Approve/Reject a document using Sharepoint web services


Is there a way to approve / reject a file that has been published on sharepoint 2007 using web services only?

Say there is a document 'A.xls' that was published as a major version by the author. I want the admin to be able to approve/reject it from a site outside the Sharepoint application. I know there is a workflow involved in this, but is there a web service that exposes the functionalities attributed to this workflow?


Problem setting up approve/reject settings in Absence Request and Vacation Management Template

Hi I have recently installed and set up the absence request and vacation management template in SharePoint Services 3.0 and all seems to be going reasonably well apart from one hitch. I have edited the setup workflow so that manager is sent an email on request, employee is sent an email on approval/rejection and payroll are sent an email on approval for their records. However, even though the Personal Vacation option in the Absence Type list is set to Yes for Approval Required, the workflow is automatically sending out the email to say their annual leave has been approved as soon as they request it. Has anyone come across this before or know where I may be going wrong? Thanks for any help you can give. Jo

Is it possible for list item author to initiate versioning?

Does any one know if there is a way to create versions of list items and have that versioning be initiated by the author of the list item?  By default, if you have versioning turned on for a list, a new version is created anytime the list item is edited, even if that editing is something inconsequential happening, for instance some action in a workflow. This makes for a bevy on inconsequentional versions. What would be great is to provide the user with a button on the editform.aspx page that initiates the versioning.  We have MOSS 2007 and I work in Designer.

Missing 'new item templates'


 Hi all,

          I am a 'newbie' to VWD and I am slowly working through the Basic Walkthrough Help files, and learning plenty along the way.

However, when I tried to create a new database in the LINQ control walkthrough I found that the option to create a new database is missing, and further investigation has found that many other new item templates are missing.

I am using a brand new machine with Windows 7 Ultimate and have enabled IIS and .NET from Control Panel-Programs-Turn Windows Features On-Off. I used the WPI to install all basic elements eg. IIS Components, SQL Server Express.

The only 'new item templates' I have when I right-click the App_Data Folder and choose 'new item' are:-

ADO.NET Data Service

AJAX Enabled WCF Service

Dynamic Data Field

SQL Server Database

Text File

XML File

Does anyone know where I have gone wrong.

LINQ to SQL - Validating if item is in Database, but if item is not items not inserting into databas



I am new to this, so bear with me.  I am writing an application in C# that uses LINQ to validate a datacontext off a textbox to see if the record exists already.  If the record does exist I inserted an if statement to advise the user that the record exists, if the record does not exist I would like to allow the record to be added to the database.  If I take out my else statement everything works fine as far as inserting goes, but I do not want to allow inserts in this scenario.  I have tried moving the if and else statement to different parts of the code but can't quite figure this one out.  Any help would be apprecaited, attached is the code.  This code is set to a button press.  As a matter of fact, if you see any other errors along the way please feel free to point them out. 



    protected void enterBTN_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        //make new data context

        SHCDataContext insNewAll = new SHCDataContext();
        //LINQ to check if customer exists in database
        var checkExisting = from c in insNewAll.Customers
                            where c.custLastName.Contains(custLastNameTB.Text.ToString())
                            select c.custLastName;
        //make list to store values

I'm using cssfriendly control adapter for menu. My asp.net menu control's datasource is a sitemap file I'm using which contains all the urls.

ASP.NET 4.0 Menu Top Level selected item style


I want to apply a css class to the level 1 menu item (parent) when it or any or it's children are selected.

I've looked at MSDN documentation and any number of examples and walkthroughs but I haven't come up with a way of managing this. I was thinking something like this might work but the style is not being applied to the parent. To further complicate matters, if I try to apply a css style to StaticSelectedStyle it doesn't pick it up at all.

Menu Markup:

<StaticSelectedStyle  Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#3333CC" />

Code Behind:

        protected void MenuItemClick_NavMenu(Object sender, MenuEventArgs e)


            MenuItem parentItem = e.Item.Parent;

            if (parentItem != null)


                parentItem.Selected = true;
