
    ' For Production *************
    Dim sred As String =
    ConfigurationManager.AppSettings(LOGINPAGE_URL)
    If Not sred Is Nothing Then ' Redirect them to the
    login page
    Response.Redirect(sred & "&postbackURL=" &
    Request.Url.ToString())
    End If
    End If

    If ccws.isLoginCookieIDMatch(cookieval) Then
    Dim user As String = ccws.getUserName(cookieval)
    If Not user = "" Then
    FormsAuthentication.SetAuthCookie(user, False)
    Session(CUR_USER) = user
    Session(user) = True
    End If
    End If
    End Function

    Any help here is much appreciated.

  2. Hi SAL,

    I have one thing unclear about your scenario. Could you clarify it first?

    Quote from SAL ==================================================

    The problem is, the user is logged in and the sitemap doesn't refresh
    without hitting the refresh button on the browser.
    ==================================================

    By "the sitemap doesn't refresh" do you mean you want to refresh the Menu
    control on the page? If so I think you need it be switched from status 1 to
    status 2, right? Then what the status 1 and status 2 are?

    For now the suggestion I could provide is, if you're using the Login
    control, you can try to redirect in the LoggedIn event handler of the Login
    control. I think it should have the same effect as clicking the refresh
    button of the browser.

    If it still doesn't work please send me a demo that can reproduce this
    problem (From your description your project seems very complicated. If it's
    possible please send me a minimal repro). Please update here after sending
    the project in case I missed that email.

    Hi Allen. Thanks for you response.

    I got it figured out. It was just a little logic error.
    The logic of doing the Response.Redirect back to the page does indeed work
    as you suggest.
