Displaying Multimedia Content In A Floating Window Using FancyBox

While surfing the web you may have come across websites with images and other multimedia content that, when clicked, were displayed in a floating window that hovered above the web page. Perhaps it was a page that showed a series of thumbnail images of products for sale, where clicking on a thumbnail displayed the full sized image in a floating window, dimming out the web page behind it. Have you ever wondered how this was accomplished or whether you could add such functionality to your ASP.NET website? In years past, adding such rich client-side functionality to a website required a solid understanding of JavaScript and the “eccentricities” of various web browsers. Today, thanks to powerful JavaScript libraries like jQuery , along with an active developer community creating plugins and tools that integrate with jQuery, it’s possible to add snazzy client-side behaviors without being a JavaScript whiz. This article shows how to display text, images, and other multimedia content in a floating window using FancyBox , a free client-side library. You’ll learn how it works, see what steps to take to get started using it, and explore a number of FancyBox demos. There’s also a demo available for download that shows using FancyBox to display both text and images in a floating window in an ASP.NET website. Read on to learn more! Read More >

Examining ASP.NET’s Membership, Roles, and Profile – Part 16

Expiring passwords are a common technique used for improving the security of a computer system. In a nutshell, the system specifies a number of days for which a given password is valid, be it 30 days, 90 days, 120 days, or longer. Once this validity window passes, a user must change her password to a new one before being able to log in. Operating systems like Microsoft Windows have long provided such functionality, but password expiry is a feature that is not as prevalent in web applications. The ASP.NET Membership system and Login Web controls do not offer out of the box support for password expiry. However, all of the pieces are there for us to implement password expiry; it takes just a dash of markup here and a pinch of code there. For example, the Login Web controls include a ChangePassword control, which allows a user to reset his password. The Membership system already tracks the last date and time a user changed his password, and with a few lines of code we can customize the authentication logic for the Login control, prohibiting users whose password has expired from logging in. This article shows how to implement password expiry in an ASP.NET application that uses the SqlMembershipProvider Membership provider; the complete code is available for download at the end of this article.
