Duplicate URLs in Source Parameter of Query String for All SharePoint Lists

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
After performing a database attach method of upgrading our existing web application from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010, all of our lists that migrated now exhibit an interesting but undesirable behavior.  The DispForm.aspx and EditForm.aspx pages that get loaded are given the Source parameter of the query string but instead of the URL being a single entry like: Source=http://sharepointsite.domain.com/Pages/Default.aspx It winds up putting the URL twice like this: Source=http://sharepointsite.domain.com/Pages/Default.aspx,http://sharepointsite.domain.com/Pages/Default.aspx Naturally this makes processing of the form -- either by choosing OK or Cancel buttons -- result in an HTTP 404 error.  The question we're left with is how in the world did the Source parameter get set that way to begin with.   It wasn't that way in 2007. We had thought that perhaps there was something that didn't migrate over correctly for the existing lists, so I tried creating a new list and then added a new item to the list.  So far so good.  Then attempted to Edit Properties or Edit Item or even View Item, etc. -- essentially triggering the load of the EditForm.aspx and DispForm.aspx  -- and we received the 404 again.  At this point we're not sure what's going on or how to fix it.  We've performed the migration three times so far with t

SharePoint Dataview Insert New Mode - Defaulting a Required Column to a Query String Parameter Valu

I've got a SharePoint DataView with an insert button. there is a required lookup column I want to default to the value of Querystring Value during new mode.  Can I do this in the generated code below? I tried replacing @ApplicantId with @QSApplicantID.. and  tried string(@QSApplicantID) too.. no luck gave me an error: The data source control failed to execute the insert command. Could it be that QSApplicantID (which I've used in my DataView Datasource filter with no problem) is not available during the insert? I think I can do what I want in Javascript but was hoping I could instead right in the XSL markup. *my query string parameter**     ParameterBinding Name="QSApplicantID" Location="QueryString(ID)" DefaultValue="2222222"/ **the new form** SharePoint:FormField runat="server" id="ff4{$Pos}" ControlMode="New" FieldName="ApplicantId" __designer:bind="{ddwrt:DataBind('i',concat('ff4',$Pos),'Value','ValueChanged','ID',ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@ApplicantId')}" / **the link** a href="javascript: {ddwrt:GenFireServerEvent('__cancel;dvt_1_form_insertmode={1}')}">Insert</a Thanks for any help or information!

Document Libraries and the query string source parameter



In MOSS 2007 / WSS 3.0 I used to be able to pass a &Source= parameter to the upload page of a document library and it would get carried through to the Document Properties page.  When the user checked-in the document, the user was taken back to the page specified in the Source parameter.

In 2010, the source parameter appears to get cleared and reset between the Upload page and the Edit Properties page - defaulting to the allitems.aspx view.

Has anyone used this technique in SharePoint 2010 and if not can anyone suggest any work arounds for taking a user to a specified location after the document upload process has been completed?

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Kind regards

Duplicate column names from forms in SharePoint lists



I'm in the process of migrating from a WSS 2 site to WSS 3/MOSS. On the old site I used an Infopath 2003 form for absence requests. During the migration I now use Infopath 2007. There wasn't any problem initially when the form was stored with the SharePoint form library. However, when I published the form as a content type from Infopath 2007 and then added that content type to the form library, there are two columns for each piece of data from the form. (One from the content type and one from the form list.) I relinked each old form (list content type) to the new AbsenceRequest content type and removed the original one from the list. However, the duplicate column names are still there. Since they came from the Infopath form, they are not editable or deletable from the SharePoint list management interface. The duplicate column names make it tough to build views since it isn't apparent which column to use in the form building UI. It can be determined form the overview display, but it is very cumbersome.


Does anyone know a way to get rid of the old, absolute, columns?

How to send parameter in query string on ajax call in asp.net mvc


I want to send selected page value on querystring while navigating through paging. URL that is generating on paging are like this

Link/Index?page=2  or Link/Index?page=3

but on my URL it only shows Link/Index and perform Ajax call but if i disable my Javascript and then navigate through paging it gets Postback and have URL like


which is perfect. But i want this type of URL in Ajax call as well how can i do this? Issue is if we navigate through pages when Javascript is enable it shows Link/Index and when user goes to page no 2 then 3 then 4 and press back button it goes to press page instead of page 3 then page 2. For reference if writing the code which generate paging

<%= Ajax.Pager(new AjaxOptions { UpdateTargetId = "divGrid", LoadingElementId = "divLoading" }, ViewData.Model.PageSize, ViewData.Model.PageNumber,
    ViewData.Model.TotalItemCount, new { controller = "LinkManagement", action = "Index" })%>

DFWP query string parameter breaks column header filtering?



We have created a page (using SPD) which accepts a query string parameter to set the data filter for the DFWP. The data is displayed with a basic table layout and "sorting and filtering on column headers" is enabled. But it appears that only the sorting works. When a user clicks on the drop-down for a column header, "Ascending", "Descending", and "Loading..." is displayed. After a few seconds, "Loading..." changes to "Clear Filter" (disabled) but there is no distinct list of values to select as a filter. If we remove the query string parameter from the underlying DFWP query, it works fine. Has anyone else noticed this behavior and/or have a solution?

PerformancePoint 2010 - SharePoint Lists as a data source


I am in the midsts of planning for an upgrade from 2007 to 2010, and we are looking for quick-wins for the client, one of which obviously being PerformancePoint 2010 integration with SPS 2010. So i am tooling around, following some basic tutorials of creating scorecards/kpis/filters/dashboards all from the contoso sample data, which is all fine and well, but my client doesn't have a datawarehouse, and doesn't plan on moving to one.

This puts me in the situation where I need to be able to create these pieces from SP Lists instead of an analysis services DB/DW. I go through and create the data connection, and all seems to be working fine...In the data connection windows, I can click the View tab and preview the data, and actually see all the data thats in the task list I've created and linked to (all demo data, just created a couple of tasks and etc).

Now the trouble comes when I try to create a simple scorecard based off of this list. When I am in the Create tab, and click Scorecard, (Use Tabular > SP List) I can select my data source (Task Tracking Data Source) and thats all well and good.

I then go to the SharePoint Site tab (on the select data source on the wizard), I am able to select my Task Tracking Data source as well. When I get to the KPI scre

Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

Content Query Web Part missing in SharePoint 2010

If you don't see content query web part listed in the web parts list, this is because you have not enabled "Search Server Web Parts" feature in site collection features. Enable this feature and content query web part will show in the list of web parts.

abstract away the source of the connection string using a class with a static property.

ASP.NET provides a configuration system we can use to keep our applications flexible at runtime. In this article we will examine some tips and best practices for using the configuration system for the best results.

The element of a web.config file is a place to store connection strings, server names, file paths, and other miscellaneous settings needed by an application to perform work. The items inside appSettings are items that need to be configurable depending upon the environment, for instance, any database connection strings will change as you move your application from a testing and staging server into production.
