Custom masterpage Layout works fine, but WIDE sharepoint lists flow through, over design

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello all, and thanks in advance for any help. We've built a custom masterpage layout and so far it works great.  We have specified a layout based on tables that fix the width at 960pixels.  The tables are centered on the screen and have a particular background that is different from the page's background to make the content pop.  It works fine in most cases and still displays all MOSSs dynamic contents like the quicklaunch bar at left, etc.  The theme sort of looks like this : http://www.sharepointpackages.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=65&products_id=268&zenid=a045f5b7dba91fdab94d754569e0b611 The problem is that when a list has too many columns and is therefore wider than the 700 or so pixels that are left over for the placeholders inside the table, the list continues on, but does not affect the table itself.  In other words it appears as if the content was placed OVER the tables in the layout.  This is odd first of all, but it is actually bad in a way, because even if I use styles on the table cells that hold these placeholders, and have the overflow use scrolls, the table ACTUALLY does not see an overflow and the contents continue to run through without activating the scrollbars (they don't even show up).  Can anyone help.  Please, Please, I've been looking at HTML for two days straight now trying to fi

How to create a custom page layout in sharepoint foundation 2010



I need to create a custom page layout in sharepoint foundation 2010.

I am aware that wss 3.0 and sharepoint foundation do not have the publishing infrastructure.

I need to know if the same procedure that is used to create custom web part pages in WSS 3.0 is to be used in SharePoint foundation too or are there other ways.

I am relatively a fresher to sharepoint technology.Please help.

Thanks in advance:D.


Sharepoint Foundation - Create and deploy custom edit/view forms for external lists


Firstly, we are using sharepoint foundation so Infopath forms are not an option for us.

We have a Visual Studio sharepoint project which deploys a complete sharepoint site. The site contains a number of external lists and we want to be able to create customised view/edit forms for these lists and add them to our Visual Studio project so they can be deployed as part of the new site. The idea is that we can deploy the solution to a fresh site with a default set of forms which can then be customised for different implementations of the site.

Here's the steps we have been using to try and do this:

1. Deploy the base project (BDC) to the sharepoint site

2. Create external lists based on the BDC content types

3. Use Sharepoint Designer to create new edit/view forms for the lists and set these as the default forms for the list

3. Save the site as a template

4. Import the template into a new Visual Studio project and select the lists we require. This gives us a List Definition, a pages module (with element file), an elements file and a schema file (both for the List Instance).

5. We then add the contents of the imported project to our main solution as follows:

  • Create a new List Definition (including List Instance)
  • Copy the contents of the imported Elements.xml to the Elements file for our List Instance.

Selecting custom masterpage in Sharepoint Foundation 2010 - where and how?


I'm now building a test site just to research on Sharepoint Foundation 2010.  As I know, on previous version (SP2007), we have to install a 3rd party tool to enable selecting a masterpage for WSS 3.0.  And here, the new version Foundation 2010 too, does not has this feature.  So, if I have customised 2 masterpages and would like to apply into two different sites in the same port, how can I apply my custom masterpage?  Unfortunately, the 3rd party tool does not compatible to the Foundation 2010.  I think this is the weakness of WSS3.0 and Foundation 2010, especially when we are requested to have more than 1 masterpage to be applied into the sites.

Does anyone know any way to make Foundation 2010 to enable the masterpage selection?

SharePoint 2010 Custom Page Layout - No Publish option available



We built several custom page layouts in MOSS which we are upgrading to SharePoint 2010. If the page layout has custom code behind, the "Publish" tab is not available in the Ribbon. But if we change the Inherits attribute of the Page Tag to default "Micrsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.PublishingLayoutPage", we see the Publish Tab.

For example if the custom page layout has <%@ Page Language="C#" Inherits="Custom Namespace,Custom Assembly,Version=,Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken="
    meta:progid="SharePoint.WebPartPage.Document"  %> , we dont see the Publish Tab in the ribbon.

The code from the code behind file executes when we access the page.

But if we change the Page Attribute to the default

<%@ Page Language="C#" Inherits="Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing.PublishingLayoutPage,Microsoft.SharePoint.Publishing,Version=,Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c"
    meta:progid="SharePoint.WebPartPage.Document" %> , we see the Publish Tab.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.




Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

Write Custom WebParts for SharePoint 2007

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).
