Running code after site definition site creation in a event receiver or feature receiver

Hi guys I've got a site definition which is pretty much based on STS.This is it's own sharepoint project. Let's call this project SiteDefProj. Next in another SharePoint project (same solution though). Let's call this CustomListProject. In this project I've got a feature which provisions a bunch of lists based on custom content types - this feature is a site scoped. Let's call this feature: CustomListInstances. I have added a feature receiver to this feature to execute some custom code on the lists themselves (under feature activated) In my ONET.XML (part of the SiteDefProj) I have CustomListInstances feature ID as part of my <sitefeatures>. When I do a create site I can actually step through the code and see it actually being executed but after the site is created the list instances are created but it's like the code never run or did anything. The weird part is that stepping through the code while creating a site collection using my SiteDefProj the code runs great with no errors. All lists are there and the code runs smooth. If I manually create a STS site and activate my feature everything works and the code does actually run and the effects are visible after the feature is created. Again I can actually step through it in debug. My suspicion is that there's some sort of a race condition in the CREATE SITE functionality where maybe the web or site collection hol

SQL Server 2008 Feature Upgrade Failed



I have an installation of SQL Server 2005 Express, and I'm trying to upgrade it to SQL Server 2008 Express.  During the installation, when it gets to the "Upgrade Rules" part, everything passes except for "SQL Server 2008 Feature Upgrade."  It says the specified edition upgrade is not supported, but according to the upgrade matrix it should be.  We plan on purchasing licenses for the Enterprise edition, but I would like to figure this out in the meantime.



Failed to determine definition for Feature with ID


I have been getting the following High alert in the SharePoint logs.  I have tried searching the registry to no avail.  Does anyone know what this feature may be or how I can look it up?


Failed to determine definition for Feature with ID '8151d870-ea9e-4d2c-8504-d2d699ef050e'.




preupgradecheck Failed : Pending upgrade operation detected in this farm


Hi There,

While executing stsadm command for pre-upgrade on WSS 3.0, I get an error “Failed : Pending upgrade operation detected in this farm“.
 I ran psconfig -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -wait successfully, but still get the error above.  How do I get rid of this error?

I'm failing the stsadm -o preupgradecheck process with the following:  (preparing for MOSS 2007 to SPS 2010 upgrade).

Running a feature activated code during new site provisioning.

I would like to be able to run some simple code that have in a feature whenever a new site is provisioned.  I created the feature and it works just like I want it to.  I left it activated and saved the site template.  Now when I create a new site based on the saved site template the feature activated code no longer runs unless I deactivate and then activate.  I know this isn't suppose to work this way, and after much searching on the internet I am finding the feature stapling (not what I want, that seems to be what I have already done) and SPWebProvisionProvider.  The provider might be what I want but I am not sure how it works and there are no good examples on how to get one created in code and where to place it so that a user can utilize it when creating a new site.  Can someone explain this concept to me in ad nauseum detail.  Thanks in advance.

Show grand total running total in GridView Footer

In many scenarios we need to display Running total as well as Grand total in GridView footer. In this post i will try to explain in an easy way that how we can display running total & Grand total in a GridView footer combindly. To explain this solution using an example here i use a sales order report. The report contains all sales order amount in a tabular way. I will use a GridView to display sales order amount and use GridView footer to display Running total & Grand total. Let we have a customer table with id and name column plus an orders table with OrderID,CustomerID,OrderDate & Amount. Now our goal is to show all customers order with amount as well as page wise running total & grand total. Note that running total is necessary when you enable paging in a GridView where as Grand total is always you can consider.
