Wow! did, I have a comeuppance when, I tried to use this previous blog post with real data! Problem, No Recurring Events! SPSiteDataQuery does not return recurring events! Darn! So not to be denied, I took a look on how to make this work! We can do this and do it with a Sandbox Solution! The gist of the problem is that we need to do merge of each lists ......

Well, maybe a stretch, but I am inclined to believe it is so. I have been using the JavaScript Client Object Model (JCSOM) for about 6 months now and I believe it can do about 80% of my job quickly without much fanfare. When building sites in SharePoint no one wants the OOTB list views, etc. They want a custom look and feel! I used to think in previous ......

I recently blogged about Knockout with JQuery and the SharePoint Client Script Object Model. I saw a use for some of the techniques used in SharePoint 2013 crossing over to SharePoint 2010. One of the issues, I am having working with my current client is that they are not master of their own domain. What I mean by that is that they have contracted with ......

I have been thinking this through since my last post on Knockout. I have always been in favor of using SharePoint for List CRUD operations instead of building CRUD into custom applications/web parts. What I mean is that let the user use the built-in New Form and Edit Form to add/edit items instead of building this capability in a custom web part or ......

I was playing with SharePoint 2013 on my Office 365 site and asked myself what is the most important skill I need to acquire as a developer for SharePoint 2013? The same skill, as I have needed from the very beginning as a SharePoint developer: Acquire SharePoint list data and customize the look and feel to meet customer requirements! Not needing the ......

While working at a few companies in the past, I have had occasion to need a quick and easy tool to get dynamic visual information to a higher headquarters. Sometimes, in regards to a different reporting mechanism that had reporting problems. Excel Services in SharePoint provided the solution. Easy for a Power User/Excel User to modify the data in the ......

I was interviewing for a new position and one of the questions that was asked of me: How would you overcome the limit of 10 overlays on the SharePoint 2010 calendar? I answered, after a moments reflection, that I would probably use some custom JavaScript and create a content type inheriting from the built-in Content Type Event. A complete shot in the ......

I was looking at codeplex and saw some tabbed web parts and a zone tab web part. One was really good except it had display issues and the documentation was weak! The issue of course is that a zone tabs JQuery UI solution needs a SharePoint page layout to set up the web parts zones on the layout! In thinking about the solution I thought about the JQuery ......

One of the Mantras we developers try to follow: Ensure that the solution package we deliver to the client is complete. We build Web Parts, Master Pages, Images, CSS files and other artifacts that we push to the client with a WSP (Solution Package) And then we have them finish the solution by building their site pages by adding the web parts to the site ......

As a Developer whom has worked closely with web designers (Power users) in a SharePoint environment, I have come across the issue of making the Data Form Web Part reusable across the site collection! In SharePoint 2007 it was very easy and this blog pointed the way to make it happen: Josh Gaffey's Blog. In SharePoint 2010 something changed! This method ......

In the past, I have shown how to create a list content type and add the content type to a list in code. As a Developer, many of the artifacts which we create are widgets which have a List or Document Library as the back end. We need to be able to create our applications (Web Part, etc.) without having the user involved except to enter the list item ......

In the previous blog post I discussed working with the list import tool for creating lists which was a timesaver for developing lists in the UI and then importing that list into a Visual Studio solution. I had some time in-between projects to make this process for simple lists just using the default views. How about doing this entire process in about ......

I had added some code behind to a SharePoint 2010 master page and it worked beautifully! I followed Andrew Connell’s blog and article on MSDN. I had actually created two more master pages with an identical code behind as they each needed the same bits. I had each inherit from the same code behind file. Everything worked great until we were having some ......

I have a client that desired to have the MOSS 2007 capability of My Links but in no way wanted My Sites in SharePoint 2010. I took some steps that gave them the capability of My Links by creating a personalized web part that could be linked to in a modal. It worked, However, in addition, they didn’t want users without web admin rights to see the SharePoint ......

I have been working on a Silverlight Navigation application which uses LINQ to query an XML data source and has been working without a hitch until I added a control to the landing page. All other pages which worked fine were loaded from the navigation service Once I added the control I got a page not found error! (The page is there) and If navigated ......
