Win7, IE8 display formatting problem

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

We only have one Win7 box in the company and it does not want to display our sharepoint 2003 pages correctly. It’s not consistent either, some times it will load correct and other times it won’t. When it’s working right, the pages load quickly, when its not, the pages load real slow or not at all. When they don’t load correct, it’s like the CSS or something along them lines is messed up. The colors are not correct, the text is larger and not where it should be.


The Win7 box has all the latest updates. I’m not sure what patch level the server and sharepoint are at, I don’t manage them myself.

[VS2008] Designer's display problem

Hello, I created a solution with multi-project and i've recently added some resources files to lacalized my application and of course my XAML files too. I used the "How To:" http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/dd882554(v=VS.95).asp I inserted the class LocalizedString in one off my project that I use as library for common actions. But since, my designer is not loading properly because it can't find this class while I precised the good assembly and that the application is running properly with resources applied. It's then not handy to develop an HMI... If anybody has an idea about this trouble... Of course I tried dozens of times to clear the projects and regenerate without success. Thank you for your help !

Problem with GridView display

I have a calendar control where a user selects a date and then inputs info into a FormView control. Underneath the FormView is a GridView that shows all data from the SelectedDate on the calendar control. However, when the date is selected, all the information from the table ( from all dates ) is displayed. Any ideas on why?

Date formatting problem with BIDS


I've just moved to a new PC, and had BIDS installed on it.  All machine dates are set to the international standard (dd/MM/yyyy).

I just opened an existing report to modify it that includes a date range in the parameters.  When I tried to do a test preview of the report in BIDS, I got an invalid data error on the first date parameter.  After a bit of fiddling around, I worked out that it would only let me input the dates in US format, yet after input the dates are converted to international format.  When deployed to the report server, the report requires the dates to be input in international format.

I've spent half an hour checking my machine and BIDS to try and find the cause of this problem, and I'm stumped.

Any suggestions?

Sharepoint Designer - Conditional Formatting Problem


I've been creating some basic conditional formatting scenarios using Designer ... but I'm very new to this and need help with two topics that I can't get to work.

Problem 1:

When my condition criteria is met I want to display a graphic in the background, but the left of the actual text for that column. 

Example: I have a list of orders and when the priority column says rush, I want to display a small graphic to the left of the text for that column and shift the text to the right by the width of the 40 pixel graphic.  I've looked through all the different settings in the "modify style" dialog box and have used trial and error, but the darn graphic keeps displaying behind the text only. UGH!  I've been working on this for 2 hours now and can't figure it out. 

Can someone tell me what parameters to set so the text is shifted to the right 40 pixels so the background that is left justified is visible?


Problem 2:  

In this case, I can't figure out how to write the formula to tell   If  [DUE DATE] is less then 5 days from today I want the background cell to change color. I know how to change the color, but can't figure out the formula for the life of me.  Can someone give me the formula? 

Here's what I tried using in the xpath advanced

Move to Win7 64-bit causing SQL Server Connection problem


We have a packaged VB App (Charm) originally developed in VS2003 then redeveloped in VS2005.

It uses a UDL file to point to the appropriate SQL Server and Database, using SQL OLEDB. 

It has been working fine on dozens of different installations both in-house and at customer sites for years.

We recently moved it to Windows 7.  It generally runs fine on 32-bit Win 7 but not on 64-bit, as it can't find its server.

In an effort to resolve the issue we then changed the app to get its connection string from a config file (charm.exe.config) stored in the program folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Charm.

On some 64-bit machines (But not all!) it doesn't work with this setup either.  We put a dialogue in to debug where it thinks its server should be found.  It is ignoring the .config file setting (which I will paste below) and instead getting the server name (NDS-5) from within the original binaries of charm.exe.  This is the server on which the app was compiled - but it doesn't even exist on my test network which is at a different office location.

The connection string settings currently used are:-

  <add name="Charm.My.MySettings.CallManagerSQLConnectionString"
   connectionString="Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Data Source=AC-XP\ACXPSQL

Formatting problem with Email from an Browser Enabled InfoPath 2010 Form in SharePoint 2010


I'm creating a form in InfoPath 2010 to be filled out in the browser within our SharePoint 2010 instance. It's pretty simple, four columns with total table width of about 650 pixels, textboxes, checkboxes, datepicker and one multiselect list box. The form is working fine up to the point where I invoke a data connection which emails the form to myself. When it arrives in my inbox, the format of the form included in the body of the email is funky. When I open the email and set it to a full screen viewing window (1440X900) the area that takes up the form exceeds the width of my viewing window and requires scroll bars to see all the fields on the form.

When printing the form from my email the area is so large that no data will show up in the printable area (it appears to be centered on the form and it is cutting off the "extra content" to the left and right which contains the form data as the user entered it). I'm using Outlook 2007. I also forwarded the email to a person who's using Outlook 2010 and they experienced the same problems as myself.

Things I've tried to fix it: Setting each column width, setting each control width to a pixel length (instead of using %). I added some code behind to switch the view to a two column view with a table width of 400px before it sends out the email. It's closer to being at a state where it's

GridView inline Master/Detail record display

This code drop is part of a smash and grab series. If you're in a rush, you can just grab this code and insert it into your application, no understanding is required. When you have some time (ya, right) you may want to review the source code.

Problem to group radio button across gridview rows

In general no one can easily group or make a single selection from radio button list inside gridview rows. There are a lot of way to make a single or unique selection from list.

Thats why i tried to group the radio buttons in vertical manner. Let i have a requirement like below:
