Custom Control Design-Time SiteMap Provider Error


Greetings - I was referred here by MSDN forums hope this is the right place -  

I have a custom control (:WebControl) that renders web.sitemap in a specific way. While it runs error free and produces the expected result, at Design-Time it complains

Error Creating Control - MyControl  The provider 'AspNetXmlSiteMapProvider' specified for the defaultProvider does not exist in the providers collection.

I have discovered that the error is cause by this line of code:

string div = string.Format("<div class='{0}' id='{1}'>{2}</div>", this.CssClass, this.ID.ToString(), EnumerateNodesRecursive(SiteMap.RootNode, level));

or more specifically, by the reference to SiteMap.RootNode - I am not clear what is missing thoough because I have configured the SiteMapProvider in web.config as this:

        <add name="AspNetXmlSiteMapProvider" 
             type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider, System.Web, Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" 

How do I persist custom complex types in design-time


Let's say that I've got one custom webcontrol called MyControl.

public partial class MyControl: WebControl {
public IComplex Complex { get; set; }

The control is a very simple control but it holds an instance of a complex type that is accessable through a property. The property has the propertytype IComplex

public interface IComplex {
string Name { get; set; }
List<IComplex> Children {get;}

Let's say that I am able to pick one of several different types of object that derives from IComplex in design-time and assign it to the controls property "Complex" property.

Naturally I would like to persist this information to the HTML-View in a user-friendly way.

Because we don't know what type the user has picked there is no way to instansiate the type if we don't persist the name of that type. The Type could also contain more properties than the Interface the controls property is refering.

<cc1:MyControl id="MyControl1" runat="server">
<Complex> <!-

UI on the Fly: Use the .NET Framework to Generate and Execute Custom Controls at Run Time


Creating UI controls on the fly can be accomplished via run-time code generation. And there are lots of reasons to do so. Generating these controls once and then reusing them as needed is more efficient than generating the controls each time. Read on.

Data Binding: Give Your Everyday Custom Collections a Design-Time Makeover


In this article, Paul Ballard shows how you can provide data binding support for your custom collections to enable sorting, searching, and editing in as simple a manner as possible. In addition, he shows how to make all of these features available in the Windows and Web Forms Designers, just like an ADO.NET DataSet.

Slow load time of custom assembly on x64 compared to x86.

I am developing an application that automatically generates assemblies using the CSharpCodeProvider (.Net Framework 3.5).  These assemblies contain a single class with a very large number of local variables and methods.  After compilation I create an instance of this class (using Activator.CreateInstance) to be used elsewhere in the application.  When the application is deployed on a 32-bit system (tested on Win 7 Prof 32-bit and on Win XP) the CreateInstance method returns after 1 or 2 seconds, i.e. it first JITs the assembly before creating the instance.  However, on a 64-bit system (tested on Win 7 Home 64-bit, Win Server 2003 64-bit and Win Server 2008 64-bit) CreateInstance takes up to 5 minutes to return. Is there any reason why it would be that much slower on a 64-bit machine? I have tried many different options when compiling, such as setting the platform to x64, using the /optimize flag, etc, but none of these have made a difference. I also tried calling PrepareMethod on all the method in the class.  When I do this in the 32-bit environment, it takes approximately 10 seconds.  In the 64-bit environment it takes more than 3 minutes. As a last resort I tried ngen before constructing the object, but this made no difference in the execution time.

Custom "Remember me next time"

Hello everybody. I am learning the login control. ASP.NET Videos are really helpful. So what I did so far I am showing you : This is the login div of MasterPage.master : <div id="login"> <p style="padding-top: 30px; text-align:center"> <asp:LoginView ID="MasterLoginView" runat="server"> <LoggedInTemplate> Welcome <asp:LoginName ID="MasterLoginName" runat="server" /> </LoggedInTemplate> <AnonymousTemplate> Welcome Guest </AnonymousTemplate> </asp:LoginView> </p> <p style="text-align: center"> [ <asp:LoginStatus ID="MasterLoginStatus" runat="server" LogoutAction="Redirect" LogoutPageUrl="~/LoggedOut.aspx" /> ]   </p> </div> This is the Login.aspx :<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPage.master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Login.aspx.cs" Inherits="Login" Title="Untitled Page" %><asp:Content ID="MainContent" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContentPlaceHolder" Runat="Server"><h1>Please Login</h1><div style="width: 245px; height: 100px; padding: 20px 20px

Overriding web.config in sharepoint webpart/using custom membership in web part

I'm developing a web part for MOSS 2007. The web part is being deployed to a web application which utilizes forms-based authentication, and role/membership providers to control users. The membership table has been edited to include addition user info (I am aware, that this isn't the best way to handle additional user, i.e. profiles etc., however, this is a requirement from another department). Since my web part needs to access this information, I was thinking of implementing a custom membership provider. So far I've followed: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/6tc47t75.aspx and I've got my custom membership class, and a very stripped down membershipprovider-class. But how do I enable/use this membership provider in my web part? I've tried creating a simple web.config in the "WebPartCode" folder of my solution, next to my webpart code file, with connection string and membership provider tags. But I don't even really know how to build/reference/use the membership provider itself, so I don't know what else I need to do. I've built a C# class library project with the two classes (membershipprovider and custom membershipuser) and compiled it and installed it in the global assembly cache - is this correct? and how do I access them from here? Hope someone can help

Cannot enable Ribbon Edit Tab buttons and "connect" them to a list item in my custom webpart

I have one list with some custom fields and I want to develop a custom page. So, I created an ASPX page and added my custom webpart. This webpart has just a RichTextField, in edit mode, "linked" to one item of the list, like below: SPSite _SPSite = SPContext.Current.Site; SPWeb _SPWebProjects = _SPSite.OpenWeb("/Projects"); SPList _SPListProject = _SPWebProjects.GetList("/Projects/Lists/Project"); int _ID = Convert.ToInt32(this.Page.Request.QueryString["ID"]); RichTextField _RTF = new RichTextField(); _RTF.ID = "RTF"; _RTF.ControlMode = SPControlMode.Edit; _RTF.FieldName = "History"; _RTF.ItemContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); _RTF.RenderContext = SPContext.GetContext(HttpContext.Current, _ID, _SPListProject.ID, _SPListProject.ParentWeb); this.Controls.Add(_RTF);   Then, I "turned on" the edit tab on the ribbon by doing the follow: protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e) { SPRibbon _CurrentRibbon = SPRibbon.GetCurrent(this.Page); _CurrentRibbon.TrimById("Ribbon.WebPartPage"); _CurrentRibbon.MakeTabAvailable("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.MakeContextualGroupInitiallyVisible("Ribbon.ListForm.Edit", string.Empty); _CurrentRibbon.Minimized = false; _CurrentRi

Creating Custom ASP.NET Control for use on a SharePoint 2010 OOTB WebPart

I am currently trying to develop a custom asp.net control that can be deployed to SharePoint 2010 and then included on something like a New item form. I have been able to build the control as part of a webpart but it needs to be done as a stand alone control that can be used on various webparts including the out of the box webparts like the WebPartPages:DataFormWebPart. Are there any good examples of building a custom control, deploying it to SharePoint and then using SharePoint designer to add that control to an existing web part?

Problem with Content Query Webpart and Custom Userfields

Dear Community, I am using Sharepoint 2007's content query webpart to access content types from 2 lists each contained in a different sitecollection. To achieve this, I used this tutorial: http://www.heathersolomon.com/blog/articles/CustomItemStyle.aspx. The tutorial worked great. By using the property CommonViewFields and modifing the XML Stylesheets accordingly, i could access almost every field. Even User Fieldtypes like editor and author were accessible by adding (editor,User) or (author,User) to the CommonViewFields property. But when I tried to access the custom made userfield "Username" in the same way (adding Username,User to the property), the webpart threw an error and couldn't be displayed anymore. When I changed it to Username,Text , no error occured but it naturally didn't show up, since it is the wrong fieldtype. I hope some of you can help me, since all my researches on this topic only brought up some more people with the same problem, but no solution to it. Thanks in advance, SoundofSilence

Custom panel - missing design time support for controls.

I’m trying to implement a custom panel, one that will behave kind of like the standard Canvas panel. The implementation is done and it is working when I add components in the xaml, but what is not working is move and resize of components in the designer. In the designer each component shows the ‘selected frame’ when selected, but it cannot be moved or resized. Can someone point me to what I’m missing, or an article that describes how do add this support?.   The reason I’m not deriving from the existing Canvas is mainly because I want to understand how it works and how to implement it manually.   Thanks
