BDC Profile Pages

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I'm running MOSS 2007 I currently have a BDC query pulling a list of all my company's clients out of a program's SQL database that we use. Im using this list to show a list of which tech is in charge of which customer on my sharepoint site. The only part that is pulled out of the database is the client name, the rest is added in the list. Currently when you click on the clients name, it takes you to their BDC Profile page, which has all the info pulled out if the SQL database, like phone#, email address, etc. I understand you can customise the BDC Profile pages, as I've already done that. Now, I want to be able to show some more info on the page, stuff that isnt in my SQL database, eg a link to their folder on our server, some more contact details, etc. How would I go about this? I want the query that pulls that info out to be dynamic, i.e only show info for that certain customer. I've thought about making a separate list on the ssp site, as I don't seem to be able to access anything from the proper sharepoint site when I'm at the profile page. I don't know how to only show the info for the current customer, though.   Can anyone shed some light on this for me? It'd be much appreciated :)

External List Profile Pages

  
I have some external data sources that are related to each other. I created the associations in sharepoint designer, and they all work.  I have a page that has a list of people, that you can search, and when you search for them, it takes you to the profile page that shows the two related lists for that person. This works how I want it. What I want to do has four parts. First, on the initial page that displays my list, I want the primary field (case number) to link to the profile page for that person, instead of the display form. I have tried this with a custom action, but I don't think I did it correctly. Second, on the profile page itself, I have those two related tables that show up. One table is a questionnaire the person filled out, and one is information about interviews they were given.  In the interviews section, I would like the viewer to have an "add interview" button at the bottom, just like any list web part would have. I don't have the option in the web part properties. Finally, on the questionnaire section, I need to alter the view. Right now, there are headings across the top, with the information going left to right. I would like to set it up with a box style, like you can normally do in a list. I would also like to change the field labels from generic field names to more descriptive ones. In addition to that, the questionnaire is entere

Custom Webpart not working on "My Profile" page but works on all other pages. Linq Problem?

  
Hi, I created a publication site and in that site i created pages with specifique metadata (using a pagelayout with a custom content type)0. My webpart is getting data from those pages and displaying it. My webpart works on every page except on the "my profile" page(overview tab). I get the following error: Invalid Url: /TestSites/course I used the SPMETAL to create a class and i'm using this class to retrieve the data from the pages (with linq). The url i give to the entity is http://pcp/TestSites/course  this works fine on every site except on the my profile page. Can anybody help me? Here is the code i use to retrieve my data: EntitiesDataContext ctx = new EntitiesDataContext(courseSite); //Code below gets only the pages with a courses contentType. //EXCEPTION TRIGGERT ON THE FOLLOWING LINE IF IN PROFILE PAGE EntityList<Courses> course = ctx.GetList<Courses>("Pages"); //Writing the query to get the correct pages(with the course page layout only! var Query = from myCourse in course.ToList() where myCourse.CourseParticipants.Contains(myWeb.CurrentUser.LoginName) Select new{myTitle = myCourse.CourseTitle, myCompany = myCourse.Company, myPath = myCourse.Path, myName = myCourse.Name }; Thx.    

Access Denied on Adding to my Colleagues option in profile pages

  
We have an environment that only has profile pages enabled and not personal mysites.  I've noticed that the profile pages are all within one site collection.  How can I give owners of their profile pages the ability to add to their my colleagues without allowing everyone to have rights to edit other profile pages?  This is within Sharepoint 2007 by the way.

Code Optimized Web Development Profile (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

  
When you first run VS 2010 it prompts you to select an IDE profile to use. The profile you select will configure how tool windows are displayed/docked in the IDE by default and set the default keyboard shortcuts. You can then customize any of these settings by using the Tools->Options menu within the IDE and then override/change them. You can also later reset your profile and pick a different one by choosing the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.

High Performance ASP.NET - Speeding Up ASP.NET Pages

  
have been writing a series of blog posts, which I have named High Performance ASP.NET Websites Made Easy! There is no rhyme or reason to the order of these posts and certainly can be read in any order:

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 1 of 2

  
In this first part of the two part series, Steven covers the differences between Site and Application pages in SharePoint 2007, why each may be used in various circumstances, and prepares for the construction of a menu located application page. After a brief introduction he examines the concept of Site Pages and Application Pages separately in detail with supported screenshots.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

  
As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.

Application Vs. Content Pages in SharePoint

  
SharePoint has two types of ASPX pages. One type is the application page, also known as a _layout page. The other type of ASPX page is a content page, also known as a site page. Each of these page types is stored in a different location in SharePoint. When developers create custom ASPX pages, they must decide on the page type.

Master Pages in MOSS 2007

  
'MasterPages' feature in sharepoint 2007 makes the entire customization job easy.In 2003 we used to face lot of issues to get the same look and feel and the standard behaviour for overall site. In 2007, customizing the look and feel for the entire site can be done in a simple way by using 'MasterPage' feature.

How to Pass Values Between Web Pages ASP.NET

  
You can pass information between pages in various ways, some of which depend on how the redirection occurs. The following options are available even if the source page is in a different ASP.NET Web application from the target page, or if the source page is not an ASP.NET Web page:

Use a query string.

Get HTTP POST information from the source page.

The following options are available only when the source and target pages are in the same ASP.NET Web application.

Use session state.

Create public properties in the source page and access the property values in the target page.

Get control information in the target page from controls in the source page.

Websites are getting more interactive these days and most of this interactivity comes from JavaScript. People are using different JavaScript libraries and frameworks to make their websites more interactive and user friendly.

Configuring Profile Image Export in SharePoint 2010

  
It's no secret that I am thrilled with the new social features of SharePoint 2010. I am most excited about the new Profile Picture handling. I strongly believe that the more we can show the faces of our colleagues to one another the more connected we will feel. Clearly Microsoft feels that way as witnessed by the many features that make use of the Profile Image like the Activity Feed and Colleagues list

How to configure IIS 7.0 for ASP.NET Web Pages Razor

  

I'm working on a blog framework using ASP.NET Web Pages with Razor Syntax and I'm having some trouble with URL rewrites. My server is a Windows Server 2008, which runs IIS 7.0. WebMatrix is already installed on the server and .cshtml pages runs without problems, as long as they are named "index.cshtml" I don't have to supply the extension.

What does not work, is when I have URLs that does not correspond to physical files, e.g. website/post/why where the only physical file I have is post.cshtml. With IIS Express, the post.cshtml file is execute but on IIS 7.0 I get a 404 error.

Should I install the URL Rewrite for IIS 7.0? What configuration changes is required?


Hard Code Roles on the Pages

  

If i hard coded role=Manager on the specific SiteMap/Folder/Page/etc. I will have problem when the manager need to remove from access a specific page. I need to change the code ont eh page/SiteMap/Folder more move the file into another folder.


What i have in mind is to change the role to taks oriented. such as role=AddStock, Edit Stock, Delete Stock, Print DO, Add Sales, Edit Sales, Deleted Sales..... (but it will be many role for 1 user compare to just 1 as Manager)


Will this cause performance issues later when each user have 60 roles and if i have 20,000 user will it affect the application performance?


Otherwise any other option? to make it flexible.




Profile not being save after redirect.

  

Hello,

I am trying to save values into a Profile on Page1, then redirect to Page2 and access those values.  However, after the page redirects the profile values are blank as if they were never saved.   When stepping through the code I can see that they are being save on Page 1.

I suppose I could use session variables to store the information but I don't understand why saving the profile doesn't work.

//Page1
private void PayWithPayPal()
    {
        ProfileCommon profile = this.Profile;

        if (Global.CurrentUserName.Length > 0)
            profile = this.Profile.GetProfile(Global.CurrentUserName);
        
        profile.FirstName = uxFirstNameShipping.Text;
        profile.LastName = uxLastNameBilling.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.AddressLineOne = uxAddressLineOneShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.AddressLineTwo = uxAddressLineTwoShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.City = uxCityShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.State = uxStateShipping.Text;
        profile.ShippingAddress.ZipCode = uxPostalCodeShipping.Text;

        profile.Save();
        
        Response.Redirect("~/expresspayment.aspx", false);
    }

//Page2
