Moving Documents from One Document Library to Another

As you all know I write a lot of maintenance console applications to perform upgrades on huge subsets of sites. This week I was asked to create a console application that will cut down six documents libraries into three document libraries. I wanted to use the CopyTo() Function, but there is a bug. I did find a nice MoveTo() Function in SPFile. I ended up using that code instead here is a little sample: //copy documents and deletes libraries SPList ProposalsWord = Web.Lists["Proposal Template (Word)"]; ......

Where did my ListView Web Parts Go!?

A couple of days ago we got a call that all the lists and libraries had no information on one of our websites. I looked around to see if this problem was replicated on another site. It was not. So I re-added all the ListView Webparts on the pages and went about my business. Yesterday we found one more website where nothing was showing up. I looked on the event logs, but so far I can not see the source of the problem. The logs are pretty clean since I fixed the timer job leak. I have no idea when ......

Baltimore Trip Synopsis

If you read my blog you know my family is insane well that doesn't quite explain my trip and I won't go into much detail about parts of my family. All in all there were good parts of the trip and that is what I will talk about the good parts of the trip and not the bad parts. The highlights of the trip included the Inner Harbor. We got in incredibly late on Friday and ended up passing out on site. The next day we went to the Inner Harbor in Baltimore and caught a Unicycle Pirate Lady and the Body ......

MOSS Comic Random Ideas

It was a nice day out today, so I decided to take my trusty old notebook out with me and work on some comic ideas. Here is what I have so far: Support Calls (hilarious ones related to SharePoint, if you have ideas e-mail me or contact me with them real life fuels the best stuff) Twitter Mockery and Fun Something related to how devs always have a ton of windows open and need a billion gigs of ram, especially when they need a SharePoint VPC Ability to create multiple alerts (user hilarity ensues) Why ......

What I have been doing at work the past few weeks...

I'm all about trying new things, because I believe I am ADHD and get very bored at work sometimes. So my boss and one of my fellow colleagues threw at me a couple of requirements for our newest set of sites. We are working on some sites for various offices, which I think will be really cool. Some of the things that they wanted were the ability to see a set of global links and site specific links on the quick launch bar. They wanted something dynamic, so one of the other devs wondered if we could ......

My 15 Minutes of Fame in D.C.

It's not really huge amounts of fame, but I will be speaking at SUGDC Summer Regional SharePoint Conference. I saw a post yesterday on a blog about this event, so I thought hey why not throw out an abstract and bio see if they want me to come out. At this point I had not thought out exactly how I would get there and where I would stay. They responding today telling me that they would give me 15 minutes to speak about SharePoint and AJAX at a roundtable. I was like that is so cool, but how am I going ......

Tulsa School of Dev Rocked!!!

I had an incredible time in Tulsa. Things were a bit rocky at first, because Google gave me some bad directions for Friday night, so I turned around about 4 times just to get the 11th street exist from highway 64. I was a little disappointed with the Doubletree Inn, so I'm sticking with Hampton Inn from now on. $20 for a burger and Ore Ida fries that I could make on my grill at home is insane. Some of the people were really nice at the hotel, but some were just flat out rude. When it was time to ......
