Page Layout and Text Layout Buttons Disabled on Ribbon

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I am trying to create a publish site in Sharepoint 2010, and I am using the Ribbon control.  Currently, I am having trouble adding and changing content on my site, due to both the Page Layout and Text Layout buttons being disabled.  I have been trying to figure out what security or feature needs to be active to get these enabled again.  Any help would be appreciated.

Creating a ribbon flyoutanchor similar to the page layout flyout


Hi All,

I've asked this before and got no answer. I've simplified my code which may help.

The current code displays icons to the left and text to the right (similar to Page > Share & Track > Alert Me). I want it to display like Page > Page Actions > Page Layout (with the text below the icon and in 4 columns). I'm using the CMDUI.XML as a guide to no avail.

Below is my code. Any help is appreciated.

More text fileds in new page layout.



I have a problem with edditing my new page layout based on Entrprise wikipage in SharePoint 2010. I made my own template in SD and implemented in SharePoint. I have here lines with text which is like form and I would like to let user create new page based on this layout and let him fill in text into text fields. (e.g. => Line 10 => "Server name" => and user will fill in text filed next to this "Server XYZ"). I tried to use different fileds (e.g. RichHtmlField or TextField) but they have a uniqu ID, so if I add more than one, after filling the whole page and saving it all fileds have the same text as the last filled field.

Is it possible to add more text fields to ONE page, so user can fill it like a form and after saving it will save the contetnt of fileds?


THX for quick response, it is really urgent.

Panels messing up page layout



On a few different pages in my web app I have a scrollable panel that contains a gridview. When there is nothing in the panel display as I want it to, however when the grid view is populated with data it stretches the panel across the page which looks awful, it means the panel is partially stretched across the window but is still scrollable

Anyone know why this might be happening?



Crystal Reports can grow fields with large amounts of text layout problem


A can grow field in the details section of a crystal report may have so much text that the section will be larger than the remaining space available on the page (the space below the previous record).  The section has vertical lines on it with Extend to bottom of section when printing set to true.  The section starts on a new page (and may continue on the following one).  I want it to start on the page where the last record was laid out, and continue to the new page without leaving a gap with vertical lines on it.  I'm using Crystal Reports 9 and I can't work out how to do it. Has anyone got a solution?

How to Layout Web Page?

Hello everybody. I am new in web development and I am designing a web based application now a days. This is my semester project and as well as my first web application. So I have designed the home page using fixed layout taking my pc's 1600x900 resolutions under consideration. I have tested it in IE, Firefox, and Chrome. But I am getting a horizontal scrollbar. And I have come to know that use of fixed layout reduce the portability of web site. I need some information/web link and help on liquid layout. I am collecting images from various free template provider website for my web pages and also taking concepts from that. Any help, any information will be very helpful to me. I have uploaded my project (so far) here: http://uploading.com/files/d15133c1/ProjectWork2.zipx/. And also I have uploaded an image of my designed page here: http://lh6.ggpht.com/_7ii6RI_rc38/THlX-byHDMI/AAAAAAAAAIA/jDWqApfjIno/s800/WebPage.jpg so that you can see what my thought is. Thank you.

How to align text to top position on Ribbon buttons?

Hello SharePoint Experts, I have a custom masterpage which is derived from v4.master and it uses the default SP Foundation 2010 Ribbon. As you all know,the default Ribbon buttons such as New Document,Upload Document,Alert Me,etc, have text at the bottom below the icons. Ribbon buttons such as CheckOut,CheckIn,etc have their text aligned to the right of the icons. My requirement is to have all the text on Ribbon groups and buttons aligned to the top such that the image is below the text.(By default it is the other way round). I tried manipulating the CMDUI.XML file located at 14\TEMPLATE\GLOBAL but no use. I also tried overriding the Ribbon CSS(from COREV4.CSS) but it was of no use as well. Does anyone have inputs on how to get this done? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.Regards, Gautam Kaikini, MCTS WSS 3.0 Application Development.
