View previous version of a file in document library using Client Object Model




Using Server-side object model, it is pretty simple to get the previous file versions. Say I wanted to view a file in its initial version, all I’d need to do is :




When using Client object model, I couldn’t any analogous method/property which would let me fetch the previous version of file.

Can somebody point me to a sample or the property which would serve my purpose?

Using the Client Object Model to read values from Excel file produces 504 error



I use the Client Object Model to retrieve and read values from an Excel file. This is triggered in an Event Receiver on the Document Library where the Excel file lives. I use a simple CAML Query to retrieve the file. This has worked just fine on a dev/test server. 
Now, I just recently deployed this solution to a production/live server and now this code doesn't work anymore. I get an error saying 'The remote server returned an error: (504) Gateway Timeout'. This happnes when I try clientContext.ExecuteQuery();

The difference between the two servers is that on the test server (where it works) the solution is sitting as the root site, so to speak. No host headers or nothing.
On the live server, there are several web applications (SharePoint) on the same port, but with different host headers.

I have tried to trace a little bit and I found that on the test server, the url that is used to create the ClientContext object is 'http://<servername>/<webname>'. The url is comes from the following code: web.Url. I tried changing the url to the DNS name the test server has and that resulted in the same error as on the live server.

Does anyone have any idea what I need to do?

Thanks a billion!

Build an Easy Maintenance Intranet Site: Using Office Docs, File System Object, and OLE Structured S


If you've ever needed to build an easy-to-maintain intranet site, here's a solution based on Microsoft Office documents. Many sites require constant updating of their HTML, but the use of Word documents can simplify the process. This article details the construction of a human resources site that exploits the File System Object (FSO), OLE Structured Storage, and ActiveX capabilities of Word documents. This allows the HR staff to copy their revised or newly created Word files to the site, dynamically generate a list of links to their files, and free IS from the constant recoding of HR updates into new HTML pages.

Adding New Column to XSD File Without Remapping existing Transformations

Hello, I am loading XML file using SQL 2005 SSIS and using XSD file for XML Schema defination. Now I have a requirement where I should add couple of new columns in XSD as the XML (MAY) have extra columns for few of its tables. Is it safe to add new columns to XSD and the Map only new columns in Data Flow and all will work? or after I add new columns I need to redesign all mappings as Column order will change. (I think SSIS refere a numeric value for each column, if Yes how can I add new column with less impact)? Thanks, Prabhat Nath

add string in existing resource file


hi there
i need to add a string in a existing resource file
i am trying this but does not work
do you know the problem?

Private Function AddString(ByVal file As String, ByVal result As String)
        Dim language As Google.API.Language = Google.API.Language.English

        Dim resxFilePath As String = file '"c:\files"  

        Using rr As New ResXResourceReader(resxFilePath)
            Dim outputFilePath As String = resxFilePath.Replace(".vb", "") & ".resx"

            Using rw As New ResXResourceWriter(outputFilePath)

Using the XML Source data flow object with one to many XML file


I am trying to use the SSIS XML Source object to insert data from an XML file into a relational database.  Within the file and database there are several one to many relationships.  For example, the Person table has a one to many relationship with the Phone table - one person can have multiple phone numbers. 

In my XML file, the PersonID is declared only once and that is with the person data.  I need the PersonID as a foreign key for the phone data.  The XML Source object displays multiple outputs for the XML file, including one each for Person and Phone.  However the Phone output does not include the PersonID which is required to insert the data into the Phone table. 

How can I get the PersonID to appear with the Phone data?  Is it a matter of modifying the XSD file, or is there method within SSIS where I can combine XML elements from different levels?


savefiledialog and openfiledialog: Selecting existing file or creating a new one


In my application (C#) users need to select existing file or create new file where they want to save some data. Existing files are in read-only mode because they are under Perforce subversion source control. I'm going to handle file checkout in my application automatically after user has selected the file where he wants to save data (or if file is new file, application adds it to source control).

The problem is that I can't use savefiledialog, because it complains about selected file being read-only. I could use openfiledialog, but it has couple problems. First problem is that openfiledialog confirm button has text "Open", which is something i could live with even though it would be better if it read "Save" :)

Second and bigger problem is when you want to create new file in openfiledialog. I set CheckFileExists to false so when user writes file name and presses "Open"-button, openfiledialog doesn't complain about file because it doesn't exist and it returns path to "new" file just fine. But problem is that if user has clicked or selected to some folder in openfiledialog and then writes file name and presses "Open"-button, openfiledialog just opens selected folder.

So basically I just need some file browsing dialog which works like savefiledialog but doesn't complain about read-only, i just need to
