Deploying custom Web Parts on SharePoint 2007 production server

I would like to develop a custom SharePoint 2007 Web Part for a client. Currently I'm using Visual Studio to deploy my solution to a test environment (since it's a SharePoint Project I choose just Build -> Deploy from the menu). What are the appropriate steps to deploy it to the production server?

I'd like keep it simple and safe (i.e. use the principle of least privilege). Therefore (if possible) avoid using stsadm, achieve this through web interface, or avoid using administrative rights.

Also, can I specify the scope of my Web Part, i.e. choose on which Web Application or Site Collection will it be installed?

Custom event does not fire

Hello,I have a base server control class for all my user controls. Inside this class I have the following declaration:#region Event Handling Management public event EventHandler ItemSaved; public event EventHandler ItemCancelled; protected virtual void OnItemSaved(EventArgs e) { if (this.ItemSaved != null) { this.ItemSaved(this, e); } } protected virtual void OnItemCancelled(EventArgs e) { if (this.ItemCancelled != null) { this.ItemCancelled(this, e); } } #endregion Concrete user controls used in the application are used always inside a ModalPopupExtender object and the popup it is always handled with server-side code. This means that there are no controls binded to the OkControlID and CancelControlID properties of the ModalPopupExtender.The responsibility to show the Modal Popup is then given to the aspx that has code like thisin the ASPX file...<gsl:PhoneNumberUC ID="ucPhoneDetail" runat="server" />in code behind...protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) { if (!IsPostBack) { //Bind to the event handler ucPhoneDetail.ItemSaved += new EventHandler(ucPhoneDetail_ItemSaved); ucPhoneDetail.ItemCancelled += new EventHandler(ucPhoneDetail_ItemCancelled); } } protected void btnNewPhone_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { //Show the Modal Popup this.mpePopupPhone.Show(

Creating a custom drop down field type with SelectedIndexChanged Event

Hi All, I am trying to create a custom drop down field type and I was able to acheive that using the MS link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb861799.aspx. As per the link, once the custom field is created we can override the "Validate" method to write the Validation logic and that works fine for me too. However I am facing a challenge even before going to Validate . Let me explain my actual requirements here. I need to build a custom drop down field and expose the field to the user in "Edit Properties " Page of a document library. Along with this field, I will be having some OOB site columns in the Edit Properties Page (Ex: Title, Subject etc)  . When user selects a value in the drop down, I need to hide/show few OOB site columns based on certain criteria.  I am facing a challenge of how to capture the "SelectedIndexChanged " event for the Custom drop down field in Sharepoint (Can we wire the SelectedIndexChanged event to a custom dropdown field type) ? Is this acheivable in SP 2010 Custom field type ? If so, how can I do it ? Can any of you kindly help me here?   Regards, Yesh

List Event Receivers firing for all custom lists

Hello, I have a site with two custom lists, and I have created an EventReceiver class to handle the ItemAdded event for custom lists. I have modified the EventReceiver's Elements.xml file to only handle items added to one of the custom lists instead of all custom lists, by changing: <Receivers ListTemplateId="100"> to <Receivers ListUrl="/Lists/MyCustomList">   however, when debugging, the ItemAdded method is being fired when an item is added in both custom lists. I have had to work around this by checking within the ItemAdded method for the list that fired the event:        public override void ItemAdded(SPItemEventProperties properties)        {            base.ItemAdded(properties);            if (properties.ListTitle.Equals("My Custom List")) { ... } I thought the ListUrl attribute of the Receivers element specifies the event to only fire for the specific list with that url? (see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms431081.aspx). Is there somewhere else I should be checking?   Thanks

Custom Event Handler causes "Potentially excessive number of SPRequest objects".

I am getting the following in our custom event handler on our WSS 3.0 installation.  Potentially excessive number of SPRequest objects (9) currently unreleased on thread 10.  Ensure that this object or its parent (such as an SPWeb or SPSite) is being properly disposed. This object is holding on to a separate native heap. I know this is normally a performance issue due to incorrect coding technique, but I cannot figure out where my leak might be? Here is the code.         private const string _workflowName = "ROUTINGROUTER";         private const string _workflowName2 = "ROUTINGWORKFLOW";         private const string _currStateField = "CurrentState";         private const string _fieldName = "InProcess";         private const string _actionFieldName = "SourceAction";         private const string _triggerFieldValue = "FALSE";         private const string _actionTrigger = "RUN";         private const string _routingListName = "LIPList";         public override void ItemUpdated(SPIte

Custom WebPart .LoadControl(.ascx) event not firing


I am creating a Webpart which loads a custom control (.ascx) in the CreateChildControls Event

        protected override void CreateChildControls(EventArgs e)

            _userControl = Page.LoadControl(@"/_controltemplates/ControlTemplates/CustomUserControl.ascx");
            _userControl.ID = "usrSearchResults";


In the codebehind of this user control (I am using the inherits model as in ASP.NET 1.1) I have an InitializeControls method which binds the eventhandlers to an already existing DropDownList on the user control.

Markup in the .ascx file
    <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlRegions" AutoPostBack="true" runat="server" DataTextField="Title"
        DataValueField="Title" EnableViewState="true">

EventHandling code in the code behind of the user control.  This code runs in every Page_Load event.

ddlRegions.DataBound += new EventHandler(ddlRegions_DataBound);
The problem is that when the selected values in the dropdownlist changes the event handler does not fire (a post does occur though).  Am I missing something here?

The Code that I had written is,

Best way to update a Sharepoint 2007 custom list schema after it has been deployed to production


What is the best way to update a Sharepoint 2007 custom list schema file (that is deployed using a feature) after the list has been deployed to production.


Scenario: We have custom list based on a custom list definition and template that we have deployed to production. Users have added items to this list and also added their own new columns to this list apart from what we originally included. Now I want to update this list schema (add another custom column). Whats the best way to achieve that?

Also, a related question is that if a new <field> entry is added to an already deployed schema file, will pushing the new schema file to the right place be enough or will a feature deactivation/activation also be required? I have noticed that some changes to schema files are picked up without the need to deactivate/activate the feature. But whats the general practice for scenarios like this?
