How to align text to top position on Ribbon buttons?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello SharePoint Experts, I have a custom masterpage which is derived from v4.master and it uses the default SP Foundation 2010 Ribbon. As you all know,the default Ribbon buttons such as New Document,Upload Document,Alert Me,etc, have text at the bottom below the icons. Ribbon buttons such as CheckOut,CheckIn,etc have their text aligned to the right of the icons. My requirement is to have all the text on Ribbon groups and buttons aligned to the top such that the image is below the text.(By default it is the other way round). I tried manipulating the CMDUI.XML file located at 14\TEMPLATE\GLOBAL but no use. I also tried overriding the Ribbon CSS(from COREV4.CSS) but it was of no use as well. Does anyone have inputs on how to get this done? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.Regards, Gautam Kaikini, MCTS WSS 3.0 Application Development.

Cannot enable Ribbon Edit Tab buttons and "connect" them to a list item in my custom webpart

I have one list with some custom fields and I want to develop a custom page. So, I created an ASPX page and added my custom webpart. This webpart has just a RichTextField, in edit mode, "linked" to one item of the list, like below: SPSite _SPSite = SPContext.Current.Site; SPWeb _SPWebProjects = _SPSite.OpenWeb("/Projects"); SPList _SPListProject = _SPWebProjects.GetList("/Projects/Lists/Project"); int _ID = Convert.ToInt32(this.Page.Request.QueryString["ID"]); RichTextField _RTF = new RichTextField(); _RTF.ID = "RTF"; _RTF.ControlMode = SPControlMode.Edit; _RTF.FieldName = "History"; _RTF.ItemContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); _RTF.RenderContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); this.Controls.Add(_RTF);   Then, I "turned on" the edit tab on the ribbon by doing the follow: protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e) { SPRibbon _CurrentRibbon = SPRibbon.GetCurrent(this.Page); _CurrentRibbon.TrimById("Ribbon.WebPartPage"); _CurrentRibbon.MakeTabAvailable("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.MakeContextualGroupInitiallyVisible("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.Minimized = false; _CurrentRi

Disabled buttons have blue text. How do I change?


I have an app that has black text on silver buttons.  When a button is disabled, it changes the background color as one would expect, but it changes the text to blue.  This is not what Outlook is doing.  In Outlook the disabled buttons have gray text.

Any idea why my disabled button's text is being made blue instead of gray and how to i make it follow the way the other windows apps are working?  I want gray text for disabled buttons.  BTW, visual styles are turned on.

Align text in label and radiobuttonlist


I have an asp label and asp radiobuttonlist on the same line and need to get the text to align.  I understand the rbl renders as an html table.  The table appears to have spacing around the td elements, which pushes the text down.

Here's my code and CSS.  How can I get the text to align in a way that will work across browsers, text size and resolution settings?


	font-size: 1.2em;
	line-height: 1.4em;
	vertical-align: top;

	font-size: 1.2em;
	line-height: 1.4em;
    border: solid 1px black;

.RadioButtonList td
    border: solid 1px black;

    float: left;
    padding: 0em 0em 0 0.5em;

#tableadjusterContainer span
    float: left;
    border: solid 1px black;


        <div id="tableadjusterContainer">
            <asp:label ID="llbMissing" runat="server" Text="Show missing responses?" CssClass="Label"></asp:label>

How to hide ribbon buttons in a publishing webpart page?



I'm trying to hide some ribbon buttons from a publishing web part page(a page thats url ends with: /pages/default.aspx), and i just can't seem to do it.

SP2010: Ribbon: How to use Text Box?


Hi there, we're taking advantage of the Issues Tracking lists on a number of project sites using SP2010. I've created a VS2010 solution that adds a new group with a Label and TextBox control and that works great.  Problem is, when my JavaScript CommandUIHandler runs, I have no idea how to access what the user actually typed in to build the URL to the issue ID, and couldn't find documentation on it.

Any ideas?




Text on buttons appears fine on Windows 7 machine but is partially chopped off on Windows Server 200


I have an application that was developed in Visual Studio 2010 on a Windows 7 machine. When testing from any Windows 7 machine, all is well - the text of the buttons are showing fine. However, when I try to run the same application on a Windows Server 2008 machine, the end of the text (right side) is chopped off. Does anyone what may cause this?

I have done research and found some info about default fonts, but this does not apply here because all needed fonts are on both machines. I have also found an article at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb756969.aspx that mentions that the DPI scaling may be causing this issue. The DPI scaling is set to 96 on the development machines (WIndows 7), but I cannot view the DPI on the WIndows Server 2008 machine. If the latter is the likely problem, can someone please point me towards a solution for this problem?

Any help would be appreciated.

As now, Radio buttons are HTML controls, I am not able to get it on server side. When user select any radio button and press submit, Control will not available at code behind, you can use "e.Item.FindControl" as it is not "runat='server'". I want ID "Primary Key" value for selected radio button. To achive this I took the help of Javascript. I wrote javascript function that sets the values of "Primary Key" in hidden field when user clicks on any radio button. Now when user clicks on Submit button, user can get selected value froim hidden field.
