Properties.Settings.Default.Save() folder

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
How can I determine or change the location that Properties.Settings.Default.Save() will save my user.config file.  Everything I have seen says it will be stored in a folder based on my application name but in my instance it's including my companies name as well and I cant figure out where it is getting that info from.  I would like to store all my local data in the same place so I want to know where the data will be stored so I can save other stuff there as well.  For example; I have a winform project named XYZApp which generates XYZApp.exe.AssemblyInfo.cs contains the following:[assembly: AssemblyTitle("XYZApp")] [assembly: AssemblyCompany("Software Company International, Inc.")] [assembly: AssemblyProduct("XYZApp")] From what I Read online my user.config should be stored in C:\Documents and Settings\<USER>\Local Settings\Application Data\XYZApp\ However mine appears to be stored in C:\Documents and Settings\<USER>\Local Settings\Application Data\Software_Company_XYZ\ So somehow its picking up the company and only part of the actual application name.  I'd like to have a way to know what the folder is going to be called so i can keep all the data in the same place. Is there a property i can check to determine this?

Personal view reverts back to default after updating properties of item


I am working with a company that has 1 site collection with several sub sites.  I have built 3 document libraries with workflow in 3 different sub sites and all behave as expected.  I have one site where ALL libraries do something perplexing;

If you are in a custom personal view and you go into the properties of a document and then exit (update or not, does not matter) it reverts back to the default view of that library. 

Has anyone seen this?  is there an option when creating an album that could cause this?

thanks in advance for any input on this odd issue.

Instance and Default connection properties on SQL Server 2005

We had a sql server fail and I have been having troubles.  I compared the connection properties on the server properties and noticed that multiple default settings are no longer set.  So I'm wondering if during the failure these could have some gotten flipped.  DB's that worked all of a sudden don't work and we had to migrate to a different instance.  I have never changed any of the setings below and wonder what impact they would have if I changed them back to the default of an installed instance? ansi warning is checked ansi padding is checked ANSI NULLS is checked arithmetic abort is checked quoted identified is checked No Count is checked concat null yields null is checked Could anyone tell me how clearing these checked options will impact my db?   -- Paul Bergson MVP - Directory Services MCITP: Enterprise Administrator MCTS, MCT, MCSE, MCSA, Security+, BS CSci 2008, Vista, 2003, 2000 (Early Achiever), NT4 http://www.pbbergs.com    Twitter @pbbergs Please no e-mails, any questions should be posted in the NewsGroup This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.

Workflow does not save settings

Hi, all! I have created a site on SharePoint 2010 (Team site template). Convigured several approval workflows based on a template of the "Adoption of SharePoint 2010 " for the Shared documents library. Then keep this site as a template. After I have created another site on previous saved this template. That is, the workflows themselves under the same name in the document library are present, but all settings (participnts accounts, the duration of tasks, etc.) - no. How to deal with this? It is necessary that users would not think of workflows settings, and run ready.

What lists and what column types allow for setting "column default value settings"

There is a new setting for lists in 2010 called "Column default value settings". What lists does this setting apply to (I think just lists with a base template of Document Library)? And for what column types is it available? It was available on a "Single line of text" column but not a lookup column. Thanks in advance!

Searching for custom properties in a default search

Hi all, I have added some custom properties in to Manage User Properties in my User Profile Service Application. The issue I'm having is that I'm unable to obtain search results from these properties. For example, if in the Enterprise Search / People tab I enter "Dave" and click search, then I'll be presented with results of people who's name matches "Dave". If I enter "Information Technology" then I'll get a list of all users who's department is "Information Technology". So far we're okay! But let's go back to the custom property. Let's say it's called "Clients" and it is for storing client names against the staff profiles. If I search for "Microsoft" and a user has Microsoft in their client property then no results are found. I've created the managed properties in the Metadata Property Mappings of my search service application, done full crawls but nothing. If I search for "clients:microsoft" then I get results. So the question is how do I or is it even possible to get custom metadata properties to show up in a default search? Thanks!

modify/override properties of default sharepoint modal dialogs (ex. editview.aspx) using javascript

Hello all, I would like to know how can I modify (override) some properties of the default sharepoint modal dialogs using Javascript. Ex. the size and location of editview.aspx. I while ago I asked a question about overriding the DialogResult in the display view dialog. I got an answer from Zach which looked like this:             sb.Append("<script type=\"text/javascript\">");             sb.Append(@"window.setTimeout(function () {");             sb.Append(@"if (window.frameElement && typeof(window.frameElement.overrideDialogResult) == 'function')");             sb.Append(@"{");             sb.Append(@"SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.ui.dialog.js', 'SP.UI.DialogResult.OK', function () {");             sb.Append(@"window.frameElement.overrideDialogResult(SP.UI.DialogResult.OK); ");             sb.Append(@"});");             sb.Append(@"}");  

DataView upload save file goes nowhere. How do you set a folder to upload to? Dynamically?

I have a Dataview bound to Document Library with the New Document button enabled. It apears to upload but can't find the files anywhere. I don't have a Shared Document folder. How and where do you set where to upload the file? A specific folder would be nice and If I could make it dynamic tied to QueryString Ideal. Going a bit further, the library I'm bound to has many 3 digit numeric folders that are dynamically created when entries are added to another list. The page that is calling my dataview has a querystring that will tie into the folder I want to drop files into. Just wondering how I can dynamically set the upload destination. Currently this is the generated code: <input type="button" value="Save" name="btnSave" onclick="javascript: {ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__commit')}" /> <a href="javascript: {ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__cancel;dvt_1_form_insertmode={1}')}">Upload File</a> I have some other code that calls the classic file upload page that is working perfectly, but I'd really prefer the clean and simple UI of the DataView control if I could make it work. Thanks!

save reports in Private and Public folder using Report Builder 2.0

Is there a way to set default style properties for a table or matrix?


We have a company standard we use for fonts, color, background, borders.

Default Column Values in a Document Library (SP2010) do not show up in word 2010 until you save and


when you create a document in a SP 2010 document library (of a particular content type, by clicking new, letter (content type name) in sharepoint for example) which has default values set on in in the library (set by using library settings -> change default column values), the default values do not show up until you create the document , save it and reopen it again.  Is this a bug or by design.  If it is by design, it is horrible since if some of the column default values are mandatory in the content type then you actually have to type them in before you could possibly save the file which defeats the whole point of having default column values.  Also it is tremendously clunky for a user to have to create file, save it , close it, and reopen it just to view the default metadata in the document information panel that is supposed to be there.

Anyone have any thoughts/solutions to this problem?
