Unable to enter the product key in the Convert License Type page (textbox is read-only)

We installed both WSS and MOSS SP2 and had planned to follow the manual fix for the known issue that the patch unexpectedly activates a trial expiration.  However, the textbox to enter the product key is read-only.  We have tried accessing this page using the normal administrator credentials as well as the farm account; no success.The SP2 issue and manual fix is detailed here, http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/971620We were able to experience this problem on a farm running the Feb 2007 cummulative patch (version so it's not related to the SP.  But running the SP increasing the need to find the fix.Any help is appreciated,J.

Type-Sensitive display of a Model.

Say I have a Form model which contains a list of Field objects loaded from a database. Each field object has a type that defines whether it is a listbox, combobox, input or textarea.What would be the best way for displaying the Field objects correctly? I was thinking in my View using a switch statement and calling a specific partial depending on the case.<% foreach (var field in model.GetFields()){ switch(field.Type){ case "T": Html.RenderPartial("PartialView", field); break; ...... } }%>Is this a valid approach? What other methods would people recommend to do this?Thanks

User Control Web Part - The type initializer for 'IBM.Data.DB2.DB2Connection' threw an exception.



I need help, in our SharePoint 2007 project we have created Web Part using VS 2005 & .Net 2.0, User Control. In the user control for one of the drop down list box databinding method we are using data from IBM DB2. It works fine on our local machine, but after Web Part deployment if i open the page then the Drop Down List is empty. I checked the log in the event viewer. I found the following error message in the vent viewer -

Web Part property of type "Managed Metadata"


I want to build a custom web part where the user filters the results by selecting a term from a managed metadata property. I want this property to appear in that "Edit Web Part" property panel.

I know if I want to expose a simple string property, I just add the following attributes:




WebDescription("Select the category to filter your results.")]

public string Filter{





How do you do the same thing...but with a managed metadata datatype?

(Not to confuse the question...but the managed metadata datatype I want to show is defined as a Site Column. How can I expose that to a web part property?)


Any help would be appreciated.

BDC Model / External Data Type Security - Getting a SqlException


Hello All :)

I have some BDC models setup and they're working great. A problem arises when anyone else tries to see the models on my virtual machine.
We're all on the same domain. I have created a number of web parts that have lists bound to the bdc models. When another user on the network attempts to view these webparts, I can see the following in the SP logs;

MVVM and Entity Framework - where is the Model part?



I am using Entity Framework to connect to MS SQL (Azure). I have a WPF application, and I am using MVVM. But...where is my Model layer? Right now I have made the 'traditional' Model layer, which then translates the Entity Framework into new objects. That works, - but I am missing out of all the implicit benefit of Entity Framework! If I pulled a collection directly from the Entity Framework to the the ViewModel, I could then work on the collection (add, delete, update) and then just run SaveChanges() on the connection and it was a done deal. But right now it is the object in the Model layer that I work on, and then in this object I have to add, delete or update another object in the database through Entity Framework.

To get the benefits, should I just skip all the extra objects in my Model layer and make the Entity Framework a part of the Model Layer (although it is also a data access layer, of sorts)? Or is there a way to pass the Entity Framework objects through the Model layer smoothly so I still maintain the wonderful SaveChanges() functionality?



How can I reuse Model Metadata for custom View Models?



I'm working on an ASP.NET MVC 2 project with some business entities that have metadata dataannotations attributes applied to them (Validation attributes, Display attributes, etc.).

Something like:

//User entity
public class User

[Required(ErrorMessage = "Vorname fehlt")]
[StringLength(MaxNameLength, ErrorMessage = "Vorname ist zu lang")]
public string FirstName { get; set; }

Need an MVC Guru !!! Best Practice to have multiple Strongly Type Models ...inside a single View ??


So far I've seen demos of MVC that have simple pages, one for login, one for register, one for listing a table ...

In order to understand better the transition for WebForms developers into MVC patterns, I would like to understand how can I put together multiple CONTROLS (like the one provided by the default MVC project that VS2010 creates for us ...and make it work.

OK so as an example, imagine we want to change the LogonUserControl.ascx to allow us to login (so to show UserName and Password textboxes and Logon button) from the Home Page.

1) We update the Control as follow:

2) We update the HomeController.cs file to handle the Logon Button Post event as follow:


We needed to move some code from AccountController to HomeController in order to get the control to work under the Index view. So ...with little luck it seems to work !!!

Now the problem happens when you navigate to the Register view, considering that now we are not any longer on the HomeController "domain" but we are under AccountController.

Register page shows perfectly and

Assigning External content type field column value using Client Object Model


I have a problem assinging External column value to ListItem object with client object model-based application I'm developing. To be precise, I am able to retrieve data related to external content type by reading external list created from this content type but I don't know how to properly use it to assign value to this field. By doing some research on my own I concluded that BDC ID column from external list is the way to go since it uniquely defines selected row from external list but that doesn't tell me much since I don't know what to do with it. Currently I ended up with partial solution - to assign plain string value of picker column but that makes this value visible only in "View Properties" option on Sharepoint and not in "Edit Properties" which pritty much makes sence since it isn't properly related to rest of the data in specific row. Does someone have a better solution for this?

WPF: If Heineken did MVVM Frameworks Part 4

MVVM is to have an instance of a particular Model (say currentPerson) inside my ViewModel (say PeopleViewModel) which is exposed to the View (say PeopleView). The View binds and edits the Model directly.

This definitely flies in the face of what most people consider to be the holy grail of MVVM pattern, but it's a fairly new pattern, so people are still finding their way with it every day, and this works for me very well. The reason I do what I do, is for the following reasons:

1.I have always had the luxury of being able to write my own UI specific Model classes. I would even do this if I was using some other Model classes first, such as LINQ to SQL or LINQ to Entity Framework. As these classes don't have everything a proper WPF Model class needs in my humble opinion. Though, they are pretty good, as they are Partial classes and use INotifyPropertyChanged/DataContract etc etc
2.I am a pragmatist and I do not like writing code for the sake of writing code. I have seen some MVVM apps where the author has had a Model with 50 properties on it, that are simply repeated in the ViewModel abstraction, where the ViewModel added nothing. On that day I decided I would never do that unless I have to.
3.I honestly see no harm in writing directly to the Model from the View, JUST SO LONG AS if the Model is InValid its data NEVER makes its way to the database. I honestly see no pro
