Calendar: How to show the full title (and other issues)

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


in SP 2007's calendar, in calendar view, the full title is displayed. It 2010, only a partial of the title is being displayed (which is not suitable if you want to show the menu!!!)

I tried to modify it though SPD 2010, yet in SPD is shows it correctly! Actually, it shows it in 2007-mode appearance - yes, it's weird and crippy, I know...

Any ideas of what to do?

Thank you

calendar control, show onHover


hi all,
is it possible to have a calendar control on an asp.net page that is diplayed only onHover over some area?
Most of the times, the control won't be needed and I would like to save the space for something else. In case the calendar is needed I want it to slide down from under a link or button (most likely it will be an image there).

thanks a bunch,

Issues with dynamically created TabContainer (Hide/Show TabPanel)


I have a web page that contains an UpdatePanel. In that panel, there is a TabContainer control that has 5 TabPanels, only the first one "Tab 1" will be displayed during initial page load. There is an Add button in "Tab 1", whenever it gets clicked, I will add (show) the next TabPanel (Tab 2, Tab 3, etc., all the way to Tab 5). "Tab 2" thru "Tab 5" contains a Close button that will close (hide) the current tab when clicked.

I'm doing all of these from code behind (dynamically create controls in Page_Init event and re-generate them during postback, track each TabPanel's content in a session variable, etc.), and everything seems to work just fine IF after adding several TabPanels, I remove  them in order (i.e. remove Tab 5 first, then Tab 4, Tab 3, etc.). It will NOT work whenever I try to remove a tab in the middle, then I will get all kinds of strange results.

I've attached the sample codes here for reviewing and testing. Any help is greatly appreciated.

ReportViewer Calendar button Click does not show calendar


I have a reportviewer on a page which is grabbing a report from a report server. the page is basically just a dropdownlist and a reportviewer control. The problem I have is that in the report the user have to provide the dates for teh report. The reportviewer automatically adds the textbox for the date entry and a calendar icon in front of it so the user can select the date. if I look at this page  in FireFox, when you click on the calendar button created by the reportviewer, the calendar control show up momentrily and dispappears. If you look at the same page in IE 7.0 nothing happens other than the page appears to be submitted. Does any body have any ideas on how to go about troubleshooting this bug?



Issues with Web Part Title and Description information

I have created a series of visual web parts for my clients SharePoint 2010 server farm and for each one I have altered the default values for the visual web part title and description, both of which can be found in the visual web part control's .webpart file. Example ... <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <webParts>   <webPart xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v3">     <metaData>       <type name="ECUserContWebPart.ECUserCont, $SharePoint.Project.AssemblyFullName$" />       <importErrorMessage>$Resources:core,ImportErrorMessage;</importErrorMessage>     </metaData>     <data>       <properties>         <property name="Title" type="string">Employee Centre User Content Web Part</property>         <property name="Description" type="string">Staff Events Calendar - Discussions - Blogs for Employee Centre</property>       </properties>     </data>   </webPart> </webParts> When I deploy this to my local development environment using Visual Studio 20

Sharepoint Calendar export to Outlook but can only view the Title column

I have created a Calendar in Sharepoint for booking out company vehicles. The fields I have created are: Vehicle (Choice), Driver (User/Group), Start & End Times, Title (text), DisplayField (Calculated text based on Vehicle + Title...... it would be nice to include Driver but it seems Sharepoint cannot handle the User/Group datatype in a calculated field.....but I digress). I use the DisplayField calculated field in my default calendar view in Sharepoint. All is good at this point. When one connects it to Outlook (via the Action menu in Sharepoint) the calendar is added but all the entries show only the Title field. If I double click on an entry, only the title field appears - the Vehicle and Driver values are missing. When I try to create a new entry - only the Title field (plus other default Outlook fields) are available. So: How can one display a value other than Title by default, and how can I display the other columns when looking at the event detail?

Show Calendar Control SQL data value using Label control

Thank you.      

Title for a Reporting Services booth at a dog & pony show

For the foreigners.. dog & pony show is not literal! My company is having an IT Expo and I'm doing a booth demoing reporting services to many folks who may not have seen it before within the company.  I've got a decent solution to demo that is in production which includes drilldown reports, graphs, use of parent/child expanding sections, etc. So far my best idea is Reporting Services It's my data and I want it now! Pretty lame, I know. Surely one of you can do better!  Thanks.. Ken

When adding new calendar item the title field is missing - MOSS 2007



A staff member just noticed that when adding a new item to a vacation calendar we have set-up - the Title column is missing.  They will finish creating the new calendar item and then when they go to edit it the Title column appears and they can fill it in.

Can figure out what caused this or how to fix - any ideas?

When I create a new test calendar the title column is displayed properly when creating new item - so not sure what happened with this calendar.

Hope someone has come across this before.

Thanks so much!

show selected date in calendar


Hi all,

I've got this terrible brain freeze today ;-)

I have an asp:Calendar (not ajax). When I set the selectedDate from codebehind to a date in another month, I'd want the new selected date to show (that is, show the calendar "page" with the new month. How do I do this?

calFromDate.SelectedDate = myDate 'works fine

calFromDate.ShowSelectedDate's Month 'pseudocode


The calendar resides in an updatepanel for speed purposes, but I don't think that has anything to do with anything...


Thanks a lot!


Full Calendar with events


I have an Asp.net website and need to build or possibly buy something to allow me to do this. I am not looking for a little pop-up window calendar, but something that feels and looks like a full calendar that I can update events and display the calendar on my site for others to view and drill down on a particular day. Could someone throw me in the right direction please? Is there a particular language or platform that I need to check into for this? Thanks...

Can you use calendar overlays to show two Exchange 2003 conference room calendars in Sharepoint 2010


I want to use the calendar overlays to show an aggregate view of multiple conference room calendars on a single sharepoint 2010 foundation webpart.  The calendars are resource calendars held on an SBS 2003 server.  Is this possible?  I get a 404 error if I try to navigate to https://myowaserver.contoso.com/EWS/exchange.asmx with IE.  If I try the calendar I get the  following error:

Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel with authority 'myowaserver.contoso.com'

These are the entries in the overlay calendar:



is SBS 2003 not supported?

Join 2 tables and show the title on the top, and its items on the itemtemplate



I have table COLLECTIONS and table CLOTHES.
As an example, when showing the items on Listview, collection HAWAII would be written on the top, and its texts and images on the itemTemplate.
Then, collection WINTER and its texts and images on the itemTemplate.
And so on.

P.S: I´m connecting the Listview visually thru SQLDataSource, not programatically.

How can i do it ? On the layout template using a JOIN on the SQL Statement ?

Thanks in advance.

When Adding users some show as domain\username others as full name


When adding users to SharePoint site some show as Domain\Username while others show as "First Name Last Name". once of the users that show as Domain\Username is noticing some strange thing with his access.

I tried to remove the user that shows as domain\username and add again but still appeared as domain\username.  Also, when I click on the link for domain\username I get message "the webpage cannot be found", while for the users that show as First Name Last name I am able to view their User Information page.

Out of some 40 users I only have 4 that show as domain\username.

Anyone know what is the cause or a fix?

UPDATE: I went to SharedServices1>User Profiles and Properties>View User Profiles and there are 10 profiles listed inlcuding my owne. :)  For some reason when I go to our http://sitename and go to site settings>people and groups and click on one of the 10 user names I get page cannot be displayed.  Maybe now I have two issues instead of one.


Events don't show up in a specific month and in last days of months whose calendar view include day



I actually faced a strange problem which is that when I add events in september 2011, they don't show up in the calendar view and the view remains empty but they appear in the all events view but events in other months appear.

Another strange thing is that I was adding events in July 2011. In the calendar view of July 2011, the first 6 days of August appear but this isn't the problem but the problem is that when I add about 3 events in 31 July then about another three from 31 July to 4 August and then about 2 events from 1 to 4 August, the events are collapsed and the 3 more items appear but when I click the link, I don’t see the events that were just on 31 July and I tried this too in the end of March so it seems that the months whose calendar view includes some days from the next month have a problem.

And finally when I change the month to be october 2010, I get error page with the text:

An unexpected erro has occured.

web parts maintenance page: If you have permission, you can use this page to temporarily close Web Parts or remove personal settings. For more information, contact your site administrator.

and I checked in more than one calendar and in more than one site and it's the same, So I'm asking if any one faced something like th
