dynamically adding sql server columns based on number of files in fileuploader


I want to create a new table to sql database at runtime.  The column names would be "Name", "Date", "Event".  I would also like to have one more column name "Image" but the problem is that since the amount of images will vary, I want the application to count the amount of files in the Multiple fileuploader and then add a image column to the table for the respected amount of files. 

For example if i am uploading 3 files in the multiple fileuploader, the names should be "Name", "Date", "Event", "Image1", "image2", Image3"

I also would like that table name to be name dynamically from the textbox Name when the user enters the information.


I have the following code to make a new table, but I dont know how to name the fields at runtime like previously asked please help!!!

Embeb a variable number of videos


I need to provide some alternate content for my non-Flash users.

I have a directory of video files that is scanned using the DirectoryInfo() function, and I want to use the results to embed all files ending in ".mov" in QuickTime players on a web form.

How would you approach this? Right now I am using the count on the array of videos to determine how many times to repeat the embed code.  But this seems inelegant.

Is there a way to have a single QuickTime player.ascx control that gets duplicated according to the number of videos available for display?

Article commenting by line number


I'm wondering what's the best way to approach an online article system that allows users to comment by clicking on the line they are commenting about? Essentially the same way Adobe Acrobat works with comments where you can click anywhere and the text is saved for that location.

I'm assuming a mix of jQuery would be the crux of the interface. The system would need to save comments so that when another user logs in, they will also see the other comments but they can´t edit them - only add their own.

Any suggestions would be great.

dropdownbox which selects records based on criteria (TODAY, THIS WEEK, THIS MONTH, etc)

How to show 0 as first number in column


Hi guys. I have two little problem.

I have database with one table and it has 4 rows.

1. I want to show a zero in front of all number. Actually i added but it doesn't show.

2. If i don't put any value in column is it possible to have minus for example instead of 0?




I post it like that because i can't see how to post pics directly.

P.S. The columns with numbers have checked "allow nulls".

I draw in paint so it's not so good but i think it's understandable.

10x in advance.

Crawler fails to register date properties of user profiles with the month of January, April, August


This seems to be a bug when the crawler search the user profiles in MOSS 2007.  When crawled, user profiles with a SPS-HireDate in the months of January, April, August and December will be detected, but a full-text (SQL) search returns those profiles without the HireDate field.

User profiles with HireDates in other months work correctly, returning the HireDate in the search.  And changing the month of a problematic user profile also fixes the problem.

This problem is also reflected in the fact that while we have 499 user profiles using the SPS-HireDate property,  the managed property page from the search section only has 350 items with the HireDate property.

We're running MOSS 2007 32bit with SP2 with an English language base and the Spanish language pack. I'd considered date format problems, but I can't imagine how some months would work, while others wouldn't.

Any ideas?

Applying custom CSS to the MOSS 2007 Calendar control Month view



I have a requirement to use the MOSS 2007 Calendar Control - month view is to apply a custom css to have a look and feel as per our requirements.

We tried applying the custom css to the MOSS 2007 calendar control - month view, it does take the custom css and applies it, but when i click on any date and come back to the calendar control, it changes the CSS of the MOSS calendar control back to the default one.

Let me know if anyone has any suggestion on  how to customize the calendar control for css for our intranet application.

Your response would be highly appreciated.






IIS - sharepoint/default website port number confusion



I have MOSS 2007 installed with IIS V7.

My default web site port is 80. When I created a new web application for my main sharepoint portal I also set it to 80. So obviously now the default web site port shows as stopped in IIS and it won't start.

What are the best practices. Should I change the port number for my portal to something else? I mean is it even a good idea to have sharepoint on port 80? If so, how do I go about changing the port number for my portal site?

any help appreciated.

month days in gridview


 Hello all,

I have a challenge of which I can't figure out how to achieve it.

at this moment I have a gridview that can be dynamicly filled with cell's based upon the number of items selected (throug a drop down list) by a user.

the user then can enter some values in the cells to perform a bulk insert.

What I rather want is that the user selects a month, like august, and then  the gridview is filled with the amount of days from that month, so you get 31 cells in the gridview. second all the first cells should be filled with the daynumber for that day...

I hope the explanation is clear :)


Does anyone know a solution to this?
