Dotfuscator User's Guide
Examining the ASP.NET Sample Code

The aspx page itself is very simple:

Copy Code
<%@ Page language="c#" Codebehind="DotfuscatorASP.aspx.cs" AutoEventWireup="false" Inherits="DotfuscatorASP.Sample" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" >
        <title>Dotfuscator ASP.NET Sample</title>
        <h1>Dotfuscator ASP.NET Sample</h1>
        <form id="SampleForm" method="post" runat="server">
            <p>You are visitor number&nbsp;<asp:Label id="CountLabel" runat="server" />&nbsp;to this site!</p>

All of the application logic resides in the DotfuscatorASP.aspx.cs code-behind file. Note that the aspx page references the class "DotfuscatorASP.Sample" and the field "CountLabel". These items are defined in the code behind. Since the aspx page is not processed until required by the web-server at runtime, these symbols must remain intact in the compiled code-behind assembly. Since they cannot be renamed, special steps must be taken to ensure that Dotfuscator will exclude them.

The class "DotfuscatorASP.Sample" has a static field, "PageLoadCount" that is incremented each time the page is loaded. This value is what is displayed in the CountLabel field and can be seen by the end-user in the browser. Note that this value is not persisted and will reset to the default value of 0 when the assembly is re-loaded by the web server.
