How to show left menu and center of page contents in an ASPX page?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Scenario : Within sharepoint site user will click on a hyperlink which should take him to a new page and this new page will have the same header/footer (so I will create a copy of the masterpage with just header,footer) but the left side menu navigation will dynamically change and for each click event within the menu, the center of the page will show varying texts plus videos.

Need some directions as how I can acheive the above? What should I use to build menu control and similarly how to control the center text of the page.  

Can I acheive the entire above using webpart and if so how? Do I need to use user control for menu and for center text display webpart ? or else any other best options?  

Please suggest.

How do I get a new column I created to show-up in the DisplayForm.aspx page?

Here's a little introduction to how I got here:

Downloaded the WSS Help Desk application template and installed it and now my company wants to add a column to the ServiceRequests list called "Service Request Type".  So I created a new column and made it a choice of "Incident" or "Change".  I then customized the EditForm.aspx and NewForm.aspx to provide the new entry.  Other than losing the ability to attach documents the forms are working perfectly and collecting the data.  My problem is that when I open the DisplayForm.aspx and attempt to add a new row and use the <xsl:value-of select="@SRType" /> I don't see any values displayed.  Also, I can browse  the Data Source Library and click on Service Requests > Show Data and see the new list item but when I choose the button for "Insert Selected Fields as...", the Item is greyed-out.  

Tried manually inserting code based-on similiar entries but still no luck.  Here's what I have so far:

      <td width="190px" valign="top" class="ms-formlabel">
         <H3 class="ms-standardheader">
           <nobr>Service Request Type</nobr>
      <td width="400px" valign="top" class="ms-formbody"><

How to create a webpart page with a site menu on the left?



This might be another novice question but i really googled and searched this site and didnt find any answers (even though topics close to this are discussed, this one isnt).

Scenario: I have a webpart i wrote that shows people who has birthday and provides sorting tools (in exact month/ exact day/ name contains string). This webpart has to be displayed as the page's content (in the center, its ~900px wide). This page must have the site menu on the left as well so users can navigate freely.

I tried to create a new webpart page in MOSS and successfully placed the webpart there, but the page wont have the left site menu.

I need that left menu!

I tried creating a web page from a template with a strip (sorry cant find better word to explain that) on the left but that strip only allows to add more webparts, and doesnt allow to show the menu there.

How do i show the website menu (the one with links to Tasks, Lists, Users etc, the one that always shows itself on the /sites/sitename/ page and when viewing Lists) on my web part page?

Or do i have to go other way, meaning, not by using a web part page, but with some other way, like create an aspx page or something?

Please help.

Launch CMD File From ASPX Page


My organization uses a CMD file to install updated files for a major enterprise application. Currently, we send out an email to users with a link to the file and instructions to run it, BUT inevitably users don't update their machines until their in field and try to start the app.


We're now liking the idea of using an ASPX page to prompt the users to run the updates and to capture the fact that the updates have been run. I realize that we can't capture the success or failure of the update. But we'd like to capture the user accessed the page.


Is it possible to embed into the markup for the page a link to the file on the local intranet that the users can click on to run the file?

The user accessing the page would capture that they did just that. We'd deal with wether or not the update was actually installed or if it failed later with them directly.

Visual Studio closes itself by opening aspx-Page designer after Windows Update


Hey Guys,

I've a problem with my Visual Studio.

On the 13th of August 2010 i installed a Windows update on my vista sp2 pc. For this date my Visual Studio 2008 sp 1 always has closed itself by opening an aspx-page in designer view. There is no error message just closing the window. I restored a backup of my windows from the time before updating it and it helped, i could open aspx pages in the design view till the update has been installed again automatically after rebooting the pc. I can't disable windows updates, cause it's my pc at work and safety is very important. I hope you could help me out of this disaster.

Flash player doesn't send cookies while requesting an aspx page



 I'm developing a web-site, that uses SWFUpload for multiple files upload to the server. Page, that uploades files, is accessable only to registered user. Authentication is done via web-forms (authentication mode="Forms" in Web.config). Flash uploades files to special web page - upload.aspx. In IE everything works great, but Flash player in non-IE browser (in Firefox, for example) does not send any cookies to upload.aspx. Because of it no sesion and no authentication information is available in this page.

 I can pass all the information, necessary for uploading, in GET-parameters, which upload.aspx recieve. But this is a serious security hole and I don't want to expose session information. I can pass session identifier in GET-request. But the question is the following: how can I restore session information from the session identifier? How can I make HttpContext.Current.User point to currently logged in user in this case?

Any help will be appreciated.

User Control not accessing the value of the properties send to it from the aspx page.


I have a dynamic accordion on a page. Set its datasource to an object of paged data source.The user control is in the accordions content template. When i was writing code the properties were showing but after giving the values of databases as


<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname1")%>' Property2='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"columname2")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>


but the values shows null, these properties are shown as textboxes text property by user control.

MoreOver when I checked the values of database Items.So i made a textbox instead of usercontrol here as

<asp:TextBox ID="txtTest" runat="server" Text='<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"Columname1")%>'></asp:TextBox>

It is showing the correct value. And if i pass the value directly it is also showing correctly like

<uc:UserControl1  runat="server" Property1="XYZ")%>' Property2="ABC")%>'  ></uc:UserControl1>

. where I am wrong

the problem is eval is not passing the value to usercont

Way of showing ID on the DispForm.aspx page without programming?

Is there a way of showing the ID system field on the DispForm.aspx page without programming.
I don't want to use a dataview, as new fields being added in the future won't appear automatically anymore this way on the DispForm.aspx page. 

I found somewhere that I could use a calculated field, with as formula =ID (so, in fact just copying the value of the ID field in the calculated field), which is one option.

Are there other options/solutions known?
