Display specific table from the start vs selecting from a list.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hello all, I'm using VS2010, EF 4.0. I want to display a list view from a specific table from the start -instead of the standard default page that list all the tables. Any ideas are welcome.

DataFormwebpart to display specific folder data of a List.



I am having one requirement where the DataFormwebpart should display specific folder data of a List. For an exxample I have one list which has three folders Level 1 , Level2 and Level3 . I want that when webpart is added on SharePoint page it should display data of Level1 and not the root level data of list. 

Basically the webpart needs to be drilled to Level1 folder by default rather than root folder of List.


Display rating control in xslt list view webpart without table header



In the same code, pasted above if I want to display rating control using xslt list view webpart what I need to write.

I have created few xslt list view webparts for my site but I am not able to display rating control using xslt. I am writing something like this

<xsl:apply-templates select="$Fields[@Name='AverageRating']" mode="PrintField">
              <xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="."/>
              <xsl:with-param name="Position" select="$Position"/>

But for this I think i need to include some parameter or any particular template. Using the above type of code in xslt this is not working. I do not want to display table header row. Please guide me on this.


Site Analytics - how get specific list item id to display in Top Page Results

We have created a new Site to store Knowledgebase Articles. The articles are being added as items in the list. We now want to find which are the most viewed items. When I look at Site Analytics, I find several pages being returned including what I believe are the Items viewed. When I look at the details under the graph or when exported to Excel, this the is extent of the Page URL (/lists/kbarticles/dispform.aspx?...). There are several occurances of this same URl which I expect are separate items that have been viewed. How do I get the ID of the item or other information, so I can track it to the specific Knowledgebase Article? Additional information: I can click on the URl and it will take me to the unique Knowledgebase Article.

Attach Workflow to Task List, don't get option to manually start workflow via dropdown on task item



I am running WSS 3.0 with other workflows which are functioning correctly.  I created a new workflow in Visual Studio 2008 and was able to successfully run it in my dev environment.  I attached the workflow to a task list in my dev environment and was able to manually start the workflow by using the drop down workflow option and using the menus to manually start it.  I installed this workflow in our production environment and attached it to the task list (which had a SPD workflow attached to it which stopped working about a month ago).  I made sure that the option to manually start the workflow was checked.  When I tried to manually start the workflow, (hover mouse over title, drop down) there isn’t a workflow option.  The workflow also will not start automatically when a task is changed.


I attached this same workflow to a different task list in production and get the option to start it.


I have tried creating a small workflow in SPD 2007 and attaching it to the task list.  It shows that it is attached, when I look at the workflows that are attached to the task list, but I still don’t get the option to manually start it.

How to return back to a specific page in a gridview list?

Hello,  I have a gridview with paging. So for instance, I'm on say the page number 10, and I open the form details on a specific record_id (link). After I update/submit the form, it returns to page number 10. But, if I go to another page, for instance page 5, and submit the form, it returns to page 10. I've tried some things, for instance history.back(), but it returns to the first page I went to, in this case page number 10 (or whatever the first page I go to). Hopefully this code helps to understand what I'm asking: <asp:GridView DataKeyNames="Referral ID" ID="gvList" runat="server" CellPadding="4"     ForeColor="#333333" GridLines="None" OnRowCommand="gvList_RowCommand"     OnRowDataBound="gvList_RowDataBound" OnRowDeleted="gvList_RowDeleted"     OnRowDeleting="gvList_RowDeleting" AllowPaging="True" PageSize="20"     AutoGenerateColumns="False" OnPageIndexChanging="gvList_PageIndexChanging"    OnRowCreated="OnRowCreated" AllowSorting="True" OnSorting="OnSort"> protected void gvList_PageIndexChanging(object sender, GridViewPageEventArgs e)        {   &nb

Customized list views and permissions to specific group users

Hi, I have created a custom list with 20 field/columns in wss3.0. I had four user groups(group1, group2,....3.....4) in my site collection with various levels of permissions. I have created four custom views (Group 1 view, Group2 view,...etc)in my list. Each view contains only certain fields out of 20. For example group 1 view contains field 1, 5, 7,10 and 13 of every item in my list.  My requirement is that when a user login, who is a member of group1. he should be able to view only Group1 view fields. He should not able to view other field/columns. I tried creating another field/column called as restricted users and wrote group names in that. In the View edit page I selected " show item when the column 'restricted users' is equl to [Me]. But I did not get it. Kindly help it out any one either programmatically or UI based. Thanks   

Filter items with a date column with parameters start date and end date on a sharepoint list?

If I have alist with a view that has the columns Title, Status and Status Date and the view has some items. How Can I add a filter with two parameters, start date and end date, to only show records with status date equal to or greater than parameter start date and status date is less than or equal to parameter end date? This is a sharepoint online site and I can't create and deploy custom code, can use SPD though. Do I need to use SPD or is this something I can do in the list settings? Thanks in advance.   Edit: I had a look here http://www.endusersharepoint.com/2009/09/29/sharepoint-date-filter-filtering-a-list-by-greater-than-or-equal-to-date/ but I don't have the Date Filter web part.

User Alert Management for a specific list versus entire SharePoint site?

It seems that to be able to manage User Alerts, one must have Full Access to the entire SharePoint site - and then use => Site Settings > User Alerts. Ideally, I would like to be able to grant access to users to only be able to manage alerts for a specific list. Is this possible (without having to do any programming) and, if so, how? If such access is only available at the site level, I will simply create a Permission Level that allows one to only "Manage Alerts" Thanks in advance for any assistance. Dave
