Links list with visual preview

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi all, I would like to have a links list wich a preview of each link. Like the SearchPreview addon for Firefox : http://www.autourduweb.fr/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/search-preview.jpg I saw an example in Sharepoint : http://www.wssdemo.com/Pages/topwebsites.aspx (but the site seems to be off now...) Any idea ? Thanks Guillaume

Trying to move FK links from list as columns to my navigation area.



I'm using vs2010, EF. I have a left column simular to a navigation area and I'm trying to figure out a way to display the FK links that appear at the end of a list as columns, in my navigation area.  One thought was to place a duplicate table in the navigation area and hide all the columns except for the FK links. Is there an easier way to accomplish this.

Thanks, Jeff


Problems using links in Visual Studio development

I've recently inherited a website which has two versions, one which runs on IIS and one which runs in the Visual Studio development environment, and there are a few differences in the way the website runs on the two of them which I'm confused about.The relevant code files for the IIS server version are kept under wwwroot, and I can open the website in Visual Studio and it works fine.However, there is a local development environment version of the website, which contains a copy of the same folders, and additionally a solution file. However, there are a number of problems with this version of the website, despite the fact the code is the same. Firstly, none of the images specified in the html tags are displayed correctly, even though I have checked that the images are in the project's directory in the location specified by the image's src attribute, just like they are in the IIS server version.The other problem is that none of the links work. I've noticed that for both the IIS server version of the website and the fileserver version, when the website first loads it calls Application_BeginRequest() in Global.asax.However, when the links are subsequently clicked, it only calls Application_BeginRequest() in the IIS server version -the fileserver version does not call this and just gives a 404 page not found error.I'm new to web development, so I'm not sur

How to use SharePoint 2007 list data in Reporting Service (Visual Studio) 2008?

Jeez - I have been googling left and right, and tried all the suggestions. No luck in getting it to work. I am using Reporting Service 2008 tools in my VS2008, trying to create a simple report using SharePoint 2007 data (from a simple list). Here is what I've been doing: Created a simple SharePoint list in a test site - only one column (Title) with one record of data. Started Visual Studio 2008 and created a new Report Server Project Wizard project. I named the data source "dsTest". Type: "XML". As connection string I used: http://site/subsite/subsite/_vti_bin/lists.asmx. Credentials: "Use Windows Authentication (Integrated Security)". Clicked Next and arrived at the "Design the Query" form. I entered this in the Query string box: <Query> <Method Namespace="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/" Name="GetListItems" /> <SoapAction>http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/GetListItems</SoapAction> </Query> Clicking Next I get this error: An error occurred while the query design method was being saved. Failed to execute web request for the specified URL. Soap Fault: Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown. Now if I view the Details when trying it inside the Query Builder I get this: <errorstring xmlns="http://schemas.mi

SSRS 2008 formatting issue - different in visual studio preview/pdf/excel vs. internet explorer


The formatting of the report is perfect when viewed in Visual studio and also after exporting it to pdf or excel. But when I deployed my solution and opened it on IE/Firefox there is a lot of problem in formatting. Specifically the row height is giving me a problem. I manually entered them to be 0.1in and made the CanGrow field as false to force that row height but some rows in the tablix expand ( to 0.15in, which is the height of my header). This is true for a matrix as well. Is there is a feature to lock the row height in IE o any other web browser?


CSS Positioning shows as centered in Visual Studio 2008 preview area but off to the left when shown


	background-image: url('images/bodyBG_Home.jpg');
	background-repeat: no-repeat;
	background-color: #BBBBBB;
	margin: auto;
	width: 960px;
	margin: auto;
	width: 960px;
	height: 860px;	

The above code shows how I tried to center the #header and #body elements. When viewed in the preview region of Visual Studio 2008 everything looks perfect. Unfortunately when I view it in the browser both the header div and body div are off significantly to the left.

I have no idea what to do. :(

List Event Receiver in Visual Studio 2010 Received "Save Conflict"


Here is the code. ItemUpdated was looped multiple times that caused the error shown below the code.  I Google the error and one suggestion was adding "if (properties.AfterProperties["vti_sourcecontrolcheckedoutby"] == null && properties.BeforeProperties["vti_sourcecontrolcheckedoutby"] != null)" will prevent the loop. The problem was both properties.AfterProperties["vti_sourcecontrolcheckedoutby"] and properties.BeforeProperties["vti_sourcecontrolcheckedoutby"] were always null. Any ideas?

Error "List does not exist" trying to insert pictures or links from Content Editor WebPart


I have put a Content Editor WebPart on a page and I'm trying to insert a picture from the Rich text editor, but whenever I try this I get this error:

List does not exist.

The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.

This also happens when inserting links. When I use Fiddler I can see that the error occurs somewhere in AssetPortalBrowser.aspx and It's likely that the last location used to insert pictures and links no longer exist. So the question is how do I reset the location to point to a list on the current site, or any other list for that matter? I tried deleting and adding the WebPart on the page without any luck. Typing in a valid link in the link text box or setting the attribute "DefaultToLastUsedLocation" to "false" in the call to AssetPortalBrowser.aspx did not work either. I read the solution at http://mossipqueen.wordpress.com/2008/08/08/assetportalbrowser-error-list-does-not-exist/ (de- and re-activate Office SharePoint Server Publishing feature) but the feature is not activated on my web. Does anyone have a tip on what to do? This happens on a live SharePoint environment so there may be some restrictions as to what I can
