People Picker Validation Error

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

 Hi Folks,

              we are creating the People Editor Control Dynamically like

 protected Control LoadPicker(string webPartName, string principleNames)
      PeopleEditor pplSelect = new PeopleEditor();
      if (principleNames.ToString().Trim().Length > 0)
        principleNames = principleNames.Substring(0, principleNames.Length - 1);
        PickerEntity entity = new PickerEntity
          Key = principleNames
        pplSelect.SelectionSet = "User,SecGroup,SPGroup";
        pplSelect.ValidateResolvedEntity = true;
        pplSelect.ValidatorEnabled = true;

      pplSelect.ID = "pplSelect_" + webPartName;
      pplSelect.MultiSelect = true;
      pplSelect.AllowTypeIn =

People Picker gets error when selecting user from a trusted domain(one way forest trust)

  Hello all,   Our current setup is SharePoint 2010 Foundation server in one external forest(Trusting forest), and trying to have users in a separate internal forest(Trusted forest) access the site. The external forest's DC and SharePoint server are in a DMZ separated by a firewall with the internal forest's DC and users. A one way transitive forest trust was successfully created and has been validated. On SharePoint, we're ran the sts commands to set the setapppassword as well as the peoplepicker-searchadforests adding the domain that the SharePoint server is in, as well as the trusted forest. An iisreset was issued after running these commands. In SharePoint, we can then search for users from the trusted domain, and select the users in the Select People page, but when hitting the final Ok, an error is received: An unexpected error has occurred in which a correlation ID is provided. Reviewing the SharePoint logs we find the following: <!-- /* Font Definitions */ @font-face {font-family:Calibri; panose-1:2 15 5 2 2 2 4 3 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:swiss; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:-520092929 1073786111 9 0 415 0;} @font-face {font-family:Tahoma; panose-1:2 11 6 4 3 5 4 4 2 4; mso-font-charset:0; mso-generic-font-family:swiss; mso-font-pitch:variable; mso-font-signature:-520081665 -1073717157 41 0 66047 0;} /* Style Defin

People Picker Render Error in Document Information Panel

I created a Content Type and added 3 columns.  One of those columns is a People Picker type column. When I open the Content Type by going to NEW -> MyContentType in a document library in SharePoint it opens in Microsoft Word but the People Picker control does not render correctly in the Document Information Panel. There is no error - just a display of a broken control. Is there a fix?

People Picker fails to search or resolve and return an error message.



I got an error while trying to access the people picker from some specific locations. I'm experiencing those problems ONLY in the cental administration and also there, just on a few places. For example if I try to change the authorization settings of any service application there is a different people picker pop up than, for example, if I want to change the admins of any service application. Any other people picker window outside the central administration works for me.

So it seems to me, that there are two different types of people picker windows. The one which is not working for me also appears in the metadata service application which is the reason I can't use this service as I'm not able to define an owner of a keyset.

In the error log I found the following message: "Ausnahme im Forderungsanbieter 'Alle Benutzer' beim Aufruf von 'SPClaimProvider.FillHierarchy()': Der Objektverweis wurde nicht auf eine Objektinstanz festgelegt." It basically says: An exception occurred in 'all users' claim provider when calling 'SPClaimProvider.FillHierarchy()': The object reference was not set on a object instance. This is event-id 8307 which you can find here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff535778.aspx

Localize framework message from xml validation error


I need to validate an XML through XSD. I am using XMLReader (with XmlReaderSettings and 

Validation_EventHandler to do it). Depend on users preference, I would like to change the output message generated by  Validation_EventHandler in french or english.

Any idea on how to perform this?





Error on Jquery Date Picker

BDC Column validation error in DIP



I have created a content type which has a BDC column along with other columns.

This content type is used in a document library. When the user adds a new document of this content type the system is asking for the extra data required for this content type and I am using AJAX to store data in the BDC Column fields.

The adding process goes fine and I am able to check in the document

Now if I check out the document and open it to edit it, a message is shown on the top of the document saying ' Required Properties - To save to the server, correct the invalid or missing required properties' along with 'Edit Properties' button.

When I click on 'Edit Properties' DIP is opening up and the invalid column is not highlighted. After some trial and error I found out that the problem is with the BDC column. When the cut the data from BDC column and paste it again and click on 'Check Item' the error disappears and allows me to check in the document.


Did anyone face any problem like this before. If so please help me out

Also I am new to BDC so please bear with me if I am missing something obvious.



Rejected by custom validation error & ItemAdding



I believe this topic was discussed before in this forum, but I couldn't find it using the exact error I receive: "operation for file.doc was rejected by custom validation on the server"

When I try to add a new word document to my doc library, Word displays this error instead of my custom error message. I set properties.Cancel=true in ItemAdding of my EventHandler, because my validation fails. 

Is there any way to display user properties.ErrorMessage instead of this generic error message?


Binding of complex entity turns into validation error

consider classic example: Product and Category editing Product in dropdown Id of Category is selected - Category mapped as object with all fields empty except Id when submitting Product edit form - validation gives an error: "Category name is required" (I have Required attribute on Category Name property) How deal with such errors if I want to use built-in validation (if (!ModelState.IsValid))? Writing custom data binder which would fill all such id-only-objects with values from database comes to mind.upd: I did small research of mvc code and found out that validation happens before binding - so this solution would't work. Do you have any other solutions for this problem?

Validation Error

I have a strange validation error that I sure can't figure out. I'd ignore it, but I'm ending up with a ">" char as the first char rendered in the page. Anybody see anything wrong with this markup?

Authentication for people picker

Hi All, People picker failed to track for the domain user. an error says "No Exact match was found"   I have look into many articles and one of it actually did solved my case. But i do not know what is the logic behind.   My web application's app pool is run under local account. When i try to create a site collection and people picker failed to match with domain user. I changed the app pool account(Identity) to a domain account to run the app pool. Then i try to create site collection, and people picker can match with the domain user. I do not know why. Can please brief me on the logic behind? Possible to trace for the domain user while the web app pool is running under local user account? This is a standalone farm but joined to a domain. Whole farm is using local user account to run the service. Thanks in advance.   Regards Jason  

User display Name & People Picker

Hi, We wanted to use a web application without user profile service. We have added users their display name is always domain\username. Is it that without user profile service display names will not be updated. But my understanding is that people picker also returns display name. Is it something else we need to configure to get the displayname from the people picker itself.Satheesh

People Picker & Replicate Permission

Hi, We have a IT env in a test domain and it is one way trusted to the domain where the actual users are. Recently we have tried adding a new web application for a different domain users (which is again one way trusted). But the people picker in this does not return any result. Does the account which is used for people picker need replication directory permission on that domain. And the ULS log says: (All these are Verbose information) SearchFromGC name = domain2.company.com. start SearchFromGC name = domain2.company.com. returned. Result count = 1 GetAccountNameFromSid "0x010500000000000515000000358A021AB47B733407E53B2BD9260500" start GetAccountNameFromSid "0x010500000000000515000000358A021AB47B733407E53B2BD9260500" returned. returnValue=False ------------------ Can someone help me what could be the issue.  Satheesh
