Adding JavaScript to Default.aspx

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi there,

I am relatively new to SharePoint Designer and want to add a piece of JavaScript code that I have used before on standard HTML websites but I am not 100% sure where to put the code on the page.

I tried already and got an error so I have removed the code and the page works as standard.

Below is the code I inserted to a webpartzone (right) replacing the   which was already there.

<script type="text/javascript">
//new fadeshow(IMAGES_ARRAY_NAME, slideshow_width, slideshow_height, borderwidth, delay, pause (0=no, 1=yes), optionalRandomOrder)
new fadeshow(fadeimages, 300, 220, 0, 7000, 1)

The main script is very long so I hadnt pasted it in but i placed it at the top of the page (when in code view). Here it is below:

What am i doing wrong?

modify/override properties of default sharepoint modal dialogs (ex. editview.aspx) using javascript

Hello all, I would like to know how can I modify (override) some properties of the default sharepoint modal dialogs using Javascript. Ex. the size and location of editview.aspx. I while ago I asked a question about overriding the DialogResult in the display view dialog. I got an answer from Zach which looked like this:             sb.Append("<script type=\"text/javascript\">");             sb.Append(@"window.setTimeout(function () {");             sb.Append(@"if (window.frameElement && typeof(window.frameElement.overrideDialogResult) == 'function')");             sb.Append(@"{");             sb.Append(@"SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.ui.dialog.js', 'SP.UI.DialogResult.OK', function () {");             sb.Append(@"window.frameElement.overrideDialogResult(SP.UI.DialogResult.OK); ");             sb.Append(@"});");             sb.Append(@"}");  

adding javascript breaks default page layout in vwd 2010


I'm putting together my first project in vwd 2010 and I'm starting with the default settings for a web form project.  I'm trying to add an external js file to a content page that inherits from the default master page.   When I add my .js file to the page, the navigation links, which normally display horizontal, desplay like a vertical list.  If I comment out the code then it displays ok.  

Here's how I'm adding my file in the code behind:

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!ClientScript.IsClientScriptBlockRegistered("getNewWord"))
            ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(), "getNewWord",
            "<script language=javascript src='Scripts\\getNewWord.js'>");   

 The navigation markup in the master page looks like this:

            <div class="clear hideSkiplink">
                <asp:Menu ID="NavigationMenu" runat="server" CssClass="menu" EnableViewState="false" IncludeStyleBlock="false" Orientation="Horizontal">
                        <asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl="~/Home.aspx" Text="Home"/>
                        <asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl="~/About.aspx" Text="About"/>

>>>How to use javascript function in aspx file?



I have a file util.js and there some funtions in same file.

For example functions name are keyUp, keyDown, isNumeric, isAlphaNumeric

I have used these functions in aspx code behind in a textbox to restrict user that he may not be able to input any special character.

Before, I used the code directly in aspx file but I have do it for different textboxes therefore to avoid much coding in aspx file I created util.js and put all code in this file but how to use these particular functions in aspx file I couldn't find the way.

Anyone have idea. Do share with me.

I used the reference like this:


' Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="8pt" Onkeyup= "keyUp(event.keyCode)" Onkeydown="return isAlphaNumeric(event.keyCode);" onpaste="return false;">

Content Editor Web Part in default.aspx not copied over.


I have a CEWP with some content in the default.aspx page on one site, and I downloaded and uploaded the default.aspx page to another site collection. But when I display the default.aspx page in the browser the CEWP is not there anymore.

Is the CEWP detached from the default.aspx page and must also be copied over to the new site collection? If so, then where is the CEWP stored?

Thanks for any help. 

Javascript at the end of aspx files. What is the benefit?

Hello,In one of the examples I saw a call to a JS function at the end of the aspx file.Like the following:<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">   <!--    SetExternal();   // --></script>I was under the impression that the JS functions are either called on onlclick of button events or in the HTML Body tag with Onload.So when an aspx page loads then do you thin the following function which is at the end of the page will be called? and why do we put these functions at the end of the page?Thanks.

Redirecting default.aspx to root virtual directory

I have a simple ASP.NET 3.5 application running under IIS7 under a virtual directory. So the URL of my app is like http://site.com/app. I want to 301-redirect the request to site.com/app/default.aspx to site.com/app for better SEO. I have to do this redirect through code only, not by any IIS settings. I am unable to do so via code mentioned in this article:http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/articles/072810-1.aspxThe code:if (request.RawUrl.Equals("/default.aspx")) { newUrl = string.Format("{0}://{1}{2}", request.Url.Scheme, request.Url.Authority, request.RawUrl.Remove(request.RawUrl.LastIndexOf("/default.aspx", StringComparison.OrdinalIgnoreCase))); context.Response.Status = "301 moved permanently"; context.Response.AddHeader("Location", newUrl); } seems to go into an infinite loop when the application is under a virtual directory. the request.RawUrl property always returns "/default.aspx" even after a 301 redirect causing the infinite loop. How can I fix this issuhttp://forums.asp.net/AddPost.aspx?ForumID=27e?

Adding a custom control to the SharePoint 2010 Team Site Wiki Page Template ( wkpstd.aspx ) programm

Topic This is maybe my last post about the Team Site Wiki Page customization with the aim of exceeding its limitations. This time we are going to customize the unique template ( wkpstd.aspx) by replacing the control that renders the editable content by a custom one. In this post example, we will take advantage of the use of this custom control to render not editable additional contents, for instance, a header and a footer that could be the same for a specific Wiki Page Library. Of course, we are not going to really customize the template, but we are going to use a delegate control to replace the control at runtime. Here are the screen shots of the result: We can see a non editable Header and Footer on the Team Site Wiki Page In edit mode these additional contents are not rendered, but we can add new content as usual And of course, after having saved the page, the new content is rendered wtih the non editable Header and Footer. Steps required   If you look at the Team Site Wiki Page template, wkpstd.aspx, you can see the control that is rendering the editable content/ <SharePoint:EmbeddedFormField ID="WikiField" FieldName="WikiField" ControlMode="Display" runat="server" /> We are first going to create a custom EmbeddedFormField control Then, we are going to use a delegate control to replace the native EmbeddedFor

In a group calendar, can items be made visiable to all users by default without adding them as atten

Well the title says it all really. We have a functioning sp 2010 site, setup this weekend, that's working great so far.  Primarily its being used for the company manual and procedures (a wiki site).  Search is working well and so on. I added a calendar with the intention of showing key company activities, plus holiday information and who's out at meetings.  We're a small company and this is unlikely to get ridiculously except on exceptional days. As it stands, when i create an item (for example someone out for a weeks holiday) unless another user adds one of the 'attendees' of the holiday event to the calendar it doesn't show up.  If I add all users as attendees then they can all see it by default. However, if I show that our chairman is attending a meeting at a client, then I can't explicitly say that the chairman is an attendee because for everyone to see it, they have to be attendees as well. I nsoed around a little and thought target audiences might be the way to go.  I configured all users and manager relationships, compiled the audience (it shows the right number of users).  However, if I setup a meeting with the chairman as an attendee, and the whole company audience as the target audience, then people still can't see it. Back to square one. So, is there an actual answer to this?  A different type of calendar, a query that

Please help Cant edit default.aspx

we had a problem with our sharepoint 2.0 site. .net 3.5 got installed which corrupted the webparts so following microsofts kb we rolled back to .net 2.0 which seemed to work. problem is that the default.aspx seems to be an old version. now when we connect to the site using frontpage and look at the default.aspx it is the correct version but when you browse to the site it loads the old version. IIS is set to pickup default.aspx so it should work. why is it that in frontpage the default.aspx is correct but when we browse to the site it is picking up and old version. im confused.

Custom Default.aspx SharePoint 2010

I would like to replace the default.aspx with a custom default.aspx.  I have been able to accomplish this with a feature. I am finding the when deployed the new default.aspx page shows up in the following directory C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\ProjectInsightSPMaster_ProjectInsightLayoutFeature\defaultpage I also have a default.aspx located in the following directory.  This is the one that is deployed with the site definition. C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\SiteTemplates\PISP    When I browse to a site in IE, it is in fact looking at the correct (new) default.aspx page which is located in the FEATURES directory.  How does SharePoint know to use this default.aspx page instead of the one located in the SiteTemplates directory.  This is confusing to me.  Can you explain?   Is this the correct way of deploying an updated default.aspx?   dave
