How do I parse/serialize when parent list element is missing?

First thank you ahead of time for you help. I really need some help with this. Background, this is to be a REST service in .net 4.0 and I understand I have to use xmlserializer instead of datacontract serializer. The xsd and the generated class assumes there can be one or more geo locations in a Locations element. However, based on an unchangable requirement, I have to assume the parent Locations element may not be there and the xml can contain only one child location element. So instead of <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <findService   xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:lost1"   xmlns:p2="http://www.opengis.net/gml"   serviceBoundary="value"   recursive="true"> <Locations>   <location id="12334456" profile="geodetic-2d">     <p2:Point id="point1" srsName="urn:ogc:def:crs:EPSG::4326">       <p2:pos>40.85614955747385 -73.77044677734375</p2:pos>     </p2:Point>   </location> </Locations>   <service>urn:service:sos</service> </findService> they can send the following instead <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <findService   xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:lost1&

Root element is missing error AFTER changing the List permission


I have an Infopath form that submits the data onto a SharePoint list. Everything works if the user has 'view, insert, edit, delete' access to the list. However, we dont want them to be able to delete and view the item so we gave this user group only 'insert' access. After doing so, they get the following error message:

The following DataObject either cannot be created or cannot be initialized:
The query cannot be run for the following DataObject: NameOfList
InfoPath cannot run the specified query.
The SOAP response indicates that the error occurred on the server:

Server was unable to process request. ==> The root element is missing. 

Anyone know if there's another way to solve this without granting the user group full access to the List?  I'm not an admin, I just normally request what type of permission to set on our sharepoint sites. 

Thanks for the help

Status List WebPart or KPIListWebPart missing when create sites based in a site template that has it


Hi Everyone,

I have a site collection in SharePoint server 2010, and within this site collection I have a site. This site has KPIListWebPart or Status List WebPart. I have added this WebPart through SPD 2010, because through SharePoint you cannot add this particular WebPart.

The problem is the following:

The site (with the Status List WebPart) has to be a Site Template, in order to allow the users to create sites as needed. In the site, the Status List WebPart works perfectly, but when I create a new site based in the site template, the Status List WebPart is missing. 

Any idea why is it happening?


Thanks in advance and best regards,


SharePoint 2010 - Column Validation (List Level) User Message Missing


I first saw this issue being discussed in January 2010 here, but there has not been any response in some time. 

What basically happens is when you set column validation for the list level (not per column) the message that alerts the user that the column does not meet the validation requirements is completely missing.   Both the default message or a custom message do not show up. 

Does anyone know if there is a hotfix for this issue yet?  I would expect more than a year later there would be one, but if so I can't seem to find it.  I would really like to correct this issue as column validation is a nice enhancement over SharePoint 2007.  Thanks in advance for any help.

Ready made List Types provided by SharePoint

SharePoint provides some out of the box List Types. Some of the most used ready made list types that SharePoint provides currently are listed below:

Dropdown list in ASP.NET - How to get value selected

am sure this must be very simple, but unforunately I can't figure it out.
I have the following code which populates the dropdown lists from the database. This works fine. Now, when the user selects a particular employee name from the list, I want to get the Employee Id of the selected employee. i.e. I need to get the "Eid" value. I can do this if the EId is loaded in the dropdown list, but in this case only the employee name is displayed. Please let me know howI can get the Eid value even though it is not loaded in the dropdown list.
I would really appreciate your help

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

Gridview with a dropdown list for editing


Hello. I am working through Scott Mitchell's ASP.Net in 24 hours book. I am finishing the photo album project.

I have a GridView that retrieves a list of uploaded photo rows for the logged-in user.
The GridView is for editing and deleting rows.

The photo Category field in the Gridview is a dropdown list. The text entry field was deleted after converting this field to a Template.

Like the uploaded photos, these Categories are user-specific. They are created in another web page.

Users also have the option to select "none" for the category when they upload an image.

For the GridView:  The Category ID field's ItemTemplate and EditItemTemplate both have a " - None - " choice added to them.

I am getting this error:

'pictureReadOnlyCategories' has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items. Parameter name: value


Note: The ID for the ItemTemplate for that dropdown list is the ID listed above in the error: "pictureReadOnlyCategories".


Am I missing some step in this process of changing a GridViews text field to a dropdown that can be used for editing? I went through the book's instructions three times.

Here is my code for the dropdown list and a screenshot of the Design
