I will show you today how to create a ASP.NET Captcha control without using any HTTP HANDELRS or what so ever. you can easily plug it into your web pages.

All you need to do is Create a ASPX page, that ASPX page will have a content type of image/jpeg, then within the code-behind file of that asp page we will be using system.drawing namespace to create a dynamic image.

System will generate 2 Random numbers, and then it will store the result of these 2 numbers into a Session Variable.

For Example

a = 2 + 3 (where 2 and 3 are 2 random numbers)

Session("Answer") = 5

then we will create a image using System.drawing namespace with the text " 2+ 5 = " within it.
We will store the result into a session variable, so later on our webpage we can use this session variable to compare with what user types.

Lets see the code of Captcha.aspx:

Imports System.Drawing

Partial Class Captcha
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page


    Private Sub returnNumer()

        Dim num1 As New Random
        Dim num2 As New Random

        Dim numQ1 As Integer
        Dim numQ2 As Integer
        Dim QString As String

        numQ1 = num1.Next(10, 15)
        numQ2 = num1.Next(17, 31)


        QString = numQ1.ToString + " + " + numQ2.ToString + " = "
        Session("answer") = numQ1 + numQ2

        Dim bitmap As New Bitmap(85, 35)
        Dim Grfx As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(bitmap)
        Dim font As New Font("Arial", 18, FontStyle.Bold, GraphicsUnit.Pixel)
        Dim Rect As New Rectangle(0, 0, 100, 50)

        Grfx.FillRectangle(Brushes.Brown, Rect)
        Grfx.DrawRectangle(Pens.PeachPuff, Rect) ' Border
        Grfx.DrawString(QString, font, Brushes.Azure, 0, 0)


        Response.ContentType = "Image/jpeg"
        bitmap.Save(Response.OutputStream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg)



    End Sub

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

        Call Me.returnNumer()

    End Sub

End Class


So the Page_Load event Generates an Image.


now we can use this Page within any aspx page for verification. For Example here is form2.aspx

now you can create a TextBox, have users enter some text into it, and then create a ANSWER button, upon clicking of ANSWER button compare the value of textbox with the Session variable Session("answer"), if both are same then Verification passed.

if you have any questions, please reply to this post.

Thanks for reading

So I purchased jadoo2 / Jadoo 2 box last week, I've seen Original Jadoo Box already, So I think my post will help people better understand the difference b/w these two boxes.

There is Nothing promising which could make anyone buy Jadoo2. This is another quick trick by Jadoo team to make QUICK CASH.
Jadoo2 has SAME channels as Original Jadoo
Jadoo2 has same lagging issues
Jadoo2 has NOTHING that jadoo 1 did not had (in terms of channels etc)
What Jadoo2 Has is....
Support for WIRELESS N network
and Self-Proclaimed 1080p HD Support.
Let’s Talk about WIRELESS N support first.
Wireless N.... really a useless feature, nobody really wanted wireless N or demanded it. jadoo team just added it to make people think this will increase the speed of their box. Now Fact about N Technology.... Yes it is a Better Wireless Technology, however you also need compatible ROUTER also to pair them together.  even if you have Wireless N Router and Jadoo2 box, you will not see any significant difference. So this feature could easily be ignored.
HD Support in Jadoo2
Now this feature really PISSES me off, not ONE SINGLE DESI channel has true 720/1080p support, all desi channels are OLD SCHOOL 420i SD's. Jadoo really needs to stop advertising this feature. if a channel is not HD how can you make it HD? its same like make a Car FLY if it does not have Airplane Engine. only thing that is HD in jadoo2 is their Channel Menu. They will make a fool at you by giving you HDMI cables while there is no HD Channels.
Now my advice..... Both Jadoo & Jadoo2 / Jadoo 2 are Illegal devices, many people are under this impression that it’s a LEGAL device. Legal actions against jadoo could be taken ANYTIME.
so please use it at your own risk. 
I need to buy Jalva Tv within USA, anyone selling?

I can pick it up if in NY, otherwise I can pay for shipping, new or old does not matter.

Please give me your best offer.


I took few screens of Shava tv today (october, 2012). You can see how the Menu on Shava Tv looks like and few provided channels.

please note, I could not capture all the shava channels after the scrollbar, there is a sports category too for Cricket fans, if you want this box to watch any other sports besides cricket, then please dont buy. there is arabic & bengali category as well.

if you need to see more screens then let me know.


I could not find any valuable and fair information about these desi IPTV  boxes on internet. i am a owner of JAdoo Tv and Shava Tv...and i also know people who use Jalva Tv....i hope my article will help you buy the one that you need most.

Jadoo Tv (1 or 2)
Jadoo has stopped support for Jadoo 1 & 2. its for those who dont care about LIVE tv and like on-demand stuff only...jadoo tv has alot of on-demand dramas and movies. oh and cricket is also available, but no LIVE good channels.

Jadoo Tv 3

It has some nice on-demand stuff, and few live channels. I tried Hum Tv, Express News and few other news channels. Does not have GEO, ARY and does not have new Movies

Jadoo Tv 4

Lastest Jadoo tv to date, it has new air remote (you can use your fingers on remote to move around menus), option to install 3rd party apps (netflix etc). on-demand and live content is pretty similar to jadoo tv 3. 

Shava Tv
Built specialty for Desi Pakistani community...it has alot of Live Desi Pakistani channels and few Indians also. on-demand content for shava tv is very poor and cant even come close to jadoo. one more nice feature Shava has is...you can record programs (you have to buy Hard Drive). They also keep adding new movies. Shava Tv is less stable compared to jadoo... in terms of speed & support.

Jalva Tv
it is almost same as Shava, however does not have recording feature...rumors had it that jalva is about to change its name to BTV...which means something fishy is going on and i dont know for how long this box will stay in business.

on-demand suff includes movies, dramas,songs etc...and if this is what you need then get Jadoo...however jadoo is not posting content like it used to..could take days for new songs/movies to get updated. shava is for paki Live channels only..jalva I dont know for how long it can stay in market.

if you want to buy them then try not to buy online...online prices are pretty expensive...if you want to buy it then i would recommend you to buy from local stores...ask me if you need help.

Shava & Jadoo around $250,  BTV is Around $280..and jalva is around $350.

Did anyone tried any other box? or does anyone have their own opinion? then please share below.

At the end of the day...al these boxes are NOT really legal or official devices...so buy it at your own risk.
