I have to admit it; most of my WindowsÃÂ® Forms controls are an attempt to copy something that already exists. In my October 2004 column I showed you how to create a progress bar that mimicked the one shown during the Windows XP setup routine, and this month I'm at it again.

I am using SSRS 2008 R2,
I have set the default parameter of dropdown and in the output "select a value" item text is removed ,also in the Report Manager 'select a value' removed .
But when I am displaying the same reports in the ReportViewer control as ReportViewer1.ServerReport in the the vs 2010 asp.net project the item select a value is reappearing in the output.
Could you please help me remove the default item text 'select a value' from the ReportViewer control aswel.
In the same code, pasted above if I want to display rating control using xslt list view webpart what I need to write.
I have created few xslt list view webparts for my site but I am not able to display rating control using xslt. I am writing something like this
<xsl:apply-templates select="$Fields[@Name='AverageRating']" mode="PrintField">
<xsl:with-param name="thisNode" select="."/>
<xsl:with-param name="Position" select="$Position"/>
But for this I think i need to include some parameter or any particular template. Using the above type of code in xslt this is not working. I do not want to display table header row. Please guide me on this.
Access control lists (ACLs) can be complex beasts, and user interfaces for editing them are incredibly tricky to implement properly. That's why I was really excited when WindowsÃÂ® 2000 shipped with a programmable ACL editor, shown in Figure 1.

I have 4 different custom page layouts in my publishing site at the site collection level. I have one site named "Services" in site collection. When i create page, i select one page layout from above 4. But when i go to the page settings of that
page to change the page layout of it, i can see only one page layout which this page based on.
Problem is why all the page layouts not listing there? I checked "Page layout and site templates" settings from look and feel of Site Settings, this r set to "Pages in this site can use any layout".
Thanks in advance.
I am running WSS 3.0 with other workflows which are functioning correctly.
I created a new workflow in Visual Studio 2008 and was able to successfully run it in my dev environment.
I attached the workflow to a task list in my dev environment and was able to manually start the workflow by using the drop down workflow option and using the menus to manually start it.
I installed this workflow in our production environment and attached it to the task list (which had a SPD workflow attached to it which stopped working about a month ago).
I made sure that the option to manually start the workflow was checked.
When I tried to manually start the workflow, (hover mouse over title, drop down) there isn’t a workflow option.
The workflow also will not start automatically when a task is changed.
I attached this same workflow to a different task list in production and get the option to start it.
I have tried creating a small workflow in SPD 2007 and attaching it to the task list.
It shows that it is attached, when I look at the workflows that are attached to the task list, but I still don’t get the option to manually start it.
I have checked my security and I have fu
1. What is the name of the field thats connect between the task item and the list name or guid and the list item id or guid
2. SPD: how can when starting the workflow how can i ensure that the initial form variables will be saved at the workflow task list
I'm using a workflow to assign tasks to users.ÃÂ When I try to assign the task to a group (set in the workflow designer), the workflow gives me an error.ÃÂ When I change the assign to property to a single user, the workflow works perfectly.ÃÂ How do I get the workflow to assign the task to the group?ÃÂ Or if that's not possible, can I get it to assign it to more than one user?Kenn
Is there anyway where we can use KPI list to attach to a SharePoint list and indicates which item was clicked the most ? Or any other way to find out the best 5 links based on how many times they were accessed by a user?
Thanks in advance
Hi,I just created a custom field type to show all the users of the site.
public class UserFieldControl : BaseFieldControl
protected DropDownList ddlUsers;
protected override string DefaultTemplateName
public override object Value
this.ddlUsers.SelectedValue = (string)this.ItemFieldValue;
protected override void CreateChildControls()
if (this.Field == null || this.ControlMode == SPControlMode.Display)
this.ddlUsers = (DropDownList)TemplateContainer.FindControl("ddlUsers");
if (ddlUsers == null)
throw new Exception("Error: cannot load .ascs file");
SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite(SPContext.GetContext(System.Web.HttpContext.Current).Site.Url);
SPWeb site = siteCollection.OpenWeb()
How the concurrent for sharepoint list item are are handled.
if two or more users are working on same item. Then how sharepoint process multiple update request for particular list item.
I have a list in which it is possible for one item to be related to another list item in the same list. I am trying make a column in the list which would contain a hyperlink to the related list item. The primary column is called Bill Number,
and the secondary column is Companion Bill Number . The Companion Bill Number is the one I want to be a hyperlink to the list time in which that number is the primary Bill Number. (hope that made sense!).
I thought I could create a hypertext link out of the Companion Bill Number dynamically in a workflow action that runs on item creation. I tried this by using the string builder to create a string for the hypertext link that I set to a workflow variable.
It looks like this <a href="listURL.aspx?ID=[%Bill:CompanionBill%]">[%Bill:CompanionBill%]. Then in another action in the same workflow I tried to set the CompanionBill column to the variable value.
What I ended up with was, instead of the number as a hyperlink, the text in the column reads as [%Bill:CompanionBill%]. I'm thinking this is failing because of the workflow process doesn't have the value of CompanionBill at the time I am asking it
to set the variable value.
Any ideas on how I might make this dynamic link creation work?
This is a recent issue that I have in which I have a "Issue Tracking" List that maintains the workflow of contract renewals.
When an person goes to edit an existing list entry, the description field (standard) has the original text in the box. Prior to this the original - or any older text from a prior change was listed outside and just below the box - and non editable.
That's not the case anylonger.
I am using a DataRepeater control to display records from a database. I have placed an AJAX rating control in the repeater. The control works fine for the first record in the data repeater but it does not work for the rest of the records. The problem is that the control renders fine on the screen but I cannot click it - the mouse changes when hovering over it, but the control does nothing, not even when I click it. The first item works ok though. Any ideas what could be the problem?
Thanks a lot
