How do I prevent displaying membership of an AD group in Colleague Tracker web part?


I'm a big fan of the Colleague Tracker web part in MOSS 2007 My Sites, especially the option to show 'Membership Changes'. This is often useful in highlighting that a colleague has been added to a certain AD group.

We now want to hide the membership of certain AD groups from the colleague tracker. For example, if an AD group called 'Project X' is created, we don't want membership of the group broadcast throughout the My Sites where colleagues are tracking colleagues.

My first thought was that we could use AD to 'deny read' on the 'Project X' AD group to all SharePoint related service accounts. This does not appear to have worked, although perhaps the configuration is more complex? The best approach would seem to be to prevent the group membership data ever being imported from AD to the SSP, hence my 'deny read' approach.

Has anyone successfully implemented this, or does anyone have any better ideas?


Data form web part not displaying - Unable to display this Web Part. ....



I am designing a data form - adding some formatting etc.  I am able to see the webpart correctly in SPD split view, but when I trying to preview it, it gives me the following error

Unable to display this Web Part. To troubleshoot the problem, open this Web page in a Windows SharePoint Services-compatible HTML editor such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer. If the problem persists, contact your Web server administrator.
ANy help would be welcome, I have spent a lot of time on this page and don't want to do it again.  THere are a lot of fields and it's a tedious process to move them to the correct location.  I am at my wits end, I am not sure how to debug this!!


Displaying a count of records in a Data View Web Part outside the web part itself?

I have a DVWP with 400 rows. I have these inside a Div tag, which makes it scrollable. I also have several URL filters set up to show certain records. I would like to add the count to the page to display the number of records when the filters are activated. I have added the View Footer to the DVWP but this just gets placed at the bottom (still inside the Div tag). It would also be cool to be able to do counts with criteria so I could do comparisons (ie, 50 records overdue/400 total etc). Thanks

XML Viewer web part and SharePoint list RSS feed doesn't work

Hello, When I want to use the XML Viewer web part and set the XML URL to an RSS feed from a SharePoint list I get this error: Cannot retrieve the URL specified in the XML Link property. For more assistance, contact your site administrator. The URL I'm trying looks like this: http://sp2010/_layouts/listfeed.aspx?List=%7B76FD9EEE%2D9354%2D444E%2DBE3C%2DA9AE2C4B2063%7D I've seen blogpost that discuss this and they say that this is because of a security issue and that I have to enable anonymous access in order to display the RSS feed. Is this the only option there is ? I don't want to enable anonymous access on my SharePoint site. Why can't SharePoint just request the RSS feed with the credentials of the logged in user ? Or am I missing something here?

problem with displaying items in list view web part

I have a list view webpart at default display form. Default Display form display items (for example) from the contracts documents library. List view webpart also associated with the same documents library (contracts). In such case this webpart doesn't display any item. But if I add another list view web part associated with warrants document library it display item without any problems. Is it possible to bind list view webpart to another data source for contracts document library? Or maybe another solution? Thanks!

Picture library not displaying full images


Hi there,

I've created a picture library and added a number of our organisations logos to it in jpeg format. Unfortunately end users and I are unable to open the jpegs. I can see the thumbnail image and the preview image but when I click for the full image I get the nasty red 'X'.

I've checked the Permissions which all look fine and the file names have no nasty characters or spaces.

One quirk though - I've added a jpeg picture taken of my colleagues and I am able to see the thumbnail, preview and open the full image!!? For some reason the browser does not like the logos. I'm using IE7.

Any idea why this is happening and how it can be fixed?

Unable to sort RSS feed in Web Part or SP Designer 2007

I have an RSS Moss 2007 webpart to display feeds from http://www.fujitsu.com/uk/news/pr/uk-news-pr-rss.rss but the feed is coming in reverse date order. In Sharepoint designer when I try to sort by pubDate (descending), the sort order is arbitrary and it appears that the feed is being limited in size with the latest post being some 3 years ago.

Any help would be appreciated.

Displaying Images


Hi Guys,

I'm having trouble getting the image path right.

The problem I'm having is that the page is in the following path "~/Login/thumbnail.aspx" and the image I'm trying to display is in "~/Property/xx/xxxx".

What I'm finding however is that site is trying to look for the images in the following directory "http://localhost:50086/xxx/Login/~/Properties/21/100_0365"

My code is:

<img src="~/Properties/<%#Eval("propertyId")%>/<%#Eval("filepath")%>" />

Can anybody see where I'm going wrong?


Displaying backgrounds images in Divs using CSS


After having problems tring to display a background image in a DIV I found out while on another forum that if you are using CSS to display a background image in a DIV, you need to fully qualify the path relative to where your CSS file is located.  The style sheet I was trying to use was in a folder within my App_Themes folder.

The hierarchy was as follows :

Displaying a one-question survey in a web part


Hey all,

I'm trying to display a one-question survey in a web part. I don't want to ever have to use designer when my site's deployed though, I want it to simply display the latest one-question survey, in a web part. So the user creates a survey, and the web part changes automatically - ideally it would show the first question but I could live with the 'standard' survey view with a 'respond to survey' link, even though it's a bit fugly

I've just had a big chat about this here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepoint2010general/thread/14380447-c13f-4365-8423-554595c4b726

The web part resulting from that discussion seems really tailored to the one list and as a result doesn't meet my needs :-(

Any thoughts? Cookies up for grabs :-)

Adding watermark or text to images on uploading or displaying


Is there a way to process images once uploaded to my asp.net site, to put a watermark or some text across the image to copyright the images? I would like to do this server-side if possible.

The other option I have discovered here (http://wpglamour.com/how-to-watermark-all-your-uploaded-images/) would be to store the images as they are on the server, but to manipulate the display so it appears the image is watermarked . However, this solution is in PHP. Does anyone know a good PHP to VB.NET translator?! Or does anyone have a good suggested link, idea or code? Or can I add PHP to my ASP.NET site?

WPF: If Heineken did MVVM Frameworks Part 4

MVVM is to have an instance of a particular Model (say currentPerson) inside my ViewModel (say PeopleViewModel) which is exposed to the View (say PeopleView). The View binds and edits the Model directly.

This definitely flies in the face of what most people consider to be the holy grail of MVVM pattern, but it's a fairly new pattern, so people are still finding their way with it every day, and this works for me very well. The reason I do what I do, is for the following reasons:

1.I have always had the luxury of being able to write my own UI specific Model classes. I would even do this if I was using some other Model classes first, such as LINQ to SQL or LINQ to Entity Framework. As these classes don't have everything a proper WPF Model class needs in my humble opinion. Though, they are pretty good, as they are Partial classes and use INotifyPropertyChanged/DataContract etc etc
2.I am a pragmatist and I do not like writing code for the sake of writing code. I have seen some MVVM apps where the author has had a Model with 50 properties on it, that are simply repeated in the ViewModel abstraction, where the ViewModel added nothing. On that day I decided I would never do that unless I have to.
3.I honestly see no harm in writing directly to the Model from the View, JUST SO LONG AS if the Model is InValid its data NEVER makes its way to the database. I honestly see no pro
