Upgrading Code from 2007 to 2010

So I’ve been doing some upgrades just to see if things will work from 2007 to 2010. So far most of the stuff I want works, but obviously there are some things that break. Did you guys know that in 2007 you could add a webpart to the view pages for lists and libraries without losing the toolbar? In 2010 the ribbon disappears every time you add a webpart. So if you are using Scot Hillier’s Codeplex project to hide buttons it will not work the same way, because the ribbon is going to disappear altogether. ......

Dude, where is my list instance?

I saw an MSDN Forum post today, so I looked for a ListInstance Hidden property in SharePoint 2007 features. There is none, but interestingly enough there is one in 2010. I wondered what would happen if you did this: <Elements xmlns="http://schemas.micro... <ListInstance FeatureId="00bfea71-de22-43... Title="Hidden List Test" Description="Testing a hidden list." TemplateType="100" Hidden="TRUE" OnQuickLaunch="FALSE" Url="Lists/TestHidden" /> </Elements> ......

Bug When Copying Attachments in SharePoint

Recently I was tasked to create a console application to get all the attachments from a list and copy them to a file share. Everyone has code out there, but I noticed not one single place had the correct formatting for everything. First off there is gotcha. You cannot copy SPAttachmentCollection from the List Item and step through the list of strings. You need to pull in the Item.Attachments.UrlPrefix and throw it into an SPFolder Item like below: SPFolder Folder = Web.GetFolder(Item.Attachme... ......

What I Learned this Week by Becky Isserman

So I decided it was time to take a few minutes this week and discuss what I learned this week. This moral is not really something new it's more a reiteration. I hate third party features with little to no documentation. I like developing my own products and knowing what I am doing. I was working with some big name third party feature and I felt like an idiot. First off I had to contact them to get an older version of the product. Some guy with a name like Frankenstein's henchman contacted me. If ......

Kansas City Day of Dot Net: Changing my Presentation

I am going to start with a user control and then head towards feature and webpart development. I will also talk about some tools and how to get started with SharePoint Development. That way the people in Kansas City interested in getting started with SharePoint get a little bit of an idea where to start. If you guys are interested in my Wildcard Search ......

Stepping Back

I'm taking two steps back and one step forward. As some of you know I had a not so great last week due to taking on way too much in life. This past year has been my let's get active and out of the house year. It ended up becoming the "Becky Cannot Say No" year. I am one of those people who has a philosophy that involves giving yourself at least 1 hour to do something absolutely brainless per day. For me if I don't get that one hour I start to have issues in my life. So from last week on I am giving ......

Cheap and Easy Wildcard Search

So I came up with a new presentation based on something I did at Terracon with wildcard search using Patrick Tisseghem's Book on Search. I am going to walk attendees through some basic SharePoint Search Functionality and talk a little about what is missing in the out of the box web parts. Then I am going to show attendees what they can do using the Query Object Model, some ASP .Net Controls, and a GridView to add some more search functionality. Here is a list of the dates and events that I will be ......

Interesting SharePoint Fact for Last Week

So I promised you guys one interesting fact based on my dev experiences every week. I failed last week due to a ton of junk going on. Here it is: Open up an "EditForm.aspx" in SharePoint Designer Go to the Insert menu and click on the SharePoint Section and you will see Insert Custom List Form Field At this point you want to choose the list you are working with in the drop down and make sure the radio button for Edit Form is selected Switch to Split and highlight part of the form tables, notice you ......

Some Trips and Some Changes

I know I have been really silent and I am not usually this silent. I have not really had a substantially awesome blog entry in a while. Well that is due to some trips, some changes, some book writing, and some life events. First off here is my Flickr Url http://www.flickr.com/photo... so I don't have to embed a ton of pictures. My New York Pictures will be up tomorrow or the next day, but the Maine/New England ones are already up. You can see the beauty of Acadia National Park. I would ......

Hotfix 946517 and 941422, Where did my FrontPage Extensions Go!?

So I installed these hotfixes on my SharePoint Test Box: http://support.microsoft.co... and http://support.microsoft.co... Everything seemed to check out fine. There were no weird errors on my box anymore (i.e. 6398, 6482, and 7076). I assumed there would be no problem on my production box. I got onto the production box and followed the instructions for installing the hotfixes, including a restart on the Windows Server Hotfix and running the Configuration Wizard for SharePoint on ......

How I Got an Ajax Progress Bar to Work in SharePoint

So I did not really use multithreading...I went with Ajax instead and I used a button click event. We decided that we wanted to ask the users if they are sure they want to create the site before actually creating the site. It was so much easier in Ajax as you will see in the steps below: First off you want to download and install the ASP .Net 2.0 Ajax Extensions 1.0 from here: http://asp.net/ajax/downloa... Next you are going to need to change the web .config a little bit on your IIS Entry for the ......

Babies First Windows App

I had never written a Windows Application outside of my training course almost 3 years ago in .Net 1.1 around the time I received my MCAD Certification. I agreed to write one using some of the code from my Console Applications. I was pretty scared. I wasn't sure if I would be able to rise to the challenge. I must say I really enjoyed it. I believe that I could write another one if I wanted to do it. I kept adding on more features that I wanted, until finally I just said enough. I need to finish this ......

Site Data Reports...I finally decided to shove something on Codeplex...

I ran into a lot of problems at work related to viewing all user alerts, permissions, and libraries/lists with different permissions. So I created a little open source project using a bit of the source code from SUSHI on Codeplex. I liked the fact that it displayed everything from top down via sites/lists/libraries that had different permissions than the top site. However, I modified it a bit to display permissions, alerts, and all sites information plus all lists and libraries that did not inherit ......

Speaking at MOSS Camp in St. Louis...

I will be speaking at MOSS Camp (http://www.stlsug.org/MOSS... in St. Louis on creating/changing multiple sites, lists, libraries through a Windows Application that I am going to port from one of my Console Applications. I am not a big Windows Application Fan, so I will probably port this application over to a web user control that links into the SMART PART...Anyway, I have too much book stuff to do, sleep to catch up on (neighbor decides they want to play music until 2/3 am every ......

DeliverPoint...Oy...

So I wanted to try DelivePoint from Barracuda Tools and I was a bit disappointed. I was expecting this tool to map out the Active Directory Groups for each site with the type of permissions plus tell me what lists and libraries had a break in permissions and what groups were associated. When I tried to view the permissions for a given site it only allowed me to choose site collection administrators, full control, designer, and readers. There was no option to view any custom permissions, contributors ......

The Lazy Web Parts

I was doing some documentation today on this site that is part of a collection of customized sites. It has JavaScript (yuck) and web parts galore. I get to this site that deals with Affiliated Items for this particular site and I notice that there are 5 web parts. I am wondering why do you need 5 web parts when you take in a query string and provide a list of items. What you really only need is a Query String Web Part connected to another Web Part or a Web Part that reads the Query String. For some ......

But My AD Group is Email Enabled!? So Why Can't I Send Alerts?

Well kids if you did not know about this little known bug now you do. Even if you email enable your active directory group, then SharePoint may still not send alerts. I have no idea why this problem occurs. If you search for that AD Group, then you will notice no e-mail address will show up for that group even if it has an address attached...Well I did some googling and I found this beautiful article: http://blog.gavin-adams.com... Basically, ......

My Nemesis XPath

I did not realize this fact until today...I really dislike XPath as I am not allowed to express hate due to it being technically against my religious beliefs. I was working with a form in InfoPath 2003, because Terracon is not getting 2007 until next year. I created this form that uses a repeating table and a drop down list. When certain values are selected on the drop down list it will pop up certain text in various columns in this row. Unfortunately I was getting only the last row using a count ......

SharePoint Lovers Code Camp in the Lou

If anyone is interested in a MOSS code camp and they can get to St. Louis on April 5th they will be hosting a MOSS Camp Event. I signed up to present, but I'm not sure if I'll get picked. I want more experience and this event looks really cool. Plus I go to St. Louis once a month, so I figure I will get to see my best friend who I am missing this weekend. After all I have at least two or three extra places I could stay if for some reason I couldn't stay at my parents place. Here is the link for anyone ......

The DataGrid and His Enemy the Dataview

I was working a SPDataGridView Webpart today. I was trying to get the grid to refresh and re-bind itself after a specific client was deleted in the web part. When I tried to clear the grid it would not clear at all. It would refresh with the exact same data, until I hit F5 on Internet Explorer. I finally thought to myself what if I get rid of the Dataview as a source and call the DataSet directly. Sure enough I change it and clear the DataSet, then rebind and grid and when I delete the client it ......

Contact List Limb Re-Attachment

After struggling for 2 1/2 days I finally came up with a passable solution for this problem. I would create a custom list mirrored after the Contact List Template, except it would include Full Name as the Title field. I created a console application that would go through each site and create the new list using the clean template, import all the information, delete the old list, and add the link to the QuickLaunch. If you go through my old entries I have information sprinkled about in code sample ......

Asian Support & SharePoint Limb Decapitation Issue

On some contacts this week we noticed that Last Name Phonetic, First Name Phonetic, and Company Name Phonetic were turned on in some contact lists. I googled around and found a couple articles that said these are Asian Support Fields. I did not really find exactly what Asian Support entails or how to turn it off completely. However, I did find a workaround that basically had me go into the Contact Content Type and hide all these phonetic fields. We are not going to be using these fields anytime soon, ......

Trouble with Solution Packages on a SharePoint Server Farm

I mentioned a while back that we setup a server farm with a Query, Index, Application, and SQL Box. Well we deployed all the old web parts and we are having all kinds of crazy issues on this farm. I'm not sure exactly what nuttiness is occurring, but half the time the solution packages are failing to deploy or the feature isn't installing in the batch files. Unfortunately, I installed VS 2005 and VSEWSS 1.1 and Visual Source Safe. I tried implementing the solutions through Visual Studio and it will ......

Proton Pack Engaged -- SharePoint Ghost Caught

Remember this post I made a bit ago: Is there a Ghost in SharePoint? Well I spent a good couple of days looking at all kinds of error logs trying to trick it with a feature of the same GUID. Finally, I thought what is the last thing I played with that could have a feature involved and it hit me the U2U CAML Query Builder. I installed this feature and activated it, then realized it was showing up on every single list in my site collection farm. I deactivated the feature and ran the uninstaller. I ......
