Global Navigation dropdowns not working in IE7

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

I have done a lot of small (insignificant) javascript customizations to my master page, and I have done these customizations to other pages and had complete functionality.  My site's top navigation bar (global navigation) is not working properly in IE7.  The dropdown menus do not drop down.  


Has anybody worked through a similar experience?

Global Navigation across Site Collections

MOSS 2007 Global Navigation across Site Collections I have couple of questions. a) Is there an easy way to share a global navigation between site collections? b) Portal has the navigation tabs (tab1..n). User doesn't have access to all the tabs, may have access to one or more tabs. Each tab represents a site collection. Is there a way to display the only tabs to which the users have access? If we can develop using SDK, please provide some hints.   Thanks,

Top Global Navigation across site collections(?)

Hi, My understanding at the conference was that SharePoint 2010 closed the gap in navigation in that 2010 could see across site collections thus allowing for you to have visibility of those site collections in your global navigation.  However, I can't seem to locate this feature. Does anyone know how you can configure your global navigation to span across site collections? Thank you for your comments, Tim

Crystal Report viewer navigation buttons not working

Working in Visual Studio 2008 and using the packaged Cystal Reports (version 10.5). I have a couple pages that use the Crystal Reports Viewer to display the reports, and I use the CRV navigation buttons to page through large reports. Problem: The Next button only goes to page 2. The Previous button goes to Page 1 every time. I've read that this is because the binding of the report occurs in the Page_Load() and the CRV paging resets every time the report is rebinded. It was suggested to move this into Page_Init() which should only fire once, save the report in Session state, and then rebind on post backs. I've tried this, but my code never seems to reach the Page_Init(). In fact, I don't even see Page_Init() as an option. I've tried protected override OnInit(), but it fires every post back so that's no good. Does anyone have suggestions for a solution? Where is Page_Init() in Visual Studio 2008?  Thanks for any help.  -Robert    

Global navigation and partial views


I guess this is mostly a theory question since I'm very new to MVC.  If you have a global navigation tree, Countries --> States --> Cities for example, how do you correctly implement this in MVC2?  In my example, the view model for States does not contain Countries and the tree would break as it needs the Countries list to build the tree.

It sounds like this should be easy, but it doesn't sound right to include the entire model for a single State or City view.

WPF- Back/Forward navigation UI not working when Html web files are displayed in Frame Control


I am integrating (web) html files in my WPF application using Frame (say Source=http://www.microsoft.com)

I set the JournalOwnership="OwnsJournal" and


The navigation UI is visible and disabled initially when the page loads up (which is fine), but when I click on links the Back/Forward button is not enabled.  Interestingly the context menu shows Back/Forward and I can navigate that way. Do you have pointers?


Thanks for your help.

Navigation Menu is not working in Crome


Hi I have created a Navigation Menu with some csc style. But it is working for IE, Firefox but not showing the style in Crome properly.

                        <asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl="~/Default.aspx" Text="Home"/>

Publishing Portal navigation Headings don't display in Global Nav.


I am having a problem displaying a 'Heading' on the Global Navigation bar, that has been manually added to the 'Navigation Editing & Sorting' section of a publishing portal sub site.

If I create a new page in the sub site it automatically appears on the Global navigation bar however when I manually enter a Heading with or without a link underneath, it won't display at all. Sites and Pages all work, it's just Headings that won't display.

I am thinking it has something to do with the default masterpage and default navigation provider.

Hoping somebody knows a workaround without having to create my own masterpage of hack the default one with SharePoint designer. 


Show SubSites as Drop Down in Global Navigation


I am migrating my SharePoint 2007 site to SharePoint 2010. I have recreated all the sites and subsites for my site. I'm having trouble getting the global navigation to show the sites as a drop down like I had in SharePoint 2007. My SharePoint navigation shows the link to the top level site (my home page), and tabs for each of the subsites. Some of those subsites have subsites as well, and it's these that I want to have show up in a drop down. I have tried customizing the master page but cannot seem to get the right combination to get it working.

I updated the SharePoint:AspMenu attributes to use StaticDisplayLevels="2" and MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels="3". I've tried lots of other combinations, but I'm not getting the drop down menus showing the subsites. My SharePoint 2007 master page has StaticDisplayLevels="2" and MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels="1", which also is not working in SharePoint 2010.

How do I get my drop downs to work?

I have created a basic horizontal menu in MVWD 2010 which works when I debug it on my own machine. But as soon as I upload to a ASP.net 3.5 sever online, the dynamic aspect doesnt work. Are there some major differences in frameowrk 3.5 to 4?





Intellisense not working for assembly registered in global web.config


I made a custom server control library that all of our websites will be using. I have registered the dll in the global web.config of our production and development servers, and everything builds and runs fine. The only problem I have is Visual Studio/Intellisense not recognizing my control. I get the error message "Unknown server tag...", which in turn throws other validation warnings. Does anyone know how to tell Visual Studio to include dll's registered in this location?

Our sites are .net 4.0 and below is an excerpt from the web.config located in %SystemDrive%\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Config on the servers.



    <add assembly="[assembly info]" tagPrefix="irnrControls" namespace="IRNR.Controls"/>



It's not that big of a deal right now as I only have one control in the dll, but I would like to fix this before I add more controls. Thanks in advance.
