Any way to filter group or limit the view with recurring events??

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
It seems that recurring events (in Events view) cause greatlimitations in the views available. For example filtering or groupingon the start date of events does not work.I tried to use a calculated column that makes a 'Start Date' of theStart Time in order to filter on it, but the result is that only thefirst date of a series of a recurring task is shown, which of courseis useless.It seems that the Calendar view is the only way to limit views in day/week/etc.Did anyone else come up with an acceptable way to group or filterrecurring events?  Specifically filtering these recurring events by Week and Month.

Calendar View: Unable filter Recurring Event by Start/End Time and Group by Recurring Event View

Hi All,
I have just found several issues with Calendar View from WSS 3.0:

Unable to filter by [Start Time] and [End Time]
I am not sure why these 2 columns doesn't appear in the Filtering column in the View Settings. The workaround found in the internet is to create calculated column for Start Time and and End Time. However, it doesn't work for Recurring Event, the calculated column will show only first recurring event Start Time.

Unable to use "Group By"
When I create new view in Calendar using format: "Standard View, with Expanding Recurring Events", there is no option to specify "Group By". Anyone knows how to show all recurring event in List view and grouped by Start Time (or any other column).

Thank you and apprecate for any idea.

How to filter view using ListViewXML with group by option?

I try to filter my view in list using ListViewXml property. The view has group by section. After implementing a filter for the view data under groups are the same(not filtered), but group rows show quantity of rows for each group  like filter is implemented. So it works well without group by.    XmlDocument document = new XmlDocument();  document.LoadXml(webPart.ListViewXml);  XmlNode queryNode = document.SelectSingleNode(".//Query");  XmlNode whereNode = queryNode.SelectSingleNode(".//Where");    if (whereNode != null)     {        whereNode.InnerXml = query.Query;      }   else       {        queryNode.InnerXml += "<Where>" + query.Query + "</Where>";        }  webPart.ListViewXml = document.InnerXml;    

Filter recurring events in Sharepoint

I have seen many people with the same problem but with no solution.

I am trying to show only the Calender events for the next 7 days, but creating a custom field and setting it to the Start Time and then filtering it doesnt work for recurring events since the recurring events are really only stored as one record ...

Any help will be appreciated.

Dynamic Data Foreign Key Filter - how to limit the # of dropdowns on the list view



I have a visual basic website in VS 2010 framework 4, linx to SQL, with scafolding.... and this dataclass has about 10 foreign key fields, of which all 10 are shown in the list view of the website.  I want the ability to exclude those filters from the list view (or exclude some and keep some), but without eliminating them from the edit forms.  Using <scafoldingcolumn("False")> does the trick to remove them entirely but that will also remove them from the grid/list itself, which I don't want, and remove the column from the edit record views, which I don't want either.

Any help would be great!!!!

Issue in Infopath 2007 browser form - cascading dropdown using owssvr.dll filter view


Referring the below link, I created a cascading dropdown. The parent dropdown has sharepoint list as datasource and the child dropdown has xml datasource that points to owssvr.dll filter view. The cascading drop down works fine in preview but throws error after publishing as admin approved form - "form cannot run the specified query" exception when trying to execute xml datasource i.e., when a value is selected in parent dropdown. The security is 'Full Trust". In the event viewer the error message states "401 unauthorised" for the user a/c. the xml data source is an approved udcx file and in central admin, have enabled cross domain for infopath service. I have tried different solution provided in tech forums but issue still exists. Not sure whether Im missing something. Can someone guide me in fixing this issue?

SharePoint Recurring Events

I must be a dummy, but can't figure this out.  I am setting up a recurring event such as shown below in SharePoint WSS 3.0: Delivery Date - 11/10/2010; Start Time - 2 PM; End Time - 3 PM; Recurrence - Make this a repeating event; Pattern - Monthly and "The second Wednesday of every 1 month"; Date Range - Start Date of 11/10/2010; and End after 10 Occurrences. In the calendar, the event shows up on 11/10/2010, and in the data sheet view it has an end 8/10/2011.  There are no entries being shown in the calendar for any month other than Aug 2010. I wanted it to show up every month in the calendar between Nov 2010 and Aug 2011 at 2 PM on the second Wednesday.  What am I doing wrong?  

scrollbar is not showing for sharepoint list with group by view

Hi, have created a Share point 2007 list having a huge data. I have created a group by view by grouping the data with category. My requirement is to show the data as web part on a page. When i did so, while expanding the group inside the web part, the web part is expanding. I want to keep the height and width of the web part fixed so that the layout of the page will not be ugly looking. But though I am putting the option for fixed height and width in the web part setting but I am not able to see the scroll bars. Where as I can see the height and width are fixed but could see a few data instead of all the data with scroll bar.   Please advice me if there is any solution or workaround.Deeptyranjan

Handling Events in Reporting Services View Contol

Hi There, I want to handle events like Key Stroke (OnKeyPress, OnKeyDown, OnKeyUp) or events like "Parameters Loaded", "Query Execution Begin", "Query Execution End", "Report Execution Begin", "Report Execution End" etc in the Report Manager View Control. Where can I find documentation on the possible events, e.g. I know I can code an OnInit procedure in the code block of the report. But how for example do I code the OnKeyDown procedure? I have tried: References: System.Windows.Forms Sub MeKeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles Me.KeyDown msgbox("MeKeyDown") End Sub Gives me: [rsCompilerErrorInCode] There is an error on line 48 of custom code: [BC30590] Event 'KeyDown' cannot be found.   Sub MeKeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles Rs.KeyDown msgbox("MeKeyDown") End Sub Gives me: [rsCompilerErrorInCode] There is an error on line 48 of custom code: [BC30506] Handles clause requires a WithEvents variable defined in the containing type or one of its base types. Help me please!?!? Regards Jos
