Membership web part 'Object Expected' error

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have placed a Membership Web Part on my 'My Site'/'My Content' page and everything was working just fine until the number of memberships supassed the total number that the control is set to display. When this happened, a link appeared at the bottom of the web part with the following wording 'Show 8 additional memberships'. When I click on this link I receive an 'Object Expected' javescript error. When I look at the code that is generated on the page the <a></a> tag for this link appears as follows ... <a class="ms-vb" id="1SPS_MEMMICSRCHRES_Link" href="javascript:ShowHidePrivacyRow('SPS_MEMMICSRCHRES','1', '1SPS_MEMMICSRCHRES_Link', 'Hide 8 additional memberships', 'Show 8 additional memberships');"> When I do a search for the ShowHidePrivacyRow() function it does not appear on the page and I can not seem to find it in any of the SharePoint out of the box .js files either. Could this be the cause of the 'Object Expected' error? If so, how do I solve this and why is an out of the box web part causing javascript errors. This is something I would expect from a product that is still in Beta, not a production release.

Jscript error: Object does not support property or method


 Hi, i have little knowledge on javascript but i need to use this code get from somewhere for a jquery to work.

I face this "Jscript runtime error: Object does not support property or method" whenever im trying to run this page.

In my experience, im get this error msg 9 out of 10 times i use javascript in my system.

Im using Microsoft Visual web developer 2008, i wonder if this is related to my problem, i not sure there is anything i need to add as reference or update anything.

But anyway, in short, i just couldn't use javascript code when using this development tool because of this sort of error.

Anyway, it happen that last time i tried use the same type of jquery code in another project and it seems to work well without an error.

But now when im try to use it again in this recent project i created, it come out with this error and i have no idea how to solve it even look through google and this forum.

It doesn't really seems like its the code problem itself although im not sure, because any javascript code just couldn't work.

So below is my code that i need to use.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js" ></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=&quo

Pass ASP.NET membership identity object across domain?


I am trying to figure a way to SSO with ASP.NET membership and role model.

I can implement custom membership provider which consume web services hosting on a server.

With encryption of data. No problem.

But my question is, If I sign on a website with my provider, got my identity object on that application,

could I pass it to another website on another domain which use the same provider and by doing so, do not need to login again?

If this is possible, I am going to implement this solution. Please tell me what's your take on this.

Registering controls of current assembly object reference NOT set error


Hi There,

I have created a simple ASP.net Web Application (2.0) and have added a web user control.

Now in my page I have added this control but I have registered like this,

<%@ Register Assembly="WebApplication1" Namespace="WebApplication1" TagPrefix="Custom" %>

Which means I want to access all the controls in my current Web Application project

Then I have added my user control like this,

<Custom:MyUserControl ID="MyUserControl1" runat="server" PublicProperty="Hello" />

Every thing is fine but when I execute the project, NO control on my user control gets "instantiated" and thus I receive error "Object Reference Not Set"

Note that My Control has,

1) Public property PublicProperty as String

2) 1 Label control

In Load Event Handler I am setting Text property of Label Control to PublicProperty. Here object reference NOT set error occurs (which means Label control is NOT initialized).

I don't want to register my control using Src, TagPrefix etc. Any ideas?


.NET Exceptions: Make the Transition from Traditional Visual Basic Error Handling to the Object-Orie


If you're used to Visual Basic 6.0 and you're making the transition to Microsoft .NET, you will find that error handling is quite different from what you've used for years. Visual Basic .NET uses a more object-oriented solution to signaling and responding to unexpected problems while your program is running. This approach, called structured exception handling, has a number of advantages over the On Error statements provided in previous versions of Visual Basic. For instance, exceptions give you lots more information about exactly what went wrong in your app. To help you take advantage of this modern error handling paradigm, this article will show you how to raise and respond to exceptions, as well as how to create your own custom exception classes.

FileUpload error: Object reference error


I have a FormView with a FileUpload to upload an image in a database.

I keep getting an object reference error.(view code)

I am using this same script to upload the image to the database, but when I try to update the file upload I get the error.    

string strFilePath=Server.MapPath("\\images\\"+fupdImage.FileName);

        Byte[] image=null;
        HttpPostedFile imgVid=FileUpload.PostedFile;

        image=new Byte[imgVid.ContentLength];//Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

How do I prevent displaying membership of an AD group in Colleague Tracker web part?


I'm a big fan of the Colleague Tracker web part in MOSS 2007 My Sites, especially the option to show 'Membership Changes'. This is often useful in highlighting that a colleague has been added to a certain AD group.

We now want to hide the membership of certain AD groups from the colleague tracker. For example, if an AD group called 'Project X' is created, we don't want membership of the group broadcast throughout the My Sites where colleagues are tracking colleagues.

My first thought was that we could use AD to 'deny read' on the 'Project X' AD group to all SharePoint related service accounts. This does not appear to have worked, although perhaps the configuration is more complex? The best approach would seem to be to prevent the group membership data ever being imported from AD to the SSP, hence my 'deny read' approach.

Has anyone successfully implemented this, or does anyone have any better ideas?

please verify it. 

Calculated Columns in a Form Library receive error: Value does not fall within the expected range.


I have a forms library that posts the date the form was created. We would like to create a calculated column that allows us to look at these forms based on the month and year they were created. I had created a calculated column that extracts the month and replaces the number with a text string by using an if statement; "IF(MONTH([Proposal Date])=1,"January","") It goes on to evaluate each month and replace the number with the text string. This formula worked for quite some time, though now when I try to add any calculated columns or edit any existing calculated columns on this form library I receive the following error: Value does not fall within the expected range. Now my existing calculated columns (like the one above) do not work and I can not create new calcualted columns. Any insight would be awesome as this has been plaguing me for a couple of months now.

SharePoint Calendar Error: The "ListViewWebPart" Web Part appears to be causing a problem. Index was

In one specific SharePoint calendar, on one specific week in that calendar when we select the "more items" link in the monthly view (or the expand all option) we get the following error:
The "ListViewWebPart" Web Part appears to be causing a problem. Index was outside the bounds of the array.

Web Parts Maintenance Page: If you have permission, you can use this page to temporarily close Web Parts or remove personal settings. For more information, contact your site administrator.

If we select a different week the expand and collapse works fine in that calendar.

Web Part working fine on the top-level page but 'Not Safe' error on lower-level pages.


I have created a Web Part which reads and parses the SharePoint logs in order to display usage information of the page it resides on.  The Web Part works perfectly on the top page, reading and displaying the information desired.  However, once the Web Part is added to any page lower in the site heirarchy (sub-page) the same Web Part throws the following error:

Web Part Error: A Web Part or Web Form Control on this Page cannot be displayed or imported. The type could not be found or it is not registered as safe.

Of course the current version of the Web Part is in the SafeControls list on the web.config.

The Web Part was originally designed to return site activity only for the top default.aspx page and worked fine but started to fail in the manner described above once I added the following line of code to return a SPCo
