I love Visual Studio 2008. I even refer it to clients when setting up the SalesLogix Web Client to have available in case there is any debugging that needs to be done.

One of my customers on my recommendation installed vs2008 web dev express which now also will install SP1 of the .net framework. Luckily his site was in test as we found that users were unable to log in. After much head banging we discovered that the action tag on the form in the web page was not being rewritten correctly since it already had a value in it (javascript:void(0)) and therefore not causing a page post back.


More information can be located from here


The fix is to locate the action attribute in the Login.master page on the form tag and remove the action attribute from the tag completely.

Note that this is a SLX Web Client 7.2.2 and below issue and has been addressed for the 7.5 release



Note :

Further testing reveled that base.master, default.master, login.master, and dialog.master all had the action attribute set. To fully fix this issue the attribute needs to be removed from all of these pages. For example if you do not remove the attribute from base.master navigation will be broken on the detail pages such as account.ascx


Cheers, and have a good night
