Get ASP.NET Menu work on Chrome, Safari and Opera

I have done some research on this, i found couple of interesting solutions. Actually the are cracks to get Menu working

Solution 1:

// For Cross Browser Compatibility (Safari/Chrome) 
       if (Request.UserAgent.IndexOf("AppleWebKit") > 0) 

I have added this code in master page. I Worked when there is no master page. But when there is a master page its not working for the first time so found below code which works with master page.

Solution 2:

protected override void AddedControl(Control control, int index) 
      if (Request.ServerVariables["http_user_agent"].IndexOf("Safari", StringComparison.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase) != -1) 
          this.Page.ClientTarget = "uplevel"; 
      base.AddedControl(control, index); 

The reason i added it in the AddedControl method was so that i didn't have to use a basepage or parent class that every single aspx file had to inherit. And its the only method that i found to run before the Page_PreInit. Hope it works for you too!

Potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client : ValidateRequest

This error is caused because the .NET framework detected HTML in an input control (e.g. TextBox). I've highlighted 3 possible ways to get round the issue, all with their advantages and disadvantages:

1. Add the following to the existing Page directive on the relevant pages.

<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Master.master" ValidateRequest="false" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs"
    Inherits="_Default" %>

2. Add the following to the Web.config within the <system.web> section (globally disable request validation). This will allow users to enter HTML into controls which could be harmful or result in undesirable consequences.


<pages validateRequest="false" />


3. Unless you need users to be able to enter HTML into a form, make sure all HTML displayed in controls is encoded.

lblTextBox.Text = HttpUtility.HtmlEncode( lblTextBox.Text );
