There are plenty of options out there for managing user preferences including custom configuration files, the Windows registry, and the isolated storage. But each option has its pros and cons -- and a bad choice can make life difficult. In this article, the author evaluates various options and identifies the characteristics of a good preferences API. Based on those characteristics, he introduces an API that is specifically designed for preferences management, one that offers the best of all the options.

One of the monumental problems organizations face today is aggregating information that's stored in disparate formats. Knowledge workers have long wanted to be able to search for content independent of format. The next version of the Windows operating system, code-named "Longhorn," boasts a new storage subsystem that makes that task easier. That subsystem, code-named "WinFS," allows the user to perform searches based on the metadata of the stored item, regardless of what type of file it is or which application created it. This article covers the basic architecture of WinFS and explains how to use the WinFS managed API.

I am trying to find a solution to manage permissions on a document, while uploading it into a document library. This event has to be fired if a custom field is populated (it's a check box field).
How to write an event for this, i tried writing ItemAdded event, but this is getting fired as soon as a document is uploaded, before coming to the page, where we populate all the fields and hit check in.
can i capture Check-in event.
Currently i have a page that has the following code / layout.. as it is now, i am only displaying the roles and they cant be edited. Since this would be the admin page to manage users, what i would like is to have the Roles display as a checkbox list that shows all our roles and have the roles that the user is assigned to checked. Can that be done, if so are there any examples or tutorials i can review?
<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="UserName" DataSourceID="ObjectDataSource1" AllowSorting="True" Width="80%">
<asp:CommandField ShowDeleteButton="True" ShowEditButton="True" ShowSelectButton="True" />
<asp:CheckBoxField DataField="IsOnline" HeaderText="IsOnline" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="IsOnline" />
<asp:CheckBoxField DataField="IsLockedOut" HeaderText="IsLockedOut" ReadOnly="True" SortExpression="IsLockedOut" />
<asp:BoundField DataField="UserName" HeaderText="UserName" ReadOnly=&quo
I can successfully import a single user into SharePoint 2010 from AD (proves settings permissions are correct) and the number of user profiles increases and I can locate
the user including profile data from active Directory. But when I try to import an Active Directory global security group no users get migrated. In fact the single users profile gets deleted.
Can somebody explain whether it is possible to migrate users into SharePoint 2010 from with security groups in Active Directory?
Also when I retried to import the group of users it deleted the single user that I had successfully imported, I didn’t think this was possible, I ran an incremental synchronization,
i need to import roughly 2000 users and was going to do it in stages to make sure all users were imported but if the process can remove users then each sync run could be adding users and removing users, how will I ever keep track?
Below is the synchronization run report, are there logs files that could give me more information?
I've created a whole bunch of rather complex classes and now i'm starting to work on the ASP.net user interface. Basically the user will open 1 page which will be used to load, edit, save an object. The object has many fields and they are often other classes i've created. To create a nice interface i've used popups and used AJAX to reload parts of the page to avoid reloading the whole thing.
My plan was to create the object and save it to the session. Then each time the page is loaded copy the object values to the asp fields and do the reverse when the page has been submitted copying the asp values to the object field then updating the session object.
So the code will go something like:
if session is not null load from session otherwise create newthis.txtID.text = object.idthis.txtName.text = object.nameetc etc
object.id = this.txtID.textobject.name = this.txtName.textetc etcupdate session.
Is this what you guys would do? or am i over thinking this, seems like a lot of code to load all the object fields each time the page is opened and submitted etc.
Just looking to bounce ideas of off other developers :D
