    Strange behaviour, not a bug but user error, use imagegen.ashx not .aspx

    Just wanted to share this because I'm sure I'm not the only person who's experienced this problem, in fact I've seen the symptom on this very website! (maybe not caused by the same error)

    When calling imagegen make sure you use the .ashx syntax not .aspx

    I was having intermittent problems with a website using imagegen, in firefox especially (but maybe not browser dependent), the page wouldn't finish loading, the title showed as "ImageGen" and text like the following displayed at the top of the page:

    HTTP/1.1 200 OK Cache-Control: private Content-Length: ?? Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8 Server:  Microsoft-IIS/7.5 X-AspNet-Version: 2.0.50727 X-Powered-By: ASP.NET Date: ??

    The solution I found here - although it seems to be a different problem/symptom there.

    HI Claire,

    In your macro's you are calling imagegen.aspx change that to imagegen.ashx and all should work.

    Yes!  That's what I was trying to say, but it came out rather rambling.  I was trying to point out my error for others who were searching.  Thanks Richard :-)

    The next version of ImageGen will not include the .aspx file, which was only meant for backward compatibility with very old installations of ImageGen.
