Cannot add SQL Server 2008 R2 Report items to SharePoint Server 2010 document library

Using account which is the primary parent site administrator, can upload RDS and RDL files to the document library (however, cannot open report). User is also a domain admin with SA on the database instances. Cannot add Report Data Source with "New Document" icon.

SSRS 2008 SP1 Unable to get cataloge items from server.


When I access the report server locally I can access the report builder 1.0 click-once application without problems and it is able to show me a list of the reports.  When I access the same report server via our load balancer that does SSL off-loading I get the error message "Unable to get cataloge items from server." the details of which are below:

An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host
Unable to read data from the transport connection: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.
The underlying connection was closed: A connection that was expected to be kept alive was closed by the server.

I had to enable basic authentication and allow anonymous access to the report builder so my client could access it from their computers on their domain.  They have accounts on my domain which they are prompted for and enables them to access the reports website and the report builder application.  Its only when they try to open a report with the report builder that they get this error message about being able to get the catalog.

Any ideas?

Sharepoint upload image, upload to missing items



When I access my site with address like in central administration (ex: mysite:7777) list of "upload to" does not contain all elements. It only consists of images, documents and pages.  (I upload from some page, edit and then insert image from computer)


When I access my site with ip address (ex: or other address configured in hosts) I can see all items. There are additionally site collection images, sc pages etc. 

I want to see all items when accessing site with address.

Any ideas?




Missing items in listview webparts



We have a "dashboard" page that consists of several listview webparts.  The other day, I imported a thousand or so items in to one of the libraries the webparts are attached to.  Now, the webparts are not showing all of the items any more.  If I go straight to the same view attached to the listview web part, I see all the items.  The view is filtered for criteria that should show at most 50 items, but the library contains around 2300 forms.  Is there some sort of limit on how many items a listview webpart can sort through (not the display item limit).  The weird part is, the items that are not shown are random.  The view sorts the items by ID the missing items can be anywhere in between new items or old.  Again if I go straight to the document library and open up the view, everything looks great.  I've tried reconnecting the view, changing the limits to a high number (even though not that many should be displayed after the filter)

The same issue is happening with a listview that is a calendar view connected to the same library.  Random items do not show up.

Any suggestions?

jQuery: Styling DropDownList Alternating Items (Rows)

In the following example, I will show how you can style any asp:dropdownlist very easily.

The example demonstrates how you can change alternating row items background color, using the fadeTo() to add a nice touch in the dropdownlist. You can change alt rows with a couple lines.

Hide a repeater in ASP.NET C# if the DataSource contains no items?

I have an ASP.NET page that uses a repeater nested within another repeater to generate a listing of data. It's to the effect of the following:
In the (C#) code-behind I'm basically using LINQ to pull a listing of information from an XML document and bind that information to the first repeater.

Searching for the answer to this, it seems the method is to determine whether the data for the nested repeater is empty. If it is, then you set the visibility of the repeater to false.

Creating SharePoint items with CreateItemActivity

Instead of creating new list items from code in your workflow you can use CreateItemActivity. CreateItemActivity can be used for creating list items or files. Properties of interest for this activity are the following (most of them are self-explanatory):

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).

HttpContext.Items and Server.Transfer/Execute

The problem was basically that when a Server.Transfer call was applied the script container (and also various ClientScriptProxy script embedding routines) would potentially fail to load up the specified scripts.

Adding new items to a Repeater control with transitions?



I am currently in the process of writing a facebook type 'activity feed' for a site. Currently I am binding the last 10 items to a repeater control, which contains a usercontrol representing each item. This works fine but there are a couple of requiremnts that are giving me problems and wondered if the the good people of the forum could make some suggestions.

The requirement is that when a user clicks a refresh button any new events are added to the top of the list, the previous items drop down and the equivalent number of old items drop off the bottom, all with nice slider transitions.

I have put the repeater inside of an update control and are able to handle the transitions by using RegisterStartup script to drop jquery calls onto the page for the slider. However I cannot find a way to dynamically add or remove new datarows to the repeater. I need the old items to stay in the repeater and be pushed down by the new items, so completely refreshing the datasource seems like a bad idea.

I was thinking about maybe storing the datasource in the viewstate and adding rows to that, maybe with an extra column on the end which stores what transition is needed on the databind for my jquery, but there will be a 'View more items' link at the bottom of the page, so I am worried that the list could get pretty large and there
